Questions & Answers for Clinique Blended Face Powder and Brush

Question
This vs. Bare Minerals Veil?
I just ordered the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil online, and even though it hasn't come yet I just saw this and it looks like it might be a better deal... I am debating returning the veil when it gets here since this comes with a brush and more product for less money, but first I want to know how the two products compare.
1. Has anyone tried this vs. the mineral veil? How do they compare?
2. Is this really sparkly? I read that in some reviews, but I'm not sure if I should believe them or not..
3. Is it cakey looking/does it look unnatural?
4. How is the texture/color of the transparent one? How would it work for setting concealer? Should I use it before/after luminizer?
Lots of questions, I know! Thanks!

I have tried both but i prefer this because it last longer and doesn't become oily and run my foundation by the end of the day.

this product is better than bare minerals because it doesn't shimmer at all plus it does last longer than the mineral veil, the brush is poor quality though, so I my advice is to purchase a powder brush. The bare minerals can also get streaky and very messy compared to clinique . Clinique powder really makes your skin look natural, like its glowing but bare minerals does appear to make your skin glow but if you dont like to look shimmery then dont buy bare minerals also the clinique powder has minerals enriched in this powder. I hope this helped and if you have any questions you can contact me on my youtube account beauty channel @ youtube.com/misssalyssssa.com

Right now I have both powders. I think BE mineral viel is a good product because it won't change the color of your foundation and is matte, but I have medium to dark skin so it can look chalky. I prefer Clinique blended face powder bc it has a very subtle soft shimmer and gives a nice glow. I use Clinique supermoisture makeup which is super dewy so I have to wait a few minutes and let my foundation completely dry, otherwise the blended face powder sticks to the skin unevenly. FYI the cute little travel brush is totally useless, so use your own brush!

Question
What color should I get this powder in?
I have medium light golden beige skin and I don't know what color to get this powder in. I have heard that this powder runs light in colors, so I don't know which color to choose. Is the transparent color really transparent, or does it make your skin look light? If it helps I am 'Fresh Neutral' for clinique acne solutions.

Most days I only wear this powder. It does set concealer and foundation well, but you don't have to use either one to use this powder.

I was worried about color so I use the invisible blend - and guess what? Perfect! It really is invisible. My skin is fair, with a decent amount of freckles (more in the summer) and I do get red blotchiness. On top of my foundation this gives a nice finish and I haven't had any issues with coverage.

These powders are transparent and can easily be used for any skin. Since you already use Fresh Neutral in the Acne Solutions line, we would suggest trying Transparency Neutral or Transparency 3.

I have also had reactions to BE products, but never had a problem with this loose powder. It also does not contain zinc oxide which I typically have a reaction to.

It comes with a little brush. I like to fill up the cap with powder and take it with me for touch ups. It's not very usefull to put powder all over your face, because it's small and not dense enough to do that.
The brush comes in a tube, one that you twist up to reveal the little brush. It's about the size of a lipstick tube, just a tad bigger.

Transparency 2 and Transparency Neutral are the same shade of makeup; however, Transparency 2 is slightly pinker and intended for people who have cool undertones to their skin (that is, pink undertones, rather than the "warm" gold-ish undertones that are more common). Transparency Neutral is a blend between cool and warm, and can be worn by people of either category. If you are not sure which color powder to buy if you have fair to medium skin, buy Transparency Neutral unless you know already that your skin contains cool undertones.

I would suggest Transparency Neutral. It's working well for my light/light-medium skin. If you're worried about buying a whole container and wasting the money - ask at your local Clinique counter for a small sample. Hope that helps!

find the corresponding shade in Clinique Face powder. If you can't find the exact shade, go one shade lighter for winter and one shade darker for summer.

You might want to try Clinique's redness solutions loose powder, it is made to balance the redness.

I have pink undertones to my skin as well and find that some colors can turn yellow on me. Try the 08 Neutral - it has a great balance of color and only brings out your natural skin tone.

These are sheer lightweight powders that work for any skintone. From the sound of your complexion, we'd suggest checking out Transparency Neutral or Transparency 3.

Question
Compare to Sephora's Tricks of the Trade?
I do not wear foundation, never have. I hate the feel of it on my skin. I have combination skin that leans to the oily side, especially in summer. I don't like anything heavy on my face and just recently started using Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, which I love because my face still feels fresh and clean. I am looking for something light to tone down shine as well as blend imperfections and am trying to decide between Clinique's Blended Face Powder or Sephora's Tricks of the Trade. I have med/dark brown hair and green eyes with medium skin a bit on the olive side. Any suggestions?

This powder is absolutely amazing. The color is sheer enough to wear by its self and not look cakey, but is very buildable for the exact coverage that you want.
