No7 Stay Perfect Foundation...



Boots - Stay Perfect Foundation - New Ivory - £15


This is a foundation that I was talked into buying by the No7 lady when there was the 3for2 and the £5 off No7 vouchers. I no way needed a new foundation at all, but on my quest for the perfect foundation I was suckered in!
Looking back I actually cannot believe I bought this:
1. She colour matched my hand.
2. This hand was darker because I had fake tan on.
3. He words "this isn't matching because of you tan but should be pale enough for your face".


Madness I know, but like I said there was a lot of money off this. This foundation and the things bought here came to around £19 I think!
The packaging is amazing, I love the glass bottle and the pump (TAKE NOTE MAC - GIVE FREE PUMPS). It feels heavy so in my opinion feels more expensive and as it is glass would look really nice on a dressing table (saying that mine is in the box in a draw).
I haven't really had much use out of it to be honest because I am now in love with my MAC foundation seen here, I have barely used anything else. The foundation is nice, good coverage and a slightly dewy finish that can be left or matted down with powder but for me there is nothing to write home about. It will be a good foundation that I will be happy to have in my drawer....anyone else have foundations like that?

  1. I know exactly what you meen - I went for a Clinique consultation for my 18th birthday around 18 months ago and got a gooorgeous foundation that ... well it kind of didn't match as well as I thought it did and left me looking a little ill (I'm so super pale if I put anything darker on me it looks like I'm trying to cover up some dreadful illness or something) it broke my heart ha-ha it's a great foundation just not for me.

    This one looks lovely too (Aside from the colour problem obviously) damn those sneaky makeup counter people ha-ha

  2. I've been using this for the last couple of weeks and I actually really like it. Such a shame it's not a great colour match for you!

  3. Sometimes I don't think the BA actually know what they are talking about or can't be bothered with you how wierd that she colour matched your hand......lol suppose it depends where you go, sometimes I hate asking........I always find the mac counter really helpful :) I used this foundation myself not a huge fan as I dnt think it is a true 'ivory' but it was okay for the price I thought :)
