On the weekend I spent more than an hour at No7! (I genuinely think my Mum was fed up with me).
Picking the perfect foundation and skin products for me is the hardest thing to do… I have such sensitive skin.
Initially, I was using MAC Foundation (full coverage) everyday and my skin felt so heavy, my pores got blocked and I started getting acne. I stopped using MAC and I kept that foundation, as well as my Estée Lauder foundation for more special occasional use.
I was recommended by my cousin to use No7 products when I was at University in 2012/3. Since then, I have started to use their products and I cannot express my love for No7. Their products are so good to my skin and I really appreciate my cousin for pushing me to buy make up from them.
I have been using No7’s Stay Perfect Primer and Stay Perfect Foundation for a few years now. The foundation has good medium coverage and it is build-able to full coverage with 2 to 3 thin layers. Don’t worry, this isn’t a review but I wanted to give you a gist. The fact is, as an Asian girl it is hard to find the perfect shade to match our skins as we don’t have a huge range of brands to choose from. For example, Asian girls love MAC because it has a wider range of shades available to them. With No7 I was able to find the right shade, I got no breakouts and it sits smoothly on my skin.
Let me tell you how No7 works. One of the lovely No7 staff helped me choose my foundation with a little device that took pictures of my skin and it matched me to a foundation shade. It is fairly precise. The lady that was helping me then asked me a few questions like what my skin type is and how often I wear foundation. She told me I had two options, the ‘Beautifully Matte’ or ‘Stay Perfect’ foundation. She tested both on me and I decided to purchase both. Over a period of time, I preferred the ‘Stay Perfect’ to the ‘Beautifully Matte’ foundation, as it sat on my skin properly. So obviously, I stuck to that one.
Positives: Has SPF 15, sits perfectly on your skin, no breakouts, natural looking, stays on your skin for the whole day and finally it is an everyday-use product.
Negatives: I cannot think of any!! Literally.
It is AS EASY as that! Trust me when I say, you will not be disappointed.
I wanted to thank No7 & Boots for all the love they have shown me over the few years.
I hope this helped and happy purchasing at No7…
The new Christmas limited edition make up is amazing. Try their new Matte Lip Crayon , it is my fav (I have it in the colour Dusky Rose) and it would make the perfect Christmas stocking gift for the ladies, so boys, take note.
