Maxfactor Skin Luminizer foundation review

Maxfactor is usually one of those brands that I breeze past in Boots, maybe as it's slightly higher on the price scale, maybe it's simply because I've never really tried many products, but I have to say after this foundation, I am converted. 

The skin luminizer is not really a new foundation it's been around for a while and is somewhat of a standout on the highstreet, due to its swirls of colour and moisturiser. These pretty swirls are not purely visual either, the hydrator within the products helps to give your skin a great moisturised dewy finish, avoiding the oil slick look. I would however, say I still need to use a moisturiser underneath my make up, but that may just be habit on my part, however, I wouldn't recommended avoiding that step unless you normally do. 

I found it relatively easy to find my shade, but that's cause I'm either the lightest or second lightest in any foundation. However, I would definitely recommend swatching beforehand as the colours are a little warm. 

As you can see here, the product is a nice thick consistency and glides into the skin beautifully. I use my real techniques buffer brush for mine but I would say it would work just as well with a sponge or your fingers. 

All in all, I really enjoyed the product and it has definitely converted me to Maxfactor. Any recommendations let me know, as I will be adding a few items to my Christmas list this year.


  1. Is it bad that I really want to try this just because of the pretty swirls :) I do really like my max factor face finity foundation though
