W7 Photo Shoot 16 Hour Foundation BuffAfter seeing very good reviews of W7's photo shoot foundation on beauty blogs I thought I'd give it a go since I'm always on the look out for new foundations. I've even begun to hoarder them lately. I got it in the shade Buff which is the lightest they have. There are only five shades available ranging from Buff to Natural Tan which I believe is the darkest shade available. There is no SPF. Photo Shoot Foundation apparently will give us a flawless even finish that lasts up to 16 hours. Before I cover this I will talk about the packaging.
It doesn't really match my skin tone, it's quite dark with an orange tone to it, when applied to my face so I couldn't wear it on it's own. After taking it off I mixed with my Illamasqua Skin Base foundation in shade 001 which is pure white. I tend to mix this with a lot of my foundations to make the texture thicker and to match my skin tone. I didn't have flawless looking skin it said it would give me even mixed with another foundation. Since I've used the Illamasque before with other products I knew it was the W7 foundation that made my skin worse than it was at the time. A day after I used this my skin got more drier and I got a small rash which I get when using certain creams for foundations too harsh for my skin. If you have really sensitive skin please don't try this!
Overall I just think this a mess of a foundation, I wouldn't recommend this at all. Maybe the W7 eye liner pencil I bought is worth a look in but not the foundation. I can't really say if it lasted the 16 hours since I mixed it.
If you want to try it for yourself it retails at £3.50 on www.Amazon.co.uk which also has a lot of W7 products on there for low prices.
