See I have a good new, since implementing the makeup ban 3 months ago, I have bought exactly one makeup item. Downside? As you probably notice.... no new blog posts lol.
I got this sample of the Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation (Php 895/full size) from when I bought something online months ago. I admit, aside from their False Lash Effect Mascara and their lovely Glossfinity nailpolish, I'm not very familiar with Max Factor at all. In fact, Max Factor isn't a brand that's super popular in the country. When you say drugstore makeup brand, most people would think of Revlon or Maybelline.
I have nothing but praise for the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation, but my only problem with it is that the shade that I have with me - Warm Golden - does not suit me at all. It's a bit too light & a lot more pink than what I need.
As you can see in the swatches above, Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation in Golden is definitely, well, Golden. It's a medium shade with a warm undertone. For those familiar with how MAC foundation shades work, I'm sure the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation in Warm Golden is a great fit for the shade NW30, while the Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation in Golden is perfectly suited for those who are NC30.
Pardon the photos above, I just woke up few minutes prior to taking those! I swear I don't look that horrible hahahaha Anyway, in terms of the formula, this works exactly like the Revlon one. Glides on well on the skin, buffs nicely, covers everything, and dries down to a nice powdery finish. The only difference that I can see between the two is the lasting power.. The Revlon is far more superior than the Max Factor one.
I wore the Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation a week ago, and it only lasted for 2 and a half hours on me before I noticed that my forehead and my nose were getting oily. Granted, it was pretty hot that day, but still I never had any problems with the Revlon one.. Both are so similar to each other that in fact, if you put the two in front of me, I wouldn't know which is which.
They're priced similarly, too! So, if you have a shade match for the Revlon one (ie if you have a pink undertone), I suggest you go for that one. But if you don't oil up too much, and prefer something with a warmer undertone, then go for the Max Factor Whipped Creme foundation.
Wht are you favorite Max Factor products? :)
