Clarins

 
Until recently I had never tried any products from Clarins, cosmetics or skincare alike. I don’t hear much about the brand from US beauty bloggers but recently kept hearing their products brought up by a few of the European and Canadian bloggers that I follow. I always knew they were a respected brand but never felt like picking anything up… until recently that is.

After browsing the blogger and beauty world for a high coverage long-lasting foundation that would work for my oily skin I stumbled upon the new reformulation of Clarins Everlasting + foundation.  With promises of 18hour flawless coverage that is lightweight and natural I quickly added it to my cart. It’s formulated with Bamboo Powder and Organic Quinoa for mattifying but comfortable long-lasting wear.
 
I picked mine up in the shade 107 and it is a perfect match for my skin tone. I picked this up online and tried my best to match with my skin since I had never tried a foundation from Clarins before. The great thing about this foundation is it comes in a wide range of colors, 14 to be exact.  So you are sure to find a shade that works for you. The bottle is also quite nice, glass with a good weightiness to it. This can be good and bad. I like having a quality bottle especially when I am shelling out a bit more on a high end foundation but it isn’t the most travel friendly bottle. I tend to leave this one at home and bring a foundation that’s more travel friendly if I am going to be on the road. It also comes with a pump top making dispensing and application quite easy. No worries of dumping or squeezing too much product out.
 
The formulation its self is liquid and buffs into the skin easily. This is definitely a full coverage foundation that can be easily built up to the fullest of coverage. Since this is so weightless feeling you won’t be left with any cakiness. I do suggest moisturizing and using a primer beforehand, especially if you may have dry patches because this can cling a little more to those areas. Overall I felt like this foundation lasted me through the entire work day keeping my t-zone matte but with still a natural finish to my skin. I don’t think it last for 18hours like Clarins claims but close enough for me! It was able to cover small acne spots and redness but I still found I needed a bit of concealer on any spots that were more prominent.
I never tried the original formula so I can’t compare it but I can say that I really enjoy using the new one. This isn’t the cheapest of foundations but that is to be expected from a more highend brand like Clarins, this retails for $40. Have you tried this foundation before? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
