Honestly, I love Clarins optimism with their new foundation, Clarins Everlasting Foundation, that promises hold for 18 hours. Who’s up for 18 hours? I did manage to put it to the test for a good 12 hours though and it totally lasted.
So, I’ll give you the blurb – a microfilm of new generation silicones bond with your skin’s hydrolyphic film; the addition of Hectorite controls shine (it’s a clay mineral). Bamboo powder does the mattifying. And, it’s got the new darling of the beauty world, quinoa. I hate quinoa – I had to write a beauty book in ten days flat way back and it was the chapter on quinoa (pronounced KeenWa) that nearly broke me – ever since then I’ve had an aversion.
Nonetheless, Clarins Everlasting Foundation is a joy of a foundation. If you have oily skin, I think you’re going to find it a very comfortable wear. I don’t have oily skin particularly but was still so impressed with the velvet finish, proper coverage and soft feeling it gave my skin. There’s nothing I don’t like about this, and I don’t even like matte foundations! If you like a dead matte coverage, this isn’t it – it’s one of the more dewy mattes, if that makes any sense, leaving skin still looking hydrated and supple.
Clarins Everlasting Foundation is a re-invention of the original version – I never used that so I can’t compare the two, but I’m not sure it matters. I know a damn good foundation when I find one!
It launches in February 2015 for£27.50. Oh, and shades go quite deep, but they still need to lose the names – Cappuccino is the darkest. *le sigh*
