Rated 5 out of 5Â by LittleSue My best foundation ever!
This is a miracle powder! For years I have tried to cover up the fine red veins on my face with liquid foundations to no avail. This lovely light little pot of powder gives excellent coverage and it still looks so natural. When I first used it I almost cried as I was so happy with the results. I don't use the brush that comes with it as it's too short and stubby and lays the powder on too thick. I just use a smaller longer brush and lightly apply the powder. It's amazing,, I bought the lightest shade and it's nice. Goes well over BB cream too! You need to buy this. It lasts for ages and you will love it!

It's the easier loose powder foundation I hv ever had, I can finish my making up in something like 3 mins ! If Clarins can add SPF into the formula, I can promise it will be their Star product !

Better than bare minerals with Clarins lovely natural botanical scent. It conceals and gives a glowing complection without being either too shiny or too drying. I use over super restorative tinted cream and am delighted with result.
Only down point is the beautiful but not practical bottle that spills powder everywhere. Clever idea; pop out brush but, it picks up too much powder. I have decanted powder into smaller 'travel' compact with finer mesh and this works very well.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ribena Great coverage
When I first purchased this during the summer I have to be honest and say I wasn't very impressed. Tried a few times and put back in the cupboard. However recently decided to give it another go and I love it. Very quick and easy to use and gives really good coverage over red areas yet skin still looks fresh and luminous. Am a convert.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Fairskinbeauty Lightest shades not available - warning
Firstly, the positives. This foundation enables you to build up coverage and lasts all day. It is one of the best foundations I have ever used. Unfortunately, the lightest shade Clarins make it in is 105. This is nowhere near light enough for my fair skin. Clarins make two lighter shades of foundation (103 and 104) but neither is available in either the mineral foundation or the powder. Not good for those of us with combination skin who don't want a liquid. If you have fair skin be careful when ordering this online as you might have the same problem. Sort it out Clarins - lighter shades please!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Cara1974 Need lighter shades
I have the lightest shade but even so it is too dark for me. I can use during summer when I have colour in my face and it is a beautiful powder with good coverage but leaves skin looking natural. I've only not given a 5 due to the limited colours as I can also use part of the year. It would be great if they did a porcelain or ivory colour with a pink undertone for us pale and interesting English roses.

love this powder, been using it for 2 years, i do reapply it at lunch time because i have oily skin and prefer having my make up looking perfect and matte, would recommend, product feels light and doesn't clog my pores

Yes,i really like this powder foundation it makes my skin nice and soft not drying for my 44 yr old skin and does not sit ontop of mt fine lines.I found there was no instruction on the box or little leaflets inside showing how to apply as I thought you had to buff in like other mineral foundations [ never liked doing that] as I think can make sensitive skin worse so I went online and found out you apply by gently stroking on,im glad as I should of known clarins would not like you to buff.The packaging is a little bulky even though it looks nice sitting on my dressing table but not vary practicle for travel.
