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!
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.

When I first put it on I was like, ok new holy grail foundation. Light, blends seamlessly, and looks great - needed minimal concealer to cover imperfections after applying this. BUT by the end of the day it's rubbed off in spots, settled into ever lone and poor and looking caked. So disappointed. Great if you only need to look good for a few hours but definitely not long wearing :)

I was able to get this as my diamond welcome gift, Never really wore a clinique liquid foundation. I decided on the golden neutral color and it's perfect on me. Love the texture. It stays very good during the day, i have more of a combo oily skin type and do use it with a primer and setting spray but still it looks very nice. I definitely will purchase, i was not expecting to like it as much as i do.

It goes on good smoothies and I love it

Product was hard to blend and came right off anytime I touched my face, even hours after application.

This is currently my favorite foundation. It applies really well and stays on the entire day. I'm very picky when it comes to my foundation. I have very dry skin and it sometimes peels in the winter. I have found this foundation to be hydrating and I love that it has SPF. I like how light the coverage is because I can still show my freckles.
steph from Georgia
It feels great on my skin. i started with a summer shade and bought two more bottles in lighter shades since I enjoyed this foundation so much. I have found a current perfect shade in C28.
Ker from Orlando
This foundation blends in so nicely!
Lbisco from New Hampshire
I really like it. I was looking for light coverage for everyday and it has SPF sun protection!
Sue from Richmond, VA
I never use anything in my face but now that I am older and have age spots, Ivy was really helpful recommending me with a product that was light and matched my facial color.
She was great!

The product I used was discontinued. An associate helped me pick this out. It's perfect!! Goes on smooth and doesn't sit in ceases. I absolutely love this product.
KaylaTheShopaholic from Milwaukee
I like a full coverage foundation, with a good application I can achieve the look I like. I got this for free, so I was excited to try Clinique since it had been quite some time. I have other "holy grails" I probably would
Not choose this over others but def a good product, with setting sprays and powder it looked nice on my skin

This foundation is a true gem. I have to worn Too Faced, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals, Kylie, endless drug store brands and more. This formula is wonderful. It is medium coverage, and corrects redness very well. They have a wide selection of colors and the first time I ordered online I was way off. It was easy to go into Ulta and exchange for my best shade which is CN 28 Ivory. I gave combination skin that gets a little oily in my T-Zone. This stuff covers what I want but isn't heavy at all.
I still love my Too Face Born This Way concealer with it and I still use my Urban Decay Naked some days but this has become one of my main staple go to's for daily wear.
If the formula stays the same I will continue to purchase and wear this foundation.

It gave me the coverage I wanted without having a heavy feel.
El Hen from Baltimore MD
Used this over First Aid Ultra Repair Hyaluronic Hydrating primer, and applies with a beauty blender sponge. Looked great! Natural, medium to full coverage. I was ordering online so I asked ulta what color I should get based on my BareMinerals original shade (fairly light) and they recommended Linen; it was spot on! The coverage did fade a little bit but I only noticed after wearing for about 7 hours. Used bare minerals hydrating mineral veil on top with Elf setting spray. I will probably buy this again!

Bisque color is the best for me. Love this product. It's the only one so far that i can find that has the perfect shade for my skin. It blends nice and covers well. It wears well throughout the day and doesn't accentuate my lines if I use no powder on top.

I chose this foundation as my free gift for reaching the Diamond level, and to be honest I wasn't expecting much but whoa, I'm super impressed! I stopped purchasing anything Clinique years ago, mainly just because there are so many makeup brands these days and Clinique fell by the wayside for me. A few months ago however I tried their serum foundation and really liked it. Not just a fluke. This Even Better foundation is, well… even better than the serum foundation. The formula is comfortable and covers my minor redness, and gives my skin a natural, slightly dewy appearance. I'm a foundation junkie but I'm also hard to please in this area, so I'm stunned that this worked out so well. Even though I earned it as my Diamond gift I'm thinking about repurchasing a lighter shade for the coming fall/winter. Excellent product.
Erikan90 from Los Angeles, CA
I liked it at the beginning when I first started using it. But I have combination skin and after a couple of hours my foundation began to crack. I did use moisturizer that was hydrating to see if it helped but it still did the same thing. The shade matches my skin really well. So I did like that. I will not be buying this again.

Perfect color tint, very nice product.

Feels light on your skin
Glammerella from Johnson City, TN
I got this as a free gift when I got Diamond again this year and I'm pleasantly surprised. It has a nice finish, it's not too heavy, & it blends nicely with a damp sponge. It doesn't have the best staying power in the heat, but I look forward to trying it this fall! My skin is combination. I've tried other Clinique foundations and they didn't work well for me, so I was skeptical that this would, but I was pleasantly surprised at how pleased I was!
Beth from Richmond Texas
I have used this foundation for some time now and it works well and delivers a wonderful finish.
