Most Helpful Positive Review Glad I tried this!!
Last year I took a makeup class and began doing lots of tutorials and research. I wanted a more advanced mature look and I wanted better quality makeup to properly care for my skin.
Foundation was the first place I started.
I went to almost every makeup kiosk in the dept stores and got lots of foundation samples to try. Amongst them were Estée Lauder, Chanel, Origins, Laura Mercier, and of course Clinique.
I tried every single one at least a few times, but in the end I kept coming back to this one. It's lightweight, evens my skin tone greatly, is so smooth, and didn't bother my skin at all. I'm sorry but there was no contest. The others just did not stand up against this one. Mind you I was completely unbiased. I just wanted fresh looking even skin with a lightweight feel, and this was the only foundation to deliver that for me.
I was completely ready to pay the very high prices of the other brands too, but no need, at around $25, I've had this fantastic foundation for nearly a year and am only now beginning to run out.
Props to Clinique for this one!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not even better
I ended up having to purchase the even better foundation after trying to order the pore refining solution foundation I had been using for quite some time and absolutely loved. I found out it was discontinued. I was told the even better foundation should be about the same but it was not . I haven't had a break out using the pore refining solution foundation but as soon as I started using the even better foundation I had terrible breakouts and my face always looked greasy and oily. I started using Clinique to help with breakouts and it definitely helped until using the even better foundation. I hope Clinique will go back to the pore refining solution foundation or come out with a product like it.

I really like this foundation. I don't think I realized how much until I tried a different foundation. I immediately regretted it and went back to Clinique.
Even tone and silky feel
Shayla from Idaho
I have been using Clinique off and on forever. This foundation has an even tone and feels like silk.
I would buy it again

Love the product
Do not like the price.
Should have an occasional sale
Barbara from New Jersey
This is the first time in a long time I've gone through a foundation and just repurchased. It feels clean going on, not heavy or greasy. Stays on well. Looks like my skin but evenly toned.
Love this product!
Meg from CO
The foundation is light and doesn't feel cakey but does a great job covering all dark spots, unevenness, and blemishes. They have so many colors to choose from as well, so I was easily able to find one that fit my skin. I will never buy another brand of foundation.
C from Vestal, New York
It does not provide a good coverage. It does not go over skin smoothly. I like Laser Focus so much better.
I needed a coverup since I was visiting family I see rarely.

Works great for oily skin
Ysenia from ARIZONA
So I have tried a lot of foundations and normally stick with none because I run into the same issues: foundation settles between lines, I get a migraine from the foundation scent, it leaves my skin looking shiny when I prefer matte, no SPF coverage, heavy feeling. I gravitated towards clinques formula since it was hypo allergenic and I hate foundation scents. I'm so glad I did. This is a lightweight formula which is easy to blend, doesnt settle into lines and has SPF without a shine! It has a natural finish and doesnt cake. I use a buffer brush to blend and it settles so nicely into my skin without settling just into pores. I can get 5 hours out of the look with a transparent powder before I use oil blotching strips and then the foundation looks like new again. Glad I found this! It's a holy grail for oily skin with large pores and texture.
I would buy this product again and again.

I use it everyday and love the way it protects my face and the way it goes on.
Lai from Silverdale wa
You use this as a face make up . Fairly East application
JS from FL
I like the fact that it's easy to apply but not the fact that it's not a full coverage foundation.
Produced a rash
Liz from Chico
I LOVED the way this laid on my skin and matched my skin tone perfectly but unfortunately after wearing it for a few hours I broke out in the worst rash. I keep searching for a similar product that will blend as well as this but haven't found it yet.
Love this Product!

When I want to wear makeup but not a heavy coverup
Namira from VA
Do yourself a favor and buy this foundation! It does not cling to dry spots and has medium coverage as it says. The shade collection is great and I found my perfect shade which I struggle with a lot in other foundations. The consistency is great it's not too thin not too thick and it's easily blendable. My only complaint is that I don't like the bottle because it's hard to squeeze it out. I find it so much better than the Smashbox foundation.
I really like it
Chocolate beauty from Cleveland, Ohio
I had the matte Clinique foundation but I like this more. It looks like skin and I really like it
Sue from Illinois
I purchased this product after looking at the colors online since we can't sample shades at this time due to Covid. The color is the best match I've ever had with a foundation. The product goes on so smooth and easily, blends well and gives the right amount of glow. Just what I've been looking for. Great foundation and excellent value. Wish I had given Clinique foundation a try years ago!

All day coverage that withstands an outdoor summer wedding. No streaks or sweating off. Perfect for sensitive skin, everything else seems to cause irration amd breakouts.
I buy this all the time

Keeps my skin clear
Superwoman from Jacksonville, FL
I use this product daily and it's amazing. My skin is oily and it never clogs my pores. It feels nice on my skin and isn't cakey.
One of my most favorite foundations!
Jessi from Louisiana
I never have to use very much for great coverage! Shade range is great, I have never been able to really match my skin tone but this one fits perfectly!
