    Always love Clinique but struggling to find something light for summer. The color I bought is great for summer, sun kissed skin. This would be much better during colder months.

      Comments about Clinique Almost Powder Makeup:

      For the record: more than the packaging has changed concerning this product. For starters, the SPF has been taken out. For another thing, I bought a new one and compared the ingredient list on the back to the ingredient list on the back of a new one and one of the main ingredients was changed and replaced with a new one. There has been so much confusion for those of us who have purchased this over the years. It *has* been changed, however, I gave it two stars because it does still slip on effortlessly and covers well. Just be aware, if you have used this product for years and are just now buying a new compact, it is not the same. I really wish cosmetic companies would remain true to their loyal customers and not discontinue or "tweak" their current formula; maybe then, they wouldn't lose a faithful customer.

                  Comments about Clinique Almost Powder Makeup:

                  I've spent hundreds of dollars on foundations and powders for my ever changing face. The older I get my face seems to change texture. I can't wear foundation of any kind with out it wearing off my face in an oil slick causing break outs. Or the colors are never a match. Powders, expensive and generic make my face feel tight and uncomfortable, again not providing a good color match. I have large pores, redness all over and am acne prone in my T-Zone area. A co-worker was wearing the Almost powder by Clinic. Her face was glowing after a long shift at work. Her makeup flawless. She told me to give Clinic a try. The best decision I've made. You can apply this liberally for a lightweight coverage or you can build with this to get medium to full coverage. All the redness in my face was covered perfectly. Acne has deminished and no new breakouts. The color match is perfect. It feels light weight with out the the tighness of a powder but finishes like a foundation through out the day. It's price point may be higher than drug store. I'd say save the money you'd spend on drug store foundations and powders and get this instead. Clinic almost powder will make me feel confident in the summer.

                    Hi! I see that the packaging has been changed for this powder and also noticed it is not specifying that it contains SPF. Has the powder itself been reformulated? I have certain allergies (to bismuth oxychloride), and would like to make sure it has not been added. Thank you

                  • Q:

                    I am using even better foundation in the linen shade and I love it, I feel that shade matches well. However throughout the day I noticed my skin was very oily and I rarely have time to address my looks at work (I'm a nurse). I began using superpowder double face makeup in matte ivory and noticed the undertone is much too pink for my face. It also looks terrible if my skin is dry anywhere as it flakes off.

                    I'm wondering if this would be a better fit for me in terms of a buildable foundation that will last throughout a 12 hour day. I'm also wondering which color would match best if the linen shade of even better works for me.

                    Thank you!

                      Hi! Neutral Fair may be a nice shade for you in this formula. In order to guarantee that it lays on the skin well, I suggest using Clarifying Lotion twice a day. It is a liquid exfoliating agent. You could also try using a manual exfoliating agent such as Cliniques 7 day scrub. If it is convenient for you, you may want to try some of these products in store. We offer free color matching and complimentary sampling each day at all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product. Thank you for for your question and your interest in Clinique.

                      A:

                      Hi! Fair is probably a nice shade for you based on what you are describing. This powder will not dry your skin, but it is will offer a matte finish, just like any powder will do on the skin. If you are looking for something with a glow, you may want to look into a liquid foundation. I suggest trying something like Clinique's Moisture Surge CC Cream if you are looking for something a bit more dewy for your dry skin. Thank you for your question and have a great day!

                      Hi! Many use this product as a foundation, while others use it as a powder for touch ups. If you have more mature skin, I suggest using a liquid foundation with a light transparency loose powder on top. You may want to try Clinique's Blended Face Powder to set your liquid foundation.
