I have just bought this foundation today. I have just tried it out and I have to say I LOVE it!
I've lived by my MAC Studio Fix Fluid for years but started to feel like it made my skin look too matte and was in search for a foundation that gave a dewy finish. However, after looking all over and reading reviews I found most 'luminous' foundations are for dry skin therefore not suitable for oily/combination skin (mine is combination) as it can make your skin too oily :(
After reading many reviews of the No7 Intelligent Balance Mousse Foundation I finally bought it in New Ivory (which is the lightest shade) and it definitely lives upto my expectations. It gave my skin a smooth finish so bye bye dry looking skin and I kind of feel it that it makes me look younger (this may be due to the fact that this shade actually matches my skin tone and I usually go for a darker shade than my own :l) but also because it locks in moisture I have less lines on my face (e.g laughter lines), as with my MAC foundation my skin would be so matte around my normal/dry areas such as around my mouth that when I laugh the lines would stay.
The best thing about this foundation is the feel of it on my skin. This is the first mousse I have used, but it is oh so smooth on application and it feels velvety to the touch :)
However, it has a couple of downsides. If you smell the product in the tub it does have a weirdish smell but once I applied it to my face I could not smell it on my face at all!
I obviously haven't used it enough to see if it broke me out so time will tell. But my first impressions are very good and I may be visiting boots very soon to get the next darker shade and maybe mix it with the colour I have? - because there is only the choice of 4 shades there is quite a difference from one shade to the next - so 'Buff' would be too dark for me :(
Also, not sure why mine has a white lid? on the website/reviews they all have a black lids so I hope I haven't got old stock :s oh well <3 it too much to care :)
