      This foundation simply makes it look as though I have perfect skin. Any blemish marks fade away to barely visible. My skin just looks smooth and clear. It doesn't cause my skin to break out. And my skin feels better when I wash it away at the end of the day than it did before I put it on.

        I have really bad acne scars and this covers them FLAWLESSLY! I also have very oily/acne prone skin and have not had any breakouts since using this. It isn't heavy and it doesn't look "cakey." By far the best foundation on the market for my type of skin!!!!

        Daughter loves this

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

        I bought this for my 13-year old daughter, who has developed a bit of acne. She wanted something she could wear to be more comfortable in. The girl at Ulta showed this product to her and how to apply. It has salicylic acid in it to help with breakouts and definitely gives her good coverage. It is a bit heavier, but I need to work with her on application to ensure she isn't over doing it, but it's a great product.

        Color name misleading

        By Jill from CT

        from Connecticut

        About Me Brand Buyer

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

        I didn't even get to try this foundation because Fresh Fair is a solid medium tone- And when you're the fairest of the fair in skin tone, you expect something called fair to maybe kind of be close to, you know, a fair skin tone. In the photo here on Ulta it is shown in order as the lightest one- in person, even the outside color of the foundation alone looks nothing like online. It is incredibly dark for being listed as a "very fair" foundation and is super orange. I'm hesitant to even purchase Alabaster. Will have to get to a store this time to see it before I buy. Very disappointed- completely deceiving.

        It's an okay foundation . I liked the fact that it had shades for black women . I didn't want to spend $48 on the smash box but I guess I will next time . One thing I love is that it has a matte finish no shine. But it doesn't cover the best. Can still see my dark circles and scars . Have to put a lot over the scars . It also smells like alcohol from the medicine in it which I'm not a fan of . But it was cheaper and better than my bare minerals one so that's a plus . If you have scars I'd go with a different brand .

          Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

          My favorite foundation by far! I have dry, but oily acne prone skin. First of all it applies super smooth (even with your fingers) and dries almost immediately. The coverage is amazing and when you apply more on top it doesn't look cakey or flaky. Not only does it cover acne well but I have seen significant improvement in my acne! My pores genuinely are smaller and my pimples have been going away faster than usual. If you have dry skin like me, I recommend applying a good oil free moisterizer before using this foundation. Also a small amount of this stuff goes a LONG way! I'm applying half the amount of foundation I was using previously!

            Hi, I've been trying out the CC+ medium in it cosmetics but I have acne prone skin so would the acne solutions liquid cover up my blemishes? CC+ corrects my skin tones but doesn't fully cover blemishes so I was wondering if it would be better to try acne solutions?

              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.

              A:

              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.
