    Haven't found the perfect foundation, but this one will do

    I have used every kind of foundation there is to even out my complexion, from cheap drugstore buys, to the really pricey stuff. I started using Clinique foundations several years ago, and while they aren't perfect, they are the best I've found. I used the Even Better foundation for a couple of years and really liked it, but found out that it was not oil-free and was perhaps contributing to my alre...read moready acne-prone skin. So the Clinique saleswoman suggested I try Perfectly Real. The color I use is a perfect match for my skin and it blends flawlessly. It doesn't feel or look heavy, even when you build up the coverage, and it doesn't melt off halfway through the day. With the use of a good primer, it is almost perfect. I will continue to use for the foreseeable future. — 3 months, 1 week ago

    Its decent

    I Use this when i go out and it looks beautiful in pix. However it can get oily. To make it work i have to use milk of magnesia as a primer. And dont sleep with this or it will cause a pimple or 2. — 2 years, 4 months ago

    awsome!

    This foundation offers the perfect amount of coverage, and stays on all day if you set with a powder. i don't have trouble with oil so i don't worry about shine. Overall just a great foundation. I just feel like its lacking the "wow" factor. I'll probably repurchase — 2 years, 10 months ago

    Flawless finish for special occasions

    This is my all-time favorite liquid foundation. Applied with the right brush (I like to buff it on with a MAC Duo Fibre Large Face Brush, then smooth lightly with fingers) it gives the perfect airbrushed complexion. Applying this with a light hand takes some practice, but the results are worth it for special occasions, and it blends well when using creme blushes. I use MAC studio finish conceal...read moreer over this on problem areas and under eyes, then finish with MAC mineralize skinfinish powder. When I did this, people would comment on my perfect skin (and believe me, my skin is FAR from perfect). As other reviewers have noted, this does not control oil AT ALL... so use a good oil control moisturizer and primer, and something like the Urban Decay De-Slick setting spray if your face is super oily like mine. — 3 years, 1 month ago
