I'm don't usually write reviews, but I just had to for this foundation!
I'm one of these that has spent hundreds on trying different foundations from cheaper brands like revlon,bonjour ect.. to expensive like bobbi brown, Clinique, MAC, Estée Lauder. Oh so much money i'v wasted on the hope that this foundation will be the one, but I'm always let down!I have oily skin which is acne prone, so I look for a full coverage, non oily foundation, at the moment I was having to use 2different foundations to get the coverage I wanted, which is MAC studio fix & MAC sculpt both in NC30 as one or other on own don't give coverage I need! But doesn't give the greatest colour for my skin.
I came across this foundation by chance when I was in boots waiting for my mum &was standing by no7 counter, I looked at this foundation & thought I'm going to look at reviews for this! So looking at various sites and reading reviews, it seemed to get high praise so I thought let me have a go!
When i went to boots that machine colour match me to deeply beige, the assistant(who by the way was lovely) put abit on me & the colour blended so well, I brought it took it home, wiped off all my other foundation & applied it & I was amazed, colour perfect & that's a first for me, coverage great & looked amazing without feeling heavy! If you have imperfections like me, you will still need concealer & I recommend a finishing powder to, to help keep shine at bay! It has longevity, but you will probably need to re- touch if you want it to last into the night, but that would be the case with any foundation!
If like me, you got my sort of skin, broke, try this foundation, it's the best I' v ever tried & for under £13, bargin I say( well for me, I usally have to buy two expensive ones to make up my foundation) . Great colour match, great foundation!
