A Cheaper Alternative To Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know I swear by my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, for a full review CLICK HERE.

But recently I have moved house and got myself a dog, Darcy (who I will post a pic of at the bottom of these posts as everyone has been asking about her), so I have been trying to save a bit of cash where I can, so when I recently ran out of my much loved Estee Lauder Double Wear, which costs £26.50 per bottle, I started to search for a cheaper alternative.

And I came across this.....

Maxfactor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 foundation in shade Warm Almond RRP £12.99

Now Warm Almond sounds like it would be too dark for me as I usually still to the porcelain shades but it was the 2nd lightest shade and when I tested it on my hand it was a perfect match. When I use Double Wear I use the second lightest shade called Ecru. 

Before even putting it on my face it has one up on Double Wear as this foundation comes with a pump, which Double Wear doesn't. You can buy a pump from Estee Lauder but as the foundation already costs £26.50 I think it should at least come with a pump!

I have done a before and after picture of my cheek, as my skin has been quite blotchy recently, so you can see the coverage.



This Maxfactor foundation gives a medium coverage but can be built to a full coverage when you apply more, but using too much can give you a cakey effect. The matte finish matches my skin perfectly and it lasts all day without going oily or patchy. 

I have to say the Maxfactor doesn't feel as heavy on the skin as Estee Lauder's Double Wear which is a huge bonus, I hate the heavy feeling of foundation, this is the main difference in the foundations, oh and the price!

What do you think? Have you tried this Maxfactor foundation?


Here's a picture of my cheeky little girl Darcy, my lovely friend Nardine sent Darcy a goody box full of wonderful things.....

We left Darcy for not even 10 minutes with her new toys and this is what we found.....

Very cute, yes, very mischievousness, YES!
