As a beauty blogger, I'm always talking about the new must have product of the moment and believe me, there are so many new fandangly things out there that I know I'll never run out of things to write about. However, let us have a little moment of silence for those products that don't get as much love as they should. The products that have been out for years and we use all the time, but get overlooked.
So today it's time to Give The Love To Forgotten Favourites. First up is one of my favourite foundations ever; Clinique Superbalanced. I feel sad that I'm calling it one of my favourites yet haven't featured it, but sure that's the point of this post.
Superbalanced is "the great equaliser for combination skin. Provides moisture and absorbs oil as needed. Minimises the appearance of fine lines." When I first bought this last year, I didn't know any of this but liked how it felt on the back of my hand. There are those times where all you need is a dab or two on the back of your hand to know something is going to be good. This was one of those times.
It's one of those foundations that looks like my skin, only better. It gives enough coverage to cover most of my blemishes but still lets my skin show through. Ain't nobody likes the mask effect. On my face, it's true to it's description and stays matte on my oily t-zone for hours, giving my dry cheeks some radiance and moisture. I'd describe it as having medium coverage but is buildable and it lasts from 7am until about 2pm before I'd need to do any touching up. Of my make up that is. Dirty minds!
