This week saw the arrival of the newest foundation in the brilliant Boots No7 Match Made service, the Airbrush Away Foundation. You may remember yonks ago the Airbrush Away Primer launched to much excitement as it’s a very good primer that I personally really loved (I must dig it out again actually as now my skin is a lot better I’ve become horrendously aware of my pores!) so I couldn’t wait to try this new foundation! Boots No7 do extremely good foundations – seriously, if you’re struggling to find your perfect base, head to one of their counters as not only do they have the Match Made service that’ll ensure you’re perfectly matched shade-wise, they also have an extremely extensive array of formulas, so you’re bound to find something you like.
Dropper-style foundations are all the rage (I always think using the term “all the rage” confirms that I’m turning into my mother) at the moment, with some great high street versions launching recently. The Boots No7 Airbrush Away Foundation is a little different to the others I’ve tried, as it’s less like an oil and more like a serum. It’s quite thick in texture, but it buffs down brilliantly so don’t worry if you think this sounds like it’ll feel heavy on the face, as once buffed in, skin just feels soft and hydrated rather than covered in product.
As soon as I used this I was reminded of just how brilliant the Match Made service is – I cannot get a better skin match than Calico, and it’s very handy to just know that any new products that fall under the “Calico” chart will suit my skin tone perfectly. Not only does this foundation make skin look luminous – seriously glowy; it’s that post-facial glow – it also offers a buildable coverage, so you can apply all over, buff in, then add a little more to areas that need the help. Redness is covered, fine lines are plumped and skin still looks like skin, but at its very, very best.
I figured it would probably be a good product when I first heard about it launching, but the No7 Airbrush Away Foundation is a beautiful product that delivers skin-like coverage in a lovely, nourishing formula that stays in place and really enhances skin, to give that healthy, hydrated glow. It’s out now for £16.50 here – link.
