I had the matching thing done in Boots yesterday (I'm a warm ivory). The assistant gave me a sample of their Essentially Natural foundation and I think the colour is right, but I wasn't blown away by the effect - maybe I need a bit more coverage. Does anyone have any recommendations from their range? I've used MAC Mineralise before and liked that, if that's any help. I don't want heavy coverage, but would like to be a bit more "finished" if you know what I mean? By the way, I thought it was excellent to be given a sample to try at home and I wasn't put under any pressure to buy until I'd tried it out for myself - made a nice change from the terrifying make up counters! Thanks
I like the Lift and Luminate and also the Radiance one (I think that's the name!). L&L has more coverage. It's meant for maturer skins but I have friends in their 20s and 30s who love it. Coverage is about medium I'd say.
I am currently using Protect and Perfect foundation. I find what makes the most difference to the application is using a foundation brush. Really surprised how much better it is when I use the brush. Mine is also no7, which I think I got as a 3 for 2 when buying foundation.
