The foundation sounded very promising considering it was oil free and made with natural ingredients. When I tried it on my hand it was very smooth and seemed to even out my skin beautifully. I tried it on my face a couple of days later and I wasn't extremely impressed. It wasn't a bad foundation by any means and depending on your skin type, you may love it! Here's why I didn't like it. I am very acne-prone with some acne scarring and discoloration. This foundation is very light which I love but it was too light to really cover these imperfections. It glides on very smooth and feels airy on my face which is a huge plus but I'm all about a light yet full coverage foundation that makes my skin look airbrushed.
The most airbrushed I have ever gotten my skin with a foundation was either Estee Lauder Double Wear or Revlon Photo Ready. The problem with these foundations is that they are heavy and they clog my pores and cause acne breakouts. Boo!
I decided to return the Sue Devitt foundation after wearing it for about a week and a half. It felt great on my skin but just wasn't giving me the coverage that I long for. Here is where we cue Clinique!
I have a love/hate relationship with Clinique. I love their fragrances, free gifts, gel makeup remover, and moisturizer. I hate their skin care! I have tried the 3 step and the Acne Solutions and I hated both. They just aren't for my skin I suppose. I was skeptical when I read about Clinique's new Acne Solutions foundation on a fellow blogger's post. Check her out at http://alpha-blonde.blogspot.com/.
She claimed it was wonderful and light and full coverage and oil free and non pore clogging. Well, that got me interested of course! I decided to stop by the mall after work and have the lady at the Clinique counter put it on me and I would decide for myself. Well...I am officially obsessed with this foundation now!! It is soooooo very light and airy but yet it covers extremely well. I don't even have to use a concealer which is absolutely CRAZY for me because I always need a concealer. Also, it dries matte and just looks so beautiful. I am wearing it in this picture where I dressed up as Cher.
While I was in the chair at the Clinique counter, the lady wanted to do a complete makeup application and of course I didn't mind! She wanted to try out all their new products and all of her favorite ones. I was able to try quite a few things but there is one other thing that I absolutely fell in love with. Their bronzer. It's called Almost Bronzer and the shade I love is the 01 Light/Medium. It has 2 colors side by side that you can use seperately or together. I use them together and it is such a beautiful bronzey brown color that goes just fine with my light skin. It makes me look like I just got back from the beach. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
If ya'll have been looking for a great light on your face but full coverage foundation that won't clog your pores or a new bronzer, you have to try these out!! Let me know how you like them!
