Ask a Question

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 love Clinique products, I recently changed my foundation from Urban Decay naked skin to this foundation and I'm in love with it. The applicator is my favorite because it doesn't waste as much product as a pump would.

I love this but....

By BDR

from CA

Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

I have oily/normal combo skin and it settles into my laugh lines and accentuates my pores on my nose. If I bake and use a pore filling primer I'm good for about 6-8 hours and I have a really nice soft natural finish but anything over 8 and it's a little messy... I'd recommend more to those who are dry/normal but I'll be wearing it if I just have to leave my house to run a few quick errands

Good coverage

By Ashley

from FL

Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

I have rosacea and this covered it pretty well. I also have dry and oily skin and this didn't emphasize any dry patches. It sets well on my skin but if I get oily or sweaty throughout the day it will break up on me and transfer. I think this foundation would be best for me in the winter

    Shade match is off

    By Sarah

    from Chicago

    Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

    I really like this foundation-the coverage is amazing, it lasts all day, it looks good on my combination skin, BUT the first shade is too pink and the next shade is too dark. If they added more neutral shades this foundation would be perfect

        I purchased breeze as it is the lightest color not as yellow as pictured. I went to go buy it at the mall and I purchased the last one after searching 3 department stores. This color is extremely popular it seems. My color is neutral and am very light skin tone.

          This product is just what it says it is; foundation and concealer. I'm pleased that it is thick enough to conceal my scars, but it also light enough to let my freckles and natural skin tone show through.

                Hi! If you are looking for something that offers moisture to the skin during the day, you may want to try Clinique's Moisture Surge CC Cream. Beyond Perfecting Foundation is a wonderful product, and it will not dry your skin at all, but it is not meant to give additional moisture to the skin. If you would like to try these foundations on your skin, we offer free color matching and sampling in our Ulta doors that carry a full line of Clinique products. Thank you for your question, and we look forward to working with you soon!

            • Q:

              I am an African-American woman with medium-toned complexion and yellow undertones. My skin has a tendency to be oily and acne-prone. What color(s) foundation would you suggest? I am leaning towards Cream Caramel. And which formula would you recommend to use for my skin type and for medium-to-full coverage? This one, Beyond Perfecting Foundation or Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum?

              I have noticed that most shades tend to have a pink undertone. I have a warm undertone and I can't seem to find a perfect shade in this foundation. I have tried cream whip, but I find it to has a pink undertone to it. Also, what color is 6.5? Any other color suggestions?

                A:

                Hi! This foundation does not have an spf, so you should not have to worry about flashback. SPF under foundation is a very wise decision, but if you are having photograph's taken on a special day, you may want to consider skipping that step for that day only. Thank you for your question.

                Hi! Powders are great for setting your foundation. This specific powder can actually be used as a foundation itself, as it provides nice coverage. If you are looking for something more sheer in a pressed option, you may want to try Clinique's Stay Matte Pressed Powder. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!

                A:

                We appreciate the opportunity to explain that we do not have a comprehensive list of products that contain or don't contain certain ingredients. However, if you would kindly provide us with the specific product names with which you are interested, we will then consult our laboratories and share our findings with you.

                In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.
