best coverage ever! I have been using it for years, and always thing I will try something new, and everytime I come back to this powder - - and I have tried everything else out there....I LOVE this product!
I have been using this in "Matte Honey" for over 15 years, definitely my HG of all my products! I dislike liquid foundations, and enjoy the convenience of powder (yes, I do my makeup in the car). Depending on how much you apply, you can have as much/little coverage as you want. I prefer full coverage to hide imperfections, and am able to achieve this using the sponge applicator it comes with. I apply it dry, as it can look cakey if applied with a wet sponge. I have combination skin, and just have to touch up once in the day, more in the summer (although I'm thinking of getting MAC Blot to keep my shine at bay, instead). I use a primer to help it stay put all day. This shade gives me a natural-looking warm honey/golden colour (hence the name, I guess!). The case has never broken on me, nor the product. I suppose my only compaint is that once you hit the bottom of the pan it is difficult to get product from around the ring. I have ventured and tried other brands over the years (MAC Studiofix, Lancome, Estee), but always come back to this. I try to buy when Clinique has GWP so I can get little goodies. This is my FIRST review, so I hope I helped!
I am a big fan of Clinique MU (although I hate their skincare)..this is a HG product of mine, I don't leave the house without it! I use a regular,liquid foundation but have combination skin, so my cheeks and t-zone tend to get a little shiny as the day goes on. This powder is perfect for applying after blotting..creates a very smooth,natural look, disguises redness, and does not irritate my sensitive skin. The compact is pretty slim and handy, and comes with a mirror for easy application. This powder creates a very "finished", elegant (and not cakey or orange!) look when applied over regular foundation. I use 07 Matte Neutral.
This is quite good.. i've got oily skin and i wear this in the summer without any problems. It covers up flaws, but still looks really natural, though if you use the sponge, it can cake up a little. Theres better stuff out there but for the price, i think it does a good job. The colours aren't that great so only buy this if you find your exact colour match. I also realised this does get a little bit darker throughout the day, but for me, it just gives me more colour and it's like it settles after a while to look even better. Overall i like this, but it's not the best out there.
I used to use Lancome Dual Finish, but I decided to switch after I found out that Lancome's parent company allows animal testing. So I was looking for a new powder and I decided to try Clinique, because they do not test on animals, and I already owned (and liked) their blush and lip gloss. I tried this on at the makeup counter and it turned my skin sunburn-esque red. It was so weird; I've never had such a crazy reaction to makeup before. Prior to, I didn't even know I had "sensitive" skin. Even the sales girl was shocked because she said she never saw anyone react to the powder like that before. Needless to say, I passed on the Superpowder Double Face and opted for Estee Lauder's Double Matte, instead.
For reference, I'm an AAB with NC35/C4 coloring and dark hair and eyes. I used this years ago as my first powder foundation... would not buy again. Color selection is more suited to Caucasians, and not Asians as this still went pink on me. I also found the coverage too light and not typical of a true powder foundation.
I saw a close friend of mine had this and the powder does look natural on her and i did ask her if this control oil well and i remember she told me it did. So i went and brought one to use. It was actually quite gd. It control my oil very well and i like that it does look natural on me but it also feel alittle heavy on my skin, like my skin couldn't breathe...but the packaging suck big time...i had this many moon ago so i didn't know if Clinique change the package or not but once i drop this at work while touch up and it crack, damn! I remember the powder crack as well....nevertheless i didn't had gd experience with Clinique so never try their product anymore.
I love this, my friend bought it for me and I've used it ever since (2 yrs ago)!! It's a great on the go powder, love the finish it leaves. It just rubs off kind of easily and I feel I have to keep reapplying it all day.
I will use this product until they stop making it! I use the matte neutral and it covers flawlessly but never looks like makeup. It's incredible.
This powder makes my face look flawless in photos. It looks very natural and is easy to apply.
