    Was treated to a Platinum Perk for this. Was given amazing help in the store and when I tried it at home with my own tools was even more pleased. This blends better than my up-to-recently HG foundation. Color match is better and wears better. Than you ULTA for introducing me to this product!

        Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

        I usually use the regular Superbalanced but decided to try this one because of the SPF factor. This goes on just as smoothly as I would expect from Clinique. It provides full coverage without being too heavy but I do find it a bit drying.

        Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

        Very full coverage and the foundation feels VERY heavy on the skin after wearing it for a few hours... Not ideal for dry skin - it will cling to your drier spots. Overall, not impressed with this foundation and could probably find something better in a drugstore aisle.

          Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          I was using a more expensive name brand foundation which I loved. But the Clinique sales consultant recommended this. It goes on smoothly and offers better coverage. Only reason I would say that it's difficult to apply is because there is no pump. I usually just dump it onto the top of my hand and dip a brush in. I splurge on foundation but this is fairly priced and will probably be my new go to.

                  Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                  This has been the best foundation I have ever owned!. I have extremely oily skin, large pores and light texture from bad acne as a teenager. I still struggle with acne (get minor pimples) and I'm in my mid 30s. Most matte foundations are too heavy and the light matte make me oilier, and by the middle of the day the oil from my skin has made the foundation "bubble up" amplifying the texture on my cheeks, making my skin look gross. I have resorted to only applying powder, but as I'm aging I'm also getting dry around my mouth and eye area. This foundation makes my skin look flawless! And the best part is it only takes a little! It controls my oil and doesn't give me that gross 'bubble" up extremely-texturized skin look. With every use I shake the bottle and apply the tiniest amount to my clean fingers and rub on my face, I finish off with powder and my makeup stays looking good all day. I have used more expensive makeup that doesn't work, the price is worth the value.

                        If your t zone has dry patches that you see on the surface, the best thing you can do for your skin before you apply foundation is to exfoliate and use an oil free hydrator. If you are taking these steps, the foundation should look great on your skin. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!
