Most Helpful Positive Review Nice find
I was looking for a new foundation and I have sensitive skin which is acne prone and being in my early 50's it's a pain. I have warm/neutral undertones to my light/medium skin. I do find Clinique to be a bit warm in their shades for light/medium warm undertones. At first I was shade matched with CN40 which was a tad too pink. Then shade matched to WN38. Both work but I like the WN38 Stone better even if it's a tad too warm. The foundation is full coverage and I find it does not settle into my lines/wrinkles as long as I don't use too much. I have dry skin and this works for me as long as my face is prepped properly with a good moisturizer. I put on my face sunscreen moisturizer and follow with Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion. If I need to during the day I spritz my face with the Moisture Surge spray. I think in the summer months this foundation will be perfect formula for my dry skin - even not in the cooler months it's fine. Hopefully I will be able to find a summer shade next summer. Bonus - this does not irritate my skin or cause me to break out. A win in my book.
Most Helpful Critical Review Save the money and buy the even better instead
I used the Even Better foundation before I tried the Even Better Clinical foundation. I thought I would try this product due to boasting about additional benefits to your skin and while I like to hide my imperfections, I would also like my skin to look better without make-up since I'm not an everyday full face of make-up kind of person. I think the problem with this formula is that they are trying to do too many things all in one product and it is throwing off the chemical balance of the product and how it actually looks on the skin. At the end of the day, I am still buying this product because it is a foundation, not a serum and I expect it to look nice. While I had no problems with the look of the Even Better foundation, the Even Better clinical I struggled to make it not look cakey from the first moment I put it on. Through out the rest of the day, it settled into my pores and fine lines and just looked more splotchy the longer I had it on. Just buy the Even better foundation and save yourself the money and headache.

I really want to like this foundation. I am a first time user of this makeup. The first shade I was color matched with was way to light. I tried to work with it and it just did not work. I went back to the store. I was get color matched again and exchanged the original for a shade 3 darker. Although the shade does work better, it still appears off. Furthermore, I do cleanse my face and moisturize before putting my make up on. I also use a pore filler and primer before applying foundation/powder, etc. This foundation is very light and settles into every line and pore it can. It is quite frustrating to work with.

sagiesis from MA
I don't know what I was expecting but the texture seems very siimilar to liquid foundation. Maybe a little thicker? creamier? But I was able to find a match to my skin tone which is rare for me.

I am very pleased with the color and coverage of this product. The product stays put throughout the day.
Wrong shade, great coverage.
Kat from Fl
I used this once and will be returning because the shade is too orange. I did not have time to redo my makeup so wore this from 4am to 10pm traveling cross country. The coverage was as good as BB. The shade is wrong. I will be returning.

I lived my sample of Even Better Clinical™ Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25. It did not bother my sensitive skin. And the coverage is fabulous. I would definitely recommend this product to others, and already have.
Great Coverage! Good for skin!
PortaPattie from Sebastian, FL
Use to blend out skin, imperfections, and redness. A little bit heavier than I would like but other than that, love it! Sun protection as well.
Cn52 great color natural look
Anna b from Los Angeles ,ca
I like this comparable to even better vanilla 07 color wise but just a bit drier price is ok too, cute stylish glass bottle shakes nicely because the other bottles are plastic and smaller they don't really shake well to mix when there isn't much left but all and all I would recommend this
Meya from Michigan
Goes on smoothly with mid to full coverage. Natural look , live it would definitely repurchase.
Rtipton91 from Dandridge, TN
The shades match perfectly and leaves your skin looking and feeling exactly like you want it! And it's but oily so there's no shine. Just pretty :)

A little goes a long way
Chelo from Modesto, CA
Very good coverage and love how it looks good on my very oily skin.
Ceacea from Woodinville, WA
It's not full coverage but it's still good I wouldn't purchase just because it reminds me more of a BB cream then a foundation
Cmaritaylor from Kingston, OK
This goes on very smooth and give you a light natural look. Doesn't settle or give you a cakey look. I have oily skin and i didn't have any issues throughout the day. I was quite pleased with this overall.

I liked Clinique BCSF SPF25. It gave smooth even coverage and I especially liked that it had the SPF for sun damage protection.
Khins4 from Lees Summit, MO
A little thicker than I like- I am a less is more person so this was not really for me. Good coverage otherwise but with wearing a mask daily for work- the foundation came off in the mask and it's hard to do full coverage with issues of Maskne on my chin. Otherwise color was spot on.
Rach from Wake Forest, NC
As soon as I smoothed this onto my face, I need a note to buy a bottle because this foundation serum is amazing! It provided full coverage on my dark spots..I didn't need anything else. The added SPF is a great bonus, to help avoid future dark spots. The ivory shade matched my skin perfectly, and I was very happy to be able to try this out.
Angee45 from Ramsey, MN
Feels light on my skin, coverage was light-med, just not a huge fan of sunscreen makeup.
Cluvet from New Jersey
I have been using Clinique products for 35 years, I am not a fan of this foundation, it is heavy and cakes, not smooth at all.
RH40 from Lubbock, TX
I have yet to find a product from Clinique that is a fail.
Freckles1078 from Bayside, NY
This weightless and oil free liquid foundation applies easily and covers imperfections well. Love that it has a matte finish, and with SPF25 too!
Full Coverage Foundation--Feels like Nothing on

I love this foundation's coverage as well as it's texture and am excited about the fact that it will improve my skin. I'm a longtime convert from another established cosmetic brand and love this new foundation!

Good everyday Foundation

The foundation is pretty good. It is not too thick and goes on with ease. Medium coverage with Broad Spectrum Spf. I like this product is good for every day.
