SEVENTEEN On the Spot Foundation
Good Budget Foundation
Admittedly foundation-wise I normally use Estee Lauder double wear. But when I received this product I was optimistic and happy to give it a go. I have suffered from acne for several years now & my skin has its good and bad days - but I always wear a little foundation to counter redness and those annoying lumps and bumps! As well as this my skin constantly fluctuates between very oily and very dry (it's a bit of a nightmare to be honest) so a good coverage, oil free yet buildable foundation is necessary.
I have to say that for the price this foundation is great value. It has a pump dispenser which is brilliant as it means that loads of product isn't wasted upon application. You only end up using a small amount - a little goes a relatively long way, so it should last quite a while.
Coverage-wise - I was pleasantly surprised. It was buildabe so that It did cover my redness but my light scars were still visible so I do think that this foundation will be best suited to people with relatively good skin - also I did find that it made more visible some of my dry areas and Its staying power on my oily t-zone was limited to a few of hours. But it didn't feel heavy or cakey on my skin whatsoever.
Overall I would recommend this product If you are looking for a decent foundation on a tight budget. Although I will be sticking with my usual foundation, I would say to anyone who is blessed with relatively good skin who wants buildable coverage then give this foundation a try!

17 On the spot foundation
This product was unfortunately too dark for my skintone, however a family member tried this and found it to be very good. It was lightweight, smooth and silky when applied on the skin. The tube packaging is secure and distributes an ideal amount.

On the spot foundation
I have never used a SEVENTEEN foundation before so I was excited to see if I was missing out on anything. I usually use L'Oreal foundation as it is good for pale skin. This foundation is not as good as matching to paler skin colours but makes up for it in coverage. I was not expecting the heavy full coverage it offers at the price given, which means good value for money. It gives a full face without looking too 'cakey' however can feel too much if you were going to wear it daily like I do. This would be more suited for nights out.
I did not notice a difference in my skin by using this product which I am disappointed about as that is the main feature of it. It did smell great and also didn't feel like my skin was suffering from wearing but it did not help with spots.
The packaging is good but I do not understand why the pump needs to be the size of the bottle, this is quite unnecessary.
I would recommend as it is one of the best foundations I have used for coverage.
