A foundation-and-concealer in one for a natural, beyond perfected look that lasts all day. Lightweight, moisturizing makeup covers thoroughly without clogging pores. Skin breathes comfortably, colour stays true, even through sweat and humidity.

Due to the rich pigment level that enhances this flawless coverage makeup, shades may appear deeper when first applied. Once blended completely and allowed to dry, Beyond Perfecting Makeup will melt into your skin for a Beyond Perfected flawless look. A little goes a long way!

Using the large backside of the wand, sweep foundation across your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Then use the angled tip of the applicator - that has a slight dip in it to hold more product - to cover down the bridge of the nose and across the jawline. Blend well with fingers. Finish by using the pointy tip to spot conceal any trouble areas - under the eyes, around the outside of the nose, on top of blemishes. Pat and blend well with fingers.

    Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

    I have used this product most of 2015/2016. I have a very sensitive red face (though I do not breakout but have heard good things from friends who breakout and have tried it) and this was absolutely perfect for covering my redness. It made my skin look healthy and fresh and I would often get compliments on it at work and school. I have very dry skin in the winter so this product had no problem staying on. It wasn't until summer (May-ish) came around I noticed it melting off and oxidizing so I knew immediately I had to go get a lightweight summer foundation. If you live in areas that are not humid I 100% recommend this foundation it is wonderful, otherwise it might just fall off or just use a setting spray everyday.

      Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

      I worked for Clinique for 3 years and have tried lots of foundations, and i have got to say this is the best foundation i have tried for Combination oily to oily skin that clinique has put out. I am the lighter shade in every foundation and this color matches perfectly and blends well. Cons: I do not like the wand very much and also the dewy feel after application because of how oily i am but i set with stay matte powder by clinique as well and it looks great. I am a Clinique girl all the way. The products helped clear up my acne problems and their makup never breaks me out.

            I have some discoloration on my face and this is the only product I have used that balances my complexion perfectly! I wasn't even going to buy make up when I tried it. I was blown away by the coverage and immediately purchased it. And I am not one to spend money unless I really love something.
