CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 40

How are you dealing with this crazy heatwave? In terms of skincare, it's important to keep the skin hydrated with lightweight, hydrating products. When it comes to makeup, the lighter the better in my opinion. I usually prefer extra dewy finish but in sommer when it's super hot, something a bit more matte is what I enjoy.
With that in mind, the new foundation from Clinique called CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 40 seems like a perfect match! ;D

It's a lightweight, sweat- and humidity-proof foundation that was developed to be used at the gym, but yeah hot weather in summer is like being at the gym 24/24, itsn't it? :p
It has a light to medium coverage, a natural-matte finish and is supposed to last for 12h.

I've used it quite often in the last past month and I like the lightweight texture. You can't feel the foundation on your skin and it really looks like you're wearing nothing, but it evens your skintone and covers redness.
It's very liquidy and is very easy to apply. I apply it with a foundation brush (the new Dior brush 11), but I've also tried it with a buffing brush or a beauty blender and it also works nicely. Lasting power is also good on me, it lasts from morning to evening so about 10-12h. I haven't noticed that it moisturizes or dries the skin out, it's pretty neutral in that department in my opinion.
It contains a SPF 40 but as always I'm not a fan of foundations with a SPF in it as to achieve a real SPF40 you would need to apply a crazy amount of foundation (what nobody does) and I always use a separate stand alone sunscreen anyway.
The foundation comes in a re-sealable bright yellow pouch instead of a cardboard box (I find it super cute!). The bottle is made of plastic, looks rather small (that's convenient when you travel, you can't break it and it's easy to carry it around) and contains 30mL/1Fl.oz.liq. of product. It's made in Japan.
Overall this is typially a foundation I love during summer because it's lightweight, it beautifully evens the skintone and covers redness and is sweat- and humidity-proof! and the bottle is perfect to travel with!

Do you have a favorite summer foundation?
