I picked up my first Clinique foundation when I was 16 (probably a little young to start with) but this probably contributed to the reason why I still love and use it. At that time, I was using the Superfit range, which has now been discontinued.
I loved this because it was so light and blendable. Even a makeup rookie (like me at that time) could apply it perfectly. Yet while being light, it still gave me sufficient coverage that concealer could be easily skipped. And best of all, the result was a dewy, youthful finish.
When I went back to buy my third refill of this, I was told the unfortunate news that it had been discontinued. But the lovely Clinique representative informed me that Even Better Makeup was Clinique’s upgraded version of Superfit.
Even Better for me behaved the exact same way as Superfit with the added benefit of SFP 15. I consider this the best day foundation and it is light enough to be used on an everyday basis. You can also use it in the evening with a setting powder to provide extra coverage. Thanks to its texture, it is easy to apply either with a brush, sponge or even your fingers.
If you’re looking to pickup your very first foundation or have never found one you are satisfied with, I highly recommend you check this one out.
