Review for: Other more...
I first bought this when I was in high school and I have kept one on hand ever since! As far as coverage goes, this tends to be on the lighter side. If I have a particularly red or dark spot on my face, this won't cover it up on its own. But I love how lightweight this feels on the skin and how natural it looks! It smooths out most of my minor skin imperfections and makes everything look flawless (when my skin is doing alright). There are days where I want more coverage and I won't reach for this, but when I'm just out running errands or trying to look put together this is the best! I have noticed that I do get shiny throughout the day in the summertime and I'm not a huge fan of that, but I don't notice it getting cakey. (Also thought I should mention that I use this in the shade Buff, but it's not listed under the shades. It's the perfect light shade with a yellow undertone, I usually struggle to find a match this good)

This is the only foundation that I will use because it simply is amazing. I have tried so many different foundations and feel this one is the best for my skin type. I have rather sensitive skin and this foundation does not break me out or bring out any imperfections in my skin. If I have any dry or oily patches this foundation will smooth my skin so it all looks the same texture. This foundation goes on smooth and doesn't leave my face looking too dewy, just a natural silky look. The other great benefit to this foundation is the coverage. The coverage is very buildable and does not look cakey, sometimes I don't even need to use concealer to cover imperfections because the foundation does it for me.

Review for: 01 Alabaster more...
I wish that the shade range was a little better because even the lightest/coolest shade is just slightly too dark for me during the Fall and Winter when I'm at my palest.  However, I can wear Alabaster in the summer.  I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation; in general I feel as though Clinique is overlooked somewhat as a brand and I have only tried a handful of products (which included some hits and misses).  The foundation was very easy to apply and I think it has light to medium coverage which is what I prefer.  It has a natural satin finish and although it doesn't dry down right away, I found that applying a light setting powder helped it to not feel tacky and improved the wear time somewhat.  Without setting it, it doesn't wear quite as long as some foundations that I've tried but it's not the worst, either, and I can get a pretty full day without it fading much.  It feels comfortable and I appreciate the light SPF and I also appreciate that it doesn't seem to oxidize on my skin.  Overall I'm enjoying this much more than I thought I might and I will be reaching for this quite a bit!

Review for: 07 Vanilla more...
This was more like an even worse for me lol. Just no. I let the clinician choose my shade or make up artist if you will and um regretful but let’s face it the Clinique counter is pushy and annoying. Okay so reasons I hated this foundation:
- Light coverage
- Oily and makes you break out
- (even if you set it looks oily idk 🤷🏼‍♀️)
- Expensive for how much is sucks?
- (Disclaimer: I have fair sensitive skin on the dry side. I am picky with my foundation)
- I should have a picture but I don’t. I never think about a picture of it’s a fail.

Review for: 18 Deep Neutral more...
It’s amazing it makes your coverage look like skin it gives your skin a very healthy glow. Gorgeous. It blends amazing with your skin. The only con I have is that since I have oily skin at the end of the day it looks very oily or it looks like it’s gone except in the places it has been set with powder. I think you need to work with it but for $30 i don’t think you need to work with it, but overall a very good product.

Review for: 04 Cream Chamois more...
I really been wanting to try this for so long so while visiting and browsing sephora I had requested a sample... Its pricey so I didn't want to flat out jusy purchase. Anyways I think I liked it but not 100 percent sure... Sample wasn't big enough for me to make a decision on just yet :(
Anyways I really wanted to love this at first swipe and who knows if i do since it wasn't enough. I never tried a Clinique product I didn't like. They are one of my favourite brands and their make up remover is BY FAR THE BEST EVER! love getting Clinique samples aswell! All their products that tried are amazing so I'm sure this is aswell but I just don't know yet :( maybe Il just have to give in and buy the bottle 🤷

THIS. IS. MY. JAM. Literally this foundation is everything to me. I need to buy a different shade but honestly this is my favorite foundation in my collection right now. This literally covers like a dream and feels so silky on the skin. It has a natural finish and is not oily at all. Not to mention it really helps hide all of my fine lines. This is perfect. I wish it was a little cheaper but for what I get out of this I'll gladly pay the 30$.

Review for: 04 Cream Chamois more...
I have been using this Foundation for over 2 years. It is honestly one of the best and most underrated foundations in my opinion. Medium coverage, and it is buildable. It definitely is for all skin types also. I can't say that I have seen improvements with regards to a more-even skin tone, because that's just hard to keep track if it's really working. This Foundation is perfect for school, work, or special occasions!

Review for: 26 Cashew more...
Clinique Even Better foundation is the only foundation that I use. I have combination skin, as well as an uneven skin tone. I suffer from dark post acne marks which this product provides the right amount of coverage to cover them. It evens out my skin tone, giving me one solid nice color. Unfortunately, it is not long lasting. By the end of the night most of my foundation is no longer on, even after using a face primer, setting powder, and setting spray. The biggest problem I have is the foundation transferring on to everything. I have to be careful when giving someone a hug because the foundation will wipe off on their shirt. Overall, I still use the product because it is the only product that works for me at the moment and I only need one foundation to match my skin and don’t have to worry about mixing more than one color to match my shade.

Review for: 04 Cream Chamois more...
I’m giving this foundation 3 stars for the fact that the finish is actually beautiful and lightweight. However, after using this about 5-6 times I started noticing breakouts all over my nose and chin. I’ve never had acne issues and usually only get 1-2 pimples a month. Once I stopped using this foundation my skin cleared up again. I don’t have sensitive skin and have never had any reaction to any other makeup product.
