It has been a while since I last write a foundation review but it doesn't mean I haven't been spending my time trialling them...
I love it when cosmetic companies include a little sachet sample in a magazine as it is a great way of trying before buying. Obviously, it is inevitable, that the one shade suits all colour they have selected to include isn't going to suit everyone but luckily for me, this one is perfect!
The shade is 08 Silk Canvas (MF-N)
The foundation - Clinique superbalanced silk makeup SPF15
Suitable for - dry combination to oily
Slip on a silk-enriched foundation. Feel naked, yet covered to perfection. Control oil, yet hydrate where needed. Protect with SPF. Oil-free. Sheer to moderate coverage. Natural-matte finish. Ideal for Dry Combination to Oily Skin Types.
It takes a lot to get me excited about a foundation and for me to rave about it. I have a checklist and it has to tick all the boxes. I have to say I really love this new foundation. Superbalanced silk is fantastic for my skin. Texture wise it is a runny foundation, it glides on like silk. Applies smoothly and seamlessly. It looks natural, blends well and despite it claiming to only be sheer/moderate coverage, I find it conceals everything I need it to, better than some foundations that claim to be full coverage. Like a silk veil, it fills in the dreaded pores on my nose, covers imperfections (specifically I have a brown dot on my nose and you cannot see it in the picture above. I think it makes my skin look flawless and bright. I feel really confident and happy wearing this foundation.
It lasts a good few hours too and keeps my blusher in place.
Love, love, love!
