Just finished up my first bottle a few days ago. I am afraid to admit that I've had this particular bottle since 2005! Yes, you read that correctly! It has taken me ages (obvio) because at one point I felt the colour (Cream Chamois) was a little too pink for me and, I got caught up in a billion other foundations eventually burying this one under a huge pile of ones I didn't care for. This summer, I made it a mission to finish 3 foundations by the end of the year and so this had to go first! The colour itself isn't as yellow as I prefer, it's a neutral tone that gives my skin a little warmth whilst looking like real skin. The formula was created to mattify oily areas and hydrate dry and even though my skin is combo (mostly oily), I didn't notice the mattifying properties. I am, however, one of those oily skinned women who prefers a glow. The more hydration the better and this foundation always makes me look and feel young because of the added moisture. It should be noted that there is no SPF in this which I'm ok with because I always use a separate one anyway (Cotz or Clinique City Block). I'll definitely repurchase but in a different shade and after I finish all of my other foundations ;)

Great foundation for my fair , combination skin.It is hard for me to find a foundation in the right colour. I'm fair with red cheeks but I hate full coverage. This foundation gives a light to medium coverage and is very buildable.I bought mine in Alabaster.I can apply it with my hands but I found Out that buffing it is with a brush gives a nicer effect.Without powder (I haven't found my HG setting powder yet) It Stays put for 6 hours on a warm day. With a primer (Smashbox) underneed it.My t-zone starts to shine after 2 hours.I got a sensitive skin and most foundations make my skin itch and breaking Out.This one doesn't.Overall a great foundation

My new holy grail foundation! I've tried quite the assortment of foundations in an attempt to find one that works for my oily/combo, sensitive, relatively fair skin, and this is it! It truly does what it claims--keeps oily areas matte(ish), and hydrates dry areas. It isn't a full coverage foundation but does balance skin tone and redness very well. I find I need to blot my face mid-afternoon, but I'm used to having to do that and reapply lipstick anyway, so it's not a huge deal. Doesn't have any SPF, so be sure to apply that before. The packaging kind of stinks. It's a square glass bottle and you have to buy the pump separately (an additional USD$6), so it's hard to get every last bit of product like you could in a squeeze tube. Does look nice on my vanity, though! The packaging is very clean looking, though, which is what I expect when I think of Clinique. If you have oily/combo skin but not a lot of breakouts, I absolutely recommend this!

To get to the point, I like it. I think with the other steps I take to prevent oily skin, this foundation does help. It's light coverage, but can be layer without looking cakey. I also like that it doesn't make my skin look flaky.

This foundation in nude beige was my holy grail since I got to know it from Fall 2013, I loved the shade and since I have a dry/combination skin, it used to stay on my skin enough time to enjoy the shade, but when I bought a new bottle recently, I noticed this foundation has gone under extreme transformation, I mean the manufacture has had some changes in its formulation, not only I didn't found the its previous nice yellow shade in that but It just melts on my skin as I apply it, it does not have any coverage, actually It seems you applied a moisturizer. I am going to return that. I wish the company makes the first formulation again.

I wouldn't say this is the most perfect foundation but it's the best I've come across so far. I have super dry skin on my forehead and oily skin in my nose area (I'm not the only one right??). This foundation does a good job at "balancing" the moisture and oil on my skin as my forehead stays relatively hydrated while my nose doesn't get too oily. The price is not too bad for a department store brand (CAD $29). However like everyone else has said, the packaging really sucks but Clinique does sell a pump for it but at $7. However this wasn't t ideal for me and I assume the same most people.

I am very fair and have a lot of difficulty finding foundations that are light enough. The lightest shades from most brands, even high-end brands like Chanel, Dior, YSL, Lancome etc -- are simply too dark. I live in Europe and I could not find any Clinique foundation shades lighter than Ivory, which is still too tan. Then, by luck, one store happened to have an order mix-up and got in a bottle of Alabaster. It was the perfect shade for me and I've been happily wearing it ever since. No problems whatsoever.I had been wearing Sensai/Kanebo's CP cream foundation in Creamy Beige CF 11. It was a good match and it wore very well. However, they've discontinued the shade. I was pleased to find a substitute from Clinique, especially as it costs nearly $100 less than the Kanebo/Sensai foundation. I plan to keep wearing this foundation, although I might look at some pale shades from other brands when I am back in the U.S., where there is a much greater variety available for really fair-skinned redheads.

This gives a very Nice and natural cover. It feels moisturising on the skin. But what does it matter? When It's totally gone in less than 30 minuts. Have to apply again and again. Worthless. Will Never buy again.

Beige chiffon is a perfect match for me, nc20 -25. Clinique classes it as a moderately fair neutral. It is neutral but leans yellow so works well on my asian skintone. It's the most yellow of the colours imo, followed by nude beige which is medium. HOWEVER, I feel that in it's entirety the colour range (in the uk anyway) is way too pink.It blends easily. The finish is v natural demi-matte. It doesn't cling to dry patches. It does not mattify my t zone but it's not greasy either. They don't have the pump in the uk (I asked) but I can live with the pkg as it's quite attractive.Woot! Five stars. However, I don't see this colour on the US website anymore so maybe it's being discontinued. Typical.

In general I like the liquid foundations from Clinique, and as I currently have combined to dry skin this was the way to go. I overall really like this foundation. The colour match works well for me, it's easy to apply (I use a stipple brush), it has a nice consistency, and lasts the entire day without powder. The smell is very neutral typical foundation smell. The finish of the foundation is natural with a slight dewy look to the skin. I wish it had a SPF, preferably of 30 for the very fair tones.There is a lot of wonderful things about the product, which is why it pains me that the packaging is so unpractical. The glass bottle looks so pretty when it's standing on my makeup table, it's less pretty when the product splashes out of it in big gulps since there is no pump included in the 23$ price. A lot of product goes to waste when you can't squeeze or pump the flask, so remember to buy the pump separately.Even though I like the foundation a lot, I think the flask is too wasteful, and the lack of SPF is not ideal for me, so I will not repurchase but rather go back to Clinique's even better foundation.
