REVIE: CLINIQUE Makeup Foundations: Clinique Superbalanced vs. Clinique Superfit




✿ Clinique Superbalanced Makeup


CLINIQUE CLAIMS:




An oil-free liquid foundation that adds moisture and subtracts oil where needed. The long-wearing liquid foundation is silky upon application and provides water-resistant, moderate coverage . For combination skin types. Non-acnegenic. Streak-proof and sweat-proof.




I somehow think that this makeup has been under-rated. Though the persistent outcry for the Clinique Superfit Makeup is still high, over-all I still think this is worth your money and is great as an everyday foundation. They call this a 'smart make up' for 2 reasons in my opinion. It absorbs oil wherever it's needed and it moisturizes the skin wherever it needs hydration. I kept an open mind when I got this, as this was the recommended alternative to the discontinued Clinique Superfit Makeup




My take on this shade: 65 Neutral . I am Skin type 3 (combination oily)

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE PRODUCT
  • blendable/smooth texture that gives that dewy finish
  • consistency: creamy yet lightweight; no pore-clogging gunk too
  • oil-free/moisturizing that it melts on my skin so easily, 'almost' traceless
  • buildable coverage, from medium-full
  • lasting power: 4 hours max; there's a high %age of an oil breakthrough afterwards
  • no sensitivity nor breakouts; dermatologist-tested & fragrance free

WHAT I DO NOT LOVE ABOUT THE PRODUCT
  • packaging: glass bottle?! you gottta be kidding me! screw top lid so you have to pour out the contents! it's messy and there's a lot of wasted products. sigh.
  • needs a primer & concealer as it doesn't really stays all day & flawlessly covers up my pores
  • not travel friendly, i have to depot still when I travel so it's a bit of hassle for me
  • wicked price again ?last time I checked it was around PHP1,750 (approx USD39/SGD52at the counters


I'm not sure but with this I think it works better with a sponge rather than a brush. But since I hate using sponges(hello bacteria) I use my fingers instead. Although this foundation doesn't cover every blemishes or imperfection (dark circles and the whatnot) I do see a very noticeable difference on my skin whenever I wear this. It gives my skin that silky feeling and the seamless blending whenever I apply it- is to be noted for. Finish-wise, it's superb. Much needed improvement on the oil control tho.

If you are looking for a foundation that doesn't dry up your skin, get this! Hydrating foundations are very important, so do not just rely on the coverage. They have a lot more shades to choose from. When buying Clinique, don't think of it as burning your own money, rather think of it as worth the investment. 

VERDICT:

 CLINIQUE Superfit VS. CLINIQUE Superbalanced?



SWATCHES:

see the huge colour difference when swatched? that IS why i do not rely on swatches !


superbalanced 65 neutral ON.

superfit 05 neutral ON.


I have tried another Clinique foundation which I purchased around summer of 2011 and it's pretty decent! In fact I loved it,  so I might be putting up another review on that. It's much better when you have a lot more options isn't it? Lastly, here is a humble shoutout to Clinique:

Please bring back Clinique Superfit Makeup - if you may.
