One thing I love to try out is different foundations, you may have spotted this in my beauty haul I done recently, linked here This was one of the main reasons I went in to Boots, to try this foundation out. I've heard such great reviews about cushion foundations and had high hopes. 

The packaging is alright, a bit cheap and plastic but then it's just drugstore so can't judge too much by that but then there are also some flaws with the packaging. My shade is 01 but I peeled this off to be able to open it and it doesn't have the shade written on the back, on the boots website it gives shade names and not a number. It also states on the packaging it's an SPF29 but on the website it states SPF 25, hmm? I know that doesn't matter in the big scheme of things I'm just a stickler for detail. 

On to the product, it claims to be a Dewy Glow Foundation and it most definitely is, this is so comfortable to wear and I recommend using your own brush or beauty blender as the face pad included isn't any good at all. It's quite a low coverage so great for the summer for a really light glowy look. Due to it's high SPF this is also great for the summer but not the best if you are doing anything photography related, i.e. I wouldn't wear this to a wedding. 

I found this started to slide around my face towards the end of the day but then with it being a dewy foundation you should kind of expect that. I have normal to dehydrated skin so fine for my skin type or even dry skin this would be really nice. I'd say it lasted for about a good 5-6 hours on me before I would need to set again with some powder. 

You can buy this for £14.99 at Boots, it comes in 7 different shades, all fairly light - medium shades nothing for darker skin tones which is a bit of a shame. You get 14.6g of product which is fairly decent for a product like this. 

Let me know if you have tried this out in the comments below?
