New HG Summer Product - Clinique Almost Makeup
I completely forgot I had this product and when I first got it, I never really used it. I was always a full coverage, full face kinda girl but I've had such problems with acne/blemishes on my skin. Now, I've realised how much better it looks, in the short and long term, when I wear a light foundation. So after some pondering I thought I would give this product a go!
I love the idea of tinted moisturisers in the summer but I'm far too pale and far too oily for them to work for me. For me, this product is a great compromise. It has a good choice of fairer shades [I'm 09 Neutral Fair], its oil free and apparently waterproof, though this I am a little skeptical on. It also has the added bonus of an SPF 15, perfect for summer. [If you are out in strong sun please use extra sun protection ladies!]
This product is not matte, but its doesn't 'glow' so its suitable for all skin types, and looks extremely natural. It doesn't shimmer or glitter [I hate glittery faces - YUCK] It just effortlessly evens out your skin tone. I like to apply with my fingers and then finish blending with a damp sponge. Its a sheer coverage so it won't cover lots of blemishes, but I like the look of a light foundation combined with a good concealer. I would also really recommend this for mature skin. I use it on my mum and she looks fab!
Its widely available in the UK & US, and its only £20 for 45ml. [Nars Sheer Glow is £29 for 30ml] I like the packaging, but it doesn't blow me away. Its just nice and simple. The product simply squeezes out the tube. Don't forget unlike a tinted moisturiser, this product will not add tan. So if your looking for that 'bronzed goddess' look, try adding a creme bronzer.
Hope you find this useful ladies,
