        Makes my skin look silky and smooth! Love it so much. The only down side is I have to be careful in the under eye area because it can make my fine lines there stand out a bit more.

            Comments about Clinique Blended Face Powder and Brush:

            I went into the store looking for a loose powder that was translucent. I preferred a higher end brand and wasn't wanting to look in the drugstore makeup section. I saw one and they were out of stock. A sales woman came up to me and asked if I needed help. I told her what I was looking for and she recommended me this product. Told me it was translucent- it clearly was not but I went with it hoping it would be light enough for my fair skin. It is not and I am very disappointed that this woman either didn't know what translucent powder is or was more concerned with a sale than what I was actually looking for. I only came into Ilya because I had a gift card.

              I'm very pale, and this powder is supposed to be translucent, but it actually oxidizes to a darker color. It also cakes up and settles into lines.

                    • Q:

                      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!

                      What is the difference between invisible and Transparency #3? Also, if it is invisible or transparent, why then do you say it adds coverage? That makes zero sense.

                        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!
