Clarins Pore Perfecting Matifying Foundation

If you’re on the lookout for a new matte foundation then stop your search here. The Clarins Pore Perfecting Matifying Foundation has a long list of reasons why it’s a must-have…

The Ingredients


Acaia Gum: Referred to as the ‘imperfection eraser’ within the formula, micropearls made from acaia gum leave skin matte, smooth and pores looking minimised.

Red Clay: This purifying ingredient is rich in silicon and iron, which helps to minimise excess sebum and keep the complexion matte.

Soft Focus Pearls: Designed to help keep the complexion radiant, soft focus pearls help to banish dullness.

Organic Salicornia Extract: Added organic salicornia extract keeps skin refreshed and hydrated, for a comfortable and long-wearing foundation result.

The Finish


The Pore Perfecting Matifying Foundation has a lightweight, mousse-like texture that melts into the skin. Easy to blend, the formula gives light coverage that is buildable and glides smoothly over imperfections, leaving a soft and blurred finish that is radiant yet matte.

The Shades


01 Nude Ivory – The lightest shade in the line-up, 01 Nude Ivory will suit fair skin tones with a yellow undertone.

02 Nude Beige –  With a slightly pink tone, 02 Nude Beige will wear best on someone with a light complexion and pink undertone.

03 Nude Honey – Thanks to its warm, yellow undertone, 03 Nude Honey will look great on someone with a light to tan skin tone.

04 Nude Amber –  Designed for a more tanned skin tone, 01 Nude Amber has a neutral to pink undertone.

05 Nude Cappuccino – Perfect for a deeper complexion, 05 Nude Cappuccino has a neutral to yellow undertone.
