SERIES: Have You Discovered.. Foundation?


So the third week of #haveyoudiscovered series is upon us and its topic is Foundation. I have a good one for you this week :)

No 7 Beautifully Matte

It took me a while to bite the bullet and go ahead with this purchase, I am not sure why and I regret not buying it sooner. I could honestly rave about this product forever so I will try not to bore you too much!

No7 is obviously known to pretty much everyone as they have been around for so long. It is honestly just so good for oily skin, I have suffered forever and hadn't found anything yet that worked well on my skin or matched colour wise as I am quite pale. I took their Colour Match skin test by the lovely lady at the local counter. I was matched with 'Calico' the palest, of course! She gave me a tester which she said was enough to last one day, but ended up lasting me 4!

It is such full even coverage, super long lasting and need minimal amount too. Price wise it is reasonable at £12.95, as much as any drugstore but it does last a fair while. On my face, usually make-up I have used in the past (i.e. L'Oreal True Match) turns out cakey and orange but this never has done so far in the 4 months I have been using it. So I am really chuffed :) Especially, as a main issue sometimes is having to keep blotting my face during the day, I never have too anymore!

What would you pick as your holy-grail foundation? I will be checking #haveyoudiscovered hastag on Twitter to see your posts on what you come up with too :) Come back next week for Concealer!

Love, Gemma xo

  2. This sounds lovely! I cant colour match myself at all, I find it so hard to find a foundation that doesn't look orange just because I need a darker shade. Might have to give this a go! xx
