Most Helpful Positive Review My go to foundation
This has been my go to foundation for years and as a busy working studying mom who likes to look glam everyday this is perfect - not messy. I have no time in the morning I put my make up on in my car! but I wack this on over my Clinique acne concealer and I have the full coverage look instantly! And never reapply!
the tones are slightly off for me (my best shade is still a little too pink) so I remedy that by applying the right tone of bronzer on top (light hoola bronzer) and it's perfect
Also being oily after a couple hours I can look a little greasy so I use a little blotting paper (restroom paper towel) and I'm as good as new no need to reapply! I find I reapply only if I have a dinner after work.
Another point to get full coverage in one hit press down on your sponge a bit when apply the product to the sponge. If you don't press down you will actually think it's light coverage!
Most Helpful Critical Review This does not come in enough Shades & Main Ingredient- talc!
I tried this when I was looking to get away from Bare Minerals and try different Compact powders that would be easier to carry around and I tried all of the compacts that Clinique carries including this one and the closest color they had was the lightest shade they make in this which was too light for me and the next shade was way too dark so I looked like a ghost after they applied it..and it broke me out the next day- and when I was wearing it, it felt very heavyand oily. Also, the main ingredient is talc which we know can cause ovarian cancer so I would stay away from it. BareMinerals blemish remedy is amazing and all of the ingredients are wonderful.

I was pleasantly surprised how natural this looked on my skin. I have very fair skin and this did not have an orange tint like most foundations have. It stayed on well ever with a mask on.
Best powder I've ever owned!
Christi O from Houston, TX
I bought this on a whim and it is the best powder coverage I've ever had! No shininess coming through within an hour like other powders. I am pale with some color so I kind of wish there was an in between color between the first two lightest colors but it still looks good. I'm definitely not as light as the ivory so if you're between go with the cream I'm believe.
Full coverage and lightweight
Caitlin from Seattle
I love this product - enough coverage to use instead of foundation, but still lightweight.
Love this product
Skynderlyn from Springfield, OR
I've been buying this for years. I love it! It's nice and light feeling, not cakey.
Sue from Gainesville, Florida
Always my go to
Love this product!!
Nicole from Reidsville NC
I love the coverage this product gives me on top of my foundation!
Michelle from Texas
This is a great powder. It is so smooth and light but with good coverage
Humidity Holy Grail
T from Texas
I will never use another powder!! I actually did try to go back to Jane Iredale because I wanted to go more natural with my makeup, but it was literally falling off my skin with the Texas humidity. I went to order this one again after just 5 days and noticed that it highlights it is good for humidity and sweat. TRUE STATEMENT!! I love that this is a foundation powder so it offers full coverage while not caking or looking fake. A little goes a long way, it wears smooth and lasts all day. I don't reapply from day to night. I highly recommend!
I buy this compact over and over
happyshopper33 from Philadelphia, PA
I use this makeup when I don't want to put on a lot of makeup, but I want to cover up my redness and blotches. It covers well, but it is does not cake.
Oily skin throw away - falls short on all claims
Natty from Richmond, VA
The shade range does run dark as others have noted - if you are fair skinned get the very latest shade. This does not blend well over pores and basically highlights them. It also does not work in fighting shine at all. Basically it does not meet any of the claims it has listed. If you have truly oily skin try Mac studio fix powder foundation (it still made me oily within an hour or two but the product itself is just worlds better overall & I can always blot) or cover FX pressed mineral powder foundation. Both have an excellent shade range and are way better products. The cover FX pressed mineral powder foundation is now my holy Grail powder foundation for my truly oily skin.
THE BEST PURSE POWDER
MnNice from MN
I love this powder because the formula is amazing, never cakes, absorbs moisture, and covers but not too much. The compact is minimalistic, with a great mirror and a nice applicator. Thank you Clinique. Please do not change anything, I highly recommend!
Amazing product with excellent coverage.
HayNic from Tennessee
I've tried so many powder foundations, and this one is definitely my favorite that I've tried. It's got great coverage and doesn't leave you looking dried out or powdery.
The Sitch from Altoona, PA
I had higher hopes for this product. It doesn't have as much coverage as I'd like. It seems somewhat build-able, however, I've used other powders that have more coverage with less product. I also feel that it wears off more quickly than others.
Very pleased with purchase; excellent suggestion.
None from Bixby, Oklahoma
Love it. I'm a lifer with this product.
Jennifer from Alabama
Great product. It has coverage without being too heavy.
wicha from Dallas, TX
I've used this product for years, can't imagine switching to anything else!
Covers, blends and stays on
Allison from Ohio
I like to press this powder in 1st then use a brush to smooth it out. Great for my oily skin- covers up acne well!
Diane horselady from Boca Raton Florida
Covers small wrinkles and age spots. Color a little to light. I wish it would apply nice with a brush but you need to use a sponge. Stays on till washed off.
I get a good even coverage and an excellent match
jc from geneva IL
I have some scars and it does a great job covering them up
Best powder foundation!
Kristen from South Carolina
I have acne prone skin and this does not break me out.
Try new things, but always come back to Clinique
BlueSunshine from CA
I've been using this foundation for years. It covers well and lasts all day. I've tried several brands and liquids (love to try new makeup), but nothing quite works as well as this. Will always buy this!!
I would buy this again
Don from Cumberland, RI
Use it daily
Found my new go to powder foundation
Amanda from Nashville, TN
Love this product. It is my go to for quick applications and non-formal occasions. I use this everyday for work and never have to worry about reapplying or creasing. Will use again and again. Absolutely would recommend.
Favorite product in make up bag
M from Brick nj
This product makes my skin look so flawless, matches my skin tone, and still makes it look like I don't have any make up on. Usually something with that much coverage tends to look like you have something on, but this is effortlessly natural looking.
I have been buying this item for over 20 years!
MC from Chicago
I love everything about it and the fact that I can look great with little make up in no time!
