This foundation has a satin/glowy finish and it gives medium coverage (so if you have dark scars, they won't be 100% covered). I have oily & acne prone skin and have not broken out from this. It wears okay throughout the day but all foundations seem to wear the same on my oily skin so it's hard to comment on that. But, I think my bottle is almost empty which is pretty good for me because I own alot of foundations that are no where near empty.. they're practically full, ugh.
I am only giving it 4 stars because even though I have my closest color match, it still has a pinkish undertone (I have yellow undertones). But out of the many foundations I do own (Guerlain, La Mer, By Terry, MUFE, MAC, BE, Everyday Minerals, Lancome), this is one of my go-to foundations. continued >>
horrible colour match for any complexion way to pink !will never buy any clinique foundation again!ever!
I always find myself looking for a HG foundation for quite a while now. I felt before that I dont need it for now cause I have good skin ( thank's God) but as I see other ladies with glowing skin, i felt a little intimidated. Being bare bothered me and decided to give it a try. I've tried tinted moisturizer by Laura Mercier which is quite good but I felt something is still missing. I also tried Bobbi Brown moisturising foundation but it broke me out, too bad, it was a pretty decent foundation though. I came across the even better foundation from clinique with good reviews and finally.. this is it! Its perfect for my skin! I got the Alabaster shade, and it just gave me that glowy/dewy look that i always dreamed off..I've been using it for few months now and nobody noticed that Im wearing foundation coz it looked so natural for me but more flawless.
Ladies, this is the best buy. you'll never regret..
I love this foundation! I have used Merle Norman Long Wearing, I liked it but it dried out my skin. I have used Estee Lauder but it settled into every pore. This product glides on smoothly and has great coverage. It doesn't settle into the pores and is long lasting. I have used it for about a year and love it!
This is an okay foundation, it covers well, has a dewy skin effect. I have the lightest shade, alabaster 01. Its got to dark for me in the winter and it has more a of pink toned look to it and doesn't match my skin well. I like it but I would pick my colorstay over it any day.
I think it is a pretty good foundation. I have it in the shade vanilla, and it is top dark for me when im not tanned up, so I only use it then. You can see the foundation on my skin, and its pretty hard to blend out completely, bit besides that its a nice foundation if you like a little more coverage. I get a tiny bit oily in the t-zone, and I dont know if it is because of that or if the foundation doesnt has got poor staying power, but it doesnt stay on my skin for more than a couple of hours in my t-zone, and a little longer on the rest of my face. Dont think I would repurchase, but thats because its going to take me a pretty long time to finish this bottle since I dont adore it.
I got this as a sample and it lasted me about 2 weeks. Background info: I have Clinique's Superfit foundation in Neutral and I was matched with the shade Fair for Even Better. Overall, I would say that Superfit is better. Although Even Better was decent, it wasn't as blendable as Superfit in my opinion. It was more detectable on my skin than Superfit i.e. it looked like I had foundation on. The coverage is about the same as the Superfit; it gives medium coverage. Lasting power is not as good as Superfit's. I can't say if it improved my skin tone though as I've only used it to 2 weeks. I might give this a try again later in the future but for now I'm sticking to Superfit.
Update: tried it again. was matched with Golden Neutral this time around. Still only ok for me. Still same problems, doesn't look natural, not long lasting, could use more coverage. On to greener pasteurs..
Update #2 Gave it another try after one year. i keep wanting to give it a chance because I like the concept of a foundation that covers imperfections while reducing them. but the color match is just not working out for me. Most of them are too pink. The coverage is medium at best with 2 layers or more. one layer gives light coverage. the lasting power is pretty poor..a few hours at best even with the skindinavia setting spray. and when it fades, it fades away in an ugly way. it doesn't just fade away like a normal foundation. as it wears off, my pores are accentuated, my fine lines looks more prominent, dry patches are more visible..not a good look. I really wanted this to work :( only initial application looks good but it just wears off too quickly and in a bad way.
Even better fits my foundation criteria which let me just say is quite high. I have uneven skin tone, bad texture from scarring and occasionally the red pimple to cover up..Even better is amazing and truly has made my skin appear smoother, softer and even-toned.. I've been using it off and on for over a month and it hasn't broke me out either...Perfect! What more could I want in a foundation? A miracle in a bottle, well not totally but it's faking a close one.
I've struggled for years trying to find a good color match for my almost but not quite olive skin but this foundation in Honey is spot on. I have several scars that this covers nicely. A good brush applies this nicely and give me enough control to build coverage in specific areas. Sets beautifully in the morning on my oily skin with a dusting of loose powder and I don't get breakthrough until about 2 in the afternoon. I think I've finally found my HG foundation!
I have old acne marks I was hoping to fade with this product. It gives good coverage and after a couple of days it actually looked like my scars were softening. Yay! However, it also started to break me out. I promptly returned this. If you are not sensitive to breakouts, this might be what you need!
