Revisiting An Old Brand♥

Do you ever buy makeup from a specific brand and feel as though you have been transported back many years and feel nostalgic? That was exactly how I felt when I found myself browsing at the Miss Sporty stand in Superdrug the other week, and before I knew it, I was picking up products left, right and centre, intrigued to what they had to offer. There was a deal on, 3 products for £5, and I picked up their So Matte Perfect Stay Foundation, and I couldn't wait to see how well it worked - it had been a while since I last put a foundation to the test!

I went for the lightest shade (Ivory, 01) and I did notice that there was not many shades available (only 4!), and this could be a slight inconvenience if you have a darker skin tone. The packaging is nothing too exciting, it's a plastic bottle with pink writing, but it comes with a pump - shout out to you, Miss Sporty! In all honesty, I wasn't expecting anything overly fancy as it didn't cost me much at all. I have used this foundation numerous times now and the cap hasn't ended up covered in makeup either.

In all honesty, I didn't even know if this was a low/medium or medium/high coverage, I bought it on a whim! It turns out that it has a low, natural coverage that is easily buildable to deliver a higher coverage, without clogging your pores. It blends out effortlessly and if more layers are required, it doesn't appear to look cakey at all. The finish doesn't look dewy which is expected as it's a matte finish, and feels light on the skin - it doesn't feel as though you're wearing any foundation. I do find that I need extra concealer under my eyes and down the bridge of my nose for more coverage, but apart from that, the coverage is definitely to my liking - it gives extra coverage on any blemishes or imperfections, but freckles are still visible. It claims to last up to 14 hours, and although I've never worn it for that long, I will state that it lasts for a good 6 hours at least. It's enriched with vitamins A,C and E so it's good for the skin.

For £3.50, I have been pleasantly surprised by how good the foundation is. It's one of the most inexpensive foundation I own, and it's definitely taken me by surprise. After I finish it (and a good majority of my other foundations), I will be repurchasing!

Have you ever tried this foundation?

  2. I haven't tried this before but it sounds like you got a great steal this foundation. The packaging reminds me of Rimmel Foundation.
