Big waste of money! I got this as a christmas gift from a loved one. I was really happy about this product because the packaging was so pretty. I am NC 25 and the Chanel SA recommended Shade 30 Naturel for me. It really didn't go well on my skin, my skin appeared very pale and red at the same time. It made my nose redder (my nose is incredibly red) and I pretty much looked like Rudolf walking with two legs.
I don't recommend this! But then again, I haven't found the perfect loose powder yet! My search continues!
Expensive, stinks, made me look like a ghost is pictures, didn't do anything good to my skin. Don't even know what's the purpose of this powder...
I regretted buying this because it is not suitable for my skin type. I have oily skin and this does not control the oil on my face. The powder is indeed fine and smells good and the amount will last a long time, but unfortunately just not for me. I've switched to MAC blot powder and that is incredibly oil-absorbing.
I bought this in Translusent 1 20 clair ,it is really finely-milled powder and it sets my makeup very well. I love the semi-matte finish and so far seems control my oily T-zone well (I also have the pressed version of it which is all good except failing to control my oily forehead).The package is nice but huge,the sponge is not as ugly as other ones Chanel attached ( really think they should improve their pad or sponge).Anyway,overall it's a fantastic setting powder
Lovely finishing touch! It lasts all day and makes skin looking flawless. I would never-ever buy anything else, but this powder!
It is hard for me to get my HG Laura Mercier here, and with two weeks to go before my next trip to the LM counter, I ran out of LM. So I bought this powder in 20 Clair and I have to say it is Meh. No comparasion to the LM when it comes to keeping oil at bay- I had to use three blotting sheets at noon, normally I use one- the color oxidizes on me slightly (I am NC15) and it is just nothing to write home about. Mad because I bought this and now have to buy the LM again right away- I was hoping the Chanel would be good enough to use for a few months before replacing the LM. I'll probably keep and mix, or try to use it in the summer when I am slightly darker Shame because the packaging is absolutely perfect. It's a two lippie product but I give it three for the packaging. Seriously.
This is another great Chanel product that I love. I would say this is by far the best loose powder I have tried. Not only it is smooth, natural and sheer, it disappears into your skin and not look cakey. It sets any foundation brands to give you a flawless and luminous glow to your face. Face remains matte all day without touch up. Before this I was using Poudre Lumiere Perfecting Powder in 01 Aube which I think they have discontinued and replaced with this Poudre Universal Libre. I am using 20 Clair now which is perfect for my fair skin. I am glad nothing has changed and it is still the same perfect loose powder I have loved so much. It seems to take forever to finish it but if I ever did, I will definitely buy it again.
This is my HG loose powder For some reason Tranfulcent 1 and 2 both work to me. It is matte but not dry at all. It is expensive but the huge container lasted my a year! I am on my third container now.
Fantastic. It gives a matte finish without making my skin look dry - i have dry skin and this works surpisingly well.
I got mine for £25.72 which is reasonable considering it is one of the biggest makeup brands and i was especially surprised when i opened it, it was huge! It comes with a lot and a cute little powder puff though i prefer using a brush.
Normally when i buy expensive makeup they come in tiny little dinky things for the money and you dont get much but the container is large - not exactly portable in my handbag! - but you get a lot for your money.
Looks great on top of foundation. Matte and natural finish, and dry skins can still use it too. Really good, will buy again x
Very fine, absorbs oil well, huge jar which lasts quite awhile. A tad bit expensive.
