To start off i have Dry eczema skin. If you have pretty smooth skin then itl work even betttter. This is a light to medium coverage. This foundation is for dry/combo skin. Its not as thick as revlon colorstay but its not watery either. The color matched me pretty good. It has pinks and yellows in it, its weird but it works. especially because my face doesnt have a pink or yellow undertone its kind of neutral. But this stuff does a good job on evening out your skin. if you have SERIOUS discoloration this might not be for you. But overall this makes my skin look Bright, and just pretty. i have extremly dry skin and it doesnt really dry me out. maybe it helps since its summer but i love this foundation :)
I will buy this again someday. I really like the way it adheres to my skin, as long as I don't use too much! I have oily skin so if I use too much it builds up and becomes a little too thick for my skin. I've been using Golden Neutral, which is great for me during the summer months when I'm tan. I have the hardest time finding the right color match for me with Clinique foundations as I have a more yellow undertone. But when I do find a match, I almost always love the formulas (superfit). But back to this foundation - I don't need concealer with it because it definitely gives enough coverage to hide my redness and discoloration. I really do like this foundation, I just wish that I could ALWAYS find a color match, not just during the summer months.
I liked this foundation. It gives my face some colour! I was worried about the tone of Clinique foundations (which is generally very pink), but it seemed to suit my skin alright.
It lasted the whole day even without powder, and DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT!
I've actually noticed an improvement in my skin!
The texture is great and the finish is very natural. It does not cost and arm and a leg (I noticed that GA and Chanel have increased their prices and the formulations of their foundationbs have been the same for 10 years!). The bottle is very handy and it is very easy to get just the right amount of product. also very handy if you are travelling as it is made of plastic (I like to pay for the quality of the product and not too bothered about fancy pakaging).
The only problem ... the colour. N. 1 alabaster is way too pink (I have a very light olive complexion). A real shame as it has a great staying power, it does not dry my skin or settle into pores. If Clinique improves the colour range this could easily become a HG founmdation.
UK buyers: you can return Clinique/Estee :Lauder products even if ypou have tried and used them. Very handy if you want to give these products a good try..
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.
