I have dry sensitive skin with some redness and my skin tone is a light medium olive shade. I have always used high brand foundations all my life and have wasted a lot of money on them as they just weren't suited for my skin type. From Estée Lauder double wear(gave me dry patches), to Clinique even better makeup foundation (I looked orangey grey and it made me break out), to Lancome teint miracle foundation which I found good however it was pricey and a light coverage. I needed something with a more medium coverage to cover some of my redness but not a full coverage as I do not like the cakey look and want my skin to still be able to breathe. Wanting a cheaper but still a good value foundation, I went to the no7 counter to get matched (did not wear any makeup in order to get the truest colour match to my skin tone) and was matched to the colour 'Warm Beige'. It was the perfect colour, my neck and face colour was one exact shade. After carrying out my face normal face regime before makeup (spf, primer and face oil) I then dotted small amounts of foundation on my face and used a stippling brush (not a blending sponge because it gives me a more sheer coverage) to blend the foundation in circular motions evenly into my face. I also apply it under my eyes instead of concealer and it instantly gives me a radiant glow and look less tired. The foundation sets to a semi matte finish but still gives a dewy glowy look without being drying. Did not sink into any of the pores on my nose and covered my redness well. I do not feel the need to set my face with a powder as my tzone is not oily, but after all these steps it is healthy looking and does not look dry whatsoever. It gives a lovely natural look, great for every day use. Worth the price as it is less than half the amount as a high brand foundation and ticks all the boxes for me. The package is great as you can clearly see how much foundation is left in the see through bottle. It has a pump so it is easy to dispense the foundation without any going to waste or making a mess. It lasts all day without having the need to re apply throughout the day. (I also use a face mist setting spray after finishing my makeup) Overall, a great foundation.
