Today I tell you my first impressions on a couple of foundation samples I received: the L’Oréal Paris Accord Parfait the Clinique Beyond Perfecting and the Sephora Teint Infusion.
Let’s find out what I think about these foundations and… would I buy the fullsize version?
Sample: L’Oréal Paris – Accord Parfait foundation
First impression? Well the colour was just way too dark for me (ambre doré) so when I started to use it, my skin looked unnatural, but I kept on blending and eventually it came out alright. Anyway, this foundation comes in 21 different shades, so there should be a shade that fits my complexion! This foundation is light in consistency, blends in really well and doesn’t sit in any creases. It stayed put all day.
To buy or not to buy? I’ve still got some different foundations in my bathroom cabinet, but when I need to buy a new one, I think I will give this one a try!
Sample: Clinique – Beyond perfecting
First impression? The colour of the sample was ‘ivory’ but this was so much darker than what you’d expect when your foundation is called ‘ivory’!
I put on a tiny bit and blended it in really well, so it wasn’t too dark on my skin. This foundation felt a bit ‘dry’.
To buy or not to buy? I wasn’t particularly wowed by this foundation, so I won’t buy it.
Sample: Sephora – Teint infusion
First impression? This sample contained 2 shades: 14 (soft beige) and 21 (petal). I used the darker one (petal) on a night out, whereas the lighter one (soft beige) I used on a day to work. This foundation really ‘infuses’ with the skin. Its consistency is really light and blended into my skin perfectly. The foundation felt very lightweight and evened out my complexion.
To buy or not to buy? I probably won’t buy this foundation as we don’t have a Sephora in Belgium, but I can recommend this foundation for those who want a very natural finish
Have you ever used one of these foundations? Let me know your thoughts!
