Clinique Blended Face Powder and Brush
Hey Everyone :)
In my recent bad side of being a make-up fanatic – Clinique has stood strong with me whether it’s their anti-blemish range, under eye treatment or blended face powder. Everything has worked wonder in my favor.
I’m going to review a series of Clinique products in coming week. Firstly, let us begin with their blended face powder.
Few months back I came across unpleasant break-out experience and was under acne medication. After constant research and reading lot of reviews – I rushed to the Clinique counter in search of their anti-blemish range. Later, they held a test for my skin and the SA suggested me about their Blended Face Powder for my skin since it controls oil and allergy tested. For those few months it also worked as a temporary substitute for foundation and compact and got so addicted that now I can’t walk out of my house without it.

Other Shades Available in this Range: Invisible Blend, Transparency 02, Transparency 04, Transparency 05, Transparency Bronze, Transparency Neutral.
My Experience with the Product:
Clinique blended face powder comes in transparent jar packaging with a silver screw lid. When you get through the screw lid, you will notice a white colored sifter for more manageable usage of the product. They even provided a mini-brush which came in very handy for touch-ups during travelling but it got misplaced during its transition from one hand-bag to another (Silly Me as usual :D)
The texture of the powder is kept very smooth and fine which gets spread and blend into the skin effortlessly. It provides a natural matte finish to the face plus never looked cakey even if I overdo a bit during my struggle for completely hiding those pores. The coverage is sheer so you won’t succeed in completely hiding those pores but will manage in making them look smaller. Due to its coverage it would not cover acne marks or pigmented areas but does offers nice even toned finish after application.
Now turning to the fact why I really purchased this product – It’s the ability of the product to control oil on my combination-oily skin during hot Indian summers in a very effective and efficient manner. It stays on nicely and controls oil for about 5-6 hours easily sustaining the heat and humid climate. I have started to use it few of months back so haven’t experienced it for the rest of the climates but can surely notify that if it does handles my skin with such care in Indian summers it would definitely going to work amazing for the rest of the period.
I agree to the fact, the price is being on expansive side but the quantity on offer will last for a long time. The powder suits all skin types even the sensitive ones as it is allergy tested and also 100% fragrance free. The shade SA suggested me in accordance with my skin tone was Transparency 03 which turned out to be an ideal choice. There are 5 more shades covering beauties with fair to dark skin tones.
- Travel friendly packaging.
- Smooth texture.
- Blends like a dream.
- Natural matte finish.
- Doesn’t give a cakey look.
- Evens out on application.
- Controls oil efficiently and effectively on my combination-oily skin.
- Didn’t cause any irritation to my break-outs or didn’t result in any future break-outs.
- Works on all skin types.
- Allergy tested.
- 100% fragrance free.
- Plenty of shade options.
On the Mediocre End:
- On the expansive side.
My Final Take on the Product:
Clinique blended face powder is currently one of my favorite product. It’s a must have product taking in account all the above mentioned striking features plus it stood by me during those bad break-outs. It didn’t let the situation turn any adverse and along with anti-blemish range has helped me immensely in bringing back my skin back to good old days. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!
