The hunt has begun for the mid-season foundation. Gone are the lighter and dewy formulas that are enough on warm summer days, and in come the heavier more matte finishes that help us look healthy without caking up the skin. I’ve never been particularly fond of cream or mousse foundations, preferring a liquid that I know I can manipulate and layer on the skin; however, MaxFactor’s new Whipped Creme foundation provides all the coverage I need without feeling heavy. The whipped non-drying formula is oil and fragrance free, as well as being suitable for sensitive or dry skin – the light-as-air texture doesn’t clog pores either, making it perfect for daily wear. It feels extremely light to the touch and works well when applied with either fingers or a foundation brush, moving around the skin easily to leave a refreshed and clear complexion. Unlike a lot of other mousse foundations, MaxFactor’s Whipped Creme foundation doesn’t cake or flake throughout the day, nor does it struggle to blend with blush or powder when applied over the top. The formula provides an almost airbrushed finish while feeling practically invisible; although the coverage isn’t heavy and some will need to layer and add a touch of concealer, it’s become a staple for when I want a simple makeup look. Perfect for Autumn and not bad at all for under a tenner.
The MaxFactor Whipped Creme Foundation is available from Boots stores and online priced £9.99
