Clarins Everlasting Foundation & Concealer Stick

Clarins Everlasting Foundation (£24)
Clarins Concealer Stick (£18)
I had been recommended Clarins facial makeup by a close friend who claimed this was the "best foundation" she'd ever used (and she's used a lot), so I thought I'd give it a go and went and bought shade 104 Cream and the palest concealer stick to go with it. I've never really tried Clarins makeup before but I'm definitely glad I did.
The foundation
Firstly, let's just announce the best thing about this foundation. THE SMELL. Oh my god, it is heaven in a bottle of beige liquid. It's some sort of fruity, watermelon-y scent which I obsess over. 
Not only does it smell incredible but it also melts into your skin. It's the perfect combination of sheer and opaque and I think it's a great everyday foundation. Slap on enough though and it's thick enough to cover anything! It blends so smoothly and I honestly can't praise it high enough. It also stays true to its name and stays put for hours on end without the need for powder (I actually don't even need to put powder on after applying).

Before & After Concealer

The concealer I bought because I needed a new one anyway. It is very similar to MAC's Studio Finish concealer (always one of my favourites) because of its thickness and ability to hide dark circles. You also only need a dab to cover anything and it blends so so easily - although it is very drying. My only complaint about the concealer was the lack of shade choice; I ended up having to buy a deathly white shade because the next colour up was for latinos, I swear. Perhaps not as wonderful as the foundation, but still a good buy. (Plus I got a free moisturiser and lip gloss which is always fun.)

  1. You certainly have an eye for photography, that first photo is so well composed. Beautiful stuff. Also, I hail from Reading (though I haven't lived there for four years now)- holla!

    1. Thank you :) although I'm pretty sure it's all the natural light on metal because I didn't expect it to turn out like that haha. And small world eh? xo
