Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer Review + Swatch

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer

Hello everyone!

I’m still on the search for a foundation that works with an oily skin type. If you have a very oily t-zone like myself, then you know the struggle of foundation breaking apart and looking shiny only after a few hours wear.

What intrigued me about this foundation was that it claims to be full coverage (hence the foundation + concealer description), long-lasting (12+ hours), oil-free, does not oxidize, does not clog pores and the color stays true through sweat & humidity.

This foundation has a cream consistency and a natural-matte finish. I like the applicator because it picks up the perfect amount for the entire face and I do not have to touch the foundation with my fingers during application. I use this with a flat top buffer brush to really blend in the product.

I like how this foundation wears for a few hours; I get a flawless finish and lots of compliments when wearing this. However, it doesn’t look so good after 6 hours or so; it starts to break apart on my chin and around my mouth and looks rather cake-y. I like to use a liquid foundation, because it is thinner in consistency and seems to last longer on me, and then use this on the areas (cheeks usually) where I need more coverage.

I got the lightest shade, 0.5 breeze, this shade has a pink undertone.

Overall, I like this foundation for when I’m going out for a few hours but this would not be my pick for when I’m out all day. It lived up to the claims that it made except for the long-lasting one for me. I can see this working for someone that doesn’t have such an oily t-zone.
