I'm a beginner at influencing the world and I know how critical this stage I'm in now is; one little mistake and my career as an influencer would come to its end. As I'm a beginner with a low budget, I have to do everything on my own; from choosing the photoshoot sights, to doing the makeup. When I was planning on becoming an influencer, I'd known that there would be major problems, and to point one out, my face was not exactly perfect. I still have breakouts and cystic acnes here and there and the overall complexion of my skin looks a little smudged due to the acne scars left from puberty breakouts.
I knew from the start that this is an issue that must be dealt with and I have been working on the overall looks of my skin from the very start, but most products were harsher than what I expected them to be and caused irritation and redness, worsening the situation than it already was. When I noticed this whole thing has been doing more bad than good, I switched to makeup and after a while I found the one thing I needed, Clinique's blended face powder and brush. It completely covered my acne scars and blackheads, making my skin look smooth and perfect.
Unlike most products I had tried before, Clinique's blended face powder and brush never caused irritation nor additional breakouts, and to tell you why, we're going to go through this face powder's ingredients which are Talc, Zinc Stearate, Magnesium Carbonate, Kaolin, Squalane, Isopropyl Myristate, Tetrasodium Edta, Potassium Sorbate, Chlorphenesin, [+/- Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Mica, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Ultramarines (Ci 77007), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742), Carmine (Ci 75470), Ferric Ferrocyanide (Ci 77510)] .
Talc or talcum powder is a mineral used in a wide range of products from baby powder to eye shadows. Main usage of this mineral is to absorb moisture, soften and smoothen the product, impede caking and cause make up to be opaque.
A fine powder with a white color and silky to the touch, zinc stearate is mainly used for lubricating, thickening and improving the final look of the product. You can find zinc stearate in eyeliners, eye shadows, facemasks, lipsticks, face powders and foundations. It flows pretty good and doesn't cake while making the whole mixture silky.
Also, to figure out how well Clinique's blended face powder and brush is doing, we may take a look at its reviews. Based on verified customers' reviews, 91% recommend using this product and based on 807 reviews, customers have given this product 4.5 out of 5, indicating that most of the customers have been very satisfied with this purchase. Some customers claim they didn't need to use pressed powders after purchasing Clinique's blended face powder and brush as it fixes everything with no problem. In another group of reviews, people have declared Clinique's blended face powder and brush doesn't make their face look dry, neither does it appear obvious unlike other brands they had used before.
And to end it all, here's a few reasons why you should choose Clinique's blended face powder and leave everything else aside. For starters, it comes with a brush itself! Second, the whole package including the brush is priced 31$; Clinique has gone out of its way and priced it ultra-fairly. And lastly, it's paraben free, phthalates free, and has no additional fragrance, ensuring your skin's health.
