Foundation review! - No7 Beautifully Matte

Hello ma'lovelys, hope we are all well on this fine day. Its been a while since I did a foundation review, so I thought I'd share with you the one I have been constantly using recently. 
I first got this foundation over a year ago now, when a lovely lady from the No7 counter matched me up with the correct shade of foundation for my skin tone. The lady used the newly used technology matched made device, which takes 27 photographs of your skin on each side of your face and matches them correctly to find you perfect shade of foundation.
After being matched using the device I found out that I was the fairest shade in the range '43Calico' (DAMN you pale skin). Now that I had found my perfect shade, it was the tough decision on what foundation to go for. I knew that I wanted a liquid foundation which gave me the option of 8 different foundations to chose from:
No7 Protect & Perfect Foundation
No7 Restore & Renew Foundation
No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation
No7 Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation
No7 Essentially Natural Foundation
No7 Instant Radiance Foundation
No7 Intelligent Colour Foundation
No7 Lift & Luminate Foundation
A full coverage foundation was definitely on the cards as well, so the next step was to try some of them out.
In the end I chose the No7 Beautifully Matte foundation. This foundation is long lasting and has full coverage. It leaves a lovely matte finish which I love, and glides smoothly onto the skin.

I used the Real Techniques Buffing Brush to blend the foundation into my skin.

Hope you all liked this review,
