I've never used the foundation you're using but this one I can guaranteed will have your face break free and looking perfect. I had large pores and break outs every day and now, thanks to this foundation and the serum in the line I had almost perfect skin!!

It definitely does cover up redness. It covered up the redness I have on my cheeks and forehead. I have combination to oily skin and this foundation kept me matte all day.

Question
What coverage does this foundation give?
Is this foundation really a medium coverage that can be built up to full coverage? Lots of reviews are saying it is full but others say it is sheer. This is very important because I have a lot of redness and acne scars that need to be covered.

It's light to medium coverage, it's not full unless you have perfect skin. I have acne and hypopigmentation and it doesn't cover unless I go back over it with more foundation. I don't like using concealer because it tends to cake up my face, so I use more foundation and it conceals pretty well the second time and it doesn't cake.

This has a medium coverage I would say. I also have acne and was looking for something with coverage but not too heavy. I really like this formula. It also helps minimize my pores and makes my skin look smoother. I don't really build it up much because I am happy with the first coverage. It also helps if you use a foundation brush to put it on. The girl in the store helped me put it on with the Sephora Pro foundation brush.

I don't think so. I have laugh lines and this foundation doesn't hide them very well.

I went to my local Sephora and had an IQ skin test. They place a little hand held detector up to your face and neck. it will then suggest the best color/tone for your skin from a wide range of brands. Mine was spot on! Definitely worth it!

I can't answer your question about what shade you need, but I can say that this is probably not the best replacement for Repairwear foundation. This is labeled as being for more oily skin types, while the Repairwear is more for dry skin. I have oily skin and tried this, and found it to be too drying for even my very-oily skin. I see from Clinique's website that their Supermoisture Makeup and Continuous Coverage are geared toward more dry skin. Their new Even Better Compact makeup is supposed to work for dry skin as well. I hope that's all clear and helps!

Here are the ingredients: Isosdodecane, Water, Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat., Polymethyl Methacrylate, Polyethylene, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Glyceryl Dilaurate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Polysilicone-11, Laminaria Saccharina Extract, Witch Hazel, PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Savlia Sclarea (Clary) Extract, Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspoylmer, Padina Pavonica Thallus Extract, Salicylic Acid, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Propylene Carbonate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caffeine, Tromethamine, Sodium Chloride, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Boron Nitrade, Glycerin, Silica, Methicone, Laureth-7, Tetradsodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides

If you don't know how to spot the silicones, look for ingredients with the words silicone, methicone, and siloxane. As you can see some of the ingredients in this product have those words.

On the bright side after reading the ingredients this product does not contain parabens or sulfates and since it is fragrance free it greatly reduces the chances of having phthalates.
