The ideal face powder exists! I’ve been searching for it for so long!
I kept buying face powders one by one, and each of them was a failure, which made me look as though I was wearing war paint.
I almost gave up, but then I saw one of my friends using MAX Factor Facefinity Powder, and I really liked the effect!
There are 7 colors in this line: Porcelain, Ivory, Natural, Sand, Golden, Bronze and Toffee.
I own the compact powder in the shade number 1 - Porcelain (which has also a SPF 15).
Country of origin: Ireland.
Weight: 240 g.
The case just won me over! It is stylish, flat, rectangular and cute.
Made of durable plastic in golden colors. Pleasant to the touch.
On the top of the case there is a golden inscription with the name of the manufacturer.
I really liked this design, not knowing what the powder is, I would have hardly guessed.
It hasn’t changed after all this time: there are no scratches and abrasions on the case. Looks brand new!
In the photo it may seem that the case is huge, but it's only in the photo. In fact, it fits easily even in the smallest handbag.
Photo on my palm:
The case can be opened by pressing the special button, which works perfectly, does not jam and doesn’t let the case open itself.
Opening and closing occurs with a slight click.
Product details and ingredients:
Max Factor Facefinity Compact Foundation is a pressed powder which combines the comfort of use with the properties of a liquid foundation, giving you the desired smooth coverage and a satin finish.
The Perma-Wear technology provides all-day fade resistant colour and flawless coverage that lasts up to 8 hours. This compact contains SPF 15 which helps to protect your skin from the sun rays.
Make-Up Artist Tips
To choose your ideal shade match the foundation with the skin tone of your jawline. To ensure even coverage use a compact sponge and apply the foundation to the centre of your face blending outwards. Go over with a foundation brush for a faultless finish. Always apply the foundation in natural light. Fragrance and oil free, Max Factor Compact is a convenient solution.
The kit includes:
the mirror (good size, convenient to use, plus it does not distort your image);
the powder (covered with a protective film);
The sponge is okay, I use it pretty often, along with brushes - it’s a matter of taste.
I have washed the sponge more than once, but it remained unchanged and undamaged.
The powder is densely compressed, velvety to the touch, has a very fine grinding and is almost invisible on the face.
Contains no shimmer.
A photo on my hand, so that you can see how well the powder is spread, without setting in the wrinkles:
It has a light barely perceptible scent, which doesn’t last on my skin. The powder is almost unscented, actually, unless you bury your nose directly in it.
To begin with, I will tell you a little about my skin.
My skin is combination, oily in the T-zone, and dry on the cheeks, I have a few acne scars and tend to break out.
The powder is applied easily with both a sponge and a brush.
If you use a brush, then it's best to choose a tacklon one, of medium size and with medium stiffness. With a natural brush, this powder will be incredibly "dusty".
✔ No need to push the brush into the powder, everything should be done with light and smooth motions.
The powder can be used both as a makeup base or a setting powder.
I even stopped using foundations, because I didn’t need them anymore. The Max Factor Facefinity Compact powder easily copes with many tasks.
✔ The powder applies naturally and adapts to the skin tone.
✔ It doesn’t make my face look cakey
✔ Unlike many other powders, it doesn’t create a yellowish look on my skin.
✔ For a better coverage, it can be used together with a foundation.
Lasting powerIt depends on how many layers of powder you apply. I try to apply it in a thin layer, once my makeup is ready.
After two months of use, the powder still looks like new, it’s pretty economical.
The lasting power is great, those with oily and combination skin will have to touch up 1-2 times a day. The powder doesn’t wear off or smudge.
My opinion and result
The Max Factor Facefinity Compact powder is the best product I've ever tried.
✔ No powder can completely cover global problems like pimples, blemishes, scratches etc.
What I need from a face powder:
- It must look natural (without yellowness);
- suitable for combination skin;
- easily applied;
- must not clog pores;
- mattify the skin tone and make it even;
- contain SPF;
- doesn’t emphasize peeling \ flaking ...
The Max Factor Facefinity Compact powder meets all the above mentioned requirements.
The powder matches my skin perfectly, there is no difference between face and neck.
The powder is lightweight, almost invisible on the skin, does not fall out throughout the day and does not clog my pores or darken on the face.
Perfectly covers the bruises and the dark circles under the eyes. Of course, it’s better to get some sleep, but that’s not always possible ...
I have pimples, but I do not try to cover them, since they will be seen in any case, why bother. Let them look natural, not cakey, at least.
Excellent powder, definitely worth your attention!
