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.

This is 1 of my top 3 foundations!! Idk how i feel about the whole and concealer part put the foundation is amazing! It's got a nice large wand applicator that controls the product so you don't overuse it. Its a buildable full coverage foundtion, that leaves your skin looking pretty flawless on its own but added in with the rest of my face routine is AMAZINGGGG! (Cleanse, tone, MOISTURIZE, prime, Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation and concealer, Tarte Shape Tape concealer, a setting powder, bronze, contour, highlight, blush& setting spray!) That is the recipe for perfectly Flawless face! The formulation if this foundation is really nice! It's pretty thick, not at all liquidity. It blends nicely and you can definitely build it up to your liking. I don't know if I would recommend this for beginners simply because it is a little bit fast drying and it does oxidize on the skin a little bit so the color you initially apply does darken up. Other than that I absolutely love this foundation and I give it 5 Stars hands down!

This foundation is a little thick and has good coverage. I like the applicator, it’s big and reminds me of the tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer applicator. I found that this blended out best with a beauty blender. I actually wore this foundation to the hospital when I went into labor with my son, and I joked to my family that I was testing out its wear. I must say, after an excruciating labor, my foundation still held up and looked good! My biggest issue with this product is actually the swatches online. I went through Clinique to find the foundation shade for me and what I received looked NOTHING like what I saw online. It was easily 5-6 shades darker and very orange. I ordered through Nordstrom’s web site, and I called their customer service and spoke to a beauty specialist who helped me find another shade to suit me. That shade is STILL a little too dark, so I expect to wear that when I have a bit of tan. I would suggest that Clinique updates the swatches they have online, because I feel they do not match the actual product. This foundation is great- I would just go to the store to purchase and try on. Also, it oxidizes! It goes on a little darker than it looks when it sets.

Review for: Breeze more...
I bought this after drugstore foundations had failed me. I couldn't find something that could stand my oily t-zone all day without sliding off or getting cakey. This stuff came to the rescue. It is super lightweight but offers medium coverage when used with a blending sponge. Itlf you use it with a brush, you can achiev e fuller coverage. I find that less is definitely more. It evens out my skin and covers my scars and breakouts without irritating my skin, and survives my t-zone for a full 8 hours. I also have some dry patches, but the product didn't stick to them or accentuate the issue. I really like this stuff, and would absolutely recommend this to a friend.

I heard a lot of amazing things about this foundation from social media and youtubers so i decided to give it a try. I bought it a couple months ago so I was a bit paler then i am now. I got the lightest color they had had Ulta and it was still to dark and looked really orange on my skin. The packaging was cute and I loved the applicator. It vended our very well when I used my beauty blender but I had to return it because of how it didn’t match my skin. My advise is do not try to match your skin when your inside Ulta. Try a couple and walk outside! The lighting it Ulta sucks! I would of loved this foundation if they had a color that matched my skin tone.

Review for: Linen more...
I remember trying this and hating it a few years ago. Then one day I decided to try it again and I love it!
It’s full coverage and lasts all day! It’s definitely not matte, so my oily skin creeps through, but it will last longer ones you set with powder.

The reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because this product oxidizes so much! I have a light neutral skin tone and I find that even the lightest color ends up oxidizing into a warm shade that is a bit too dark for me. But I found that if I take time to blend it down, it looks like I have a really nice tan. So I just spend the time to make it work because I love it that much!

Review for: Creamwhip more...
I love this foundation! The only downside is they don’t offer enough shades. I’ve tried about 5-6 different shades and NOTHING seems to match. I find myself having to buy two different shades just to attempt to get to a shade close to mine. However, I love how this foundation covers anything and everything with very little product! AND it’s only $29, definitely a bang for ya buck! I’ve used this when I had oily/combo skin and also recently when my skin was dry/sensitive/acne prone, and it’s been amazing. It’s SO moisturizing and gives a great radiant and natural finish.Clinique Beyond Perfecting™ Foundation + Concealer

This was my go to for a long time. I bought it based on the concealer and foundation option and because I wanted full, full coverage. It still is one of my favorite foundations to date. I love love LOVE the giant doe foot applicator... makes application so easy and precise, although I do wonder how sanitary it is!! Another star off just because of price. I’m a drugstore kind of girl and it’s just not convenient to purchase a 30 dollar foundation for daily use when drugstore foundations can be just as beautiful. So my suggestion is to count on this one for special events or days, and use a good drugstore for the rest!

Review for: Golden Neutral more...
This is my favorite foundation. I always overlooked the Clinique department in makeup stores but I saw some bloggers rave about it and tried it out. The color I picked online matches my skin perfectly. It almost blends more as the day goes on. My blemishes are concealed with just one coat. This foundation has worked miracles for me and gives me a glow. No other foundation has worked as great as this one and my skin can breathe through it. It’s light weight and delivers the perfect coverage with just one coat. Try it out for the summer and you will not be disappointed. For the price point it’s now my go to foundation.

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.

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