Today I am reviewing one of my favorite every day wear foundations till date. It is the Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15.
Price $27 for 30 ml
Wear this oil-free Even Better Makeup SPF 15 and something amazing happens: Without any makeup, you will see improved clarity, a more even skintone, and visibly diminished age spots. These results can be witnessed by all ethnicities in just 4 to 6 weeks. The long-wearing formula provides moderate-to-full coverage and also helps prevent new discolorations with SPF-plus antioxidants.
What I think
The Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15 foundation comes in an opaque flesh toned squeeze bottle with a fine nozzle that controls the amount of product being dispensed. The basic non messy bottle with its tightly secured lid is quite effective and travel friendly. The texture is on the thinner side – it is neither too runny nor too creamy. This silky liquid foundation has the perfect consistency to work with a foundation brush or makeup sponge. You can use your fingers as well if you want to control the coverage. It applies seamlessly and spreads beautifully onto the skin. It feels very light on the skin and allows the skin to breathe through. This foundation is meant for skin type 2 & 3 – Dry/Combination & Oily. So suffice to say the product is formulated to cater to hydration as well as oil control needs. It provides moderate coverage but can be built up by layering. The foundation is light enough to layer on without appearing cakey on the skin. It hides minor blemishes and redness. It settles into a semi matte finish with a slight overall glow – not the greasy/shiny kind. The complexion just perks up with an intrinsic luminous appearance. In terms of wear time, it comfortably wore for 10 hours. With a primer it wore for 13 hours and definitely has potential to last longer. I was matched to shades 6 Honey & 16 Golden Neutral. However Golden Neutral won me/my skin over and I can definitely say it brings out the “My skin but better” vibe. I have used/tested this foundation for almost 8 months now. Have used it in the extreme winter as well as in unforgivable summer heat, needless to say it has worked flawlessly.
Overall, I absolutely love this foundation. It has the perfect consistency and feel that makes it the best base makeup for daily wear. Clinique products are fragrance free and being allergy tested it doesn’t aggravate breakouts. It would work great for those with sensitive skin as well.
