Most Helpful Positive Review the BEST for aging skin
I am about to be 50 and have been a makeup addict my entire life. I have I think every foundation sold but they just dont look good for various reasons. I also have a lot of redness and veins showing in eye corners and top eyelids. When I am just running around town I really have gotten away from wearing make up. Even when I go somewhere I just don't have the energy to put on a full face of make up anymore. None of it looks as good as it used to look and People have been telling me that I look younger without all the makeup. So I typically wear just foundation with a little bronze and highlight now. The problem has been that all of my foundations look made up and you can't really wear them alone or it's completely fake looking.
I have tried everything and there are only 2 foundations that work for me a 100% and weirdly both of them are really inexpensive.
The one made by countries is wonderful and it covers well but you can't really tell it's there and this 1 is even better. It's free for becoming a diamond member from ulta and as soon as I put it on I knew this was the one.
I literally can give away all my high end foundations and just use this every day. it feels good and truly can feel repairing claim. The very best part of this foundation is that I normally need a full coverage foundation but this covers it ALL perfectly Nd looks like no makeup! this is a dream come true covering all veins and flaws and makes me look a decade younger! I have never made a claim like this about any piece of make up. Every time I get a chance I'm going to buy backups just in case they ever discontinue this perfect foundation for aging skin. It makes your face literally flawless more than any foundation I tried in my life ...
Most Helpful Critical Review Good coverage- doesn't dry down. Returned it.
Sigh- went in for a full coverage foundation to replace my Estee Lauder Double Wear, great except it can make lines around mouth look like I'm 20 years older. Sales woman suggested this new Clinique. First mistake was she didn't know how much it was, so how much experience could she have really had with it? The shade match was great- Alabaster. And the coverage was medium which and looked fresh on my skin. But it was greasy to touch and came off on my fingertips. I asked her about that, she got another associate, who told me it will dry in 4 to 5 minutes. I filled my basket, 30 minutes had passed - went to check out, got in car , and put my cellphone to my ear. You know what happened. I walked back in and returned it. Sales associate fail.

Got this as a gift but love it and will buy again. There's no caked feeling even if you layer it to get more coverage. Doesn't flake or dry out on dry skin areas.

Goes on evenly and does not start to shine in any weather
Holy grail for dry super pale skin
Samus from Portland, OR
Love this foundation, it's literally the only one I use. It does not cling to dry flakes, hydrates my skin, fully covers imperfections, and has no fragrance. I am allergic to everything, but Clinique never causes flare up. Please never discontinue. And thank for finally making very fair foundations without a hint of orange.
I wanted to love this foundation
Bo from Long Island, NY
I really wanted to love this foundation. The Clinique specialist matched my color perfectly, but I explained to her that I have very oily skin and that I break out easily. I asked her to help pick a foundation within the Clinique brand that she thought would help my skin. After a few hours, it starts to settle and separate around the nose and forehead and just doesnt wear well. I stopped wearing it often because the following day, I always woke up with tons of tiny little whiteheads on my chin and cheeks. Sometimes I will mix this with my full coverage Marc Jacobs to add a little moisture to it but honestly, I am still on the hunt for one foundation that will do everything.
Really wanted to like it...
Mags from Florida
I love Clinique skin products and finally decided to try the foundation. To be honest it just felt too thick and sticky for me to have on my face all day and I didn't use a lot of it. Not saying it's a bad product, but just don't think it worked for my skin type.
Would buy again

Love how this foundation brightens my face and lasts all day.
Perfect Camouflage Coverage
Urban Sherpa from Bend OR
As part of getting to Diamond Status, I received a coupon for a free Clinique Foundation (other items too, but I chose the foundation - I felt it was a better value to try out). When I went to my Ulta, the very helpful CS lady helped me choose a shade since Covid regulations doomed shade testers. Honestly? It's perfect. She chose a shade that toned down my redness and it covers/camouflages beautifully. It's full coverage without heaviness and transfer. I also feel like it's an added benefit for my aging dry skin.
Ree from RI
So. Insanely. Happy. I have found my HG foundation, FINALLY! Amazing coverage, but doesn't feel heavy, or look cakey. Stays. Put. Doesn't just wipe off my face like so many others, despite using primers, powders, and sprays. I still use them, but this actually locks on to my skin. Through all day wear, naps, food, masks, everything. I'm so happy they expanded their shades so one actually fits me now too. It also doesn't break down and separate due to my oils and I don't get shiny and greasy looking. I love this foundation so much. For the love of God Clinique don't do what you always do and discontinue something so perfect. I will hate you forever if you do.
Lucy from Illinois
Was full coverage
The only foundation I'll use
KateCall from CT
I love this. I'm 30 and I've been looking for my everyday foundation and this is it. It's moisturizing but does not make me shiny. Belinda well. Does not accentuate wrinkles.
And they have so many shades I have different options for summer and winter.
not so much
bdawn from oklahoma
I really wanted to love this foundation. Unfortunately the first color I bought was too orange and so was the second one. they weren't orange when I put it on, but as the day went by it turned orange.
My new staple
SunshineRN from Pittsburgh, PA
This is hands down the best make up I've used. It's hydrating, lightweight, blends easily, and provides excellent coverage. It lasts all day and keeps my skin looking flawless and healthy. I wish that I could have swatched it before buying, as the color seems a tad bit too light, but it still works. There are so many shades to choose from that I'm sure I'll be able to find a better match next time I purchase this.
I would buy this again.
KB from Jasper, GA
I use this as daily foundation.
I love this foundation.
Kayla from Pennsylvania
I've tried many foundations, but always return to this one. A little bit goes a long way and there are a TON of shades to choose from. I can go darker in the summer when I'm tan and lighter in the winter. I have very sensitive, oil skin and this does not cause any breakouts on my face like many other foundations. I use it with the dramatically different gel and my skin looks better than it ever did.
Wouldn't buy again
Lo from Connecticut
I have a true neutral undertone and this line of Clinique does not seem to have that (close, but not right.) it also does not settle nicely and does not last long. Does have medium coverage.
Monjay from WI
I have tried many foundations. Clinique works very well for me and older skin
I will not buy this again.
Kris from Los Angeles
This does not stay on face very well. I wore it outside on a hot day. Came off on my glasses and smudges if you touch your face.
New favorite product
Jess from Napa
I really like how smoothly this foundation glides on. I haven't been wearing foundation for a year just tinted moisturizers but decided to go back to them if its not too heavy. Only problem about choosing a foundation is there are sooo many skin colors to choose from and testing them out during covid is not available. I asked for help from three woman that worked there and they all seemed scared in helping find a match. So it took me a couple returns until I finally found one. The ladies at Ulta are not knowledgeable about the products they sell there. Always a disappointment when I leave, but I don't have a choice not many options around here.
Abby p from Leander to
Great coverage and color definitely my go to shade now.
Broke me out
Cindy from Cedar Rapids, IA
The coverage was nice, and I liked it ok when i first put in on. It dried down cakey and broke me out pretty badly:( i stopped using it and my skin cleared up. Maybe great for an older person? I'm 30, and have fantastic skin- no wrinkles or large pores- so I thought i could use something light and hydrating. I was wrong. This didn't hydrate and didn't sit well on my skin.
Jan from Cleveland Ohio
The true test of a foundation is not how it looks when applied but how it looks hours later. I love this makeup. Looks like me only better, lasts all day and stays true just like you put it on earlier. Doesn't change -looks amazing at midnight! Please don't ever stop making this. I have even gotten compliments from my husband of 46 years and my daughter in law! Beautiful finish. Thank you Clinique!
To good to be true.
Coco P from Utica NY
I bought this cause of all the good thing it's supposed to do, for aging skin. But within minutes my makeup was flaking making me look old, dry, and exposed my pores more than normal.

Best current foundation
The best foundation from Paducah
I've used almost every foundation at Ulta and this is one of my favorites. I love the coverage and look of it. I also love that it's full of beneficial skincare ingredients to help your skin the more you wear it
Only foundation I will use now
KM from United States
This is the only foundation I have found that doesn't clog my pores. It has great coverage. I have two colors that fit perfectly for summer and winter. I will continue to repurchase again and again.
