The very first beauty products that my Mama allowed me to use were from Clinique and she used their products until the day she died. So I have always had a special affection for the brand. But over the years, I drifted away. For the past five years, I have been an Urban Decay Naked Foundation gal. That is, until today, when I discovered what I consider the perfect foundation at the Clinique counter at Saks Fifth Avenue – the BIY™ Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops.
These magical drops allow you to use whatever moisturizer you want as the base for your foundation. Use one for an almost bare face, two for medium coverage and three drops for fuller coverage. And that’s it. I love the super smart simplicity of this idea, the ease of use and the versatility. It is wonderful and again smart, that these drops were created to use with Clinique moisturizers or any other brand you prefer. The drops come in 12 shades and take on the characteristics of your moisturizer – either matte or dewy – creating a fresh face without caking or heaviness. I love these drops and they are a must-have in every beauty cabinet.
