Almost there, Clinique setting powder…

Happy Sunday you gorgeous lot! 

So lately I have been really suffering with my make up clogging up my skin, my face is much more oily than usual and I think it’s something to do with a hormone change but that’s another story.

During a work trip to Scotland I purchased Clinique’s almost powder make up. I had heard that it was super lightweight with an spf and oil free. Tick, tick, tick! 

I paid £22.50 for this at duty free but Clinique is available on most department store make up counters. This is the compact with the brush not the foam round which I much prefer. That’s just my preference, I think a brush distributes better on my skin. 

I love the packaging it feels much more luxurious than the £22 I paid for it. The coverage is good, very natural so it doesn’t cover every blemish but it’s lightweight which is what I wanted. 
The colour is 02 neutral fair, it’s also, as I said Spf 15 which is a bonus for me. It says on the back of the packaging that it is oil free and contains antioxidants, how true that is I don’t know. I can overlook the fact I might have to re apply half way through the day because, look how cute that brush is! 
I defo rate this powder and I am finding it much better for skin than my usual Rimmel powder, my skin is less clogged and generally feels less ‘heavy’ if that makes sense.

I would give it an 8/10 and I would really recommend it to anyone who doesn’t want to wear a lot of make up on a day to day basis. 

Anyone else got suggestions for light weight powder make up? I would love to hear your thoughts! 

Thank you for reading my blabberings, you can find me in all corners of the Internet. Here, here and here

  1. I used to wear bare minerals which was really lightweight and super good coverage but I used to spend a fortune on it so I stopped. I wish I hadn’t because it was great.
    I have a lot of clinique products, I love their eye products as I have really sensitive eyes and since using their products haven’t had puffy or red eyes so I might give this a go.
