Quick Pick: Clarins Everlasting Foundation+

Clarins' latest foundation is an improvement on an old favourite - Everlasting Foundation is Clarins' long-wear formula, and Everlasting Foundation+ is an improved version which now claims 18 hours of wear, shine control and colour that remains true throughout the day.  This last point is interesting to me - I recently tried a new foundation which unfortunately oxidised on my skin throughout the day, leaving a regrettably yellow cast which stopped my face from matching my neck.  Bad.

Anyway, Everlasting Foundation+ also boasts SPF 15, which is an essential in my eyes, and a dewy fresh finish.  I personally don't like a dewy finish, so I applied a tiny of bit of powder on top of it, and found that the results were still great - an even, brightening finish with a lovely glow.  Shade 103, Ivory, is a great match for my skintone, and there's a more warm toned pale shade available in 102.5 Porcelain to match

Wear wise, count me impressed - my skin looks even and fresh all day long when I wear it, and even when I take my makeup off at night some 15 hours after application, my skin is free of oily/shiny patches.  Given this impressive wear, it's natural to compare Everlasting Foundation+ to Estee Lauder's Double Wear - in my mind Everlasting Foundation+ is somewhat lighter in coverage and in texture, and my skin looks a little more natural with it compared to Double Wear, which needs very careful application to avoid looking overdone.

At £27.50 this is a luxury foundation, but if you really need your foundation to last all day, it's a surefire bet.  Find it at the Boots and Clarins websites, and on counter at your local Clarins concession, when it launches on February 15th.

  1. This is the kind of foundation that I am looking for. It has a nice shade and the coverage is so flawless. I love how it blends well on the skin.
