Clinique beyond perfecting 2 in 1 foundation.

So the Clinique beyond perfecting 2 in 1 foundation has finally fallen into my grasp, and I wanted to give it a try and see whether it would be my cup of tea. As bloggers, in particularly beauty bloggers, we are always on the search for the best of the best, and even once we find something that may work extremely well for us we still search high and low for another treasure to add to our Pandora's box. 

The Clinique beyond perfecting 2 in 1 foundation appealed to me so much when it first caught my eye on television, then gradually was being advertised everywhere. I wanted to pick it up for the longest time but didn't want to travel to a store to buy one nor did I want to order online and pay for delivery.
I do love to venture out and research base products that would potentially be a perfect match to my skin tone, so this beauty was definitely on my wishlist. As I was in town one day doing my grocery shopping all the way back in April I stumbled across the Clinique counter, somehow I felt my feet turn and start to move towards the counter with all the make-up products gleaming at me.  I was stuck between two shades but with a little help from staff, I ended up picking up the foundation in Ginger 23 (the one I was previously looking at).
The Clinique beyond perfecting 2 in 1 foundation retails at £25 for 30ml and is a foundation and concealer all in one, with a light weight moisturising formula that covers pores and blemishes effortlessly without clogging the skin. The formula doesn't change colour or over oxidise during the day but instead stays true to your colour from start to finish even through sun rain or hail, and is suitable for all skin types.

My first experience of this foundation wasn't the best when I first tried it out, I was so eager to try it I packed it right on and was completely unhappy with the outcome. What I was forgetting is that the formula is both a foundation and concealer and well.... A little actually goes a very very long way. Once realising how to use this foundation I found it to be running alongside some of my top foundations, it has a smooth formula that is build-able for a full coverage look, but even without it covers up blemishes in an instant. Being a woman of colour I was over the moon at the amount of warmer and yellow tones they had to the range, so much so I think I might even pick up the other shade I was interested in to use for highlighting/concealing. This foundation is so versatile you can use it as a foundation or a concealer, or just use to conceal certain areas, such as dark circles under the eyes. Can we talk about the wand, yes this foundation has a wand, no need to fiddle, the wand allows you to get just the right amount of formula to use without the constant messy build up of pouring the foundation out on the back of your hand. I have fallen in love with the wand as its just like you would find with a concealer but bigger and better, you cant go wrong.

The longevity of the Clinique foundation is out of this world and even with my oily skin I find I don't have to keep the shine at bay, neither does it show lines or crack. I literally only need the smallest swatch to be able to get the coverage I want and to finish the look I just need to lightly dust some translucent powder of the top, and that's it easy as 1,2,3!

This has certainly been added to the front of my dressing table among many of my other favourite beauty products that I constantly reach for. If your looking for a foundation that doesn't crease, doesn't transfer onto clothes, doesn't budge, a foundation that has longevity, good colour match, conceals perfectly whilst leaving your skin being able to breath, then this is the product for you. It's a definite 10/10 from me!
