Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation SPF 20: Review, Pictures

Max Factor Facefinity light ivory

You know, I’m really rather taken with Max Factor’s new foundation offering. And that’s despite having weaned myself off more matte finishes in favour of something a bit dewier (lately Origins Plantscription foundation has been my cover-up of choice).

But you know what this really reminds me of? None other than Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere, just with a tad less luminosity, less coverage and less shade choice. But both products have adjustable coverage levels, set on the skin, feel dry and smooth to the touch, have that second-skin thang going on and really do stick around all day.

The finish is quite perfected, yet somehow looks quite natural at the same time – probably because, despite what it's billed as, the coverage level isn’t heavy at all. I’d describe it as light-to-medium (whereas the Chanel product’s more medium-to-full). Facefinity claims to be a primer, foundation and concealer in one but I totally need a separate concealer – this did nothing to hide my dark circles and the second head that has attractively sprouted from my cheek.

What I don’t need with this though, is powder – my MAC Blot powder is languishing idly in a drawer. This doesn’t wear off my oily t-zone, and it doesn’t settle into fine lines or cling to dry patches, either.  The SPF 20 is another added bonus.

Like all matte products, this will probably not be great for dry skin. But if you’re normal, oily or combination, want a matte, even finish without caking on the product and need a foundation that will go the distance, I think you’ll get on very well with this. It's a very reasonable €14.99.

What do think, is Facefinity floating your boat? If you’ve already tried it, share your feelings in the comments!
