The product I am reviewing is one of SEVENTEEN's new foundation's, the Stay Time. I heard about this product in December some time courtesy of Leanne Woodfull's (thunderandthreads) twitter. I am very pale, as you know from my outfit posts, and I am always on the hunt for a good pale foundation that will actually match me, at a cheaper price. I also have very oily skin, so long lasting foundations are a must for me. So obviously, my interest was peaked about this. I instantly went and bought the product in the shade 'Porcelain' and fell in love!
The product description on the packaging is;
Its time.Time that your make up had staying power! This full coverage foundation gives a flawless smooth skin finish. That lasts. And lasts. Foundation that stays put for up to 25 hours. Its time. Stay Time.
I think it is best to review this product on three areas: shade, staying power and finish.
This colour is awesome for us pale girls, although I may add it is a little yellow, so blending is essential. The range of shades that I saw on the Boots website were as follows; porcelain, soft ivory, natural, biscuit, fair and honey. The range is aimed at pale skinned ladies (and men!). I am considering trying the fair shade next time, as it seems a bit pinker than porcelain.
I also found that the product lasted a long long time on me. I wore this to an all day event and had it on from 7 am to about 6 pm and it was still perfect! I was so impressed with this, no other foundation has ever lasted that well on my skin. I don't know if it "stays put for up to 25 hours" as they claim, but it does last a long time.
I don't wear foundation on a daily basis, but when I do I like it to be flawless but not cakey. The product has great coverage, it definitely is full coverage, and sits really nicely on the skin. I found that doing it in light layers is much better, as just throwing on such a heavy coverage will definitely look cakey and crease very quickly. I used an EcoTools brush designed for BB or CC creams and I find that is really helps to distribute the product and stop it from being so thick on the skin.
Overall this product really impressed me. At this price of €8.19 (Boots website) it is very affordable but great quality. I would definitely recommend the range to any oily/pale girls out there on the hunt for a cheaper alternative foundation.
