Make-up Versus | Clinique Acne Solution VS Clinique Even Better Glow.

Follow




In my last post in the make-up versus category i've talk about Nars cosmetics and two of their Tinted moisturizers but also about the concealers. Today i'm gonna talk about two products from Clinique. I really never give it a go to Clinique Makeup, firstly because their is not enough lighter/Fair shades for me in my opinion. I do have tried a lot of skincare products but not that much about makeup, but I've to say i'm falling slightly in love with clinique makeup recently. The new mascara is legit THAAA BOMB, if you like the truly waterproof from Clarins, but you think it's a pain in the ass to remove, you're gonna falling in love with the new HIGH IMPACT LASH ELEVATING MASCARA, it's still a pain in the ass to remove, but a little less than the Clarins, because it's not waterproof/water-resistant mascara. And more recently i've tried the Easy Pen Liner, i've heard a lot of goof reviews about it, and i've to say i'm totally impressed by this eye-liner who have a nice plastic brush tip applicator, in my opinion it's even better than the KVD eyeliner (i'm not a massive fan of this one, it's a good one, but heeaaann.. i'm not surprised by it) 




Let's get start about the Acne solution Liquid Make-up foundation, i've this one in the shade 01 Fresh alabaster, first of all the shade is great, it's not the best match but it's a good one considering than the shade matching with clinique foundation is really hard to do. A natural looking foundation which is not irritating, an oil-free formula, make-up blends away blemishes neutralize redness, medicated ingredients helps to treat existing breakout and keep from coming back. The Fresh Alabaster shade have a cool neutral undertone, with a matte finish and also a moderate coverage (light to medium) 

As you know i do not have an acne prone skin, but a normal to dry skin-type, i do have blemishes sometimes obviously (i'm human) and it's especially when i try a product with a lot of silicone (dimethicone), or when i'm in this time of the month or just when i don't sleep enough. So i love to use this foundation when i've a bad skin day, i do obviously use a really good moisturizer and a good primer underneath, because a matte finish and a long wearing formula on a normal to dry skin can accentuate the dry patches. For the undertone problem, to be honest with you it's not that bad you know it's just a little bit to much pink, but i love to use the anti-redness solution powder which is a nice thin yellow powder, it doesn't give coverage nor mattifying the skin (which is perfect for my skin type), but it helps to have a little more yellow to my face. 

The Scent of it, is quite heavy, because of the salicylic acid that you have inside of it and it's because of this ingredient that the foundation can helps your skin to remove blemishes. But i can't really tell you how effective it is, because salicylic acid can work or not on your face it's like retinoid, this is totally a personal ingredient that can work or not, on me it works but i do not have acne (but open pores, and sometimes a little pimple who loves to share with me a journey in my life) 





This is the NEW baby from clinique, i think it was released around a couple of months ago now, i got the shade WN04 (bone), because i'm yellow and pale as hell (for reference i'm an NC10 for M.A.C foundations and Siberia for Nars Sheer Glow), this one it's a go to for me especially for my skin type, i love the fact than in most of the clinique foundations you have skincare ingredients.  This is a moisturizing foundation instantly creates a natural radiance with subtle luminizing pigments. Wear it every day and over time bare skin glows on its own, thanks to vitamin C. Broad spectrum SPF 15 helps prevent future dark spots. Long-wearing, oil-free.

This product have a light to a medium coverage, it's the perfect foundation for everyday especially if you don't like the super full coverage foundation, it gives you a nice dewy finish and it works perfectly for those who are like me with a normal to dry skin-type.  This  is definitely one i love to use on a normal/good day face, so this couple of month i do have use this one a little bit more than the Anti-blemish solutions, and i've to say that i can already notice that some of my old scares are less visible,  but because i do have more freckles than scars (maybe 5-6 max) my skin isn't have to be 100% trust, i'm not perfect for this type of test, it's like the acne blemish solution foundation , because of my skin-type i can't tell you, how the product is really effective. 




As you can see the two shades are similar but the 01 Fresh Alabaster is more pink than the WN04 Bone the even better glow have a better match for me but the Anti-blemish shade works also well, i do not have any problem of oxydation also. I choose to have the swatches on a white paper now because i think it's easier for you to swatch also on a white paper your favorite foundation with your perfect match and to compare it with this two shades here. Also the Even Better range have a little bit more shades and it's easier to find your match with your undertone because WN (Warm Neutral undertone) CN  (Cool Neutral undertone) .

As you know in my versus blogpost their is no looser or winner just products who works differently for different skin-types and occasions and also what you like the most in a makeup product. 


So i hope this blogpost was helpful! see ya next time.

Peace out, Love ♥️🖤
