Always on the look-out for popular make-up, here’s a medium-full coverage foundation from No7.
Lift & Luminate is a fairly thick creamy liquid, easy to apply and blends nicely – it gives a lovely youthful appearance to skin and yeah, we think it helps a little bit with the appearance of firmer skin.
There is a bit of a downside though, especially for dry skin or those of you with larger pores – the foundation tends to ‘gather’ in both, so you really can tell you’re wearing foundation. For normal, oily or combination skin types you shouldn’t find the same issues as the foundation sets to a nice dewy finish.
We recommend trying the testers in store as there are 14 shades to choose from and they’re not all that forgiving if you’ve chosen a shade either side of your skin tone.
We also recommend that you don’t stock-pile these on a Boots 3for2 offer as even when left unopened over a long period (12+ months) the ingredients start to separate – they can be shaken and mixed back together, but this loses the best blendability (hmmm, is that a word?!).
Overall the quality of this product is good, but try to get hold of a sample in your preferred shade first.
