      I usually don't care for liquid foundations but decided to give this one a try after the make-up artist tried it on me in the store. I absolutely love it! I love the way it blends. It is very lightweight and goes on very well. It has great coverage and I love the way it makes me look.

        Dropped IT cosmetics for this & am so glad I did!! Perfect coverage & color, blends perfect, stays all day and doesn't break me out. The humidity and heat in Florida is brutal & this is one of the few foundations I've found that holds up well to it. Excellent product for much less a price than its competitors. Hope they don't change it anytime soon!

          Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          I have been searching for a foundation for my oily skin and the girl working recommended this to me (I went in wanting the Tarte foundation that's good for oily skin and lasts 12 hours). For the price this is a great product. I noticed it starting to break down around 6 hours but I am a server in a fast paced restaurant so that could be why. I have very sensitive skin so I am hoping it doesn't cause breakouts but so far so good. It goes on very nice and is easy to blend and looks really pretty. Looks natural which I like because I am not a full coverage foundation girl. It does seem to wipe off easily even with a primer and setting spray. Example: I was eating a salad and patted my face with a napkin after and it was all over the napkin. Overall I really like the way this looks when you first apply. I do have to touch up a few times during my day and it looks good after that as well. I'm on the fence on whether or not I should exchange it for the Tarte one I originally went in for. Also, Clinique sells in China, so they do test on animals which I was told they do not. This is often a deal breaker for me. While the products made in the US are cruelty free the brand as a whole is not... this is something I found out after my purchase. But if you're looking for an easy to apply, natural foundation with medium coverage at a good price point this one is pretty good. I do like how it looks and how it has spf in it. Also, I wish the bottle had a pump, minor thing but I hate battling with the bottle to get the product out.

          Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          I've been using this foundation for 2 months now, and i'm at the end of the bottle. The foundation is okay, it's buildable, has great coverage, and it didn't cause me to breakout. Although the packaging needs a pump because you waste so much product by pouring it out. It OXIDIZES BADLY, so keep that in mind if you plan to by this foundation, about four hours in to wearing this foundation with Porefessinals primer i'm already oily and lastly it transfers even when set down with powder, if I even just moved my hair and accidentally brushed my face with my fingertip I was left with a red mark. It's not something I will be repurchasing.

                  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!

                  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!

                  Hi! Yes, this offers a beautiful finish on skin and also offers medium coverage. I apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to get the CC Cream in a compact. If you would like to try this formula, and more, we offer free color matching and sampling each day in all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique products. We would love the opportunity to find something that you love just as much as you loved the CC cream compact! We look forward to speaking with you soon!
