Product Description

Benefits: Moisturizing

Skin Types: All

A foundation-and-concealer in one for a natural, beyond perfected look that lasts 24 hours. Lightweight, moisturizing makeup covers thoroughly without clogging pores. Skin breathes comfortably, color stays true, even through sweat and humidity.

In 27 skin-perfecting shades.
Due to the rich pigment level that enhances this flawless coverage makeup, shades may appear deeper when first applied. Once blended completely and allowed to dry, Beyond Perfecting Makeup will melt into your skin for a Beyond Perfected flawless look. A little goes a long way!

How to Use:

  • Using the large backside of the wand, sweep foundation across your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Then use the angled tip of the applicator–that has a slight dip in it to hold more product–to cover down the bridge of the nose and across the jawline. Blend well with fingers.
  • Finish by using the pointy tip to spot conceal any trouble areas–under the eyes, around the outside of the nose, on top of blemishes. Pat and blend well with fingers.

Review for: Breeze more...
Three to four years ago this would have been too moisturizing for me to use. But now that I'm 26 living in the West Coast with arid climates, this really has been the Holy Grail / Savior for my skin. If I could wear no makeup at all, of course I would to save my skin the exhaustion of having a full face of make-up on my skin 410 Plus hours a day. But as a career woman that can't be helped. This Glides on the skin with just a little bit of buffing, it Blends really flawlessly, and stays on the skin for 8 plus hours. If I am having an extra long day I powder lightly on top with a translucent powder, or even a pigmented powder for extra coverage. I have acne scarring all over my cheeks and Chin area so I really emphasize full coverage. This provides full coverage but with moisture that I have not been able to find in other brands or foundations. The only other foundations that are comprable to this one are expensive Asian brands that I cannot always get my hands on. So this is a close second but it really is so helpful and has been great. I'm the color Breeze which is I believe 0.5 on the scale, and I am NC 15 to 20 in Mac foundations. I use this with the applicator, maybe 5 to 6 dots all over my cheeks and Blended out with a beauty blender or a buffing brush for better coverage. In the winter months this is really great, but in the summer months if you are combination or a little bit earlier than I am., you might need a better translucent powder or a slightly less moisturizing Foundation.

Review for: Cream Caramel more...
Once I find a foundation, I use it for years. This summer, I was producing enough oil to fry fish so I knew I needed to try something different, I said goodbye to my department store brand and wandered to the Clinique counter out of curiosity. They sat me in a chair, matched me and showed me how to apply. I was skeptical as the bottle seemed small for the price and it had an applicator wand. Now, due to my I even skin tone and acne scars, I need full coverage. I also want something fairly matte. Additionally, I’ve always used my fingers to apply my foundation, but switched to a brush with this. Ultimately, I am in love with this product. A tiny bit goes a long way and the coverage is amazing! And I. Still using the same bottle almost 6 months later when I normally have to rebuy once a month. I am beyond pleased.

This foundation is super buildable and can be worn as concealer as well. It works really well for acne coverage. However, it does transfer like crazy; and that is something that annoys me very greatly. However, if you don't mind transfer, than this might be the right match for you. PALE SKIN BEAUTIES, BEWARE! This concealer/foundation oxidizes like craaaazy, so you have to get maybe two shades lighter. If you're really pale like me, lightening drops work as well. I would recommend this foundation to others, depending on who they are (7/10). I do not know if i'll repurchase, since it is a bit pricey, but it does work pretty well.

Overall, I like this foundation. It’s a medium to full coverage foundation and it definitely builds well in my opinion. The only two things that just bother the hell out of me is the undertone and the transfer. I use a pore smoothing primer under this and I set with urban decays all nighter which I feel helps reduce the transfer but only a little. Now the undertone. I got this the color amber (or golden amber idk) but either way it comes off extremely yellow. I can calm it down with some bronzer but I shouldn’t have to for $27. I just think the darker colors need a bit more work with the tone mixing.

Review for: Linen more...
This foundation is my perfect combination of lightweight, mattifying, and build-able coverage. I have oily-combo skin where my T-zone is oily but I have some dry spots on my face as well. This foundation keeps me matte in my oily areas, but doesn't emphasize my dry spots. It doesn't feel heavy on my skin and I can apply a thinner layer all over my face for medium coverage and then spot conceal with the foundation for high coverage without looking cakey. I am very acne prone so I love that a brand I trust for great skincare has come out with a foundation that is perfect for my skin type.

Review for: Breeze more...
I think this is a great foundation for beginners. I bought this at sephora about a year ago and i’m still using the same bottle so it is pretty long lasting. I went in and a sales rep recommended it to me because I’d never worn foundation before. I have a lot of freckles and never felt like I knew how to wear a full face. It’s such a light weight product and it’s so easy to work with. After a year of getting used to using foundation I’ll probably get a more full coverage one to work with but I really have enjoyed this product the past year. It makes my skin look really dewy!!

Review for: Ivory more...

I was really hoping to like this foundation because it has a great price tag especially when considering the amount of product that you get ($28 for 30 mL). I also like this because it has a doe foot applicator, eliminating the step where you have to pump on to your hand then blend into your face with a brush, etc. Unfortunately, this did not work for me at all. It was less than 5 hours before it started running. By the end of the day everything looked like I had been sweating all day. It was worth a try but I did end up returning it.

Review for: Nutty, Sand more...
This foundation gives off a “your skin but better” look. It gives off a bit of coverage but it doesn’t cover all your blemishes. It’s very buildable, but it can feel heavy if you apply too much product. Application-wise, it’s better applied with a brush. However, for me the shade range is weird. The foundation matches me, but the undertone is wrong. I️ find myself mixing the Cover FX foundation drops with it to counteract a red/orange tinge. I️ struggle finding the right foundation shade so mixing the two (Nutty and Sand) with the Cover FX gives me the perfect shade.

Review for: Toasted Wheat more...
I purchased this on a whim a few days ago and couldnt be happier! The shade selection wasnt all that great but I happened to find my perfect match. The coverage was full and didnt look cakey at all. I dont know how crazy I am about the doe-foot applicator but I dont hate it either. It lasted FOREVER. I went out the night i first wore it, came home and fell asleep in my makeup and woke up still looking flawless. Ran a few errands that morning and looked like I had freshly applied foundation. I love it and will definitely be using it on the days I dont want to do much makeup but want nice skin

Review for: Alabaster more...
I received a sample of this. This product is on the heavier side and is very pigmented. As a concealer a little bit goes a long way. As a foundation it can be sheer out by applying with a damp sponge, which gives a very natural finish. My t-zone tends to get shiny so in that area I would set with a powder and be shine-free all day! It has good lasting power as well and still looks good after 8 hours. The only thing is that it can look a bit dry (I tried it with a dewey setting spray) so make sure to moisturize well before applying.

Is this a thick foundation? I have freckles that I hate covering up so I try to find foundations that go on fairly light.
