So the main idea behind this foundation is not having to compromise between radiance and long wear coverage.

  • Porcelain (30)
  • Crystal Beige (33)
  • Pearl Beige (35)
  • Light Ivory (40)

So you can see what it looks like on the skin, I have done some before and after photos:

It is really easy to apply and blend and you can adjust the coverage to suit your preferences. A light layer gives a really natural, perfected look, yet it is buildable and you can almost use it like a concealer to really increase the coverage where you need it.

What I like about it is that it sets itself, so I don’t find the need for powder and everything feels very light. I tested it for a whole day and it lasted on the skin really well without any touching up, so it certainly delivers on the longwear front.

The finish is like a luminous matte – there’s no shine as such, but it isn’t flat at all. Lovely!

Max Factor Radiant Lift Foundation is £14.99 available HERE.

  1. Hi Ree,

    Would you describe the coverage as medium or full ? Looking forward to try this foundation!
    Have a nice weekend and a big hug from Holland!


    1. I think it’s full coverage but it doesn’t have to be if you use very light layers. Super buidable – I really like the coverage xx

  2. That’s beautiful on you. I wish Max Factor was available in Canada. I can get off of Feel Unique site tho.

  3. I must have done something wrong. Max Factor Radiance Lift is the worst Max Factor foundation I have ever used. I thought with the word “Radiance” I the title it would live up to the word – no definitely not it looked “caked” on and no I didn’t pile it on I just used two pumps and used a brush to put it on. Needless to say I am very disappointed with it and it has gone straight into the bin. That’s £14.99 I will never get back.

  4. Can u please tell me have u tried max factor face finity and if u did are the shades similar cause i use face finity nude 47 but im so messed up with radiant lift shades….any help is more then welcome

    1. I am not really sure because when I used Facefinity, I used to tan my face so I was 55. I am so much paler now so 47 works. So sorry if this isn’t helpful! xxx
