I got a sample of this and was really excited about it helping with redness. This made almost no difference to the redness on my face. A regular primer and foundation would do the same thing. I find that pretty bad considering this is promoted at being the best for redness. This also left my skin looking horrible. It was cakey looking and the foundation settled in my lines, the barely there lines looked huge. I frankly would not even buy a small version nonetheless the full size that is overpriced. I would advise anyone with redness to avoid it.

I tried this one on Clinique counter and it looked fine, much better than my Max Factor foundation. But I made a mistake and bought it straight away, I really should wait a couple of hours and see, how my face will look!
Nedless to say - after 2-3 hours my face starts looking very oily and foundadtion clump in my pores. My skin look much older and tired.
I also have really fair skin and ligtest colour (alabaster) looks too orange in normal light. I can't really see any effect it has on redness, maybe because colour of the fundation is too warm itself to cover it.
I'm really dissapointed and not going to buy this one again.

I think this would be a great drugstore foundation. Unfortunately, it's sold as a "higher end" makeup product. I think the coverage is barely medium and as far as reducing redness, it doesn't do anything better than any other foundation. I was actually expecting this foundation to not have the same weird pink-y tones as all Clinique foundations do since it's supposed to conceal redness, but I was wrong. Still the same pink hue and still not a decent shade for fair people (Mind you, I'm an NC 15 normally). It lasts for a few hours and does wear off. It doesn't break me out the way a MAC foundation does. Also, if you're into "satin" finishes, then this may be a good choice for you but I like my foundations to "dry" sort of. I don't like the idea of my makeup rubbing off on someone's shirt if I hug them (which happened with this foundation). I received this as a present so I'm not really sure of the price but it probably was in the middle. Some of you may be reading this and saying I'm being much too picky and yes that's true, but I'm very picky with foundations. I'm just going to stick to my MUFE Mat Velvet + because at least I can get a shade that matches my skin.

I love this foundation, but i have very pale skin and i feel the lightest shade (Calming Alabaster) is a little too orange for me. It looks fine if and when i have fake tanned, but not when i have a white neck and brown face! I really wish clinique would have a better colour range and this foundation works perfectly for me in every other way :(.
But if your lucky enough to have a colour match and have problems with everyday redness then this is a must buy!
PROS: Good coverage; but i do feel that i have to reapply on my chin maybe once or twice as i do have a habit of touching my face during class time. Price is also great. Definitely calmed down my redness, in congunction with the redness solutions everyday moisturiser.
CONS: again not enough colour range. Does appear very shiny to start with, i have to apply powder over to give me a more natural glow. Not the best packaging, cant see how much youve got left and its also not easy to get out as its becoming emptier.

I can't say this is a bad foundation, but I definitely don't think it is the best out there. I wish I could give it a 3.5 rating.
The colour match 01 Alabaster is perfect for my NW20 skin, but I'm not the palest person around so I don't think those with very pale skin would be able to find a colour match.
I told the SA I wanted buildable coverage, and she directed me to this. TBH I don't think the coverage is that buildable unless you wanted to look like you absolutely caked it on. It is definitely a medium coverage only.
The finish is also too dewy for me - would probably look lovely on dry skin, but it makes me look too oily in too short a time.
Not really sure if it does much for redness. I still need to use a concealer over any angry bumps.
Also the Clinique packaging really annoys me. The metal lid just gets covered in fingerprints and looks dirty all the time.
I'll use it until it's finished but I probably will not repurchase. I've had just as good experience from much cheaper drugstore foundations.

I found this to be too heavy for my oily-ish skin. The lightest shade 01 Calming Alabaster was a good match for my warm NC20 skin and the coverage was good - it does actually do a decent job of hiding redness - but the finish isn't very natural and the foundation wore off unevenly throughout the day on me (although I must admit that most foundations don't last very well on my skin). Also, I'm pretty sure this broke me out. Overall a disappointment :(
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I have sensitive, ruddy, acne-prone skin, and a few acne scars. When I saw a foundation that could potentially tackle the redness, I purchased it right away. The lightest shade seemed way too dark for my fair skin, and it did not go on smoothly, even with primer. It settled into the few fines lines I have, and my skin broke out after I used it. With regard to the breakouts, I thought it might be a coincidence, and used it a few different times over the span of two months with the same result. Not impressed.

I went to the Clinique counter in search of foundation one afternoon, and the saleswoman took one look at my skin and said, "I have the perfect foundation for you." (That's how red my skin is, I'm afraid.) This foundation really is a solution to redness; she applied a very small amount to my skin, and it took away the redness immediately. It's not drying, not irritating, the coverage is consistent, and it looks quite natural on the skin. I noticed in the store that the color looked off, but I decided to check it out myself and got a sample of the lightest shade, Alabaster.
When I went out to my car I noticed immediately the color issue with this foundation. It wasn't just a touch too dark, but rather WAY too dark. (For reference, I think I'm about an NC10 with neutral undertones.) Seeing as how many women with redness also have very pale skin -- more prone to it, maybe, or just it shows up more? -- wouldn't it make sense to offer a few very fair shades in this collection?
In short, I agree with other reviewers who complain about the color range. The formulation is good, and maybe even great, but my goodness the lightest shade is too dark. I imagine the shade range might work on NC/W 20-25 or darker. If you have redness, and have light or darker skin I definitely would urge you to check this out. If you have redness and are super fair, look elsewhere.

I have very pale skin with freckles had acne get the few occasional spots and have acne scars with a little bit of redness. Seen this advertised and thought it would be good however, the lightest shade was well too dark for me. Aside from the colour, I thought the foundation was a tad too heavy and looked like it could block my pores if I wore it for long enough. Wouldn't recommend for people with large open pores.

Clinique Acne solutions makeup works better to cover redness than this stuff does.
I find the finish too shiny and too orange.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I really like clinique foundations , they give me a radiant dewy finish, which my dry skin loves and the fair shade usually blends in perfectly with my skin tone. I have been using the even better and decided to switch to the redness solutions as my rosy cheeks a huge pet peeve of mine and but it was too heavy. It left my skin looking mask like and unnatural. Ive decided to keep it however because if I use a tiny bit mixed with my tinted moisturizer its very good for layering over problem areas.

Loving this with light coverage and brush application. I'm not a clinique fan and could have done without very heavy sales approach to 'switch brands' when I purchased. That aside this works on my slightly dry, slighty red skin and I will be buying again.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Olive, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Hazel
I bought this foundation thinking that it would help mask some of the redness I get from acne and the acne treatments my doctor has prescribed for me. I really don't think it does any better than any other foundation as far as covering the redness, and I can't say it really treated the redness either. Maybe this is just for people with rosacea??? Either way, my skin got really oily with this after a few hours, and it tended to clump when it became oily. I continually have to battle with oiliness though; I haven't found a foundation that really holds up against my greasy skin! I'm trying Make Up For Ever's waterproof makeup next so we'll see....

I use - and love! - the Redness relief daily moisturiser so I thought I'd try the foundation in the range. Three months later and I really don't like at all.
I'm very fair and the lack of shades means even the lightest one is still a bit too dark and orangey for me. Application isn't very easy and I have to blend it immediatey after sunblock while my skin is still damp. It cakes and makes my skin feel tight within a few hours ;-(

I have purchased just about every foundation out there from the very top of the line to the more reasonable drugstore variety--this foundation, in my opinion is all I will ever need from now on. I use the Alabaster, I have fair skin, that tends to get blotchy--this makeup controls the blotchiness and what I like the best is the natural look. I only need a little and at my age, that is all I really need because too much brings out the age of my skin. It looks natural, it blends beautifully. I also like the way it stays all day. The creme blush works best with this foundation and no setting powder is needed, another plus. I am throwing away all my expensive foundations that clutter my drawer and I will only use this product from now on.

Well I purchased this since I have a redness condition. I am so fair and the Alabaster color turned orange on my fair. WOW not helping the red problems. Thanks
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
If you are light skinned you will find a match, but their lightest shade, alabaster, really is for a nw20-25 so it's kind of dark to be "the lightest" shade.
it simply works
i apply with my fingers
works well on faces like mine that get vino - flushing :)

First foundation I bought, and I don't see the point in trying anything else. This is amazing!! I am Asian so my skin has some yellow undertones but this looks very natural on me. I have this in "calming honey" or something like that and it's a perfect match. My skin has redness around the t-zone area and this is perfect for covering redness. When I'm wearing this my skin doesn't get irritated and flushed and it really does calm the redness. Over time it has improved the condition and reduced the redness on my face. The coverage is really good. The bottle is small, but you only need a small drop to get the job done. Even though the coverage is great it is lightweight and I can't feel it at all. A heads up though, this extenuates dryness and rough patches, but that's not much of a problem for me; I have oily skin. Also, it is slightly drying as with most foundations so before hand I like to damp my face with a little water which helps it go on and spread a lot more smoothly. Overall pretty expensive but definitely worth it if you have redness issues.

I am in love with this foundation. When I apply this with a foundation brush it looks like my skin but better, very natural, not masklike at all. I am NW20 and my shade is Alabaster which is a good match. The coverage is medium. The packaging is nice, it is a squeeze tube.
I found out about this foundation after I watched a Youtube video by Lisa Eldridge about the best foundation for acne. She likes to use this one because it is the most "natural looking" foundation. Then in the video she used a Vichy Dermablend foundation as concealer on the acne spots and scars. Instead, I use the MUFE 5 Camouflage Cream Palette for concealer, which I dab on my spots. So, this is currently a HG foundation for me along with Estee Lauder Double Wear which I like for full coverage, but I find the Estee Lauder finish is not as natural looking.

this is really nice, my chin has had a giant red blotch on it from impegio i had a couple of years ago, and my derm. had prescribed me different products for it, but this is the only thing that really worked. after a couple of days, i noticed the redness starting to fade. the color is a little orange-y, but it's not that bad (i can wear it just on my chin and it doesn't look TOO unnatural compared to the rest of my face). A funny thing i noticed was that i just got one of those big, painful pimples on my chin, the ones that are usually bright red, but this one is white, which is kinda nice (:. also, i think this might be sorta expensive to purchase, but it will last forever! a lady at the counter gave me a sample in this TINY little thing about the size of my thumb, and i've been using it everyday for about two weeks, and it's barely diminished! i seriously think a whole bottle cost last over a year
