            Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

            This foundation is absolutely incredible, after having a bad run in with a popular full coverage foundation this foundation was my savoir. I experienced breakouts with a popular foundation and several others from the drugstore as I have very sensitive skin, my mom who used Clinique her whole life recommended them and I will not use another brand again. If you are struggling with breakouts caused by foundation look no further this has changed my skin for the better and I can now go out with foundation when I please. The foundation itself gives a beautiful natural glow to the skin without being to oily as I am an oily skin girl,I receive so many complements when I wear this. I am VERY pale and wear the shade Breeze , I wish it was paler and that Clinique will one day expand the line but It is such as good foundation I can make it work.

                I dont wear foundation much but this definitely felt better and easier application than pur which i typically buy. I got this on a whim due to a wedding & not being able to have spf in it (beyond me). one of the only brands with out. Perfect color match which forr being as pale as i am.. is wonderful. Alot of lights are actually still darker than my tone

                I used to wear Clinique all the time as a teen and I decided to try it again. First of all, there STILL isn't a light enough shade for my fair skin plus all of them oxidize. The coverage is far from full. I can still see my acne spots but it does cover redness after two layers. Not a fan of this.

                  Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

                  This is my most favorite foundation that I've ever used. I have been searching for the perfect foundation that looked good over my dry patches, and stayed put over my oily patches. This foundation is the one. It also matches my skin tone better than any product I've tried before. I am fair skinned, but have VERY neutral undertones, and while most foundations are too cool, or too warm, the Ivory 03 matched my skin color flawlessly. I couldn't be happier with this product

                        Hi! SPF is one difference. The other difference is the texture. Superbalanced Silk contains real silk so it has more of a satin feel. The Superbalanced Silk formula is also suited for a combination to even more of an oilier skin type. Thank you for your question!

                    • Q:

                      I have dry sensitive skin with large pores and some redness in my cheeks and nose, would you recommend this product? I have recently tried this product and even using a primer and setting it with powder it seems to wear off after a couple of hours and not help with my dry patches.

                        Hi! I am so sorry to hear this! This foundation is an option for you, but there are many options that are available for your skin type. If you are feeling tightness in your skin you may want to try Clinique's Moisture Surge CC Cream, as it will add hydration to your skin.
                        If you are noticing Dry patches or flakiness on the surface, this shows a need for additional exfoliation. You may want to add Clarifying Lotion twice a day to your skin care routine. You could also use a manual exfoliating product like Clinique's 7 day scrub cream.
                        If you are interested in trying the foundation on your skin, we offer free foundation matching each day in Ulta doors that carry a full line of Clinique product. Thank you for reaching out, as we want to make this right and find your perfect foundation at Clinique!
