Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation

Many people fear the powder , there is no fearing the powder here. I love powder, my oily skin loves powder and I am a big powder foundation fan .

Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation is now available as a powder . It's a mineral based powder and comes in seriously cool packaging.

The foundation here is very finely milled and leaves skin looking airbrushed and flawless. Coverage is medium. It's not full but not sheer .  The finish is not fully matte but almost.  It's soft though and not heavy or ashy and looks good. If you like powders and can use them, i/e oilier skins, you need to check this.

The foundation comes in a jar that looks like fragrance. The brush for it is snapped into the top of the container. Unscrew the top, pop out the brush and swirl in the powder .

The shade shown is 104 Cream which is lighter than it looks in the jar. It's the lightest shade of eight.

Skin Illusion Powder Foundation is $ 40 .

I noticed it's not on the Clarins website yet. It is a very new product and is most likely coming very soon. According to Clarins it was to be available in August, so keep looking.Their new eye cream is also not up yet so they may have gotten pushed back.
