Review: Boots No 7 Lifting and Firming Foundation
Despite being a "lifting and firming" foundation I wouldn't say I noticed much of either, but I did find a very nice foundation that worked wonderfully for my skin. Foundations geared to old ladies tend to work very well for those with dry skin (me). The texture is very smooth, it applies like a dream and gives medium-full coverage with a satin finish (neither matte or dewy). Those with oily/combo skin beware, I like to powder this to control how shiny it gets throughout the day so I am not certain how it would fair on oily skin.
Compared to Chanel Pro Lumiere, which I think is very similar to this, Boots No 7 Lifting and Firming is less dewy, gives better coverage and is less of an oil slick at the end of the day. I have heard it's a dupe for Chanel Lift Lumiere, but I haven't tried that one, so I cannot comment. Lifting and Firming is a fantastic foundation, and not only does it beat all drugstore foundations that I've used, but it's up there with my all-time high-end favourites.
Would I recommend this product? A hundred times over, yes! If you have dry skin you will surely love this foundation, if you can manage to find it.
