Of all make up items, I am most picky about foundation. I will freely splurge & spend practically any dollar amount providing I find one I love.

Clinique's "Even Better" is the one I keep coming back to, there may be a foundation out there that performs better for me but I have yet to find it.

The sunscreen is mainly titanium dioxide & zinc oxide, non chemical ingredients that do not irritate my eyes like a lot of the synthetic sunscreens can.
However, a good sunscreen does not mean much if the colors do not work with ones skin tone. Before "Linen" came out I used "Ivory" which looked lovely. Linen has more yellow in it & helps balance out the pink in my face. I've even bought "Alabaster" once & that shade also worked for my fair skin. The shade "Fair" I found to be a tad too dark for me. With that said it can be difficult to decide on a shade since some of them look very similar to one another. Clinique is great about taking back anything that does not work but to avoid this altogether I suggest asking for a sample or two to take home.

This is easy to blend and the texture is silky and has the coverage level I am looking for - medium to almost full. It will dry to a semi-matte finish and even in my dry areas it does not look at all cakey.

I still enjoy trying new foundations - both Drugstore & Department store brands - but if I were stranded on a desert island, this without a doubt, would be the foundation I rely on.
