Max Factor Pan-Stick
China Doll complexion
I bought this mainly for the nostalgia factor but boy was I surprised at how smooth and creamy it made my skin look. I have used the most expensive department store foundations and they don't compare. My face actually feels like it's being gently caressed by this makeup! I'll never use another foundation again.

From Mother's Time--Discovered Anew!
At 65, I remember well, this Max Factor Pan Stick, which was my mother's make up, from my childhood. It was creamy and smelled so good. These many years later, I decided to try it for myself. I thought it would be good to cover the dark circles. Well, it is not only great for that, but it is now my entire base make up. I can use it heavily where needed, and lightly where my skin still looks okay. I can recommend this for anyone who works on stage or screen as well as all others! AND it still smells the same as in my memory.

Creamy, Gorgeous Coverage!!
I have used every high-end foundation and have never been happy until I found this! I used it in the past, but now that Max Factor is hard to find the Vermont Country Store came to my rescue! The new packaging is not as good as it was years ago, and the product is smaller, but it blends evenly and causes no skin problems whatsoever (and I'm prone to problems). I find that I do have to touch-up halfway through the day, but I've never found a foundation that lasted all day on me. The "fair" color is perfect for my skin...I'm as light as Nicole Kidman and burn in the sun. I truly hope the Vermont Country Store carries this product FOREVER!!

But I don't wear make-up!
That's what I said when I read the description of this item. But when I read the testimonials and how your customers raved about the Pan Stik, I just had to give it a try. I have Rosacea on my face, which basically means my skin looks red and irritated and I have bumps that look like blemishes. I had been using an under eye concealer which sort of helped tone down the redness. So, I sent for the Pan Stik, tried it, and now am a firm believer. It tones down the redness and blends well with my skin. Not much I can do about the bumps, but I like the product and would recommend it to others who might be as skeptical as I was.

Classics are the best
Easy to use with fingers, foundation brush, or out of the tube. Got 2 colors, one to match complexion and one for shading. Great coverage, smooth application, long wearing. Compact enough for travel. Last year lost an expensive foundation cream in Heathrow when informed that cream=liquid and the size was too large.

really nice makeup
I really like this makeup. I used to use it years ago, and so did my mom. It's nice to know that I can still buy it again (at Vermont Country Store). It goes on so smooth and creamy, yet it's not greasy and it stays on all day. It smells really nice too. The only problem I had was that it was a little too light for me (true beige) it's lighter than what I remember. I will have to order a darker shade. It would be nice to be able to get the sun tone shade that used to be available.

Pan Stik has been and is still a fantastic product.
Unfortunately, I am not able to obtain the shade
"Sun Tone" If anyone can help me find "Sun Tone"
I will buy at least 20 of them. Thank you

The Best Facial Foundation Ever Made!
When I was very young, I made a point of asking older women who had beautiful skin exactly what they used on their face -
Without exception, they all said 'Max Factor Pan Stik'.
Well of course I immediately tried it and saw what they meant. Pan Stik is creamy but not oily, it makes the skin look perfect all day long, does not wear off and keeps the skin moist.
There simply is nothing to take its place, and when it was discontinued here in the U.S., I panicked -
Thank you, Vermont Country Store, for carrying this GREAT product!!
