Whether you already use Clinique foundation in your daily makeup routine or have been wanting to try one of their foundations, this is a good sale. I recently reviewed two of their best-selling foundations in my Forgotten Best Sellers: Clinique post. If you are interested in a review of the Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer or the Stay Matte Foundation, you can check that post out.

Clinique Beyond Perfecting, $34.00** ($24.00 during sale)

Clinique Beyond Perfecting is one of the best full coverage foundations for my dry skin so I have tried several shades over the years. My best match is WN82 Latte for most of the year but WN98 Cream Caramel works a bit better in the summer despite being a little orange on me. As a heads up, I do think the shade WN82 Latte has been discontinued because it is in the last call section on the Clinique website. Pictured below are shades CN90 Sand, WN82 Latte, WN98 Cream Caramel, WN 114 Golden.

Forgotten Best Sellers: Clinique

I’m continuing on with this series and talking about some products that I don’t hear mentioned much anymore, but they still manage to make it on the brand’s bestsellers list. I have already done a best sellers post on MAC, NARS, Bobbi Brown, and Laura Mercier if you’d like to check those out. . Today I’m revisiting some Clinique products. If you like shopping directly from the brand’s website, there are some Valentine’s Day markdowns. It is 25% off select items and that ends on 15 February 2022.

I have used some pictures from my old blog (sensitive beauty blog) for a couple of the products I don’t own at the moment. So you may notice the watermark in the Stay Matte Foundation image or that I’ve lost weight since the swatches for that and the Morning Java eyeshadow quad was taken. So anyway, let’s get to it.

I have mentioned this foundation before in my fall makeup edit from 2020 (check that out here) if you want more information. Long story short, this is one of my favorite full coverage foundations for my dry skin. It does transfer some, but it is a trade-off that I deal with because it looks so nice on me.

Update March 4, 2022: I posted more swatches of this foundation in the shades WN76 Toasted Wheat, CN90 Sand, WN98 Cream Caramel, WN114 Golden, and WN 125 Mahogany. You can check that out by clicking here.

The Fall Makeup Edit (2020)

MAC raizin Blush, NARS Savage blush, NARS Noumea and Guayaquil Eyeshadow, Revlon Raisin Rage, Chanel Antoinette, Beccay Maui Nights, Clinique WN 82 Latte, Chanel pourpre profound, Dior Sienna (swatches on medium dark skin)

I decided to pick out some products to focus on this season. I don’t usually care whether a particular shade coordinates with the season, but I wanted to try something different this year. This assortment went in a somewhat monochromatic direction, which is a look I don’t mind. But I’ll see how long it lasts before I want to swap any of these out.

Foundation – Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer (WN 82 Latte)**

For my dry skin, this is the best-looking finish on my skin that I have come across. The brand claims a natural matte finish, which I always assume means satin, and I would agree with that. I have no issues with wear time, but due to my dry skin, I hardly ever do. While it does last throughout the day, it is not transfer-proof or resistant. I have worn it on its own, but it transfers easily. So I prefer to set it with powder. The powders that I do not find to change the beautiful finish are the Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder** (reviewed here) and the now discontinued MAC Next to Nothing Powder. However, any setting powder you prefer will work if you do not mind a more matte finish. This foundation is one of my favorites that I have been using for over two years now and have repurchased.

Clinique Lid Pops (Willow Pop and Grape Pop)

If you are interested in these or any Clinique products, now through March 21, 2020, Clinique loyalty members can get 30% off any order (exclusions apply).

Clinique Lid Pop – Willow Pop, $19.50**

When I purchased Willow Pop I was hoping for gold that leans green, but this shade is definitely a straight-up green.  So basically, the name is accurate.  The shade is very pretty and it works well, it just wasn’t suited to my taste.

Clinique Lid Pop – Grape Pop, $19.50

Grape Pop has a nice texture, it is smooth and buildable.  But there is something about the color that ends up looking a little dull once it is on my eyes.

These are decent shadows, but I think that their All About Shadow line of eyeshadows is better quality for the price.  Some of my favorites are the quad in morning java (see swatches here) and the single in chocolate covered cherry.

Update February 15, 2022: Clinique Lid Pop Eyeshadows seemed to have been discontinued, but if you can find any remaining inventory, they retail for $19.50**.
