          Can be little coverage or full depending on how much you use. Matte finish, made for combination skins wether dry or oily. Provides moisture for dry areas and oil control in oily areas. SPF 15 and feels like nothing on your skin.

              Was recommended this at the store and was put on by the beauty rep. I don't really like Clinique products but decided to give it a go as it looked good in the store. I wore it to a long day at work (I work in an office) and midday my face looked pinkish! This oxidized after 5-6 hours and my face looked dry and crusty. I ended up washing it off of my face as it looked horrible.

                I wasn't sure about this product when buying it. I went into Ulta looking for a lightweight foundation with that summer glow finish. I was shown a few products and this one just blended so well and looked so natural. It sort of color corrects as well and you only use a little bit of it to get the job done!

                  Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                  This is the perfect everyday foundation for me. It's not full coverage but I actually love how lightweight it is, not heavy feeling at all. This foundation applies easily with a sponge and the color lasts almost all day, though it can get a little shiny throughout. But a simple, occasional touch up with powder fixes this completely. It is literally everything else I was hoping for.

                    This foundation isn't the worst, but it definitely isn't the best. I was recommended this by a worker at the clinique counter. She said that this would be best for my combination skin type. When a light layer is applied it looks really natural, but is you add just a little too much it can start to look heavy or even powdery. I tried really hard to like this, but no matter what I do it never turns out the way I want. This foundation also doesn't last a long time. For maybe 4-5 hrs it's okay, but as soon as I produce any oil the foundation feels greasy and will slide off if you touch it at all.

                    • Q:

                      Ive been using the Clinique CC Cream in a compact for the last few years. Its been discontinued and I don't like the one in the tube.
                      would this be a good choice for over 60 skin? If not, can you recommend a foundation from
                      clinique. I like medium coverage.

                        Hi! Anytime you are wearing an SPF, there is a risk that you could possibly have a bit of flash back. The lighting also makes a difference, so it may vary in different situations. Thank you for your question!
