This foundation is a fairly good foundation.It did impress me when I tried on my hand and applied to my face at the first time. It has a very good coverage for freckles, and it covers over 70% of my freckles, which I like, and seldom a foundation does that. The texture is okay. It stays about 4 hours on my not oil,not dry skin, and the finish I really like. It never drys me out or even makes my cheeks look dewy. It's good, but not outstanding for me. Somehow, except the coverage of my freckles, it does everything a foundation are required to be, but not perfect or better in any. True, it stays for a while and never cakes, has good coverage, the finish looks good, color fits me, but I can find so many foundations do those jobs as same as this one. The finish does look good, but not really better. It's comfort on my face but not that comfort. It is a foundation that worth it price($24.50), and the price I got ($17.95 at outlet). I think it's a foundation worth a try, and I am willing to use it, but I won't buy it again.
Wow! I found my favorite foundation. I am 21 and have searched years for a foundation I love. I have tried: Mac, Revlon, Covergirl, Rimmel, Bare Minerals, Everyday minerals,loreal foundations. I found a few that i liked....... the problem : Either the make up was light but after a few hours was gone. Or it had great coverage but would end up breaking me out and feeling too thick. I almost gave up :( but i decided to try clinique. This foundation goes on so smoothly. It does not dry too quick so you wont have to worry about it drying in certaind spots. It has medium covarage, but i can build mine up. It does not break me out!! Its fragrance free and it last. I have found my HG of foundation!
I like this foundation.
I'm a big fan of mineral foundation & haven't used a liquid or cream for a long time. I've recently gotten a tan & can't wear my mineral foundation because it's far too pale, so I thought it was time to experiment.
I tried this on my hand before I spoke to the MUA & loved it. She asked about my skin type & recommended it then offered to apply it for me - it looked absolutely awful. Brush strokes everywhere, cakey, urgh. I'd already decided that I wanted to give it a go though so I bought it anyway.
After running to the nearest mirror & attempting to fix my face, I took it home & had a play. I moisturized & applied it after priming with GOSH primer. I got a flawless finish from applying this with the same brush I used to apply the primer. It's gorgeous. A little amount goes a long way & as long as you don't use too much, it isn't cakey at all.
I'll definately be repurchasing this in a lighter shade once my tan fades. I still love my mineral foundation & will continue to wear it day to day but this is definately going to be my go to foundation when I need a bit more coverage.
LOVE this foundation. Have worn for a couple of weeks and I do think it has improved my skin. Has a very nice flattering dewy finish and is easy to blend. Can be a little oily over the nose by the end of the day but if I put a little powder over the nose in the morning this doesn't happen. Have found I never need to touch up during the day. Using 05 Neutral and very happy with the colour. Have not needed a brush to apply. Have thrown out my MAC and Prescriptives foundations in favour of this one.
The lightest shade is not light enough for my PPP NC15 skin. Luckily I had a sample and didn't have to worry about returning/exchanging. Also, the formula seems quite runny/oily and some of the ingredients seem questionable for sensitive skin such as my own. I will stick with Clinique Stay True.
I really like his foundation. It has a medium coverage with a nice dewy coverage and does what it promises by evening my skin tone. The colour stays true on me and it wears nicely throughout the day.
I have combo to oily skin that breaks out VERY easily, and this product has been great. You only need the tiniest amount, otherwise you look too made up. I actually went a shade darker than I thought I would- I'm wearing the "honey" shade and am just a bit tan. It feels smooth, glides on easily, blends well, and isn't shiny!!
I use this with Clinique Superdefense SPF 25 moisturizer for Combo/Oily, and couldn't be happier. This is a rarity!
In the past, I have used Chanel, Estee Lauder Double Wear Light, Laura Mercier, La Mer, etc, but this is the best one I have found.
Oil slick galore!
First of all, this product provides great coverage and really did improve the appearance of my acne scars. It's no miracle, but does a good job.
Also, I have VERY oily skin, and amazingly, my skin is LESS oily at the end of the day using this than when I used Bare Minerals.
Unfortunately, like many others here, this foundation made me break out. I, too, tried a sample and thought it had a nice finish at first. I don't normally wear foundation unless its a special occasion or night out. I have pretty clear skin, but broke out within 7 hrs with cystic type acne that I VERY RARELY get. Would not recommend.
