Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus All -Smooth Makeup SPF 15

Just in time for cooler weather Clinique is bringing out a new foundation - Repairwear Laser Focus All Smooth Makeup SPF 15. And yes that is one very long name.  The foundation incorporates the technology  of their  serum of  similar name.

This is a moisturizing, light to medium coverage foundation. Best for normal to dry skin. It  looks great on   and smoothes nicely as promised and gives skin a dewy look and feel.( Which is why it doesn't work so well for the oily skinned). Coverage, I think, is more medium than light. It covers pretty well.

The formula is said not only to help fight new UV damage but to repair past damage with Ultrasomes that gradually help skin damage. There are several ingredients with very long names that help plump skin and  Murumuru seed butter and Vitamin E for moisture.

While it's too dewy for my skin and I can't use anything like Murumuru Butter on my face, I like the finish of this and  all the good for skin ingredients. I've always been a big fan of Clinique's foundations. They do  some of the best  and at good price points. Acne Solutions is staple all summer and last winter I wore Even Better almost every day. 

Repairwear Laser Focus All Smooth Makeup SPF 15 is on sale now at Nordstrom for $ 32.50 and comes in 12 shades. All outlets will have it in September.

I use the Clinique Redness Solution Foundation. With that and my sunscreen underneath it, I swear that I glow in the dark from all the zinc oxide on my skin.

Ever tried L'Oréal's true match? It is drugstore and inexpensive but works very well for me on top of all of the zinc oxide in my sunscreen. I don't know how comfortable it is for oily skin.

Hi Chatchien,
I have tried True Match. It was good with my skin but a slightly thinner fornula/lighter coverage than I usually go for. It looked good though on and I agree, nice for the price.

If you have used the original Repair Wear foundation, you will be vastly disappointed with this new, watery version. Also, the shades do not match exactly. It does not cover, does not have that moist, brightness and is a total waste of money. If you want makeup of this calibre, go to Walgreen's and spend $12. I am so disgusted with Clinique. I finally found my perfect shade and foundation and they discontinue it!!!

Hi Anon,
I had never used the original Clinique one so I can't compare. Reformulations can go well or bad. Thanks for your input. It's never fun when your shade is DC'd. Hope you find another that works for you.
