Love this powder and will probably keep using it forever, HG for sure! Use it for setting my foundation or just on my skin for the days when I don't feel like using any foundation at all, looks and feels superb on my skin.
I am very happy with this powder. I have this in 20 clair and use it to set my makeup. There is quite a bit of product in the container and it will last quite a while. I am a NC 25.
This is the only makeup product that I will ever consider repurchasing. It is light, smooth, silky, translucent. Keeps ur foundation on the whole day. JUST LOVE IT.
Besides, it comes in a big jar, and comparing the price of this product to others in grams...it is actually not that expensive. WORTH BUYING.
One word...Amazing!!! I recently purchased Vitalumiere Moisture Rich Radiance Foundation and just did a review on that and this is an awesome combination!!!!!!!!!! The texture is silky and feels like a dream on!!! I would absolutely repurchase. Hands down the best loose powder I have owned!
I received this product as a gift.
Of course I love the packaging. Of course I love the texture. The colour is a bit off on my skin, although it is the lightest shade -- but it is heavenly on application so I will make it work.
I think the jar is so big that I will use this for a long time especially because I have so many loose powders already.
This is my favorite powder I use the sponge that comes with it and it just leaves my face looking flawless. I have tried using this product with a brush but it doesn't give the flawless look. Another great product from Chanel...
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!
A superior must have loose podwer that feels like no other I´ve tried..
I got this in 50 Péche which is a perfect match for my NC25, I´ve always hated loose podwer because they made me look like a ghost whereas this one just add luminosity and perfection to my skin, it has little shimmer when you see it on the pot but dissapears once on the face.
HG! I think everybody should try it! It´s very important to find your match colour though I think this one would suit NC20-27
I generally hate loose powder form products as they are messy. I'm still quite messy with this, but I'm truly in love with this.
It sets my fdt well and helps my fdt stay on my skin looking nice longer. FYI, I'm curently using MUFE HD Primer under CdP liquid fdt. It doesn't settle into fine lines but it will settle into a deep line - I have one under my right eye and jeez, I'm in my early 20s only. Anyway, it doesn't irritate or dry out my cheeks like the Becca one. It controls shine at my T-zone pretty well too, which can get oily sometimes. Touch up isn't necessary and ofc, I'd look better if I do so - I only blot and re-apply loose powder. Since this is clumpsy to bring out jsut to touch-up/ travel purposes, occassionally I touch-up lightly with my powdr fdt (Vitalumiere Eclat, also from Chanel) and hmmm, the oilies seem to come back quicker.
The powder itself is finely milled and it makes my skin looking so soft and smooth yet light and toucheable. I can't say this is completely matte... When I use this on top of my CdP liquid fdt, it looks matte as it made my fdt looking less shimmery. I'm not sure if it's because when I apply the powder with a brush, some of the shimmer particles are swiped off. However, when used on bare skin, my skin looks healthily glowy.
Honestly, not much coverage here and I don't think you should expect much from a loose powder.
I have this in #20 clair (translucent 1) and it's a good match for me. I've neutral fair skintone though probably leaning towards the cool side. I'm usually the lightest shade in most of the Japanese brands (like I10 with Cle de Peau) and I'm #10 Albatre in Chanel's Teint Innocence.
The scent with the powder is strong when in the jar and you can still smell it when you're applying the powder. However, once it's done, you can hardly detect the scent. Therefore the scent doesn't bother me at all, especially it doesn't cause irritation or breakouts or whatsoever after 3 months of continuous usage.
Going to the price, the initial investment is a bit expensive but for the quality and quantity, I think this pdt well worths the price tag. It does what it has to do and it comes in a generous 30g amount. Most h/e brands loose powder of similar price range have way less product than Chanel's. When actually compared to other h/e brands, Chanel's cheap, lol. Good buy for me and will definitely re-purchase.
I got this in shade #3 at the Paris duty free for around $40 US three years ago. I use it as a powder foundation over my sunscreen and moisturizer. The shade is perfect for my NC45 DDD/GGG complexion and doesn't chalk me out as a lot of other loose powders do, as most aren't formulated to be "translucent" on us darkies. This one is truly translucent - it mattes down the oilies I get from applying sunscreen and gives me a matte glow. You an't even tell I am wearing powder - I just looked "finished." :asts all day - don't need to reapply. It came with a little puff that I never use - instead I apply the bare minimum on my Shu 18R and buff it in. I started using it this summer and it's going to last forever, I can tell.
