The Quest For The Perfect Foundation Continues...

Hey Girls!

Hope you're all doing great!! Half way through the week! Phew!

With the temperatures dropping and Mr Jack Frost making an appearance, the old face has been taking a kicking! I'd happy been using my No7 intelligent balance foundation on a daily basis when my skin started to get really dry. Mainly around my nose and forehead, and the look of the mousse foundation sticking to the dry ares was NOT a good look. So I needed to find a good alternative quick!

I popped down to Debenhams a fortnight ago and perused the make up department for ageees (my boyfriend will vouch for this!) and eventually I decided on Clinique supermoisture.

Designed to combat very dry to dry combination skin, I was very hopeful this would do the trick. And it did. The formulation is very moisturisting and takes to my skin very well. It also leaves your skin really dewy looking as it contains an extremely subtle hint of glitter. I find that I can wear it all day and does not give me that "caked" appearance on the drier areas of my face.

The only downside I can find to this foundation is the coverage it provides. It has a sheer to moderate coverage, edging closer to sheer. This is fine for a daily basis as I often like a light coverage for work and for through the day, but I find when I am heading out at night time I am mixing it with a higher coverage foundation so I can achieve a more flawless appearance. Not a huge problem for me, although I would not recommend this to you girlies who like your full coverage fix.

What are your thoughts on Clinique foundations, and have any of you guys tried this?

  1. Great review, I'm always trying new foundations, I have combination skin and find it really difficult to find one that gives good coverage, lasts but doesn't cake up. I've never tried any Clinique ones, I'm using Maybelline Superstay 24hr at the moment, which is pretty good xxx

  2. great review, i'd like to try this. also, i'm having my first giveaway that you might be interested in, here's the link if you are:

  3. Clinique breaks me out unfortunately ):
    I have oily skin, but in the fall/winter I get dry patches, it's so annoying! Because I just can't use a moisturizer for dry skin, at night I put emu oil in my dry patches and in the other day it's gone!

  4. im trying to find the perfect foundation!! i tried the new ysl one today and i loooove!!! never tried clinique might have a little look!!
