Rated 4.45 out of 5 stars
This powder beats all other powders for me as it's quite sheer, sets my foundation without turning cakey, and doesn't give my fair skin an orange cast.
One of the ladies who worked in Ulta recommended this product to me and said it was the best, and I'm honestly very disappointed with this product. Not only did it not match my skin while giving me patches on my face, it also made my skin look and feel old. Never ever again will I be buying this product. Ever. STICK TO THEIR SKIN CARE PRODUCTS!

The best powder ive ever used, really helps with my undereye creases. Though, when it says transparency, I thought the powder would be translucent. But it oxidizes on my face and makes it a bit darker.

very happy with this item

Like the way it sets my foundation.

I too have been buying this face powder for 25 years and actually loved it. Just bought one and noticed immediately the price increase, the smaller amount and no brush included. This will be my last purchase with clinique….. i am sure i can find a similiar product. And i agree with the other women….. the ounces decrease was done very sneaky… like maybe we wouldnt notice. I am disappointed, i thought clinique had more class than that.

I have used this loose powder for years and really like it. I do wish Clinique would stop changing their color names. Such a pain to find the color I want.

I'm still a loose powder fan even after much trial and error. I got this in the lightest shade. It finishes my skin flawlessly without changing the color of my blush at all. Locks in my look all day. This is a must try.

I think this loose setting powder is so slept on. Its so finely milled it makes a poreless look on the skin. I am oily and acne prone and this is comfortable on the skin always

I've been using this for 40 years. Best powder around and the brush that came with. It was wonderful and disposable when you were done with a container of powder. Now when I purchased it, you get much less powder, and no brush! They expect us to buy a $28 brush when your faithful customers Have been using this for decades. That change was too abrupt, such a shame, this is a big difference from the last blended powder. I hate to think I have to look for a new one.

Been a Bare Minerals user since I was unable to find Clinique's Blended Face Powder at any counter or online, at least 12 years. Now that I have found it again, goodbye Bare Minerals. Just as well though, they BM actually cancelled my last order after it was placed and confirmed. Took two weeks with no response as to why. However, Facebook indicates they were sold and the future for the brand is unknown. Too Bad, was a great product.

Don't think I didn't notice that you shrunk the amount of product just like all the food manufacturers are doing. A better thing to do would have been to offer multiple sizes for different prices, or just raise the price for the same size this used to be. I think most people would pay it, because that is inflation, but this is the kind of thing that makes people hate big corporations because it is "sneaky".

Will buy this again.
Not good if you have fry under eyes

Clinique's translucent face powder has been a favorite for years. It's fast and easy to add a finished look just over moisturizer with a little touch of cover-up for blemishes. Works over both my past youthful dewy skin and over my mature skin condition.

It is not cool to lessen the product size and charge equal or more. I will purchase this time, but will be seeking other products that might be similar. Very disappointed. Also the moisturizer is no longer offered without the pump, which I toss and keep my old bottle cap. Maybe that's a way for you to save money without being disrespectful and thinking we won't notice when amount is diminished by almost a quarter. NOT cool Clinique. Without the discount, I would be walking away after using Clinique for decades.
I will definitely buy this product again. I will recommend it to a friend. I used to use it in the past and now I have come full circle back to it. I have medium skin and it works.

So the I originally went into ulta to buy Laura Mercier setting powder but they where out of stock. So I asked the beauty advisor on a comparable one to LM and I was suggested the Clinique. I was very skeptical but really needed it for a special event. Let me tell you, I am now OBSESSED with the Clinique one! It's very light in texture and doesn't feel heavy on the face, and doesn't cake or dry out. It's a beautiful setting powder.

This is a wonderful powder. I bought it on a whim as I need a new powder. The only issue is it's not "invisible" as it claims to be. It has a yellow tint that should be perfect for all within the shades of their current powders; 1-4 shade range.
It's not for anyone who should be within shade "1."
If your fair to pale, it will give a yellow tint. I'm on the light side and it fully disappears my contour. It's too dark to be transparent. They need to make one that says "translucent" because this is not for us fair/light girls.
So I removed 1 star for that. It's perfect for all other shade ranges that are light medium to deep whether it's for setting a full face or just to brighten based on your skin tone.

I'll continue to purchase.

Love the powder. Was so disappointed to find Clinique giving less product. I too have been using this product for over 25years like other reviewers and noticed the difference in packaging right away. Although the container is the same it weighs 10 grams less! And there no longer a brush included. Clinique, you took away the foundation pump years ago. I reused my old ones. You stopped the "Repair ware laser focus". I've adjusted, but you are now offering inferior products for more money. You really need to rethink how your faithful clientele are going to continue to react. It's obvious from the reviews that I'm not the only one that is unhappy. And the picture still shows the brush that use to be included with loose powder purchase!

I've used this powder in the past and really like the way it covers.

I use to use this back in college. Happily surprised it's still around. Back then, there was no product that give me the finish I wanted. So I tried the rub in method mentioned at the bottom of how to apply. Personally, this is the only way I would apply this powder. It gives a wonderful finish. Through the years I've tried this technique with other powders. The Clinique Blended Powder is superior - it just disappears into skin - perfecting (before we'd ever heard of perfecting powders), making pores disappear, and giving a radiant, but not shiny finish. It was matte, but not cakey, flat matte. Again, I used this when matte was very dry. I didn't want cakey - but I didn't want shiny. There was a lot of both in the 80's. Back then, you had to be creative to get the textures and looks you wanted - application was key. I would not apply this with a brush, but you might want one to dust off excess after rubbing into skin. Don't be afraid to gently rub the product in very well. It actually looks better the more you rub in. Now that I know this is still around
- I will probably try again. When you look at ingredients, this qualifies as a mineral powder. Way ahead of its time.

I have been using Clinique's blended face powder for 25 years. I have always loved it. I am very disappointed in the downsizing of this product. Additionally, you have to now purchase the brush. The retractable brush was included at one time. Between the downsized product and the need to purchase a brush, I may begin to search for a new powder since the cost is now more comparable to other upscale cosmetics.
Katie from Minnesota
This is the same price it has always been but now you don't get a brush and it went from 35g to 25g. That is a big difference. I already changed my eye products to a different brand and now I will be changing my face products at well. Very disappointed in Clinique.
