The 500 Series have a light pink to pink beige and mixture of deeper pink and coral beige tones, except for 504 and 509. 512-49 is one shade darker than 511, a good natural color for man on camera. These highly pigmented foundations were originally formulated by Cinema Secrets founder Maurice Stein for use by fellow makeup artists. Over the years, the cosmetic has not only gained recognition among film- and beauty-industry professionals and entertainers, but also has set the standard for medical and salon applications. The creamy formula applies like a second skin yet provides full coverage to diminish skin discolorations, birthmarks, burn scars, even large body tattoos! All Ultimate Foundations are free of mineral oil, lanolin, and petroleum products. High pigmentation is the key to coverage, and durable high-quality ingredients make this cosmetic last up to 12 hours, even in humid climates (it's completely waterproof!). Soft, natural matte finish spreads farther than most other foundations and will not cake or crease. Water- and perspiration-resistant, Ultimate Foundations will not stain clothing and are safe to apply on face and body.
