      This product is absolutely amazing. I now consider it a must-have/ go-to item in my makeup bag. I originally was not going to buy from this brand for my foundation, but the woman working the counter that day, Amanda, was kind enough to let me try it and find that it matched my very White-Irish skin beautifully.

            Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Powder Foundation + Concealer:

            I love love love this foundation. I asked a salesperson in store for a recommendation on foundation for someone with oily skin and she showed me this. The pigmentation is wonderful and it matches my skin tone perfectly! When I put it on in the morning (and I put on a light amount), it looks like I've just slightly airbrushed out all the imperfections. It's a matte finish too, which is great for my oily skin.

            It's also affordable (in my opinion), for foundation. I had previously been using a Smashbox powder foundation that was almost double the price of this one, and I love the Clinique foundation SO much more. I purchased the "Ivory" shade, which is great for people with pinky undertones.

              Love that this can be full coverage if need be, or will set your liquid in your tzone to control oil. Medium coverage so if you aren't breaking out nothing else is needed. Quick to apply, live the handy bottom part for the sponge.

                          You can absolutely wear this. I would suggest using less coverage in areas that you are concerned with lines. You may also enjoy the liquid formula for less of a matte finish. Knowing that lining is something you are looking to prevent, a perfect partner would be Clinique Smart Custom Repair Serum. We also carry a nice Smart daytime Moisturizer with SPF that will help to repair and prevent lining.

                          This product does not contain an spf. Clinique has many spf options. You may want to try Clinique's City Block SPF or Clinique Smart Daytime Moisturizer for your spf underneath your foundation.
