Clarins Ever Matte has very quickly became my go-to foundation. It has very quickly overtaken Estée Lauder Double Wear and MAC Studio Fix Fluid for the top spot in my list of favourite foundations. Yes, you’re reading this right ladies and gents – I said it! It is a skin balancing foundation that contains a cocktail of minerals and plant extracts to deliver all day protection against unwanted shine. It perfect for oily and combination skin like mine. Lately, my skin has become incredibly oily and I was the hunt for a new foundation that could cope with my forever changing skin and a friend recommended this as Estée Lauder (as much as I love it) just wasn’t cutting the mustard. My skin changes like the weather and I have a number of different foundations to combat each change so why not add another, right? Clarins Ever Matte is a medium to full coverage foundation and it is incredibly long lasting. I still needed to blot throughout the day with Clarins Ever Matte Mineral Powder but the times were few and far between so it wasn’t really an issue. It lasted a tiny bit longer than Estée Lauder Double Wear and a lot longer than MAC Studio Fix Fluid but it looks much more natural. You only need a tiny amount to get a really good coverage and it is buildable without looking like you’ve caked it on with a trowel. Clarins Ever Matte Foundation is lovely and creamy and has the most gorgeous scent. I’m usually against using fragranced products on my face but this was really refreshing, subtle and a little bit fruity.
The packaging of this foundation is fabulous – it is really simple yet sleek and luxe with the addition of the gold lid. It comes in a squeeze tube which I happen to really like as it means I can control the product without being wasteful and it’s incredibly hygienic and user friendly. Plus when you’re travelling about, there will be no potential for smashed glass. Bonus! It isn’t a cheap foundation retailing at £27.00 but it is in the same price bracket for most of the foundations I use and it is worth every penny.
