A couple of weeks ago I made mention the new foundation offering from Clinique on the blog- the Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer and I promised to do a full review…so here it is!
I have been using the foundation for about 3 weeks now and it gets a thumbs up from me!
As described by the brand, the formulation is lightweight, yet moisturising. Upon application it did feel a little oily, but it dried to give a smooth, dewy finish – with a decent coverage – the perfect combination!
The product is also described as not to clog one’s pores. I put this claim to the test, wearing it a day after I had my first Jessner face peel at Sk:n Clinics in Holborn (as mentioned in this post, more about my experience coming soon!), as I was advised by the skin specialist to wear foundation that would not clog the pores. My skin didn’t react at all and I was very impressed by this.
The new foundation is available in 21 shades and the unique doe foot applicator can be used to spot-conceal. I really like the applicator – it is perfect to be able to touch up and refresh one’s make up during the day. You can really target the areas that you would like to apply the base to, thus there is less wastage and less mess too!
The weighty glass bottle is sturdy, but it will be interesting to see how easy it will be to get to the foundation when it nears the end…
The shade that I have been wearing is Golden (shade 24), which is a good match for my skin tone. There is one shade darker then this in the range, which is good news for us #brownbeauties!
The brand has supported the launch with a fun and flirty campaign which showcases the doe stick applicator in all of its glory!
The brand has done well to demonstrate that there are shades suitable for all in both print and digital communications.
