      Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

      I consider myself a drugstore brand gal, but this was worth the investment. It makes a difference when you buy high quality foundation because this did not cake or smudge and it stayed in place ALL day. It's nice to have such a buildable foundation, too. I put a little on when I want a more natural look and can add more if I want fuller coverage. GREAT product, highly recommend.

                I like this product but I wish the lighter colors weren't all so pinky. I have light skin but a warm undertone and this foundation doesn't have a color that matches me. It makes me look pink but other than that I enjoy it.

                Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

                I have extremely oily acne prone skin. I'm 31 and want a foundation that blends and stays put through the hot Arizona summer days. While I do have to blot away oil in the afternoon, the color matches my skin tone perfectly and the coverage is a dream!
