No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation Review and Swatches

NO7 Beautifully Matte Foundation Beige Review

I recently went into boots and purchased the No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation in the shade Beige. I have never tried any base products from No7 so I was intrigued to see how it worked with my skin. The foundation claims to be a Matte Finish, Medium-Full Coverage, Shine Free for 12 hours, Minimises Pores and also has SPF 15.

When I first applied this foundation I used my Real Techniques Sponge and I didn't like the finish at all. I tried it again the next day using my flat top brush and found I got the perfect flawless finish. On applying this foundation I would say it was medium coverage. I applied a little more over my chin and cheeks and found it built up easily to full coverage like I wanted. I let it set for around 5 minutes and then applied my powder on top.

After reading the claims of having shine free skin for 12 hours I didn't expect it to last at all. I have tried many foundations that claim to last but haven't lasted even 3 hours without touching up. I applied this at 8.30am and didn't check it again until 6pm and I have to say I was amazed. My oily skin is such a pain as I usually apply powder after 3-4 hours but with this I didn't feel the need to touch up all day! It really did last and I had no shine! My nose and chin are my worst area's which become really oily. At 6pm the only area I noticed the smallest amount of oil was the inner sides of my nose which I just blotted and it looked perfect again.

Overall this foundation has to be the best I have found yet. I am so shocked at how it kept me shine free. Any of you who have oily skin should give this a go. The shade range is very good and easy to find a match. Also I have to say I love that you can see how much product you have left, it reminds me of the Benefit Hello Foundation.

I am really happy with this foundation. Usually I only go for higher end foundations as I find the shade range is usually better and they work for my skin more but this one has really impressed me.

  3. No 7 is a range I always overlook. For some reason I always associate it with older ladies, possibly because I never see young people at their counter in Boots. I don't really know but this has made me want to have a look at what they have to offer!

  20. Great review hun this sounds sooo good! I've not tried anything from No.7 either but I'll have to pick this up next time I'm in Boots as this is exactly what I'm after. I'm using L'Oreal True Match for everyday and I look so greasy a couple hours after so this sounds perfect, especially for Summer. Thanks for recommending lovey xx
