    For years I have struggled with self esteem due to blemishes and breakouts. This product not only covers all blemishes extremely well but it also helps prevent further breakouts. It is the best product I've ever used and has helped me rebuild my self esteem.

      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation! I cannot rave enough about it! I have been using this foundation for a little over 4 years now and I have not found anything quite like it. It is great for everyday use being that it is lightweight, not cake on the face, blends easily, and actually helps with breakouts! I have struggled with acne for a better part of my teen and now early adult years, and this foundation is a life saver. It does not cause un needed excess breakouts after use everyday. I am in love with this foundation and the shade fresh alabaster matches me perfectly!

                      Hi! I am noting the ingredients in this product below for your reference. All Clinique products are hypo allergenic and they are also all allergy tested. We test each and every product on live people 7200 times to guarantee it is safe. If one person has any type of reaction, we reformulate the product. Safety is very important to Clinique.
                      If you are looking for a powder to simply set your foundation, I suggest Clinique's Blended Face Powder. They are transparent and feel weightless on skin.
                      active ingredient: salicylic acid 0.50%
                      other ingredients: methyl trimethicone / water\aqua\eau / dipropylene glycol / alcohol denat. / nylon-12 / butylene glycol / talc / peg-10 dimethicone / dimethicone / trimethylsiloxysilicate / silica / laminaria saccharina extract / calcium stearate / isononyl isononanoate / caffeine / glycerin / hydroxyapatite / dimethicone/peg-10/15 crosspolymer / sorbitan sesquioleate / dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer / triethoxycaprylylsilane / quaternium-90 bentonite / 10-hydroxydecanoic acid / lecithin / tocopherol / sodium chloride / tromethamine / propylene carbonate / alumina / disodium edta / sodium citrate / phenoxyethanol / [+/- titanium dioxide (ci 77891) / iron oxides (ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499) / mica] < iln36140>

                      Hi! Acne solutions is great for anyone that has a concern with breakout in the skin. If you are suffering from breakout, this could be a nice option for you. If not, a few other options for combination skin are items such as Clinique's Superbalanced Silk Makeup, Clinique's Chubby in the Nude foundation, and many more. If you like to try things before you buy them, you also have the option of visiting the Ulta store near you that carries a FULL line of Clinique product. An expert can help color match and even offer a sample to try. We look forward to working with you!

                    Hi I'm looking for a good foundation but I'm having trouble finding a good fit. I have a pretty bad allergic reaction to anything with SPF in it. Also, I have combination skin (some parts are very dry while others are oily with acne). I also have rosacea on my cheeks. Do you think this could be a good match for me? Do you have any other recommendations?

                      Hi! This foundation gives about the same amount of coverage as Even Better Foundation.
                      If you are looking to cover redness, you may enjoy Clinique's Redness Solutions Foundation. The undertone and calming agents in the foundation conceal redness nicely.
                      If you are looking for the most coverage, you may want to try Clinique's Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer. They are both nice options, based on what you are looking for.
                      I am noting some possible color options in these formulas below. We also offer free sampling in all Ulta stores that carry a full line of Clinique product if you would like to try these options before you purchase. We would love to treat you to this service.

                    What is a good powder (same brand) that I can use with this foundation.. I'm afraid of the stay matte because this is a very matte foundation. I use the Becca Luminous backlight primer with this, and it has helped. This is the only foundation that has not caused surface bumps.. I have combo skin, and don't want to get flakey in my dry areas.

                      A:

                      It sounds like you are basically looking for something to set your foundation in a lightweight finish. I suggest trying Clinique's Blended Face Transparency Loose Powder. It looks very natural on skin with a full coverage foundation. I am happy to hear this foundation is working well with your skin. You may want to also try something like Clinique's 3 step skin care system for oily skin as a daily cleansing system. It is a wonderful partner and will help minimize the risk of any surface bumps on the skin. Thank you for your question.
