I really like clinique foundations , they give me a radiant dewy finish, which my dry skin loves and the fair shade usually blends in perfectly with my skin tone. I have been using the even better and decided to switch to the redness solutions as my rosy cheeks a huge pet peeve of mine and but it was too heavy. It left my skin looking mask like and unnatural. Ive decided to keep it however because if I use a tiny bit mixed with my tinted moisturizer its very good for layering over problem areas.
Loving this with light coverage and brush application. I'm not a clinique fan and could have done without very heavy sales approach to 'switch brands' when I purchased. That aside this works on my slightly dry, slighty red skin and I will be buying again.
I bought this foundation thinking that it would help mask some of the redness I get from acne and the acne treatments my doctor has prescribed for me. I really don't think it does any better than any other foundation as far as covering the redness, and I can't say it really treated the redness either. Maybe this is just for people with rosacea??? Either way, my skin got really oily with this after a few hours, and it tended to clump when it became oily. I continually have to battle with oiliness though; I haven't found a foundation that really holds up against my greasy skin! I'm trying Make Up For Ever's waterproof makeup next so we'll see....
I use - and love! - the Redness relief daily moisturiser so I thought I'd try the foundation in the range. Three months later and I really don't like at all.
I'm very fair and the lack of shades means even the lightest one is still a bit too dark and orangey for me. Application isn't very easy and I have to blend it immediatey after sunblock while my skin is still damp. It cakes and makes my skin feel tight within a few hours ;-(
I have purchased just about every foundation out there from the very top of the line to the more reasonable drugstore variety--this foundation, in my opinion is all I will ever need from now on. I use the Alabaster, I have fair skin, that tends to get blotchy--this makeup controls the blotchiness and what I like the best is the natural look. I only need a little and at my age, that is all I really need because too much brings out the age of my skin. It looks natural, it blends beautifully. I also like the way it stays all day. The creme blush works best with this foundation and no setting powder is needed, another plus. I am throwing away all my expensive foundations that clutter my drawer and I will only use this product from now on.
Well I purchased this since I have a redness condition. I am so fair and the Alabaster color turned orange on my fair. WOW not helping the red problems. Thanks
If you are light skinned you will find a match, but their lightest shade, alabaster, really is for a nw20-25 so it's kind of dark to be "the lightest" shade.
it simply works
i apply with my fingers
works well on faces like mine that get vino - flushing :)
First foundation I bought, and I don't see the point in trying anything else. This is amazing!! I am Asian so my skin has some yellow undertones but this looks very natural on me. I have this in "calming honey" or something like that and it's a perfect match. My skin has redness around the t-zone area and this is perfect for covering redness. When I'm wearing this my skin doesn't get irritated and flushed and it really does calm the redness. Over time it has improved the condition and reduced the redness on my face. The coverage is really good. The bottle is small, but you only need a small drop to get the job done. Even though the coverage is great it is lightweight and I can't feel it at all. A heads up though, this extenuates dryness and rough patches, but that's not much of a problem for me; I have oily skin. Also, it is slightly drying as with most foundations so before hand I like to damp my face with a little water which helps it go on and spread a lot more smoothly. Overall pretty expensive but definitely worth it if you have redness issues.
I am in love with this foundation. When I apply this with a foundation brush it looks like my skin but better, very natural, not masklike at all. I am NW20 and my shade is Alabaster which is a good match. The coverage is medium. The packaging is nice, it is a squeeze tube.
I found out about this foundation after I watched a Youtube video by Lisa Eldridge about the best foundation for acne. She likes to use this one because it is the most "natural looking" foundation. Then in the video she used a Vichy Dermablend foundation as concealer on the acne spots and scars. Instead, I use the MUFE 5 Camouflage Cream Palette for concealer, which I dab on my spots. So, this is currently a HG foundation for me along with Estee Lauder Double Wear which I like for full coverage, but I find the Estee Lauder finish is not as natural looking.
this is really nice, my chin has had a giant red blotch on it from impegio i had a couple of years ago, and my derm. had prescribed me different products for it, but this is the only thing that really worked. after a couple of days, i noticed the redness starting to fade. the color is a little orange-y, but it's not that bad (i can wear it just on my chin and it doesn't look TOO unnatural compared to the rest of my face). A funny thing i noticed was that i just got one of those big, painful pimples on my chin, the ones that are usually bright red, but this one is white, which is kinda nice (:. also, i think this might be sorta expensive to purchase, but it will last forever! a lady at the counter gave me a sample in this TINY little thing about the size of my thumb, and i've been using it everyday for about two weeks, and it's barely diminished! i seriously think a whole bottle cost last over a year
