Time Trial: Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF15

Have you noticed that when a person whips out a Clinique lipgloss, their bathroom or make-up bag mirrors a Clinique beauty counter?

Managing to secure a loyal following, Clinique have developed a reputation for gentle yet effective high-end products.

New developments for the cosmetic and skincare heavyweight are always highly-anticipated.

The Transcribery had the chance to catch up with Clinique for a sneak peek of their up-and-coming products last week.

My favourite was their Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF15 which is their Superbalanced liquid foundation developed into a powder form.

Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF15, $68

You can build the coverage to the level you want from sheer to medium.

I was surprised by the latter seeing as I’ve only ever experienced powder make-up with a really sheer “did that even do anything?” finish.

Pop it open and you’ll find a good size mirror on the reverse of the lid, an anti-bacterial brush and a dial.

Turning the dial clockwise shaves off the make-up for the brush to pick up.

Keep turning to loosen up as little or as much make-up as you need to get the coverage you want.

The best part about this number is the dial only releases as much powder as you need so there’s less wastage and far less mess.

It’s also great because you can use this powder as a complimenting finish to liquid foundation or work a bit more in on its own to leave a medium coverage.

Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF15, $68, is out tomorrow and will be available at Clinique counters nationwide.
