I have used several products by Clinique in the past including various foundations, and have only truly liked one or two products in the history of buying Clinique products.
Now i have to tell you I keep trying to like Clinique Products but to be honest, they just don't do it for me.
Here is what Clinique say about the Perfectly Real Make Up:
"Uses micro-pigment technology, so it blends with skins varying undertones, neutralizes imperfections. Looks real yet flawless."
First and foremost upon asking the Make Up Artist to colour match me she used a very strong yellow undertoned colour which was absolutely no where near my skin colour. I immediately told her this and she proceeded to put a more pink based tone on me (Shade 28).
I also originally didn't want Perfectly Real foundation, i wanted to try the Super Balance, but as you all know Make Up Artists seem to have this way of talking you into buying a certain product, even though you didn't want that one in the first place.
I applied this product to go to the Girls Aloud Concert last week and I have to admit on first application the foundation looked wonderful, it provided great coverage and hid almost all of my blemishes.
However within a couple of hours the foundation literally seemed to have disappeared.
Even taking into consideration that i have oily skin, this foundation is oil free so should not have literally melted off of my face.
I thought i should give the foundation another chance and wore it out on my first night in London when Arlene (DressJunkie) and I went out for a meal. I applied my make up before i went out and was only out for a few hours tops. When i returned to the hotel and removed my make up with a wipe there was very little foundation on the wipe, proving what i first thought, the longevity of this foundation is abysmal.
I am once again left feeling very disappointed after spending nearly £20 on a foundation for it to not do what it says it should do. This seems to be the case with several of the Clinique Skin Care Products and Cosmetics Range that i have tried. The only exceptions have been the Illuminating Concealer and a Blush, which i really like and would repurchase.
I will be selling this foundation and not be repurchasing from Clinique, i have become disheartened with the brand and I'm no longer willing to take the continual poor advice from the various counters i have been to.
I know a lot of people love Clinique but personally, they do very little for me.
What has been your experience with Clinique Foundations?
