My complexion was clearing up so well, and then thanks to period week, all the progress my acne had made went up in flames. It's fine, though, because I found a new base makeup product that helps cover up the damage! This foundation just won a 2016 Spring Beauty O-ward from O The Oprah Magazine, and best of all, it's affordable! Check out the No 7 Stay Perfect Foundation in action in my new video below.

The No7 Stay Perfect Foundation in Warm Beige is an excellent color match for me. I am a touch darker than my usual light-medium coloring due to retinol usage, but I feel that I could use it in the winter at my palest as well. I am impressed by the long-wearing formula, and it is unlike any other pharmacy formula I have tried because it doesn't sit in my pores and did not irritate my existing acne or cause new break outs! No odor or scent, truly fragrance free.
It is $15.99 which makes it an ideal foundation for daily use. I usually only wear foundation when I'm filming or experimenting with a new formula, but Stay Perfect is something I could wear every day because of the satiny finish that mimics real skin. It doesn't accentuate dry patches (again, from the retinols), and it blurs imperfections without feeling greasy or looking like a flat overdone mask. Give it a try!
