Clinique Blended Face Powder - Invisible Blend

I've been using Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder for years and have always been satisfied with it. Great product and great price (under £5). However, I got the powder bug recently and fancied a change. I have tried other powders in the past, from low end to high end, but have never really been satisfied and I have always ended going back to Rimmels Stay Matte. So when I decided I wanted a change this time around, I decided to do a bit of research, read a few reviews, ask a few people etc and the powder Ive ended up with and which Ive been using for the past couple of weeks is Clinique's Blended Face Powder.

The powder is describes as being suitable for all skin types and aims to help with oil control, make pores less apparent and provides a silken, flawless finish. It also comes with its own brush, which is actually super handy. Although I don't use this to apply my powder when at home, its great for carrying around in my handbag.

There is a choice of 5 shades which are Invisible Blend, Transparency 2, Transparency 3, Transparency 4 and Transparency Neutral.

If Im honest, I do prefer a pressed powder over loose powder as loose powder seems to just be a bit messy for my liking, however Im really really pleased with this powder. It is very finely milled and has such a soft silky feeling to it. The shade I have is Invisible Blend and although the shade looks dark in the pot, to be classed as 'Invisible', It doesn't alter the colour of my foundation in any way. When applied it simply disappears into my skin, leaving no powdery look whatsoever on my face and results in a gorgeous flawless finish. It does a good job of blurring out my pores and also a fantastic job at keeping shine at bay through out the day. Ive also noticed that it really helps keep my make up in place, especially around my chin area where I have blemishes covered with concealer. My blemishes stay completely covered for most of the day and I very rarely need a top up of concealer.

Although Its not cheap with it being priced at £20.00 you get more than your moneys worth as the pot contains 35g, which is basically a ton of product!

If you are on the lookout for a new powder, I'd definitely recommend you go to a Clinique counter and take a look at their Invisible Blend Powder.


  1. My Aunty uses this and says its really good, maybe I should try it

  2. I can recommend the Gentle Light Powder that Clinique do as well.

    Its the same texture as this one, beautifully soft but the difference is its sort of glowy. There's a very subtle shimmer to it - not sparkle or glitter though - and its lovely for evening makeup or in the summer.

    I bought mine a while ago and its still going strong, I think its brilliant value for money and a great quality powder too.


  3. I used this last year and can't remember why I didn't buy another one! It lasted ages and I found it set my foundation nicely. I've got the Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder right now, which is great, but I'm tempted to buy this again! Great review :)

  4. @ Happy - You should definitly give it a try hun.

    @ Gloss Galore - Ah thank you hun. I shall have to take a look at that one.

    @ Catherine - Thanks Catherine. We must be alike, both liking the same powders! hehe.

  5. I love this stuff!

    I've been using it personally for around 10 years I'd guess (certainly since my wedding, which was 9 years ago!) and professionally in my kit for about 7.

    I love that its so finely milled, and you can even get away with the traditional pat-on-with-a-puff-dust-off-with-a-brush method of yesteryear, and not look chalky!

    I have transparency neutral 08 in my kit, and don't actually need to have any other colours, its a suit all invisible shade!

    love it love it!

  6. I love clinique powders as well. My favourite is the gentle light powder as well its been my most used powder for years xx

  7. Sounds great! I agree with the messy part hun, im such a clumsy bugger and worry so much it's going to go everywhere! It looks like a big pot! x

  8. I've never tried Clinque's powder.. I want a non-powdery looking powder if that makes sense and this does sound like it just that..

    Thanks so much for your post.. Ima check out the powder..

  9. I use gentle light powder (glow 2) which I love but I cannot find it anywhere anymore. If anyone can give me a tip where I can buy it- be it in the UK, USA, or online I will be eternally grateful. Or a good alternative.
