So yes this powder foundation is very close to my sheer matte pressed powder by clinique! Im not going to say it is a dupe for it but it does similar things for my skin in terms of coverage. I have it in translucent medium and its perfect...note my skin is tan/medium. Smooth application and also a fantastic range of protective features against UV light. I have used it mainly as sheer coverage but I believe you should be able to build it to a medium coverage. It has not broken me out as it is free of many baddies like parabens haha! Try it out! Plus packaging is ultra cute....orange & hot hot pink!
