I have acne and dry skin so i asked the SA at sephora which clinique full cover foundation can acomodate that and has SPF. I like the way it applies, I usually use a wet sponge and it goes on nicely and covers well which i need because i have acne scarring. I don't think this has broken me out so I'm happy. I can overlook that the packaging does not have a pump but is in fact a squeeze bottle with a small dropper like opening so i think this will work out to get every last drop out. My only problem is that the color range is limited, I ended up buying this at sephora, and the SA sold me the wrong color (ivory) which i ended up returning for the lightest (alabastor) after an SA who knew what she was doing better helped me out. So far I like it, it's good for combination skin, and if you can find an exact match it's worth a try
I have bad acne scars, so I wanted something to cover them and heal...this is is! I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and have noticed scars fading. It leaves a nice dewy finish that I love! Hasn't made my face break out like crazy either. I have acne prone skin, but I haven't noticed anything directly caused from wearing this. It does have Octinoxate, Zinc Dioxide, and Titanium Dioxide as active sunscreens. So if you are sensitive to one of those then maybe you should beware. But Titanium Dioxide-only foundations have always made me break out heavily, maybe since this is a low SPF it doesn't irritate as much. My only complaint to Clinique is that they revamped this line for the USA. In Asia it is the DermaWhite line and everything is in pretty white and silver packaging.
I generally buy all my face makeup (foundation, concealer, powder) from Clinique (swear by their airbrush pen concealer!) I was completely in love with this foundation for the first few days I used it. It has a nice medium coverage and gives your skin a healthy glow. I thought I had finally found my perfect foundation! That was until I started getting huge bumps and deep painful zits on my forehead and around my mouth/chin. I was hoping it might be from something else, such as the summer heat, so I kept using it, but my skin just kept getting worse -I normally have pretty clear skin, just an occasional blemish here or there. I'm so sad! I exchanged it today for the Perfectly Real Foundation and will give that a try. My guess is that it might be the SPF & the thicker consistency in the product that caused it...
I have such bad luck at clinique counters, they always match me with the WRONG foundation but anyway I like this foundation, the texture is nice, not too thick not too watery. Overall good foundation but since I was matched like 50 shades darker I'm not impressed with clinique at all. Their is stuff way better out there.
I absolutely LOVE this foundation. Finding a good foundation has always been difficult for me because it either cakes on my skin, or it makes my face look really greasy and oily. Finally I found a foundation that gives medium coverage, doesn't cake, and leaves my skin with a dewy finish!! I set my foundation with a loose powder, but you can still see the glow from the foundation, and the colours I need for both summer and winter match me perfectly. Since my skin tends to be on the oily side, I would recommend setting it with a loose powder if you want to avoid shine but still keep the glowing look. I've haven't even finished my first bottle but purchased another for when this one runs out!
I would of never guessed that Clinique made such a fabulous foundation!! I tried this on a whim..because I like to always experiment w/different foundations and I'm extremely impressed :) I bought this in sand (I'm NC 40) and I find this foundation blends flawlessly into my skin!
Great product!!! I just happened to walk by the Clinique counter at Nordstrom and the lady there found my perfect foundation that matches my skin exactly. Other people have told me they would've never known I had foundation on. It makes my skin very polised, dewy, glowing and nice. I alwasy use it everyday. Love it!
this is my go to foundation, whenever i try different products i always find myself going back to this. its a meduim to full coverage foundation that claims to over time even the skins pigmentation which i have notice a difference with my acne scars there not as dark anymore but i dont if thats because of this foundation or just because they are naturally fading. this finish of this foundation i would say it sort of a satin finish which is ok with my combination skin. the only issue i have with it is by the end of the day my face looks rather oily but this happens with whatever foundation i use.
Liked this a lot. It gives a luminocity and a very pretty glow to the skin.
This foundation luminates and provides decent coverage...but does not offer too much in terms of oil control...nonetheless, the finish is not dull and matte. Also, did not irritate my skin. For color reference, I'm around NC 43-45, and I bought this in Deep Neutral. I set it with Transparency Bronze blended powder.
