Aallexxy's Foundation files; Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer

Foundation Files; This is where I test out different base products, from concealer to powder, tinted moisturiser and foundation etc, over a period of 7-14 days and post my findings. (Follow me on Instagram,Twitter and Bloglovin so you don't miss a post) So let’s get started!!!

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer Swatch
What The brand says: A foundation-and-concealer in one for a natural, beyond perfected look that lasts all day. Lightweight, moisturizing makeup covers thoroughly without clogging pores. Skin breathes comfortably, colour stays true, even through sweat and humidity.Due to the rich pigment level that enhances this flawless coverage makeup, shades may appear deeper when first applied. Leave the foundation to settle just for a few minutes, this will allow the high pigment in the formula to adapt to your skin tone which is why you get such a flawless perfected finish.Suitable for ALL skin types. One dip of the wand gives you a full-face application and/or spot-conceals. Slow-dry formula makes blending easy, for 12 hours of full-coverage wear from a flexible formula that moves with skin.

Wear time (with/without primer):
Price (ml): £25 for 30ml

Pros: 20 Shades
Buildable coverage
Oil free
Cons: Possibly unhygienic
Inci list not on the website

Suitable Skin Types: All (extremes prep accordingly)
Ingredients: Not on the website

Oxidation: None
Any Other Information: It has a unique doe foot applicator, which is a nice change, but a very tiny OCD voice in my head questions the hygiene, that aside the foundation is a thick mouse texture, so I can see why a pump may not have worked in this instance.

Conclusion: Firstly the ‘natural’ finish is dependent on how much you apply, but it’s great that the foundation is buildable. If you adjust the amount you apply you get a lovely demi-matte natural look, the foundation lasts all day on me, although my oils do push through slightly in the T-zone area so to keep the perfected look I start with, one touch up is required. This foundation gives a beautiful finish to the skin, the dual use is convenient and cheaper than buying a separate concealer and the doe foot applicator is a unique touch. It's available here.
