MAC Strobe Cream vs Max Factor Face Finity Primer.

MAC Strobe Cream
MAC Strobe Cream is a really top notch highlighter/primer and always leaves skin looking dewy and fresh.  I’m quite forgetful, or in a rush, so often forget to use a primer. I love the way Strobe Cream blends in and leaves you with the most beautiful sheen to the skin. Today I have good news, I believe I have found a total dupe at a fraction of the cost.

Max Factor Face Finity Primer
Max Factor have just released their Face Finity All Day Primer, which I tried for the first time this morning and I really like it. Not just like, but REALLY like it.
It’s just brilliant.  In the same way Strobe Cream hydrates and freshens the complexion, this too boosts dull skin, to appear glowing and beautifully highlighted. Both contain iridescent particles so the skin appears luminous. Marketed as a primer this to me is just a slightly more watery strobe cream, it does prolong the wear of foundation as it claims, it also has SPF20 and  just gives the nicest finish and light to the skin.
MAC Strobe Cream vs Max Factor Face Finity Primer
MAC’s wonder cream is £23.50 for 50ml or £12.50 for 30ml from MAC
Max Factor’s primer is £10.99 for 30ml from Boots
I believe both of these are fantastic products and apart from the consistency of the cream, there is no real difference. Max Factor is a really good budget buy.
