Hello there! I am now on the dating scene, after my 18 year marriage to my cheat of an ex ended 4 years ago smile I am having lots of fun, but the guy I am currently seeing is into snogging (do people still call it that?!) in a big way. All good. However, my foundation is getting rubbed off, leaving me with bare, pink skin! I'd love to hear your recommendations of long-lasting compact foundations (on a budget), so that I can touch up my make-up quickly and easily after each sesh! I hear great things about the Max Factor one, but any others? Must have decent coverage and duration. Thanks so much.

I've tried a few in my time. I used to use a Body Shop one but for me the formula is a bit dry. This one is more creamy and seems to stay put!

I always use the Max Factor one. Apply it with a Real Techniques brush and just add a bit more with my finger where I want extra coverage. I've bought other compacts but they're never as good as this one.

Thanks both!
