First Impression - Maxfactor Face Finity 3 in 1 foundation

I decided it was time for me to try a new foundation. The one I picked up is the Maxfactor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 foundation. 
I've been wanting to try this one out for a while now, but I couldn't find it in the drugstore. 
Today I finally came across it and took it home with me.. 

The foundation claims to be a 3 in 1. So that means primer, concealer and foundation in one product. 
Because of this, I didn't apply any primer which I normally would, considering my extremely oily skin. So I really do hope this foundation works the way it claims it does, because otherwise I will be bare-faced within the next two hours. 

The picture below shows me without any product on my face to start with and then after applying just the foundation. 

I was a bit afraid after putting the foundation on the back of my hand, because the consistency of it seemed to be pretty thick. But then I put it on my face and it just looks so perfect. It leaves a thin layer of foundation on your skin that looks really natural. I found that it did a pretty good job at concealing all of my redness and my blemishes although I did go back in with my concealer to cover up my under-eye area and a little red spot that didn't get completely covered up. 
I also like the fact that it's a matte finish, but it still leaves me with a dewy glow. I normally stay away from foundations with a dewy finish, but this one doesn't bother me at all. 
It also feels really light on my skin as if I'm not wearing any foundation at all *Bonus points*
To set the foundation in place I used the Covergirl Professional Loose Powder in 105 Translucent fair so it didn't add any extra cover. This is the first time I've used a loose powder and I think I'm gonna love it. It's really light on my skin and doesn't make my skin look cakey or powdery. It does have a strong soapy scent to it that I don't like. Below is a picture of me with the loose powder applied on top of the foundation. 

The foundation comes at €14,99 for a 30ml bottle which is a descent price for the quality of this foundation. It also comes with an spf of 20.

I don't know about the staying power of this foundation yet, so I'll update you guys later on that..
