Clarins Everlasting Foundation | Beauty

My utterly gorgeous friend Vernia's sister works for Clarins (the lucky thing, I know) and recently she gave me a couple of samples which you know I was thrilled about. 

To be honest, I haven't really tried that many Clarins products because it's just a brand I never think to look for. I know they do fantastic skin care ranges but it's just not a brand I immediately think of for make up. The sample I received was the Everlasting Foundation which actually I think is a fairly new release. They do a great range of shades online and I've got it in Ivory 103 which is a pretty nice match actually, it has a slightly pinkier tone than the next shade up which is Nude 105. 

When I pumped it onto my hand I saw that is a very liquid foundation which isn't something I'm used to actually, most of my foundations are a thicker consistency. Once I pumped it out I had to work quite quickly with it because I didn't want it to start drying on me. I tried it with my Real Techniques foundation brush and it actually worked quite well. I was toying with the idea whether to use my Beauty Blender, but the Everlasting Foundation was just a bit too runny and I though that the sponge would probably just soak the product up too quickly. 

Clarins Everlasting foundation was actually pretty full coverage, which I wasn't expecting it to be because of it's consistency. This isn't a bad thing I just wasn't expecting it. It also leaves a dewy look on the skin which personally I prefer, it just makes my face look a little more hydrated. I think the colour match was pretty perfect for me, which I was really impressed with. 

I'm not sure how this foundation would be on oily skin, my skin is fairly normal if not a little dry and it definitely worked for me but I would imagine if I had oily skin it may not look as good. But I don't know. 

Have you tried the Clarins Everlasting Foundation out?
