        I got the 2nd to lightest shade when i should have bought the lightest. It turns orange on me, but i have a white foundation mixer to save the day! It lasts all day but sometimes it can emphasize my pores.

            Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            This is a sheer coverage foundation. If you want a full coverage foundation, then I'd recommend Clinique's Beyond Perfecting foundation. I love this foundation when I think my complexion looks good (like after a facial or after a good night's sleep), as it shows off my "naked skin" more. All it does is even out the pigmentation in my face. I'll even use it for under eye concealer. I have 3 Clinique foundations, and this one and my chubby foundation stick are my favorite.

                      I wanted to try a Clinique foundation because I like a lot of their other products and it's less expensive than the brand I currently use. An Ulta employee suggested this one for combination skin. When I went to use it, it clung to my dry skin spots. If you experience dry skin then I would not recommend this product.

                        I have superbalanced and stay matte in 05 Vanilla and are a perfect color match to my skin tone. I have own shade 11 in superbalanced silk but it looks too light and unnatural. I tried 14 and it was too dark. What shade would you suggest for me try? I'd love to find the right tone in the superbalanced silk.

                        I currently use Superbalanced Cream Chamois. After being diagnosed with a basal cell on my nose, I realized that I need more protection. I see that the silk has SPF protection. Does the regular superbalanced makeup not have SPF protection? Also, what color in the silk would take the place of Cream Chamois? Thank you.

                          A:

                          Hi! You are very wise to wear an SPF daily! Great question! SPF in foundation is meant to be added protection for your skin. Based on what our doctors recommend, we suggest using a separate SPF under your foundation and allow your foundation to work as additional protection. We suggest something like Clinique's Smart Daytime Moisturizer, or Clinique's City Block SPF.
                          Superbalanced Silk SPF 15 is a very nice formula and feels great on skin. Silk Cream Chamois falls in a similar shade range and offers the same undertone for skin. This is what I suggest based on what you are currently using.
                          Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                          Hi. Thank you for your interest in Clinique. This foundation should not cause you to breakout. It is oil free and tested to be non acne genic on skin. It was tested with people that also suffer from acne and was proven to not clog pores.
                          I suggest trying products like acne solutions clinical clearing gel or Cliniques Clarifying Lotion to remove dead skin that can cause breakouts.
                          Silk Porcelain and Silk Shell are the lightest shades with a Neutral undertone in this formula. We offer free color matching and sampling each day in all doors that carry a FULL line of Clinique product and look forward to working with you soon. Have a great day!
