Clarins Ever Matte Foundation SPF 15

Spring isn’t here but in makeup land it’s somewhat washed up and over. I think by now we are all ready for Summer Collections.


As Summer nears we also all start looking for ways to mattify our skin and keep the oilies at bay or you may be unlucky enough to have to deal with oily skin everyday but no worries you’ll age slower, be thankful for oily skin!

Either way, mattifying for Summer or for all time, Clarins new Every Matte Foundation might just be your next foundation pick!

This one stops shine with an oil free formula and a matte finish that promises hours of beautiful wear and it also promises to refine and tighten up pores. Hmmm! Heavy promises my friends.

It’s available in nine shades for $32 and on counters now at Nordstrom and Nordstrom.com


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I may. I wonder what their coverage claim is. I need medium-full coverage.

    I’ve never tried a Clarins product – do they offer samples like other high-end brands?

    Oh, thanks for the heads up, Muse. I’m always on the search for a matte foundation. I havent found one yet that keeps me matte, even in the winter in the Midwest, all day. Do you know if they have this yet at Clarins counters outside of Nordstrom?

    • the Muse

      haven’t seen it anywhere else yet susan but def call local counters and see ;-D ya never know, it varies. I saw at Nordstrom but didn’t at Macys.

    My head is spinning. I still haven’t updated myself fully on the Spring collection yet!

    I have really dry skin so I’m looking forward to a bit of shine in the Summer! <– I know I'm crazy….

    you are giving me Clarins lemmings Musey! I may just need to try this and the lippies too; curses, foiled again!!

    I live for Clarins Everlasting Foundation for summer. The teensiest amount buffed into the skin with a stippling brush = summer skin perfection. I’m out in the 110-115 degree heat and it doesn’t break up and looks perfect 10-12hrs later after pouring sweat.

    I’m sure the Matte will be just as fabulous!

    I just bought this last week at Macys. I used to use Clarins years ago but, I still use their primer. I was impressed with the formula and it smells great like cucumbers nice & fresh. It covers well and keeps my oily skin looking great. They used the matte powder that goes with the collection on me it lasted all day. I’ll have to buy it later. I use the cover FX finishing powder & works but, the clarins seemed to last longer on me. Oh, and its true about oily skin i’m gonna be 40 this year have been told recently that I look 27 by the clarins lady she didn’t believe me till I showed her my licence to pay w/ a CC. So oily skin rocks in my opinion. Thanks so much I love your honesty on all the items you review and help me to make educated decisions on my product buying. So thanks for doing a great job.
