This is the moisturizer I have used for years. Once I found it, I've never used anything else. Because it works on my dry skin! Nothing else ever did, and I tried many. So, I am a lifetime user!

I have always used a liquid foundation from Clinique also. And, I was very pleased. But, the last time I went in to buy makeup...the clerk showed me this. And, I guess I was in a "let's try something new" mood. I bought it, and tried it, and I'm sold!

Here is the information that went along with it...
NEW Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15
"Smart" technology keeps dry areas comfortable, oily areas less shiny. No-waste grinder dispenses skin-defending vitamins with each twist. Fresh-shaved mineral powder clings evenly to skin. Lasts for up to 8 long hours. Includes antibacterial brush.
Skin Types: All
Formula: Loose Powder
Coverage: Moderate
Benefits: Balances combination skin, Long wearing, Mineral enriched, Natural skin-perfecting look, Oil control

Friends, this makeup is great! I love it. I love the coverage, I love how long it lasts, I love how quickly it goes on. I did have to get a big brush...this little one just doesn't cut it. I bought a big, fat brush at the drugstore.

Since I have retired, I am home much more than usual. And, I have a tendency to not bother with makeup and hair and the like. But, this is so quick...there's no reason not to brush it on...add a little blush...and I'm done. Of course, if I am going out, I'll do my eye makeup, too. (Naturally Glossy Mascara by---Clinique, of course)

Just wanted to pass this along because I tend to just stay with products that are tried and true and that I know work...especially when it comes to cosmetics. And, sometimes, there can be new products that are actually better. This one has been for me.

What about you? Do you have products that you feel a loyalty to? Products that you always buy and use? Share, please....

I worked at a Clinique counter while I was in college and that Dramatically Different was THE HOTTEST selling product in all of Estee Lauder's line. Could hardly keep it on the shelf. May have to give the powder a try.

Well...Since I worked for years selling this product! I am thrilled you, too, are a believer! I have to tell ya. I get all my make-up FREE and treatment, too.(another vendor) BUT...I still BUY Clinique 3 Step is the best! And 7 Day Scrubb! My skin is old, but it still glows! :O)

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll have to give it a try.

Thanks for the info. I do not wear liquid makeup so I am always looking for a powder with good coverage. The mineral makeup I use now does not last as long or cover as well as I want it to. I used Clinique years ago but maybe I will splurge and go back to it long enough to try this!

It's been a long time since I have been loyal to one product. I seem to be bouncing around allot lately.
I don't seem to like anything on my face anymore. I think I am going to try this, I am looking for something to love. Mascara sounds good too! Thank you for sharing this with me.

I'm going to have to try that powder makeup. I wondered about it, but it's good to get a review! Thanks!

I'm a loyal Clinique girl, too! I haven't seen this though; may need to check it out! My favorite Clinique product is their Take the Day Off. It's the purple eye makeup remover. Nothing else removes eye makeup as well as this!

My sister-in-law told me about Shesheido face products over 20 years ago. She has beautiful skin, so I was sure I wouldn't get wrinkles if I used it too. Guess what, I still get them! I do still use it though even though it's quite pricey. I've tried other brands, but none are quite the same! I need to try your mascara. I have tried so many different kinds, and they all make me look like a skunk! I should give your powder a try.
Thanks, Tonja!

I have used Clinique for years - I have very sensitive skin and once I found something that I wasn't allergic to, I stuck with it. I do not like the feel of liquid makeup, so never use it. I used to look fine without it, but my aged face needs something - I have tried other powders but have not been happy - will have to give this a try.

I'm not devoted to any one product...I'm always trying different things. I do like Olay products though.
Thanks for the info, I may just have to try some of your favs!

That sounds wonderful! I love when you suggest things like this. I will be looking for it.
