Having a good foundation that takes care of the gentle facial skin is a beauty must-have, especially if you are an owner of problematic skin. Even if you are not struggling with acne and breakouts I'm sure everyone had one of those ''bad skin days'' and it is always nice to have a little backup to make a 'bad skin' day better. 

Today I’m going to talk about the Anti-Blemish Solutions™ Liquid Makeup – a liquid foundation specially developed for blemish-prone and oily skin that needs smooth coverage and skin-cleaning treatment benefits. 

About Clinique 

Pioneering in dermatologist-crafted skincare, Clinique stands out for its commitment to science and safety.  Founded in 1968, they were the first to offer allergy-tested, fragrance-free formulas, catering to those with sensitive skin.  This focus on healthy, glowing skin transcends their cleansers and moisturizers, extending into makeup that treats while it beautifies.

  • Texture and formula

Clinique Liquid Makeup Foundation has a very smooth and lightweight texture, the formula of the foundation is oil-free, so the skin always feels fresh and clean. It gives nice medium coverage to the skin and perfectly covers redness and large pores, the finish is matte and natural-looking. But if you need some extra coverage you can always build it up. 

One thing to remember about the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Foundation is that a little of the product goes a long way and you need a small amount to cover the entire face. For those who have a dry and very dry skin type, I would recommend trying a different makeup foundation or applying a nice moisturizing primer before makeup.

Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup by Clinique has a huge range of shades to compliment all skin tones, but my choice was a little bit too dark for me. I got shade "01 Fresh Alabaster" from a very fair color group, but this shade was not a perfect match for my skin, so next time I'm going for a "Fresh Fair".

  • How to Apply Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions 

I like to apply this foundation with my fingers, gently massaging and spreading it all over my face. After the foundation is applied, I set it with a thin coat of translucent powder. The foundation stays put the whole day without fading or budging. If you have problematic skin try to remove this foundation with an oil-free makeup remover or micellar water to prevent future blemishes and pimples.

Final Verdict...

Overall, I loved the Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Foundation by Clinique and I can absolutely recommend it to everyone who is fighting against acne, and blemishes, and needs some additional help. This foundation makes my "bad skin days" so much better and easier. 

A flawless foundation is the key to a perfect makeup look, but having healthy blemish-free skin is even more important. I really hope my review of the Anti-Blemish Foundation by Clinique was interesting and useful for some of you. Have you tried Clinique makeup? Which is your favorite acne/blemish-prone foundation?

Lots of love,
