How is Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup ? Is it a good foundation for acne prone skin ?

1 Answer


Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup (Rs. 2000 for 30 ml) is actually a pretty good foundation that blends easily and provides medium matte coverage.

If you are unsure if it will work for you or not, you can do 2 things:

1. Try it out at a Clinique counter. Then ask for a sample. They should be able to give you a small pot of this enough for 4-5 applications.

2. Or, you could mix (1/3 moisturizer, 2/3 foundation) Clean and Clear Skin Balancing Moisturizer (Rs. 50 for 50 ml) with any matte finish medium/full coverage foundation such as Revlon Colorstay Foundation Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 6 (Oily / Combination Skin, Rs. 800 for 30 ml) or Revlon New Complexion Foundation (DermaBreathe Rs. 560 for 35.5 ml) to get the same finish and anti-acne benefit.

That’s because the main anti-acne ingredient in Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup is 0.5% salicylic acid which is available in tons of products. So there’s nothing special about this foundation if you don’t want to spend megabucks on 30 millilitres of foundation.

Another reason for using a salicylic acid moisturizer separate from your foundation is that you should not apply salicylic acid near your eyes or dry parts of the face where you don’t get acne.  It can cause eye irritation and skin dryness.

For combination skin, apply salicylic acid moisturizer on acne prone areas, then apply foundation.
