Overall a decent foundation ! I loved the coverage and it was pretty easy to blend. I don't think this breaks me out which is amazing since so many foundations break me out ! The only issue I have with this foundation is the oil control. I don't think it controls oil that well. Also I find that this transfers quite easily. If you touch your face a lot it can wear off and become a bit patchy. Besides that it's a pretty decent foundation !!

Love this foundation!! It has fantastic coverage and keeps me matte. And I love that I can buy it from Target for a relatively cheap price!

This foundation has been my number 1 foundation for around a year now. I originally went from a high-end foundation to a drug store foundation due to the price. I was expecting a high end foundation to be better quality but I've noticed that I prefer the drugstore foundation so much more!
The number 7 beautifully matte foundation is outstanding and I would recommend it to anyone, it comes in a variety of shades to suit your skin tone.
I found that I prefer to apply this foundation with a brush but other makeup sponges/brushes would work just as well. I would seriously recommend this to anyone who is looking to try a new foundation or is wanting a change.

I bought this foundation ages ago, used it for a few days, and then stashed it in my makeup drawer. I took it out recently in an effort to not waste products, and I'm not sure why I ever stashed it in the first place. This is an excellent foundation. I bought Cool Vanilla, which is just a little too light for me, so I'll have to try going up a shade in the future. I have been struggling with acne around my jawline and chin for the past few months, and even in the worst times - serious redness, scars, bumps, and scabs - this has given great coverage that just requires a little concealer to make those flaws disappear. As a matter of fact, I have actually gotten compliments on how nice my skin is while wearing this foundation, all the while having a million scars underneath. It really gives your skin a flawless look, and to make it even better, it lasts ALL DAY, definitely the 14 hours it boasts on the back of the bottle. Now, I had to dock a star because I bought this hoping that it would keep my oily skin matte, and it does, but only a few hours...By midday I was shiny all over and needing to blot. It also transfers really easily; any time I hugged someone I had to really try to not get my face on their shirt too much, or they would easily end up with a beige splotch on their shoulder. But besides that, this stuff is GREAT!

The best foundation I have ever used. Blends beautifully and gives a very natural glow to my otherwise very oily skin. Love it!

I've been struggling lately to find a product that works on my dry, acne-prone skin. I've went through at least 4 different brands in the past six months alone. I came across this through the reviews here, and its probably the best I've ever used! It applies smoothly and covers imperfections extremely well with only a little bit of product. It isn't too drying on my skin, and so far it hasn't broken me out. My only complaints are the range of color selection/tone (luckily Cool Beige matched my skin passably), and the strange smell when I first apply it. The price is super affordable. Definitely my holy grail foundation.

So far, so good! Used this for around a week so far, my usual Elizabeth Arden foundation didn't have my shade so I decided I'd give this a go...for half the price too!

So far I have nothing bad to say. I've got a shade that matches my skin tone perfectly, it's silky smooth yet Matt and gives wonderful coverage without looking fake of Cakey. Despite giving heavy coverage, it blends perfectly and looks natural!

Right, I bought this foundation yearrrsss ago to replace my Revlon Colorstay. I wanted something full coverage, matte and GOOD for my skin. No7 has ticked allll the boxes! Such beautiful coverage (i apply this foundation with real techniques face brush, buffing it into my skin) and i set it with Vichy Powder. It lasts ALL day and is beautiful. My skin is really acne prone and this is the only foundation that hasnt broken me out and has actually helped my skin improve! Im on my 4th tube and I will definitely buy more.

Of course, theres a downside. I only wish this foundation was more matte. It HAS to be set or will transfer and become oily within an hour.

Let's face it, I am a foundation junkie and this is not my first foundation. So being around the block hundreds of times, this product surprised me. The rep at Target recommended this and without checking Makeup Alley, I went for it. It is full coverage for sure. It stays on for a long time. It is matte. It does not oxidize. The shades are very limited at least in my area but thankfully, Deeply Beige was a great match. So all and all, from one makeup junkie to another, try it!

Color range is limited, but I took a chance on Mocha, since it was on clearance at Target for $10.49 . Had to work with this foundation. The yellow under tones were very strong, but once I blended more with a damp sponge it got better. Finish was great and photograph well. I really wanted to try this because of my combination skin and it did fine. I'm not heavy handed with my foundation, and only have to color correct my under eye area. So my foundation is used primarily in my T-zone and under my eyes. I was shine free for a couple hours. And used blotting sheets, no touch ups.
