Review: Max Factor FaceFinity All Day Primer

Hey guys :)
Today I am going to talk about a rather new product that I have added to my collection and it is: Max Factor FaceFinity All Day Primer (£10.99/30ml). 

I don't know if it is just me but this product looks different in comparison to other primers I have seen in the market - maybe it's the packaging? The primer is encased in a glass shell, which adds that bit of luxury we all like to feel in the morning, and has a pump - which is both useful and hygienic. The bad thing about the packaging is the size and weight - if you like to travel then I don't know how much space you would want to reserve for your primer and this product is slightly bigger than my foundation. I like how Max Factor have added 30ml of product to this primer - that's the standard amount you would receive in your foundation and so this product is sure to last as long as your desired foundation.

You can tell what sort of product this is going to be simply by the texture, it's more of a liquid consistency which means that it isn't going to reduce the look of pores (usually the texture of those primers are more thick and silicone based).  This product is solely for extending the wear of your foundation. This is something that I like because lets be honest, sometimes the 'do all' primers don't end up performing well in one single category. I really like this - it does actually work,  my make-up looks fresher for longer. I like that this isn't thick to apply on, with primers like this one you have to apply it on to your entire face and sometimes your face can feel loaded on before the foundation gets on, but with this product that's not the case at all. Anyone who is looking to extend the wear of their foundation and wants a light primer would be super pleased with this. I swear it's like glue for the face without being tacky or sticky, but you can notice before and after that your foundation really does mesh well with this primer.
In terms of price I think it is a fair amount to ask for - first I was shocked that the primer was above standard drugstore price but when you think of the amount you get then you get over that fact. I think they have done a great job with this primer and I would urge you guys to try it :)
I hope you have enjoyed this review - it's more chatty than my usual style of reviews so let me know what you think :) Also have any of you tried this primer? If so, what did you think of it? And if not - what is your favourite primer? :)
Thanks for reading,

    1. It's really different - totally worth a try I think :)

  2. I've always been looking for a primer that makes my foundation stay on longer! The pore problem isn't my biggest issue and I always find that so many primer's fail when it comes to increasing staying power. This looks like a really interesting product! I always forget about Max Factor, I should give this a look when I'm next in Boots!
    (I like your new, chatty style by the way!) :)

    1. Oooh this may be right up your street then! Hopefully Boots has a tester you can try :) There was another promising primer from Bourjois that seemed really nice so be sure to test that one too :) aw thanks Becki!
