Clinique Foundation | Review

A couple of weeks back my skin started to go a bit dry and itchy. I don’t know what caused it to do this, maybe it was the change of the seasons or just my hormones playing around with my skin. There were many things that could have caused it, one of them being my foundation. I’d had it for quite a while and so decided it time to purchase a new one.

After debating whether or not to get a cheapish one or go all out, I thought it was best for my skin to get something allergy tested and dermatologist developed. Therefore, it had to be Clinique.

I went to the counter and asked if they could do a colour match. We went through quite a lot of different foundations. Some oily, some matt, some dewy until we found the perfect one for my skin. I ended up going for the ‘Even Better Makeup, SPF 15, evens and corrects’ in the colour Cream Chamois 04. I’ve been using it for the past three weeks, and it has to be the best decision I have made with makeup in a long time. It says that it evens and corrects and it really does! My chin has been slightly spotty for sometime, but since using this it’s the best my skin has been in forever.

It’s a medium coverage but saying this, it tends to cover my blemishes really well and gives an airbrushed finish if you use a makeup brush. It has a really nice consistency with a smooth creamy kind of texture and feels so light on your face.

It might be a little bit pricey, but it is so worth it and I will definitely be buying this again.

If you’d like to check this product out click here, I absolutely adore Clinique and would really recommend this foundation.

Holy Grail | Challenge

1) Holy Grail foundation? –

Maybelline dream matte mousse SPF 15, I absolutely swear by this stuff at the moment. The colour I have is: Sand. It seems to go on quite thinly but for day to day use it’s perfect.

2) Which eyeshadow or palette do you always go back to? –

Gold Look, Next eye palette .  It has pretty much every natural colour you could ever want in there, with a few glittery ones for going out. It’s ace.

3) Which of these is your staple; Blusher or Bronzer? Which one? – 

Blusher – Natural Collection, Rosey Cheeks. To be honest I haven’t really tried that many blushers. It was my sister who recommended this to me and I haven’t looked back since.

Bronzer – Collection, Bronze Glow Matt in the colour terracotta. It’s cheap and very high Street, I know, but it does the trick and looks great, so I really can’t complain.

4) Gloss or Lipstick? Which one do you always turn to? –

Gloss – Clinique long last glosswear SPF15. I wear this every day. I suffer a lot with chapped lips, but using this lip gloss seems to prevent them from getting chapped and so I never leave the house without it on.

5) You’re having a bad skin day, which product do you instantly reach for? –

Natural Collection – colour foundation again in the colour Sand. This is a little bit thicker than the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse and the coverage is a lot better. I very rarely wear this on a day to day basis, but when it’s that time of the month and my skin starts breaking out, I do have to delve deep inside my make-up back and whack on some of this.

6) You want sexy lashes today; which mascara can you always rely on? –

Clinique high impact mascara. It never lets you down and always makes your lashes look fuller.

7) Which brand of brushes are your favourite? –

EcoTools – these brushes are great. Not only are they environmentally friendly, they are also really soft! I didn’t realise the importance of getting the right brush until I purchased these, and they make such a difference to your make-up. Giving you a flawless finish.

8) Which is your everyday perfume/body spray? –

I’ve never really been into body spray. My family have allergies and so I’ve always used scentless deodorants.

9) Which is your signature makeup look? –

I normally go for a thin line of black eyeliner with a brown smokey eye and rosey cheeks.

10) Finally, which cosmetics brand overall is your most collected? –

You can probably tell after these answers that I love natural collection, but have also hoarded some Clinique products along the way.

If I could afford it, I’d love to try out more Clinique products as they’re just so lovely.
