          My skin is in between fair and medium and I have Acne Rosacea. I need a foundation that covers my redness and acne scars. I bought this product on a whim because of the low price and I love it. I use it for every day make up. Id say the coverage is light to medium. If I want a full on heavy face I wear Smashbox. I've gotten so many compliments on how great my skin looks and how nice my foundation looks and when I tell people how much it costs they can't believe it!

            I am 51 and have very oily skin. This is the only foundation that doesn't make my face feel greasy during the summer months in humid Florida. It is a bit drying in the cooler winter months, so I use a more moisturizing foundation during those months.

                Before switching to clinique, I used mac religiously. I have very acne primed skin and mac was only making it worse. After I started using this product my acne became almost non existent besides a breakout here and there. It's easy to apply, soft full coverage, and heals your skin after each use.

                I wanted a concealer with salicylic acid. The salesperson recommended this product for concealer. The tone was a perfect match. The coverage with great at the store, but did not last long. It is not full coverage which I was hoping for concealer blemishes. I applied it as a foundation but felt it dried my very oily skin, eventhough the percentage of salicylic acid is low.
                Unfortunately, I will have to return it.

                    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!

                    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.

                    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!
