Guest Review: Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup

A few weeks ago I was sent as a sample of the new Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup (in the wrong shade). A number of you offered your services to road test it for me and Lucy, writer of Beauty and the Blogger, was randomly chosen to put it through its paces and see how it performed . Here, she shares her thoughts on it.

"My skin has been so dire lately that I was pleased to find out that I’d been picked  to review this foundation. 

It has a strange chemically smell (which I put down to the spot-fighting ingredients) and, quite a cakey look  on me once applied – it definitely highlights any dry areas on your skin though it’s actually aimed at oily skin so it’s probably not really for my skin type. 

It gave good coverage (covered everything I needed to) and lasted for a good 9 hours without needing to be reapplied.  Despite the cakiness around my nose this foundation made me look fresh and awake and didn’t need powder or anything over the top. I’m not sure if this foundation has SPF in it, I’m tempted to think not as I can’t find anything that refers to SPF about it, it is oil-free though.

 I had to give up after a week as I really really felt it was drying my skin out too much.  It didn’t do much in terms of reducing the number of spots I have but it definitely did dry them out quicker,  it didn’t reduce redness or soreness or anything like that though.

Overall, this foundation wasn’t the right one for me but if you have oily or very oily skin and break out as a result, I think this would be the foundation for you – good coverage, oil-fighting and dries up blemishes".

For more information on this foundation, check it out on the Clinique website.

I bought this foundation for my sister as she has really blemish prone skin and usually always has one or two fairly large, red blemishes [or spots] - She's been using it for around 2 weeks now, not every day, but i'd say 4-5 out of a week and honestly it has done absolute wonders!

Her skin is totally blemish free and looks amazingly radiant, everyone has been commenting and giving her compliments - It's really boosted her self confidence :)

She does have quite an oily t-zone so maybe that's why it has worked quite well for her [not really any dry skin]

Thought i'd just share this little insight heh
