      never again....

      I'm ALWAYS searching for the perfect foundation and have wasted so much money in my quest to find one, a lot of them have ended up in the bin and sadly this was one of them. When this foundation came out I couldn't wait to try it! The massive claims of being a 3 in 1 primer, foundation and concealer with the promise of a flawless finish totally sold it to me but unfortunately it was a disappointment.

      Max Factor is a high-street/drug store brand which is available in Boots, Superdrug and some supermarkets. I haven't tried a massive amount of there products to be honest so can't comment on there overall quality.

      THE CLAIMS:
      --------------------

      * 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.

      * Lasts all day, giving a flawless finish

      * Primer gives a smooth base for hold

      * Concealer corrects for a flawless look

      MY EXPERIENCE:
      ----------------------------

      When I went to purchase the foundation I did notice there wasn't a very wide range of shades available. I managed to find a good match in the shade 'Bronze' however I wouldn't say my skintone is 'bronze' at all. I can imagine that if you are particularly fair or dark-skinned you would struggle to find a good match.

      I applied the foundation and the first thing I noticed was how quick is was drying. I didn't get much time to blend it before it dried to a matte finish. I put this down to the fact it was foundation and concealer in one and initially thought this may be a good thing and might of meant the foundation was going to remain matte throughout the day and may actually last until I got home from work. Sadly I was wrong, although the coverage was good and it looked great when I left the house as the day went on it became patchy looking which was awful. I tried if for a couple more days but then had a massive breakout. I think this was because I wasn't using my primer as you supposedly didn't need to with this product. This was the end for me. I struggle to keep my skin blemish-free as it is so I gave up and binned it.

      HOW TO APPLY:
      --------------------------

      * Match the foundation with the skin tone of your jawline to find the right shade for you.
      * Always apply in good natural light to ensure even coverage.
      * Put a small amount on the back of your hand, then coat both sides of a foundation brush.
      * Apply small amounts in the centre of your face and blend outwards where needed.


      SHADES AVAILABLE:
      ---------------------------------

      There are 6 shades available in the range which isn't many at all, as I mentioned before I think a lot of people would struggle to find a good match.

      PACKAGING:
      -------------------

      One thing I was impressed with was the packaging, it was a glass bottle with a gold and black pump and a clear top. The packaging looked and felt high-quality and I love foundations with a pump.

      VALUE FOR MONEY:
      --------------------------------

      The price is £11.99 which is quite a lot of a high street foundation and considering I had to throw mine away I wouldn't say it's great value for money.

      CONCLUSION:
      ---------------------
      Obviously I wasn't impressed and won't be repurchasing! The search for the perfect foundation goes on!
