Today's post is, unfortunately, a bit of a negative one I'm afraid. Sorry SEVENTEEN.
I'd read numerous reviews saying that SEVENTEEN on the spot foundation was great, it had amazing coverage, the colour was a perfect match and it did great things for the skin. I completely disagree, sorry.
First let's talk about application. After applying my primer, as always, I applied 3 pumps of this foundation all over my face using my fingers, and blended in. The application was unbelievably sheer, not full coverage like it claims. As I worked it into my skin, it began to roll up and remove my primer so I was left with what looked like dead dry skin all over my face. I thought it was my primer being a pain so I washed my face and started again with no primer or moisturiser. It seemed to apply smoother and blend a little better but again the coverage was sheer.
I left it to settle into my skin whilst I applied my concealer and filled in my brows, when I looked into the mirror to check the foundation is had for some reason turned an orange shade.
I bought Soft Ivory which is the lightest shade and the colour match seemed great when I first applied it, but once blended and settled into my skin turned orange. I have no idea why it changed colour so quickly! I have known some foundations to oxidise throughout the day as I have oily skin, but never that fast.
I've tried this a few times now and I've had the same problem each and every time - Sheer coverage, patchy and turns a shade of orange. I think I'm more disappointed because after reading great reviews I had such high hopes.
I don't want this to sound like I'm bashing the company because on a whole I think SEVENTEEN are great. Their mirror shine lipstick in Beehive is one of my favourite lipsticks, and their miracle matte pressed powder is my holy grail powder. I just didn't get along with this foundation at all.
I do love the packaging though!
