I actually like this product more than my review numbers indicate. It feels light, has zero scent, and provides moderate coverage that doesn't cake up, change color, or settle into fine lines. My issue with it is that it has a slight sheen to it - not quite sparkly, but just enough to highlight things like "smile lines" at the tops of your cheeks. I was really looking for something for every day that looked more natural and could be worn all over the face. However, for going out in the evening, or for highlighting certain areas of the face, this is fine. It's by no means HG, and I'm still on the look out for the perfect foundation. (PS, the SPF should be higher for the price, IMHO.)
I tried a sample of this. It's a foundation but in my opinion it's pretty sheer. Too sheer for me. I had to layer my Rimmel Lasting Finish over it. The sample I got was called "neutral". It was a bit too dark for my skin tone and seemed pretty orange-y on me(which almost all Clinique foundations do on me for some reason). I doubt I'll buy this because I can never find a decent color match with this company. But if you want a semi sheer foundation with skin care benefits then give this one a try.
I received the sample from magazine too. Also the color is a little bit darker for me. But the amazing thing about this foundation is, it's so easy to apply, and it doesn't feel like make up (feels like tinted moisturizer). It's very very natural, maybe too sheer for some people who need high coverage.
I asked my husband if he could see I wear makeup. He told me hard to tell.
I just started using this about a month ago and I love it! The coverage is great and it has improved the look and feel of my skin.
So in the past I used MUFE HD and I didn't really like it b/c it didn't have good coverage and the color was a bit too dark for me. So I switched to MAC Studio Sculpt which was a much better color match and had much better coverage. The only thing was that it was a bit heavy, I could feel it on my face a bit and at the end of the day I had a bit of a shine to my forehead. So I tried Clinique Even better fdtn. I've only been trying it for 2 days. The color match is good and it goes on nice and smoothly? MAC SS was a bit thick to apply. However b/c Clinique was "smoother" it's coverage isn't as great as MAC, however still better than MUFE HD though.
I'll admit that in part I got clinique b/c of the bonus but I think also think that b/c Clinique is not as heavy I don't get as much of a shine. So it should be good for the upcoming summer. We'll see.. Clinique is the same price as mac but for less product, 1 oz vs 1.3 oz both for abouty $30 CND. However Clinique is much cheaper than MUFE HD (same amount but MUFE HD is $45CND). Packaging is nice for clinique - it's a small squeeze bottle that I can carry around with me for touch ups. I guess if I don't like it I can always go back to mac.
I want to see if it does as it claims and lightens my skin tone. I think I see a bit of acne scar fading?? but it might be my imagination however.
I really like this. I tried it on in the store (Sephora) and was instantly impressed by how well it covered and evened out my skin tone but still looked really natural. It dries down to a smooth finish -- perfect base for makeup. And, I love that it's SPF 15 to supplement the SPF in my moisturizer (I am obsessed with sun protection, being extremely fair).
I got this in alabaster and it's a great match. My skin is extremely dry, although it gets less so in the summertime, and it's sensitive. This is working out great for me.
Took off a lippie because I actually find the tube a bit hard to work with and it seems like I am always dispensing a little more than I need.
This is great so far. I purchased Fair 02 and for once, I have found a foundation that actually matches! Previously with Clinique I was matched with too pinky undertones but this one is PERFECT. I am really overjoyed..it has a really nice finish. Packaging is perfect in its squeeze tube.
Yesterday I got a sample of this make-up and here is my take on it. The coverage is great, and a little goes a LONG way, which is really nice. The problem that I had is that it never fully dried on me, it felt tacky for hours. I have very oily skin, so maybe that was my problem. Even with powder on top it didn't feel dry and it looked shiny. So this foundation would probably work great for people with dry skin. I will be sticking with the Clarifying foundation, as it dries way fast and is matte...I just wish that I didn't have to use as much to cover.
LOVE IT!! I have not used a Clinique product in YEARS, but after purchasing the Redness Solutions products and the Even Out Serum, which I love---the SA showed me this. The shade FAIR is a perfect match---and I usually hate all the other Clinique foundations because they are waaaaay too orange-y. This has just the right amount of coverage and stays on all day. I love the plastic bottle and the little snout at the top that distributes a drop at a time. This is my new HG!!!!!!
I received a sample of this in a fashion magazine. Even though it was a few shades darker than I usually wear, I was impressed by the coverage and finish. I have a big problem with brown spots, sun damage and general skin tone, and this is suppose to help all that. I just purchased another foundation that was supposed to help fine lines and anti-aging qualities (Tarte ReCreate) that I really like, too. Guess I'll have to alternate. I bought the Even Better fountation in a color that matched my skin much better then the sample. I got 01 Alabaster, and it's a great match. I usually wear the lightest or next to lightest, and since I stay out of the sun, I can wear the same color year around. I will update if I have any breakouts or bad experiences. I've worn Clinique foundations before, and they are OK, but it seems there is always something around the corner that's new and improved. Hopefully this will fade the brown blotches and even my complexion. I also purchased the Even Better Skin Tone Corrector, so I have high hopes Will update when I've given it more time to work, but so far, so good.
