I recently got this from a swap it arrived broken but I had enough to try. This is very light weight no heavy coverage. Perfect for when you great skin days. I love it i think I am going to purchase. I have very oily skin and I wore this for 8hrs and my skin did not get shiny at all and that was without a oil-free primer. Its a great price for what you get. The packaging sucks thought I wish it came with a pump. Overall I like it I added a picture with my review the lighting is a bit bright and washes me out also foundation is too light for my skin. If your a Clinique fan like I am give this a try. I also forgot to mention I used no concealer under this. Well only under my eyes due to bad dark circles.

When my skin is relatively clear this is a good product but I find that it is too sheer for my acne prone skin. I end up having to use a lot more concealer than I'd like. However if you have clear skin and are just looking to even out your skin tone and adding a dewy glow this product is for you. I would recommend using a mattifying primer underneath as it is a bit oily. It blends very nicely! I wouldn't buy it again, only because I have some acne that needs a heavier foundation.

overall a good product ! this foundation was suggested by a friend blends in well and gives good coverage perhaps to heavy for day wear for me but nice for going out it depends on personal taste however do notice that after 3-4 hrs my t -zone is a bit oily and have to blot/powder but overall a good product with wide range of colours (I have diificulty finding right shade to suit in most brands) and would buy again

This makes me look great when I put it on, perfect, flawless skin and 27 alabaster is a perfect match for my skin tone. The only problem I have it is it's too moisturising for my dry-ish skin. I end up looking oily and it gathers in little areas all over my face and in my smile lines within 2 hours of putting it on even if it's set with powder. I have to blot repeatedly through the day which takes a bit off each time so I end up looking blotchy by lunchtime. I'm going to give it a bit more time to figure it out, as the weather changes again it may be better but I'm not betting on it.

Edit: I've recently been trying this again and it works better in the winter for me but I've been getting little waxy bumps on my face and I can't decide if it's due to this foundation or not. I do like how it covers my redness though.

First of all, this foundation as with all Clinique products are pink based, so Asians and Europeans should stay as far away from this as possible!

Coverage is sheer to medium and I needed concealor to achieve the flawless skin look, which I never got with this foundation.

I bought it for $45 at Myer but I think for this price, I would rather spend $20 and buy another brand as this really does not work for yellow skin people. Plus, this photographs ghostly white even though it says there's no SPF in it.

Sand (09) is a pretty good match for my NC42-43 complexion. I like this foundation more than Superfit during the winter months. It leaves more a moisturized, dewy finish. I use the pressed powder in Stay Honey to set the foundation. For somewhat of a glow, I top it off with Clinique's bronzer in Sunkissed (02) all over.

My only gripe is the packaging. It's a glass bottle, and unlike Superfit, I can't even just squeeze it...I wish it were a pump!

I have eczema and my skin type is dry, but because I moisturize it daily (twice a day), my skin can be dry to normal. Because of my eczema, I like to purchase clinique because the formulas for their products 100% fragrance free and allergie tested; however this foundation is horrible! It has a very light coverage and when I apply a second coat it doesn't help at all. The duration of the foundation bad too! within a few hours I need to re-touch it and I hate that! I also found it hard to match my skin color. Either they were to yellow or to pink and neither one of them belnd well with my skin. I would not recommend this product to any one, even though I love other cliniques products.

Thank God I got a sample first. I asked the lady on the counter for some help to math my skin to one shade and she gave Petal. Fine. I've been using this for 3 days now and I'm not even going to risk finishing my whole one week trial for this... It oxidizes like nobody's business!!! Oompa lumpa face within one hour of application, w/ mac's p+p!! Couldn't believe it! It also starts drying up towards the end of the day and looks patchy. Oh, how could I forget, it leaves a really weird chemically smell on me. Like, disgusting smell. Can't wait to get home and get this stuff off my face.

Well this is another of those foundations that gets very mixed reviews, seems to be love or hate!
This is awful on me. My face felt oily within 10 minutes of application on my T zone but my cheeks felt tight and uncomfortable!
It's very runny and messy to apply.
The colour I was matched to is called 'Ivory' but this is NOT Ivory as most sane people would understand it...on me this is ORANGE. This is not a good colour for PPP skin. I'm not sure if the shades are the same between UK/Europe and North America and other countries, but the SA described this shade as 'very fair' for neutral skin tone which sounded perfect for me. It is not.

Ok so i tend to never wear foundation, or powder esp. in the daytime during the summer because I have oily/combination skin but I'm a firm believer in moisturizer and I find that the combination creates a messy running mess. However, I decided to try this foundation because there are a few things I love from clinique (all about eyes gel, high definition mascara, the toner in the purple bottle) and the zero-gravity face lift which I use at nights esp. after a night of partying, the next morning even if I only get 3 hrs of sleep, the skin on my face is soft, supple, hydrated, and I swear it sucks in my round face and gives me cheekbones (however too heavy for day wear) .... Anyhow, back to the point, Tried it, loved it! it's the best so far... but my search hasn't stopped.
