Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation
My Favorite Makeup!
I want to address, first off, the complaints about the packaging and "losing" powder. This should never be an issue. First of all, remove the brush from the surrounding lid. You will have a Kabuki type brush. Second, do not throw away the sifter. I fear this is where everything goes wrong. If you leave the sifter between the brush and the loose powder foundation there will be no loss of powder. If anything, you may need to remove the sifter from time to time, as the powder foundation can become compacted. You can loosen up the powder, pop the sifter back in and keep on going. When finished, put the brush back in the lid until it snaps, then screw the lid back on. Voila!
I love this makeup! It goes on smooth, wears long. It is a buildable foundation so if you need more coverage, no problem. I am very, very fair and usually have trouble finding foundation that is light enough. Usually powder foundations "muddy" when applied to my face, but I purchased the lightest shade, "Cream", and it stays true to color! Don't hesitate to try this fabulous makeup...you won't regret it!
I love the line SO much in fact, I'm going to open a spa in conjunction with Clarins!

please upgrade the packaging
Worst packaging for the best product ever! At least 1/3 of the powder wasted due to the brush fitted cap.. and brush is useless, even if I use the brush it containes too much amount of product impossible to take away.
Really the best powder I've ever tried in terms of coverage, smoothness, and naturality, but I do think to put the product into another bottle..
Please upgrade the packaging.

Skin illusion loose powder foundation
I love, love, love this powder it's so easy and fun to use, all you have to do is brush it on and you are set. If you can go into a store to get match please do, the colors are not really shown on line. I thought I was the 110 honey but the 112 amber match my skin perfectly . This powder works nicely with the new bb cream as well as the foundation . This is a very nice powder foundation!

fantastic product. ridiculous packaging
this powder gets an A++. Amazing texture, great natural looking coverage that lasts throughout the day (with no touch ups) and my skin looks better with NO makeup since I'vee started using it. But the bottle/ twisty cap thing is so stupid. I hurt my had every time I open it. It takes up a lot of room in my train box and when I opened it the first time, it was so tight and bulky powder spilled everywhere. Clarins, please work on presenting this in a more user-friendly way.
