Makes my skin look incredible

    Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    This product looks and feels incredible on my skin. Cream concealer, blush and contour blend like a dream on this foundation too! Only "complaint" is that the bottle doesn't have a pump. Love that it has SPF

    Amazing Foundation

    By Rayvan

    from Fort Worth TX

    Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    Great coverage and light weight. I tried this foundation because I love Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation. My two complaints is that there's no pump and my shade number is different in this line vs. the beyond perfecting line (more to remember) but my skin looks so good lol! like healthy perfect skin. not matte not dewy. this is definitely a good go to staple foundation.

      Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

      I have sensitive acne prone combo skin (yikes!) This stuffs amazing.It's so silky and smooth and feels like youre not wearing any foundation and I've received compliments! Which I something that never happens with my skin. My only problem is that there are hardly any shades. I'm a light warm skintone and wear color 04 (they advertise as mod-fair cool neutral). Colors 05 and on was too dark for me. I wish the fair colors had warmer options as well since they're all in the cool family. It's not too pink or anything tho so i still wear it!

          Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          I use this foundation on a daily basis; one bottle lasts me about four months. When I first started using the foundation, I was putting too much on my brush. I think now a bottle would last me closer to five months. I was looking for something that provides great coverage. It does that fabulously! It even covers the dark circles under my eyes. I have really pale skin which can make the dark circles really stand out--this provides full coverage. The foundation goes on really smoothly--just know that a little goes a LONG way! I have people ask me all the time what products I use on my skin, and I always point them to Clinique!

            I bought this product about a week ago. Although I was a little iffy on the price I went ahead and purchased it after I had a consult with one of the makeup technicians in store. Blends amazingly, covers what's needed. I'd definitely recommend

            Comments about Clinique Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I like this foundation a lot. It took a few tries to get the shade right. It provides good coverage all day. Only complaint is that it oxidizes a bit even with a primer. Finish is very matte.

                      A:

                      Hi! Clinique uses the term "non-acnegenic." If a product is non-acnegenic, it has undergone clinical testing by a board-certified dermatologist and was determined not to increase the number of or worsen acne lesions. The Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is non-acnegenic.
