                        Hi! Clinique's Blended Face Powder is a transparency loose powder. It is a great product to set your liquid foundation on a daily basis.
                        Clinique's Stay Matte Pressed Powder is a nice product to use as a touch up during the day. Many people use both products interchangeably, but described above is how they work best.
                        If you are looking for a powder foundation that provides more coverage, you may want to try Clinique's Beyond Perfecting Powder Foundation.
                        If you would like to try these formulas on your skin, we offer free color matching each day in all Ulta stores that carry a full line of Clinique product. We look forward to working with you. Have a great week!

                      I have olive skin and in the past I used this product as a bronzer during the summer. I can't remember if I used Transparency 4 or 5 as its been a little while now since I replenished it.
                      Can you recommend which # to get if I want it slightly darker than my current olive skin tone, and to use more as a bronzer, not for coverage as a powder?

                        Hi! Transparency #4 is nice for an olive skin tone. Transparency #5 was designed for more of a deep skin tone, and is quite a bit darker than #4. Knowing that you are describing your skin tone as olive, I suggest #4, as I believe #5 will be too dark based on the description of your skin. Thank you and have a wonderful week!

                        A:

                        Hi! Invisible Blend is designed to disappear on skin, no matter what the tone. It creates more of a natural matte finish that looks and feels lightweight on the skin. In all shades, this product adds coverage without adding much color, which is why we call it a transparent powder. Transparency #3 was designed for a moderately fair skin tone. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                        Hi! I suggest using transparency #3 based on your skin tone. I am sorry to hear about the sensitivity you are having with your skin, but I believe you will enjoy using Clinique. We allergy test everything and it is also fragrance free, so very safe for skin. Thank you for your interest and have a wonderful week!
