MaxFactor Whipped Mousse Foundation

MaxFactor Whipped Mousse Foundation

I've been going on about the new MaxFactor Whipped Creme Foundation (Boots, £9.99) for weeks now and I mentioned it in brief in my September Top 5, but it is well and truly time for a proper review, because I am obsessed! First things first, the shade range. There's six shades in the range, but I've only ever found three in store (and I'm talking some pretty big Boots stores!) I opted for '75 Golden' because it matches well to my currently tanned skin, whilst also being light enough to be usable when my colour fades. This was my first time trying a whipped creme foundation, as they were always a formula I avoided before. I worried that they would appear cakey on my skin, patchy, and dry out my skin, but the MaxFactor Whipped Creme Foundation is quite the opposite. 

Formulated to leave a demi-matte finish, which for someone with oily skin is a godsend - this doesn't leave my skin looking shiny or oily as I do with a lot of dewy bases out there, but it's not so matte my skin looks dull. It has a nice, subtle glowing effect, I like it. Having a whipped formula means that unlike a mousse foundation for example, this will work to keep your skin hydrated as it's lighter in consistency and isn't too heavy on the skin. It's also oil-free (another bonus for oily or combination skin suffers!) as well as fragrance free, so it's suitable for even those with sensitive skin types. To apply I use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (Boots, £9.99), which is my favourite foundation brush for how versatile it is; it can be used with so many products! I lightly dip my brush into the product (and I mean lightly, else you'll pick up every last bit of product in the pot!), then apply to my face as I would a liquid foundation, gently buffing in as I go. I find this gives a light to medium coverage, but it can be built up fairly easily and it has a lovely texture which is easy to blend, leaving a flawless finish. My skin absolutely loves this foundation and it's a pretty much every-day product for me right now, finding it the perfect balance for my skin which is still adjusting to the autumnal weather. If you are low on foundation and want to venture into a new one, try this - because I am besotted! Really, really impressed.

  1. Now this is something I have seen but ignored simply because like you I thought it was going to dry out my skin and look cakey, after reading this though I think I need it. It sounds gorgeous!

  2. I'm still not sure about this. I'm thinking of trying mineral powder foundations as I have excessively oily skin. Have you tried any hun?

    1. I have tried a couple of mineral foundation but I don't find they work very well for me and don't give me the finish or coverage I like! xo

    2. Try Jane Iredale pure pressed mineral powder foundation. It is pricey but the coverage can be built up to full or light and it's natural and water resistant up to 45 mins as well as other great benefits.

  4. I am an NC42 right now and believe it or not I use the Bourjois Bronzing Primer as my foundation!! It's the perfect luminous light coverage that I need and the colour is a great match, I use very little product and voila I'm done.

    I wish Maxfactor would make its way to the US soon.

    1. I tried the Bourjois Bronzing Primer but I have to admit, I'm really not a fan :( I found it looked overly orange on me and felt horrible once on. I much prefer the Chanel Bronze Universal in terms of cream/mousse bronzers! I'm so surprised MaxFactor isn't in the US but I'm sure MaxFactor is the same as CoverGirl, just MaxFactor is more expensive! xo

  5. Ohhh, this sounds so promising! I've also avoided these types of foundations before for the same reasons as you. But you really made we wanna try this out now! I'm on the greatest foundation hunt these days as my skin is also still adjusting to the autumnal weather - or wait, it's not still adjusting, it has just gone crazy:( Nothing seem to work and I'm just looking for that perfect foundation that can help my face look nice! hehe:)
    Hmm, a bit worried this might not be available in Norway though - hopefully I'll go to London soon and I'll find it there :) Thanks for sharing :) xx Karla

    1. Unfortunately all of us have that period where our skin goes crazy as the seasons change. I find the transition from Summer - Autumn the worst for my skin, it becomes so dry so quickly! This is such a joy to use though :) I hope you'll be able to give this a go! xo

  8. Really liked the shorter succinct review :)

    I've been dubious to try this, the Maybelline whipped foundation ruined me! It highlighted all of my pores... just nervous this would do the same - the texture feels lovely when I tried it on the back of my hand though :)

    1. Ah I am so glad to hear it lovely as I am planning on doing a few quick-fire reviews every now and then, so great to hear the length of this one was OK! :) Stick a good primer on and this should be fine - it leaves a really smooth, flawless finish on my skin xo

  10. I saw this in store and both my mum and I really like it, after reading this I definitely want to try it, it sounds lovely. I've only ever tried one mouse and that was from Maybelline when I was at school!!

  11. Going to have to try this now, I avoided it too because I thought I'd end up with cakey make up but really want to try something new which isn't too pricey.
