This post is going to be a review of the new Max Factor products.
I was lucky enough to be sent some pieces, including Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3-in-1, nailpolish, eyeliner and more, from the lovely people at
Thank you so much - hope you will be satisfied with my review!
Now, on to the review!
1. Starting with the foundation:
Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3-In-1 Foundation is a multi-tasking foundation that is a primer, concealer and foundation in one. It was developed for women who want their foundation to easily deliver a long lasting professional finish, which diminishes the need for imperfection touch-ups and stops the undesirable midday shine. It contains “Micro Correctors” (I’m not sure what these are!) which are supposed to help protect from sweat and excess sebum. This also contains SPF20 which, if you are a frequent reader, will know that I always look for SPF in make-up products.
The foundation itself, is quite liquidy in texture, which makes it really easy to apply and blend into the skin.
The shade I chose was Nude 47, thinking it would suit my skin tone.
So, let me show you the coverage on my face, since I guess that’s the important part if you are looking at this review!
It was really easy to apply and it covered most of the redness on my skin and evened out the skin as well. So for the concealer part and foundation part, this is pretty good, it leaves the skin soft although I can feel I have foundation on if I touch my face.
What about the primer part? I deliberately didn’t apply my own Primer because I wanted to test out the claim that it keeps your face matte all day. And you know what? It’s actually really good! I was shine free 10 hours, which is a really good deal. The foundation also contains SPF, but this isn’t really something extra because a lot of foundations contain SPF. And even if your foundation contains SPF, you still need to use a face cream to make sure your face is fully protected from sun damage. Well, I've got to say this is by far one of the best foundations I have ever had! It leaves you're skin so soft and silky, also it's so easy to apply and doesn't really clog up on the face.
What do you think?
2. Lets try the eyeliner:
Max Factor - Colour X-Pert Waterproof Eyeliner - his eyeliner is a liquid eyeliner, that has several colours - the colour I'm showing today is black.
The most important thing when selecting your liquid eyeliner is to have a good look at the applicator. This one is made of a kind of sponge and shaped into a point, so it’s ideal. It means you can apply a thin line or a thicker one and the sponge gives you so much more control than a brush. If you haven’t used a liquid eyeliner before, this is an easy applicator to perfect your straight line and flick motion with.
The eyeliner is really pigmented, and applies great colour after just one application. With the applicator, it is simple to use and gives you a lot of control. The eyeliner dries quickly and leaves a stunning black look on your line above your eye lashes. It has good staying power, and lasts throughout the day. It is water proof, but doesn't take a lot to come off with make up remover.
I really love this product. I would definitely recommend it!
3. Really important for me - my nails:
Personally, I've always wanted the absolute red. This is a sophisticated sense of color and glamour that epitomizes classic. This is very typical and expressive look, and I dominated and ended in 110 shades of Red Passion Glossfinity.
The formula is quite good, it’s thick without being gloopy, and it’s easy to apply. It takes two coats to reach opacity.
It says “for up to 7 days” on the bottle. I can’t remember if I have ever actually worn a polish for that many days in a row!
Your nails say a lot, but no nail choosing can be a key moment. This is a personal message that others noticed. They see you every day, seven days a week. So the nails should not only look good, but they look good in those seven days.
I always do my nails with the half moon manicure. You like it too?
Max Factor Colour Elixir lipsticks are available in 15 shades. I love the shade 853 Chilli.
“Chilli” is a dark red kinda plum color, with a bit of shimmer in it. The color is really nice for fall and again I like using just a tiny bit for day.
and here the final look:
