  1. Bought this couple of days ago in Ivory, and I look like I’ve been tangoed. And normally a Neutral in Clinique for my medium fair skin tone. Totally agree, great foundation, rubbish shades for lighter skin tones. What gives?

    1. Quite a few people have said that now! Isn’t it frustrating? I hope enough people complain so they sort it out as the product itself is incredible. I’m wondering if it’s something to do with the intense pigmentation? I’ve never had an issue with colour-matching with them before, so it’s very strange xx

  2. I can just about get away with the palest shade of this.. It might just finally tempt me away from double wear. My delinquent skin needs a full coverage & this is such a lovely finish. I am on the pale side of medium and of the lightest shade is ok for me loads of people wouldn’t be able to use this. Clinque are missing out on so many potential sales.

    1. I couldn’t agree more – I’m so surprised they haven’t released paler shades and I really hope they update the shade range soon as it is an amazing foundation; I can easily see it being my Holy Grail finish if they do release a shade that doesn’t leave me looking like an Oompa Loompa xx

    1. That’s a good point actually, I hadn’t thought of that! I suppose it’s a lot like the similar concealer wands, but again there are hygiene issues with those too xx

  4. Hi Sascha. Clinique have introduced a few more shades now – have you tried them? I need to go into town to swatch Breeze (shade 0.5) l which looks like a good match for me but Clinique foundation is ALWAYS too dark for me so I’m not risking by buying online! xx

    1. Hi Laurie,

      Thanks so much for your comment. I did post about them actually as Breeze is my perfect match, thankfully! It’s really strange as the Clinque foundations used to be a great match for me, but recently their new releases seem really dark…either that or I’m getting paler! Breeze is well worth a swatch xx
