Hello. My name is Simona and I am a foundation hoarder. Seriously, sane person doesn’t need as much. Well, we all have our quirks. Mine is foundations. I tend to gravitate towards more matte finish as I can get rather oily in my T-zone. This is how Clarins Ever Matte – Skin Balancing Foundation found its way into my make up bag. Two key words – matte and ever.
This foundation has medium coverage and semi-matte finish, which works with my combination towards oily skin. It blends easily (I do that with Real Techniques Buffing brush usually) and feels light on the skin. I set it with Rimmel Stay Matte powder as I don’t always get time for a touch ups. It holds up pretty well. After a long day without any touch ups it looks rather nice and prevents me from getting overly oily. There is some shining peaking, though not in a greasy, but in more slight sheen way.
The packaging is simple, but cute in that way. And it is certainly a plus when travelling as it takes lots less space (means I can shove something else in). You have to squeeze product out and some might find that messy or unhygienic, but it doesn’t bother me since I wash my hands before applying make up (hope you do to) and it’s easier to control amount of product you want.
Have you tried this? Have you tried any other Clarins foundation?
