I really like No7’s Airbrush Away primer so I had lots of good vibes around the brand new No7 Airbrush Away Foundation. And it’s in one of those dropper bottles which, let’s face it, is so ‘hot right now’!! Hard not to be interested!!

And I really do like a bit of No7 – they made the first ever concealer I repurchased, again and again, back in the day when concealer was literally the only makeup product I cared about! Anyway…

No7 Airbrush Away Foundation Ingredients

Myristyl trisiloxane , Dimethicone, Ethyl trisiloxane, Dimethicone / vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, PEG 10 Dimethicone, Isododecane, Silica, Phenyl trimethicone, Talc, Stearylkonium hectorite, Alcohol denat., Laureth-4, Mica, Caprylic / capric triglyceride, Tocopherol, Dicalcium phosphate, Rubus Idaeus leaf cell culture, Aqua (Water), [+/ – (May contain) CI 77891 (Titanium dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron oxides), CI 77492 (Iron oxides), CI 77499 (Iron oxides)].

Now as you may have noticed, this foundation contains silicone and as a result it literally slides and glides over the skin and blending is very easy. Once blended the silicone-y feel seems to vanish and it leaves a velvet skin finish that is light and comfortable to wear. If you are anti-silicone, you won’t enjoy application. I’m not so it was fine for me. It’s easy to work with, melts into the skin and offers buildable coverage that doesn’t get cakey even if you layer it up.

It gives the skin a lovely even finish without looking like there’s lots of makeup going on. The one thing I would say is that is wasn’t overly long lasting. I used it without primer and it started to wear away after about 5 hours. I have been using the Too Faced Born This Way foundation a lot recently and that one is super long lasting so it has a lot to live up to! Also that is a creamier, heavier foundation so you’d expect it to last longer. No7 recommend using the Airbrush Away primer first for ultimate flawlessness and longer wear.

I think the No7 Airbrush Away Foundation is a great foundation for the price if you are looking for something light and invisible. It is £16.50 for 30ml and is out now. Find it to order online HERE.
