              Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

              Really good foundation, looks natural and not cakey. I have really dry skin, and this doesn't cling to my dry patches. It lasts through the day, and doesn't let my dry skin show through by the end of the day. I don't powder with this, because I have such dry skin, and I typically use a moisturizer, sunscreen, and primer to make it last longer. Its easy to blend and apply to skin. Its a light-medium coverage, but I feel like sometimes it doesn't cover all the red on my face. Its buildable, so if you need to apply more to red areas, like your chin or nose, it will allow you to do so. I have the Becca Aqualumious foundation, and this foundation is just as nice and a much less expensive alternative, especially if you prefer a natural look.

                      Superbalanced Makeup is a great skin equalizer! It provides moisture where you need it and subtracts oil where you don't.
                      If you have oily skin, you may want to try CLINIQUE'S Stay Matte Oil Free Makeup. It was tested for streaking and fading at 88 degrees F with a constant 80 % humidity. It stayed fresh all day. It is very long wearing!

                      A:

                      Hi. All of Clinique's foundations are allergy tested and a wonderful choice for sensitive skin. There are several nice options for you at Clinique. Superbalanced Makeup adds moisture where your skin needs it and subtracts oil where you don't. It offers moderate coverage.
                      Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup is a lightweight foundation that conceals and controls breakout and helps to prevent future blemishes.
                      Redness Solutions Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 instantly reduces redness and helps to protect skin. It neutralizes and camouflages with a yellow/green tint and calms the skin.
                      You mentioned several skin concerns, and the above foundation options are just a few that are available. We offer complimentary color matching and formula selection at any Ulta that has a full line of Clinique if you would like to try a few of your options on your skin. We also offer customized sampling of you prefer to try it at home.

                      This foundation provides adjustable coverage, so you can certainly layer coverage as needed until you've achieved full coverage. It is formulated for all skin types. For best results on dry skin, moisturize prior to application.
