i'm a dyehard clinique fan for my foundations and stuff. i used to use superbalanced but then my skin changed and made me look like an oompa loompa. so i tried some other stuff and found even better foundation. i love the consistency and way it goes on. i use alabaster, with even better concealer in porcelain and stay matte powder in VF (very fair) and am very pleased with the results. the makeup works even sans concealer to cover current and old acne marks as well as circles and bags. as a trio i find it gives me a powder smooth finish that stays on for hours even in the heat and humidity. i would definitely buy this again and would recommend it to anyone with oily/acne prone skin.
the only down side is that packaging. i like the squeeze top but it would be even nicer if the bottle was see-through or had a window so i could see how much there is left in the bottle
I love this foundation so far! I have been using it for about a month now! I have combo skin that breaks out easily and I can tell within a day if something's gonna work or not. In feel like this foundation makes my skin look calmer and more even after I wear it. It goes on well with a foundation brush and it's best if you moisture first and let the moisturizer sink in. I looks like the foundation might make you look oily/shiny but it actually makes you look glowing and healthy. I hate the way matte products make skin look sallow and dull. Skin is suppose to be dewy and light emitting. As for the SPF I really don't care if itnhas it in it or not and I usually hate SPF products in makeup. It's like I can smell the SPF and taste it all day in other foundations I have tried but not this one at all! Covers dark spots or old acne spots really well. Full coverage without feeling heavy at all! Great for all skin types in my opinion. My color is cream whip and I actually have olive skin thath tans really easy. But in the summer if it's a little too light for me I'll just put some bronzed on top. Costs $26 so it's not drugstore cheap but it will last a very long time because you only use a little larger than a pea size amount. The packaging is great bc it a squeeze tube so no wasted product! Overall a great pick!!! I will repurchase this.
One word. AMAZING. This product covers old acne scars without brig so heavy as to clog my skin and make me breakout. It evened out my skin tone and made me glow, and also didn't make my skin excessively oily. Plus, it has SPF 15. I would definitely buy this product again!
Best foundation I have found! Gives you a nice "glow." Stays put...doesn't make me greasy. Smoothing out my complexion while covering up my current imperfections. Genius! :) Goes on smooth...fairly generous coverage. I've found most foundations just don't give me the cover I want...this is just right.
Well.....wow......I guess the best way to describe this product is my HG FOUNDATION. FINALLY!!!!!! Just some background on me: combination skin, dry patches, very pale complexion (what I would imagine would be MAC NC10 if it existed), trouble with foundations oxidizing. Also, I bought this at Shoppers Drug Mart for $31CAN but on their website you can get it for $26. So, I believe that this is the perfect foundation for combination skin if it is applied in combination with the correct products (as with any foundation). For me, the correct products are Smashbox Photofinish Light primer underneath this and I set it with Maybelline Dream Matte Powder. This foundation is medium coverage and has a dewy/luminous finish (this foundation does not contain any sparkle). For me, this foundation last about 8 hours without touchups without the primer and face powder but with the face powder and primer I would say it lasts a good 12 hours. People with dry or oily skin may experience different results. The shade I am in this foundation is Alabaster which unfortunately is too dark for me and I would not recommend it for skin as pale as mine or paler skin but I can get away with it since I do use a light sunless tanner so that my face can match my body. The finish on this product is amazing, the wear time is amazing and it just completely perfects my skin. What an amazing product. I usually hate Clinique products but am completely blown away by this little gem. Way to go Clinique! I also think this is one of the first times that I've seen Clinique packaging that does not look like it was put in a time machine back to the 1960's.
this foundation is lignt to medium coverage.it leaves skin looking natural.the only bad thing is that its tooo dewy so brush on some finishing powder and it look great.
I purchased this foundation because the acne solutions foundation from Clinique was way too cakey and this was a touch less coverage. However, it looked so good on the skin. It was natural looking and gave a dewy/fresh glow. I loved it! As a teenager, I'm used to dealing with acne. When I used this foundation, I noticed way more zits. I thought maybe it was something else I was using. Finally, when I finished up the product, I peeled off the Macy's sticker covering the ingredients label. I noticed this contained bismuth oxychloride which always breaks my skin out. It's the ingredient that gives products a dewy look. So I could've avoided the acne marks that I now have to deal with. Be careful if you're allergic to this or get a sample first
I love this stuff! It does not really do what it claims as far as "even better skin" goes, but it provides beautiful, natural coverage that lasts over 7 hours. It needs to be set properly though, since you will get oily looking if you have oily skin and wear this. Definitely worth the money! ^_^
This is one of those foundations I had high hopes for, but it's just not for me. It seems to slide off my face through out the day and I just can't get a matte look with it. Also, it causes my skin to break out everytime I use it and tends to make my face itch.
After reading reviews saying this was medium to full coverage, I gave in and bought this. Now I just have another foundation that didn't work for me and just added to the pile of wasted $. This didn't cover anything and the color was way off. I only wore it twice so I didn't see the "even better" results. I did like that it didn't dry my dry skin...but that's all.
