My go-to foundation
I have used this foundation for years and it's hands down the best ever. It's light to medium coverage and looks completely natural - not caked on or patchy. It's easy to apply with fingers, but for an airbrushed effect use a beauty sponge or brush. I tend to have dry skin and it always looks smooth and lasts all day. If you're looking for a new foundation, this product is a must try!

Great coverage and a smooth, glowy finish.
I received a few samples of this foundation from my local department store, enough to last around a month if used conservatively.
I've been breaking out recently with the other foundations I've been using and so decided to give this one a try. So far, after a few weeks of use, my skin feels and looks much better. Clinique's Even Better Foundation gives decent but buildable coverage that allows skin to breathe whilst covering most imperfections and creating an even skintone. Overall, skin looks much brighter, healthier and flawless. Even without the foundation I have noticed much improvement in my skin. While other foundations have led to drier skin or breaking out this one has been working really well for me so far. As someone with very dry and sensitive skin I'm very happy to have found a foundation that significantly improves the appearance of my skin and makes it feel much smoother and healthier. If you're looking for a long lasting foundation with great coverage that is suitable for all skin types then I would definitely recommend considering investing in this foundation.

You'll never look back!
This is one of my ultimate makeup accessory , I never leave home without it! Due to my ultra sensitive skin it is the calmest foundation ever. Not only does it give great coverage...as long as you get the tone right, you get a great moisturised feeling too. It costs a bit more than your regular makeup but it's well worth and really how much money do we waste on products we use once.? Best to ask for a small sample,generally Clinque reps are generous,helpful and informative. It's because they can stand by their product and say this works!! Give it a whirl you won't look back.

Review for people with dry & dehydrated skin
NOTE: My Clinique sales assistant gave me a generous sample in shade one so that I could try it at home (enough for about seven days).
Even Better Makeup is a medium coverage foundation, and it does a great job at toning down the redness on my cheeks and minor imperfections, without the need for a concealer. It gives a natural finish. At first I thought that I had found the perfect daytime foundation. It was only when I looked at my face in a magnifying mirror that I saw it accentuated flakiness around my nose and it had a drying effect around my lips. I realised that I needed a richer moisturiser as a base, so I've been applying rosehip oil onto my bare skin, waiting for it to sink in, then applying Even Better Makeup over it. That made a difference.
I have always had difficulty with foundations going patchy, most likely due to my skin's dryness and dehydration. Clinique's Even Better Makeup doesn't go patchy, even after a few hours. It is also one of the longest lasting foundations I've found in recent times.
If you have dry and dehydrated skin, and you are considering buying this foundation, I recommend that you ask for a sample to try it at home first. You could try experimenting with primers, foundation brushes, damp sponges etc. Of course, there are other Clinique foundations that are specifically for dry skin.

Amazing Coverage ideal for problem skin!
I decided to go to clinique after deciding it was a very popular fall back for many product reviewers.
I am 20 and still am very prone to getting yucky pimples that stick around a while.
This I find is quite thin and light but has an amazing coverage and just evens my skin tone.
It washes off easily with cleanser but doesn't wear off throughout the day.

I have been looking for an everyday foundation that has light-medium coverage and was suggested Clinique's Even Better foundation. It feels really soft and it's easy to apply.

I like this foundation. It has a nice dewy finish to my skin and doesn't point out my dry parts of my face at all! I'd def buy this again. It offers a good coverage with just a little amount used!

This is my all year round foundation because it doesn't cake or start to go flakey it lasts all day and with my Clinique pressed powder it make my skin look flawless and it even contains SPF I use neutral mixed in with beige and it matches my skin tone perfectly.

Gorgeous dewy finish, medium coverage and wonderful consistency. So easy to apply and covers up my redness and pimples with a thin layer. If only the bottle was bigger and cheaper! i wear it over Maybelline concealer with loose powder over the top and it stays allllllll day

The Even Better Makeup is an amazing foundation as it comes in a variety of shades to suit different skin tones and conditions, whether it be more dry, oily or combination. The foundation provides medium coverage while still maintaining a beautiful and natural look. It is smooth and applies well, leaving a healthy sheen once applied. There is no flakiness or dryness and is very long wearing.
