Hope you are all well? If you're like me then a base product is the key part of any make-up look and despite being obsessed with lipsticks and blushes, if my base isn't right my face isn't right! Back in August I decided to treat myself to a foundation that I had tried in sample form and really liked! It was the Clinique Beyond Perfecting 2-in-1 Foundation. I've been using this for almost two months now and it's been my go to foundation for pretty much every occasion. I hope you enjoy this review and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.
The Clinique Beyond Perfecting is a foundation and concealer that is designed to perfect your look with a long lasting yet lightweight formula. It is also oil free, which I really like in a foundation, especially as my morning moisturiser is oil free also. The packaging is pretty interesting for this foundation, but I do really like the large doefoot applicator, which means you can dot this on your face without getting messy fingers at all! The applicator is designed to spot-conceal, but I prefer to keep it nice and clean for use across all of my face, plus it's housed in really nice quality glass container, who else loves a glass container?!
The formulation of this foundation is fantastic and I can really rely on it to stick around regardless of it's a busy day in the marketing office or whether I'm out and about running errands. I've even worn it for a full shift and then to the gym after ( I know you're not supposed too) but the fact it stayed on through a sweaty gym session is pretty impressive. Despite being medium-full coverage, this foundation does feel breathable on your skin and you are never left with a powdery or streaky finish. The shade I have is neutral and even though it's probably a shade or two up from my natural tone, it has been a great and very versatile shade during the summer months!
Overall, I really like this foundation and over the past few months not many of my other foundations have managed to see daylight. It's £25 which I think is pretty reasonable considering this can be a concealer too! I oftern apply it to troublesome areas when I'm wearing a lighter foundation on the weekend. I would recommend this foundation if you're looking for a multi-tasker that you can rely on to stick around regardless of what you might have planned that day or night.
I would love to hear from you in the comments section below! Have you tried this foundation, or is it something that sounds suitable for you?
Lots of Love
