Alternative to Clinique Almost Make-up?

(6 Posts)

Have just discovered that almost make-up was discontinued...2 years ago!! I've been using this off and on for many years, but for the last year I've used it almost daily. I'd stocked up in the US a few years ago which is why I've only just discovered it's not available!

Anyway just wondering if anyone had found a good replacement? I've tried Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturiser and the new cc cream as alternatives but they're not the same sad. The moisturiser gives a powdery finish whereas almost make-up just gave a smooth sheer finish IYKWIM.

Any other suggestions? I don't want to keep buying new ones to try as it will get expensive! And don't have alot of free time to get into a department store to try a few out. One option I have thought about is Liz Earle tinted moisturiser? Any advice very welcome!

I never found a great alternative, like you was really annoyed hen it was discontinued! I have been using Boots no7 tinted moisturiser and they also do an almost foundation product which I'm going to give a try

Elemis have just brought out a tinted version of their Hydra Floral - you could ask for a sample at one of their stores

Body Shop BB cream gave me the same effect as the Clinique almost make up. Go a shade darker than you usually would - its shades are quite pale.
