Full coverage but hydrating is not something that is easy to find in the foundation department. So when I stumbled upon this I was really excited yet skeptical. I was surprised in the best way when I tried the Even Better Refresh Hydrating & Repairing Makeup! It really does what it says and leaves my skin feeling plump and soft, and not even the tiniest bit dry after a full day of wear. The packaging is simple but easy to use. The texture is thinner than expected but has excellent spreadability and it’s super easy to blend. It sets to a satin type finish, and doesn’t cling to any dry or flaky patches. Definitely a winner!
I got a small sample of this from DJ and was expecting it to be pore clogging like most foundations but was so surprised to discover how light it felt while making my skin look so much better.  The texture and feel of this product is more like a CC cream than foundation - giving my skin but better look in the most awesome way.  Super easy to spread and little goes long way - usually I just take about size of a dot and dab it all over with finger tips - no sponge, no brush and still no problem blending it - and it really lasts till end of the day. Doesn't completely stop my nose from getting oily but definitely saves it from looking so bad.  Was also really happy that I found a shade to perfectly match my skin tone. I like to wear it as a light coverage but pretty sure it's buildable to medium if not more. While it's quite price, I am pretty sure the full size pack would last me months. Wish the SPF factor was bit higher though. 
I loved this foundation. I often stick to esteee lauder foundations but love trying out different ones as well and I loved the hydrating and repairing claims this clinique foundation made. This foundation really was quite hydrating, it didnt leave my skin feeling dry and the foundation did no go cakey which I hate. it felt nice and light to wear and did not add any extra oil to my skin. It lasted all day without going greasy and looked really natural while covering skin imperfections. it blends well, I just used my fingers but a great foundation blending brush would also work. It glides on nicely and disguised my fine lines and pores perfectly, giving me a much more youthful appearance, gotta love that. Its free from parabens and fragrance so is ideal for those with sensitive skin. With 27 shades its so easy to find a perfect colour match and I felt the price was good for the results it delivers. I would buy this product again and would highly recommend it.
This foundation caught my attention because it claims to be a full coverage hydrating foundation which is what I'm looking for as I have dry skin so most full coverage foundations are too dry on my skin. This foundation is easy to apply which blends out evenly to a medium coverage and is buildable to full coverage without looking cakey. The foundation dry out after few minutes and doesn't feel sticky or tacky on skin. After using it for a week, I can say that this foundation works very well on my dry skin, no flaking or creasing at all.
I picked up a sample of this at Myers recently. I normally use the even better but never been 100% happy but like alot of others I'm still on the hunt for the perfect foundation.  I have to say first up the colour match on me is much more closer to my skin tone and much more natural looking compared to the original even better.  It glided on the skin so nicely and then just disappeared into my skin. After a day of wearing this there were no signs of settling into my fine lines or my pores which can be a problem with alot of foundations Iv tried. The only thing I did find is that because I do have oily / combination the lasting power proberly not as good as the original. I might have to try it with a primer and see if that helps. But once Iv finished my old foundation I think I will splurge and purchase this one as the colour match to my skin was a winner for me.
