Love it so far! So airy and light and smooth feeling on your face! Also smells nice and lasts forever. I might try Clinique's blended face powder after I'm out... heard alot of great reviews on it and it's sooo much cheaper! Hopefully it would work well with my other makeup.
I love this loose powder. Leaves skin looking completely matte, looks excellent in photos! It really sets make up perfectly. This is now one of my make up bag essentials, don't think I'd buy another loose powder again!
If you're worried about the price, don't. I bought my powder months ago and it doesn't even look like I've made a dent, will last ages!
This powder is wonderful! It is talc/nylon based but it is very finely milled and has some treatment ingredients (lysine, magnesium, boron) as well as mineral pigments. It is not totally matte and it gives the perfect satin/matte finish. It has a faint fresh scent to it. The powder does even out the skin tone and has minimal coverage. I wear this on my skin and nothing else on many days. The nylon really allows the powder to adhere to the skin and keeps you fresh for the whole day. It is pricey ($52 for 30g) but considering how long it lasts it's worth it; the jar is HUGE. Keeping that in mind my sales lady gave me 2 extra puffs to have on hand because I find that washing the puff really does not work. I plan to replace it every few months. If you wear powder every day and you want something more luxurious give this a try! Side note: The sifter can be lifted up and the jar can be refilled later on if you want to save your beautiful jar for some other powders in your collection.
I'm a PPP, so I bought the Clair, which is Translucent 1. I have dry skin with neutral to pink undertones. This powder is fantastic; I love it! It creates a beautiful halo effect on your face and it effectively mattifies my foundation. I highly recommend this powder. I use it in the T-area after applying my Laura Geller Fair balance and brighten. Your skin will look flawless!
I use the Clair - I use the lightest shade in Chanel powder foundations, and Clair is a great match. The powder is very finely milled, and silky to the touch, making it ideal to set makeup. It's not a heavy powder. If you're looking something more opaque and heavier, I'd suggest Nars loose powder.
I love love this loose powder and it stays put for such a long time. It's super silky and soft too. AND it lasts a long time! It lasted me for about 2 years of daily use.
I have it's puff and it's smell though. eeyyk!
I wouldn't purchase again because there are probably other products that have the same quality but cheaper, and does not smell icky!
Super silky finish and adds a beautiful glow, however the LIGHT is just too light for my skin color, and the next shade down was too dark, and I'm not up for trying to mix loose powder to make a match!
I have clear normal to dry skin and have been using this for 10 years.
This is one of my favourite HG loose powders.
Iíve tried it in the translucent and natural shade and find both work well with my yellow undertoned skin.
The powder is soft and super fine that it glides on the skin feeling weightless, smooth and breathable.
It provides a light to medium coverage and flawless matte finish and leaves my skin with an even, and natural complexion. Also, it manages to enhance my paleness without making me look washed out or ghostly. In fact, it somehow makes me look healthier and more ethereal at the same time without looking cakey. Iím really pleased with how it sets my liquid foundation perfectly when applied with the puff it comes with or a powder brush. Unlike most loose powders, it distributes fairly evenly because itís so fine.
The powder is ok for my normal to dry skin. Itís not drying as long as itís applied to a cleansed and moisturised face.
I like the packaging because the perforated inner lid helps keep the powder inside the jar which is practical when travelling and keeping in your handbag.
While this does hold up longer than you would expect most powders to do, I could use a touch up by afternoon. However, I donít know of any powder that doesnít need re-applying. Furthermore, although itís expensive, I will repurchase it again in the future as itís high quality, a little goes a long way and it lasts a few years.
I've been using this in 20-Clair for about 1 year and I think it is the best loose powder I've ever owned!
My makeup never completes without it. This powder makes my skin look so smooth and flawless.
It gives a matte finish, which lasts almost all day even though my face has some oily areas. No reapplication is needed unless I work out or something!
At first this product seemed pricey but, hey, it would last years since it requires only a small amount to do its job and comes in a pretty good-sized case.
Only one complaint I have with this product, though, is its puff. I don't like its quality compared to that of the powder--its surface is pretty rough (and it worsens when washed), so it not only doesn't feel nice on the face when applied but also doesn't distribute the powder evenly.
So I would recommend using a better puff or a Kabuki brush for this product.
Overall, this is a great and reliable product, and I will definitely buy it again!
Im on my 2nd pot in 8 yrs now.
I use clair on my nw15 skin.
I reuse the puff that comes with the pot untill its washed out.
Then ask for replacements from the chanel counter for free.
IT leaves my skin oilfree and adds a little colour.
