Seventeen Stay Time 25hr Foundation REVIEW

Since I've started on my journey to going cruelty free with my makeup and skincare, I've been on the hunt for a new foundation. Foundation is hard to buy though, especially when you're a pasty pale princess, like moi. It's even harder to buy when you've got less options. Luckily, I've been getting recommendations off friends, and this time around I've opted to try my dearest Aoife's recommendation: Seventeen Stay Time 25hr Foundation.

Stay Time in Porcelain
This foundation retails for 9.00 in Boots, and I picked up the palest shade they had, which is Porcelain. It's always the same routine for me, just get the palest shade and pray it's actually pale.

I've been wearing it for a couple of weeks now, and I have some thoughts.

First of all, it's actually pale, and that's a huge point in its favor. I blend it down my neck and it looks lovely. The coverage is full, but not heavy, which I find can go along with other full coverage foundations. It applies well with either a beauty blender, or a flat top foundation brush, and dries down to a demi-matte finish. I powder lightly with a translucent powder, which mattifies it a little more without altering the coverage.

I find it lasts quite well, without getting too shiny. It doesn't seem to break down on any trouble spots, either! As for the 25 Hour thing? I cannot confirm, but it does wear well for a solid ten hours or more. I love it! Not bad considering you get change out of a tenner!!

All in all, I am very impressed with this foundation, and I'm going to repurchase this til I find something better, which could take a long while!!

Have you tried this foundation?
