I bought this, to use alternating MAC's bb cream. Just in case either one breaks me out, at least a day to 'rest' in between. So i can't help but compare the two's performance : Im an NC25, an prefers pinkish undertones for makeups. Yellows look stupid on me. The colour of this BB cream blends well with my tone, though a tad on the lighter side. I do look made up, not so au-naturel look. It's consistency is a thickish cream, somewhat like a rich foundation. It dries rather fast upon application, so I had to work my fingers really quickly. While MAC is easier to apply, less thick & matches me better, I find Clinique's BB cream quite expensive and I had to remedy it's cons by mixing it with some Biore's UV face milk, to adjust it's consistency. The shiny, sleek cap also gets dirtied easily by fingerprints from the cream. Won't repurchase, as it is not the best there is out there.
