If you’ve ever been frustrated by foundations that are just not quite right, then you’re going to love Clinique’s new BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops. This new product allows you to blend your own BB or CC cream, with the perfect coverage.
It’s so much easier for me to find a moisturizer that I like, than a foundation. You, too? Then hurray for us, because Clinique has just made it so much easier to get a foundation with the feel and finish of our favorite moisturizer (yes, creams too!), with coverage that can be customized to your own needs.
It works like this…Start by shaking the BIY bottle thoroughly (about 10 seconds). Place a small amount of your favorite moisturizer into the palm of your hand. Then add the desired amount of BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops (see below) into the moisturizer, blend and go! For summer, if you use a mattifying moisturizer, boom, you’ve now got a mattifying base. If you want the dewy glow from a cream moisturizer, you’re good to go.
- 1 Drop = Sheer coverage
- 2 Drops = Medium coverage
- 3 Drops = Fuller coverage
I’ve been using BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops and absolutely love them. The BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops come in 12 ready-to-mix shades, plus BIY Bronze. In my experience, once you mix the drops with the moisturizer, the color sort of magically turns into the right shade. I use 1 drop of 110 for natural, sheer coverage. If I need more coverage, I just add more drops.
Clinique BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops ($33) are available in department stores, including Nordstrom, ULTA Beauty and Clinique.com. I’m all about custom everything, so this is a concept I love. Check it out!
