The best match foundation yet!

No7 Stay Perfect Foundation - Shade Calico RRP £14.00
The last time I said that I found my favourite foundation, I really meant it however since then, I've found my ultimate best yet in all senses. I got matched up at Ellesmere Port Boots a couple of months ago now when the new match foundation service first came into Boots - which I think is genius by the way but as I always do, I hate committing to anything there and then so the kind MUA gave me 2 little samples to try and go home with of the Stay Perfect foundation and Instant Radiance foundation, both in shade Calico.

The shade match is incredible and I feel like how have I coped with all previous shades of foundation! I loved the No7 Instant Radiance foundation too, but I felt it didn't quite last as long on my skin during the day as the Stay Perfect. Getting onto that, it doesn't feel sticky, make my dry skin look worse, give me spots, it's literally perfect. I bought this bottle finally taking the plunge and got £3 off too with a no7 voucher - why have they stopped doing the £5 off? Boo!

It lasts all day without any single touch ups and I'm super impressed with it if you couldn't already tell! I wouldn't say the foundation is completely matte but then again, I do wear tinted moisturiser usually or some other brightening products underneath or on top of my skin as I prefer the illuminated look. Stay Perfect retails at £14 from Boots, not too bad when you compare to higher end foundations. I won't be trying any others for a long time, I say this then another will climb into my basket I'm sure.

Have you tried the No7 match service in Boots? What is your favourite foundation?

  3. Oo I live near to Ellesmere Port haha. I'm intrigued by the service, my sis has had it done but she hasn't actually worn the foundation she bought yet so she's no good!

    1. How do you resist wanting to go to Cheshire Oaks every weekend?! It's quite far from me but well worth the occasional trip. It's worth trying the service since it's free and you might be surprised by your findings. Think of the No7 vouchers ;) x

    1. A few Ellesmere Port ladies it seems. It's making me want to go talking about it now actually, and to the aquarium..hmm may make a cheeky trip there in the next few weeks. I know, they're super busy but I waited around for a bit and then grabbed the lady, it was quick and she didn't pressure me to buy either x

  5. I also matched up to this foundation and the sales lady gave me a little sample of it. I've actually used the sample about 5 or 6 times now and still got loads left! Planning on buying the full size when the next No7 £5 off voucher comes out ;)

    1. I know I used it quite a bit but finally ran out of the sample. She only gave me a generous sample of one of them which was fair enough. x

  6. Wait i've just re-read your post...the £5 off voucher has stopped completely?! I just thought it was on hold because the £3 one was out with the £5 skincare also. Damn.

    1. That's what I heard anyway but we'll see! They usually do loads of offers at Christmas time though so fingers crossed! x
