            Love this foundation so much I've been using it everyday since I've purchased it. I have so many drug store to high end foundations but this one is really my fave right now especially because of the summer heat! It lasts all day w a nice matte finish. I've gotten so many compliments on my skin since I started using this product. I have oily skin and I put it on at around 7am and don't take it off until 10pm and it still looks impeccable.

                          Had this product for a few months now, wanted to love it but was completely the wrong shade. I have very fair/porcelain acne prone and sensitive skin and bought this in the lightest shade of this line, linen. Color was too dark, patchy, unnatural and didn't sit well with any primer or skin prep. Rubbed off of my face easily even when set. Coverage was ehh, might have been better if it was my shade.
                          Waited to see if worked better in summer when I'm the tiniest bit tanner but still looked all sorts of wrong.
                          Will keep just to try/use on other people's skin that slightly darker.

                              Clinique's Acne Solution Foundation does contain ingredients that helps to keep pores clean through exfoliation.
                              Clinique's Stay Matte Oil Free Makeup keeps skin matte and fresh all day. It's primary purpose is to absorb oil on the skin. It is great for anyone that has a concern with shine during the day!

                            I was interested in this foundation, but I don't have a local ULTA to test colors. I have light skin, with more of a yellow tone than pink. What shade would I be? I was afraid Alabaster was too pink but linen was too light.

                              Thank you for your interest in this product. All foundation formulas are unique, so the best way to find your perfect match is to visit the Ulta store nearest you that carries a full line of Clinique to be color matched. We offer complimentary color matching daily, and you can even try a sample at home if you prefer. If that is not convenient for you, I can suggest a possibility, but it will not be a guaranteed match without trying it on your skin. You may want to try Neutral or Honey to start. We look forward to working with you in the near future!
