Review: Max Factor All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation

Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 foundation holds like a primer, corrects like a concealer with the long lasting finish of a liquid foundation with SPF 20.

Good evening my lovelies! I couldn’t wait to post this because I know how many of you are waiting to hear how I got on! So here it is… Recently I’ve been using No7 Beautifully Matte foundation. I’ve been enjoying it but I’ve felt like a change. So I popped into superdrug and picked this up. The thing that attracted me to it was the 3 In 1 aspect. Anything that works on 3 common problems is good in my book. I’ve heard good things and not so good things about this foundation so I thought I would put it to the test myself.

Review
First off, I’m used to the full coverage of my No7 foundation. So when I tried it on my face at first I thought this was going to be too thin for what I like. I was surprised that it builds up nicely. Usually when a foundation is a medium coverage, it feels like I’m wearing a mask because I’m trying to build it up. But I was delighted that it felt light on my face. It’s setting time is pretty average so you have time to blend. The finish I was most shocked about. It was Matte! Usually when I buy a Matte foundation 9/10 times its not that matte. I usually look in the mirror half way through my shift at work and I can see a sheen on my nose, forehead and chin where i can see my foundation has moved. Not today! Although I did have tiny marks in my expression lines, it was no where near as bad as it used to be! I got a bit hot half way through the day and I could feel my face sweating a little. Didn’t effect my foundation at all. My skin felt silky smooth all day. It also did a good job on the one spot I have at the moment on my nose. The pump, by the way, has this brilliant close-open option so fear not when you lose or break the main plastic cap!

Conclusion.
The primer-concealer-foundation combination of this product is no joke. It does what it says on the tin so it’s perfect for people prone to oily/spotty skin. To those who have dry skin, I wouldn’t recommend using this as it will emphasise dry patches, but this is perfect for those who have normal to combination and oily skin. The only bad thing about this product is the lack of shades. If you have pale skin, my choice was light ivory 40 which suited me just fine. It doesn’t cake, streak or fade. I was very impressed with how fresh I looked throughout the day. The high SPF is a major selling point for me too. This foundation retails at 11.99 so if you are still looking for a solid affordable foundation, you can definitely try Max Factors All-Day Flawless 3 in 1.
