        Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

        I've only been using this foundation for about a week so I haven't seen any skin changes, but as for the makeup itself, I'm happy so far. My skin is oily so I like this oil-free option that doesn't feel drying and is really lightweight. My only comment is that it claims to be medium-full coverage and I would disagree with that; it definitely seems like light-medium coverage, which could be a problem if your looking for something to cover up blemishes/redness.

        Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

        I've been using drug store foundations for a long time and decided to finally look into the more expensive ones. Since I have dry spots and uneven, sensitive skin, I tried this. I feel like for some people it would be wonderful, but not for me at all. The lightest shade (Breeze, bought at a different store) is still unbearably too dark on me, and I'm not ghostly pale, but I am pretty light. Also, I need my foundation to stay put and not transfer onto other people or clothing. With just a light swipe across my face with my finger, it was covered in this foundation. Despite being too dark on me and not transfer-proof, I still think it's a decent foundation because it does look nice on the skin and doesn't settle into lines, which I know is a big plus. I definitely would consider it sheer/light to medium coverage, and not for those trying to cover acne or dark spots, but it does provide SOME coverage. It does feel like you're wearing makeup, but it's not uncomfortable like some foundations are. Overall, certainly not for some people, but must be lovely for others. Also for reference, I've been using Rimmel 25 hour foundation in light ivory for a while-it mostly meets my needs, but I still want something better.

            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.

              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 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!
