When it comes to makeup, foundation is my jam. And while I try to stay faithful to my brands of choice, there are times where I become excited at the idea of branching out. Yesterday, I opted to explore the shelves of my local Sephora for the opportunity to try something different. After running up and down the aisles I finally landed on Clinique, it was within my price range and it just so happened to be a brand that I recognized, but never really considered when it came to foundation. So I went for it.
As a black girl, one of the scariest things about buying foundation is finding my true shade. And I’m not talking a color that simply matches my skin tone, but a shade that brightens and highlights my face as the formula naturally blends with my skin. After all, makeup is all about enhancing what is already there.
28 Clove is the shade that I chose. And one cool thing about this foundation is that it comes with a wand inserted into the bottle. Genius! It’s the perfect way to control how much liquid you actually want to use, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that.
After I applied the foundation I found that it blended perfectly with this blending brush from e.l.f.
I chose to begin the makeup journey with a e.l.f primer.
And voila! I think it brightens and blends perfectly and I’m happy to add it to my rotation of makeup brands for my go to foundation.
Check out my “try on” of this foundation 🙂
