Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer vs. Dark Spots

I love finding solutions to everyday beauty woes, even when they aren’t my own.  This is where My Friend Reviews come in.  Since we all have different skin types, this will be a feature where I can explore products that I wouldn’t normally use myself. I’ll include products I’ve recommended to friends (either because I love them or think they will) and items that have been recommended to me.  When our beauty world and knowledge gets bigger, beautiful things can happen!

Up first is my lovely sister-in-law, Kristi, who was looking for a good concealer/foundation to cover up dark spots on her face.  When I tried the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer I thought I hit a gold mine. It serves both functions in a lightweight full coverage foundation formula.  Here’s Kristi’s take:

Pros- goes on smoothly and you do not need a lot of the product as it blends nicely. Covers dark spots without looking like you have heavy foundation on. Only $27.

Cons-not many shades to choose from if you have fair to med skin tone.
