When it arrived I couldn't wait to try it out. The next morning I washed and cleansed my face ready for the moisturiser and found that I really, really, did not have the right shade. I'm not sure if it was to do with the colour of my skin, but I was orange! My neck looked a completely different race to my face. I washed it straight off!
However, a quick email later, the correct shade was sent out in the post!
(I will add before I continue, that I gave my sister in law the previous shade of the foundation to use on her holiday and the tone matched her very well!)
Turns out, I am more of a 'Light' shade.
I am definitely no skin care or beauty expert but I have enjoyed using this foundation. Whilst it is advertised as moisture surge, I wouldn't treat it as just a tinted moisturiser.
It goes on quite effortlessly whether you're using a brush or a sponge - even your fingers if you're in a rush and there's no time to search for one!
The main fault I would point out, is that once the cream has been on your face for a few seconds, it's quite hard to blend. I found that if I didn't do it quickly, then I was left with dark marks down the sides of my face which made it quite obvious I was wearing it. For this, I ended up having to blend using my own foundation to ensure that I wasn't left with streaks.
My favourite part however, is that my face is the smoothest it's ever been. My face is so soft that I do quite often find myself touching it just for the sake of it. How weird does that sound?
|Ignore my man eyebrows, but how smooth does my skin look!?|
|The hair is horrendous, but notice the before & after tone of my skin|
Priced at £28.00 this foundation is probably not one I would purchase for myself - I don't wear enough make up to justify the price, but I think for the women out there who are interested in beauty products and want something new to try, this is definitely one to add to the basket.
I was sent a tube of the Clinique colour corrector cream for the purpose of this review.
