A few months back I posted a video reviewing Clinique’s Superfit Foundation. At the time, I forgot I had it until I dug it out of the depths of my makeup drawer. Turns out, I really love it! I’m almost finished with my bottle, and I’m planning to repurchase, however when I visited the Clinique website to read some of the reviews, I learned that Clinique had changed the formulation of the product leaving many consumers very unhappy.
The colors shades of the new formula have been said to be about two shades darker and have a very orange undertone. Other consumers noted the new formula has a heavier coverage, yet a more liquid consistency. When I visited the Clinique counter a few days ago, my sales associate told me Clinique is trying to discount or sell off all their “NEW” formulated Superfit makeup, in order to switch back to the original formula.
What I wonder is, why fix something if its not broken? It is clear that Clinique’s original formula was loved by many consumers. Its too bad that Clinique went through all the trouble of marketing and promoting the new formula, which most people ended up disliking. However, I’m happy to hear that the “old” Superfit may be making its way back to a Clinique counter near you.
If you are thinking about purchasing or repurchasing Clinique’s Superfit any time soon, I caution you: Be sure to ask your sales associate which formula you are buying, and double check our color match. It seems within the next few months Clinique will be making the swap, so be sure to know what your getting!
Have you heard any rumors of a switch back to the old formula? If so, leave a comment below.
