Clinique Superbalanced Silk Foundation

Clinique  adds to their Superbalanced Foundation line with new Superbalanced Silk Foundation , a nice addition to an already solid foundation selection.

Superbalanced Silk differs from the original in that it has SPF( 15) and is for dry combination to oily , where the other wasn't recommended for oily skins and is semi matte .

The coverage here is  medium-full and slightly buildable. It feels good on skin, lightweight, soft and looks good on, covering light spots and perfecting. This is supposed to be long wear and it lives up to that.  I got all day wear into the evening aside from T Zone oil. It looked  quite good at 6PM after an 8AM application.

It is semi- matte, but less matte than I expected and does allow oil breakthrough in the T Zone a bit quicker than I like and overall a slightly dewy finish. I feel like this isn't a good pick for those who are truly oily but combo and slightly dry should do great with it. Come Winter when my oil slows up a bit this will go into the foundation rotation  and I think it will work well. Right now my skin is in oil overdrive.

The SPF 15 is both chemical and physical and it has very little fragrance.  Shade shown is 02 Silk Shell which is pretty light ( the 2nd lightest color) , a bit more so than it's reading in my images.

Clinique Superbalanced Silk Foundation  is $ 25 and comes in 20 shades.
