In Our Makeup Bag: Clarins Color Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder

What It Is:
Clarins Color Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
Correcting powders have always puzzled me. How does a powder, that seems white or translucent when swatched, work to reduce redness, illuminate tone and color-correct imperfections? Well, I’m always up for trying something new and decided that the Clarins Color Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder would be a fun tester! In this particular powder “the beige and peach duo evens and illuminates while the pink and mauve bring a touch of freshness and radiance.”
How To Use It:
Face powder is face powder, and there is no special secret to application, but Clarins does have a suggested use: “Take a small amount of powder on the brush and apply a light veil over the face and neck, for long-lasting, velvety-smooth make-up.” That’s really all there is to it; swirl around a fluffy brush and buff into skin. I like to apply this after all my foundation and other powders.
CC Rating: A+
Like I said, I was skeptical going into this. I didn’t believe that a translucent powder could make a difference to my complexion. Radiance is the perfect word for the effect this powder has on your skin; it makes my skin look like it’s glowing from within! I’ve paid very close attention to my face before and after application of the Clarins Color Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder and it really gives such a soft-focus look.
This compact has the same claims as Guerlain Meteorites, however, I think the Clarins version works a million times better and retails for about half the price. That’s a pretty sweet deal! And not to mention, it’s super visually appealing — a fun, pixelated pattern housed in a shiny golden case.
I can’t find a single fault with the Clarins Color Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder. It’s not an essential item, but it will certainly up the ante in your makeup routine!
