I know a lot of people that are into mineral powder but I have personally never tried it yet but I will soon. My skin is sensitive and pretty thin so redness shows through but I have chose to use any sort of powder because I’m afraid of allergies or breakouts. Although my redness is not very visible to everyone I am self conscious about it, whether skin is flushed from stress, weather, or even cosmetic procedures, facial redness is often difficult to manage and conceal. Clinique is introducing their first ever mineral treatment powder, Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder. The new product is aimed at treating redness, its a loose powder with treatment benefits.
Per the press release, this powder contains a patent-pending complex rich in natural anti-irritants. Under the care and cover of this unique mineral treatment, skin “keeps its cool” while helping to keep visible redness at bay. The precise yellow shade of this creamy powder has been custom-created by Clinique to blend seamlessly into the skin, instantly helping to neutralize the look of redness and providing a more even skin tone. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin, including skin experiencing Rosacea, this master of disguise is really a treatment at heart. The brush used with this powder was developed using the unique Anti-Bacterial Technology to help protect the brush from the growth of mold, fungus and bacteria.
The Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder retail for $32.50 and will be available February 2009 at Clinique counters nationwide and Clinique.com.
I have yet to try this product but I will soon and will be back to post my review!

The Key Players
A new patent-pending formula of Caffeine and extracts of Magnolia Bark, Poria Cocos (mushroom) and Citrus Grandis Peel (grapefruit) work to visibly calm redness. Formulated with natural minerals including Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Potassium, Instant Relief Mineral Powder helps absorb excess oil while a unique processing technology ensures it is gentle and comforting to the skin. This formula also contains Vitamin E, a well-known antioxidant. As with all Clinique makeup brushes, the brush used with this powder was developed using the unique Anti-Bacterial Technology. This breakthrough technology helps protect the brush from the growth of mold, fungus and bacteria.
Behind The Scenes
Using an advanced double-processing technology borrowed from the pharmaceutical industry and never before used by Clinique, each powder particle is suspended in air while uniformly treated with a combination of natural minerals and anti-irritation ingredients. This process makes sure each particle is treated with an even amount of key ingredients. The next step is to use an ultra-rotor machine which compresses the powder into uniform platelets for an incredibly creamy texture and optimal lay down on the skin. The unique shape of these platelets allows the powder particles to fit tightly together like puzzle pieces creating an exceptionally smooth finish and even, natural-looking coverage. Another important benefit of creating uniform platelets is to ensure all edges are refined and smooth so the powder is gentle and comforting to the skin.
Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder is conveniently packaged for easy application and is perfect for touch-ups throughout the day. To use, gently shake closed jar to sift powder onto tray. Dip anti-bacterial brush into powder, tap off excess, then sweep over face. To be used alone, under or over makeup.
