THe color match is great on me. The product does not dry to a powder finish as promised. It remains dewy on skin and always causes tiny breakouts in my T zone. The finsih looks great but isnt long lasting . this makeup wipes off so easily it is ridiculous ( in a bad way) onto clothing, towels, kleenexs. Ugh. it builds up in my smile creases too. I wanted to like it but it is just not great. I cant wear it for * hour + days bc it breaks me out and wipes off too easily
Thick and cake-like finish. I wore this for 8 hours and the next few days my face was breaking out. Returned immediately. Color was also not right.
Wonderful foundation. Full to medium coverage. More like a matte finish. Very smooth finish. Great for pictures. Used this foundation for pictures when I had my baby and looked flawless. Just make sure you get the right color for your skin type. Have not really had a problem with break outs. apply with foundation stippling brush or sponge.

Product doesnt really do anything. I can still see the bags under my eyes after i apply it. Have tried it alone, under a primary eye concealer and over,,, still nothing. ugh
This product smells terrible! Too strong of a smell for me even to want to use it. The mascara isnt all that great anyway, just average.
This is a great color on tan skin! Pale skin,not so much. I think its a nice tan/light brown color although my mom did comment that appears greenish and didnt really like it. IF you are tan, go for it, it will look awesome! Sorry to see they are discontinuing it!

A great blush color of reddish-pink-bronzish. Heavily pigmented and has shimmer. Combined is a great late summer/fall blush! I just love the color which goes great on tanned skin. Clinique's products also are awesome for sensitive skin and I have never had any problems with extra breakouts.

A very nuetral nude light blush. For very tan skin this hardly shows up. I mainly wanted to use it for going out at night and there was just no color. I ended up combining this blush with my Laura Mercier Candlelight and using it as a base shimmer.
I used to use the Clarifying Solutions makeup which I really liked. The finish was really dry/ matte however. The New Acne solutions line has only semi-impressed me. It is a natural matte finish ( definitly not as matte as the clarifying solutions) . The bad thing is it darkens after application quite significantly. It doesnt really break me out but may cause a few whiteheads if I wear it 8 + hours. Nothing major. Coverage is moderate to full. OVerall I like it pretty well. Nothing too special though.

I had major breakouts from the take the day off cleansing balm, took that product back and got this one instead. Seriously, I had over 20 breakouts from the balm and had to go to the derm. I started using this product last week as the initial make-up remover followed by my liqued facial soap mild. This is a GREAT product!! It smells awesome (like cold cucumbers) , removes make-up pretty well and does a great job! not sure if it would be enough as a stand alone make-up remover, leaves a lotiony finish. But my breakouts have nearly completely resolved in one week of using the cleanser! I love it! Probably will keep this one to replace the balm ( never again) and my previously used comforting cream cleanser. Love , love, love it!
Good gentle cleanser. Usually use this after the make-up remover. Not overly drying or harsh. Rinses easily.
Pretty good product at removing makeup. Never breaks me out. Very soothing for dry skin. Follow-up with regular cleanser. Overall like it very much
I have been using this cleanser for over 2 years now. Mainly I use it in the morning when Im not wearing makeup. I didnt realize it was a make-up remover til recently. I have used it when I sleep over at other people's houses as an all-in-one fash wash/make-up remover and it seems to to a pretty good job. Does leave a little traces of make-up on cotton swab after toner but not too bad. Good as stand alone wash or as pre-make-up remover wash.
Great shimmery nude brown lipstick/gloss. Provides some moisture. Glossy/semi glassy look. Really like

Ugh! This product broke me out almost immediately after using. One of the main ingredients is Safflower oil. Feels like you are washing your face with vegetable oil. Leaves a heavy film on your face and you must follow-up with other cleanser. This product broke me out like never before! Lots of inflammatory white heads are popping out everywhere. Never again. Washing your face with oil is never a good idea it seems :(
