It’s interesting that Clinique don’t call this a foundation on the packaging, but instead, ‘light reflecting make up’. I think that the inclusion of Vitamin C allows them to name it ‘Glow’ because it does have a brightening element as a skin care ingredient, and the promise is that over time, your skin will become more glowy even without the foundation. We shall see, but I’m not holding my breath! The formula contains luminizing pigments and I love a glowy foundation and Clinique in general but this is a rare miss for me. I felt it was a bit too shiny and glowy and also felt rather waxy on my skin. For a fluid, liquid foundation, it felt quite heavy and mask like on my skin – a bit like how older formula high SPF foundations felt although this one only has SPF15.
I think you can see that while it is a fluid, it’s also quite thick and my tip would be to apply very little initially and go over if you feel you need to. It did, at least, feel moisturising and another plus is that there are plenty of shades going from lightest to darkest HERE. It’s £27. For my personal taste, there is something awry with the formulation of this and usually I am quite a fan of Clinique foundations. But, I’ll also quickly flag again their new mascara, High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara (£18 HERE) which, as my beloved Dior mascara is running low, is becoming a daily go-to – I love it for very dark, defined, spiky lashes and no smudge.
