Review: 17 Adapt-itude Adapting Skin Match Foundation SPF15

Available in 4 skin-tone adapting shades, Extra Fair, Fair, Medium, Medium/Dark this is 17's answer to a light-weight summer foundation, and it is! You can find it at Boots for £6.29.

17 Say:
You’ve met your match with our no fuss skin adapting foundation. Blends seamlessly for an even skin tone and a natural, flawless finish. Blend-able, weightless coverage, with a flawless finish and SPF 15.

Swatch of Medium
I found this to be very similar to a tinted moisturiser but with more coverage, it feels very light when applied and is simple and easy to apply. I use a stippling brush or a foundation brush and tend to set with powder. It lasts for a full day (around 8hrs) without slipping/sliding/smudging. I feel it is the perfect drugstore foundation for summer, although there is some slipping in incredibly hot weather - as experienced today. It is generally transfer-proof but not as highly so as some more expensive foundations.

In terms of value for the 30ml of product at £6.29 and the quality of the foundation itself, I certainly don't think it's a bad deal at all. It is a pretty much perfect summer foundation. The nozzle on the tube is easy to work with and apply product without any waste. Using the 17 Photo Flawless Primer ensured that this stayed on more comfortably on my skin. As for the flawless finish promised this is achieved, and the SPF15 is always a welcome addition!

  1. This is fab, especially seeing that I am crap at picking shades which are good for my skin! xxx

  2. Looks like a great product! I'll have to see if my target has it :)

  3. Hi Amy! I really like face makeup with a few shades because I suck at picking shades too!

    It's really good for summer I think Paige, but everything's been sliding off my face recently so I don't bother with makeup for the minute lol!
