Rated 3 out of 5Â by Nikola Not what I expected
Generally not wearing much make-up I usually have a few bits from Clinique when I feel I need a bit of a pick me up. I expected the powder to me similar to the bare minerals foundation but found that the brush is too soft to get good coverage and the pot has to be lay flat at all times or the power goes everywhere. Might be my lack of knowledge of make up but I would have expected at least a cover for the lid to stop the excess spilling into the top of the pot.

This loose powder goes over the foundation really well, it is light and doesn't seem 'cakey' like pressed powders. It is easy to apply with a proper brush (not the one supplied with the product, which is more like a blusher brush) and feels light and good on the skin.

I have been using this product for over 10 years now and absolutley love it - It last for ages and once on gives a natural finish I use it with the superbalanced foundation and both together are a great product.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Wico What happened to the super balanced face powder I used to use?
I wanted to replace the Clinique super-balanced face powder that I used previously but it didn't appear to be available so I ordered this instead in the colour that looked closest to the one I used before.
However the colour is much lighter and I much prefer the way you twisted the pot to release the powder in the super-balanced powder. In this one I end up trying to shake powder up through the holes.
I doubt I will buy this one again.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by evielyn lovely powder,but...
YES,i really like this powder,not as good as your perfect light powder but i live in hope just like many other clinique users you bring it back until that day i will have to use this.This powder is a good alternative but not a patch on perfect light.I dont like the brush included it is too small for the face i dont know why you dont include a powder puff which you can put your two fingers through the ribbon and gentleypat/roll powder onto face then use that little brush to knock off any excess,but out of the two ditch the brush and include a quality puff as all loose powders should have.I like to apply loose powder that way then as i said use a powder brush to remove excess.PLEASE,PLEASE clinique ditch the tiny brush and include a powder puff or give the option of buying a quality puff.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Becki91 Great powder, and lovely little brush
I got this product at a reduced price, after using the product I would pay full price.
I have very pale skin with freckles and therefore find it difficult to find any foundation/powder which is the right shade, I purchased this powder in the transparency neutral shade and it is perfect, I couldn't be happier.
I agree with the product description which states, it is a loose lightweight powder which produces a silken, flawless finish. It leaves a lovely finish without any powdery finish. I have not noticed the product making pores seem to disappear, however this is a common claim which I have never found to be true, even from products which a much higher price tag.
The product can be used to set your foundation, but as I have quite good skin condition I sometimes use it alone to give my face a light finish after my usual skin care regime.
The small brush which comes with the product is gorgeous, I do not use it daily when applying make up (as I have a full brush set) it is however good quality and will be really helpful when I travel.

This powder is amazing, it blends in very well doesnt look noticable or orange, it sets make up well and kept my shiny face away from 9-6!! i have oily skin usually and this worked really well to keep the shine away! a good tip to keeping shine away is putting powder on with a sponge rather than a brush, pat it on dont rub it on and it goes into the face better and lasts alot longer, the only bad thing is that its hard to get the powder out of the container, this is why i give it a 4 but it is defo worth the money
