I’ve really been looking forward to trying Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer , but somehow this went to the back of the test pile so I’ve been a bit slow in review. The claim is that Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer is a concealer and foundation in one – at least you know what it’s going to do from the name!
It’s also making heavy weather of the fact that it’s supposed to be a light formula. But, it’s not really. I love a proper coverage foundation, and that’s definitely what you get here without any ‘mask’ look, but it’s not what you could describe as light. Formula wise, I think it’s a little dry on first application but Clinique claim that it tackles oiliness and hydration where needed throughout the day. This does ring true because as the day wore on it felt less dry and more hydrating! It’s very clever.
I completely love the chunky doe’s foot applicator – it means you can dab for precision or stroke and then blend afterwards. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer is comfortable in the wear although my preference is for something more dewy in both look and feel, but if you like the glamour of fuller coverage that gives an even tone to the face, you’ll love this when it hits the shelves in February for £25.
I need to go and retrieve the new NARS foundation now… I haven’t reviewed that yet, either!
