    Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I'm pretty pale but even the 2nd lightest shade made me look like Mulan with her white paint. It didn't stay on at all, to the point that my glasses rubbed all of it off my nose and it was covering the nose piece! And after only 1 day I had 3 zits pop up over night. The only reason I bought it was for the free gift and I didn't even get that with my shipment. $30 for horrible foundation, I'm much happier with Covergirl or Lancolm than this.

          The only thing I don't love is that it doesn't dispense easily. I may be spoiled with all the brands that have a pump or dropper cap. I am also clumsy so I had to remove a star from the rating since I keep almost spilling foundation on my vanity.

                    Made my skin dry and cracked. I started breaking out in places I never see irritation. I was told by an ulta professional that it is good for dry skin; however I wouldn't use it unless you have very oily skin type.

                        A:

                        Hi! This is a nice foundation option. I would start by exfoliating a bit more. If you are noticing flakiness, it is likely that your skin is in need of this on a daily basis, which is normal. You have several options. I am noting several below for you to explore.
                        Clinique Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer
                        Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3
                        Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum

                        I believe once your skin is prepped, you will enjoy trying a new foundation. We also offer free color matching and sampling in all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product. We would love to work with you to find the perfect match!
                        Thank you for your question and have a great week!

We also offer free color matching and sampling each day in all Ulta doors that carry a FULL line of Clinique product and would love to work with you in person if this is an option. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!

                      would this be a good choice for over 60 skin? If not, can you recommend a foundation from
