Max Factor Xperience weightless foundation

As you guys probably know by now I’m a tad obsessed with foundation and Max Factor do some good ‘uns so I was expecting superb things from this and I’m pleased to say that it delivered in almost every way. There’s always an almost

The packaging is a simple plastic squeezy tube – think Rimmels lasting finish. I love this because it means I’m not worried about glass smashing when I’m carrying it around in my bag and thanks to the little squeezy dispenser you can choose exactly how much product you need; anything that stops me wasting foundation is a plus

I should mention right away that this only gives a light/medium coverage so if you’re having a bad skin day or generally opt for more coverage then this probably wont be for you! Having said that I have horrible breakouts around my chin so I applied a nice layer of this foundation and then just dotted concealer where needed and it looked pretty damn good. Even if I do say so myself :)

My shade is Beige Linen 50

This claims to be a weightless foundation and I’d be happy to vouch for that. When I applied this it genuinely felt like I had nothing on my skin at all. It also manages to blend fantastically well (and easily!) so if it wasn’t for the flawless finish you wouldn’t know you’d even applied anything, which is pretty much the exact result I’m after from a good foundation!!

What I found odd – and bad- about this was how it went from matte to greasy so quickly. When this is first applied it sets to a beautiful, slightly powdery matte finish and it feels brilliant; soft, smooth and very similar to my natural skin. However, after about 4 or 5 hours my t-zone was incredibly oily looking and I was definitely in need of a little dusting of powder

I’ve worn this quite a lot since I picked it up recently and even after a whole days wear there isn’t any patchiness, streaks or dry areas. Overall I think it’s a great product and thanks to the natural jojoba it should be the perfect skin pampering foundation to wear over the winter months. Not bad for £9.99 methinks

Oh and a quick note on application! Even though this goes on evenly without much effort I’ve found that my skin tends to absorb a lot of the liquid as it’s applied so in order to use as little as possible for natural, sheer, even coverage I’ve been using my AVON foundation brush (my fingers and a sponge have done the trick too but the end result just wasn’t quite as good)
This brush isn’t nearly as dense as the ones I normally use but I’ve found it actually aids the application of an extremely fine layer of product :)

Has anyone else tried this? Reckon it’s as good as other foundations in the same price range?
