MAXFACTOR Whipped Cream Foundation Review

I first swatched this Maxfactor Whipped Cream Foundation at the Merry Hill Autumn/Winter Event. It was based on the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation but better. 


The Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse was one of the first foundations I can remember using at school. I'm pretty sure that it probably made me orange and broke me out but I carried on using it anyway. Maxfactor wanted to create a mousse foundation but overcome the downfalls of Maybelline. 
Maxfactor have made their mousse hydrating which was a problem with Maybelline as it was drying and cakey. 


On first impressions the texture was really nice and I originally swatched the ivory shade. Straight after the event, me and Clare went to Superdrug and Clare picked it up straight away and managed to get it on offer at £7.99 rather than it's retail price of £9.99.

I went home and tried a few sachet samples that I had of it over the next couple of days. Then, I was sold and ended up going to Boot's to buy it. The sachets that I tried were in the shade 50 natural so I decided to try that one. 

It has a demi-matte finish and is actually really buildable which is good, especially if you prefer a high coverage foundation. I've been applying it with my fingers and it does feel weightless on the skin.

Have you tried this foundation?

  1. I tried this at the Merry Hill event too and loved it, much better than the Maybelline one, which like you said, dries the skin out. I'm going to purchase the full size one when my current foundation runs out :) x

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon!

I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.
