I have always struggled to find a foundation to suit me and my skin. They are either too matte and make my skin look super dry and cling to every dry patch I have or they are too dewy and make me look oily. It’s hard because my skin changes all the time and I never really know what to do for the best. After hearing that they rebranded and formulated an old favourite of mine I decided to give the new Bourjois Healthy Mix a go and thought it would be my saviour but I couldn’t get on with it; I just found that it oxidised around my nose and moved within a few hours, not ideal!
I was really starting to give up, but my friend Zoe told me to go to Boots and get colour matched by No.7 as she had been loving their Stay Perfect foundation. I was a bit nervous because I had been colour matched in Boots before and they matched me so wrong I ended up with a foundation 3 shades darker than I needed but I went and got colour matched. The lovely lady at the No.7 counter removed some of my makeup and used this really cool machine which she held to my cheek and it instantly brought up my shade which was Callico; which surprise surprise is their lightest shade haha. I was so eager to try it the next morning and I haven’t looked back since. The shade is a perfect match for my skin and gives a dewy finish without it looking too oily and with a bit of powder it stays put all day which is amazing. I have actually had a few compliments since wearing this foundation too which is always nice. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to try a No.7 foundation but I will definitely be sticking with this one for a while.
Have you ever tried a No.7 foundation?
