Makeup day - a new foundation discovery

I am slightly obsessed with foundation, as I told you before. Much because I still can´t get over that I waited so long to start wearing foundation and taking it seriously. It makes a great difference I think, even for those with almost flawless skin. Well, I sort of make up for that lack of foundation today...
As much as I love a liquid foundation I do find myself drawn to powder ones more and more. Mainly because it is so much easier to apply and quicker in the morning. I first tried the classic one, Bare Minerals. It was absolutely ok, although I found it too dry for me, being 40. That lead me to Mac's creamy compact mineral foundation which is an ok one, but I won´t buy it again. So I am so happy to have found the new Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation. You know I'm a big fan of many of Clarins products, so trying this was a must. It didn´t disapoint. The applying is easy and the loose powder almost melts into your skin, looking velvety. It comes in ten differents shades so choose carefully. I also find it staying on great during day, I even went to the gym in the evening (yes, I do excersise with makeup, I´m happy to have the time to just get there:) As Clarins themselves says about this product: "Silky, loose powder foundation—with light-reflecting pigments, minerals and plant extracts—creates a radiant matte finish and a natural, bare skin effect." I totally agree. If you want a matte finish and great coverage this does the trick. There have never been so many great foundations on the market as today, and this is one of the new and really good ones I would say.
Have a beautiful WEDNESDAY!
