            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

                        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. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
