Light and natural with medium coverage that worked well for my dry skin before this fine quality pressed powder turned it into the sahara. I really liked the finish the glow the lasting power, but most of all the natural look. I will definitely try again come spring but for now, the tighness it actually painful. I never had much success with mineral foundations and found them way too drying so this may be the factor in my response to Almost Powder Makeup. Disappointed.
This was my makeup stable for a long long time. However, I have since realised that the coverage is not enough for my oily, blotchy skin. Plus, I had to carry this everywhere for top ups as oil came through.
I have since swapped to Clinique even better foundation, which is even better! I will always have a little pot of this to mattify my chin when necessary though.
I would say this would be excellent for people with very good skin that want a very light natural look, but not so good if you suffer from blemishes/blotchiness like me.
I like the compact and the brush that comes with it.
This powder gives you sheer coverage when used alone, but I use it as finishing powder over foundation also, and it feels good.
When I apply it, there is no sign of oil in my skin, but after some hours, when applyed alone, oil does appear. It has SPF15. My color is 04 Ė Neutral MF/M. For reference, Iím NC30, and this is a perfect match for my skin. Looks very natural.
If overdone, can look very very powdery.
Iíve been using it for quite a long time now and I have not reached the pan yet.
Will repurchase again.
Pros: Sheer, good for people like me who like light sheer makeup aka younger teens, natural converage
Cons: NO OIL CONTROL...In 3-4 hours after application in the morning you can start to see the makeup sweating off my face...so if you're very oil like me this is not the way to go
Pink undertones-I'm asian so I need yellow-untertones makeup..the pink undertones makes this not blend well with my skin
So in short I'm not going to buy this again. It's rather expensive and there's really nothing good for me here other than the natural looking converage....I wear powder for oil control and this gives none...it has horrible staying power..and the color selection is limited and blah!
Almost Powder Makeup SPF 15 has a buttery smooth texture and blends to a seamless satin-matte finish with a hint of sparkling shine. I have pretty dry kin, it looks dull after applying on my face. So I would not recommend this to very dry skin type.
It does have sheer to medium coverage like most mineral foundation does. But it does not last whole day. You have to touch up during the day if you want your face look same throughout the day. The is pressed powder type foundation. it is easy to carry and re-apply. but I am not recommend this to ones wishing a full coverage.
You get brilliant sun protection from 13% titanium dioxide (in addition, thereís a synthetic sunscreen active, something you donít typically see in a product being sold as mineral makeup).
Almost all eight shades are soft and neutral; Deep Honey may be to orange for some skin tones, while Deep is slightly ash, probably due to the amount of titanium dioxide. Deep Golden is best for tan skin tones, which is about as dark as the shade range goes. I am NC 20 - 25 , I found medium is a bit darker for me, but still wearable. Neutral is bit too warm with red/pink undertone. Light is the best match so far.
Oh my goodness, it's my best new most favourite foundation ever.
I have really, really, really oily skin. I was tired of looking like an oil well all day so I went to Sephora looking for a powder foundation and I tried this one from Clinique because I was desperate to try anything and this was less expensive than other brands.
Well, I tell you, I've never looked this good. The oil is soaked right up, and my fair skin has a lovely alabaster colour to it with this powder on; I look exactly the way I always wanted to look.
If you're a gushing oil well like me, do try this powder. I reapply at lunch time, I just blot and reapply, it doesn't cake and ball up like other powders do.
Like I said, my newest most fave foundation.
I wanted to use a powder foundation during the hotter months and after a very disappointing experience with Bare Esscentuals foundation and the fact that I'd never been disappointed by a Clinique foundation, decided to try this.
It comes with a sponge applicator and large compact mirror - excellent qualty packaging. The foundation gives quite a sheer, slightly "soft focus" coverage. I would use this again, but to make this product better for me, I would have preferred a little more coverage and a less matte finish.
I LOVE THIS POWDER! I don't have a lot of acne, so it is very light. I don't need something heavy. Even though it feels light though, it gives a lot of coverage. I feel airbrushed when I wear it. It just sweeps right over any imperfections I may have. It stays on for the whole day. I just love it and will buy it again when I run out!!!!
This product is great for the oily skinned ladies that want medium coverage and a natural look. It holds up well and covers pretty well, although you need to pair this with a concealer for any significant flaws. There are a few things I don't "love" about this powder. One, is that it looks super powdery after applying it, which does tone down after an hour or two. But also, when you apply your shadow, blush, etc., this foundation doesn't have the capability of "holding" onto them, because it is a powder, so your other products end up coming off somewhat easily. One more thing, it doesn't seem to go well with certain types of concealers, like stick concealers, or heavy concealers, it can cake up. So you just have to play around and see what works. But overall, this is a life saver if you are having difficulties with your skin, because it has never broken me out, and is good for super sensitive skin, so you know you can count on it being a gentle option. I recommend it.
I have only tried this for a few days, but I love it so far.
I find the coverage moderate enough that it covers up redness and blemishes quite well - I only wear it with a small amount of concealer underneath (note: I have relatively good skin, slight blemishes on chin most of the time). It has quite a natural matte finish when first applied (not too over the top powdery) and as I have a semi oily t-zone it looks flawless towards lunchtime.
I have the colour Light with is Neutral yellow-toned which I a pretty good match for me and the yellow cancels out all my redness.
The packaging is functional - LOVE the mirror and snap lock closure. Perfect for putting in my bag to take with me.
***ADDED: Ick! The colour changed over the course of the day - it went SO dark that by the end of the day I looked ridiculous! Took back for refund***
