    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.

            I was really excited to try this product, but the color selection is very small. I chose the lightest color but it was still too dark for me. The application and coverage was great, but I just wish there was more variety of color choices.

                I bought this make-up because I have maturing skin and wanted to discontinue use of the powder I had been using as it tends to settle in wrinkles making them show up more. I was very pleased with the color, the matte quality, and how long lasting the product was. I just wish is would cover the dark circles under my eyes better. Then again, nothing seems to do that so maybe there is nothing that will cover them.

                    If you are fair skinned I DO NOT recommend this product, it oxidized on me very badly. My skin looks like an orange. I tried the product on my friend who is Asian (keep in mine many Vietnamese women like lighter foundations) and where she has an olive/yellow skin tone.. it looked GORGEOUS on her so I gave it to her.

                    Bad shades, bad smell, & gray undertone.

                    Comments about No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                    If you are a woman of color this foundation is not for you. The one shade for our skin tone is very much lighter than what you see on this website. Not to mention, and this goes for all buyers, this foundation has a gray undertone and it washes out all of the colour in your face. You will need to apply pigmented face powder, bronzer and contour. But the more serious issue I had with this foundation was the smell. It has the scent of clay and fish. Normally I make my off-shade foundations work with powder but I can't get past the smell of this product. Waste of money.

                      Well don't get me wrong I love this foundation, the only thing is when I first blot it on my face with a brush it does have this weird chemically smell. Nothing you can't get past but that's really just my biggest concern with this product.
                      I didn't always have oily skin but after using ELF foundation (in porcelain) my skin became really oily so I really needed to find a good oil-free and matte foundation. I tried this and it was great I love it problem again being the chemically smell when first applying and maybe it's just my face but it does give me that kind of pink undertone where it makes it really difficult to blend in the foundation with my neck and chest. OKay im dragging on but thats about it.

                          We're sorry, but we don't have a reliable way to compare our foundations to other lines. We recommend trying to find this in your local Ulta or looking at the color options on the web page. Based on what we can see from the web page, either Cool Ivory or Cool Beige may be close, but that's just a starting point. We apologize that we can't answer your question more definitively.

                        Is the color "wheat" a cool or warm tone?
