can't leave the house without this in my handbag - perfect for de-shining my t-zone throughout the day!

I use this as well as the Clarins Powder Compact. I don't see much of a difference between the two. This one smells a lot better to me. UPDATE: This "shine stopper" doesn't stop any shine on my face. Infact, I look like a grease ball toward the middle of the day. And FYI, they discontinued the Powder Compact.

I guess this has received mixed reviews, but I quite like it. I have it in "beige transparent" and although my skin is not overly shiny, this is a good way to get a matte, even complexion without using foundation. I love the packaging, but then I tend to like all Clarins packaging... The perfume-y smell is not great, but there is something mildly comforting about it -- i.e., you know it's on (and working!).

I like this product! I have it in Translucent and it sets nicely for me. The colour I see is pretty much the colour that goes on. My skin feels soft after putting this on...love that! I like the pouch it comes in too.

I received this in a swap, so I cannot vouch for the price of this. In fact, when I buy another one, I'll edit this review to reflect that. I LOVE the packaging of this powder ! Few oil/shine/mattifying products work on me beyond a few hours. FYI, I'm "blessed" with not only cystic acne, but incredibly oily skin (I guess an upside to this would be a reduced chance of getting wrinkles :P), and this stuff has very good staying power. I wear this over my new HG foundation, Diorskin Icone photo perfect makeup, and my skin looks flawless. This stuff is so smooth and finely-milled. You can tell that this is talc-free. This powder is silky smooth to the touch.
If you're near a Clarins counter anytime soon, go over and test this stuff to see what I mean. If this stuff ends up being expensive, I'm still going to buy it, because it's definitely worth the money !! Finally, a powder that works and lives up to its stellar and classy packaging !
This is my first time ever trying Clarins, and boy, am I impressed !!

This product has been available in Europe for a couple of years now. I'm just decluttering all my make up and found it buried at the bottom of a box , looking forlorn. ie Unused.
I have shade 10 - 'Beige Transparent' Translucent.
Well if you're super pale like I am right now, there is nothing translucent about this powder. They should have called it Orange Pink. But then it wouldn't have sold.
So not only does this change the colour of my foundation, it does, as the reviewer below pointed out, make your skin look horrible.

This is the new addition to Clarins' line of powders. It is a transluscent compact powder that is supposed to absorb oil and everything about it sucks.
The oil-control ability is average- it is actually good but it makes your complexion ugly. It emphasizes my pores, dries up my skin and gives the lurid corpse look. And my skin itch big time.
Clarins regular compact powder is the best there ever is. And this new addition is a mistake!!!

This is one product that I will never ever even think twice of repurchasing even if the world does not produce anymore compact powders! It does not control oil, oxidizes on me, and clogged my pores. Bleah!

I would not say this is the best mattifying powder, but its certainly not the worst. My gripes with this are that it has TALC, doesn't really mattify for very long, and it is too pink for my skin tone, and has a strong scent--sort of like a stale perfume. I also wish it had some SPF. Oh, and its expensive, too.

This is the least cake-y or chalk-y powder I've ever tried, and I've tried my share as I work in the field (let's see - superior to any pressed, loose, or foundation powder from Lancome, Lise Watier, Biotherm, Bare Escentuals, Revlon, Covergirl, Loreal, Rimmel, Maybelline, Almay, Dermablend.....). Gives a soft-focus finish each time whether or not oil has been blotted, on a bare or a made-up face. For me, there is no obvious smell or color - I actually use it on customers who have too much shine on their face to take their passport photos in a neighboring department, from pale to very very dark skin. For everyday use though, the translucent color that it comes in may only be appropriate for fair, light, or medium skins. I almost always apply with a powder brush although in a pinch the sponge it comes with seems to work just as well.

I tried this today and ended up purchasing. I hate, hate, hate liquid foundation! I usually wear powder foundation, but lately even that isn't enough for my oily skin. My overall color and texture of my skin is in good condition, with the exception of the oil spill on my face. This applied over my concealer and my skin looked amazing! With a little blush I was good to go. Will continue to use and see if I feel different in a week or so. I had been using the Jane Iredale primer, but I didn't like it for touch-ups. This is a bit pricey, but if it is worth it, I might repurchase.
** update** this was bad. Bad stuff...I ended up breaking out to one of the natural ingredients. Returned and then ran fay away.

This doesn't do anything for me except making me look real dark and oilier than usual.............i can't believe something from clarins is so crappy........i've tried it for several days hoping that it will work but it just doesn't...........i end up getting back to blot powder from mac.........i dun think i'll ever try anything other powder for oil controlling.........stupid me..........

It is a very nice product. I love it. It really control my shiny face. I recommend it to whoever got an oily face. Should try this!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Black
very natural and matt.. makes my makeup more lasting and i don't have to touch up as often.. best if u use it with the truly matt foundation, results will be even better.. will definately continue to buy it :)

Disappointing product from Clarins. Bad, strong scent, average oil-controlling capabilities, awkward packaging, and unflattering pink tone. Apparently it's translucent, which was certainly not true on my pale yellow-toned skin. I had horrible, obvious pink patches where the powder went! The powder comes in a weird small oval that is difficult to handle. The mirror is small and the hinges are made so it's tricky to even look in it. It went back ASAP! CoverFx matte powder is far superior.
