Hello and welcome to a new week Mes Amies!
I hope that everyone is feeling refreshed and revitalized today. I'm sipping on my coffee and waiting for the sunrise as I type this.

I recently got a message on here saying that I should show more of me on this blog. It took me by surprise. I love blogs. I love reading them and subscribe to about 10 of them. One thing I detest though is this more modern for of blogging where its all "ME ME ME. SHOP MY LINKS! FOLLOW ME ON IG". This, just isn't my style. However, I do "get it".  Its more interesting when you know the person behind the blog. You get more of a connection to them this way.
Anyhow, today is the day that you'll se more of me. I'm reviewing what just might be my new favorite foundation.  The best way that I know to do this is to show it to you close up. A little background for reference. I put the foundation on in the morning. It wasn't a work day, it was Saturday. The day consisted of running around with my hubby doing errands all day, then dinner that night. The photos in this post were taken after dinner. I had worn the foundation for approximately 10 hours when I took the photos. Also, it might be worth noting that Saturday was a windy, rainy day.

Okay, now that we have gotten that out of the way, today we are talking about Clinique's "Even Better Glow" foundation.

I have been wearing Clinique's "Even Better" foundation for about two years. Its a lovely medium weight foundation that provides a velvety finish. It's wonderful . When I saw that Clinique had launched "Even Better Glow", I had to try it.
As someone with a beauty "bolgette" and an avowed makeup lover since childhood, I have tried a LOT of foundations. This one, immediately took the number one spot.
Simply out, it's dreamy.
It covers the imperfections in my skin completly and fully. However, my skin still looked like skin. No mask like appearance , no cakey texture or flaking.
In the winter, my skin starts to look so dull. I get dermaplaned, I get facials and acid peels. Still, these New England winters win year after year.
This foundation has leveled the playing field. It gives my skin a 'glow' to it. When I say 'glow', I do not mean shimmer. There is nothing like glitter or highlighter in here.
However, my skin looked and felt like how it does when I've just applied a heavy moisturizing night mask.

There is a gentle light reflecting quality to it.

You might be as pale fair as me, or have skin that is the darkest ebony. With 30 shades, there is a color match for all of us.

With this, or any foundation, I'd suggest using a primer underneath and applying it with a damp "Beauty Blender" sponge. Those two things will guarantee you the most smooth, even application.

The price is $29.50 and worth every cent in my opinion. You can buy it Here if you already know your shade. I not, stop into your local Clinique counter. I'm sure that they will be happy to find your your perfect match.

The other makeup I'm wearing here is:

  • MAC Nude Art Library EyeShadow Palette
  • Benefit's "dandelion" blush
  • IT Cosmetics Blow-Out lash mascara (AND Ardell Whispies lashes)
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow-Wiz in blonde
  • Marc Jacobs Lip  in SUGAR SUGAR
My top is from Madewell, current season.

There ya go. Go get this foundation. You'll be glad that you did.
