Max Factor Face Finity Foundation REVIEW

 Hello darlings

It a new year which means a new foundation, right? I can't count the number of foundations in my collection, i'm always hunting for the perfect one. A foundation that is medium coverage, velvet finish. With a good colour match, not too pink but no too yellow tone. Maybe i need to try some high end foundations, can anyone recommend any good ones? But today's review is another drugstore foundation, the Max Factor Face Finity foundation. I have had this for about a month and i am ready to share with you my thoughts. Grab a cup of tea and we will get started.

My Skin Type: First of all for all my new readers i shall tell you my skin type. I have dry-combination skin (dry t-zone and chin) I have very pale skin and 9 times out of 10 i'm the lightest shade in the selection.
Packaging: The packaging is a standard glass bottle with a pump, nothing fancy but nothing obnoxious. I much perfect a pump to a pourer (i think thats the right term?) Much easier to get the right amount and not waste any product.  

Shade: I purchased the shade light ivory, i ordered this online on Amazon so i wasn't able to swatch any shades, this was the lightest one available so i went with it. I tend to avoid shades that have the word rose in as they tend to be way too pink toned. This one is pale which is great but does have a pink undertone but you can make it work. Although sadly it did oxidize slightly throughout the day but i think during the summer this shade will be much better.
Texture: The product applied nicely, very smooth.  It was too runny or too thick.

Coverage: The coverage was good, its quite light. Max Factor advertises it as a 3 in 1 product, a primer, foundation and concealer. I don't use a primer with this foundation as i find it lasts really well, but as i said in the beginning i do have dry skin so i find foundations last really well on me. Although advised as a concealer i definitely had to add concealer, it was not enough coverage for my dark circles or acne scares. But for a natural everyday makeup look the coverage is good Or for someone that doesn't have a 11 month old.... Also it has SPF 20 which is brilliant. You don't need a lot of product, one pump is plenty.

Price: I paid £3.99 on Amazon when they were on offer but full price it is £12.99. I'm not sure i'd pay full price, maybe if i tried another shade and i was having a good skin day. But i do need a little more coverage and a more yellow toned foundation. But if you have good skin and find your right shade then this is a nice foundation.

I'd love to know have you tried this foundation? What are you thoughts?

  1. I love these kind of posts! I will love to try that foundation xxx

    1. Thank you, i'd love to know what you think of it.

  2. I've just finished this foundation, and I agree with everything you've said - I found this slightly too orange for my skin tone so next time I would get a different shade. I love trying out new types of foundation though, so I'm now trying out the e.l.f foundation.
