        First Moisture Surge Tinted w SPF 15...my holy grail. Dramatically Different Moisturizer--reformulated what was essentially the benchmark for a good moisturizer. Now this. You keep discontinuing and reformulating the only things I could use without my face turning into a pizza. I just can't take it anymore. I knew this was coming. It was the only foundation left in your line-up that wasn't dominated by all the newer cheap ingredients that just clog the plumbing out of your pores. You've completely ditched your appeal to the market. Users chose Clinique because it kept your skin clear, beautiful and healthy. It catered to allergy and acne-prone and sensitive skin. Now, you've discarded all your best products to play with a bunch of crayons. Great marketing scheme. You still have a couple products that I absolutely RELY on, but I'm afraid to tell you what they are for fear that you will discontinue them, because I'm now convinced that you HATE your customers.

        I gave this foundation a try once because my friend told me it was good! I kind like the subtle shimmer in the foundation which gave my face a healthy glow looking under the sun. But this foundation will clog in my pores if I didn;t do enough work on moisturizing my face first. A little bit try for my normal skin. The texture is not so fluid and it has medium coverage. I will prefer a foudation that gives more moisturized feeling. So I think maybe people with oily skin will love it more.

        Great in high humidity

        By 

        from Norfolk, VA

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup:

        Ninety degrees, office right beside the bay, super high humidity. This foundation stayed put all day, didn't turn my face into an oil slick, and didn't melt into my lines and wrinkles. Really like it! The only thing that holds it back from a full five stars is that I am just a little darker that a paler shade and a little lighter than the next one, so I may have to mix two to get a perfect match. Good medium coverage. I didn't get product for this review, but I do get Smart Points for writing it. I don't let this influence my opinions.

        Perfectly Real is perfect!

        By 

        from NJ

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup:

        I was so sad to be told by a Clinique counter person in the mall that this makeup would be discontinued. I love this foundation! it covers smoothly, doesn't dry my skin out or make it oily. I asked her what to use instead. I was told Even Better foundation. I tried it and did not like it. It made my skin very dry and looked chalky. I was so happy to find that I could still get my Perfectly Real in shade #08! I bought several just in case they are really discontinued. Please don't stop making this foundation! It's the only one I really like and can use!

        I've Been Using Perfectly Real for Years!

        By 

        from Arizona

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup:

        I would much appreciate it if you please never discontinue the Perfectly Real makeup in Shade 14! I've been using this same foundation for years now, and it has never faltered! It makes my skin feel beautiful and blends like a dream. I don't need anything other than this makeup and mascara for work daily.

        The Absolute BEST Foundation!

        By 

        from Oregon

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup:

        This is byfar the best foundation I have ever had. It's the only one I use! Doesn't cake or crease, feels light and soft, yet has the highest coverage of any foundation I've tried. No need for building it up. I hope it will stick around forever! Shade 01 is perfect for me as I am very fair skinned.

        Perfect

        By 

        from North Carolina

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup:

        This is my go-to foundation. During the summer the lightest shade is perfect for me (someone who is very very fair skinned) and in the winter I mix it with a lighter shade of foundation to get the perfect color. It lasts very well and blends easily.

        My go to foundation!

        By 

        from North Dakota

        Comments about Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup:

        I've tried numerous foundations and always end up coming back to Clinique perfectly real. I have dry/combination skin with redness and breakouts. This is one of the few foundations that does not irritate my skin or make me breakout. The coverage is light but covers exactly what I want it too!

        This was not for me. Made my face shiny and the colors didn�t have a good option for me. I ended up getting rid of it.
