I am really excited to talk to you all about one of the very first Clinique products that I’ve tried, and I’m absolutely in love with the new Beyond Perfecting Foundation, in shade 02 Alabaster.
Before trying out the full size version, I picked up a free 10 day sample, with the offer that Clinique are promoting. You can get your free sample with a promotional voucher that Clinique have currently going on, by clicking here!
I firstly went in and was matched with shade 04 Creamwhip, which is also for very fair skin. However, once I took the sample home, I found out that the colour oxidises and becomes darker. So I went back in for a re-match and ended up trialling the next shade under Creamwhip, and that was Alabaster (which is definitely my true colour match)!!! <3
So try a sample before, honestly as this foundation heavily oxidises, and gets darker in colour! On the whole, I absolutely love this foundation, and I love that it’s a 2-in-1 working as both a foundation and a concealer.
So the foundation formula is beautifully amazing!!!! :D, I love the creamy texture of the foundation, it just blends in with ease on your face, and it’s very adaptable for your skin type. My face has an oily T-zone, so I look for a foundation that will matte those areas, and also add glow to my other areas! This Clinique foundation does exactly that, and it doesn’t run through sweat and it has managed to stay on my face for up to 12 hours, which is really amazing for me!!!! The Formula allows your face to breathe, as the formula is richly pigmented, and offers a lot of colour through minimal usage ( you need a couple of dots of the foundation on your face, for a full coverage)! and it doesn’t clog up your pores, just giving you a flawless finish, and leaves your skin feeling moisturised and fresh!!!
I love the transparent bottle packaging, and love the circular tube shape, and the white typography on the bottle. The bottle is a twist open top, with an applicator brush just like the NARS Creamy Concealers. I really love the idea of this brush. It applies the foundation directly onto the face, and under eye areas….But I only dislike one thing about the applicator is that it doesn’t fully touch the bottom of the foundation to gather all the foundation…. and that’s the only a minor problem I have!!! I must say £25 is also a great price for a 2-in-1 Foundation and concealer, as it’s one of the lower priced luxury foundations out there!!! I would definitely recommend trying this foundation out, or at least the 10 day sample, as you will not regret it! <3
