Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation
Not a favourite
Nice packaging to look at but a bit fiddly, brush too short.
For a few reasons this just wasn't for me:
Tended to dry out my sensitive skin & cause irritation
Patchy coverage - probably because the brush is too small
Colour-wise too light
I have used Bare Minerals for years and much prefer this.
BB cream a better option!!

Lovely finish, but too light
This is a lovely mineral powder. Very light and silky. In texture it is smoother than its main competitor. It is easy to use, lasts all day, and you don't feel as though you are wearing make up at all.
My only concern is that there are no darker shades available. My complexion is not dark, medium at best, but even the darkest shade is only just sufficient. The Clarins consultant agreed. I should also like to have a travel version as the jar is too big for an overnight bag.

A Foundation that Feels like your not wearing any
A beautiful easy to apply powder foundation, I had always used a cream foundation until this was 'Born' last year... it sits beautifully on the skin, i have a few age wrinkles aor laughter lines as i like to call them, and must admit was worried about creases... but there is nothing to worry about with this foundation... it really does just glide on, doesn't feel like your caked up, or look in any way caked, it just covers as and where it should... would not go back to any other foundation after trying this... i actually had this applied to one side of my face in the shop and the difference was transforming.... i then applied the other to make sure i could get a good a result as the representative, well worth the money

After always using liquid foundation, I thought that I would try something different.. This really is the best foundation ever.. It covers like the liquid one does, but is so much lighter on your skin. I will never go back to liquid again... Please don't ever stop making this powder!,
