I have to say, this might be an HG for me. I'm in my late 30's and for me, it provides the coverage I want and need. It it very thick, but a little goes a long way. You really don't need much of this to do your whole face. The first time I tried this, I pumped out waaaaay too much and in turn, used waaaay too much on my face and it did look mask-like. Now I'm more used to just how much I need, so my face looks better after application. Its oil-free and works great on my sometimes dry, sometimes oily, sensitive skin. I still have my two other Clinique foundations that work well for me (Superfit and Dewy Smooth), but this one might take the top award.
UPDATE: I have found that this doesn't work well with foundation primers. At least the ones I've tried, so I brought it down to 4 lippies. When I used this with a primer, the foundation broke-down by the end of the day. Not a pretty site. I still use this, but only sparingly. My Clinique Dewy Smooth works better since I can use that with primers without issue.

So far, so good. Second day of trying this (FYI I am mid-30's, very dry and sensitive, pale with red cheeks!) have been using Prescriptives Virtual Skin for years (Real Porcelain) and while I love the texture the color is not an exact match. Problem is my neck is WAY lighter than my face (thanks to all the red) and I have a terrible time not looking mask-like if I get a foundation that matches my face. I read about this from Cosmetics Cop question about this same problem; Paula suggested trying a more full-coverage makeup that closely matched my neck. Tried this in Fair Neutral, and looks great so far. Dewy, not shiny (but I am very dry) and it's like an ERASER for my face! gets rid of all the red, and I used as concealer as well. Wore it for a workout last night, and it lasted no problem. No reactions so far. Worth a try if you don't mind heavier coverage (not noticeably, IMO) and have dry skin and similar skin tone issues as mine.

I bought this foundation after being recommended it by a friend. I find Repairwear excellent: it gives great coverage, goes on lovely, stay all day, skin looks flawless and the Neutral shade (#05) is perfect for me. Moreover, SPF 15 offers protection from the sun and this is absolutely essential to prevent the skin damages.
In this light, I highly recommend Repairwear foundation but try a sample before buy the bottle, it will work if you have dry/normal skin. This make-up is quite pricey in Italy (€ 29=$ 35) but, of course, I'd buy it again.

Thick, pasty and mask-like.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I would recommend this product to anyone working on a stage theater... Way too much coverage, plus it's hard to blend on and smooth on your skin. I even had difficulties trying to remove it... I suppose it can be great for an acne-prone skin, or for covering veins, as it covers excellently, but I want my skin, although uneven and much less than perfect, to look through, so I won't use it again.

I loved the coverage (full IMO) and it made my skin look radiant, luminous, and dewy. I also liked the covenient pump bottle. It didnt dry my skin out, but it did break my skin out-by the end of the day. It was an allergic reaction to whatever ingredients were in the bottle, however keep in mind that I have VERY sensitve skin that can react to numbers of things more than the average person. And because of how well it looked on my skin, it is a hate it or love it product for me. In fact, I think this would have become my current ( im always trying new fndtns) holy grail fndtn. for the time being, if it hadnt broken me out.

Wow, I am suprised by all the bad reviews on this. I can honestly say that this is the ONLY and I mean ONLY Clinique fndt that I have been happy with thus far...I have tried every single one that Clinique has come out with too. Maybe the people that have tried this dont have the skin type for it. I am 27 with normal skin prone to PMS acne, large pores, and sightly uneven skin tone with a few early lines around my eyes. I am NC 20-25 and I have this in buff. The lightest shade Alabaster is really light maybe NC 15-20 but has more of a neutral pinky tone while buff is more yellow/golden. It is a natural finish and on me it looks like my skin but way better. I use this with my fingers and use just a dab. It is thick but it spreads fine to me. I use DDMG under it since it has spf in it and a reg sunscreen for my neck and ears. I cant do chemical sunscreens so this works for me. It lasts on me for about 11-12 hours and only blot once with paper around lunch. This works great for winter although I dont know if it may be too moisturizing for summer since my MU melts off no matter what I use. This comes in a pump for 28.50 USD which is very reasonable to me. This has not caused any additional breakouts for me either but that may be due to my skincare though (Clinique Acne Solutions anti bac bar, mild clarifying toner and DDMG) I love this stuff but if you are leary of thick, moisturizing, coverage fndts get a sample and try it out for a week in all conditions, hot, cold, indoor and outdoor to see how it hold up for you) Good job Clinique for this one as well as the color selections for once! We all dont have peach or pink faces! EDIT:
Like the previous reviewer patsyo, this really DOES seem to look better as the day goes on! This week alone I test drove Chanel Vitalumiere and Shiseido lifting fndt, and took them both back and am now $90 richer! They looked AWFUL and didnt last at all compared to the wonderful finish and durability of this one...plus it was cheaper!

Very unimpressed! I received a sample and tested it on a small area. It was very difficult to apply to an even finish. And I had moisturized, as always. The part that concerns me most is that I was unable to wash this off my skin ... and I tried with 3 different types of cleansers. I can't imagine what effect this would have on my skin in the long run. No thanks, Clinique.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
too much coverage for me. My skin is not bad enough to need this much coverage. The only way to use this without looking made up is to use a moisturizer under it to thin it out a bit. The 12% sunscreen (titanium dioxide) is great but, it is simply too thick. Coverage is heavy. This is very close to being like continuous coverage makeup. There's no way this foundation will work with clinique's loose powder over it. Both are too thick. EDIT: Dumb me. I gave it another try and I still have to return it. This makeup is thick even if you use a teeny bit of it. It does not last past noon. I am very, very disappointed in clinique. I have given this 2 tries and I will not try it again. Too thick, does not last. good protection is all it can offer.

This is an awesome foundation, but it's not good for those with even as much oil in their skin as someone with combination skin. I thought I could use it, but it was gone from my t-zone as the day went on. The coverage is awesome. I give it 5 lippies because I know it would be awesome for someone prone to dry skin. Too bad it only lasted until lunch for me :(

This is a beautifully innovative foundation. Superbly moisturizing, extremely concealing, definitely smoothing. I only need to apply a tiny, tiny amount to cover my entire face. I don't even need concealer. Blends seamlessly with my skin (my color is Alabaster Breeze) and doesn't settle into any lines, nor does it look fake. It wears well and stays throughout the day. Very hydrating for my combination/dry skin. The list of ingredients really sold me (another reviewer was kind enough to post them here): Exotic, unique, all designed to deeply hydrate, protect and smooth the skin. It's funny; one of the salespeople at the Clinique counter looked at me funny when I asked for this, because I am only in my 20's; what would I want with an antiaging makeup? But I think this suits women of any age. Besides, prevention is good!

I just can't stick with one foundation, but I have been using this about a week. I know, this is not a long time. I must say I love it! You just have to be very careful about application. One short pump is more than enough otherwise it looks way too thick. If you think it is not enough, wait just a few minutes and you will be surprised at the beautiful finish. It lasts all day and just seems to get better looking. I also use prescriptives flawless and love it too but I have been reaching for repairwear more often. Another tip - go light on the moisturizer also.

This is a very good makeup for those with dry skin who prefer or require a full coverage foundation and a matte look. It will not last if you have lots of oil in your skin. It does not work with the Repairwear Moisturizer for very dry skin because the foundation is thick and that moisturizer is thick and if you put both of those over lines, your lines are accentuated. It works best on me with Lancome's Renergie Microlift moisturizer with SPF 15. It will work with Clinique Superdefense moisturizer for very dry skin but when paired with that moisturizer, the foundation has more of a shine. If your skin is young and perfect but dry that's fine but if you have some fine lines around the mouth, shine accentuates lines and flaws. Clinique Repairwear Foundation in honey works well on this 54 year old woman.

I LOVE the finish and blendability of this (very smooth), LOVE the physical sunscreens, the coverage is really good, in fact, too good, for me. I have experimented mixing it with moisturizer (Olay Complete sensitive, as well as some non-sunscreens), which makes it a little more sheer, but still more than medium coverage. It mixes easily with sunscreens and moisturizers (probably not ones w/ avobenzone though) For this reason, I love it as concealor for redness, but not on my whole face, at least not without mixing moisturizer with it. The other problem is that the lightest shade (Alabaster) is still a wee bit too dark for me (NC20, PC Nude, Almay Buff, Lancome Renergie Porcelain 10), especially with the full coverage, but it still seems to be imperceptible on red spots/pimples, etc. It's not totally matte, but it does seem to stay in place, which is good because I often have f/d slip into my laugh lines. This one doesn't do that (and I don't use powder) unless I mix it with the moisturizer. It isn't really moist either, but it isn't drying and doesn't seem to highlight flakes. If the color were closer to perfect, I'd love this for those occasions I wanted good full coverage (like really red days, or special occasions). It didn't seem to irritate my skin, but it may clog pores a little (although I could just as easily attribute this to something else). I might buy it as a concealor when I use up the sample (maybe next time there's a gift). UPDATE: I bought to use as concealor, which is difficult with the pump, I always get too much. I prefer squeeze tubes really, but for use as f/d, this pump is ok.

I was so excited to see this at my local dept store and to learn it had an all physical sunscreen w/ titanium and zinc(I can't use chemical ss on my rosacea.) MA fitted me with a color after a little verbal struggle--she wanted to put me in a pink-based color; I def wanted a yellow-toned color cause I'm a yellow-toned LLL and yellow tones help tone down my rosacea. I won--yeah! and rushed home to apply. I first applied to my neck for irritation test. No reaction. So next day applied to one portion of my n/d face. This foundation did not spread easily for supposedly a "moisturizing" formula. So tried again next day w/ moisturizer underneath. Worked better but was getting full coverage everytime, and I don't really want that heavy of coverage unless I'm having a rosacea flare as I think it's aging on me. Tried it another day: Still hard to spread, still full coverage, not loving the finished product altho it looked ok after several hours. Meanwhile I noticed that on the side of my face where I was testing this I was getting some new bumps. Discontinued use for a couple of days and noticed the bumps healing. My Conclusion: 1)I don't think this is a good fit with my rosacea. 2)The finish is def not that moisturizing. 3)I got only full coverage; to get less you'd really have to work at it. 4) Very hard to spread on n/d skin---maybe combo folks would like this more. This will be a return.

I was looking for a new foundation for the upcoming cooler months, and decided to try this. It is very heavy feeling on, and for some reason never seemed to totaly blend in. It kind of sat on top of my face. It has very full coverage, if that's what you are looking for, and you only need a small amount to do your whole face. Although it is not greasy, it left a sort of sheen that I didn't like at all. I am going to exchange ot for something else. I did like the pump dispenser, though.

on a quest to find a nice clinique foundation, i tried this one. it went on thick as a mask and oxidized quite a bit after only half an hour.
on the plus side, using only two coats i was able to completely cover a black tattoo. this foundation reminds me of the type of makeup stage performers would use, it seems way too thick and opaque for daily use.

I purchased this and wore it for one day, about 10-12 hours. I noticed some building redness late in the day, but I often get redness due to various issues. When I washed this off what I saw was a angry red rash, some type of reaction, all over. This is the only new product I have used so I know it was from this product. I was trying to save some money and try Clinique again, but it is not to be. It is no wonder - take a look at how long the ingredient list is. Crazy. I have tried many foundations, and have gotten maybe one or two pimples if they reacted with my skin, but nothing like this. Beware this product. For reference, I have mature, combo skin that is acne prone, but not usually this bad!

This is a very nice foundation. Very different. A half a dab will do ya. This has some serious coverage if you want it to but thins out nicely also to light to medium. You may or may not use a powder with it. I think a too matte powder would ruin the glowy finish so I have been using the gentle light powder with it. This foundation does NOT oxidize and stays color true all day. Good job C!
