Why Clarins Everlasting Foundation+ is perfect for SA skin tones

Shades: Coffee, Nutmeg, Pecan and Chocolate

Finding a foundation to match your skin colour is often a difficult task. No matter how light or dark your skin tone, chances are that the usual seven or eight shades available on counter aren’t going to be your exact shade. But more than anyone else, women with darker skin tones tend to struggle the most.

Medium and darker skin tones are difficult to match, and because there are so many variants in different parts of the world, dark-skinned women often find that foundations leave their complexions looking dull and ashy.

Women off all ethnicities, and in all countries, want flawless cover and they want it from a product that looks natural on their skin. Clarins has taken this global concern into consideration, and when they created the Everlasting Foundation+, they worked with complexion experts from across the world, including Asian, Ethnic and Caucasian professionals. These professionals tested, evaluated and selected shades adapted to their own skin tones.

The results? The Everlasting Foundation+ range consists of 17 different shades of foundation, allowing women of all ethnicities to find a foundation suited to them. But what’s most impressive is that four of these shades were developed specifically for South African skin tones! Shades Coffee, Pecan, Nutmeg and Chocolate were created for our market and are the answer to many a woman’s make-up concerns. The shades are natural-looking and blend into the skin beautifully. Instead of making dark skins look ashy, they enhance the skin’s natural colour, leaving the complexion radiant and flawless.

In addition to giving a natural finish, Everlasting Foundation+ also helps conceal dark spots, uneven skin tone and redness – common problems that are very prominent among South African women.

If you’ve yet to find a foundation that matches your skin tone while providing flawless cover, give Clarins Everlasting Foundation+ a try and see what a difference it makes to your skin. You can get yours for R415 at Clarins counters nationwide, as well as on www.clarins.co.za.

    So true, when I wear some other shades of make-up my skin does feel dull and ashy but not with the Clarins foundation I love it.

    Im so going to try this. I have tried many different foundations and been so disappointed in them. I found one a while ago which was amazing and stuck to it but then when I went back to buy again I was told it was discontinued so my hunt began again. I bought MAC and it is awful, so runny and gives my face an oily look once I have applied. I am going to try this Clarins one asap

    Does anyone know how this foundation compares to MAC foundation? I have just started using a clarins face wash range and It is amazing so I’m thinking of using the make up range too.

    I have recently started using Clarin’s facial creams and I am truly impressed. Can’t wait to give the foundation a bash as well.

    i have just recently changed over to clarins and it the best thing about it was that i found a colour that suits me 100%. the foundation truelly does give you long wear use without caking or drying out, it doesnt melt either. i also use the concealer and it takes away any visibility of tiredness and under eye bags. its absolutely terrific and highly recommended

    I always find it really difficult to find a foundation that matches my skin tone perfectly. I’m hoping the new Clarins range will have something suited to my complexion.
