I think Max Factor has some of the best foundation products in the drugstore department, albeit the brand is kinda' underrated, at least to me. It only took two Max Factor foundation variants for me to become a believer and that says a lot about the brand knowing how meticulous I am with face bases. (As a Beauty Blogger, I have to be!)
When the Facefinity line came out with the All Day Primer, that totally got me curious as I loved the foundation counterpart. After using the primer for about two weeks, I'm now a Facefinity zealot-this thing just extends the wear time of any face base I have on, whether it's BB or CC Cream, liquid, powder, or cream foundation!
MAX FACTOR FACEFINITY ALL DAY PRIMER IN DETAIL
Facefinity All Day Primer is apparently the secret to the foundation counterpart's long- lasting coverage, but glorified into a whole new product. It promises to extend the life of foundation with the Flexi-Hold technology, mattify skin and remove excess oil with Micro Correctors, and even includes SPF 20 to boot. It comes in a semi- translucent shade.
The product comes in a vintage- looking bottle with a sealable pump, which is a pretty cool feature: In case you lose or break the cap, you won't have to worry about spillage, thanks to the open-close option of the pump.
More about this great, great affordable primer after the cut!
The product has this creamy, silicone feel-I can feel the silicone ingredient in it, but it surprisingly feels like moisturizer-it is quite thick though and if you apply too much, it may end up feeling pasty on the skin-just apply small dots on each part of your face and spread well until it gets absorbed by the skin. It is fragrance- free as well.
MAX FACTOR FACEFINITY ALL DAY PRIMER IN ACTION
One layer of Facefinity All Day Primer
As you can see, it is pretty translucent: it goes well with any of my foundation and doesn't affect their color payoff as well, provided that I apply no more than two layers (after all, it still contains a pretty high amount of SPF). And even if consistency's quite thick, I didn't feel that it's suffocating my skin in any way, but I would recommend a patch test to those with sensitive and acne- prone skin. I also expected that this primer will give off a flat matte finish, but instead, it yielded a matte, dewy finish and I prefer this better.
TIP: You can use this product as an eye primer too. Just take a teeny weeny amount, spread it onto your lids evenly, and leave to set for at least 3 minutes before applying eye makeup. Just be sure that you don't have sensitive skin on the lid area!
Staying power is very good: It extends the wear time of sheer bases for at least 1 to 2 more hours and on long- wearing bases, wear time is extended for at least 2 to 3 more hours. I even used this primer with a cream foundation that makes my face really oily and the latter proved to be no match for this product.
I am very impressed with the feel and performance of this primer and I will surely recommend it to anyone who's looking for a pretty affordable and economical face primer that literally makes makeup stick. I wish it had other benefits such as skin tone correcting properties, pore minimizing effects, and instant brightening results, but its notable makeup- extending property is enough to make me buy it over and over again-I now understand why it was a backstage staple during the 2014 London Fashion Week!
