FOTD- Estee Lauder Maximum Coverage

Just wanted to share a FOTD with you after my first foray into the world of Estee Lauders Maximum Coverage make up. Now I cheated a little here, as I am too scared of how thick it is to wear it alone, so this is me wearing it for a night out with a small amount mixed with Garnier BB cream to water it down. I have  heard a few things about this Camouflage make up recently and I was really keen to try out a little sample pot I got at the counter. I am not totally decided on it yet, when I was applying it felt very thick and mask like at first, but when I saw the couple of quick snaps I took before I went out that night I think it photographs quite well and I actually don't mind the finish- it's obvious I am wearing foundation- but I am ok with that.

I am not quite ready to head out and spend £26.50 on a full bottle yet, I think I need to play around with it a little more. I am aware that my skin is no where near as bad as it could be and I probably don't need a heavy heavy coverage- but with my current pigmentation issues and scarring I do like to see that getting covered up for a night out- and this certainly does that! I also like that its SPF 15 and you really only need a tiny amount so it would last a long time. The shade range however is crap- be warned!

Only a short review for now as I want to brave the full face with just this first to give a good opinion but on first try I did like how it looked on and was impressed with how little you need and obviously the coverage it provides.

Has anyone else tried Maximum Coverage?


  1. I think it looks great on you! It doesn't look obvious at all. You look gorgeous :)

  2. Very pretty! I think it actually looks quite natural. Great FOTD, thanks x

  3. Love! I havent used EL makeup in years.

  4. What a gorgeous photo :) I think this foundation looks lovely on you x

  5. Photographs very well!

    I nearly bought the max coverage version last time I was buying EL foundation as I was having a particularly bad skin period but I was scared off by the thick texture. Will be interested to see how you get on with it when you try it alone. And would be interested to know if you've found any powders that work well with high coverage foundations as I've found a lot of them look too heavy or get cakey as the day goes on. Xx


Really appreciate you taking the time to comment, thanks for reading Bx
