Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15

Posted on

” Smart ” technology keeps dry areas comfortable, oily areas less shiny. No-waste grinder dispenses skin-defending vitamins with each twist. Fresh-shaved mineral powder clings evenly to skin. Lasts for up to 8 long hours. Includes antibacterial brush.

An encapsulated complex of moisturizing ingredients including Phytosqualane and Murumuru Butter are included to add comfort to dry areas of the face as needed. Oily areas and shine breakthrough are controlled throughout the day thanks to the mineral-rich formula which is sweat and humidity-resistant.

Broad spectrum SPF 15 sun protection is provided with 3:1 UVB/UVA protection. This 3:1 ratio, already mandated in Europe, ensures UVA protection is provided. And, this all physical sunscreen is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula also delivers antioxidant protection – Vitamins C and E protect the skin from environmental aggressors and free radical damage.

This mineral infused product starts off as a compressed powder which is then released as loose powder by a new-to-Clinique compact “ shaver ” ( Elizabeth Arden had done this before ). Each calibrated turn of the shaver allows the perfect amount of fresh powder to be dispensed, providing a controllable dispensary without any spills or wastage sometimes experienced with a traditional loose powder.

Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula is enriched with Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium and Zinc to promote healthy skin.

Allergy Tested. 100% Fragrance Free. Oil-Free. Ophthalmologist Tested.

Well, although this smart powder doesn’t feels cakey & irritates my skin ( no clogging, drying, flaking ); has an adequate SPF; nil buffing required and has a great selection of shades ( 8 in total ), It’s not my HG powder makeup due to:

1) It doesn’t last up to 8 hours – It merely stay true for up to 4 hours on my skin, before it slides & oily breakthrough becomes visible.

2) The finish is less refined compared to the rest of the mineral makeup available on the market.

3) The brush that comes with this compact is hideous, and one of the harshest brush even known to mankind – Okay, we all know that little brush incorporated is usually crap, but this is phenomenal ( in a bad way )!

So, I would only recommend this to people who has drier skin, that requires sheer coverage and own a good powder brush.

  1. Hi David,
    I actually have this foundation on my “wishlist” but I have seen and heard many negative things about it.
    I may have to strike it off the list!!
