My Experience 
Wearing Clinique Superbalanced (09 Sand)
** I've used this foundation for over a year**  
This used to be my favourite foundation, up until last year. The first time i tried Clinique about 8 years ago in the UK. I thought it was an amazing product, but i didn't purchase it when i came back to Canada because at the time i did not wear foundation. When i started wearing foundation, i looked all over to try and get a foundation that matched my skintone; i think that was the hardest part. Foundations were either too light or too dark for me, it was very disappointing. I didn't think Clinique was available here, until i went to the mall one year and saw their kiosk in The Bay. I was so excited, i immediately went over to get matched- and they actually had a shade for me! A shade that matched me; it wasn't to light or too dark; it wasn't too punk or too yellow; it was just right.
The foundation itself is a nice consistency that is medium coverage but buildable. It's easy to apply with either your fingers, a sponge or a foundation brush; I've tried all three and prefer using a foundation brush. I find that this foundation is long lasting, stays put, and leaves me looking flawless. This does not dry out my skin, nor does it irritate my sensitive skin. I've fallen asleep with it on, and it never once gave me pimples or breakouts. The only thing i would change about this foundation is to add a pump instead of pouring the foundation out of the bottle. It's not super thick but it's not runny either, so when it's finishing i have to spend a bit more time trying to get the foundation out of the bottle. This isn't a major problem for me, because what i do is leave the foundation upside down so it's easier to get to.

Verdict
Re-purchase? Yes!
This has been a favourite foundation of mines. The only reason why i stopped using this foundation was to try other foundations to see if they are any better. I bought MAC studio fix fluid foundation because i heard so many good things about MAC Cosmetics, which i'll be doing a review on soon.
So which foundation do i think is BETTER? 
Check out my upcoming reviews (^__^)
