Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

A very old (they don’t even make it any longer) but still in great shape foundation from Clarins (I think it’s one that’s quite sadly missed and the “replacement” product gets some pretty negative comments, usually coupled with “why did they discontinue the original….”). I don’t usually wear foundation but figured I looked so pale that I’d give this old faithful a try.

Yes, my all time favourite foundation is a Clarins one too – Everlasting foundation in the Linen shade. I just have a bit left and of course, it is d/c as well. There is no genuine replacement in this shade at all in their current range. So I get where you are coming from Mariella – so very annoying when brands do this – d/c their best products.

I used both the Everlasting and Skin Illusion foundations from Clarins. EVERYTHING I love gets discontinued! EVERYTHING!!! MAC Craving and Full Fuchsia lipsticks; The Body Shop’s Spa of the World (or whatever the name was) Brittany Coast shower gel, Kukui and Japanese Camellia body creams, the Clarins throat cream that was so good (they kept the pricier and crummier Super Restorative one, though) as well as their foundations, concealer and cleansing cream that were real “must haves” for me. They also used to make a really good eye cream that was sort of the eye counterpart to their Beauty Flash Balm. It was meant as an occasional “pick me up” for tired eyes rather than a daily moisture/eye cream but it was SO GOOD (I would use it when I had a cold and my eyes were puffy and dull and it was almost like magic). They had some wonderful longer lasting lipsticks and really great Gloss Prodige lip glosses. Sephora no longer carries a product from REN that I adored (and it’s too pricey on Amazon and I’ve no idea what the cost would be to order from REN). Seriously, if I like something and you happen to like it too, stock up because it will vanish before too long.

MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof foundation in NW30 mixed with some MAC Strobe Cream. I have found that adding a liquid highlighter or Strobe Cream cuts oxidation down significantly! That’s one of the downsides to many long wearing foundation formulas, I’ve found: oxidation that not only deepens the shade within an hour, but also turns it really orange looking. Why I don’t know.
