Foundation has to be the most aptly named item of make up. Without a good base for your make up you will end up with disastrous results. It is important to choose your foundation carefully, it is the base that the rest of your make up will be applied to, get this wrong and the whole effect will be ruined. If your foundation doesn't last or it fades then so will your blusher and eye shadow. People make jokes about using a trowel to apply make up but it's not a bad example. If you think of your foundation as the plaster on your walls, would you bother to paint them if the plaster was all cracked and flaking off? I don't think so. Foundation ... Read the complete review

I only bought this because it was heavily reduced in my local Boots store but I am glad I got it! The problem I have with makeup is that my skin is slightly oily so it doesn't tend to stay on for long and just makes my skin feel even oilier at the end of the day. This foundation doesn't do that though. It stays on and it doesn't go at all greasy even after hours. And it even works on dry skin too so it's perfect if you have problems with both (which I do). So it doesn't dry skin out and it doesn't make skin greasy but just leaves it feeling perfectly smooth and healthy. The 17 range is not expensive and having problematic skin I don't tend to ...

When I first started to wear make-up I didnt have a clue! I went with one of my female friends and got her to advise me on a foundation that wa of a fair quality but one that didnt show up too much if I had missed parts... Boots 17 Shine Control Foundation was what I was directed to. I took it home and decided to try it straight away. It went on really easily and was a really good match for my skin colour (I got nicely natural as I have pale skin.) Obviously, If you do put more on it can be obvious that you are wearing it but that goes without saying for almost all foundations. It covers spots fairly well but for any fairly large or red ones, a concealer must be ... Read the complete review

Over the past few years I have tried a good few different foundations and have now settled on this one. 17 is a great brand and this is one of their best products. The foundation comes in a 50ml bottle with a pump action lid allowing precise application onto the sponge or finger depending on how you chose to apply. I have found that sometimes the pump action can clog but with a little cleaning it is easily rectified. It is available in a range of different shades Mine is nearly nude but there is likely to be one that will suit everyone. I have found this to give an even coverage and form a fantastic base for the rest of my make-up. I personally don't ... Read the complete review
