Beauty Review: Max Factor CC Cream

Max Factor CC Cream in Fair 40 Review

Max Factor CC Cream in Fair 40 Review

Ever since I got my first BB cream I've been very curious as to the colour correction creams aka CC creams. And as my Benefit Big Easy BB Cream is slightly too dark for my autumn skin (lets face, all year pale-face) it was time for a change!

I chose the lightest colour 40 Fair, which is okay but not an exact match due to the range of shades reduced to only three?! It's a creamy consistency which can look slightly cakey if you don't blend it in properly, but overall it's a quite good foundation with a medium coverage.

The natural coverage does colour correct, in my opinion. I have slightly red cheeks and chin, but once I've applied this my skin is all fairly one shade. I love the added SPF, even if it's only 10 it's still good to have a small amount of protection and it covers most skin imperfections, with just a dab of concealer needed for blemishes and under the eyes.

The only downside is that I've found it slightly greasy around my t-zone, especially down my nose. I wouldn't say my skin was particularly oily, it's more combination with few dry patches across my cheeks. But I've found that I tend to powder my t-zone, which I don't do often, throughout the day to stop my skin looking too shiny. 

Overall it's a nice product to use, I do like the colour correcting elements and it does last all day, but I'd say this isn't one for oily skin and if you do, then powder away!!

What do you guys think of the Max Factor CC Cream? What's your favourite CC Cream?

Thanks for reading!
