This product works great as a setting powder, the only downside to this product was that it turns orange if you don't apply it evenly (I'm a beige 20) and also the price, hate that I'm so inlove with this product but it costs too much.
Very surprised at the high rating on here. Does not control oil. Does not work as a setting powder. Will not hold your foundation in place. Medium coverage. Not long lasting. Poor color selection.
I was looking for an oil control powder foundation that would be quick and easy to apply this summer, that also had added spf. This fit the bill nicely.
#10 Beige is a perfect match for my NC15 skin.
Makes skin look smooth and velvety. Good oil control. Medium coverage when applied with included sponge.
This has surpassed my previous favorite, Nars Powder Foundation, because this has better coverage, better oil control, better color choices, feels softer and finer in texture, and looks like velvet on skin. I use this powder alone (no liquid foundation underneath) and the finish is natural, soft and satin-matte. Yes, it's expensive, but I really like it. So I'll buy again. :)
I love this. I wish I didn't because it costs a small fortune. I use it over foundation and it makes any foundation (drug store or high end) look lovely. Very finely milled (slightly messy), don't need much...simply pretty.
Hate how much I love this due to the price and not being able to find it cheaper online... The SA sold me on this and I have not seen a better foundation compact since. Great coverage, smoothes on easily. Very clean makeup that doesnt make you break out and is great for combination skin.
I bought this yesterday and I really love it. I purchased 74 Ambre and it blends perfectly into my skin. It's so light and natural looking. And I love that I can carry it in my purse. I use it as a foundation, but the sales lady said that I could also use it as a touch up powder. It comes in a sleek shiny black case with a velvet pouch. The sponge that comes with the product is ok, but I highly recommend purchasing Chanel's blending brush #7 for a more flawless application. (The sponge is actually good for using as a concealer on problem spots of the face.)
I did a lot of research on this product. I read great reviews on this product, so I purchased it. I got 30 beige for yellow undertone. The color is perfect, same color as mac studio fix powder NC 35. When I did my makeup I couldn't Believe how little of amount goes along way! The coverage is beautiful and it definitely had great full coverage without the powder look!! My face looks flawless and my big pores are less visible. I would recommend this product to anyone, also it stays in place and it last throughout the day!! The mirror is nice and big too!!! Love you chanel
I really like this powder! Its very silky on the skin and really just blends into your skin after you apply it so it doesn't leave you looking powdery! I gives light-medium coverage, I have the lightest shade (10) and it matches me pretty well for about NC10 skin tone range. The packaging is really pretty and sturdy and sleek which I like.
I gave it a 4/5 because the shade could be a bit more neutral (I feel like they have straight up yellow or pink but not anything neutral!) and I wish they offered refill sponges and I also wish the sponge that it does come with was dual sided with a velvet side, since the powder is so expensive I was expecting a better quality sponge. This is partly why I dont want to repurchase because there are cheaper alternatives (like clinique or lancome) and I can buy refill applicators for the others and not my chanel powder.
I bought this on a whim one evening when I stopped by the Chanel counter "just to look," and I am very happy I did!
It was the end of the day when I stopped by, and I am sure I looked pretty raggedy, but after the Chanel lady put the powder and some wonderful lip gloss on me, I looked fresh and glowy!
I just love this stuff. I keep it in my purse all the time now so I can keep myself looking polished!
I am a MAC NC 20 I think, and the #12 Beige Rose is perfect on me. I also love that it adds extra sun protection.
This review is for the reformulated version of this product - Double Perfection Lumiere
I have this in the shade 10 beige. It is slightly too dark and too yellow. I wish Chanel had neutral shades and lighter shades, say an 05. Nevertheless, I use this almost every day.
I have rosacea and have significant redness on my cheeks and nose, moderate redness on my chin, and just a little on my forehead. When my foundation starts to wear off in those areas, this does a pretty good job for touching up.
This does seem to get kind of sticky from skin oils rather quickly so I need to use blotting sheets with it more frequently than I would wish. On the other hand it never really has that super dry powdery look.
It comes in a sleek shiny black Chanel compact with a velvet pouch to protect it from scratches, and to protect your purse from stray powder. I like that the well for the sponge is separate and ventilated, but I wish there was an option to use a puff instead. I am not a fan of the included sponge unless I want to lay it down in an extremely heavy layer - for instance if I have accidentally rubbed all the foundation off the tip of my nose. Instead I picked up the brush that it is intended for the Hourglass ambient powders. It's a perfect size to hit the pan on this product and applies and blends it very nicely. If I have a blemish that has overcome its concealer, I dab a little of this on with a fingertip and tap it a few times with that brush.
It is Chanel so of course it is not cheap, but I've been using it for a couple months and haven't hit pan yet so I think it's reasonable. I chose that I would repurchase and that is true so long as I don't come across something better!
