FREE Treat! Packette sample Sun-Kissed Face Gelee in 01 Universal Glow w/any Clinique online purchase

A foundation-and-concealer in one for a natural, beyond perfected look that lasts all day. Lightweight, moisturizing makeup covers thoroughly without clogging pores. Skin breathes comfortably, colour stays true, even through sweat and humidity.

Due to the rich pigment level that enhances this flawless coverage makeup, shades may appear deeper when first applied. Once blended completely and allowed to dry, Beyond Perfecting Makeup will melt into your skin for a Beyond Perfected flawless look. A little goes a long way!

Using the large backside of the wand, sweep foundation across your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Then use the angled tip of the applicator - that has a slight dip in it to hold more product - to cover down the bridge of the nose and across the jawline. Blend well with fingers. Finish by using the pointy tip to spot conceal any trouble areas - under the eyes, around the outside of the nose, on top of blemishes. Pat and blend well with fingers.

Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

When I first started using this foundation I liked it. But within a couple of hours it started looking really cakey and heavy. Plus, I have very fair skin and that lightest shade they had was to dark for me. Would not recommend.

    Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

    I have very dark circles under my eyes and this has given me the fullest coverage of any foundation I've used thus far. I prefer this over any other brand. I would recommend going in person to the Clinique counter to see the colors in person though, as the colors aren't listen in order from lightest to darkest on the website.

      I use this foundation everyday. I really like the coverage on it plus it's a concealer. I also like the fact that the top of the container is stick like that of some concealers but a little bigger. You take product out and just dab it on face. The only thing I don't like is the smell of it.

          This product is fantastic for just covering acne flare ups and dark spots or as a full-on foundation. I find that using a Beauty blender for application allows for the most natural looking, dewy skin complexion.

          By Kate

          from VB

          Comments about Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer:

          My problematic skin is VERY oily and I have huge pores. I also have a touch of rosacea which I have a really hard time concealing. This is the BEST foundation I've ever used for the reason that it hides and covers those issues while being surprisingly lightweight. I do still use porefessional primer but that's it. It mattifies so even though my face still gets greasy through the day, it doesn't really look that way. The only reason I gave it 4/5 is that it was a little tough to match and I have to use bronzer to make it look more natural, which I've never had to do before. Overall, highly recommend.

                This foundation is for all skin types. There is a Capillary Shell Technology that has the ability to absorb excess oil as well as adding hydration, depending on what your skin needs.

            • Q:

              I see this product blended into the skin with either a brush or fingers; can a damp blending sponge achieve similar results?

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Yes, you can use either to apply, but with the coverage that this product offers, a damp sponge will make the foundation a little more sheer on the skin.

                A:

                The shade range is amazing in this formula, so it would be difficult to suggest a perfect shade only knowing your undertone. The best way to find the perfect shade for your skin tone is to visit the ULTA store nearest you that carries a full line of CLINIQUE product. We offer customized foundation matching each day, and even offer complimentary sampling if you wish to try it yourself at home. If you need help finding a store nearby, please just let me know, as I am happy to help! Thank you for your interest in CLINIQUE!
