Preview of my Review -- Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation.

Hey everyone!

So, on a prowl for new makeup last week and banking on my 15% off coupon to Sephora, I came across this new toy -- Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Foundation.

So, I was a bit skeptical -- I've swatched a few of Clinique's foundations before, and of course, they're all too pink or too orange for my NC 15 skin. I've also tried a few foundations that claim to "absorb excess oil" or "treat and prevent acne," such as Neutrogena's Skin Clearing Foundation, both the original and the 2008 reformulation, and Almay's Clear Complexion Foundation, both with little luck.

However, I was pleasantly surprised with this. I picked this up in 01 - Fresh Alabaster and it's a perfect match! This foundation applies super smoothly and I love the packaging -- super sanitary! It's a medium coverage foundation, but definitely buildable without caking.

This foundation will accent dryness, so, applying a moisturizer before is a must, for all skin types. It feel it does absorb oil and it actually makes it through an 8-hour work day for me with only powdering once.

Am I in love? We'll see -- that's why this is called a preview! I've only been using this for a few days, but I'll keep everyone posted!

Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation can be found at Sephora.com, Clinique Counters, wherever Clinique is sold, and soon to be Clinique.com for $24.

  1. I absolutely LOVE this stuff! I have only been using it for about 3 weeks but it's great! I have been using Almay Foundation and Bare Escentuals but I also got this colour in 01 and it matches perfectly for my winter un-tanned skin!

    I am actually just about to do a review of it on my blog as well! I wanted to wait a few weeks to try it out before posting about it. I think you will be really happy with the results!
