Clinique: Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer

cliniqueCollage

Moja logika je sledeča: če se že ličim, potem rada prekrijem vse napake. In ker imam zadnje čase grozne težave s kožo, potrebujem nekaj bolj prekrivnega, kot mi je to nudil Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum puder. Tale puder sem videla pri mnogih vlogerkah, ki so ga vse pohvalile in sem se odločila, da ga poskusim.

My logic is as follows: if I’m already putting make-up on, then I want to cover everything. And because I have been having terrible skin problems recently, I need something with more coverage, than my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation was giving me. I saw this foundation in a lot of beauty vlogs, and because everyone was praising it, I decided to try it out.

Puder je v stekleni embalaži z aplikatorjem na gobico, podobno kot so korektorji, le da je tukaj aplikator veliko večji, ter z belim napisom. Meni je embalaža všeč, saj je učinkovita, čeprav imam še vedno najraje embalaže s pumpico. Zanima me kako učinkovita bo ta, ko bom imela še čisto malo produkta notri. A o tem ko pridemo do tega.

The foundation is in a glass container with white lettering and a doe foot applicator, similar like in concealers, just that the applicator here is much bigger. I like the packaging, because it’s effective, although I prefer to have a pump. I do wonder how effective this packaging will be, when there’s almost no product in it. But I’ll worry about that when I’ll need to.

Imam odtenek je 02 Alabaster, ki je zame malenkost pretemen oziroma pretopel. Izbira odtenkov pri nas, je po mojem mnenju obupna. Tiste, ki imate izredno svetlo kožo boste težko prišle do svojega odtenka. Jaz ga ponavadi pri bradi zmešam z drugim, svetlejšim, pudrom, tako da ni taka razlika med vratom in obrazom. Sama bi potrebovala pol odtenka svetlejši puder z neutralnim podtonom. A tega žal ni, saj svetlejšega od tega pri nas nisem našla, čeprav je na uradni strani veliko več odtenkov na izbiro.

I have the shade 02 Alabaster, which is a bit too dark, warm for me. The shade selection is in my opinion terrible. If you have very light skin, you’ll have a difficult time to match your shade. I usually mix this one with a lighter one at the chin, so there’s not a big difference between the face and neck. I myself would need half a shade lighter foundation with a neutral undertone. But I haven’t found a lighter shade than this one in our stores, although there’s many more shades to pick from on the official website.

Tekoči puder nanesem direktno na obraz z aplikatorjem. Ponavadi aplikator namočim 3x za cel obraz. Res je, da je čisto malo produkta dovolj za cel obraz, ampak jaz pač rada pretiravam. 😉 Puder je izredno prekriven, tako da so tudi najhujši izbruhi prekriti. Prekrivnost lahko povečate z dodatnim nanosom produkta. Produkt je precej gost. Na začetku sem ga razmazovala z Beauty Blenderjem a mi izgled ni bil všeč, zato sem poskusila s čopičem in sedaj ne uporabljam več drugega. Prekrivnost s čopičem je prav tako večja, kot z gobico.

I apply the foundation directly to the face with the applicator. I usually dip the applicator 3x in the foundation, for the whole face. It’s true, that a little goes a long way, but I like to exaggerate. 😉 The foundation has a really great (full) coverage, so even the worst outbreaks are covered. The coverage can be increased by additional application of the product. The product is pretty thick. In the beginning I blended the foundation with the Beauty Blender, but I didn’t like the look, so I tried with a brush and now I don’t use anything else. The coverage with the brush is much better.

Puder je opazen na koži. Ni eden tistih, ki se zlijejo v kožo in je, kot da nič nimaš na obrazu a vseeno ne pušča težkega občutka na koži. Jaz ga fiksiram s pudrom v prahu, saj le-ta ni mat. Zdi se mi, da se relativno hitro porablja, ampak spet je to odvisno od tega, koliko ga nanesete. Jaz ga nanesem veliko. Moram opozoriti, da je viden bel odsev, pri slikanju z bliskavico.

The foundation is visible on the skin. It’s not one of those, that blends into the skin and it’s like you have nothing on your face, but it still doesn’t leave a heavy feeling on the skin. I set it with a loose powder, because it’s not fully matte. I do feel that I’m using it up quite fast, but again it depends on how much you apply. I do apply a lot. I have to point out that there is white cast/flash back, when photographing with flash.

Končni izgled. / Finished look.

S pudrom sem zadovoljna, najbolj zaradi prekrivnosti in obstojnosti, saj se ne razmazuje ali bledi. Veliko bolj zadovoljna bi bila, če bi lahko dobila kakšen svetlejši odtenek. Sama sem ga kupila v Mullerju v Avstriji in zadnj odštela okoli 32€. Pri nas v Mullerju boste zanj odštele 38€, v Douglasu (Avstrija) 34€, v Travel Free shopu pa le 27€. Razlike v ceni so ogromne in če le imate možnost, priporočam nakup v Avstriji oziroma v TF shopu.

I am satisfied with the foundation, mostly because of the coverage and the longevity, because it doesn’t smudge or fade. I would be a lot happier though if I could get a lighter shade. I bought it in Muller in Austria and paid around 32€ for it. In Slovenia in Muller you will pay 38€, in Douglas (Austria) 34€, in Travel Free shop only 27€. Price differences are huge and if you have the chance, I recommend buying it in Austria or in the TF shop.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

P.s.: Upam, da so vas moje fotke nasmejale. 😀 / I hope my photos made you laugh. 😀
