We’re not huge fans of the mineral trend in general–there’s just something about the cakey feel of many mineral-based cosmetics that rub us the wrong way. But the new Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder may convert us. The caffeine-based powder does truly–and miraculously–reduce redness on contact and is suitable for most skin tones. We use it over our tinted moisturizer to cover redness around our nose, particularly helpful during this wretched allergy season. We’ll also use it on top of our blush if we put a little too much on. It feels natural, our skin breathes and never gets flaky. We can only imagine what it does for sunburns–a must on our next beach trip!
Clinique Mineral Treatment Powder is $32.50 and available online and in most major department stores.
