Foundation review time! Been a while since I’ve done one. I actually stopped trying out a ton of foundations like I used to because Im trying to finish up what I have. Always hoped that one day I’ll find my holy grail foundation and I finally found it; the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer!!! I’m so excited. For reference, my skin is oily combo acne prone.
This is not a new launch and I actually have seen this around but never felt like I wanted to try it because honestly, Clinique is a brand that I’m never drawn to until now. I saw a couple of YouTubers raveee bout this foundation and I decided to finally try it. I went to the Clinique counter in Parkson KLCC and I asked for a sample (I’m in the shade 64 Cream Beige). After trying it for the first time, I knew I had to get it.
- Overall review:
The foundation looks like a large concealer tube with a doe foot applicator. I dont mind the packaging although some said its pretty unhygienic to keep putting back the applicator into the tube after every use but its fine with me. When my skin is good, I apply it directly onto my face and when my skin is acting up, I apply it on the back of my hand first to avoid cross contamination. Also, this packaging does not get messy and its ideal for travelling.
The consistency of this foundation is a little thick but the amazing thing is, it does not feel heavy AT ALL. It feels really light and comfortable on my skin and does not break me out. I use this foundation as both a foundation and a concealer as the name suggests. It is FULL coverage too which I LOVEEEE. I apply one full layer on my entire face and spot conceal on the face, where I need to. I use a separate under eye concealer because I want that area to be lighter than the foundation but this works under the eyes beautifully.
This foundation is just perfect for my skin. It has a healthy finish before setting with powder but I always set my foundation for the longevity and it looks amazing even after setting with powder. Does not look heavy or cakey. It lasts all day on my skin, controls my oil like no other foundation, and it looks beautiful even at the end of the day.
Also, the price point is another thing that makes me happy bout this foundation. It’s RM142 and I think that is a fair price because I do use it as a foundation and concealer and I have used other expensive foundations that doesn’t come close to this one. I would pay much more for this.
This is a foundation that I will definitely repurchase because I dont have to mix it with other foundations to make it look pretty, it’s everything I want in a liquid foundation and it’s even a great concealer! I’m kicking myself for not trying this sooner :p
I hope this review helps you if you’re considering on getting a new foundation. You can always ask for a sample first before buying the whole bottle 🙂 Thank you for reading guys xx
