Review : Clinique Almost Powder Makeup

Got this from swap from a fellow Girltalker.

Clinique Almost Powder Makeup in Fair

PRODUCT INFO from CLINIQUE:
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

WHAT I LIKE:
* 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)

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
* 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.

TIPS:
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.

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

RATING :
3.5 / 5

Swatch - taken with flash
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
