Review : Clinique Almost Powder Makeup

Got this from swap from a fellow Girltalker.

Clinique Almost Powder Makeup in Fair

More than minerals. Skin looks, acts happier. Long-wear formula helps keep pores out of trouble. Antioxidants and SPF protect skin. This natural, perfecting “no-makeup” makeup is so lightweight, you’ll never even feel it. So foolproof, you can apply it with a sponge, a brush-and almost with your eyes closed. For all skin types. Sheer to moderate coverage.

RETAIL PRICE: Around Php 1,500++. Will verify the price.

WEIGHT : 10 grams

SHADES : Available in 8 shades.
> Fair
> Neutral fair
> Light
> Neutral
> Medium
> Deep
> Deep honey
> Deep gold

* love the green, thin compact!
* powder has a fine, smooth texture
* glides like silk on the skin
* feels lightweight
* its Clinique - guaranteed mild!
* unscented
* has SPF 15
* average oil control (3-4 hrs)

* shade is a kinda light on me but this is also great as a highlight powder.
* ordinary powder puffs doesn't fit into the compact
* powder has sheer coverage. Does not cover imperfections.

Since the powder is a bit light for my skintone instead of using a puff, I just use my Everyday Minerals long handled Kabuki brush. I swirl the brush on the powder, tap the excess and apply sparingly on my face.

Maybe I'll just finish this one up, but will not repurchase. There are other inexpensive powders that work just the same.

3.5 / 5

I didn't blend the powder so that you can see the color.

Till next time,

awww this post brought me back to my college years, I love the CLinique Almost Powder makeup for touchups! But of course, the oil control isn't that good and who cares? I have dry skin anyways :D :D :D
