No7 Mineral Loose Powder Foundation

Today I wanted to share a review on No7's Mineral Loose Powder Foundation. I picked this up about three weeks ago as the weather's getting warmer and I really wanted a lighter foundation that isn't going to feel like it's melting off my face in the heat of the coming summer months.

I went into boots and the very nice consultant matched me to the lightest shade true ivory. I was really suprised at this as I usually am matched with much darker shades. The consultant said that with this foundation you needed to go lighter as it comes out a lot darker than a liquid foundation.
It's priced at £14.50 and for that you get a lot of product (10g), because you don't need to use much it will last me for a very long time! 

The coverage is really, really good for a mineral based foundation. I may even go as far to say i think it provides better and a more even coverage than some of the liquid foundations that I have tried. 
The coverage is amazing and gives you a lovely flawless finish and a nice natural 'glow' to the skin. It doesn't feel heavy or cakey and my skin feels like it can breathe. 
Basicaly, I'm a little bit in Love. 

It also comes with a really nice fluffy kabuki brush, which works really well at applying the foundation. 
I think that this is going to be an amazing addition to my summer-time makeup bag! 

You can purchase this foundation from boots, and I belive that they are currently running their £5 off No7 vouchers so you could get this even cheaper! :)

Has anyone else tried this foundation? 
Can anyone reccommend any other mineral Foundations? 

Lots of Love Till Next Time...

  1. Great review!

    I've not noticed this foundation in Boots (but then, I haven't been to Boots properly for ages - always too busy etc).

    Have you tried Bare Escentuals (mineral) foundation? It rocks :)


  2. Thank you :) - I haven't tried it, I was wondering what the coverage is like? x

  3. Coverage is really good. I'd say medium-full. And yes, it's more expensive but it lasts for aaaages :)


  4. Love it!
