      My old standby was MAC Studio Sculpt. I decided to change because of the house-paint aroma it has. This foundation is very nice; it looks good, feels nice and light on the face, and is reasonably priced.

        Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

        So I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and so far I really like it! I tried this because I got a free coupon, not usually something I would have tried. I use benefit and bare minerals foundation and have been moderately happy with them. This product is great and so far I am really liking how light it feels on my skin and clean! Yes I said clean, this product gives me the coverage of foundation without the gunkyness or greasy feeling I get from benefit or bareminerals. It feels like I am barely wearing anything. This products also blends really well on my skin! I may switch to this brand all together after my new one is gone!

          Apply with fingers, smoothing it on, sometimes use an oval shaped foundation brush to apply for more sheer coverage. Coverage is buildable. Conceals blemishes well when needed. Looks great when I apply my Benefit Watts Up highlight stick on my cheekbones after the foundation.

          Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

          This foundation is nice. It's light and has some good coverage but the color is way to dark. I have alabaster which is the lightest ulta carries. It's also really annoying that they label their shades VF for very fair, they are FAR from fair. It also has a peachy under tone which is supposed to be a happy medium but it's mostly just orange. Eh, I'll probably still sheer it out and wear it but I don't love it.

                        Hello! Clinique Superbalanced Makeup and Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup SPF 15 will both help to subtract oil and give moisture in areas you need it most such as forehead and chin. The main difference is that Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup is a sheer coverage with a matte finish vs. Clinique Superbalanced Makeup which is a moderate coverage with a natural finish. Be sure to let us know your results!
