[Review] W7 Photoshoot Foundation


Time for another review: one of my favourite foundations~
   






First of: I have quite fair skin and looking for an affordable and light drugstore foundation in Germany is almost like going on an Odysee. I was really close to giving up, especially because I live on a quite tight budget and can't afford pricier foundation, the only ones that seem to offer fairer shades here. Then I found the W7 Photoshoot Foundation online and thought "why not give it a shot", especially since it was only around 4 Euro.



This says W7: The New Photo Shoot Foundation, leaves you with a flawless finish! Not only budge proof, but lasts upto 16hours. Create your look with W7 Cosmetics. Balanced shine with the oil free formula. Won't transfer onto clothes.


 
 
 Swatches:

 The swatches look slightly dark but oddly it fits my skintone. They also seem to have a yellow undertone, which is perfect for my skin (another problem in Germany for me: a lot of foundations have a pink undertone).

Effects: The foundation has a dewy finish and is quite lightweight. Even on those hot days it doesn't feel like suffocating my skin (I still sweat like crazy but I do that no matter what foundation I use or even if I don't use any at all....Yay for having a sweaty face -.-). It can't completely cover pimples on its' own but I still like the amount of coverage it gives. It doesn't really last 16h (honestly, I never believe that kind of stuff anyways), especially now in summer when I constantly wipe the sweat of my face (and the foundation and whole make-up with it) but it's enough for my needs. I really dislike the opening though...you have to pour it out and it gets stuck most of the time...kinda annoying. A pumper would have been better.
There's also a smell to the foundation but it doesn't personally bother me too much. SPF is missing.

Repurchase: Especially considering the price I really like the foundation and will definitely repurchase it.



Pros: fair shades available, lightweight, cheap

Cons: doesn't last 16h, no pumper, no SPF



Overall: 4/5
