        Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

        I absolutely adore this foundation. I have used it for the past 5 years, and the shade I use matches my skin perfectly. I find the coverage to be moderate, and it feels light on the skin. I often have to use concealer on top for my occasional blemishes, though, because of the moderate coverage. My skin is very sensitive, and I have never had problems with this product. I have found that my skin looks best when I apply this with a damp beauty blender sponge. If one of the shades matches your skin, I highly recommend giving it a try!

                  Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

                  I've been wearing clinique foundation since I started wearing makeup. I've always struggled with shades matching my pale skin and formulas being too thick or breaking me out. I tried out the alabaster shade in store, and upon application it vanished into my skin but covered my blemishes! It's lightweight and I don't feel like it's caked on like the pore-refining formula I had been using that was too dark. I've paired it with the Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation+concealer in breeze to cover some of my darker acne scars. I was also impressed with how many shades this comes in! So if you're looking for coverage but don't want something really heavy, this is for you!

                      • Q:

                        I am very pale with quite yellow undertones. I was wondering which one of these ones could be the best match. Just to give a sense of my skin color, Fair Sand Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation is a perfect match. If not a regular Superbanced foundation - the one with SPF would do too. Thank you!

                          Hi! Breeze or Alabaster should offer the undertone you are looking for in a very light shade range. This foundation is moderate coverage. If you are looking to continue using full coverage foundation, you may want to try Clinique's Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer.
                          I would also like to offer the service of complimentary color matching in any Ulta store near you that carries a full line of Clinique product. We look forward to working with you soon!
