clinique's beyond perfecting foundation + concealer has a doe foot applicator! at first i found this puzzling (just rub the doe foot all over my face, or what?) -- but now that i have my application strategy down, i love it. the trick is i apply the doe foot directly to areas where i want concealer-like coverage (under eyes, sides of nose), then blend out with fingers for lighter foundation-like coverage elsewhere.
for me a foundation has to be lightweight to get in my daily rotation, and clinique is the master of creating formulas that feel like nothing on the skin. this newest formula is no except, light as air. better yet it's designed to adapt to skin's needs, absorbing oil or adding hydration accordingly, depending on whether it hits a shiny or a dry patch. plus, it has a 12 hour wear time.
available in 20 shades, i wear fair. $27 at clinique.com.
