From tinted moisturisers to BB and CC creams, when it comes to everyday foundation, many of us shy away from a heavier base but still want the coverage. Bridging the gap between a sheer base and flawless finish, Clinique’s game-changing Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops are the customisable foundation drops beauty editors are falling over themselves to get their hands on.
The concept… Somewhere between a foundation and tinted moisturiser, Clinique’s hot-off-the-press Pigment Drops are the beauty product we’ve been waiting for. A two-phase formula packed with a concentration of pure pigments, each squeeze dispenses a thin drop of colour that can be mixed with your moisturiser for a bespoke, sheer veil of complexion-perfecting colour. The more you use, the more coverage you get – it’s as simple as that.
Sounds good – so how exactly does it work? The clever formula takes on the finish of the moisturiser you blend it with, so expect a more matte finish with a mattifying cream or a dewier glow when mixed with a radiance-boosting moisturiser. Whether you’re looking for a sheer wash of colour for a no-make-up, make-up look or heavier coverage to conceal imperfections, this bespoke base has you covered.
Who’s it best suited to? Ideal for those who typically steer clear of traditional foundations for fear of looking overdone as well as those on the hunt for a warmer weather-friendly finish. Plus, the formula is available in 12 shades, spanning from light ivory to deeper tones.
Top tip: Try mixing with your serum for off-duty days or team with your SPF for beach-perfect beauty come holiday time.
