I am a big big fan of Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector (or previously known as Derma White Clinical Brightening Serum) So big, I have a bottle on standby in case I run out as I’m wont to do any day now. I credit this Even Better serum for helping restore the clarity to my skin after recent events and I’m quite happy to stick to it. But I digress… because today, I’m here to tell you that Clinique has a new Even Better Makeup … which is liquid foundation! :D
Actually, its new here in Malaysia and you can expect to see it on counters starting March 2012… which is now! :D I believe our friends overseas have already got access to the Clinique Even Better Makeup liquid foundation for a while. This product is a light to medium coverage liquid foundation that not only acts as a foundation, but also as skincare to take care of dark spots and imperfections in skin tone, with regular use. Being a big fan of the skincare already, naturally the makeup piqued my interest ;)
The Clinique Even Better Makeup liquid foundation is a blend of makeup and skincare, in that the silky foundation contains ingredients to improve skin clarity, reduce discolourations and give a more even skintone overall. But you know what? I expect the last 2 from any liquid foundation, not just Even Better Makeup but it does give skin a brighter look that I quite like.
At a glance, the texture of the liquid foundation is light, and it spreads very easily. You can use a brush (as suggested by the Clinique makeup artist) or your fingers, which is what I prefer. Although very light in texture and feel, the coverage is surprisingly quite good, especially for redness on skin. I will be bringing you a more in depth review in time to come.
In the meantime, if you’d like to check this one out for yourself, there are 10 shades available to suit most Asian skintones and you can check them out at the Clinique counters. I will say I quite like this one, because it holds up well in our hot and humid weather, and is a good colour match for me (Fresh Beige) and I’m not one to look favourably on many liquid foundations ;)
Have you tried the Clinique Even Better Makeup Foundation? What do you think about makeup that fuses with skincare like this one? I quite like the idea because its better than makeup that will harm your skin, isn’t it? :P This is new here in Malaysia but perhaps you might have already tried it from overseas or are using it. Do share if you have ;)
