17 Miracle Matte Foundation doesn't blend well at all - it dries too quickly so don't even think about trying to build it up because you'll just be pulling it right back off again and having clumpy bits which you can see above.. I tried it first off by using moisturiser, primer then foundation (like I normally do).. awful. I tried it without moisturiser and primer, still awful. I also tried to do it really quickly before it dried which wasn't too bad.. until I tried to set it with powder.. yep, you guessed it! - It pulled it all off again and looked like this:
|Me sulking, haha.|
Unfortunately I can't comment on the fact that it claims to control shine for 16 hours because I couldn't have left the house with it on - I was honestly unable to get it to look even just okay but I haven't given up yet, I don't want it to go to waste so if anybody has any suggestions for me to try, do let me know!! It has a really thick consistency yet the coverage was pretty shocking, even on the bits that did apply alright.
Overall I was thoroughly disappointed in this product and definitely wouldn't recommend it or repurchase it. I had high hopes because I've used the 17 Miracle Matte Pressed Powder for months now and love it. I also really like their nail polish.. It hasn't put me off their products but I will do my research next time I think, especially before purchasing another foundation or a mascara or something.
Have you tried any 17 products? If so how have you got on with them? xxx
