I bought this Clinique Even Better Compact Makeup in 18 Sand when I was looking for a CC cream. This foundation is a “my skin but better” product. I apply the cream using the sponge, only to the areas which need coverage then blend the product out using the other side of the sponge for a naturally flawless looking finish. This is a perfect colour match to blend the lighter parts of my face into the darker parts. It is much better than having to buy two foundation shades. I guess I’m lucky that I have quite clear skin.

This is a crème to powder product so it glides on like a dream and is very easy to blend. It gives a slightly dewy finish rather than matte which I prefer.

I was told this is good for combination skin. I’m not too sure about that. I have no problems with my dry skin but it really can’t cope with my oily nose. Despite being told it controls oil, it doesn’t for me. It just slides off my nose so I have to use power on my nose. If it was not for that, this would have been my perfect foundation so the search will continue!

As you can see I have hit the pan. I intend to use all of this up because apart from the annoying oil thing, this is great for dry skin which is my main complaint, and it looks so natural.
