I'm a makeup artist and I work with this foundation quite a bit. It is incredible to see how it can cover a range of imperfections, from dark circles to blemishes. It's oil free and IT WILL NOT BREAK YOU OUT! I can't say that every Clinique foundation will guarantee that, but this one is great. It tends to be ideal for dry/combo to combo/oily but if you are feeling dry you can mix it with a gel moisturizer or an oil. You can use it just under the eyes or cover the entire face. A little goes a long way so do not over-apply! Also, I think this is applied best with a buffing brush.
I wear Creamwhip in the winter and Buttermilk in the summer. I have light/medium peachy olive skin.
