I haven't used much products from Clinique brand. When I was tired of choosing foundation to suit my skin, I read a review about Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Clinique claims that thisproduct is oil free and it is developed by dermatologist. It clears or uneven skin tone in weeks and covers imperfections as it contains vitamin c and antioxidants. Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 comes in a plastic container with a shiny screw type cap. The dispenser allows the right amount of product. It has around 56 shades and choosing the right one to suit your skin tone might be tricky. It is travel friendly and the price is expensive for a 30ml of product. Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 shades ranges from lighest to darkest which makes it suit most of the skin tones. It has a liquid type texture. It applies smoothly and blends perfectly on the skin. It has a medium coverage over blemishes and doesn't get cakey. It hides the dark circles and uneven tones well. It doesn't clog pores and feels lightweight on skin. It stays on skin for long 7 hours. It transfers slightly and could be adjusted with a compact. It suits all types of skin. It moisturizes the skin. As it contains SPF 15, it could be used during daytime and prevents our skin from harmful uv rays. Take the product on the back of your hands. Let it warm by your body temperature. Now keep dots all over your face. You may use a brush or sponge to blend them. As it has a liquid texture, blending is easy. Dab extra dots on the imperfections or the areas to be covered. Set it up using a compact or setting powder. It gives a smooth, natural finish. It hides the dark circles, imperfections and uneven tone instantly but doesn't improve them in due course at the product claimed. It is a good foundation with SPF which suits all type of skin.

Showstopper of foundations!

I always envied those people who had a HG foundation that they had been using since years and didn’t have to look for anything else. For the kind of skin I have, I never found a foundation that was just perfect. Everything had some or the other downside, and I had lost all hope of finding THE foundation for my skin.

When I came across Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15, I didn’t have any expectations. As I said, I had lost all hopes. But, things changed. First things first, I found the perfect match for my skin tone (unbelievable). Next, this product is paraben-free, so I could use it without any worries. It comes with SPF and is sweat, humidity and water-resistant. So far, everything was okay.

I used the foundation on my skin, and it blended like butter. The product vanished off the surface, leaving no visible marks, spots, or imperfections. It didn’t feel heavy, did not enlarge my pores, and didn’t settle into fine lines. I set it with my loose powder and left it. Usually, my skin tends to get oily in 4-5 hours, and that’s when the foundation shows its true colors. But this one didn’t get affected by the oil, sweat, or time. It just stayed as it was.

I used it for four consecutive days to see if it actually worked every day and it didn’t fail me. This is my HG foundation. It is the perfect match for my skin color and skin type, doesn’t cause breakouts, doesn’t clog pores, and doesn’t transfer. I love love love this!

This foundation can survive everything!
4.5/5

PROS

Blends well

Paraben-free

Full coverage

Non-comedogenic

Contains vitamin C and antioxidants

Improves skin’s appearance

CONS

Might feel greasy

Oxidizes a little


I wear this foundation every day to work. Post work, I hit the gym for an intense session of workout and head back home. The best part about this foundation is that it survives everything. Sweat, oil, humidity, pollution, and it stays intact forever. It only comes off when I take it off with my makeup remover at the end of the day.

It has got SPF and is paraben-free. It is enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants. I have noticed the texture of my skin improve over the period I have used this foundation. It makes your skin appear healthy and flawless. What else could one ask for?

Not worth the hype
2/5

PROS

Convenient packaging

Buildable coverage

Extensive shade range

CONS

Not long-lasting

Transfers

Acnegenic

Heavy


Literally everyone who used this product swears about it being the BEST foundation. But, it didn’t work for me. I used this foundation for over a month. It never lasted on my face for more than 4 hours. It gets on to everything my face gets in contact with, including my phone. It’s heavy and greasy. And breaks me out.

I gave this foundation a break for my skin to heal, and it actually healed. It was the foundation and not my skin that was wrong. It does not stand up to its claim and is definitely not worth the price and the hype.

Full coverage but uncomfortable
3.5/5

PROS

Paraben-free

Has SPF

Full coverage

Great packaging

Good consistency

CONS

Clogs pores

Feels heavy

Uncomfortable


I cannot make up my mind about this product. Some features of this foundation are commendable and some I just cannot stand. It has great coverage. Only a little product covers up every imperfection on the face and doesn’t appear cakey or patchy. But, after a while, this foundation feels so heavy on the skin and makes me conscious. Although it doesn’t show, it feels so uncomfortable that I don’t feel like leaving it on my skin. It’s just weird.
