Clinique - Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup
- Overall rating:
Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup is a powerful, yet gentle foundation formula designed to keep blemish-prone skin feeling comfortable thanks to a blend of balancing ingredients that help to minimise sebum without depleting the skin’s moisture balance.
The moderate coverage formula camouflages blemishes, neutralizes visible skin redness and helps to conceal the appearance of pores.
This lightweight, long-wearing foundation provides a refreshing cooling sensation upon application that blends easily and gently to not irritate already sensitive skin, while also working to actively treat blemishes.
The formula contains salicylic acid to exfoliate, laminaria sachacrina to control oil, hydroxydecanoic acid to help control the spread of blemish causing agents and caffeine to minimise irritation. Allergy tested, the formula is 100 per cent free from fragrance and oil. It is dermatologist and opthalmologist tested and is non-acnegenic.
Available in eight shades from very fair to deep.

Didn't break me out, YES!
I managed to get two sample pots (in two different colours, yes, the both matched me too) and have been super impressed.
The foundation is pretty full coverage in my opinion. I'm not used to packing on product and usually only use bb creams so it could just be a contrast to what I'm used to.
It goes on very smooth and didn't cake up my face. I wore it for roughly 5-8 hours and didn't see much fading of the product.
The main point is: IT DIDN'T BREAK ME OUT. I am so, SO pleased with this. I can't say for sure if it "treated" my existing spots like the lady told me it would but the holy grail aspect is it didn't make them worse.
I will also recommend getting colour matched at a few different counters if you are new to it (like I am!) I got two different matches. When I go to buy a proper bottle I will get colour matched AGAIN and see what the tie breaker will be!

Natural look, ong lasting, matte and medium coverage!
Before taking the plunge to switch back to a liquid after being obsessed with powders for so long, I tested out a sample size of the Anti-Blemish solution from my close by Clinique stall in the shopping centre. I had tried it on in store but was not happy with the results and wished to try at home during my own routine.. SO GLAD I DID!
This is such a beautiful foundation to wear, it lets your skin breathe, but appears light and fresh on the skin with a matte finish. Looks so natural, and effortlessly covers up bumbs and redness (I regularly break out in hives all over my face and neck and this really does the trick to cover them up!!), and has a pleasant gentle smell that is barely noticable if you are sensitive to fragrances.
It actually does more good than harm, which can't be said about too many foundations, especially liquids. Safe to say I have purchased the full size product and am thus far extremely happy with the results.
Just a side note, the colour alabaster blends perfectly into my now very fair winter skin, for those who are worried about colour matching, and a little bit of the foundation goes quite a long way, especially when applied with a foundation brush (which I would recommend!).
I also find with my rather oily and pimple prone skin this foundation does help to treat my problem areas of oiliness and outbreaks, its quite soothing and gentle on the skin and really doesn't look or feel to tacky, even when applying.
Would highly recommend! Only cons are the plastic bottle (who thought of that?!) and the advertising as 'full coverage', when I would describe it as more of a medium natural coverage and I found this a bit deceptive when purchasing... but I would purchase again!!

I really love this foundation, it makes my complexion look really good and covers blemishes that are over my cheeks. I would definitely buy this again, its not oily. It does feel a little dry on the face but it really does do the job.

This foundation looked really cakey and blotchy on my skin and emphasised my blemishes. I wore this foundation when i went clubbing and by the middle of the night it was already wearing off. I returned this foundation the next day. I usually love clinique foundations but was so disappointed with this product

long lasting, perfect medium coverage
this is my holy grail foundation. Mostly because the lightest shade is the only foundation I have ever worn that perfectly matches my skin tone. It applies smoothly and evenly with minimal effort, evens out my skin without looking too cakey, and lasts all day.
I have seen other reviews saying that this foundation was to heavy/cakey on them. I will say that I have VERY oily skin, even in winter. So this was perfect for me.

Does as it says!
Great foundation and it doesn't make my skin break out! The Clinique site advertised it as moderate to full coverage but I found it was more on the sheer side. I also find on warm days it tends to sink into my pores – losing its lovely powdery finish. But all in all I really like this product and definitely recommend it.

Perfect for any skin - especially acne prone (well duh)
With teenage skin, oily and acne prone, foundations slide of my face and leave me feeling gross at the end of the day. This stuff actually feels like helping my skin - which is so refreshing for a foundation. It stays all day and doesn't get oily. The only way this foundation comes off via makeup remover and washing your face (granted you use a primer before application however). It is probably one of the best foundations out there for acne prone skin.

Flawless and Matte
This is a very nice foundation. It has pretty good medium coverage that is buildable. It feels really smooth on your skin when you apply it and it dries to a lovely matte finish. This is very light unlike a lot of other foundations and it lets your skin breathe. The bottle is a one of those 'squeezy' ones which is great because you can control how much product you want.
But note that you have to squeeze gently as you can squeeze out too much product and you can't put it back in because you can't open the 'neck' of the bottle. Also this foundation doesn't treat acne but it doesn't aggravate it either.

Never Looking Back
I have horrible oily skin, my foundation would never last the day and would always feel heavy and wet. I could never find the right foundation...until this beauty came along! I don't feel like i'm wearing foundation, it's coverage is perfect, it's long lasting and it's OIL FREE! Plus the silver lining on the already amazing cloud it helps calm current break outs and prevent future break out
