      Superbalanced Makeup is one of my favorite foundations! It is light, goes on easily and blends well, giving a natural finish. It provides the perfect amount of coverage and feels like you don't have anything on.

        I haven't used any form of foundation since high school/college because I could never find the right color or fit for my skin. This is absolutely PERFECT! I have oily skin and this doesn't cause any excess oil or cake up.

        from Tn

        Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

        okay so it does not suck, but it is in no way worth the price. It is basically the same quality as the E.L.F foundation or the Wetnwild foundation. This is no way compairable to a high end foundation. I would buy it again but I would never pay morw than $5 for it.

                • Q:

                  My concern is in the manufacturing, I've been purchasing this in the same place Ulta. But each bottle is labeled either Belgum or Canada a few USA. I thought Clinique was manufactured in the USA? I even asked the Clinique Rep, she said she didn't know why each bottle had a different Country .

                    Hello! Clinique Superbalanced Makeup and Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup SPF 15 will both help to subtract oil and give moisture in areas you need it most such as forehead and chin. The main difference is that Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup is a sheer coverage with a matte finish vs. Clinique Superbalanced Makeup which is a moderate coverage with a natural finish. Be sure to let us know your results!
