      I have been working in the cosmetic industry for approximately five years now so I am always trying the latest products on myself as well as on my clients. Clinique is a brand that is tried and true, I can always count on their products to do the trick and their Super balanced Compact Makeup is no exception. It provides wonderful coverage without resulting in that caked on overdone look that no one desires.

      This foundation is packaged in a beautiful compact that even provides a full size mirror for application on the go which makes it perfect for those who travel. It is very quick and easy to apply, however I do not recommend the sponge provided for easy application.

      Professional tools always result in a more balanced application which provides fuller coverage. Therefore, if you


      have a lot of skin flaws to cover such as acne, blemishes, discoloration, age spots, sun spots or wrinkles than definitely use a professional foundation brush for application.

      This product is absolutely perefect for those who have combination skin like myself and many of my clients. It is difficult to find a product that caters to those with combination skin, in other words dry in some areas and oily in other areas, but somehow Clinique’s Superbalanced Compact Makeup does the trick.

      It actually manages to moisturize the dry areas of the skin and balance out the oily areas, which actually makes it perfect for those of any skin type. This product delivers the results it claims to deliver and I have had nothing but satisfied clients when I apply it to their skin due to its ability ...


      • to work on a variety of skin types.

        The convenniene of a compact foundation that glides right on cannot be beat. However, I have found that as the day progresses the foundation tends to separate and wear off.

        This product lasts all day unlike other products and if it does happen to begin to wear off, a a quick and easy touch up refreshes the whole look. I would recommend using a light translucent powder with this foundation to set the product in place and ensure the fact that it does not wear off (which it usually does not), especially for the oily T-Zone area that happens to be a staple to the combination skin category.

        This foundation does build very nicely, I would recommend building with a ‘pat’ rather than a ‘dragging’ motion. A build-able

        foundation is key because it caters to those who desire light coverage as well as those who desire a greater, more full coverage for day or evening wear or to cover up more imperfections.

        The only downside is the rather small amount in the refill in relation to the price which is over $25, so be prepared to have to have to buy frequently. Regardless, a little does go a long way if you know how to blend so ask the make-up artist at the store you are buying from to show you how to apply it correctly.

        This way you can save money by not wasting the product as well as achieve better results when it comes to coverage. If you are looking for a medium priced cream compact foundation that provides build-able coverage, Clinique’s Super-balanced Foundation is a definite contender.
