Most Helpful Positive Review Superwonderful Makeup
I've found Superbalanced Makeup to be a truly
wonderful product. The coverage is light, yet effective. It never collects in my skin creases, and keeps me looking fresh and lovely all day long. As a 53 year old professional, I don't have time to wonder if my makeup needs to be touched up before an afternoon meeting. I apply
Superbalanced Makeup in the morning and have confidence all day long that I look my best.
Most Helpful Critical Review Something change with the formula of this product?
I have been using Superbalanced Makeup from Clinique since I have been in my 30's and loved it. For some reason now, the formula seems to be thicker and looks "mask- like". I asked the Clinique specialist at the store if she knew of it changing and she was not aware. When at Ulta the other day, another woman told me she experienced the same with her new bottle and has moved to another brand of foundation. I did notice that my old bottle said "Made in the US" and now the new ones say "Made in Canada".
I am sad that I can no longer use Superbalanced and now have to change brands. Clinique- if you did change an ingredient or formula, please bring back the old version.
Sad to go!

I love this makeup! It goes on light weight, but has excellent coverage. I highly recommend!

Clinique if you're reading this PLEASE give us a pump for this foundation! It's impossible to get the product out and overall very messy. Outside of that, the product itself is incredible
Perfect for my hypersensitive skin!
Mama Mayo from Milwaukie Oregon
This is the only foundation that works for me. My crazy sensitive skin reacts to almost all SPF products, but thankfully this one is SPF free. It goes on smoothly, and covers my uneven skin tone. it even helps hide the pores on my nose. Love this stuff!
Flawless finish, bad packaging
Kmn68 from Georgetown, tx
Back in the day, there was "balanced" makeup base, which I wore in the 80s and early 90s. I really like this super version. It goes on very smoothly and makes my skin look even in tone. No shininess or dry patches. It is almost perfect. I just wish it had a pump or that Clinique would give you definite instructions for getting the foundation out of the bottle.
I Like it
MeSue28 from New York
This foundation goes on smooth and gives good medium coverage, helping to even out my uneven skin tone. I still need cover-up for the worst spots, but that's true of most foundations. I've had a hard time finding the right shade for years, and the consultant helped pick the right shade for my combination skin. My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to last all day until bedtime, so the consultant also recommended a perfect shade of powder to give it staying power.
Not Heavy & Give A Natural Look
God's Songstress from LA
I've been wearing super balanced liquid foundation for several years now and I love it. I like the natural look it offers and long lasting effect. I have sensitive skin, so it works perfectly for me. A little for me goes a long way. I only use a lightweight moisturizer before applying it, then I'm good to go!
cas from AZ
I love this foundation, but like another reviewer, Suzie, I agree the smaller bottle is not as good as the larger one.
I am going to return it
Nata from Austin
I have a combination skin and this foundation leaves me very shiny
It should be rated at 100%!
Cheffie74 from Cincinnati
My skin has been through alot, especially during my 6 month deployment in Pakistan, the sun has taken it's toll, so it's been hit or miss when it comes to finding a light, natural foundation, and it's been more misses lately, until now! I love this! It doesn't feel heavy, smoothes out lines, covers naturally, and gives a soft glow. I don't even use primer anymore. I use a soft brush to apply and blend and I'm good to go. I'm sold.
Love the product but NOT the bottle
Susie from Kansas
Used this makeup for several years. Clinique has changed the bottle. The opening is so small that the makeup won't pour out because of the small opening.
Many people dislike but I LOVE
JC from Texas
Wonderful for light coverage with build able staging results! Fav summer makeup for Texas. I dare to say I rotate it with my double wear by Estée Lauder!
An old favorite!
Sally the Secretary from Walnut, CA
I have used this makeup for the past 30+ years. Always wanted to look my best at the office but not overly done.
Clinique Superbalanced was just what I was looking for and stayed with for all these years! Thank you Clinique!

It suits my skin
I stick to the best!
Nicole from AZ
You can use this for a light cover up or build up for full coverage I live in Arizona so summers are disgustingly hot! This doesn't cause me to break out at all & doesn't melt off as soon as I step outside!!
Lindsey from South Dakota
This is my go-to everyday foundation. Does what it advertises- adds moisture, but subtracts oil. I wear a mask everyday for my job and this is one of the only foundations that does not cause breakouts. It is a light coverage on my skin, but covers up blemishes. It does, however, tend to wear off by the end of the day.
I would buy this product again

My key to flawless make up
Salome from Delaware
I bought this foundation but I was not sure in my decision. However from even the first use of the foundation I felt that it is one of the best ones and makes my skin flawless. I would recommend the foundation to use.
Isn't for people with very oily skin.
Christina from Springfield, MO
The shade is slightly too yellow I don't understand what tone and undertone are supposed to mean exactly. I am more in the middle of yellow and pink. Ive only had it on a couple hours and already had to blot. It sunk in deeply in the pores on my nose and it makes them look bigger. It doesn't quite cover my acne scarring so I guess I need a thicker coverage. Im not sure this is for me.
Laurie from Montana
I have gone between Clinique and Este Lauder. I tend to go back to Clinique. Better coverage and they do not change their products every few years so that if you find a product that works, Clinique still makes.
Wendy from New jersey
I have dry combination skin which makes it difficult to find a good foundation that doesn't make my dry skin area looking caky. So I decided to give this one a try and it works so good! It's super lightweight, it's super easy to apply "use my fingers", blends super good, covers perfect to my needs, and matches my skin so well! I bought the CN 28 ivory (vf).
Not too heavy, good coverage
AdeleGB from San Diego, CA
I moved from MAC Cosmetics to Clinique for my foundation needs, and I have been very happy with my decision. Just a little foundation gives me perfect coverage without feeling heavy or looking cakey by the end of the day. I am very fair and found a good shade (#28 Light) that works well for me and helps me to keep a natural look that I prefer.
Theresa from Louisiana
Use as a base for doing my daughter's make-up for pageants and dance
Perfect coverage for my combination skin.
Trish from Buffalo, NY
Just the right coverage.
Charlie7491 from South Carolina
I don't normally write reviews but this product demands one - I have tried the Even Better, and the Even Better Refresh and while they are nice, they always felt oily on my combination, 65+ old skin. I am fair with neutral undertones so I wear the ivory shade in all types. The Superbalanced formula is the best I have tried in years! It is light, it helps to even my skin tone (I have a few age/sun spots), doesn't settle in the lines and feels like I'm not wearing makeup at all. Being fair, it is difficult to find something that enhances without being noticeable but I think this foundation does the job! It would be nice if it also came in a tube for travel...the glass bottle is great for home but it's bulky for a cosmetic bag....not a game changer though, I will still purchase this again.
