Colour: 50 NaturalVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I think I've found the perfect daily foundation for my skin. Of course this won't necessarily suit all skin types and as I get older my own skin texture and hydration levels will change but for the last few weeks I've not had to worry about my face matching the grey and dreary weather.

I am quite pale with sensitive, combination skin which is prone to acne rosacea so finding a suitable foundation can be an onerous task. Beauty therapists often try to persuade me to purchase expensive hydrating foundations to give me a "dewy" finish - I end up looking like an oil slick instead. The medium coverage I achieve with this foundation is demi-matte, not too shiny and not too drying either. It is the consistency of whipped cream (funnily enough) and a little goes a long way so this pot will last a long, long time. I like a light dusting of translucent powder on top if I'm using powder blusher but otherwise, for once in my life, I embrace the semi-matteness of it all - very daring after 34 years of being caked in powder!

It is not a very "buildable" foundation in that once you apply it you should quickly blend and not add any more for extra coverage. I like this aspect as it speeds up the whole getting ready process. Natural seems the ideal shade for my pale skin. Highly recommended.

Colour: 55 BeigeVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I have extremely pale skin and struggle to find the right shade to suit me. I'm afraid that this wasn't it - my face was a noticeably different colour to my neck! (Although testing foundation in the shop is really the only way to ensure this, I feel the manufacturers could have included more information on the Amazon product page to help customers pick the right shade. I'm not familiar with the Max Factor numbering system and wasn't sure whether 'Natural' or 'Beige' was intended to be lighter. Given my experience with this product, I think 'Natural' would have suited me better.) However, for those with less pale skin, I think this would be a good foundation. The 'whipped creme' formula delivers what it promises and it blends easily into the skin, leaving a light, matte and non-oily finish. The foundation doesn't seem to cake easily, even after you have worn it for a while, and subtly corrects redness in your skin tone, especially if worn under powder. If you make sure to find the right shade for you, I would recommend this product.

Colour: 55 BeigeVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
My wife has used Estee Lauder foundation for the last few years which she is very happy with. It costs four times as much and takes a while to apply with a brush to get it even. This is a brand she would not normally have tried but this Max Factor foundation goes on quickly without the need for a brush and gives a smooth matt finish every time. The colour is very neutral which suits my wife's skin and it lasts all day without the need for a touch-up.

When you are in a rush to get out the house, the easy way this goes on will save you real time.

Needless to say, my wife is having a re-think! This product feels good on her skin and costs substantially less than her previous brand. This product is a definite winner!

The only downside is that it doesn't have an SP rating for sun protection.

In summary then:
- doesn't need a brush to be applied
- goes on easy
- covers well
- lasts all day

As her husband, this seems like a winner to me!

Colour: 45 Warm AlmondVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I am a big fan of Max Factor foundation as I usually use Max Factor Colour Adapt Foundation - 70 Natural. This new Whipped Creme foundation is very similar in terms of coverage - neither too heavy nor too light - it just evens out skin tone and covers up minor blemishes. I particularly like how easy it is to apply as it is looks so creamy but is actually very light and easy to apply with your fingers. I was worried that this (45 Warm Almond) would not be the correct colour for me as it is different to the shade I usually have but it was perfect with the almond toning down the pinkness of my skin. Although this jar only contains 18ml of product compared with the 34ml pump bottle of my usual Colour Adapt foundation, there is no waste as you can control how much you get and it is also cheaper. I would definitely recommend this make up and will continue to purchase this instead of my usual foundation.

Colour: 75 GoldenVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This foundation crème is light and glides on without clogging or streaking, dries off quickly and gives a matte finish to the skin. It has good coverage but doesn't obscure your skin's natural "blush" because it seems to be semi-translucent and a little goes a long way. The colour is good for mid-toned complexions like mine and gives a "warm" appearance without being yellow which I appreciate in the winter months when my skin goes very pale. It is non-oily but doesn't dry out the skin especially if worn over a light moisturiser. It gives quite good coverage of skin blemishes and dark rings under the eyes, too, at least as good as any of the BB creams I have tried. So far I have tried two colours - 55 Beige and this one and I would say that 75 Golden is slightly pinker. Both, however, are great for skins like mine that aren't peaches and cream pink. I can certainly recommend this product.

Colour: 45 Warm AlmondVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This product comes in a very small pot less than an inch tall and contains only 18mls of foundation. My usual foundation from the Bodyshop contains 38mls. The small size is not necessarily a bad thing - it is small enough to carry around with you for retouching during the day, although the glass jar does make it quite heavy.

I applied the foundation using my fingers and it went on beautifully. I don't like to wear a lot of foundation and found that this product disappeared into my skin very well. For those who prefer to wear more, it will build up very nicely.

My 45 year old face does not feel dry or oily - it's perfect for me.

Colour choice is very difficult on line. I'm a pale skinned Caucasian with winter-pale skin, and went for the Warm Almond - and it's a perfect match.

I've added some photos to show the size and texture of the product.

Colour: 45 Warm AlmondVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Choosing a shade online is a risk, but I went by the word "Warm" in the shade, which I hoped meant it would have a slight yellow cast which it did. I used this for a few days .. it go us on very easily, is very economical as a little goes a long way. I like the little glass jar ... great for getting every last scrap out, and it's recyclable. The "Demi Matte" finish was good ... the foundation isn't heavy or too obvious. I passed it on to my 26 year old daughter to try and she loved it so much I cannot wrest it back! It looks great on her ... gives a bit of sheen, looks "finished" and hasn't caused any break outs. Would definitely buy again, this is a perfectly serviceable foundation at a really good price. Nothing life changing or earth shattering ... it does what it says on the box.

Colour: 75 GoldenVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I really like this whipped cream foundation. In the pot it looked like it might be too dark, but no...it's just perfect. It goes on easily and dries quickly leaving a smooth finish.

Sadly I'm no longer blessed with perfect skin but this creme covered my few minor thread veins really well without giving that 'caked on' look, admittedly there were a couple of more obvious flaws that required an extra dab of the foundation with a cosmetic brush but really pleased with the coverage given. I also found it lasted all day at work without me needing to reapply.

Natural looking, light enough that I didn't feel like I was wearing foundation and easy to apply.....I like it!

Colour: 45 Warm AlmondVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
As expected from the name, this is a beautifully light, pleasant to apply foundation that still gives great coverage. Warm Almond is a mid-toned, very natural looking shade that will suit most skin tones between fair and olive.

The creme formulation means that application with a sponge or fingertips is easy and non-messy, the suitability for sensitive skin and relatively reasonable price also make it a good choice for younger users.

Whilst whipped formulas do tend to sink in easily and sometimes need a little more product for coverage, the no-nonsense jar style packaging means that every scrap of product can be used, making it good value in this respect.

Colour: 75 GoldenVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
A lovely, light and moisturising foundation that is easy to apply whether using a fingertip or sponge. It provided good coverage and evened up skin tone without making you feel as though you were about to face the world caked in makeup and ready to entertain the masses.

A little bit goes a very long way and I found results were best when taking a pinhead-sized amount and applying it to the skin, thus avoiding overloading a small area.

Whilst it feels moisturising it is not at all shiny or greasy and it dries with the finish of powders but without the dryness I would associate with that type of foundation.
