I have been asked by a few friends to write a post on foundation. One little item that I feel is the worst to buy because it is like trying to find a good pair of jeans – impossible!
I had found an amazing foundation with an SPF which I absolutely loved! So easy to apply and it matched the colour of my skin perfectly so I had a natural look. Unfortunately, this was discontinued and couldn’t be found anywhere! Knowing that I would have to start my mission of finding the perfect foundation again, without much time was not clever – I left it to the last minute with one pump away from the foundation finishing!
This has to be one of the most difficult items to buy because of the colour matching. My advice? When you have a quarter of your foundation left in the bottle, make sure you go to the shops before you land up in my situation. At least this will give you some time to search for something new if you need to.
After a minor panic attack, I decided to start the mission. MAC is a very popular brand and there have been great reviews about their makeup. After testing out the MAC Studio Sculpt foundation in the chair of a MAC station in Edgars, I bought it. After some time using the foundation, I was so sad to discover that the foundation seemed to crack and looked flaky. My skin can be dry at times which is what I thought caused this effect. I then bought a prima – MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage, which felt wonderful on the skin, very easy to apply, smooth and silky. This specific prima had a slight glitter to it and it evened out the complexion of my skin removing any redness.

One negative about this was that I had to buy two products at a time which weren’t friendly on the wallet and the foundation was very easily transferable onto my clothes. It wasn’t as long lasting as I had hoped.
After a visit back home to see the family, and discussing this stressful situation with my mum, she recommended the Clarins range of foundation. A foundation she has used for a long time! In fact, she should be the brand ambassador for Clarins as she has used their products for years and highly recommends all of them. I am now using Clarins Everlasting Foundation …. and it is amazing. The best foundation I have used in a very long time. Clarins Everlasting Foundation matches the colour of my skin perfectly, it has an SPF but is light and covers all blemishes, lasting the full work day without any marking or rubbing off. I addition to looking great after using this product, the Clarins Everlasting Foundation has the most wonderful scent making the experience of using it so worthwhile!
