When I seen that No7 was bringing out a new moisturising foundation I new I had to pick it up and try it. What I especially love about No7 is that they colour match your skin using a special machine that tells you what shade is perfect for your skin tone. This is perfect for me as I am pretty pale like most of us Irish/Northern Irish people, so I don't have to worry about getting a foundation that is far to dark for my skin tone and makes me look orange.
Moving onto the foundation. I picked it up in my local boots for £15.00 and it is a 30ml tube. I was glad to see that it is in a plastic tube instead of their glass bottles as it means when you get down to the end of the tube, you can cut it open and get every little drop out!
The Hydra Luminous foundation claims to 'give a flawless, natural finish and a healthy all-day glow'. Lots of foundations claim this and just leave me looking shiny, so I couldn't wait to see how this left my skin.
I applied the foundation with a damp beauty blender, and a very little product went a very long way, if it was a pump bottle it would have been 1 pump for my full face. The consistence of the foundation is pretty runny but it applies soo easy and dries in pretty quickly too. However I was able to apply my whole face without it drying in and being unworkable.
The coverage is medium to borderline full, you can definitely build it up to a full coverage without and issues. It didn't look cakey or stick to any of my dry areas. This was a big thing for me as my skin has been soo dry and sensitive at the moment I was worried it would go flaky, but it went on beautifully and soo easy to blend.
It definitely gives a natural finish to the skin with a dewy glow. I didn't look sweaty and greasy I just had a lovely glow that was in fact very natural. I received soo many compliments on how nice my makeup was and how healthy my skin looked when wearing the foundation.
The Hydra Luminous Moisturising foundation definitely lived up to all its claims. I would go as far to say this is one of my all time favourite foundations. I also have wore the foundation for more than a month so this isn't just first time luck it has applied and wore the exact same with every application. For the price I don't think there is anything out there that compares to this foundation for me at the moment. I have actually just ordered my second tube.
Have you tried this foundation yet? If you haven't and are looking for a new one I would highly recommended you pick up this one and give it a go.
Lots of Love..
