Clinique Foundation Review- Superfit Makeup

Clinique Foundation Review- Superfit Makeup

I have oily skin that is prone to breakouts, and while my skin isn’t in the same “volatile” state as it was before, I wanted a foundation that would give me enough coverage until my skin heals and at the same time something that wouldn’t break me out.

Clinique Superfit Foundation

I chose Clinique Superfit Foundation because (according to Clinque’s website )

  • It’s high performance makeup that stays smooth all day, come stress or high humidity
  • Patented formula uses new technology to wick away sweat and oil, keeping t-zones fresh, fit and free of midday shine or 5 p.m. fadeout.
  • Wears 8 hours
  • Is oil free
  • For dry combination, oily and very oily skin
  • Price : $21.00 for 30 ml.


My experience with Clinique Superfit Foundation:

  • I bought the foundation in Golden Beige. For reference I am a NC40 in MAC.
  • I have been wearing it for about three weeks now.
  • It is medium coverage. On a coverage scale of 1-5, I would give it a 3.5 with MAC Mineralize foundation being a 3 and Revlon Colorstay Foundation being a 5.
  • I apply this foundation with a sponge or my fingers. I don’t think it will work to well with a brush.

Golden Beige 29 was the shade I chose for my foundation.

PROS of Clinique Superfit Foundation:

  • Buildable coverage. When you first put on the foundation it provides a medium coverage, but you can definitely add more on top for more coverage.
  • Doesn’t break me out. I get tiny acne on my skin for MAC foundations sometimes; this didn’t happen to me at all with Clinique Superfit Foundation.
  • Reasonable Price. The bottle is sure to last me 2-3 months even with daily application, so the price is very reasonable.
  • Fragrance free. This doesn’t have a weird perfumy or industrial fragrance of many foundations I have used before. A welcome change for me.
  • Don’t need a primer. I don’t use a primer under this foundation, it pretty much glides over my skin and stays there.
  • Good staying power. It does live up to its claim for lasting for upto 8 hours. Doesn’t get wiped off in the middle of the day.
  • Also does a good job of controlling oil during this time. Has a mattifying effect on my skin.

For skin levels 2,3,4. Dry Combination, Oily and Very Oily skin.


  • Wrong shade. I know this is more of my fault, but I tried two shades Vanilla was the lighter and Golden Beige was a little deeper. In retrospect I should have gone with the Vanilla because Golden Beige seems to turn dark upon application.
  • Which brings me to the next point- oxidation. This foundation turns a little dark upon application due to oxidation, it’s important that you try a sample before buying.
  • Have to shake really well. The formula is such that you have to shake it really well before applying. I think Clinique mixes some pigment into their lighter colors to make them deeper, I once got a random swirl of blackish-gray…weird. But as long as you shake well, you’re good.
  • Ghost face in photos. You have to watch out for flash when using this. My face comes out unnaturally white when photographed. Works fine in natural light.


  • But this if you have oily skin and need a foundation that will keep skin break outs at bay.
  • I will keep this and will alternate it with other foundations.
  • Will I purchase again? I think so. Even though I’m not in love with this foundation, it does do a good job.
  • I think I’ll always keep it for days when my skin isn’t feeling all that good. But for events it’s definitely a no-no!


  • Quality 4/5
  • Price 5/5
  • Packaging 3/5
  • Availability 4/5

              1. Is that coconut water or coca cola?
                Or something else…..?

                Btw…only 4 weeks to halloween! What are y’all dressing up as?

                1. It’s coconut water, D. 🙂

                  We don’t celebrate halloween here.. It’s only Radhika who would be celebrating it. she is planning to dress up as a vampire. Taking inspiration by watching Twilight and new moon. 😀 😀

                  I am very scared of her. 😛

  1. I actually like Clinique foundation.. I tried it at a store and loved it.. I’m not sure if it’s Superfit.. I have it in my wishlist and would be getting it soon 🙂

    1. Do you remember if it was a glass or plastic bottle?
      SuperFit and Even Better come in plastic bottles, the rest of their foundations come in glass bottles!

  2. :rotfl:

    Hey Mrunmayee!
    I wouldn’t call it “too runny,” but yes it’s definitely on the thinner side.
    I would rank like this in terms of viscosity:
    MAC Mineralize Foundation < Clinique SuperFit Foundation < MAC Studio Fix Fluid

    Hope that helps….somewhat 🙂

    P.S. where did your blog go?

    1. hehe…We can celebrate halloween here. Let us all get into the best halloween make up you can come up with and send the pics to Rati. A special post dedicated to “IMBB Halloween Celebration”, with pics of all the ladies who would get creative with their halloween make up can be posted here..What say all? 😛 😛 😛

  3. I shall dress up as an old, bald, fat, and hearing-impaired gentleman. Don’t know about others but it will scare my wife enough. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

  4. We don’t have any Halloween characters in Indian mythology except for those rakshasnis like pootna. :tremble: :tremble: …

    He he…we can take our serial’s heroines for reference then, like komolika!! 😛 😛 … Anyone remember any weird witches from Shaktimaan? :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: 😛

  5. Great review Devie, and also loved the dressing up idea..I think i will send out a look of Vic Becks 😀 Lots of tan/bronzer/bronzer/shimmer/heels/bronzer pretty much it 😀 and my costume is done :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle:
