No 7 Beautifully Matte Mousse Foundation Review
Now I know what you are going to be thinking, a MOUSSE??? Yep, that's right. When I first saw this shown being used on YouTube, I thought that is going to be way too heavy for my skin and it is really not going to blend well, because of the consistency. Back in the day, I used to adore (and still do enjoy wearing occasionally) the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse. Everyone used to slate it, saying it was such a rubbish product and the colour match was way off, but I loved it. But because everyone was hating it, I listened to the other beauty gurus and stopped wearing it.
This No 7 mousse is so totally different. When you press your finger into it, it feels so soft and whipped like in texture that I knew instinctively that this was going to feel much lighter on application. You can apply this with a damp sponge or beauty blender,or fingertips, but for me when I have used it I have just applied it with my fingertips and just made sure I blended it in well. I even have used this a little deeper in application under my eyes as a concealer and on any areas I might need a little extra coverage on. I definitely would not recommend using with a brush, as it really clung to the bristles and just would not go on evenly, so fingertips is the best application technique I have found.
With this foundation, a fantastic point is that it never, ever looks cakey, it just blends out seamlessly and gives excellent coverage. I would say that it is a medium to full coverage finish and because it is mattifying, a lot of the time I don't need to apply powder over the top, but because I have a super oily T-Zone, I put a little powder on just to make sure. I have applied this foundation at 7am before I go to work, and at 8pm on the evening, the foundation is holding up just as well as when I first applied it. So the lasting time is really excellent.
I love this product and would recommend it to everyone. A great product, just wish there were more colours in the shade range, so more people would be able to purchase it and try it for themselves.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, and please comment below with any No7 products you would like me to try and review for you.
