About this deal

We’re unsure why Boots doesn’t offer the same shade range across each type of foundation, or why it can be so difficult to tell which shade you are in each type. In many ways, MAC’s latest foundation proves the brand is as much of a make-up authority as it’s ever been. The wide shade range caters to the palest and darkest complexions with warm, neutral and cool variations. Light and fluid, the formula is also self-setting and dries to a natural matte finish. The real clincher here, though, is a convenient pen tip that dispenses precisely the amount you need; an invaluable feature for make-up artists and the everyman after an application that’s more controlled. Doubling as a concealer, a little of this foundation goes a long way to hide all manner of sins, but it can also be sheered out for a look as natural as you like. As for its staying power? It’d be nothing short of criminal to wear a foundation for 36 hours in the name of testing – but judging from how well it held up over a long work day, it’s as reliable as they come. Formulated with SkinExpert™ technology analysing 1.9m skin tones for a true-skin match. Available in 36 shades, this product has been specifically formulated with a medium coverage to blend seamlessly into a range of skin tones. Titanium Dioxide - a sunscreen agent which gives a nice broad-spectrum coverage and it's highly stable. Whatever your preference, always remember to hydrate your skin with a good moisturiser or serum before applying your foundation of choice. Burt also recommends prepping the skin with a clay mask to gently exfoliate the skin first. Another tip is to use a primer, which can help smooth fine lines and help the foundation to stay on longer. She also recommends using a flat foundation brush or kabuki-style blender to build coverage, using your fingertips to blend, tap and press in. “The warmth of your fingertips will create the flawless finish.”

This Beautifully Matte foundation held nicely throughout the day and we think it’s definitely better suited for oily skin types. We particularly liked that our T-zone wasn’t oily at the end of the day, which takes some doing. As promised, this foundation truly did give a matte look, although if you apply too much we found that this full-coverage foundation left our faces looking a bit cakey. Out of all of the versions in our hunt for the best No7 foundation, the No7 Stay Perfect Superlight was one of our favourites. Vitamin E - helps to improve and strengthen your skin's protective barrier. Perfect for sensitive skin. This foundation contains SPF15 and the consistency holds the SPF, which is why there was a slight white cast. We suggest going a shade darker

We’ve ranked Boots No7 foundations from worst to best, from Stay Perfect to Beautifully Matte

Pros: contains SPF | feels weightless | blurs pores | looks fresh from day to night | waterproof | non-greasy silicon formula is especially good for skin prone to shine | gives full coverage without an overdone look Panthenol - help the skin to attract water and then hold into it. Boosts skin barrier function. Soothes and reduces inflammation However, because the shade choices across these ranges vary so wildly, only a selection of the range features a suitable skin tone match (which for us is Warm Beige, for the record). Plus, the majority of foundation options only have around 15-20 shades, which is a really small selection by comparison to many other brands. Each No7 foundation was tested on our face with a silicone primer and a water-based primer. We also tested these No7 foundations with a foundation brush and a beauty blender in an attempt to mimic the various combinations we expect you will use and experience.

Always feel as flawless as your complexion with our No7 Stay Perfect Foundation - a life-proof foundation for a natural finish with up to 24-hour super-staying power. Expertly formulated, this comfortable foundation with medium coverage feels lightweight and breathable, giving a beautifully even-toned complexion that lasts all day long. It can be relied upon to stay perfect; weather-proof, transfer-proof and won't slide or shine on oily skin - it won't let you down.
