    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

    I used this product for the first time today. The coverage is much better than I was expecting, and it doesn't feel like I have anything on my face! I can't tell yet if it will clear up my pimples since I've only used it once but I have high hopes based on what I'm seeing so far!

      I needed something for trouble spot ache. But I wasn't sure what shade. Sales women tested the shades but suggested the wrong darker color. Outside it's hideous I can't blend it enough.

      Had one of the employees apply makeup to my face looked smooth on face. Applied it next day on my own did not like the way it looked after a couple of hours... I have oily skin and this made my face look even more oily especially in the t-zone area.. Returning product and going back to using bare minerals!

      I used this product under a loose powder foundation, at first it was only to help with oil control, but now I have to use it everyday with a loose powder bc it doesn't cover my acne scars like my old liquid foundation did. But either than that, no complaints here. This product works, I have not had a breakout since I started using this product!

            I've avoided wearing foundation for a long time because I naturally have very sensitive skin. After a few friends recommended this product, I finally caved in and I'm very glad I did! This is the only foundation I have found that does not make me break out. I finally found a foundation that makes my skin look radiant without a cakey or oily feel. I would recommend this to all!

              Since using this product, I have noticed less breakouts. Great to use as a light coverage all week for work without worrying about clogging my pores. It has very light coverage, I just wish I didn't have to keep laying it on..still love it ! Will repurchase for the third time when my bottle gets low.

              • Q:

                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.
