I have been using Clinique loose powder for years. My mother used it, and at one point, my daughter used it as well. This powder has remained unchanged over the years, which is a good thing. I have been very pleased with this lightweight powder.
This Clinique blended powder is hypo-allergenic and fragrance free, two very important qualities. There are a variety of shades to choose from, something for everyone. It might not be the best item to carry during travel and the powder does tend to stick to your make-up mirror, but those are minor inconveniences.
The container this powder comes in, is a quality container. It is plastic, but does not have a cheap look. My only complaint is with brush that comes with this set. It is a very nice quality brush in a silver twist off container. These brushes used to be made of higher quality. The brushes of the past five years or so are not as well made. When they are new, the hairs in the brush come out all over your face for weeks until it is broken in enough to behave. This can be annoying.
I feel Clinique carries excellent products. I will continue to use this powder. Thanks!
