Clinique Even better Foundation- pale shades?

Anyone got any? I bought it in alabaster a while back and threw half away- too orange after a while. But had a quick look at website and see they now do it in Linen and Cream Rose- which look paler. I won't buy without seeing in the flesh but wondered if anyone had used these shades and if they don't turn orange?

I'd always used Clinique foundations until they gradually phased out lots of the palest shades, and I still haven't found the perfect substitute- Bobbi Brown and Nars come closest but they still aren't 100% right in terms of coverage and shade.

I use the foundation and it is still the best one by far. My friend is very pale and she uses the other foundation by clinique which for the life of me I cannot remember but it comes in a glass bottle, sorry! It is worth going in for a consultation as they have re-launched alot of products.

Thanks- think you must mean the Super Balanced.
I used to use Repair Wear but they have dropped the 2 paler shades and the new serum RW is nowhere near the same and is too dark anyway.

I'm not that keen on Super B- looks a bit 'flat ' on my skin and I need something a tiny bit dewy but not too much or it just doesn't last- my skin is pretty normal.

I think I'll investigate the EB again and look at the new shades.

Thats the one! I know what you mean with super balance being abit flat compared to EB. Hope you find the right shade.

This is a very old thread! In case you managed to get on with a lighter shade, please post and let me know. Having the same issue with EB alabaster at the moment so would be keen to hear how you got on.
