      Love this product. I have very dry skin and use to use powder foundation. I recently switched to liquid foundation but love to apply this after to really even out my skin tone and give it more of a matte finish without drying out my skin.

        Best everyday foundation. Has good coverage with a matte finish and literally takes a few swipes to apply and you have coverage all day. I work in the health care field and have young children. This is super easy to apply and gives me that put together look without spending hours. Will continue to buy this.

            Comments about Clinique Almost Powder Makeup:

            So it's not that easy to find a foundation for overall coverage that doesn't make me pale or white as a ghost, but this one looks more natural for me and I don't have to worry about blush still as the natural redness in my cheeks still comes through but more as a blush look when I wear it.
