Maxfactor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation

It's not often I like foundations, they're either too thick, too thin, too orange, too pale, they stick to patches on my skin or they just don't stick to my skin at all. The Maxfactor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation, try and say that when your drunk! sounds promising, it claims to have 'the hold of a primer, correction of a concealer and finish of a foundation,' and it also claims to last all day, but does it live up to it's name?!

The first time I applied this foundation I hated it, despite it's claims, I went on auto mode and applied my primer, then concealer and then the foundation, because that's what you do, right?! not with this foundation you don't! The foundation was sticking to my face, clogging and becoming patchy, nightmare product?! Nightmare application more like! On my part of course! I took the foundation off and reapplied it three more times before I realised that this foundation works best on it's own. I'm not sure if it's because it already has all three elements in the product, but applying this over other primers and concealers just doesn't work, for me at least. I find this product works best on well moisturised skin and if you need the extra concealer, apply it on top. 

I have actually fell in love with this foundation, though I have to admit, I thought the only thing I would love is seeing the back of it! How wrong was I?! This foundation applies smoothly, is super lightweight and long lasting,it gives a matte yet glowing finish, contains SPF 20 and has 6 shades to choose from, not everyone will find a shade, but I think mine's a near on perfect match, so I'm happy.

I like to complete my skincare routine ensuring I moisturise well before applying this foundation, I then apply dots of the product all over my face and blend in with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I then apply my under eye concealer, followed by the rest of my makeup and ensure I finish with a powder like Soap and Glory's One Heck of a Blot. 

What I love about this foundation is that it blends easily, feels so leightweight that I often forget I have any on, it covers spots really well and does indeed look flawless! The staying power of this really depends on the condition of my skin and the finishing powder I have used, yesterday my skin hated it, I used a new powder and my skin was really oily, it lasted a mere three hours before it started to become patchy, however I have a funny feeling this was down to the powder, today my skin loved it, I used my S&G powder and its still on now, it's 8.45pm, I applied it at 7.45am, so a good 11 hours! I haven't tested the product without a powder, however I have heard fab reviews even when one hasn't been used!

I love this foundation and would highly recommend it! Have you tried it yet?
