Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

It's okay. I was expecting more coverage based on what the sales person told me. It was definitely more hyped up than it should have been. Was also told it's a buildable foundation and that's not completely true. Building with this foundation makes it look worse.

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

    I have been using this foundation for years and refuse to use anything else. I have acne prone skin, so I like the full coverage and the salicylic acid that's included in it. A face primer helps it stay in place for the day, as I also have very oily skin.

        I think it might clog my pores, not sure yet. Going to give it one more week of wear. It's humid here in North Carolina, hot and muggy now, so I don't expect any makeup to last all day without touching up.

          I absolutely love this product. I have tried a lot of foundations and always end up going back to this one. I have very fair-red skin and this foundation gives me the full coverage I need. Adding a light powder on top keeps it lasting even longer!

                  Hi! Fresh Honey or Fresh Vanilla should work nicely for your skin tone. They offer the undertone you are wearing in the same color range. Fresh Vanilla is 1/2 shade darker than Fresh Honey. If you would like to try this product on your skin, we offer free color matching and sampling each day in Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product. We look forward to working with you soon! Have a great week!

                  Hi! You may want to start with Fresh Cream Chamois. Without seeing your skin, it is a bit of a challenge to determine just how light your skin truly is, but it is my goal to help you find one that you enjoy. The best way to find the perfect foundation is to visit an Ulta store near you that carries a FULL line of Clinique product. In these locations only, we offer free color matching and sampling each day. We would love to work with you in person if that is convenient for you. Thank you for your interest and have a great week!

                  A:

                  Hi! Prom is a very exciting time of the year! Have fun! I am glad you are reaching out and we are happy to help. If you are breaking out, it is likely that you are not necessarily dry. I am guessing that you have a need for additional exfoliation and hydration instead of oil. This is a nice foundation, but I would focus on a skin care routine before looking into foundation, as your foundation can only look smooth on exfoliated skin. You may want to look into Clinique's 3 step skin care system in a skin type #3 formula to cleanse, remove dead skin and hydrate. We would love to skin type you, as well as match you with a perfect foundation in one of our Ulta stores. We offer free skin typing, color matching and sampling each day in the Ulta locations that carry a FULL line of Clinique product. We would love to work with you in the near future so we can get your skin and makeup looking perfect for your prom. Have a great time, and thank you for your interest in Clinique!

                I use the ance solutions make a fresh neutral color #3 what colors would be best to order for concealer and powder with the ance solutions trend. The fresh neutral is a bit darker which is okay with summer coming. Looking for what color concealer and powder would be good with the color to blend into skin for year round.

                  A:

                  Hi! You have several options. Clinique's Line Smoothing Concealer should work nicely in the shade Moderately Fair. As for a pressed powder, Stay Neutral should be a nice shade option for you for touch ups during the day. Transparency #3 loose powder is a nice lightweight option for setting foundation. If you would like to try any of these formulas to determine what type of coverage you will enjoy, we offer free color matching each day in all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product. We look forward to working with you! Have a great day!
