Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation First Impression

I found this foundation on offer at Tesco for £7.99. I do tend to find Max Factor Foundations a really good colour match for my skin and they tend to sit quite nicely on my oily skin too so I thought I'd give it a go. 

I picked up the shade Light Ivory. The product is in a sturdy glass jar and contains 18ml of product. You only need a small amount as a little goes quite a long way so I can see this lasting me a while.

The texture is quite thick, not to dissimilar from whipped cream funnily enough and it doesn't really have any scent to it whatsoever.

If your looking for a full coverage foundation then I don't think this will be for you, I would say its definitely more on the medium side, if you have any acne, acne scarring or redness you will need  some concealer, I have a few small blemishes at the moment and I could still see them after 2 thin layers of foundation.

 Here is the foundation after being blended out on my skin. I used the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. It blended nicely worked well for my oily skin. It also didn't accentuate my humongous pores which is a major bonus for me!

I didn't need to powder and it lasted around 5-6 hours before starting to wear off. 

Overall I'm quite happy with the foundation, its by no means the best I have ever tried but its certainly not the worst. I can see me using this on good skin days when I don't need too much coverage and I don't want to powder throughout the day which is something I hate having to do. 

Thanks for reading, have you tried this foundation yet?


  1. I'm a bit sceptical of mousse/whipped cream type foundations because I have dry skin. But I was really drawn in by the whole 'hydration' promise. How do you think it would hold up on dry/normal skin?

  2. the name whipped cream irritates me totally :D I was about to try it out but for some reason I can't sympathize with the packaging...I don't like the fact that I have to take out the product with my bare hands...

    How about following each others??
