    Haha, I definitely don't think it's a placebo, it's just a much higher quality I think!
    But there are definitely some rubbish expensive foundations e.g. Nars.

    I just feel like it's so hard to colour match with cheap foundations, they are either pink or orange! and they last me about 30 mins before I'm patchy!
    Isn't Nars good? I was thinking of buying one of their foundations as so many youtube gurus rave about them, now I'm not so sure :confused:

    I really want to try makeup forever hd foundation - but i have no idea if you can get it in the UK

    Even though it's drugstore, Rimmel Match Perfection is my old time favourite, especially in summer as it is light coverage, but buildable! Must have repurchased at least five times...

    I too use Rimmel's match perfection for everyday. I find that it lasts a bit longer than my YSL Touch Eclat foundation, I prefer how the YSL foundation looks though, slightly more dewy.

    I have the Nars Sheer Glow and I absolutely love it, feels so light on my face and isn't at all greasy.

    People rave about Nars Sheer Glow. My twin has it, I think it applies really easily, provides a good coverage but isn't thick on.

    Do you find the Double Wear and MAC foundation pale enough for you? I use Double Wear in Shell and Studio Fix in NW10 but both give me orange lines, even if I blend it really well with a sponge or foundation brush...

    I use revlon colour stay atm (dry/combination skin version) and I literally can't fault it, the colour really matches my skin and it is great coverage!

    I don't 'paint' my face. I use it to even out my skin tone.

    Really. I think Nars is pretty good. I use the Sheer Glow foundation and I'm quite impressed with it, although I know some people who don't like it because they think the colour ranges are limited.

    I use Nars on special occasions and Loreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint foundation. The latter is really light and isn't heavy coverage, but it's great for an ordinary day out.

    No7's foundation match for my skin was really accurate but I'm looking for a replacement because it feels too thick on my face. Problem is I'm broke as hell. The L'oreal Lumi Magique foundation looks really good, but I think I got the wrong shade, so I can't judge. I'm currently using Sephora CC cream which is a dream (rhyme not intended).

    Anyone know what colour No7 foundation in Honey would be in different brands?
