I’m always on the lookout for new foundations to try since that’s the one beauty product I use the most! I was so excited to see one of my old favorites, Even Better Foundation by Clinique come out with a glowy version of the exact same thing! This one has the same SPF 15 and the same dark spot correcting qualities as the original formula. Even Better came out while I was in college and it was my holy grail foundation for years. I forgot about it for a long time when I started blogging and trying different things. I am quickly remembering what all the hype was about as I try Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup.
While the original formula was moderate coverage, this one is sheer to moderate, and definitely buildable. I have sensitive, dry skin and don’t need a ton of coverage but I have some redness and dark spots to cover. There is a huge range of shades for every skin tone, and as per usual, I match best with a light shade in the neutral category. I prefer my foundations don’t lean pink or yellow on me so neutral is the way to go! Alabaster is a cool neutral in the very fair shade range and is a perfect match for me.
The formula is moisturizing and dewy and contains some subtle luminizing pigments. I haven’t noticed any actual glitter or even glimmer at all; it comes across as a very subtle and lit-from-within glow. It gives great coverage and is long wearing. I don’t even need to set it, though sometimes I do anyway. I like to wear a concealer under my eyes and this formula plays nicely with many of my favorites. Right now, I’m enjoying the Line Smoothing Concealer in Moderately Fair.
From different angles you can see how nicely this wears. It’s fresh, natural, and evens out my skin tone. I’d say it’s my current favorite foundation choice for a lit-from-within glow. What are you using right now? Leave me a comment and tell me your favorite!
