    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

    I have been using this product for the past two years now and I have to say, this is an amazing and long-lasting foundation. I was so tired of using cheap foundations that did not do the job for me, and there was no coverage. I finally wanted to upgrade to something that was worth the money I put into it. One of the make-up artists recommended this product to me after I told her about my oily skin and the occasional acne. Now, I will never go back. After applying moisturizer, I typically use this foundation for spotting on my face, rather than spreading it all over. Then I finish with a light powder. It stays on all day, gives full coverage and it's incredibly lightweight - which I love.

          Wonderful product. Have been using this for 2+ years and will never buy a different makeup! Excellent coverage that lasts for LONG periods of time even after swearing at work as a nurse. Covers scars well and prevents new break outs. I'm constantly complimented on my facial skin since using this product!! HIGHLY recommended.

            I have combination skin, and at least one small breakout every two weeks. My foundation was making my skin breakout even worse so I knew it was time for a change. I decided to try this foundation because it has salicylic acid in it which helps with acne. The first time I tried this, I was amazed! It covered up my redness and bumps in ONE application! It literally was like painting on perfect skin. I absolutely love this foundation and it stays matte SO long!! Found my holy grail!

            It's a perfect match to my skin, which is fair with a neutral/pink undertone. I am acne prone and it really helps my skin clear up too. It stays well all day and doesn't look cakey. Minimal transfer and very skin like, and comfortable.
