Max Factor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation - Review

I have been using Estée Lauder Double Wear for a while now and I like it. I love the coverage and how long lasting it is but I also find a few problems in it and I'm not sure that it is worth the hefty price tag. Before repurchasing I have decided to try a few alternatives starting with this one.


The first positive for this foundation is the price tag. At £12 this is less than half the price of Double Wear. I also much prefer the packaging which has a pump for easy application. 

The colour I have is Beige and is a great match to my skin tone. Rarely for a drugstore foundation, it is actually a better match than Double Wear which was slightly too yellowy for my complexion. 

This product applies well. I only need a small amount, less than two pumps to cover my face. I blend this with my fingers and it applies smoothly and doesn't cling to any areas. The foundation is really build-able and doesn't go cakey if you need more coverage. The coverage is good, I would say medium. The foundation is long lasting and doesn't shift all day.

This product claims to be 3 in 1: primer, concealer and foundation. Personally I use a concealer with this but it does a great job of covering blemishes due to how well it builds. Although this does apply well, I have been using a primer to help the foundation last longer; which I think it needs.

So far I am enjoying using this but I am not blown away. It leaves my skin smooth but I'm not sure that is how as much coverage or lasts as long as Double Wear.

Can you recommend a foundation for me? 



  1. I've been wanting to try this for a while, I love Max Factor :) I've only tried one of their foundations before but the lightest shade was too dark for me, so frustrating!! I'm using the new rimmel stay matte one atm and am actually really impressed by it :)
    Love Holly x
