        This is my first review of a Clinique product, though I have been using them for a few years. In looking at the somewhat mixed reviews of this product. I think people don't understand that this product is for a certain type of skin (oily and acne prone) and to be used as part of a particular type of regimen (do not mix this with other acne topicals unless you intend to).

        This foundation works GREAT for me. Mainly, it DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT like nearly every other foundation and even many other Clinique products I seriously break out from so many things, I have to be super careful about what I put on my face.

        I give this five stars because this product is made for oily and acne prone skin, yet it works like a high end foundation. THANK YOU for making make up that those of us with very picky skin and easily clogged pores can use.

        This has salacylic acid acne medication in it. This is why it is not for the faint of heart. You are basically putting a specific acne MEDICINE all over your face. SA is often used in "spot" treatments but it really is better as an all-over preventative. But using too much of is (such as mixing with another SA topical, or other acne topicals, you can go too far and irritate your skin. So I use this with only sunscreen or moisturizer underneath it during the day, and use any other acne medicine at night.

        SA causes the top layer of your skin to turn over faster, basically. For those of us whose skin clogs because, in part, the top layer is not turning over fast enough (there are other factors too) this is great to have incroporated into a foundation that also doesn't break you out. If you don't need it, it might be slighly irritating like if you used too much retinol or something similar.

        TL;DR: If you have oliy and break-out skin and have responded well to salacylic acid in the past, are looking for a foundation with some buildable coverage, oil control, and if you already have a sunscreen or moisturizer you like to wear under your foundation, give this a try.

        I have been a Clinique customer for many, many years and just love the Clarifying tube and Clarifying powder. When I saw this item I thought well the other acne products work very well so lets give this a try. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        After using for a few weeks I started getting worse than usual breakouts and this was the only thing I changed in my daily skin regimine. It goes on too thick and doesn't cover like it says it does. It feels like a think layer on top of the skin and does not cover the redness. After 5 hours of wear my skin was getting shiny and oily.

        When I spoke to a Clinique consultant they recommended a powder on top of the makeup to "set it in". So now it feels even thicker on my skin and I am having to buy 2 products to do the job of one!

        The Clarifying Powder was an awesome procduct that controled shiny, oily skin, helped with breakouts, and went on in a few seconds.

        With this new product you have to work it from the center of your face to the hairline, as stated by their "how to" instructions. Doing this will stretch the delicate skin layers and cause wrinkles.

        I am not at all happy with this new product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Why doesn't clinique keep the products that acne customers like and ADD to the options available for oily and acne skin customers. The customers with regular skin have numerous options, but we only have a few items to choose from. Maybe it's time to look at other makeup lines.

        Great for flawed, oily skin.

        By 

        from Bay Area, CA

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

        I have tried pretty much all the foundations and not one has held up like this Acne Solutions foundation by Clinique. I've been using it for about two years now and I will probably never look at another foundation again - so long as Clinique keeps making this! I have oily skin that is prone to redness and blemishes and this foundation does an amazing job of staying put (most everything else I've tried melts off or turns translucent within an hour) and provides excellent coverage. I usually pair the foundation with the matching powder. It's an amazing feeling to not be embarrassed about my skin.

        Good Oil Control

        By 

        from Canada

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

        I had been looking for a foundation that wouldn't make me breakout until I finally found Clinique's Acne Solutions Foundation and I stopped looking! It gives me good coverage and has salicylic acid to prevent acnes. I still do get one or two acnes a month but it was a lot worse when I was using other foundations. Using this together with other acne solutions products could make your skin dry but I have a very oily skin and this helps control the oil. I have the "fresh vanilla" colour. It goes perfect with my skin tone and is not as dark as it looks on the website.

        The only makeup my dermatologist recommends

        By 

        from Iowa

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

        For years and years I battled extreme acne. Didn't know at the time my cheap foundation was contributing to the acne. I would use even more foundation to try to cover up the acne, which made the acne even worse, and therefore perpetuating the cycle. Once I started seeing a dermatologist, things dramatically improved when he told me to stop using the cheap makeup. He told me that one day he took his wife out to a department store and they went from makeup counter to makeup counter. She tried the makeup on; he stood there and read the ingredients. After that, he said the only makeup line he recommends to patients is Clinique. I'm particular, for his acne patients he recommends the Acne Solutions line. Fragrance in foundations and soaps is what was causing my breakouts. I've been using the Acne Solutions line for more than 15 years and my skin is so much better. This foundation stays very even all day. It doesn't cake on and dries nicely. It does fairly well with oil control. I'm going to start using the foundation primer and I suspect that will help even more. Highly recommend this product, especially for teenage girls. Wish I'd know about it when I was in high school and college. I'm 41 now and still using it.

        Horrible. Not only did it dry out my skin, it also looked so nasty where my breakouts were. I can't believe I was out the whole day looking like a clown. I made sure it was blended on my face. I looked cakey. Will not use again.

        Incredible Foundation With A Real Impact

        By 

        from New York, NY, USA

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

        I'll start out by stating how, I am allergic to EVERYTHING! Other brands have not been able to work for me causing extreme irritation, which is why Clinique skin-care & makeup is forever my go-to. I initially ordered this foundation from a department store & have repurchased it three times since, as well as recommended it to family/friends, who have also had tremendous results. A few months ago, I started to develop adult acne all over my chin, forehead & a few spots on my chest, resulting in discoloration, largely affecting my confidence. The first application of this product changed everything; not only did it cover the said areas, but, it fully concealed all of the redness/blotches & has made my skin healthier in a short amount of time. Overall, I can't say enough about this miracle worker, especially for highly sensitive skin or individuals who have severe allergies. Whether you're looking for a product as an instant fix, or something long term; this is it! The coverage is naturally beautiful & the effects have changed my life.

        I love how it covers up the redness. It's lightweight I don't even notice I'm wearing it. I've had fewer breakouts since using this foundation. Definitely a must have for acne prone skin.

        My Go-To Beauty Product

        By 

        from Iowa

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup:

        My skin has changed dramatically since I started wearing Clinique makeup about 4 years ago. I love the Acne Solutions foundation - I believe it is the main contributor to my decreased breakouts and redness. The Acne Soultions makeup feels light on my face but provides nice coverage. When I want to have a more natural look, I wear that alone. When I want a fuller coverage, I pair the Acne Soultions with the Superpowder Double Face Powder. The two go really well together! I will forever be a Clinique customer!!
