My favourite new foundation: No7 Stay Perfect


It is very rare that I find a find a foundation I love. I've been pretty loyal to my Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation for many years with the odd dable in Estee Lauder Double Wear or Collection Lasting Perfection foundation for a heavy night of partying. However, Silk Creme is the most universal foundation I own- perfect for day or night. It gives a flawless base without being too heavy. However, my latest tube was on the verge of running out and I committed myself to trying something new. I am going to New York in May and I will probably buy 2 or 3 tubes when I am there as it works out much cheaper. I had heard a lot of hype about the No7 Stay Perfect foundation. This retails for £14.50 for 30mls. The make-up is water-based and needs a good shake before you use it. When you first apply it (I use a Real Technqiues Buffing Brush), the foundation looks really dewy on the skin but as it sets, it becomes more of a satin finish. 1 coat gives a lovely amount of coverage and it is easily buildable. As usual, I use my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer to touch up any blemishes. I have been so impressed with this foundation and lots of people have commented on my "lovely skin" since I started wearing it! It lasts pretty well during the day- the usual places such as around the nose and mouth would need touched up come tea time.

A great product for anyone looking for dewy, gorgeous skin!
