I am half Chinese and European and its impossible to find foundation that matches my skin colour as I have light/medium olive european tone, whilst shade 04 neutral does not match 100% it is the closest match I have found and besides it makes my skin look amazing! I have combo skin with a oily t zone but is normal everywhere else however this leaves my skin looking dewy not oily, however when first applied it looks a bit cakey but 30mins later my skin is louminous, coverage is buildable and I prefer to use it with my estee lauder kabuki and build up the coverage rather than using the sponge unless I am out then I'll use the sponge to touch up. Whilst it does have a small amount of shimmer in it, it does not make u sparkle like bare minerals does. I love the fact it has an spf 15 in it, however if you have really oily skin this might not be the best foundation for you. Staying power is ok but like any foundation on a oily t zone I need to retouch few hrs (4-6) or so on my t zone. Packaging is fantastic, nice and slim which is good to fit in your clutch on a night out. The only reason why I took a lippy off is because it is expensive at $49 Australian. Whilst this is expensive I would definatley buy it again because of how good it makes my skin look, I hope this never discontinues!
This powder was just okay. It's nice as a finishing powder but it definitely looks flaky if your skin is a little dry. So moisturizing or using some type of actual foundation is a must. The woman at the counter picked my shade out for me and she was COMPLETELY off. I have no idea what she was thinking. I think she gave me the lightest color. I look like a ghost! But otherwise, I could see this being a decent makeup setter.
I havent tried a lot of powder because I love liquid foundation. But i do love it in the summer because it seems light but does cover the redness of acne. When I wear it I can barely feel that im wearing it. The packaging is great because it comes with an applicator in a compact with a big mirror. It is great for girls who are young if they start to get acne because it dosent cause any either and you cant tell if someone is wearing it. Dont apply a lot of it though because it can give you a caked on look. It is a great powder :)
I have used this consistently since it was first released several years ago. Non-cakey, natural coverage, cannot feel on skin, photographs well, fragrance-free!!
I received this as a birthday gift along with the Moisture Sheer Tint TM from my mom. I was perfectly happy with my old TM/Powder combination (Hard Candy TM and Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Powder), but I guess I never realized what I was missing!!! I've usually just stuck to drugstore stuff, but this blows whatever I've used out of the water.
I have the colour 02 Neutral Fair. I use the sponge it comes with, and stroke it on. It goes on a tad bit too dark, but it adjusts after a few minutes. I was surprised at the amount of coverage it has! It's very good! It evens out all my redness and shine and leaves me with clear-looking skin. I'm serious. This combination makes me look like I have the perfect skin (though when I wash it off, it becomes obvious I don't), without making it look like I'm wearing anything! And neither are breaking me out.
I used this on a trip to Six Flags the other day, and it lasted all day, through sweat and water and soda (unfortunate accidents) and rain. I came home with a perfect-looking face. I'm so excited about this! This replaces my old HG! :-)
Kind of overpriced at £20 i think - however I find it better than a lose powder, and i like the packaging. You cannot tell you are wearing any powder, but it might be aggravating my blemishes
Almost powder is a wonderful powder foundation. I have sensitive combo skin that is prone to breakouts. I use a powder brush with this for a light layer and it provides great coverage. It doesn't clog my pores or cause any irritation. It feels light on your skin. I have to blot around the middle of the day, which is normal for me. After I apply this foundation, I notice that within minutes it melts into my skin and looks perfect. It almost looks like I've applied liquid foundation and powder. I am NC40 and I wear this in Deep-a perfect match.
I love this powder I use to on top of my studio fix and its beautiful! I apply with a powder brush and it looks like it literally absorbs all the oil in my face but its comfortable to wear. Only downside to this is that its $23 bucks lol but worth it:)
I love this product, its so easy to apply has great coverage and looks really natural. love it.
I'm trialling a tinted moisturiser plus powder over the winter months when my skin is a lot dryer and this does not disappoint and I'm pleasantly surprised by how good this powder looks and feels. It provides just enough coverage to cover my acne scars and pores and smooths over the few lines I have without looking cakey. My skin looks so much younger, dewy and light. It feels like nothing and just melts into the skin without me having to buff. I just lightly brush this on with a big powder brush. I might just carry on using this over summer as long as it can cope with my oily T-zone and the humidity by then. I have no idea how I missed out on this for so long. Well done Clinique!
