Clarins Everlasting Foundation

Clarins Everlasting Foundation
Foundation Friday is back! I used to do this series on my blog a while ago but thought it was time to bring it back. I own around 30-35 foundations which is excessive i know! I just can't help myself. I am always on the hunt for that perfect base. Over the past week i have given you all the chance on Twitter and Instagram to vote out of a choice of four foundations. The winner this week is the Clarins Everlasting Foundation which was in lead by quite a few votes.

Like always lets start with the packaging. This bottle is definitely high end! It is a glass frosted bottle which looks gorgeous with the gold lid. The bonus points go to Clarins as YES it has a pump! Finally a high end brand which provides the pump to make life that little bit easier. You receive the standard amount of 30ml like most foundations.

The Clarins Everlasting Foundation has a matte finish whilst still looking luminous. I do love a good matte base but sometimes you still want to look like you have that slight glow. With me there is a difference from looking luminous and looking oily its a fine line not to cross! This foundation does that perfectly. The coverage is medium to full and easily buildable. I find it blends in easily and doesn't feel heavy.

Clarins claim this foundation to have 18 hours of wear and keeping us matte. Does it do this? Yes it does. I have super oily skin and find this foundation works well on me if i use a good primer and powder. I would say this foundation would work on Oily or Dry Skin. Even though it has a matte finish it isn't drying, doesn't cling to dry patches and it isn't super matte like some foundations. 

I can definitely see myself using this more now in A/W especially with me preferring a fuller coverage. To get best results i found applying with a sponge/Beauty Blender was best. 

Where To Buy on Offer:

  2. The bottle is certainly gorgeous! I love that subtle glow and often avoid mattifying foundations because I have very dry skin. This does sound like it wouldn't look a cakey mess on my face though, I'm intrigued!

  9. Love the packaging. I tried a sample and really like it but I'm not too keen on matte / full coverage foundations so never purchased it. My skin is normal to combo so I prefer dewy bases. x

  10. I can't remember the last time I even looked at a Clarins product let alone their foundations. I do know my mum was looking into their foundation though but I was hesitant on her buying it as I haven't read any reviews on it until, well now ahaha. Im glad to hear its a nice foundation, although Im not in love with a Matte base because of my skin type I can see how it would work nicely x Great post doll !

  11. I used to buy Clarins foundations and don't remember I've been ever disappointed with them. Sounds so good that it can be used on both dry and oily skin, it is so rarely when the foundation suits all skin types. I have oily skin too and in spite of it I still do not like 100% matte finish, so I love the idea this foundation leaves the skin luminous. I believe it is absolutely worth giving it a try! Thanks for your review :)

  12. Wow this foundation sounds really good, a bit pricey for me but if I ever choose to invest in one I'll have a look at this. Plus it having a pump is a lifesaver as some foundation applicators are just a bit ridiculous! x

  13. I totally agree with you! Foundations are my weakness I don't know why but there's just something really satisfying about having a little collection :') I've never actually tried a Clarins one before however this sounds really good. I may just have to make a note of it for the next time I'm feeling spendy. Also your photos are so gorgeous!! x
