Clinique Even Better Refresh Foundation Review + Swatches

My new favourite... 

Say hello to Clinique's new foundation launch. I have been loyal to Lancome now for well over a year - so it's been one hell of a surprise to find a foundation I love more than that. For me, finding a foundation that can last all day on my oily t-zone is a game changer. As a glasses wearer too, my nose is forever a problem area. 

Typically after a full day of wear, my nose has broken down all makeup applied - which can leave me looking like an oily rudolph with my bare nose showing through. When I manage to find a foundation that manages to last all day and not breakdown around my nose completely - I will be raving about it. 

The foundation is described as full coverage, suitable for all skintypes and comes in 27 shades, the clinique website has it as: 

What It Is
Full-coverage foundation with 24-hour wear that revitalizes skin for a more youthful look.

What It Does 
24-hour hydrating foundation with flawless full coverage and a natural finish. 
Creates a virtually poreless look. Smooths and plumps for younger-looking skin.

Who It’s For 
Skin Types 1, 2, 3 (Dry, Dry Combination, and Oily Combination) 

Key Ingredients / Technology 
Hyaluronic acid plumps fine dry lines, potent peptides help keep skin smooth and salicylic acid retexturizes skin. 

Great to Know
No parabens. No phthalates. No fragrance. Allergy tested. Oil-free. Non-streaking. Non-acnegenic. Won’t clog pores.

I am pale, with neutral undertones - so 01 Flax is ideal for me (Maybe one day I might get a tan though, that would be nice lol). I can't speak for the full shade range, but the bottom end seems like a good range - and definitely goes pale enough to suit us fairest folk. 

I find it blends beautifully with a beauty blender, and I love the full coverage finish. I find it has a glow, a healthy glow. Most importantly it easily lasts all day with no issues... even with my oily skin. I am seriously impressed with this one, and so impressed I wore it to a wedding last night - and for me, that's the ultimate tell if I love a foundation - when I trust it to keep me looking my best. 

If you are interested in trying this I highly recommend picking up a sample from your local counter - I'm sure you won't be disappointed! :)
