i had this years ago-i remember it being a good foundation, but obviously not 'wow' enough to make me buy it again because i only bought it twice.
i used this religiously for about 2 years night and day, convinced it was doing me good. but it doesnt its a pointless product. its just alcohol, why would you wanna do that to your skin, it will dull out and dry out your skin. i like clinique stuff a lot, but dont buy in to this, its crap. i would use it again but not on a daily basis like they suggest, maybe once in a while on a deep cleanse and exfoliate day or something, but thats it.

i think this is called anti blemish solutions cleansing foam over here (UK) anyways its great, used at night . really deals with the bad boy spots and its a great preventative too. but it will dry out your skin so use sparingly and every other night depending on the severity of your problem. have a good moisturiser at hand. its excellent for removing all your make up too. love it.

thank you to everyone who recommended this. id never used a powder before because i never liked the idea of it. bought this a couple of days ago and since everyone has been saying how well and pretty i look. (i didnt tell them it was the foundation!) anyways i love it. good natural cover up especially for old acne scars, i use a bit of boujois 10hr sleep effect underneath for a bit of a healthy glow, then apply this. im so pleased. im putting aside my stila gloopy liquid foundation, this is the match ive been after for daywear. the packaging and brush is crap though
my favourite lip gloss, luminescent without being over shiney, so nice in the day or night time, quite natural. its sssssssoooo expensive, but i love it so much, i treated myself and would have it in my pocket wherever i went....until some bitch stole it. very upset. im waiting until i get a better income to justify buying it again...but i will. oh yes.

sexxxxy quality blusher. its very pink but still warm. sucker for the chanel packaging, everytime.
this is a brilliant foundation. its not that a good cover up if you have blemishes but it really really brightens your skin in a really natural way like nothing Ive ever tried before and ive been through all the expensive brands because im a make up snob, but this is better than any of them. its so lightweight aswell so you dont feel like youre wearing anything, so its not going to clog up your pores. dont layer on too much though as it can have a mattyfying chalky effect but otherwise its amazing, buy it.

ive got problem skin and this is a really really good cover up yet still reasonably light weight which is what i love. if youre skins oily it corrects that sh*t. nice finish.not a glowy foundation. matte and natural. just be careful not to apply to much. other wise you look crusty and grey.
very boring but very safe bronzer. if youre scared about bronzers then buy this. i stopped buying it because it was time to be a bit more daring and sparkly.

loved this to death. really really nice. not orange. sun kissed glow. but towards the end especially when the pinky middle bit runs out just makes your face look dirty
Its so hard to get the balance right, in the day time if you apply it you have to be so careful, because it is so thick and gloopy -itll cake up in the sides of your nose, NOT A GOOD LOOK! its also to shimmery in the day time. so use sparingly unless youre a glamour queen. its also not a good cover up at all, if you have blemishes. if your skin is oily this is a no-no, its too gloopy. however, you can get away with loads at night and still look natural with a fantastic glow, and this IS A GOOD LOOK... This foundation doesnt seem to last that long though because the consistency is quite thick, but it goes on quite nicely with foundation brush. if havent got oily skin and youre not in to matte foundations then id say give this a go because it could work well. for me i wil not be buying again.
nice packaging. its too thick i find. didnt know how to apply and too pale for a yellow to medium skintone. if you suffer from bumpy skin, this will highlight it and probably aggravate it because the consistency doesnt seem to sit well on your skin.

i wore this for years. it did me well-achieved the glow. really not good for oily skin though because glow tends toward shiny/oil slick. not a good look. but good foundation, you just have to make sure you get exactly the right colour and apply it by dabbing it on, dont rub other wise its a big no-no. only thing is that it didnt adapt to my skin tone in the winter when im pale, so it was a bit of a seasonal product for me. the only reason i stopped using it is because i needed a better cover up and just wanted a change. id reccommend it. i think its underrated
