Clinique super balanced makeup teint foundation 09 sand

Hello beautiful ladies!

Today I am going to review a foundation from clinique. Well to start with I have combination to oily skin. I have a dusky to medium skin tone which breaks out quite rarely and gets oily at my T-zone.
I must say that I have tried a number of foundations before this one, out of which some of them scored well and some didnt. It took me a lot of time (actually years) to figure out the right type of foundation for my skin tone. I did a huge research on foundations over the years that I will be able to write a new post about finding the right type of foundation for your skin. So watch out for my future posts.
Coming back to the foundation, since I was on a foundation hunt for years and one day I happened to visit the clinique store and experimented a few shades ans spoke with the SA and found this foundation apt for my skin. I used this foundation for about at least 10 times and tried it blending differently and layering differently every time.

This is a matte foundation and comes in a frosty glass bottle with no nozzle as such which is a huge disadvantage because one has to be very careful taking out the correct amount of foundation on your hands. Next is that the bottle becomes messy due to the open cap. 
Experience on the product:
It is a light weight, medium coverage foundation which leaves no white cast on your face and doesn’t feel heavy on your skin. It also gives a glowing skin when applied for the first few hours. But this foundation tends to leave my skin oily after some time and require frequent touch ups due to the oiling. It made my oily T-zone even more oily and I had to touch up with a compact every half an hour or one hour. And adding to this it does not have any SPF in it. 
After blending the product
Thereby, this foundation is NOT recommended for day time or summers as it leaves you with an oily skin and if you are going out during summers, sunscreen is a must. I finally recommend this to dry skin ladies and those who have oily skin better stay away.
Final Verdict:
I would highly recommend this foundation to those with dry to normal skin and not for those with oily skin because this makes your skin even more oilier. It gives a glowing face and since is light-weight the foundation is easy to blend. Overall, I would recommend for dry skin beauties!
1. Light-weight foundation
2. Dewy, glowing finish
3. Does not leave a white cast
1. Makes skin oily especially on the T-zone.
2. Packaging – absence of nozzle which makes it difficult to dispense the product
3. No SPF
Overall rating:
Meet you all with another interesting post. Bye!
