Max Factor Facefinity Foundation in Warm Almond


I do not do foundation reviews, blusher reviews, eyeshadow reviews - mainly because I'm really bad at them and I can never take photographs of my face that show the product doing what it's supposed to do. I'm only doing this because I couldn't find swatches of it on pale skin anywhere. I wanted to review it but I hate when people do reviews but don't show swatches, so I said I'd show you how it looks on someone quite pale and freckly.

I picked the shade "Warm Almond" because everything else on the stand had the word "beige" in it and I'm afraid of beige. I'm usually the lightest shade or second lightest in most brands, so to not have an "ivory" or "nude" put the fear of god into me and I had to rely on chemist lighting. Apparently there's a "light ivory" shade but I couldn't find it!

It claims to be a 3-in-1 product - primer, concealer and foundation. It also has SPF 20, which is always a good thing. As you can see I've used it a few times already, despite picking the wrong shade.

If you're unsure as to what foundation shades to buy in other brands, then you need to get over to You can pick a few shades of foundation you know suit you, and it'll throw out loads of potential matches for you from other brands.

There are six shades available:

I thought the best way to show the coverage was to make a half-and-half Frankenstein from a before and after pic.

They didn't line up exactly, but it gave me a laugh! Here's a closer look.

I really like it, even thought it might be a smidgen too dark for me. It gives really good coverage and isn't at all cakey. I paid €14.99 for mine in a local chemist.

I don't think I'll be doing another foundation review, I don't know how others do them on a weekly basis!


  1. Looks great and have to say your skin is excellent beforehand too!

  2. This seems like a great one to try out. I seems to blend well with the skin. I will check on this.

  3. I love this foundation! It is one of my favourites!
