So off I went in search for something to replace my much beloved DD liquid foundation and concealer. Now, being a fair maiden means that finding a shade that suits you isn't as easy as you might think. I headed to Boots in hope I would find something (that wouldn't make me look orange!). In most Boots stores there is a service called 'No7 Foundation Match Made Service', which measures your skin's colour and matches to your perfect skin-true foundation.
The assistant asks you a few questions regarding what effect (shine, matt etc.), what skin type you are, and how much coverage you want from the foundation. A whole questionnaire just for your face! Although I wasn't the slightest bit surprised when the device chose the lightest colour foundation they had - Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation in shade 'Calico'. In my head I was laughing thinking I was too pale for this brand, however when the assistant applied it to my jawline, it was perfect! It looks exactly the same as the DD foundation, and did I mention No7 is on a 3 for 2? I bought two of the foundations and one concealer - Match Made Concealer (which is also uniquely matched to your skin tone using the No7 Match Made service), so I picked out the same shade as the foundation - 'Calico'.
If you have been using the Dainty Doll range like myself and have struggled to find a replacement, look no further! I think the reason why I stick with the same products is because I like what I like, as others may agree. Once you find a shade that suits you, why would you need to try any others? No one likes change, however I'm so glad I managed to find a replacement to my everyday makeup so fast. The finish is semi matte, and gives a medium coverage. One pump of the dispenser is just the right amount, and only time will tell if it is weather proof too!
Have you tried this foundation before?
