Clarins Everlasting Foundation SPF 15- Review


Clarins Everlasting Foundation model “Clarins, the skin care expert, launches EVERLASTING FOUNDATION SPF 15 $65 (AUD RRP), the long-lasting foundation that stays true for 15 hours.”

“What’s the secret? The High Fidelity System,
an invisible microfilm that ensures even coverage and 15 hours of flawless hold. The "Light Optimizing" complex captures, diffuses and amplifies light. Both ensure a radiant and flawless complexion.”

I love spending time on my makeup to get it right before I go out, I do not however enjoy frequent trips to the ladies room to make sure my ‘face’ is still on. This is exactly why I am a fan of a product that lasts, and the Clarins Everlasting Foundation does exactly that. This product was sent to me for trialing purposes and have been using it for close to two months now, (the bottle still has PLENTY left).

Personally my skin is on the drier side so I make sure I moisturise first but with this foundation I’ve actually been skipping my primer and it still lasts! Another plus to this lovely new product is that you really only need a very small amount and with that very small amount I must say it covers like a dream! As you are probably aware by now  I love a medium-full coverage foundation, I love that you can easily thin it down to get the coverage you desire. Your skin is left with a somewhat matte finish, but not dry and dead looking that can be associated with many matte foundations.Clarins Everlasting Foundation SPF 15 30ml $65

Breaking the pro’s down to point form so I don’t ramble on forever…

    Non drying formula that lasts

Triple protection against UV rays

Matte finish without looking dull

  Luxe looking packaging with pump for ease of  use and less product wastage

oh, it has a fruity fragrance! I love products with an added quirk.

Green beauty, In more ways than one….


I don’t know about you but I’m loving that more and more brands are jumping on the green bandwagon. From Ingredients to packaging its a nice to see some brands are thinking ahead,  hopefully it won’t just be a fad!

April 22nd, (today) marks Earth Day. I thought it would be only fitting to show another green beauty item, so I decided on Clarins new (and first) natural Organic Gentle Beauty Cleansing Soap.
