I was a massive fan of Clinique for many years, but fell for

I was a massive fan of Clinique for many years, but fell for cheaper brands in a bid to save money. These foundations would leave my face looking cakey and orange, not lasting more than a couple of hours. I eventually lost faith in foundation and blamed 'bad skin' after having children. It wasn't until a spontaneous trip to town and a visit to a Clinique counter that I found the error of my ways!As I sat down nervously ready to be colour matched, I muttered to the assistant that I thought I had enlarged pores and a yellowy undertone to my skin. This was why I thought no foundation would ever work on my skin (especially after trying many foundations all with the same terrible results). I loved how honest she was - explaining that I actually had a rather pinky undertone on pale skin and that I didn't have particularly large pores, instead my problem was acne scarring and blemishes. She recommended this 'Anti-Blemish' foundation and colour matched me to 'Fresh Alabaster'. I was a bit dubious as to me being the palest of the shades but once the product was applied, it looked AMAZING! I walked away feeling like I finally knew my own skin and was so happy that I had found a foundation that gave me the confidence I had missed for a good few years.I do admit I was nervous about trying the foundation at home, especially as I was so out of practice. However, was pleasantly surprised at how easy it applied to my skin and blended in so wonderfully! No streaks, caking or yellow patches! It stays on my skin beautifully all day and leaves me with a lovely dewy look. Most importantly to me, it doesn't feel like I'm caked in makeup and doesn't cause breakouts.I LOVE this foundation! Thank you Clinique! So glad to have the brand back in my life. Less user

Finally found a foundation I LOVE!!!

I am typically not one to review online, but I am so happy with this product that I had to! I used to use Clinique Superfit before it was discontinued. I tried out several Clinique foundations ever since then (probably for about 3 years) and never could find one that compared or that I was even happy with using. Finally, I tried a sample of acne solutions and fell in love! I even like it so much better than the Superfit I used to use. All other foundations I tried were really thick and creamy and gave me coverage that looked like I had makeup caked on. Since I am in my early 20's this is not what I wanted. Acne solutions foundation is very natural looking and has a thin smooth consistency, but it lasts all day and really covers any imperfections. I do not really have acne, only occasional blemishes around that time of the month which is why I never really considered this. At the time I sampled though I did seem to be breaking out more than usual. Ever since I have purchased a bottle of this I have only had just a few blemishes (including around that time of the month). I've been using since August now. It really lasts along time too because I still have the same bottle I purchased in August and I use it everyday for work. Just a little squirt on my fingertip is all I use. I love the bottle too because it is so easy to get out. I hate those glass bottles some of Clinique's foundations come in because I think they are so hard to use! Some people review that it is drying and I see how it could be, but I just put a little extra Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel on before applying and it goes on nice and smoothly and I've never felt too dry when using. Also, I use Redness Solutions Mineral Powder on top because I got it in a free gift and tried it with this and they really seem to mix well (although that bright yellow color is scary, it really has no color at all). This also looks great in pictures!! I do not have that dull problem some people talked about. Overall, I really have zero complaints about this foundation and would recommend it to just about everyone even if you do not really have acne like me! I think it would work great for teens to adults who still get occasional blemishes. Sorry this review was so long but i just had so much good to say about it. Hope it works for you too!!! « less

This product made my acne so much worse! Just because a foundation has Salicylic acid in it does not mean it won’t break you out or clog pores. Look for produces without silicones or talc user

Excellent foundation!

I always have a lot of trouble finding make up that really works. I have oily to very oily skin, especially my T-zone and under my eyes. I have moderate acne, so it is difficult to find a foundation that will stay on all day and still cover all my spots and troublesome oily areas without looking piled on.This foundation does just that. It's one of those products where you can put on as much or as little as you like, without looking over or under done. I put on quite a bit and it still looks natural. I wear it everyday, including to work, where my face often gets even more greasy than usual, but it still stays in place. It creates a matte finish, perfect for my complexion. It does occasionally get a bit greasy after 4-5 hours or so, but I just brush a light layer of powder over the top and it's fine. The blemishes, however, don't show through which let's me know its still staying on. Quite a bit still comes off on my makeup wipes at the end of the day too!I'm one of those people that likes to/needs to wear a fair bit of make up, even if I'm just popping to the shops for some milk, but I feel confident enough just to smooth this into my face and a quick application of mascara and I'm good to go if it's a quick trip.I have quite fair skin so I use shade '02 fresh ivory'. It has a slight yellowish tint to calm down the reddness of spots that might be lurking underneath and it doesn't make me look orange.I'm not too sure how 'anti-blemish' the product is. I don't think it has encouraged more spots like most makeup products do, but I also don't think it has cured any.As for application, I use my fingers and it glides on beautifully. I personally don't like to use a brush, but I imagine it would go on very well with one too.Overall, great product and I highly recommend! Less

Hey Guys, I am looking for a good long wear natural finish foundation! I tried several such as, Too Faced Born this way, Mac Studio Fix, Charlotte Tilbury Flawless finish ... list goes on and on... do any of you have experience with nars or urban decay? Any recommendations? I have oily, sensitive acne prone skin.. thank you.

This is what I use and my skin sounds a lot like yours. It’s specifically made for sensitive, acne prone skin, and it really helps me. Just be careful though, a little goes a long way 😂

Any holy grail foundations? One that looks flawless and super natural. I feel like I tend to look cakey everytime I put foundation on & I blend it out so much and it still looks cakey😞 Maybe my primer isn’t right, my moisturizer to go with it. I don’t know

My favorite foundation I’ve ever tried. Even if you don’t have acne bad or anything the foundation is still wonderful. I used it then stupidly tried something else because it was cheaper (bad idea) I had to go back to Clinique 🥳

My makeup always looks cakey even when I moisturize like crazy. I’ve used a bunch of different moisturizing gels and creams and I use face oil and I use hyaluronic acid. I do that twice a day usually and my makeup always looks like butt like a hour into the day. What do I do?

I have dry skin too and I noticed I can’t use heavy makeup like Mac or Estée Lauder because I will look cakey and will crease.. The best foundation I’ve used is from Clinique the acne one.. it covers well and doesn’t dry out my skin or make me look cakey.. also using a water based primer helps!
