For quite some time now I have been wanting to try out the Maxfactor Facefinity Foundation. After wanting it for like a year, I finally decided to buy it. But when I went to the store I found out they didn’t carry any light shades in that range, so I ended up buying the Maxfactor Miracle Match foundation. After putting it through the test, it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out more about the Maxfactor Miracle Match Foundation, make sure you keep on reading!
The Maxfactor Miracle Match Foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pump. The pump is black and has, just like the glass part, gold details. Overall I really like the packaging. I like the fact that it has a pump, because that’s just so easy to work with and in my opinion one of the most hygienic ways. Aside from that I’m also a fan of the fact that this bottle is made of glass, since that makes it feel a bit more luxurious than plastic would.
The Miracle Match Foundation basically claims to be a foundation that matches everybody. There are about 5 shades available and the lightest shade (I could find) is the one I have, called 45 Warm Almond. When I bought it I wasn’t really sure if this was going to be light enough, but because I just really wanted to try it I bought it anyway.
Turns out this foundation isn’t a Miracle Match for me, just like I thought. I’m not a Warm Almond, nor will I ever be a Warm Almond and I know for a fact that lot’s of people in this world aren’t dark enough to be a Warm Almond either. I’m more like a Paper White kinda colour.
The thing I’m trying to say is that I just don’t get why Maxfactor creates a foundation claiming to be a Miracle Match for everybody, but doesn’t create an actual light shade. I have to say that if I blend this very, very, very well, I can get away with it, but it’s tricky and since this is supposed to be a Miracle Match foundation, I don’t think it’s acceptable.
Enough about the shade, onto the foundation itself. When it comes to the product itself I’m actually very positive. The Maxfactor Miracle Match foundation has a really nice texture and blends in really nicely. It has medium to high coverage and makes my skin look absolutely flawless. I really like the way it looks.
The best thing about it is probably the finish. Because it says Blur & Nourish on the bottle, I expected it to be kind of oily, which is not something I want considering the fact I have very oily skin. But in fact it’s nothing like that. It does have a slightly dewy finish, but not full on dewy, and it doesn’t make my greasier than it would be without this foundation.
The part where it claims to blur your imperfections is really true. Lately I’ve been struggling a lot with break outs and redness all over my skin and this foundation does a great job at covering them. It really makes my skin look flawless and even which I really, really enjoy.
The lasting power is amazing too. In combination with the Nivea Aftershave Balm and the Urban Decay Deslick Setting Spray this foundation ain’t going nowhere. It really doesn’t. No matter how much you sweat, no matter how warm it is or what you do, this foundation won’t budge. I love that!
Overall I’m quite impressed by this Maxfactor Miracle Match Foundation. I absolutely love the way it looks and feels on my skin. It’s very easy to work with and it makes my skin look flawless. The only little downside to this foundation is the fact that the lightest colour isn’t actually light. Aside from that I think it’s one of the best foundations I have ever tried. I highly recommend giving it a try!
The Maxfactor Miracle Match Foundation is available at the drugstore for €16,99.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know which foundation you’re currently loving!
