Ever Matte Shine Control Mineral Powder Compact
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jane262 from I just ordered another. That pretty much says it all. At my age, I know what I like, and I tend to be loyal to certain products. I'm cautions about high-end department store cosmetics, because I've seen the financials, and know the mark-ups. However, if I use a product to the very end of the container, it's more cost effective to buy what works than to buy a bunch of stuff that is sub-standard. I use this three ways: Powder over foundation; Light coverage on a no-make-up day; Dip my finger in and blot over a blemish or scar as a cover-up. LOVE IT!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DaVinci from Great powder, not so great colour I really loved the texture and finish of this powder. It went on so sheer and light, did not cake up even after reapplication, gave the skin a healthy glow, helped control oil and shine. I didn't love the slight perfume, but that was minor, and I didn't notice it once it was on my skin. My only real complaint is the choice of colours is very limited. I tried the medium shade and it was too dark, so I tried the lightest shade (transparent opale) and it was way too peachy-orange on my skin. Because of this, I can't wear this powder. Clarins really needs to come up with some more colour options, because no matter how good a product is, if the colour is wrong, you just can't wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KCBABY from Best Blotting Powder Ever! I have written a review of this product before and recently when I tried to find it on a certain department store website it looked as though it had been discontinued. I panicked and called Clarins customer service today 11/13/14 and was relieved to see it was still in stock. Yes. It is THAT good. I am a woman of color (Clarins Everlasting Foundation #117 Hazelnut) and I find the Ever Matte Shine Control in 003 dark is THE BEST compact for shine control/blotting I have ever used on my face. I have combination skin with a super oily t-zone (which has become more balanced thanks to Clarins Lotus oil). What I love about this powder is that it is super finely milled, does not turn ashy on my skin and I can use it in place of loose powder to set my makeup. I have large pores on my nose and it certainly diminishes their appearance. I have purchased this twice and am about to purchase two more as back-up. Clarins, PLEASE do not change the formula or discontinue this product! It is one your best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PTownPrincess from I'm a believer! When Clarins discontinued the shine-stopper compact powder, I was devastated and reluctantly ordered the new ever matte powder. I am continually amazed at the beauty and quality of this product on the skin. It truly makes my skin look and feel better. I appear "air-brushed" and look more alive when I touch up during the day with this powder. It never cakes/builds up or makes my pores look larger - on the contrary, I would swear that it makes my pores appear smaller. The shine control is better than the former formulation as well. Overall, an amazing product. I would say "never change it!" but if they can make it even MORE amazing, okay, go ahead...I won't doubt Clarins motivations again and I will continue to place my orders :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jandi from Nice coverage Transparent fair blends well with my fair skin. I was using cream 104 liquid foundation shade before but it was discontinued. Now using this on top of the loose powder foundation in 104 shade. Great coverage but shine control properties do not last more than 3 hours. I have oily skin and needed to retouch every 3 hours. The compact is hollow in the middle and broke easily when i dropped it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYBeautyJunky from Great powder foundation I don't usually like powder foundations because I think it makes my pores look bigger, but this worked great. I have combination skin, and I've been using this a lot this summer. I didn't initially believe the claim that my face will remain matte all day, but it did a pretty good job of living up to the claim. I layer it over my Hydraquench tinted moisturizer, and use the compact powder over it to keep my face from becoming an oil slick by the end of the day. It's a must if you need to keep your shiny face in check during the summer (especially in the city). Pretty happy with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by aherbie from Finally! This powder is awesome! I've been looking for something that has a touch of color but very sheer to give me that flawless look. I apply a light sweeping mid-morning and then check in the afternoon if I need to apply as well. Can't tell I have it on. I use the new radiance foundation and this is perfect with it. I am fair and very very hard to color match. Thank you Clarins, I've been looking for ages to find something like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tyty from Makes my skin look great! The packaging is so fancy; it makes me feel special when I use it. I normally don't wear foundation, only concealer and this powder. It just makes my skin look nice by blurring my pores and making my skin look natural and not matte. The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't last very long on my oily skin, maybe a few hours. I've used this product for over a year, and it's going strong. However, be careful because if drops, it will shatter into pieces. Just happened to mine.
