Hi lovelies, I haven't yet reviewed a foundation on LucyyWrites. I've always stuck to the same 2 foundations over the last few years, why would I need to change? Whenever I did, I was disappointed. I was shopping in Boots back along, when 17 had an offer on. I spotted this foundation and decided to try it. I haven't seen any bloggers review this foundation yet? I stick to the drugstore foundations, since my Debenhams is awful, I won't ever buy foundation online. And every time I've tried higher end foundations they clog my skin up so bad and break me out, especially you Chanel, Chanel gave me a few Monsters. Yuck.
If you've got any suggestions for me to look at when I'm in a better Deb's, leave them below?
17 Miracle Matte is fairly new out, when I picked mine up I had to undo the testers to try, always nice when the testers are clean. I went for the lightest shade available since I'm super pale and went for Soft Ivory. There's 6 shades. Soft ivory, Honey, Biscuit, Fair, Natural, Porcelain. Personally I don't think there's enough shades, how can 6 shades cater for all the skin tones out there? I feel it actually caters for the paler of skin tones and a few of the shades were quite alike and more for the pinker skin tones. Shouldn't there be a few darker shades though?
Soft Ivory suits my skin 99% I'm really pleased, over the years the only brand that matched me near enough was Maybelline. The packaging isn't as pretty as your high end, though I wouldn't say Mac is pretty. It's bright, cheap and stands out from my other foundations. The pump in the foundation is really good though, I know some aren't always the best.
Being a Matte Satin finish, the foundation won't be for everyone, I was worrying if it would actually suit my skin type. I have dry skin. Don't let this put you off if you are normal or oily. I make sure I moisturise very well and exfoliate my face for sure when using this foundation just in case. The foundation is oil free, there for suiting those with oily skin. And has all day shine control, again helping with those with oily skin. Miracle Matte glides onto my skin and one pump covers my face and my blemishes, giving a medium even coverage. Oh and includes the usual SPF 15, like every other foundations does. I find the foundation stays on my skin most of the day, most foundations do for me, however I prefer to use my new primer, also from 17 with this foundation for a better lasting finish for all day. I apply in small amounts, with a foundation brush and blend in, finishing with the beauty blender dupe makeup sponge.
This is currently on offer for £4.99 for 30ml in Boots, normally retails at £5.99, the 3 for 2 offer is still on and the reduced price is also still included in the offer. I'd say give this a try, you never know and for £4.99 who can complain, I certainly love this foundation and have been using it every other day. I haven't had a break out since using this and have received a lot of compliments when wearing it. I'm not a skin expert, let alone foundation expert, but I know what works for me and what could work for others. I'll repurchase this.
Overall I'd give this foundation a 7.5/10, if you read the reviews on the Boot's site, they're either hit or miss. Swatch it before you buy. But I personally love it.
