So far, I love No7 Foundation from boots, medium. (http://www.boots.com/brandtreatment/product_details_brand_treatment.jsp?productid=1057 146&classificationid=1031587) At first, I was a little hesitant but it really does match up the tone of my skin, with or without a heavy summer tan, it works well.

It gives a really nice sheerness to the skin instead of coverring it up, blending well. Thats what I'm looking out for.

Could anyone help me out with any other brand names that do a good job of it? Websites I can look at on the product(s)? ...Maybe something that works out less in price... :dunno:

Thanks :blush:

hmm your in England right? Rimmel is a English brand have you tried any of their products with any sucess? I've heard they have some pretty good foundations in your range.

i'd check out the superblendables--Loreal and Covergirl types OR try a sheer powder with a BRUSH! technique makes the difference! :)

I use the loreal true match powder with a brush.

Thanks for that!

Has anyone tried the Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse? (http://www.maybelline.co.uk/whats_new/l190l400.htm)

It *looks* like it would be a sheer foundation....not sure. And is that all there is in shades? Does it blend in well?

Hi Alma......I like the Dream Matte Mouse, it is light and fluffy but I don't think it's as sheer as the L'oreal super-blendable powder. It does blend well. Did you check out the other thread about the Blendables?

when i want a light natural look- the liquid, water based foundations from max-factor, loreal, and mabeline(sp) are good- and they last all day- and its just enough coverage to even skin tone and people don't even think i'm wearing makeup when i use it

and i put a moistorizer on before i put on the foundation and it blends well

Clinique's Gentle light (http://www.clinique.com/templates/products/sp_shaded.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY4900&PRODUCT_ID=PROD604) is not bad at all.

ETA... I didnt read your entire post and saw that you wanted something cheaper.... My bad.... I tried the maybelline mouse and didnt like it at all.... It left a film on my face...
