Comments about Clinique Almost Powder Makeup:

This used to be the only foundation I needed. I am very pleased with the coverage! It's lightweight. I am a little sad to say it doesn't last as long as I would like it to, but for the coverage and how nicely it matches my skin tone, it's a staple in my make up bag. I've only stopped using it, recently, because I've needed more coverage due to breakouts. However, once my breakouts are gone, I will go back to using this.

      Comments about Clinique Almost Powder Makeup:

      I purchased this product to use as a touch up. If too much is applied it settles into the winkles on my face. So if you have oily skin or just need to reduce the shine on your face, this one is for you.

        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.

        It's changed

        By Puddin'

        • Lightweight

        • Doesn't Stay On

        Best Uses

          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.

              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.
