No7 Beautifully matte foundation in the shade Calico.
What it claims:
“Achieve the appearance of flawless matte skin with a velvety soft finish and no powdery flatness. This unique foundation containing fine oil-absorbing powders, minimises the need for touch ups by controlling shine all day long. Blemishes and flaws are concealed and pores appear minimised. Non pore blocking and Hypo-Allergenic: Because all skin can have sensitive moments, all our foundation products are hypo-allergenic so they are kind to even the most sensitive skin”
Before. Red mushy winter face
After. BAAAM, Porcelain skin in a bottle!
My skin easily gets red in wintertime and this foundation has slight yellow undertones which neutralizes my redness. I am extremely impressed with this foundation and its beautiful satin finish. The best things about this foundation is that there was no feeling of me actually wearing makeup, a huge plus! It claims to be long lasting but i’ve found that i wears off at around 6 hours. But with this lightweight formula you can easily do a quick touch up without it looking cakey.
Covering yet light weight
Suitable for sensitive skin
Matte without getting crusty.
Does not require powder.
Poor shade range (two dark tones, really bitch?).
Smells weird, haha.
Not as long lasting as it claims.
