Superbalanced makeup has always been one of my favourites! What I love most about this product is the natural finish. I currently use this product as my day time foundation as the coverage is perfect for every day use. It blends lovely and I would definitely recommend using a foundation brush for application as I find this is the best way to apply this product.
I have read a few reviews mentioning the actual bottle that it comes in and I personally remove some of the product with a cotton tip on to the back of my hand and use my hand as a palette by removing the product and then applying, I find doing this also means I use less product too so little tip for you there! :-)
Even though I have dry skin, this foundation looked good and felt good on my face. Just doesn't have enough moisture for winter. I'm going to try it again when hot summer gets here. I think I will like it very much then because I won't need so much moisture on my face.
I initially loved this foundation because it matched my skin tone almost perfectly. However, after wearing it for a few days I noticed my skin began to get itchy and red after a few hours. I continued using the foundation...until it started making my face break out. I do not have break out prone skin and this surprised me, as Clinique claims to be so good for your skin. So I'm thinking there must be some ingredient in this foundation that does irritate skin and clog pores, contrary to their advertisements. I am extremely disappointed in this product and would neverrr buy it or anything else from Clinique ever again.
Great product! I am lighter than NC15, and I bought in Breeze and for the first time in my life--NO MAKEUP LINE!!!!!! haha :) I am impressed w/this. I dont even have to really touch up during the day. Nice coverage, keeps oil at bay, and not too mask-like. The only gripe is the bottle, but even then it's a nice thick consistency so it just rolls out of the bottle so you just have to pour out a little bit onto a foundation brush/sponge. perfection!
I have super oil forehead and have rarely suggested any foundation.
But this foundation gives a flawless full coverage matte finish.
If you have problems with the staying power, set it with pressed powder.
It helps to absorb the oil; it works for my every time i do that.
Only downfall for this product is the colour selection; it's not wide enough & the assistants don't really know how to pick match colours and all that ... sadly
I love this foundation. I have had no break outs using this and i have been using it for over a year now. Very good quality, and it looks very natural. Only problem is the packaging, not very practical, its glass, and product difficult to remove from bottle. But otherwise love it.
I'm really pale (like it is hard for me to find foundation as pale as my skin) and I bought this in "Breeze" once blended it works quite well. Does not oxidize on me which alot of other foundations do. Thick but not heavy texture. I will finish the bottle but I don't think I will re-purchase.
I'm so torn abou tthis product! On the one hand, it's the first foundation I've found whose shade matches my skin color PERFECTLY. On the other hand, the packaging is terrible, and I find I waste so much of it because I can't squeeze or pump out foundation. I've resorted to sticking a q-tip into the bottle and scooping that onto a make-up sponge. Not good, nor practical. Overall, it's a great foundation for the price. It doesn't make me break-out, and it doesn't leave my skin oily or greasy. It's the right amount of coverage for me -- someone who doesn't like to look like she's wearing makeup. You take the good with the bad on this one. If the bottle design was better, it would've earned a 5. I'll probably go back to Lorac after this bottle is done.
Light to medium coverage. Slightly buildable but doesn't cover dark spots completely. Very thin formula when applied with a brush, product doesn't go far as my other creamier liquid foundations. I tend to use much more which is a bit wasteful. It does a nice job of covering pores, lasts most of the day but does tend to fall off my face toward the end of the day if I use a very light hand with it. I set this foundation with Clinique's loose powder foundation. Both leave my skin looking FLAWLESS and poreless. My boyfriend marveled at how airbrushed and pretty my skin looked. (Before, I was using MUFE HD foundation and NEVER received that sort of response from him). I actually was complimented at how pretty I looked and I the only thing in my routine I changed was my foundation/powder. I had/have acne prone skin and so far I haven't broken out with this product. I recommend this foundation if you're not looking for a cakey finished look or full coverage. I also recommend using a brush since fingers may leave streaks and uneven coverage.
Fantastic foundation for my combination skin - quite light coverage, so if you need medium to heavy coverage, this is not for you. Love the texture, easy to blend, very natural looking. I'm not crazy about the heavy glass bottle - not great for travel, but I depot into a smaller container for travel and it's OK.
