Clinique Superbalanced foundation

 Ive been on the look out for some new foundation for a while now...i have a slightly oily Tzone and dryish cheeks so i often have the issue of all the moisture being sucked from the foundation around my cheeks and its not a good look....i tried tinted moisturiser which i do like and works very well but i prefer a little more coverage....soo as i was already going to buy some mascara i asked the lovely lady at the Clinique counter for some advice on what would be best for my skin so i went for the Superbalanced foundation.

They Say...The great equaliser for combination skin. Provides moisture and absorbs oil where needed. Minimises appearance of fine lines.Helps protect skin from environmental damage. Contains anti-irritants and antioxidants. Water resistant. Non-acnegenic and oil-free. Ophthalmologist tested.
The colour i purchased is Fair which i believe is the second lightest colour
             
             (Before after only 3 hours sleep!!) (After with a light concealer coverage & loose setting powder ontop)


At £20.48 for 30ml of product ...which is the same amount as Macs studio fix fluid for roughly £1 more....it is what i would class as a little pricey as im on a limited budget every week but a little goes a long way which is always good!
Overall i can safely say i am very impressed, it gives a great amount of coverage and can easily be built up while having that barely there super light feeling on my skin which is great as i hate anything that feels heavy/cakey!! 
To pick one fault with this would be that it is in a glass bottle and has no pump so it can be a tad messy and when you think its empty theres always some that lines the edge of the bottle that is impossible to remove :(

I finished off the face with a slick of eyeliner, mascara, bronzer and Viva glam Cyndi lipglass... a very simple & easy every day look.
