I've recently been on the hunt for a medium coverage glowy foundation to give me that bit extra on weekends days/nights out (everyday holy grail is Mac Face and Body). Purchased a bottle of this in bone which is the coolest warm tone shade in this particular Clinique foundation. It's sooo orange and I'm not even that light, I can get away with NC20 but I usually wear NC15 / NARS Fiji or C1/C2 so I'm light but not majorly light. The bone shade is shocking for lighter people. It oxidises like crazy - I applied this at 6am under artificial light due to the dark mornings at the moment and was mortified to see the shade at lunch time in daylight - it had oxidised so much and was so orange, I'm more yellow / beige undertone shaded so it's a major disappointment. HOWEVER the foundation itself is really nice and if you can find a shade right for you and you want the that glowy skin but better look then this is good for that. In a bid to get this to work for me I add some whitening drops or mix it with some of my lighter yellow toned foundations so the £30 spent is not entirely wasted but I'd rather not have to mix it with other products. Lasting power could be better and it doesn't compare against the lasting power of my MAC foundations. So all in all I wouldnt buy again unless they release a realistic light warm toned shade but if you get a colour match you might love it. Definitely get a sample first though and check the shade match in real light as store / home lighting can make a shade seem fine when it's really not!
