 Clinique New DermaWhite powder

I got the sample from a magazine, shade of cream beige may be one to two shades darker than my actual skin tone. The finish quite similar to Chanel White Essentiel Compact Foundation, but with better coverage and superior long-wearing ability.


What Clinique said about this foundation is, ” Petal soft powder makeup instantly brightens. Helps protect with Vitamin C and SPF29/PA+++. Moderate coverage, natural soft-matte finish.”


Derma White Bright-C Powder Makeup provides sheer to medium coverage, it’s very light-feeling, non-powdery, leaving skin natural soft glowing. Fairly pore coverage, powder is quite drying on me but quite long-wearing (test this at home on a cloudy day, the foundation stays fresh all day). Personally I wasn’t sure if I will purchase this because it might be too drying to me.




Practically, I don’t expect whitening effect from  sunbock and makeup, they limited perform but might act as antioxidant in the case. High UVA/B protection is definitely earning bonus marks for Derma White Bright-C Powder Makeup, provides both mineral and chemical sunscreen ingredients. Packaging is not bulky as well, so should be easy to carry around.


Overall I do think this is pretty good, Clinique foundation unexpectedly make me surprise. I never get interested into Clinique makeup, but I changed my mind now.
