Seventeen – Stay Time Foundation (full coverage)

Seventeen is a Boots brand we have here in the UK. It’s very affordable and very good quality. In this post I will be reviewing the Stay Time Foundation in the shade Natural.

It retails at £6.49 from Boots –>> Seventeen


The bottle is plastic and the lid turns to lock and unlock. I think the bottle being plastic might put people off but for me personally it’s really light to travel in your make up bag. Some might say it looks cheap. :o

What do I like about this foundation? is it worth buying?

Its very full coverage and a little bit goes a long way. I am a huge fan of full coverage foundations and coming across a highstreet/drugstore one is some what difficult. Looking at my before photo you can see my freckles and lots of redness, the after photo you see no redness at all. I could actually get away with wearing no concealer its that good at covering blemishes.

It is worth it 100%!! the only thing I recommend doing is powder your face after applying it because its very tacky on the skin.

Does it last up to 25 hours?

Well I have never worn a foundation for that length of time. I did though wear it in the hottest weather we have had in the UK for a long time. It lasted really well for me in the extreme heat, I did start to notice on some areas of my face that it had slightly oxidized turning parts orange but honestly for me it was so unnoticeable. Maybe that’s just my normal sweaty T zone I get? I am really happy with how well it stayed on.  I even took a nap and when I woke up it was still perfectly fine.

Is it Matte?

I’d say its semi-matte.

Thank you for reading!
