Foundation Review: Miss Sporty

Miss Sporty So Matte Perfect Stay Foundation - Medium

Miss sporty is a make-up brand that's only sold in superdrug stores.Everything in the range is under £3.00 & good if you're looking for a bargain cosmetics. There are currently 3 foundations in this range
- Light energy foundation
- So clear foundation
- So matte foundation (The one i'm reviewing)

Ok so to start, this product comes in a pretty plain tube in a skin-like pearly colour with a white screw on lid, it certainly doesn't stand out. The shades are quite limited and only it only comes in Light, Medium and Dark.

On the front it has the Miss Sporty logo and it says that it is - So Matte perfect stay, 8hr, Matte
finish, shine control with smoothing minerals. That it is dermatologically tested and is for all skin types.It also has a little round sticker telling me that it is no.02 Medium.
On the back it says So Matte perfect stay
foundation for all day natural matte finish- Controls oil shine, skin looks matte and natural all day long- Evens out skin tone perfectly and blends away fine lines and skin imperfections leaving comfortable coverage.- Enriched with emollients and minerals that help prevent skin from irritation.- Oil free formula that allows skin to breatheSmooth, flawless and perfectly matte throughout the day. Dermatologically testedAll skin typesIt then has a list of all the ingredients - 30ml

Coverage: I find this foundation pretty perfect for me, I'm not spotty but when I do break out it covers my spots pretty well, it also leaves my skin
looking a bit more evenly-toned. I think its easy enough to blend as well.
Now I found that it does last long enough, maybe not always the 8 hours it claims depending on the climate etc but it does a pretty good job of keeping a great coverage without having to touch it up at all.

Yes! I would definitely recommend this foundation, no id say it isn't as good as some more expensive ones, but hey some of us can't afford them and I think for £2.99 this is a pretty damn good substitute.

Hope you've enjoyed this review & I hope it helps!

Thank you all so much

Foundation Review: NYC

Foundation Review: Smooth Skin Liquid Foundation (oil free) - Natural Buff

I used to search high & low for a good foundation that would not cause my combination/sensitive skin to break-out. I found that just because a product says it won't clog pores doesn't mean it won't clog mine!
I spotted NYC Smooth Skin Liquid Makeup at Superdrug. After seeing the inexpensive price tag of £3.99 (and the fact that it's oil free) I decided I was willing to try it and give it to my sister it if I hated it.
That was about 2 weeks ago, and I haven't looked back. This stuff is fantastic!
It offers excellent coverage, the consistency is somewhat like ketchup, as well a being very, very blendable. It does not "set" right away like some other foundations, so blendability is exceptional. Not once has this caused a breakout, AND it stays on all day. It also washes off very easily.
Most of the time, I need light to medium coverage from a foundation. That's another selling point for me with this makeup. When I need a little more coverage than usual, this stuff doesn't have the tendency to cake like other foundations I've tried. Another plus for me is that..I hate concealers. They tend to be cakey and oily. So I use this product as a concealer, too!
After application, if I have a blemish or any other skin imperfection that I want to cover, I use either a cotton-wool bud to apply a little extra product or my concealer brush. I dip the cotton-wool bud/concealer brush very lightly into the cap where some of the product resides, due to the bottle being shaken before opening, and get a very small amount of foundation on it. I then lightly dab the swab on a tissue to remove excess as it takes very little to work, then dab onto the skin imperfection & Voila! Imperfection gone. (I have tried this trick using other foundations, and it doesn't work if the foundation is runny.)
If you tend to have oily skin, It's better if you rarely use powder to set the foundation except on your t-zone. It doesn't mattify the skin, & it leaves more of a healthy glow. This foundation is mainly available at Superdrug & is a product in many stores around the world. (It's also readily available online.)
The company claims this product is: Fragrance-free Oil-Free formula absorbs shine naturally, without clogging pores Perfect for all skin types I would agree with the claims without reservation.
This foundation is available in Natural Buff, Sandy Beige, True Beige, Spiced Beige, and Natural Tan. You can view this and other New York Color products at

This foundation is excellent & I highly reccommend it!
