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.
To start I'll explain how I came to purchase this product...
I went to Nordstrom expecting to buy Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and was approached by a Clinique SA (they shared the same counter). She asked me if I had thought about the Even Better foundation and offered to put it on so I could try it. She tried the color Ivory and it matches my skin very well (I'm a NW20 in MAC for reference). It has pretty good coverage and is buildable without feeling heavy or looking cakey. The package is a nice squeeze bottle which I like for hygienic reasons. The price is also pretty reasonable at $26.
Now for the one reason why I will be returning this product (it was out of stock so I haven't recieved the product yet...she gave me samples that I've been using)...I really don't like the finish of this foundation. It is very "dewy" and has a "glow" to it. Because I have dealt with acne and oily skin most of my life, anything that shines on my face makes me cringe. Unfortunately I didn't notice this until after I purchased it and went outside in the sunshine.
The PLUS is that the SA did give me samples of the Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser and I absolutely love this product and highly recommend it!
It turned orange on my skin. The formula is very thick feeling on my face. Covers well, really too well. I end up with a mask. Leaves makeup smears on everything even after having it on a while.
This product gave me deep itchy bumps on my forehead after only two uses in a row. I didn't notice at first because I didn't wear it everyday. I wore my first bottle once, and had to return it because it was too pink. I then got the next color down, and it was too orange. They both looked fine inside, but when I looked in my car mirror I was SO orange. Even the SA had their make up artist apply it on me because the even better concealer is thick and hard to apply without getting cakey. Also, I have oily skin and I think the finish was too shiny. Now the good things- It evened out my skintone and it doesn't feel like you're wearing make up (I accidently whipped my face with my sleeve).
It's an okay foundation, but I don't regret switching to a new one after I've used this for more than 2 years.
Coverage: The foundation covered my blemishes well and did not cause breakouts. Furthermore, there's a dry/combination skin option.
Color: People have complemented on how pretty I look WITH MAKEUP, and I blame this on the unnatural color.
Time it stays on: This foundation is gone in about 3 hours, especially if I stay outside.
Price: the plastic container is a bit funny, but I think it's less wasteful than bottles made out of glass. I use this everyday and it lasted me for almost an entire semester in college.
I have been using this foundation for over 4 years now and i enjoy it very much. works amazing on my face and I prefer it over all the others. I have very sensitive skin and break out from many products but this is by far the best on my face. Love it!
