I've been trying this foundation for a few days now, and it's very interesting. That's not normally a word used to describe foundation, but you'll see what I mean...and you'll see I mean it in a good way!
The application took some practice- but this is because I was ridiculous and didn't read the instructions. You are meant to sweep the applicator over your forehead, cheeks, chin and jaw, then under your eyes and down your nose, and go in afterwards for touch ups. Sweep on, then blend with your fingers. I used a flat top foundation brush because I'm far too messy to use my fingers, but see what works best for you! It's slow drying, so you don't need to panic, but I'm a fan of blending it as fast as I can because I like to pretend it's a race.
But how did it feel and how long did it last? Because it covered so damn much, I thought that surely it'd feel fairly heavy. But noooo- it's incredibly light. I'm actually wearing it right now and I have a vile head cold- normally a time where the slightest bit of makeup irritates me, but it feels great! I wore it yesterday from about 10am and had a fairly full on day of blogging, driving to Auckland, dining out, and driving back to Cambridge again. It lasted much better than I expected- the only areas which would have needed touching up were my nose and chin, but this is standard for me.
If I haven't convinced you to give Beyond Perfecting a try, it's no drama- you can check out the other foundations in the Clinique range. The reason these are great is because they each target specific skin issues; makeup that HELPS your skin- this is uncommon!
Redness foundation SPF 15- for skins that suffer from Redness
Pore refining solutions foundation- helps minimize the appearance of pores
Anti Blemish foundation- for blemish prone skin
Out of the 4 foundations above, I have only tried Even Better, and I absolutely love it- the coverage is wonderful! As I said earlier though, I will buy Beyond Perfecting next time around because I can get the same coverage, and it'll last me longer! BONUS.
