This is really the best i try by now. I am not fan of loose powders and i don't really like powdery look but this one just gives me gorgeous face
My face doesn’t look like have loose powder at all. It’s leaving me a lovely mate finish smooth my skin and my make up last all day long. I just couldn’t stop touching my face all day ..is so soft.
I am MAC 15-20 and I have it in # Light (from a lovely swapper….TY Liz) and when I see it really look to me like flour but ones I apply is GREAT.
I try many powders like La Prairie, T.LeClerc, Caron, YSL, Chanel and so much more, so far this one is the best
This powder is fine but definitely NOT worth the price. For the price I was hoping for some kind of magical effect & was sorely disappointed
This is my HG powder. This powder is so finely milled and very build-able. I love how this sets my foundation because I actually did a experiment today from not setting with my powder. By lunch, my make-up was all over the place (in my lines, in my finger tips, on my cloth...). Also, I like to use this to set my under eye concealer. This powder blends into the concealer so well that after all the foundation and concealer is done, everything blends together. That way you won't get an cakey under eye coverage, or pink spots in certain areas on your face. I use the sponge that came with it, and just gently blot the corner of my eyes for setting. Then use a powder brush to sweep all over my face to blend everything together. Try it! You'll love it!
This has quickly become my holy grail loose powder. Now that I've found it, I cannot imagine living without it. I'm an NC-40 and currently using the the shade "Ray". You can apply this lightly or heavily and the finish will still look airbrushed which goes to show how fine milled this powder is. In the past, I've experimented with other powders such as LORAC, Cle de Peau, Bare Escentuals, and all incomparable to Chantecaille. While I really loved Cle de Peau's quality, I felt like the main ingredient (TALC) severely irritated my skin and caused it to itch and feel uncomfortable. Even though it claimed to be a translucent loose powder, the product still contained a little pink, so if you applied the powder too heavily, you'd get a pinkish cast over your make up. For $99 it was a total waste of my money. Chantecaille is half the price and contains no trace of Talc. The quality is superb if not better and it comes in 3 shades to adjust to your skin. I love the flat but round aluminum container. It really stands out in the make up stash. I usually sift some powder onto the top of the container and swift my powder brush to make sure no product spills over. It comes with a white puff but I find that using a powder brush gives me better results. Unless you're allergic to Bismuth, this powder is a must have and I'd recommend this to anyone who loves a high quality loose powder.
Although the power is great, I always have difficulty getting the powder out of container. I would buy this powder again only if the packaging is updated.
I have tried just about every loose powder out there ladies...yes, even the precious Cle de Peau ~ This is the most natural, light powder I've ever purchased. I have found this to be a "setting powder only". I'm oily & need to touch up w/ Boscia blotting papers around noon. However, if your looking for an elegent, natural - true to color setting powder try this & I don't think you will be disappointed! I'm NC25 & I wear shade "Light"
I absolutely love the radiance and silkiness of Chantecaille loose powder. But the flimsy container is just inexcusably messy. Product spills out every time. This product is to expensive to store in a Ziploc bag! I would give the packaging a zero if I could.
loreal makes a talc free loose powder that is nicer and I don't have to tell you ladies how less expensive it is. I think this was my worse purchase ever - I can see spending $$$$$ on a foundation, not a powder - but I did and I regret that, I should have taken it back because I just don't use it at all - it is just such a mess it's real pain!!!!!
I bought this gorgeous loose powder when a beauty salon in Kentucky had a 50% off sale of their Chantecaille stock back in 2005. I am so glad that I did as it gave me a chance of trying an expensive product that I would have either wise won't.
For reference I am a MMM-GGG (black hair and very dark brown eyes) and use the following foundation shades: GA LSF #8, Sue Devitt 70% Triple Seaweed Gel Foundation Nullarbor Plain, and Chantecaille Future Skin Sand.
I bought this in Ray and I must say it was a perfect shade for me! It didn't oxidize like any of MAC's bases and it gave a light and dewy finish but at the same time made me look polished also. The product itself is very very finely milled and is just all around a pleasure to put on. A few people below has made comments on the packaging, but I didn't have much of a problem with it at all.
I just wish now that I had the common sense to stock up and buy more than one of them, now that mine has run out and would have to buy it at full price again. I love Chantecaille bases and powders and this loose powder is amongst my top 5 of all loose powders.
This is an incredible product, and worth the money. This jar will last forever, and makes my skin look perfect.
I'll likely never buy another loose powder.
My only complaint is the powder sometimes spills over the sides....other than that...perfect. It is so finely milled, it makes Nars loose powder look chunky, and does a wonderful job at controlling oil.
I wear it overtop of Tarte Smooth Operator foundation for a guaranteed perfect skin day.
