good for under eye

this powder foundation is great for sensitive skin, for covering blemishes, and for hiding under-eye circles

color accuracy


it made my skin look yellowish, dirty, and oily after wearing it for a few hours

- Sephora User

at first i thought this powder was ok because it absorbed oil and took away the shine, but after using it for a week or two i noticed that it totally dried out my skin and after it had been on for a little while it turned totally orange

- Sephora User


non brightening

plus, i rub so hard trying to cover my imperfections, that my face is bright red after using it

- Ulta User

it also had a weird dulling affect shortly after i applied it

- Sephora User


medium coverage

gives medium coverage and great at covering up redness

- Dillard's User

this compact not only does what it says but it made my face look like i wasnt wearing makeup and covered most of my skin flaws i will also be buying thier liquid foundation for maximum coverage as this compact is for medium coverage

- Sephora User

best use


this pressed powder has been a staple in my makeup collection for years - it is not my favorite piece, but is a solid option for light weekend makeup (by itself) and does blend really nicely when worn with clinique foundations/bb creams

- Ulta User

it blends really well and stays in place for a long time

Amazing Make-Up

This make-up is absolutly wonderful! It has great coverage. I used to have to wear a liquid foundation with a powder on top just to get decent coverage (I suffer from acne scarring and hyperpigmentation). This make up needs nothing under it. Now i simply moisturize and apply this powder with a brush. I love it and will never use another make up. It is NOT cakey, it looks completely natural, the color blends seemlessly, and it does not dry your skin out, even in the winter. I no longer have flaky, dry patches. Also, most make-ups cause me to have acne breakouts, but since I have been using this powder i have gotten a dramatic reduction in the number of blemishes I get. This is a miracle make-up. In one step it covers every flaw perfectly. I have tried other make-ups and nothing is as good. I am hooked on Clinique for good. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="6310129505362155974-full" data-show="6310129505362155974-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

This freed my face from foundation!

I love this product! I started wearing it 10 years ago when I was 33 and have used it almost daily since. I used to wear full coverage face foundation with pressed powder over it, I have not done this in the last 10 years now because of this powder. I simply put on moisturizer and then apply this powder and I'm done - it looks better than regular foundation, same flaw coverage (I have pink, splotchy skin), doesn't give you a cakey moist makeup feeling on your face and it wears well for over 12 hours with only maybe one or two touch ups - depending on the heat and how much you touch your face. I have far less skin issues since I've worn this, no blackheads, no clogged pores due to heavy foundation. I wear the type for oily skin and it does well to control oil in my t-zone all day and it doesn't look heavy or cakey even when its reapplied. I love this product and live in fear that they will discontinue it. This saves me hours a week in makeup routine time and can be worth day and night. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

couldnt walk out the house without it!

***i have oily skin so i thought this would help reduce the shine but it made me break out, and i normally don;t if i do it;s like one pimple but this gave me a few. and it didn;t last very long. put it on in the morning took the bus to school, and it was already coming off. :S.******gives awsome matt coverage makes my complexion look awsome. i recommend it for people that on somedays their oil production is out of control.****** have very oil skin, so in the summer time my face is very shine which i don't like and this sheer pressed powder works great reduces the shiny on my skin and this color is perfect for me... i ****** carry this around in my bag everyday, it's great sheer coverage that gets rid of my mid-day shine.******Since I have naturally oily skin, this powder really helps me stay looking shine free and not like I just came from the gym (even when I haven't).******I love this powder, i got the invisible matte. It's great, it does a wonderful job keeping shine away. Also, it never looks cakey, no matter how much you put on.******I like dusting this on my t-zone where my skin is oily. My powder has a bit of little shimmer so it isn't completely matte. This doesn't have full coverage, so it's perfect if you need just a little bit and not over doing it.******While I don't have much experience with pressed powders, I have a lot of experience with very oily skin, and while this product did temporarily take care of my shine, it did NOT have any oil-absorbing qualities. The sheer coverage is good, but I have to reapply it several times throughout the day to control the shine and if I touch any area on my skin after I use the powder, it's still very slick and oily. Maybe it works better on people with less oily skin.******Great product alone or to set foundation, however every time I use it, I get red irritated patches around my eyes. I'm not sure what's in Cliniques products, but the skin around my eyes can't tolerate it. It does reduce shine & oiliness though!******I have mixed feelings about this powder. It doesn't last all day, but it actually reduces the shine on my face for about the first half of my day. It does even things out on my face though, but I guess I'm just not that impressed with this product.******I love this powder! I have EXTREMELY oily skin, and I have been using this every day since I bought it 2 weeks ago. Its great. I put on my oil-control moisturizer and mattifier, then I dust this powder over my face. I wear the transuscent one. It never cakes up on me, its as light as air, and keeps my face from being shiny for hours. That's really saying something, given the fact that if I planted an oil derrek on my forehead, I'd strike it rich!******I use it after applying Almost Makeup on my face. Love the sheer cover of the powder and it definitely helps with my oily appearance. I still have to blot during the day, but my face doesn't look as shiny as it used to be when I do. A pretty good product for a good price!******Pretty decent powder, gets the job done. If I'm out all day, I definitely need to reapply it and/or blot the oil on my face, but it does help set my foundation. Doesn't provide any coverage on its own, but the color isn't so white that it looks chalky on your skin.***** ** ** *I needed a compact for touchups at my wedding and a friend suggested this one. It did the job perfectly. Took away the shine through many dances, hugs, and kisses and never felt cakey or looked like I had makeup on. Very natural shine reducer. blended really well with my other makeup.* **** *Other than mascara, it was the only makeip I took on my honeymoon. It toned down any minro redness I got from the sun but let my natural color, tan come through.* ** <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="2695373551646327228-full" data-show="2695373551646327228-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Highly impressed

I've been avoiding powder foundation because back when I used to wear powder foundation years ago I remember it being cakey and chalk-like. After trying every liquid and cream foundation for sensitive skin, this was my last option, and I am so mad at myself for not buying this sooner!!!Even without primer or setting spray this powder looks fantastic, very skin-like. Set with spray and you've got perfect skin. The coverage is wonderful, you don't need a liquid foundation or color corrector under this. I have a lot of blemishes from a bad reaction to a beauty product, this powder by itself almost covers it completely. If you want to wear this over a foundation I really don't recommend you do that, it does not look proper. My face looked grey and blotchy when I tried it over a liquid foundation, and I'm a (fading) tan SE Asian. But this powder is so good you can absolutely wear it alone!!I love this so much, I hope they never discontinue it!! And for the price?! OMG this product is fantastic. I could've saved so much money if I just started with this. « less

I loved the idea of a long-wearing 2-in-1 powder and foundation combined in a portable compact and was interested in trying this as there is not many powder foundations on the market. Unfortunately, this is not the one for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The powder goes on nicely, but it seemed to sit on top of your skin instead of blending in to it. After an hour or two, my oily skin was shiny again! To the best of my knowledge, all Clinique products are supposed to be hypo-allergenic, yet everyone I have tried has made me break out including Clinique's Superpowder Double Face Makeup Face Powder. This never happens to me, even with drug store brand makeup. The packaging is attractive and convenient. I wouldn't recommend Clinique's Superpowder Double Face Makeup Face Powder for oily complexions. I need a product with more staying power that doesn't make me break out! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="5139290654880522128-full" data-show="5139290654880522128-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>
