Maxfactor Foundation

By now you all know my love for Maxfactor, I am yet to find a product from their products that I haven’t liked. I think this is also due to us having a fairly small range of all the best products in South Africa.

I have written out my love for their blushers which you can read here, their primer and their lipsticks. Today I thought I would share with you my thoughts on some of the Maxfactor foundation / base products that I have been loving!

  • Maxfactor Miracle Match Foundation that promises to blur and nourish – Maxfactor is one of my most favourite pharmacy picks, everything I have ever tried of theirs has been a winner from their primer to their amazing baked blushers. I just knew I would love this foundation too. The only down side is we don’t get many shades here in South Africa I think about 4, the shade I have (natural 50) is a little too dark for me but because I love the actual foundation so much I make it work with extra concealer to lighten up by under eyes, nose and chin. One of the main reasons I like this foundation so much is the fact that it does not contain SPF, don’t get me wrong for day time I’m all about the SPF but oh for night and photographers, I am just not about that casper life! It is so hard to find non SPF foundations these days! The coverage is medium, dewy and can be built up.

  • Lasting Performance Maxfactor foundation in 106 Natural – Much like the  Miracle Match Foundation this Maxfactor foundation does not contain any SPF and doesn’t come in that many shades however 106 natural is perfect for my skin tone. This is the perfect night time foundation it gives a flawless silky base that will not move all night long – don’t get me wrong you’d expect a long lasting foundation to be very matte but this one is definitely not matte it has a gorgeous glow/dewiness to it that can be powdered down or left.
  • Speaking of powdering down next up we have the Maxfactor creme puff pressed powder. This is probably one of the least chalky powders I have ever tried, it’s very light and gives an iridescence to the skin as apposed to a solid matte powdered base. This works so well onto of the lasting performance foundation, under the eyes for a slight bake or even as a top up at the end of the day.

Have you tried any Maxfactor foundations?
