Brilliant as an under eye brightener/concealer,
This review is from: Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation - 50 Natural (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm very light skinned, and usually take a foundation that's pretty much white, but this 'natural' shade worked fine. I also have horribly sensitive skin, and this foundation caused no problems at all.
The creme is actually very heavy, it reminded me of the cheap greasepaint stage make-up I was painted with for school plays. Initially it gave a flawless but very painted on finish, but after 20 minutes or so had settled into nice, natural skin coverage. Max Factor recommend you use powder after applying this foundation, but I didn't - the idea of heavy foundation and setting powder was just too 1970s for me. Without powder I was left with a nice, dewy skin tone, but more suited to evening make-up than day time.
This is a very small pot of foundation, but a little goes a long way. Max Factor say you should apply it with a foundation brush. I initially tried it using my fingers, but I used waaaay too much. Careful brush application is much better. The foundation clings to any dry patches of skin, so you need to carefully moisturise before use, and it's very unforgiving on any lines around the mouth or upper lip stubble.
Removal was a bit of a pain, it needed copious amounts of wiping off with make-up remover for waterproof/oil based cosmetics, and still needed an exfoliate to get the last of the greasy feeling off.
It's nice coverage for heavier evening make-up, but I'll be sticking to my Benefit liquid to powder compact for day time as it's much quicker and easier to apply.
Playing around with the Whipped Creme I did discover that it makes an EXCELLENT undereye concealer and brightener, so it'll stay in the day-to-day make-up bag as a concealer rather than foundation.
