I LOVE this product! I usually love almost everything from Cle de Peau! I've used this brand (skin care) since I was 8, and it has yet to let me down!
Best loose powder ever! Very translucent, does not appear cakey or pile up or have powder spots on my face that I have to rub off. Gives a very pretty "porcelain doll" finish! Get lots of compliments, expensive but totally worth it! Also it lasts forever!
Packaging is gorgeous as usual, but due to it's size, it is extremely hard to travel with, will have to find a smaller container or another lose powder to use when traveling.
Obscenely expensive, annoying packaging, strong perfumey smell when the container is first opened, BUT , no other powder rivals the way this one makes skin look. Simply remarkable non-powdery powder. It`s the only powder i`ve found that doesn`t just sit on top of the soft fine vellus hairs on the face which is what makes most powders look powdery. You won`t see a powder particle on your skin- even under a magnifying glass!
(Note to frugal people like myself: once you realize that this is simply the best loose powder you`ve ever used or will likely ever find, repurchase the REFILL only. You`ll save $30 and get the same amount of product which can be transferred into any other powder container you already have. It`s $75 versus $105)
the best loose powder I have ever used. So finely milled and gives the skin a flawless beautiful look- did not give a white cast - beautiful over the CLP refining foundation.
I have this in the old version (square box), and I have to option to choose the newer version (round box) I prefer this one mainly because of the square box, although I don't believe neither the pink powder (old) nor the beige powder (new) will deposit any colour on the skin.
I have in the past tried various so called "transparent" loose powder, yet they all made the face whiter/lighter for an hour or so until face oily/moisture kicks in.
However, like everyone said, this finely milled powder, absolutely does not add any colour over the foundation, but gives the fdn a more finished look. I find the fdn tends to oxidize less with this powder on. It takes away the shine but does not make my dry cheeks appeared cracky.
Best loose powder I've tried (and I've tried a lot of these high ends!). Its very finely milled, give you a natural flush, and makes your skin looks flawless. The older version is square case with pink powders (which I absolutely love the packaging) and the newer version that just came out not long ago is in round case with white powders. I love both and its defintitely worth the price, what't the point of buying 3 cheaper loose powders and never use them up because you don't love it?
Overall I rated it a 4 because I don't think this is the best loose powder i have purchased. Although it is a translucent powder, the powder is pink. The powder is very very finely milled (probably the most finely milled powder I have ever used. the other finely milled powder i have used is La Mer). I am not very sure if I will repurchase it again but I am giving this powder a few more tries before I decide if i will. For now, I much prefer skin colored powder than pink/purple powders!
Beautiful. More so than La Mer. Among my powders, with exception of Sisley and with highway-robbery price aside, I like this one the most. Makes me look very fine. I bought refill only as I have so many empty cute powder tubs.
And as with any l/p, I find it's applied best with MAC 187 (yes, the foundation brush).
I bought this powder along with the silky foundation and the make up base (for pores). The powder is very fine with pink sheen. It looks very pretty just by itself. I wear this on top of the foundation to settle it when I go to work but on my off days I just wear this on top of the make up base which gives very nature and sheer finish but looks very pretty.
I was a bit appalled by the price but you really just need a little bit of this to finish the whole face and I think it will take me years to use this up.
I've used lose powder by shu uemura, chanel, dior, anna sui, and shisheido but by far this one out-performs all of them (maybe not shu uemura which is also very fine and has excellent quality) but i like this one the most due to its pretty pink sheen and the finish.
I have quite fair skin that is suddenly becoming dry (used to have oily skin but i guess that's what happens when you get old.. how sad) but this powder doesn't dry out my skin.
the color is translucent but it gives a flawless almost natural finish. always comes out great in pictures though. traveling is tough with it so i bought the pressed powder; its not as natural, but it is also translucent and good for touch ups on the go! case is twenty usd and refills are eighty! overall i love it.
this powder is good for someone fair & cool tone skin ( also pale) .
the color ( tone )is bit pink tinted.
I am powder mania! and this powder is one of best.
very Sophisticated finished look.not much casual looking I guess.
I use this powder when I go party or dining out.
