Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation Review

Sunday, 10 November 2013

When it comes to foundation, I tend to stick with what I know. I'm a self-confessed lover of full-coverage foundations, and having tried many in the past, I always stick with my Holy Grail beloved Estee Lauder Double Wear, occasionally dabbling in a bit of Armani or Revlon, but generally sticking with what I like best. However, when a new foundation launches, I can't help but be a bit intrigued to see how it matches up to my favourites. 

I was recently sent Max Factor's new Whipped Creme Foundation to try, and after being a tad dubious about it (I had visions of Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse, which I never found to be very dreamy at all - ick!) I gave it a go. I have to say, I am extremely impressed with this foundation - it has gone above and beyond my expectations. I honestly thought it would leave my skin looking patchy, wouldn't last at all and definitely wouldn't cover as much as I like, but I've been blown away by just how good it is. 

For just under a tenner, you get a foundation that honestly seems like it is worth a great deal more. This foundation feels beautiful on the skin and is totally gorgeous to apply, blending into the skin perfectly. I'm also really, really impressed with the coverage. I didn't think it would give me much coverage at all but I'd definitely say this is a medium-high coverage foundation, that is buildable. It doesn't look cakey on my skin but the beautiful demi-matte finish it gives leaves my skin looking luminous yet matte - something I have always wanted in a foundation. It lasts really well on the skin, and whilst it does transfer a bit for the price you really can't complain. 

Whilst this foundation won't be replacing Double Wear as my all-time favourite, it is definitely right up there near the top. I absolutely love it and completely recommend it to anyone looking for a matte, medium-high coverage foundation under the £10 mark.

Have you tried Maybelline's Whipped Creme Foundation? What do you think to it?
