Not the best choice...
I used a bottle of it but soon moved on. The feel is just all wrong and doesn't have enough coverage. Much prefer other foundations which irritate less and have better coverage.

Used to love but now feels oily.
As a child of the 90's, I was all about Clinique. But recently it started making me break out quite a bit and I found that my liquid foundation I had loved for so many years started feeling really oily on my skin, and like it was just sitting on top of it. Maybe my skin is changing or my preferences, not sure. But sadly, I have had to give this one up in my quest for clear skin.

Good for oily skin and large pores
I have very oily skin with occasional breakouts (~1-2 big pimples a month) and larger pores on my nose. This foundation actually makes my skin look amazing, nearly perfect. It doesn't make my pores look worse, in fact they look way better. I would say this is a medium coverage foundation with mostly pink/cool undertones (most shades run cool). The finish isn't purely matte, more of a satin finish but when powdered down it will not transfer. It will not look cakey even when I use setting powder, contour, blush, highlight and finishing powder. I found it just as easy to blend as the maybelline fit me matte and poreless. This foundation doesn't break me out or clog my pores (I make sure to double cleanse whenever I wear makeup). Overall, I prefer this to my maybelline foundation, Estée Lauder double wear foundation and the Too Faced peach foundation.

Broke me out in blisters
I'm so sad because this foundation is beautiful on the skin. Makes my face look flawless. I wore this foundation for a really long time and over time it completely destroyed my skin. Do not use sensitive skinned people!

Just ok.
Kept my face matte however the shades changed color when my face was oily.

Dry patches all over face after using, burns while applying.. EEK
I really wanted to love this foundation because I have heard so many good things about it! HOWEVER, this foundation is not for me :( This foundation completely dried my skin out and I have to stop using it! Also, every time I apply this foundation it BURNS my skin. This is not ok, I also think that it is making me break out more and is giving me redness. Maybe I just have SUPER sensitive skin and I react to salicylic acid. I definitely do not recommend for someone with sensitive skin.

Oxidises, oily, caused cystic acne
upon applying this foundation, even the lightest shade was too dark. It also makes the texture of acne look even worse! The foundation oxidises throughout the day, looking very orange - by no means a natural shade. I have given it 2 stars because it is very full coverage and covers all redness. The foundation does not stay on for very long and became oily after just a few hours. After just a few uses of this foundation, my acne broke out in cystic acne. I have re-visited this foundation and tried to use it in multiple different ways however the flaws still exist for me! Definitely would not recommend for someone with acne.

have repurchased many times
Im not sure if this foundation actually does help your acne in terms of calming breakouts but generally it works really well for me. It goes on well with a beauty blender and has high enough coverage to conceal all my current breakouts as well as any hyper pigmentation I have left over from old spots. I do sometimes get bit oily on my chin throughout the day when wearing this but its nothing that a bit of powder can't fix and it comes in a shade pale enough to match me which is a great bonus as with many foundations I've tried in the past even the palest shade is too dark. I hate spending lots of money on makeup but this is something that i'll happily fork out for, and its not as expensive as other high end brands.

Hate/love it
Doesn't leave ur skin oily, so use a good moisturizer under. It drys on ur skin (which is sometimes a good and bad thing). I use the fairest shade but still it oxidizes and darkens, makes me acne so much more noticeable. It's good coverage tho and from all the foundations I've used I keep coming back to this. I just wish I had better skin so I could do without ANY of these stupid foundations :/
