Max Factor Creme Puff Review

Hi Dolls,

I am reviewing my mother’s compact, which at times even I use when I am just running out of the door and quickly grab any product near me to powder my face and eat anything I can lay my hands on 😛 On such days, I do want my base makeup to look good, but don’t bother for concealers and liquid foundations, etc!!! One day, when I was running out of time (which tends to happen most of the times), I grabbed this powder and quickly powdered my whole face with it 😛

Max Factor Creme Puff Review

Product Being Reviewed:

Max Factor Creme Puff in the shade “Deep Beige.”

Deep Beige

Product Description:

Glamorous skin is simple to achieve with the luxurious finish of this high coverage powder make-up compact. It’s perfect for all skin types and gives a flawless matte finish with a soft, subtle glow thanks to millions of miracle light reflecting particles. Choose your look by using it alone over moisturiser for a fresher base, on top of your foundation for a red carpet result or even as an all in one make-up for a groomed, glamorous glow.  Available in 9 shades.

Price:

INR 500-600 for 21 gm ( good quantity).

My Experience with Max Factor Creme Puff:

The packaging is very basic compact packaging, comes with a sponge applicator which I never use.  Somehow, I find these sponges futile because I just can’t work the product into my skin with them or probably I am addicted to my brushes, don’t really know what the reason is?? I adore my “Studio Fix” and nothing has impressed me in terms of coverage, but after a long time, I have come across a compact which gives good medium to full coverage quickly without wasting time on layering the product.

Compact

The staying power is also very good, almost 4 hours, which is very good for a compact. It gives a matte finish with a lovely glow which I love and also it doesn’t melt off my face. It didn’t make my face look cakey or loaded with powder!!! The smell of the compact is a bit overpowering, very chemical, but vanishes after 30 minutes.  It will prove to be a time-saving product for many!!!

Compact Powder

Pros of Max Factor Creme Puff:

  • Many shades to choose from.
  • Good staying power.
  • Good coverage.
  • Reasonably priced.
  • Good quantity.
  • Nice matte effect.
  • I think that’s all one needs in a good day-to-day compact.

Beige Foundation Compact

Cons of Max Factor Creme Puff:

  • Chemical, synthetic smell.
  • Futile sponge applicator.

IMBB Rating:

4.5/5

Will I Repurchase Max Factor Creme Puff?

I have already ordered the product in my shade and will recommend all oily to combination skinned beauties to surely give this a try!!

Shade reference: This shade will easily suit NC 35-40 in MAC.

There is one more con in this. It doesnt have a mirror. But overall, its a very good product. I use it in ‘Sun Frolic’ shade.

Max Factor bases are often well worth their prices , but the only problem they pose for many warmer complexioned people is the shade selections which tend to be more pink toned than with yellow undertones .Otherwise the formulations are great. I love the Lasting performance one even now.
