      I love this foundation! I have very fair sensitive skin and I'm 35. This has good coverage without feeling heavy and doesn't break me out or irritate.

      Needs to be more hyped

      By Mandy

      from Missouri

      Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

      Ok this is hands down the best foundation I have ever used. I've tried everything from high end to drug store foundations. This has the perfect amount of coverage and is great for my combination skin. It doesn't stick to my dry patches and doesn't my the oily areas look like an oil slick. The only problem is that it is hard to color match.

        This is a wonderful foundation, I have very fair,sensitive skin which easily gets acne. This foundation has not irritated or caused any acne which is a massive deal for me as I have gone through so many foundations and had to toss them due to causing acne. I have very fair skin and the color breeze works so wonderfully for me.When I wear this foundation I get compliments on how beautiful and expensive my foundation looks. This foundation is no my holy grail foundation!!

        Doesn't apply well apply with a beauty blender so use a foundation brush instead and buff out any streaks. The color I picked was off so that didn't help.

                  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!

                  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.

                • 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!

                    A:

                    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!
