Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation
totally wasted money
I was (suddenly) out of my usual brand (more expensive than this one) and as a last minute purchase bought this powder. A consultant recommended "beige" tone as a light one - I asked for a light yellowish color.
A) even though beige is second in the line of colors, it is way too dark brown - I can not use it with my skin tone, it's more like a bronzer than an everyday powder. It looked lighter and more natural in the shop under the fluorescent lights but under the normal light it looks bright yellow.
B) I will be hard pressed to name a more ridiculously and user-unfriendly packaged product. The whole arrangement with the square bottle and the stubby brush is cumbersome and difficult to use. I had an empty jar from Meteorites powder - so I just dumped this one into it. Had to throw away the bottle and the brush. Highly original packaging does not necessarily mean it's comfortable to use.
The result - will need to buy some light colored powder to "dilute" this one. Will be using my own brushes.

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.

Back to stock please
Really leave a smooth feeling after use. Most times I just use a thin layer of loose power foundation and eyebrow pencil and I am done. Easy and fast.
