It had been a long time ago since I bought a make up product from an actual store, so while I was walking around the city, I went into Clinique and bought their newest foundation. For your information, I was running low on foundation anyways. I swear.
I heard many different opinions about this product, some say it is their best foundation purchase so far, some say it tends to oxidise after a few hours therefore can’t wear it anymore. I wanted to give it a try myself, decide wether I like it or not. In addition I have tried liquid foundation, cream foundation, but never a stick foundation, so why not jump into something new?
To be honest, at first I was very sceptical about how this is going to work out. I didn’ think it would blend out easily, and I wasn’t sure wether to blend it out with my fingers or a brush or a sponge. I ended up using my fingers to work it in my skin, and I was really surprised how well it blended. It blends in way faster than any other foundation and it stays very natural. It basically picks up the skins texture, and it is impossible to see wether I have any product on my face or not. I couldn’t believe it. I still can’t.
It has a coverage from light to medium, depends if you put on one or two coats. It can be built up very smoothly, since even the second coat isn’t heavy and stays natural on the skin. I love how my freckles are still seen under the second coat but conceals all my blemishes and under eye discoloration.
It doesn’t sit in any dry patches, and works well with oilier skin types as well. Before I brush on this foundation, I used a mosturiser, then a few drops of facial oil from Avon (you can read about it in my older post) to make it more glowy and dewy. I am not a big fan of using powders, but even putting some on wasn’t visible. It really is amazing how well it keeps my skin’s texture even when other products had been used on top of it.
This has definetely been one of my favourite purchases so far. I love it to bits, and I know I am going to buy their contour sticks and highlighters too to give them a try and hopefully adore those too. I really recommend this for any skin type and those who like a light weight foundation. It is perfect for summer or when you are late and have to apply something quickly to your face.
