            I tried Clinique because my drug store makeup was just not cutting it anymore. This product is hard to blend and gets very cakey. By my lunch break it was patchy on my chin and around my nose and lip areas. It does feel light weight though and I am fair skinned and did not think it looked orange on me. Tried the stay matte by Clinique and liked it better.

                  This foundation goes on so easily and you only need to use a small amount to get a full coverage look. It doesn't cause me to breakout as I do have sensitive skin, and it lasts all day with a nice smooth look.

                    Will stay on through out the day, minimizes acne and breakouts but separates on oily noses as long as you blot a few times you will be good.

                          Hello! In the Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer formula, the number is actually the shade, so the shade is 01. Sorry for the confusion. If you were interested in trying Acne Solutions Makeup, the closest shade should be Fresh Alabaster.

                        Does this have any SPF in it? Or are there other foundations good for oily, acne-prone skin that have SPF in them? I'm currently using bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Foundation, but it does blend well on my skin and my skin looks very oily when I wear it.

                          This product does not contain an SPF, but it can be coupled with an SPF underneath very nicely. It is great for acne prone skin! Another option is the Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Foundation.
                          If SPF in your foundation is most important to you, you may want to try Clinique's BB cream or Even Better Foundation.
                          Clinique suggests wearing an SPF under any foundation, even if it contains an SPF. The amount of SPF needed for full protection is often more product than most wear or desire in their foundation.
