Today I am going to talk about a new foundation I have been using lately - the Even Better foundation by Clinique.
I purchased this with the help of my MyerOne rewards card and had a lovely Clinique sales assistant match the foundation shade. Unfortunately I have come the realise that the lighting in Myer is very misleading and what looked like the perfect shade in the shop does not look like that in natural light. The shade I purchased has pink undertones and does not match my skin which has yellow undertones. One good thing that came about from this is that I learnt my lesson to always check the foundation shade outside in the natural light before purchasing and that the sales assistant may not always know what she's talking about so don't let her bully you into buying products.
Anyways, besides the poor choice of colour thanks to the shop assistant, this foundation is actually pretty good. It comes in a cute 30 ml plastic bottle which is easy to carry with you on the go.
The foundation gives a medium to full coverage and is buildable as well. This product will cover any uneven skin tone or any blemishes and make your skin appear dewy and flawless. It also contains SPF15+ which is a great bonus and something I look for in my skin care products.
I am not used to wearing full covearge foundation so this product feels a bit heavy on my skin although it does a good job in lasting an entire day without melting (I always set it with powder). Clinique claims that long term use of this product helps reduce pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Personally I haven't noticed any of these benefits after using almost an entire bottle of this product.
This little guy retails at $50 for a 30ml bottle so it is on the expensive side but if you are after a foundation for oily or combination skin then this one is a good choice. As I said I feel that it is a bit too heavy for me so I won't be repurchasing any time soon.
I'm looking for recommendations for a full coverage foundation that doesn't feel heavy, feel free to leave a comment letting me know which one I should try next.
