Favorite foundation!

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!

      Love this product! It can be a little drying if you use it frequently, but it's great for those pesky breakouts. I have combination skin so I like to combined this with the super balanced foundation and use this foundation as more of a concealer.

            Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

            I had been trying to save money and use a cheaper grocery brand foundation, but I couldn't find one to match or look the way I wanted. I went into Ulta after finding this foundation online at Clinique. I wanted to get matched to my skin tone. It felt awesome, looked great, but still showed my skin. I didn't feel like I put a makeup "mask" on. Instead, it covered my red breakout spots but still allowed my complexion to show through. I've been using it for a week and haven't has any additional breakouts and it feels great on the skin. I apply it in the morning and take it off after dinner. It last all day and doesn't look oily at the end.

              Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

              I really love this foundation! It doesn't irritate my skin and actually helps my breakouts. I never thought I'd find a liquid foundation that didn't make me breakout but so far, i believe this is the one! It's got medium coverage but it's buildable for sure and I love that. I have mostly dry skin but I still break out a lot. This makeup doesn't make my dryness or breakouts worse. I love it! I will be buying this again and would definitely recommend it to anyone with acne prone skin.

                I have some hormonal acne and hyper pigmentation. This keeps things at bay and gives me the level of coverage I'm looking for--not too cakey, but natural-looking coverage. Stays on all day, and I get compliments on my skin when I wear it.
