        At first looks great, but maybe 30 minutes later, it looks cakey and oxidizes! I end up wiping what I can off and put a little lotion on. Not worth buying.

          I love love this! I have extremely oily skin and have been using another one of No. 7's foundations only to have it out of stock in my color, so I tried this one and it really is matte! I have very oily skin (like an hour after applying I'm already blotting), but this one lasts much longer. Eventually my T zone gets a little oily, but being prego with even oilier skin than usual, I'm very thrilled with the product. And not to mention the price, way better than I used to pay for my other Double Wear foundation!

            i have oily skin and usually "matte" foundations make my skin look super cakey and dried out. (yes I moisturize and all that jazz.)

            i stumbled upon this foundation and LOVE.IT. i don't have to worry about my oily skin coming out in this foundation.

            This foundation was surprisingly disappointing. It felt very smooth and silky when applying but is very cakey with a powdery finish. It also has a grey undertone and isn't flattering.

            Satin not matte, but very beautiful

            By Julia

            from California

            Comments about No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I bought this foundation in the UK while on vacation and I'm obsessed! I would say it has more of a satin finish though, which I must say is more beautiful than a matte finish. I used to use Too Faced Born This Way foundation and found it to be too dewy for my taste and I'm glad I found this! It's hard to find in stores unfortunately so I think I'll have to rely on buying it in stores.

            Comments about No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I've tried so many different types of foundations and I'm always careful about what I try because I have such sensitive skin, one thing my skin doesn't like and it'll show me just how much right away. I have oily skin and I've always struggled with shine control and this was okay with maintaining shine. I used it over Too Faced primed and poreless primer oil-free and it was fine for an hour or two but midday I ended up getting oily as usual which looked pretty gross. I switched primers to Bare Minerals and shine control was better but not fully matte. I also have acne prone skin with a few acne scars and the coverage isn't bad at all it actually goes on very smoothly and is very blendable to work with and with a little concealer the scars are pretty much gone. The only problem with this and the reason I gave it 4 stars is that it OXIDIZES likes crazy! I have fair skin and use the shade cool vanilla and this was so great for like 1 hour but as soon as you step outside into the sun or basically just out it mixes with the oxygen and turns orange! No joke like orange and clumpy I was horrified to see myself for the first time when I noticed it did this! I'm not sure if this happens for the darker shades but i know for a fact that it happens on fair skin with the light shades. Other than that for the price I think its nice maybe to wear at night when going out or just reapplying if you really want.

                I do like this makeup. Wish it came in more shades. I will say that it does have gray undertones, but I like it because it doesn't come off as red or yellow. It is very matte. You will not like it if you want a really sheer coverage.

                    A:

                    Thanks for contacting us about animal testing.

                    Boots and its subsidiary businesses do not test any products or ingredients on animals, and do not commission others to do so on our behalf. In fact in March 2013 it became illegal for any company to test cosmetic products or ingredients on animals in Europe.

                    The issue of animal testing on products and raw materials is one we take very seriously at Boots UK. For over 20 years our policy for cosmetics and toiletries has been that we do not carry out, or ask our suppliers to carry out on our behalf, animal testing on either ingredients or finished products and you can rest assured that we apply our policy rigorously.

                    Boots would like to see an end to all animal testing, and we fully supported the development of the ban on animal testing on ingredients that came into force in the European Union in 2013. The ban applies to all cosmetics products purchased from any store across the EU and completes the ban that started with finished products in 2004 and was extended to cover most types of ingredient testing in 2009. The 2013 law has completed the ban for all forms of animal testing for both products and ingredients and now ensures that all companies in our industry in Europe are now aligned with the same policy that Boots has had in place for over 20 years.

                    We would definitely like to see an end to all animal tests. We fully support the intentions of the BUAV and take a keen interest in the development and introduction of alternative forms of safety testing.

                    We hope you find this helpful and reassuring.

                    Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately we don't have an accurate way to recommend a shade based on a description of your skin tone. To help, here is a description of our shades for Beautifully Matte Foundation, lightest to darkest:
                    • Cool Vanilla- Fair with cool (pink) undertone
                    • Cool Ivory- Medium Fair with cool (pink) undertone
                    • Cool Beige- Medium Fair with cool (pink) undertone
                    • Deeply Beige- Medium with warm (yellow) undertone
                    • Wheat- Medium with cool (pink) undertone
                    • Mocha- Deep with warm (yellow) undertone
                    We apologize for not being able to more specifically answer your question. Several Ulta stores across the country now carry No7 Foundations, so hopefully your local Ulta is one of these so you may test the shades in person.

                    We're sorry, but we don't have a reliable way to compare our foundation shades to other lines. The shade Warm Nude in Two Faced doesn't seem to be close to any of the No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation shades. You may want to look at Calico in the No7 Airbrush Away line. Optical blurring give your skin a radiant finish, like you are in soft focus. We also recommend visiting your local Ulta for a recommendation or looking at the color options on the web page.

While the shade honey is available in the No7 Airbrush Away Foundation and No7 Stay Perfect Foundation Lines, at this time we have no shade in the No7 Beautifully Matte line that will be equal to Honey. The closest in shade would be Cool Beige, however, it will be lighter. We hope this helped!

                    The No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation SPF 15 is buildable, from a medium coverage to a full coverage look. Apply where you need it the most, normally on the cheeks, nose and chin and then build to the look you are going for. While it may cover blemishes, you want to begin with a concealer, such as the No7 Stay Perfect Blemish Cover, which is hypo-allergenic and good for all skin types. We hope this was helpful!

                    A:

                    Thank you for your inquiry! No7's Beautifully Matte Foundation is a medium-full coverage foundation. If you prefer medium coverage you can simply use less product or blend it with primer before applying to your face. If you'd like full coverage, just build until you reach your desired level of coverage. Regarding the consistency, we'd describe it as medium-thick. It isn't as thick as a paste, but it certainly is not watery, runny or thin. And just a friendly user tip: while applying foundation with fingers can get the job done, we much prefer to blend this foundation with a brush. It gives a much more polished look and then your other products (blush, powder, etc) will go on and also wear much better for you. We hope this is helpful info for you!

                    A:

                    Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately we don't have an accurate way to compare our foundation shades with those from other lines. To help, here is a description of our shades for Beautifully Matte Foundation, lightest to darkest:
                    • Cool Vanilla- Fair with cool (pink) undertone
                    • Cool Ivory- Medium Fair with cool (pink) undertone
                    • Cool Beige- Medium Fair with cool (pink) undertone
                    • Deeply Beige- Medium with warm (yellow) undertone
                    • Wheat- Medium with cool (pink) undertone
                    • Mocha- Deep with warm (yellow) undertone
                    We apologize for not being able to more specifically answer your question. Several Ulta stores across the country now carry No7 Foundations, so hopefully your local Ulta is one of these so you may test the shades in person.
