The key to building anything starts with a great foundation and base. When it comes to the face, the foundation sets the canvas for the rest of my makeup so finding the right product is crucial. I have three requirements when it comes to foundation. I want something lightweight for everyday wear, yet buildable for when I have blemishes to cover. I need a product that is long-wearing so I don't need to reapply throughout the day. I have combination skin, so an oil-free formulation is ideal.

After being introduced to Clinique's Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF15 Foundation, I was instantly blown away by the formulation. I had tested it on my hand when I first received it in the mail and could not wait to wear it on my face. The foundation is super lightweight, yet buildable (check!) and can be applied with your fingertips or brush. I prefer to use a brush and found that a little product goes a long way.

The Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF15 Foundation is an oil-free (check!) liquid foundation that adds moisture and subtracts oil to the areas that need it (say goodbye to a shiny t-zone). How smart is that? Because of this, it left me with a smooth, natural look and a silky finish with amazing coverage. It lasted all day, and when I say all day, I mean ALL. DAY. I wore it in Las Vegas for an all-day music festival and did not need to reapply at all (check!). Not only does it meet all my requirements, but it comes in a plethora of shades so there's no need to mix and match to get the perfect color.

  2. I don't really wear foundation, but when I saw this product, it made me want to try it. I have the same skin type as you and this balanced foundation seems like a great match. Will have to pick it up. :)
