Clarins' new mineral loose powder, Poudre Multi-Eclat, has an ultra-fine texture to help create a perfectly flawless look. This lightweight mineral powder is designed to leave a translucent, radiant finish.


I received a mini of this powder in one of the sample boxes. I have already found my Holy Grail loose powder by Clarins, which I adore and not planning to change. But it was a good chance to test this babe, which comes with 3g of the powder and that’s enough.


It has finally become of a normal type, thanks to the food supplements I take. And the results are still there. Sometimes my skin breaks out, usually before the X days. My pores aren’t enlarged, there are some blackheads over my nose. No oily shine, though it can appear in the heat.


Sleek and cute. It’s a see-through casing with a golden top lid. Even my mini has a sifter, so nothing to complain about here. The full size of the product offers 30g of the powder. So much! And, as usual, it comes packed with the branded red box.

The powder comes in 3 shades: translucent light, translucent medium, transparent warm. I have the shade 01 that is the fairest in line. Consistency-wise the powder looks like a baby powder with a pink casting. The aroma is pleasant and airy.

I always use a big brush to apply my loose powders. In general, I apply them over a moisturizer and don’t use any primers or foundations. And here everything is the same. Well, actually in the photo I applied the powder over a primer. I tried wearing it over my naked skin and a foundation. The spending is relatively small.


Over a primer: the product applies patchy and it’s difficult to blend. It has a tendency to stick with pieces and it won’t be ever possible to correct those spots. The adjusting to my skin color is good. The powder accentuates all my skin blemishes - pores, fine lines and creates the effect of flakey skin, even though my skin wasn’t flaking before.

Over a foundation: don’t expect any mattifying properties then. The amount of dry patches becomes less, but the powder makes my foundation appear darker. It gets stuck in the peach fuzz on my face (Do you have it? I do). It feels like my skin is uneven. It doesn’t affect oily shine and throughout the day my skin becomes darker and oily, phew.

Over my nude skin (with a moisturizer): if there is a spot where the moisturizer didn’t soak in, then the powder will quickly find this place and form a patch there. No good mattifying. It doesn’t conceal anything, on the contrary, my skin looks rough and uneven. It accentuates all the blemishes on my skin, creating new ones as well. My skin experiences truly discomforting feelings with this powder on. It thirsts for thermal water.

I received this product in a sample box, but the full size retails for $60 for 30g


1 star. I don’t like this power at all!

Thanks for reading my review! Always choose only the best!!! Smile
