Foundation can be a tricky beast, but one you must tame. The base is everything in my opinion so I thought I would go through my beauty cupboard, pick out my collection of Clinique foundations that I have been switching between this year, run you through my opinions of them, when I use each of them and why.  


First up is the Chubby in the Nude Foundation stick. As you saw a few months back, I am obsessed with the chubby face range. I use the Chubby Contour and Chubby Blush on the daily so I picked up a Chubby Foundation not that long ago to try out. 

For on the go. This stick is a dream for anyone who travels or is constantly running around through the day. It is super compact, you can blend it out with your fingers, and layers easily throughout the day. 

Light Coverage. Out of the three Clinique Foundations I have this definitely has the lightest coverage. I use this to cover up redness or dark circles if I am popping out for an errand.

Just where you need it. I love to use this foundation if I am just covering up any blemishes first with concealer, than adding this for an even complexion. It keeps my skin looking really natural. 


The Superbalanced Silk is my current holy grail foundation. I have been using this non-stop since its updated release late last year.

My ideal coverage. One of the main reasons I love this foundation is its the ideal coverage for me. Moderate, not heavy but covers more than the Chubby stick. 

Silky Finish. They were not lying when they named this beauty. Since discovering this foundation I have ditched face powders for good. It leaves the skin looking hydrated but not too dewy either. It is a great base for applying your Chubby face products over the top also.

I can't feel it.  You know what I am talking about. That feeling. The foundation sitting on your face. I don't have that feeling anymore. 


Next up is the Beyond Perfecting Foundation, the crowd favourite.   

The Multi-tasker. This foundation also doubles as a concealer. After applying your foundation, take the doe-foot applicator and use a small amount to conceal any blemishes.

Oil Free. For those who need a long lasting foundation & have an oily skin type, this is the foundation for you. 

Flawless coverage. Big event or just feel like having a flawless face for the day/night? This is the one for you.

Applicator. One of my favourite things about this foundation has got to be the applicator. It is a giant doe-foot applicator and I am in love. It makes application super quick and easy. 

Throws Shade. It comes in a large range of 21 shades. Would always recommend getting some samples at a Clinique Counter to find your perfect shade match.  

I'd love to know if you have tried any of the above or what your favourite foundation for the perfect base is?
