Review: Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup

By 17:52 , , ,

It has been a while since I've been this excited about foundation, more so a Clinique one. I always found Clinique foundations a bit too pink for my shade, so I was really surprised when I found a good match with the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup.

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup is a powerful anti-blemish foundation solution designed for Asian skins. It is formulated to minimise excess sebum without drying out the skin while camouflaging blemishes, neutralising visible skin redness and also helps to conceal the appearance of pores. This anti-blemish foundation works to actively treat blemishes with anti-bacterial ingredients which helps control the spread of bacteria. Continued use of Anti-Blemish Solution Liquid Makeup maintains moisture balance and controls oil to avoid or minimise future breakouts. While treating, balancing and controlling, it's meant to give a water-resistant matte finish which is suppose to last through Asian humidity. Even though the foundation is under the Anti-Blemish Solutions range, it can still be used for combination-oily skin despite it not being acne-prone.

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup contains various active ingredients which has been recommended by Clinique Dermatologists: 
  • Anti-blemish: Chlorphenesin controls the spread of blemishes across the skin’s surface.
  • Control-oilLaminaria Saccharina helps minimize excess production of oil.
  • Non-irritatingCaffeine calms and soothes skin whilst reducing surface redness.
  • ExfoliateSalicylic Acid promotes healthy cell turnover to clear away dead surface cells that clog pores.

For a foundation that gives medium coverage, Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup is amazingly lightweight. It spreads easily but also sets quite fast. So you have to be really quick when blending it out. I use my fingers for application and didn't find difficulty with it all. It minimises redness dues to breakout quite well but I did use concealer on top of it to completely cover up the angry red ones. Due to the medium coverage, it evens out my skin tone quite well. It generally wears comfortably without drying out my skin despite controlling the oils.

The Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup without a base lasted about 90 minutes before I noticed some shine on the t-zone area. Even then, with blotting the foundation does not transfer onto the blotting paper. It lasted a good 4 hours without migrating. You know how sometimes you might appear a shade darker after the foundation oxidises, well I still looked pretty fresh and put together after a few hours. You don't have to worry about having that white cast either as the  Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup is formulated without SPF which makes it perfect for evening outs or when there's flash photography involved. Which also means if you're wearing this in the day, sun protection is essential. It comes in a ophthalmic-tipped bottle which makes it very easy to dispense the required amount. 

Here's the clincher though, the shade. I was matched to True Beige (66) which has stronger yellow pigments with minimal pink pigments. Turns out that True Beige is a good match to my skin tone with strong yellow undertones. You can't imagine how excited I was when I first tried it on. Finally I look a natural colour! If you're a medium yellow like me, you have to try this!

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup is oil-free and is available in five shades to accommodate a wide variety of Asian skin tones - Ivory, Fresh Beige, Cream Beige and True Beige. It retails at RM125 (30ml) and is available at Clinique counters and
