Clarins Face Make-Up Ever Matte Review

When it comes to foundation, I have a long list of demands for the product I choose to put on my face. With all of the time and effort put into my skincare routine, I’m not going to let a sub-par foundation ruin the look of my skin. Because I have combination skin and large pores, I look for oil-free, pore-minimising, and mattifying formulas when testing out foundations. I also prefer foundation that is non-comedogenic. Non-comedogenic means that a product is formulated to not  cause blocked pores. One example of a foundation that meets my needs is Clarins Face Make-Up Ever Matte Pore-Minimising Mattifying Foundation SPF 15. It has 2 of my musts listed right in its name!

Clarins Ever Matte SPF 15 Oil-Free Skin Balancing Foundation

In addition to what I already mentioned above, this foundation is also skin-balancing. Glowing is the big makeup trend of the moment, but being shiny is not. There is a difference! This foundation will prevent an oily, greasy look from developing throughout the day, letting your highlighter be the only thing that makes your skin sparkle and shine.

I received this foundation from, and that is where it can be purchased.

Depending on what you’re already using, this face makeup could become a permanent fixture in your makeup bag. Since it includes SPF, be sure to use this in the morning on a daily basis after moisturizing.

Showing off the makeup look I created with this skin balancing, pore-minimising, and mattifying foundation!

Being the #1 high-end beauty brand in France and Europe, you can and should expect nothing but the best when purchasing Clarins products. I’m pleased to say that this face make-up is no exception. It has a pleasant floral scent that isn’t overwhelming. This makeup gives your face a balanced, flawless look. It’s pretty impressive!

Oil Free Pore Minimising Skin Balancing Foundation has a great price on this foundation, Clarins Face Make-Up Ever Matte can be purchased for $26.53. Other sellers have this foundation listed for upwards of $40.00.

Bottom Line: After using this foundation, my face had a matte finish, as promised, that lasted throughout the day. I’m really pleased with this makeup and the fact that it delivers on all of its promises.

    You’re skin looks beautiful with this foundation. It’s not really the foundation I’d personally go for, but then again, I have mixed to dry skin… xoxo Sarah

      Thank you! Yeah, it’s definitely not for mixed to dry skin, but Clarins probably makes another formula that would work better for you!
