Most Helpful Positive Review By far the best face powder I've used
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.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's changed
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.

This powder has been a staple of mine for years! I get a lot of compliments that my skin looks natural and clear because of this product. Please never discontinue it!!
A gorgeous powder foundation
Anad from Colorado
Every few years, my skin goes through a change and I find my foundation collection is no longer serving me well...now, at 61, another shift, which has surprised me because the condition of my skin is pretty good...thank you skincare routine! I don't need a lot of coverage, more of a polished look, and all my foundations were looking heavy...a bit cakey, settling into lines and pores.
So, I tossed everything out...all my BareMinerals, Perricone, Lancome, Bobbie Brown, etc. Only kept my Kosas and Chanel Ultra Le Teinte Velvet. That left me with some need for a powder foundation and a tinted moisturizer. I remembered that I used this powder back in my early 40s and loved it, so on a whim, I picked it up at Ulta and have fallen in love again. The color neutral is just perfect for my light/medium skin. Unlike BM, this does not require tons of buffing...it is super fast to apply...very forgiving. I would say the coverage is light to low medium, which is what I want. The powder itself is almost creamy, and it leaves the skin perfected. No cakiness, minimal settling into lines and pores, and I am pretty impressed with the staying power when used with Hourglass Mineral Veil. When it does start to fade, after about 6-7 hours, it does not look patchy or dry. In fact, its super easy to do a quick touch-up. It just seems to meld with the skin. My Hourglass bronzer and blush apply beautifully...
This is perfect for mature skin if you want something fast, weightless and skin smoothing. I hope they never discontinue it!!
Love this product
Sandy from Queensbury, NY
I love this product. It's very easy to use and lasts a long time. I've been wearing for many years and will continue to do so.

Easy to apply. Looks natural and lasts all day.
Favorite ever, so perfect
Bri from Concord
This is my absolute favorite I use to wear liquid foundation now I don't even need it because this stuff makes you look like you're not even wearing any and it covers scars and red spots without looking cakey. I am never using another product for foundation again this is the best stuff ever
I will continue to use this
AR Hippie Chick from Arkansas
I use this over tinted sunscreen for very nice, soft & natural looking medium coverage.
ABC from Connecticut
I thought this was going to be a translucent powder with some tint but boy I was wrong. I put the powder on and looked gray. Women with melanin, do not bother with this product unless you're trying to look sick. The powder was soft, I'll give it that. But it's going back to the store.
Goes on smooth and covers nicely
Candy from Indiana
Covers well! Looks like a flawless finish powder
Paging nurse cutie from South Texas
I have the kind of skin where I need extra makeup for the "no makeup makeup look" and this powder surprised me! It finishes like a flawless powder but covers and I'm really loving it! I wore it from 0530-2030 on my shift at the hospital and performed well, didn't really disappear on my mask and when I finally saw myself before my shower at 9pm I wasn't disappointed on the performance. Would recommend! It's not full coverage, it's buildable but it's gonna be my go to all summer! Especially cause you can't get away with heavy foundation everyAfternoon in hot Texas.
Daphne from Idaho
This powder is simply perfection, the coverage and weight makes you feel flawless as if you have no makeup on!
Daphne from Idaho
Everything about this updated compact is simple perfection. I loved the last version but this is the best coverage in powder I have come across.
Love this makeup!
Erica from Statesville NC
I apply primer then this makeup powder over it and it gives me enough coverage to wear it like that but on special occasions or days I want full coverage I apply it with a brush over top of my foundation. It's a beautiful flawless smooth finish.
Love the quality & the price!!!
Hannah from Coeur D'Alene, ID
I am in love! This product has such a soft feel, wonderful coverage & not drying. I have used many different powder foundations on the high & low end scale, this one is my favorite by far! It has a light but also buildable coverage.
K.M. from Not Here
No. Clumps in one place, difficult to blend, chalky, drying , and accentuates lines. Stick to Clinique Superpowder foundation for far superior results!
Perfect powder foundation
Ram from Texas
This is great for coverage. Not too heavy. It has SPF, which I love!
Absolutely love it.
Glambag from Lexington GA
What a great powder foundation. With a fluffy brush, pounce this wonderful powder over your face.
Defentily buying again
Barb from doyline
Every day make up its so much easier than liquid foundation and its full coverage
Just what I wanted.
Feeling young from Great Falls, MT
After years of wearing only mascara and eyeliner, I decided I needed something to even out the skin tones of my aging skin. This does the trick. I don't look or feel "made-up" and, my skin looks healthier with even color.
i love clinique
Paige from Franklin, TX
I like how it feels on my face, not too oily.
Amazing gorgeous finish
Drking from USA LA
Out of any powder compact I've used, this leaves the most beautiful gorgeous finish on the skin.
It does exactly what I want!
ML from Pico Rivera, CA
It's my everyday use! Looks very smooth!
Great makeup if you have little time to get ready in the AM!
Mo from Colorado
Use this any day, especially if you are in a rush. Looks natural while covering my age spots, redness, scarring and freckles. You don't need to use much. Goes on and feels like powder, but does not enhance fine lines and wrinkles. I am allergic to different types of makeup, but I never have any issues with Clinique. I will continue to use this product as long as they make it!
I really like this
Andie from Stephens City va
I thought this was a very good product.I would use it again.
I don't have to wear foundation anymore because of this!
Clinique saved my acne filled face from San Diego
I apply this powder with the Clinique foundation brush. Brush cost 20 bucks but I have had it for over a year and still looks new. I think using that certain brush makes a huge different. Make sure you buy a darker shade than you normally do because I see people complaining about it being to pale. I had that same problem and then returned it for the "deep" shade and I love it. Always moisturize well before using and you shouldn't have a problem with it staying on a good 8 hours. When I top it off with the Clinique bronzer and my face always looks so good. Huge plus is since this powder has great coverage I don't need foundation and at first that was weird but not using foundation has made the pigment in my skin loook so good.
I would buy this product again
MadeInDetroit from Michigan
I like the light coverage, that is not too heavy, but enough to cover some of my flaws.
