*If you thought Clinique was just skincare think again. Clinique do some amazing cosmetics and this foundation is my new best friend. After using ”Estee Lauder double wear” for years, I wanted to try something different. Usually I would only wear a heavy coverage foundation on an evening but this feels so light on the skin which is surprising as the foundation covers amazingly well. It also suits my oily complexion and does not melt off or go shiny. A little goes a long way and is used as a concealer too. My only complaint would be the bottle, I hope the wand is bendy enough to scoop out any last foundation when i’m running out, however only time will tell. This foundation is available online here or Tried and Tested FB members pop into House of Fraser Intu Metro Centre get matched up and try a sample before you buy.

*Another Clinique customer favorite. We have seen the cream foundation in this range which was impressive on my oily skin so it was time to try the powder. My powder is the neutral shade and its great on its own or on top of a light cream foundation if you would like a heavier look by night. This contains no oil so is perfect for my oil slick skin. Personally I prefer the cream foundation in this range, however I know there are lots of ladies prefer a powder and this is nice. Its lightweight, lasts and does not clog pores. Great for oily skin like mine and great to carry being in a compact to blot with on a night out. This product is available online here or if you are local to Newcastle be sure to pop into House of Fraser Intu Metro Centre, to have a try, mention Tried and Tested FB and get well looked after.

*This has got me converted!!! No good if you like a heavy look but if like me you love the luminous, soft, dewy skin look then you will LOVE it..amazing colour match too as I have ridiculous yellow tones to my skin so matching can sometimes be tricky.
