Seventeen: Matte Miracle Foundation review. 

I always love a new makeup product and testing out new makeup brands. Now I'm not sure whether this is new to everyone else but new to me. I've always stuck to foundation from the likes of Maybelline, but this time I needed something of good value and fairly price and for £5.99 I thought I'd try seventeen. 
Now, my review is slightly mixed...I've not come to a definite conclusion as to whether I like this foundation or not? 
Firstly, I'll point out the PRO's...I'll admit I'm convinced that the match of the foundation to my skin tone is correct, the shade being natural, does seems very much natural to me. A medium coverage makes me feel comfortable that this foundation covers all my spots and blemishes. Oh, and so far lasts far longer than any foundation I've used in forever. I break one of the cardinal rules of touching my face throughout the day and even with me doing that, their still seems to be foundation on my face afterwards. 
But the CON's it create a weird formation after applying...going dark and patchy in areas (expecially any creases, like my smile lines) which means I either have to re-apply more or stand for agessssss buffing into my skin, nothing something I really want to do when I purchased this as my quick go-to foundation. And the shine control, I haven't seen much differences from that, but maybe that is because of my constant face touching, oops! 

I let this post sit for a few days while I continued to use this foundation, looking for more reasons in this post and a better understand of my pros and cons and whether I actually like this product or not. I've only owned this for 2 weeks now and even with it's few problems I'll fall in love with this by the time the bottle finishes...or I won't manage to finish it and I'll have purchased a new one in a few weeks time.

  3. I do love the colour match but the thought of it needing ALL that extra buffing and lack of shine control really puts me off!

  4. I think it looks like a great budget one but something that I would have to wear a lot of powder over, and my pores don't like that ;) Thanks for an honest review xxx

  5. This is a product that I'm not sure whether to pick up or not, it's so budget friendly. However, as someone who needs shine control and for their foundation to last because I also am forever touching my face this doesn't sound like it would cut my long days.. Such a shame!

  8. I think out of all the foundations I used it a while the colour and coverage is perfect for me...but the buffing etc, I've actually stopped using the product now!

  11. After trying it for a few more days, I've actually got rid of this foundation...my makeup began to become patchy and looked pretty horrible on my skin. I'm now on the hunt for a better budget product!

    It's a shame about the reapplying/buffing problem, seems as though it would be very good on a budget though! xx
