No7 Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation - Foundation Match

I was recently at a Boots event and the chance to get myself foundation matched with the No7 Foundation Match Made Service came up so I decided to do it. It literally took just seconds .. my existing foundation was cleared away and this nifty gadget was applied to my skin and then the No7 Consultant declared my perfect match to be ... Cool Ivory. A few questions later about what I am looking for in a foundation and the match was made with No7 Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation.

Unfortunately they were out of stock of the Cool Ivory but the consultant said that the closest match would be Cool Vanilla.

No7 say 

Natural/Semi Matte finish
Medium Cover
For Lasting Coverage

No7 Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation helps your skin to resist the signs of make-up meltdown and gives non-stop complexion perfection.

Soft, silky and flattering in any light. It will not rub or fade away, keeping your make-up looking freshly applied for retouch free for 24 hours.

Available in 17 shades

My thoughts

I was given the new formula which promises to be retouch free for 24 hours (the previous version promised 16hrs). I found Cool Vanilla to be a really good match but obviously have yet to try the Cool Ivory.

The foundation comes in a bottle with a pump that dispenses the perfect amount needed. It feels quite thick but soon melts into the skin and feels light on the skin. It is easily blended to become virtually undetectable and really natural looking. The finish is silky looking, fresh and bright. Coverage wise it is excellent, It isn't full coverage but evens out the skin wonderfully and I need just a touch more over my redness to look flawless. The staying power is impressive, I haven't tested it for the full 24 hours but certainly if I apply it at 7am it still looks good at 7pm... My only niggle was that after a few hours my nose started to look a bit shiny and oily but I soon realised a touch of powder after application solved this problem (I am loving Cargo HD Translucent Powder ) Other than that this foundation is perfect for me.
Would I buy it? Absolutely!

  1. I'm looking forward to trying this shortly. When I was matched they didn't have my shades either (I'm matched to 2). Heard so many good things about this foundation, looks lovely on you xx

  2. Thanks Mel x Look forward to reading your review x

  3. Always a big fan of No7 stuff...so might try this one out see if i can find a shade thats pale enough!!

  4. I had the chance to try this foundation match gadget today, after several clicks a shade of cool beige came up. it was applied & I looked washed out, not good. wasn't going to part with my cash for wrong shade, so I didn't give in & as agreed with by the helpful assistant another 2 manual attempts were made & bingo without the gadget we found I was a honey shade.
    so don't always rely on the skin match tool :-)
