Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation

Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation
When it comes to foundation, once I've found one that ticks all boxes I rarely stray away from it.  As someone with very pale skin I often find my choice is limited which means I rarely take the opportunity to try out some new foundations.  I haven't had much luck with drugstore foundations but this time I've discovered a game changer which is the Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation* which will be coming out later in the month.  This is one to get excited about.

Lets start off with the facts.  The Skin Luminizer Foundation comes in 6 shades at £12.99 each.  The shade I currently have is 50 Natural which is number 3 in the list.  I can see it's too dark for me so I'd be better off picking up Light Ivory but I can make the Natural shade work by mixing some white foundation in.  However for the purposes of the review, I'll review the foundation on it's own.

As someone with oily skin, usually the last thing you look for in foundation is a luminizing glow effect but in this case, it's more about being lit from within.  Compared to my usual foundation (Nars Sheer Glow) I can instantly see a difference in how it feels on the skin.  This is probably the most lightweight foundation I've ever tried yet it still gives just enough coverage to conceal small blemishes, redness and make a dent in my dark circles.

It's the perfect "no makeup" foundation.  However I do think to have the full benefits your skin has to be in a fairly good condition.  I don't think it's strong enough to conceal larger blemishes so you will need a good concealer to go along with it.  In terms of the coverage, I'd argue that it's light-medium more than medium.

If you're someone who always needs a little bit of makeup on before you go out but don't necessarily want a full face on, this would be a much better alternative.  I also found it blends really easily into the skin so it took hardly any time to apply.  Great for popping to the shops, holidays, gym etc.

For those with oily skin, the foundation does dry in a sort of semi-matte way but I did find I needed a little powder so that is something to consider.  Good news for those who don't usually wear powder though!

I don't know the exact date when this will be out but it will be this month so I'd definitely urge you all to give it a try when it does, I promise you'll love it!
