I have been using Clinique powder for two years and it works great. I have found exactly the shade for me and it creates an invisible blend on my skin. I have combination skin with oily T section. I am of the opinion that there is no such powder, or I have not found one so that my skin would be perfect, that is, I would not shine after 8 hours. If i do start to look a little shiny, a handkerchief is the best way to deal with the shine on my skin.
I always apply the powder with a soft, fluffy brush and it becomes invisible on my face. This powder nicely paired with BB cream, it does not create stains and its durability is right for me.
After applying it in the morning,my face looks just as good in the evening. Although it has it's own colour, it does not effect the color of the foundation I use it with. I have used it on several foundations and it works well with them too.
The powder is efficient and does exactly what I need it to do. However, when it comes to the price in relation to the quality, let's say it could be better;) The powder comes with a brush that I do not use for this product but instead for applying a bronzer. Of course, there are cheaper powders that can give you similar results , but if you like to test a new product, why not. Cool, reasonably priced powder, Clinique is a good brand.
