I wasn't sure what to expect with this product as it was given to me by my brother who has very different skin than I do. ( I have quite dry skin and he generally has oilier skin)
But I have to say, the second I applied this foundation and started to blend, I was amazed by the effortless application!! The finish is so flawless and the easy buildable coverage makes this foundation fantastic for when you might get a blemish or a pimple or anything like that.
This foundation leaves a dewy type finish which is great for my skin but magically works great when putting a powder on top!
This is the first and possibly only foundation that I've applied which really does moisturise my skin throughout the whole of the day or night that I'm wearing it!!
The make up does not move at all through out the whole day, neither does it fade or wear away.
I seriously rate this as a must for anyone with dry skin and anyone who needs a foundation which is easy to apply and gives you a flawless and natural look.
I love it and I will for sure be buying this one again!!
I am a beauty advisor at a drug store and decided to go out and find a foundation outside of a drugstore. I have tried all kinds of other foundations and when i started to use this foundation i was very impressed! I absolutley love it!!! I no longer have to wear a blemish concealor under my makeup because it covers great! The wear is great on it especially when you work 10 hour days. It feels very light on my face all day long. The price is very reasonable. I would recommend it to everyone and would definetly purchase this product again.
I just bought this foundation yesterday along with the even better dark spot corrector moisturizer. I used it this morning and i must say i can see a difference already. The foundation lasted all day and my skin is very oily. The shade i bought is a good match also. I'm asian and my biggest problem with a lot of foundations is that it tends to be too yellow or pink for my skin. My shade golden neutral is perfect. Overall I can already tell this product is doing its job.
The Even Better foundation truly is a beautiful foundation with a wonderful shade selection, in my opinion. However, this makeup gives me a more dewy finish than I would like...I get so shiny so fast and I am not even that oily..I am combination skinned. Apart from being so shiny so fast, I think that the idea of the foundation and the coverage of it is great! If only it had more of a matte finish I would continue to use it..as it is I returned it and got a refund.
I want to add another lippie to this :). I quit using this a while back, but after I started using some other foundation, I started to get bumps on my face..not pimples but almost like a rash. I am 3 months pregnant so the rash may have been from that. That being said, I decided to go to the Clinique counter to help get my smoothe skin back, because Clinique has always been good to my skin and I never had a rash like that with any Clinique foundation. Well, I decided to give the Even Better foundation a try again, and I am glad I did! My skin has improved so much! My forehead, which was very bumpy, is now smoothe again and I have had no breakouts whatsoever! I have found that when I re-apply my powder during the day it really helps with any shine that I may have, and it is worth it to me to have a little shine and great skin rather than wear another foundation and have bad skin! I really like this foundation. :)
still loving this makeup. It never breaks me out and is gentle to my skin. A touchup with powder during the day keeps shine away.
I'm so glad I didn't listen to the Sephora SA who said go for MUFE because Clinique foundations are too pink for my yellow toned skin. Not for me!!! I am a NC40 with minor imperfections. Sum it up: No breakouts, really evens out skin, covers redness and imperfections well, wonderful for dry skin as it doesn't settle into fine lines and pores but keeps it supple and moist, medium coverage yet very natural looking, lasts all day, has spf 15 and other goodies to minimize age spots and brighten skin, nice packaging, excellent price!! Not sure it will work well for oily skin types. I got color matched in 3 different Clinique counters and 2 out of 3 labeled me as 'Honey'. It may be worth going to a few if you want a good match. Does exactly as it claims-evens out skin tone. Golden Neutral, Honey, or Vanilla are the three shades to try going from light to dark for NC40 skin tone. These all have 'G' for yellow undertones as oppose to beige or pink tones. Check out the website. You can chat with a consultant or take the questionaire for your ideal foundation.
I agree with the other reviewers about this being heavy. I used a bubble sample that was in a magazine and applied it under my eyes to test the coverage and it did feel heavy! It has a good level of coverage but I would think this would be a better concealer than foundation.
The color worked pretty well with my skin (Ivory) and since I am home working on papers and doing laundry, etc., I will rotate this into my routine until I am out of it, but only for use under my eyes.
I am a sucker for anything that promises "even tone."
I like this foundation a lot!
~Medium / full coverage
~Feels soft and blends easily
~Holds all day
~Can feel a little heavy
~Oily skin might get shiny
I cannot live without this!! My friend put it on me one night & my skin never looked better. I have acne scarring & I can see it lightening the scars which has been my biggest problem with myself forever. I couldn't be happier with this product. It gives me exactly what I need.. coverage & lightening. I will repurchase forever!
Received a generous sample of this from the Clinique counter and gave it a try. While the color--I chose Alabaster--worked for me in the summer, it was a little dark and the formula is thick and difficult to apply. It looked fake on close inspection and the sunscreen irritated my skin. Wish Clinique would make some shades for pale women and would take the sunscreen out of their products.
I have mixed feelings about this foundation. It was summer when I first got it, and I didn't like it much then. It felt too heavy and greasy. (I have very oily skin.) Now that the weather is getting colder and the heat is on in the house and car, my skin is liking it a bit more, although I still don't like the feel of it on my skin. However, I finally have decided to just throw it away. It looks fine when I apply it, but within a few hours starts to look quite orange. I will not repurchase it.
