        I am 50 with oily skin and discolorations from acne years ago. This powder makeup is far superior to others I have tried including the major ones you see most commonly advertised. This product has the coverage that I need but I can still see my skin. It helps to smooth the pores, cover discolorations but I do not look over done. I love the fact that there is a separate compartment for storage of the sponge and that it is washable. This gets 5 stars from me!

        I've always had a hard time finding a foundation that was my shade and looked natural. I have eczema and as a result, my skin is spotty. Someone suggested Perfectly Real Compact Makeup. At first, I was skeptical, because I did not consider Clinique to be a brand for Black women. Boy, was I wrong. Most make-up I've tried had red or pink undertones, none of which matched. 146G was perfect and looked natural. For the first time ever, I began getting compliments on my skin. When I started using the Even Better spot corrector and 3-step skin treatments, my skin looked absolutely gorgeous with the foundation. Now, my shade is gone. I've tried the liquid Perfectly Real replacement and other alternative from Clinique, and it is not the same. Now I'm back where I started 11 years ago. Please bring back shade 146G. No other foundation you make in the shade of Sienna comes close to shade 146G.

        Only Foundation Used for the Past 10 Years

        By 

        from Chicago, IL

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup:

        What else can I say about this foundation? It's perfect. I've used it for over 10 years and I can't see myself switching foundations, ever. Coverage is truly buildable, so you can have a light coverage for an early morning stroll or full coverage for going out on the weekends. I have really oily skin and it does a nice job of covering, but not looking super caked on. If you haven't tried it...just go for it, you won't be sorry!

        Best Powder Foundation w/ beautiful finish ~

        By 

        from Las Vegas, NV

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup:

        I love this powder foundation (Perfectly Real), been using since I was a teenager! It's oil free, fragrance free, and truly provides a natural, beautiful finish - your skin will look healthy. Not mask-like. I've tried other powder foundations in the past, and have always come back to Clinique! I feel the quality of ingredients makes this a winning formula. Lots of shades to choose from, and I found my perfect shade (116). Please never discontinue this product, it's HG status for me. Thank you Clinique for offering great makeup lineup to match your fabulous skincare lineup.

        Just not the best for my aging skin

        By 

        from Golden Lake, ON

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup:

        I wanted something I could take in my purse if needed for a touch up, or to use on trips. I find this looks my more dry skin look too too dry. Still looking for a good Clinique foundation for my skin which used to be combo and now is getting dryer as I age!

        Best oil control powder ever!

        By 

        from West Virginia

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup:

        I spent most of my teenage years and adulthood trying to find a oil control powder to use with my foundation! And, this is by far the best! None the less all Clinique products are awesome but, this works wonders for my oil control. I put this on after applying the stay matte oil control foundation and never have to blot my face for excess oil hours later. I hope they never discontinue the perfectly real compact make-up. I recently was in a department store and some of the shades/colors are being discontinued, like the 120 which was a good color for my skin tone in the summer! I wish they would bring that shade back, hint-hint, lol. But if your looking for the ultimate oil control, please try, I don't think you will be disappointed.

        Really nice coverage, all day long

        By 

        from Pasadena, CA, USA

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup:

        I used to buy the Superpowder Clinique Foundation, but i was searching for something without Titanium Dioxide as a top ingredient, so i tried this one. I was worried the coverage would not be good, or that it would not last all day (i have very long work hours). Instead, perfect! And i think the choice of shades is better. I picked mine using the website test and it really picked the correct shade. Very happy, i will stick to this now :) .

        Sucks as Makeup & Powder

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup:

        I don't think it provides any coverage at all, yet I am all greasy about an hour after applying it and it rubs off on everything. So, basically, I get none of the benefits, but all of the drawbacks to wearing foundation. It is obvious I am wearing makeup, yet it doesn't minimize any imperfections and I get little pimples after just a couple hours. It also collects in lines on my face and wipes off to the faintest touch. I did the foundation finder thing and this was the recommendation. I LOVED the Clinique foundation I used previously, but of course they don't make it anymore.
