Im a big lover of primer. I never used to wear it until about a year ago and now I cant live without it. Especially having oily skin, I find a primer helps so much. Today's review is of Maxfactor’s Face Finity All Day Primer.
I don’t actually own many Maxfactor products. I mainly own their foundations as I find they are usually great coverage, so I thought why not give the Maxfactor Face Finity All Day Primer a go. It states to last all day and extend the wear of your foundation. It retails at £10.99 which is a little pricey for a drugstore primer but you actually get a lot in the bottle so I can see this lasting quite sometime.
The packaging is lovely. It comes in a glass bottle and with a pump so it does feel more highend rather than drugstore. When you first apply this onto the skin it has a PVA glue like consistency (which I know sounds horrible). It does feel quite thick but once you rub it into your skin it feels lovely. It spreads well, you don’t need a lot & it sinks into the skin fairly quickly. When applying primers I leave them to sink in for about 5 minutes before applying my foundation.
So the question is does it work? Iv found it has really helped my foundation last longer and reduced my oily skin. On first application I thought it might make my skin worse but it really hasn’t. I have started to get some small breakouts at the moment which im not 100% if it is the primer or just because im a little stressed out at the moment. Overall I will definitely buy this product again. I really want to try the MaxFactor Face Finity All Day Flawless Foundation, have you tried it?
