Just not good...
Light to medium coverageThis is pretty good for combination skin, easy to blend without accentuating any dryness, and gives a natural /satin finish. Not the best to cover redness though. Does not clog up the pores which was important for me. Does not wear off quickly.
Perfect for a day out...Perfect for a day out or going outside. Feels amazing on my skin, doesn’t melt off under the sun and feels super lightweight!
Just not good...Not enough coverage to cover up imperfections and made me really oily in my T-zone, more so than other foundations
GreatI have acne prone skin and his product didn’t break me out. It is buildable an long lasting. It also have various range of colours to suit my needs. Definitely recommend it.
Great coverageGreat, buildable coverage and long lasting. Excellent colour range for variance in skin tone through out the different seasons.
GreatExcellent foundation, medium coverage and makes skin look very dewy and healthy. very natural looking and doesn't get cakey which is great!
Probably used 10 bottles in yearsI have used only this foundation for probably 10 years. It lasts for a long time. It has the coverage and make your skin look flawless. If you after both I recommend this.
No Skincare ProblemsSince switching to Clinique I haven't had any acne problems.
I like a natural look so the coverage being medium is perfect for this.
Enough shades I can switch just a little bit between summer and winter.
Love itBeen using this for 8 years, so lightweight and great coverage. Build to get coverage you want. Haven't found a better foundation yet even hides redness and spots
Nice coverageThis foundation gives me light to medium coverage, depending on whether I apply one layer or two, and it also gives me a very natural finish.
A great foundationPurchased this in the shade neutral, easy to apply leaves skin feeling super soft, the colour is very natural looking and the foundation is long lasting. Have noticed an improvement in the skin tone since using this , it seems less pigmented. Wish the packaging was a bit larger and came in a pump pack instead.
Medium coverageMedium coverage, not fantastic at hiding blemishes - so use in conjunction with concealer. Can't say I've noticed any of the skincare benefits this product claims to have unfortunately, but the foundation itself stays on for a full day without issues.
Absolute Fave Foundation!!Over the past few years I have chopped & changed alot but always come back to this one!
Awesome coverage, evens skin tone beautifully, gives your finished look a beautiful non greasy looking glow, lasts from morning to night.
Fantastic for my combo/oily/rosacea prone skin, great for blurring and improving my enlarged pores.
This beauty ticks all the boxes.....
All this PLUS....wearing this daily truly does improve your skin overrall, my skin is 100% improved since I started with this foundation.
Hightly recommend it!!!
Mine but betterThis gives me a my skin but better look every time, amazing
Good product for uneven skin tonesThis foundation is quite silky when you put it on, and it blends really well. I like a natural look with good coverage (I flush easily), and that’s probably the biggest plus for this product
Even Better - Try the BestThis foundation is so comfortable to wear and yet highly pigmented so it will give a luminous, even skin-tone. I have hyperpigmentation and acne scarring and it covers both effectively. It has a dewy finish, so I never get that dry, cakey look of other full coverage foundations, and I wear it with a sheer mineral powder to keep it all in place.
Light dewy makeupThis is good if you already have great skin but want it to look more dewy and even. Your natural skin tone still shines through. It looks lovely but it’s not long wearing. Good for dry skin, but definitely not for oily skin.
Even Better.... Try The BestThis foundation is a lovely texture and goes on really nicely. It has a light to medium coverage for me. It looks really natural and dewy. I wore this on my wedding day, after the makeup artist did a bad job of my foundation - I wiped off what she did and I put this on and it stayed looking great all night!
The bestI love this foundation! I love that is has spf for one, and it feels nice and light but also covers any blemishes I might have. I can't complain at all about the wearability of this product.
My go-to foundation for years!This foundation is so comfortable to wear and yet highly pigmented so it will give a luminous, even skin-tone. I have hyperpigmentation and acne scarring and it covers both effectively. It has a dewy finish, so I never get that dry, cakey look of other full coverage foundations, and I wear it with a sheer mineral powder to keep it all in place.
My go to foundationI've been using Clinique even better foundation for a few months now. I like the finish of the makeup and the range of shades. I find it looks even better when applied with a foundation brush and I have received many compliments on my 'flawless' skin (which believe me it is not!). I have extremely sensitive skin and I am prone to breakouts but this foundation doesn't seem to exacerbate this at all. The only real drawback is that it can be difficult to set and tends to transfer when it's humid or my skin is too moisturised. But i would recommend giving it a try.
GreatThis is a great light to medium foundation. Doesn’t look heavy on the skin super light
GreatVery good foundation, very hydrating and looks very natural. I always get so many compliments when I wear this that my skin looks amazing. The shade range is also very convenient as I am darker skin toned girl and it is difficult to find foundation for my colour.
Beautiful skinThis foundation is a light to medium foundation that blends easily and looks great on the skin. The best part is that it doesn't look like you are wearing makeup!
Looked great but did not last very longThis foundation looked great when applied and has a natural medium coverage. My only issue is that it does not last very long on my oily T-zone. I normally use double wear with loose setting powder, this foundation really struggled when my oils started coming through. Definitely got worse as the weather warmed up. More suited for drier skin types.
So good!This foundation is a lovely texture and goes on really nicely. It has a light to medium coverage for me. It looks really natural and dewy. I wore this on my wedding day, after the makeup artist did a bad job of my foundation - I wiped off what she did and I put this on and it stayed looking great all night!
Long-lasting and lightIf you're looking for a gleaming, dewy finish then this is the best. I find it works just as great when my skin is dry as when it's sensitive and more oily. It's coverage is definitely buildable and one can wear this foundation more sparsely or easily create a heavier look that is still natural. The only negative is that, like a lot of foundations, it does tend to coalesce in certain areas and can look a little patchy as the day wears on.
My new favouriteI was so pleased by this purchase, its my new fav, and ticks all the boxes for me. I was a bit nervous about buying new type of foundation online, but the colour matching tool worked and this is literally perfect for me.
There is a slight luminosity to this product which gives that dewy look. It stays the same colour all day, I haven't experienced any oxidation at all. I apply half a pea's worth, using a brush, which creates a nice bit of coverage that conceals redness while still looking natural (big priority for me) and allowing my skin to breathe. I touch up any bits with concealer if I'm going for a flawless look.
On hot days, by the afternoon, I like to put a bit of powder to absorb excess oil in my T zone but I have always had this issue so I don't think its the foundation. Just my genes!! ;)
Excellent formula awful shadesThis is perhaps the best formula foundation I’ve ever found for my skin. It’s long wearing, sits beautifully, is dewy without being shiny, fool proof in application.
BUT THE OXIDIZATION DEAR GOD THE HORROR.
I’ve had Ivory and Alabaster, I got Ivory first which turned orange but it was such a great finish that I persevered. Then I realised it was a fail anyway so I tried the lighter Alabaster. Still orange. I’ve read many reviews of Clinique foundations and the oxidisation and orangeness is a regular feature.
Shame, as it’s totally awesome.
For reference I’m 43, and NC15-20, combo dry, some enlarged pores and fine lines.
Fragrance free, glowing skinI have a "normal" T-zone with dry, sensitive cheeks, and I love how naturally radiant the finish of this foundation is. I bought the shade Linen online, for my fair complexion, and the shade is a touch too grey and a touch too dark, if it were to match me perfectly. Once my other [light] makeup is on, however, it's noticeable, and my skin just looks healthy. I think that's the best word for it - healthy-looking skin.
One application is enough to cover my red blotchy cheeks, while not obscuring every freckle or mole, looking light, which I like a lot. Although it does not settle into my fine lines, it does break up a little around my nose after a few hours, which I'd rather, than a tight-feeling long-wear foundation. My solution is to brush a drop of moisturiser over the small area, which moves the foundation back into place (or I could set it with powder, but I prefer the slightly dewy finish).
Smooth finishI like this foundation, it’s build-able for maximum coverage, or lighter coverage a small mount goes a long way. For the price it’s average, as I have found some nice foundations that cost half the price. Although when it comes to weeks when my skin is feeling dry or I have a few blemishes I like to use this one as it covers well and feels hydrating!
not full coverageI like this for every\day wear
Nice foundationThis is a nice medium to full coverage foundation. I have combination to an oily t zone (humid climate) and this does still leave me a tad shiny by the end of the day which is why I’m eating 4 stars but its a nice foundation with good coverage. Also doesn’t clog pores or break me out.
Nice!This is great for the no make up look, it's my go to foundation for "dress down" days.
Really great!This is a very natural looking product - I have been wearing mineral powder for several years, but this is so much better - my skin looks better - the color is perfect - rarely do you have this type of color selection - my skin looks great and it doesn't clog my pores - love it!
Love the finishI really like this foundation. I love that it has SPF and it's great for a daytime natural look. It blends nicely. The only downfall is the price, don't think the product is worth the hefty price tag but other than that it's great!
GreatThis is a great foundation that has sunscreen in to protect. It can be used in large or small amounts, which is great for use for day or night wear. It doesn't feel heavy and glides on nicely.
no-makeup-makeupLove this product, good coverage and a nice dewy finish. Perfect for a natural no-makeup look but i wouldn't recommend for oily skin!
Good shade match not good for oily skinThe colour Alabaster matched me absolutely perfectly, however, having oily skin this really just didn't stay on long enough for me, I've previously used Clinique foundations and find that they have medium- high coverage however I wouldn't recommend this to the oily skinned people I would say more normal to combination skin would benefit from this foundation.
good formula, not so great shade rangeThis is a great foundation it covers any spots and redness without clogging pores, it lasts for quite a while and doesn't melt off in hot weather, it isnt cakey and has a semi matte finish which is buildable and it has a your skin but better look. however if you are of a darker complexion you may struggle finding your shade
Good coverageReceived a sample of this in shade # 5 Neutral. This foundtion applies easily and provides good coverage. Doesn't accentuate fine lines or pores and is long lasting. Would recommend this, it also comes in a wide range of colour shades.
Reliable and a favouriteThis is a great foundation - it does everything it says but I don't know about its actual skin care benefits as I haven't noticed any of those.
This is why I like it
- covers any imperfections/active blemishes well
- doesn't cause pimples/or make any existing spots worse
- lasts and doesn't slide off in hot weather
- natural finish (neither matt nor dewy but gives a nice glow) and never cakey
- Doesn't highlight pores, sink into lines or show up dry skin
- suitable for all skin types
- great packaging, particularly for travel.
My only issue with this foundation (and most Clinique foundations) is that the shade selection can be difficult.
Dewy perfectionIf you're looking for a gleaming, dewy finish then this foundation is the best. I find it works just as great when my skin is dry as when it's sensitive and more oily. It's coverage is definitely buildable and one can wear this foundation more sparsely or easily create a heavier look that is still natural. The only negative is that, like a lot of foundations, it does tend to coalesce in certain areas and can look a little patchy as the day wears on.
Old FavouriteI always end up coming back to this foundation. The range of colors means I can find the perfect match. Although the bottle is small it does go a long way. My skin is combination and I do find that it can sometimes look cakey around my nose and chin, but this depends on what my skin is doing on the day. I prefer a light coverage so this is perfect for me.
Not my favourite Clinique productI have fairly clear skin but enjoy a high coverage foundation that lasts.
This looked great when first applied but didn't last long. I found it separated around my chin and nose.
It also oxidised quite a lot.
I have normal to dry skin so perhaps better suited to different skin types.
Great lightweight coverage.I've just started using Clinique products - Definitely worth the money & I'll continue to use this. Sits nicely over concealer & blends well. Stays through the day too with minimal powder needed to set. Doesn't feel heavy or look cakey. And no break outs either - Bonus!
Makes my skin smooth and soft!Great product, I would purchase again! It's lightweight, so not heavy coverage - but it texture is amazing. Lasts about 5-7 hours!
THE BEST FOUNDATION EVERThis is like a second skin! the coverage is perfect for me, and lasts well throughout the day!
Fantastic lightweight medium coverI have quite pale skin but have always struggled to find a foundation that doesn't make me look like a ghost (and I go for Ivory so that's saying something)! Even better is the perfect density - goes on quite lightweight but still offers a nice medium coverage. It's great for oily skin types too, also not something it's easy to lock down. So happy with this product, don't ever change Clinique!
Obsessed!I recently obtained a sample of this foundation & am now awaiting the delivery of my full size bottle! It doesn't go on too heavy and not much is needed at all, the sample size sachet has lasted 3 days. I actually first put this on while a little hungover from a big night beforehand and I couldn't even tell! It gave me such a nice glow and great coverage on my patchy skin, I don't think I'll be looking for a new foundation anytime soon :)
