Review: Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation

Miracle Match Foundation is Max Factor's latest foundation that claims to blur imperfection whilst nourishing the skin, creating a natural, dewy complexion. 

I found Max Factor's claims to be mostly true. It certainly did "blur" imperfections, making it a medium coverage foundation. However, concealer was required to fully cover pigmentation/blemishes.

 The consistency of the Miracle Match foundation was neither runny nor thick - consistency is what you would expect of a regular medium coverage foundation. I found it really easy to apply and blend with my fingers, which is fantastic because the shade I got was not what I would have picked myself (Rose Beige 65) - it has pink undertones, whilst my skin suits yellow undertone foundations. Despite this mishap, the foundation blended effortlessly into my skin, evening out my skintone, and making it look almost flawless. 

The scent of this foundation is a weird one. It's hard to describe, and I'm frankly not a big fan of it. Thankfully, the scent does not linger and is quite subtle, especially after setting it with a powder. 

Being an oily skin gal, this foundation doesn't have much going in terms of oil control. I think this would be perfect for those with normal (and maybe even dry) skin, as it contains skin conditioning agents for hydration. 

I was quite surprised at how long wearing this foundation is. It lasted 10 hours on my face with little to no "wear". My face looked as good as I applied the foundation 10 hours earlier, with a bit of an oily sheen (nothing an oil blotter or two can't fix). 

Whilst the packaging is not the most unique, it is a practical one. Both the cap and bottle are made of plastic, making it light (compared to glass bottles) and would be ideal for travelling. Also, clumsy people, such as myself, do not have to worry about dropping it, as it won't break. It also has a pump that dispenses an adequate amount for one application. What more can you ask for in a foundation? 

Overall, the Miracle Touch Foundation by Max Factor is a great long wearing, medium coverage foundation for those with normal skin. It also works well on oily skin if you don't mind having to blot multiple times a day.
