Really nice!

Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

I have Nude Beige and I'm surprised at how much I love this foundation. I never wear foundation but recently started a few months ago and I had this from an Ulta event so I thought I'd use it. This set with a little bit of powder and my setting spray lasts me through a 7hr shift and a 5 hr shift. I work two part time jobs so longevity in a product is a must for me. This checks that box perfectly. On top of that, the color match is spot on. I apply this with the Eco Tools Total Perfecting Blender and find that that helps best to get the fullest coverage and the best blend out of the foundation. I haven't experienced any transfer, oiliness, dryness, and anything like that in the few months that I've been using this and I don't use a primer so I'd say that's pretty impressive. I have oily skin in my t-zone and dry patches around my face and somehow this just helps to make everything look naturally glowy without looking greasy. Anyways, I really love this foundation and would recommend it for any other first time foundation wearers.

      Good coverage but I have to reapply after 8 hours. I'm a nurse and work 16 hour days stressful work. I have to touch up around my eyes, nose and forehead. I love this product it's very smooth and silky. Goes on and blends well.

        ASHY TEXTURE

        By MakeUpG

        from Houston, Texas

        Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:

        I'm the color cream whip and I usually add yellow food coloring to cover the deep pink tones and turn it into a neutral yellow color. Besides that when I put it on the texture was a nice dewy coat but then by the end of the day it broke down into a Cakey/ashy texture no matter how light I applied it and it really collected/sunk into my smile and eye cracks. it also comes off really easily! Do not like that it comes off easily and turns into a cakey chalk texture by the end of the day. Use the matte texture instead.

          Unfortunately even the lightest shade was too dark for my winter skin. It went on easily but I don't think it would be very long lasting.

              I've been using Clinique since high school (20ish years) and nothing compares to Clinique. I look like I'm still in my 20s. It has truly been my go to and I'll never use anything else. And I'm an esthetician! So love your skin and buy this! :)

                    According to one answer, the Cream Chamois is a gold undertone, yet the description above says it's cool, neutral. Why does this makeup have to be so complicated?

                      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!
