          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.

                      I cannot praise this product enough! I have oily/acne-prone skin with a few dark spots/acne scars, so I'm extremely picky about what I use on my face, especially foundations. I've used SO many different brands and formulations of foundations: cream, powder, airbrush, cheap, expensive, etc. This foundation has excellent full coverage and has a matte finish, so you don't have to follow with translucent powder if you're in a hurry. I don't have to use additional concealer with this product, and it lasts ALL day without needing retouching. It doesn't cause me to breakout at all, which is AMAZING, considering most of the expensive brands that I've tried inevitably result in massive breakouts after a few days. But the absolute very best thing about this product is that it's CHEAP!!! Seriously, you cannot find better quality for a better value than this.

                          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, that may be in your shade range:
                          • 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
                          Again, 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.

                          In general, the warm shades our foundations will have more yellow undertones while the cool shades have more pink.
                          In the Beautifully Matte foundation range, the only shade with warm undertones is "Deeply Beige".
