clinique redness instant relief mineral powder

I have been using this on and off for about a month now. This being Clinique's new Redness Instant Relief Mineral Powder ($32.50).

I have redness, well, all over my face, but mostly around my nose and chin. This totally takes care of any issues my foundation doesn't. You can apply it under your makeup or over or both. I do apply it under on the days I use my mineral makeup, but on the days I use a liquid foundation, I use it on top. My thinking on that is, if you put a powder on and then a liquid you are asking for cakey-ness. Sometimes I mix it in with the mineral veil at the end. You can also use it throughout the day for touch-ups. I'm not a touch-up kind of person so I haven't tried it for that. Once my makeup is on in the morning that is pretty much how it stays, unless I'm going out later.

The container is ginormous and will last you forever....well, not forever but darn close. The only negative that I found is with the brush. It sheds like no ones business and there is not much to it. I use one of my other brushes for mineral makeup. I actually threw the brush that came with it away.

I got my mom and her friend using this as well. My mom swears that this is possibly the best thing ever invented. She has the same redness issues that I have....I guess I should say I have the same redness as her. Either way, if you have redness from having sensitive skin or even Rosacea, this might just be what you are looking for.....just not the brush.

Here is what Clinique says about the powder:
Unique mineral treatment measurably reduces redness on contact. It's lab-certified. Under its care and cover, visible redness and broken capillaries virtually disappear-instantly and for hours. Patent-pending formula helps skin "keep its cool." Oil-free, talc-free. With anti-bacterial brush. Appropriate for skins with mild-to-moderate Rosacea or reactive redness.

You can find the Redness Instant Relief Mineral Powder at any Clinique counter or online at clinique.com.
