I have been using Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15 as my foundation (in between trying a bazillion other foundations as part of my job) ever since I first tried it nearly 2 years ago and it is truly one of my absolute faves. But I just realised that I have never done a full review, and Clinique have a big focus on foundations right now, so I thought this might be useful.

I use the Clinique Even Better Makeup in shade 05 Neutral:

And here it is on my skin! I love it because it has amazingly buidable coverage that evens out my skin tone, and really brightens my complexion. The best thing is that it doesn’t really look like I am wearing makeup and contains ingredients which work to break down pigmentation, which is one of my skin issues.

Here a swatch of Clinique Even Better Makeup in shade 05 Neutral for you to have a look at:

 And here it is blended out (see the freckles disappear! – note this is quite a lot of foundation for such a small area so the coverage is high):

I love the versatility of this foundation. You can use it really lightly for a sheer bare skin effect, or build it up for a super flawless finish. This coupled with the fact that it is a treatment makeup designed to tackle hyper-pigmentation makes me very happy indeed – especially when I scroll back up and look at the first pic and not the one above!!

  1. Hi! It is a really nice foundation, but do you think that shade 05 is right for you? I have a very similar complexion, and I usually use Even Better in shade 03, or is this formula lighter than the original Even Better?
