      This is a very light coverage makeup. It will come off if you touch or rub your face. I have oily skin and was told this isn't matte but a natural finish. After my face get oily the foundation breaks down. I even set it with powder.

        I just went back to this foundation after several years of trying diffident brands and never being satisfied. I don't now why I ever stopped using it. I like the lightweight feel of it, it evens out my skin tone and it's not as pricey as other brands.

              I love the coverage while being light as well. But a huge plus is "No PABA" since I'm allergic to it. A good foundation that is PABA free is a bit hard to find.

                        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!

                      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.

                        A:

                        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!

                      I am using the vanilla. I like the golden under tones and dont want to look pink. But, is there a similar color a little lighter than vanilla but not real pale either? vanilla is just slightly too dark.
