Hi loves! I have been in a mood lately to trying out new foundations and today I share my thoughts with you on Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer in shade Ivory (30 ml). I ordered mine from Douglas.nl and the shade Ivory I picked is way too dark for me. I have been using lightening drops from Body Shop to make it match for my skin tone. Before we go any further I want to let you know I have oily skin.
The foundation comes in a glass bottle and the applicator it has is a huge doe foot applicator. I don't think there is any other foundation, which comes with this kind of applicator. I have been putting the foundation on my hand and use the lightening drops to get it lighter, so it would match me.
Clinique products are allergy tested and 100% fragrance free. This foundation gives a full coverage and natural matte finish. The formula of it is oil free and feels light wight on skin, which was really surprising to me, because it gives so full coverage.
It has been pleasure to use (even though its way too dark for me). I love the coverage it gives me and also how easily it blends out. I don't get cake face when I have been wearing it and it last on me all day (even when the weather is super hot.
I do get oil when wearing it and it doesn't really surprise me, because I kind of expect it. I really haven't met a foundation, which has kept me matte and oil free all day. I usually need to use oil control paper (I'm using one from Missha at the moment) through out the day, but don't need to do touch ups through out the day.
On the picture below you can see how the foundation looks on me after 8 hours of wear. I haven't done any kind of touchups and there is no filters on the picture. I'm so impressed how well this foundation preforms and I'll keep using it.
I'll try to get a demo video up next week, so you guys can see how it will preforms for yourself :)
Which is your holy grail foundation and your skin type?
I want to try more foundations :D
