The foundation for oily skin – Clarins Everlasting Foundation+

If I’m going through my fourth bottle of the same foundation, I think it’s safe to say it’s amazing. Clarins Everlasting Foundation is one of my all-time favorite foundations – and even though I have briefly mentioned it on my blog before, it needs a bigger spotlight.

This foundation is good in every way: it offers a great coverage, it’s easily blendable and buildable, it lasts the whole day, it looks natural and beautiful on the skin and it comes in a beautiful packaging.

Clarins Everlasting Foundation+ Review

My skin has always been a bit problematic, when it comes to foundations. I’ve found that when you put a little extra money into your foundation, it usually pays back in quality. If I compare this foundation to some drugstore foundations I have, I find that the consistency and longevity is better. I still use other foundations too, but when I want the best possible result, I grab this.

The coverage in this foundation is really good. It’s not necessarily a full-coverage, but it does hide redness, blemishes and imperfections. It doesn’t hide all of my acne scarring, but to be fair, my acne scarring is pretty bad. Even the most full-coverage foundation that I have, doesn’t hide that and even though I pack concealer on the scarring, it somehow always shows through.

The foundation comes out as a fluid. Not too thick, but not too watery either. I like to apply it with a damp sponge, that also thins it out a bit. I always apply thin layers and build it up from there. Obviously if you wanted a heavier coverage, you could use a foundation brush and pat it on. The finish of this foundation is semi-matte. It’s very natural looking and beautiful on the skin.

Even though it covers so well and lasts all day – it doesn’t dry out the skin. Besides the mattifying properties of bamboo extract, it also contains nourishing quinoa.

To sum it all up together, Clarins Everlasting Foundation is definitely made for normal to oily skin. It’s perfect for anyone, whose problems are oiliness, impurities or even acne. Or for someone with normal skin, who wants a bomb foundation.

And since we’re on the acne-topic once again, we get to the next great thing about this foundation: it doesn’t clog pores! Having mixed/oily skin, some foundations – especially full-coverage and long-lasting ones – tend to break me out. This suits my skin perfectly and I don’t have to worry about making my skin worse wearing this. So I would definitely recommend this foundation for problematic skin.

  1. Wow this sounds like such a good foundation! I love Clarins skincare but haven’t tried much of their base makeup products, I need to get a sample of this.

    1. It is! I love the packaging with Clarins makeup – they are all golden and luxurious. <3

  2. I haven’t tried this one and usually opt for true mattes, but it looks lovely. My skin is pretty oily and most foundations tend to slide around after a while, so I will look into this. How come we don’t hear about it more?

    1. This is honestly so good. I don’t know, maybe Clarins is a bigger hit in Finland? Not sure. I’ve read many reviews on Finnish beauty blogs about this. 🙂

  3. En tästä meikkivoiteesta ole muistaakseni kuullutkaan vaikka aina kirjoittelen ylös rasvoittuvalle iholle sopivia meikkivoiteita! Kuulostaa kyllä tosi hyvältä 🙂 Pitää ehdottomasti testata jossain vaiheessa. Mitä mieltä muuten olet L’oréalin Infallible 24h-Matte meikkivoiteesta? Se on ollut jo useamman vuoden oma lempparini rasvoittuvalle iholle 🙂

    1. Ehdottomasti! Hmmh, oon kuullut paljon hyvää siitä ja uskonkin sen olevan ihan tosi hyvä. Siskokin, jolla on lähes sama ihotyyppi kun mulla, tykkäs. Jostain syystä oon kuitenkin vähän vierastanut Lorealin meikkejä, ehkä siks, että tosi nuorena se oli yks niistä merkeistä mitä käytin. Ehkä miellän sen jotenkin mun teiniaikaan 😀 Lol, mutta oikeesti mun täytyy testaa toi meikkivoide jossain vaiheessa. Samoin Maybellinen Fit me matte + poreless.

  4. Mä tykkään todella paljon Everlastingin Cushionista, mutta tätä varsinaista meikkivoidetta en ole koskaan kokeillut. Näyttää sun iholla tosi hyvältä. 🙂

    1. Mä just katoin sun blogista, että olit testannu sitä. Salee ihana, kun on sukua tälle meikkivoiteelle 😀 Kiitos.

  5. Sun iholla mieletön! Mä en muista, miksi en ole tätä kokeillut. Mutta jos vaan on alkoholiton, niin voisin antaa mahdollisuuden 🙂 Mulla on se Clarinsille viime keväänä valikoimaan ilmestynyt mattameikkivoide ja se on ihastuttava! Mä nykyään ostankin vain vähän kalliimpia meikkivoiteita, jotenkin koen ne vaan paremmin toimivammiksi kuin edulliset kilpailijat. Sen eron vaan huomaa!

    1. Kiitos <3 Ja niimpä - vaikka olis kuin hyvä markettimeikkivoide, niin jotenkin sen eron huomaa kuitenkin kalliimpaan verratessa!

  6. Wow the coverage is amazing and you look gorgeous with and without! I have very dry skin so I don’t think this will be a great option for me but I completely agree that spending the extra cash on a foundation for your skin type and concerns is worth it. I haven’t tried any makeup from Clarins but this makes me want to explore a bit more from the brand.

    1. Thank you. They have foundations that are more suitable for dry skin too. But if you’re thinking of exploring the brand, you can’t go wrong with Clarins lipsticks! 🙂
