Can longwear foundation be good for skin?
(Hint: Yes.)

Whether it’s for long days, hard days, gym days (and the occasional late night)—finding the best longwear foundation that won’t oxidize can be challenging enough. But finding one that’s actually good for skin? Enter Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation. With 24-hour, oxidation-proof wear and a skincare-powered formula, this Clinique foundation stays flawless around the clock—all while working hard to visibly improve skin.

The skincare secret is in the serum foundation—or we should say, the three serum technology. This good-for-skin foundation is designed with powerhouses like UP302 + vitamin C to help target the look of dark spots and restore radiance. Additionally, salicylic acid helps to support cell turnover and make texture look smoother, while hyaluronic acid helps to plump fine, dry lines. The result: even better-looking bare skin. Does this mean you can finally fall asleep in your makeup? We’ll leave that up to you.


If the skincare ingredients work hard, the makeup works even harder. 91% of women who tried it said the color stayed true throughout the day.* It’s beautifully buildable, letting you layer on more drama with every swipe. Turn up the volume with a bold favorite like High Impact Mascara.

Complete the look with Clinique Pop Plush Creamy Lip Gloss.

And with full coverage in a matte finish that’s built to last 24 hours, it’s no wonder Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation has become a red carpet favorite, from the Oscars to Cannes.

Plus, with mineral SPF 25, our Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation does more than perfect—it helps protect skin from sun damage.
