When it comes to purchasing high-end foundation, it is usually a premeditated purchase, with a lot of research done beforehand. Earlier this week, I dropped by Sephora and had my first impulse high-end foundation buy–it was a match made in makeup heaven (literally!). Upon walking in, I learned that Sephora had just unveiled the most advanced foundation matching technology in all of the beauty industry. A Sephora makeup artist used the new innovative Pantone Color IQ machine to scan my face, and within 10 seconds it revealed my foundation shade in every brand at Sephora. The computer registered my number as 3Y07 and gave me a page of all my suitable foundations. Click here to find out where you can get your face scanned today!
This is how I was introduced to the well known Clinique Even Better SPF 15 Foundation. This foundation has been in the beauty realm for quite some time, but after sampling it on at the store, I knew it had to come home with me. Let’s dive into this review, shall we?!
According to Clinique…
Wear oil-free, dermatologist-developed Even Better Makeup SPF 15 and something amazing happens: Without any makeup, see improved clarity, a more even skin tone, visibly diminished age spots. For all ethnicities. In just 4 to 6 weeks. Broad spectrum SPF helps protect against future darkening. For continued benefits-even after you take it off-partner with Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector.
I’ve found that the most successful way to apply this foundation is with synthetic brushes. The Samantha Champman Real Techniques brushes are my personal favorite! A little bit goes a long way, so squeeze a quarter size amount to the back of your hand and build up the product slowly to the coverage you desire.
It is a natural to medium coverage foundation, but has the potential to be full coverage depending on how much you build on top of it. A great liquid foundation suitable for daily wear.
It is a dewey finish, your skin will be left feeling hydrated and have a radiant glow.
Who I recommend it to…
-Dry/normal skin type
-If you like BB creams
-Young to Mature skin
-SPF 15 protection
-Comes in 30 shades
-Excellent texture and coverage
-Improved the condition of skin overtime (similar to BB cream)
-Oxidize over a few hours
-Needs a setting powder
