Never have I felt so attached to a foundation before that has 101 benefits for my combination skin. After a short consultation with Clinique, I found out about my skin woes which I never even knew I had! I have some dry patches, open pores on my nose, redness on my cheeks and an oily t-zone. From a range of 20 shades, I was matched up to 02 Alabaster Stay-Matte Oil-Free foundation. The product boasts that it provides a “mattifying finish” and “addresses oil breakthrough”, amongst other beneficial qualities. I would 100% back up these bold statements as I have noticed a massive difference over the past month.
At £22 a pop for the 30ml tube, it’s on the expensive side but certainly worth it. A little goes a long way; once the gel-cream texture is either buffed or applied into the skin it provides all day coverage and controls the shine on my t-zone. I needn’t worry about my red patches either, the formula has calmed my skin down an incredible amount which means I now only apply it on areas that flare up, as opposed to my whole face.
As someone who objects anything liquid or moose based, I have been completely converted. A Clinique newbie, excited to try out the rest of their range!
