Graftobian Cake Foundation

  • Description

Due to variance in the display of color across different monitor types, color swatches may not be an exact match to actual product. Use for reference only. 

Graftobian Cake Foundation is loved for it's smooth and creamy water-activated formula and comes in a selection of 18 skin tone shades, 4 primary colors, and black and white.  This highly pigmented foundation applies easily with a moistened sponge, such as the Cosmetic Natural Sea Sponge, PPS-0142, or the Foam Hydra Sponge, PPS-0390.  You can achieve excellent adjustable coverage results, from a sheer wash for a hint of color to full coverage.  It’s perfect to use on oily  skins, and safe for sensitive skins, and especially ideal for hot/humid climate wear as it resists heat and moisture.  It dries to a smooth and streak free matte finish that needs no powdering.

The Cake foundation skin tone colors match the shades in the Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour Cremes, PPS-0047, so you can mix or match your face and body colors perfectly with smooth blending and long lasting results!  This low maintenance cake foundation is so versatile for face and body wear that stage and film performers prefer this brand over others for the finish it delivers that is light in texture without that "chalky" or streaky looking results.  It can even be used dry as a setting or finishing powder over a creme based foundation!

For an even more durable wear/water and rub resistant finish try this: instead of using water, mix
Graftobian Cake Foundation with Graftobian Magic Set Mixing and Lining Liquid, MM-1034.  It can also be finished with any setting spray, such as Graftobian Setting Spray, PPS-0021, to further seal and prevent transferring to clothing.

Application Instructions:  Moisten a sponge of your choice mentioned above (and make sure it's not overly wet) with water or mixing liquid.  Work the sponge, using a circular motion, across the cake until a smooth and creamy consistency is achieved.  Apply the color with a consistent dabbing or stippling motion, making sure to blend evenly.  As with all brands of cake foundation, work quickly to perfect the finish, and even out the coverage in areas where you need, it before it dries completely.  When dry, you can lightly buff the foundation to achieve a more soft and translucent, natural looking finish.   Removes easily from skin simply with soap and water or makeup wipes. 

Net Wt. 1 oz. / 28g

Ingredients: Mineral Oil, Water, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate SE, PEG-32, PEG-6, Lanolin Oil, Triethanolamine, Cetyl Alcohol, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.  May Contain
: Talc, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77499, CI 77491, CI 77492), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Chromium Hydroxide Green (CI 77289), Ultramarines (CI 77007).

PRO Tip: Do not use a foundation brush or triangular white cosmetic sponge for this type of foundation; it can leave definite streaks in your application.  Use only a hydra sponge or a sea sponge to achieve the smoothest, streak free finish.  Once it’s dry you can also lightly buff out the application with a brush.

You can also mix together Magic Set Mixing and Lining Liquid, MM-1034, (90%) with Graftobian Setting Spray, PPS-0021, (10%) to make a wetting mixture for the foundation that will be 100% waterproof and sweat proof in wear.

Graftobian's Cake Foundation

- 01st December 2015

I was a life time Max Factor user, so I found this chart PPC put out about the Graftobian version. The texture seems just fine for me but I figured that my MF color was not going to be an exact match in Graftobian, with colors being too light or dark. But...

Best Replacement for Max Factor

- 27th December 2014

Max Factor Pancake Makeup had been around for over 60 years, but the formulation and colors were so outdated and the texture too dry. Graftobian's cake makeup is far superior in color range, texture, and finish on skin and I can use it professionally in s...

Great Coverage, Great for Oily Skin

- 01st May 2014

I finally used up the last of my stash of Max Factor Pan Cake Makeup (used since high school) and decided to give this product a try as a replacement. I have very oily skin and acne so I need a product that I can apply for medium to full coverage, and doe...

Excellent Texture and Finish

- 25th February 2014

The other dry cake foundation brands, such as Ben Nye or Kryolan I have found to be too powdery or too dry in the finish. Also, the colors can be way off from true skin tones, like Max Factor's. My search is over with Graftobian. It has real skin tones a...

Graftobian Cake Foundation /Water Activated

- 13th November 2013

I adore this product, it works beautifully.

Better than Ben Nye

- 10th September 2013

I made the switch to this brand because I found the texture to be very smooth once it dried. Ben Nye cakes are too much like the old Max Factor water-activated pan cakes, which look more like dry powder on skin rather than foundation finish. This looks ...
