i do really like this stuff, it looks lovely on, even when applied with a puff (which usually with any other loose powder gives a really heavy look). this sets my makeup well and you get a nice big amount in the pot though it is more expensive than most, even for the size that you get.right now im on accutane and therefore my skin is not its usual greasy self however i dont have dry patches.this powder needs a couple of good presses into the skin with a brush or puff to eliminate shine around the eyes and nose which makes me wonder how it holds up on oily skins...im guessing it doesnt mattify that well. however it gives a beautiful glow and im very happy with my purchase as it suits my current skin type just right.
update: this is hands down now the loose powder that i will stick with until they discontinue it. I only had this revelation when i went on holiday and had to survive without it. This powder gives light coverage that it turns out was essential in my regime for flawless, glowing, healthy, natural looking skin. It sets my makeup and even though my skin type has completely changed since i first bought it (from very dry to now quite oily) i still stick to this. I remember this being very expensive but i reviewed this exactly 2 years ago and have only just noticed that i only have 1/3 left, even though i have been using it every day. i thoroughly recommend this powder!
edit edit: just bought my second one of these. it has lasted over 3 years! its the best ive tried, even for my oily skin. definitely worth the extortionate price because you get so much and it is such good quality.
i got this as a gift. he bought a very light shade for me. i think the lighest one. i have medium deep complexion. (what the hell was he thinking? :D ) anyways. i use this to set concealer under my eyes and it gives me a very special glow. i kinda like it alot. i'm going to buy mufe matte loose powder for my face. i'm definitely keeping this one. i have no idea how much did it cost. but i chose #5 because, come on it's chanel ;P
I absolutely love this powder!!! I bought Translucent 1 after reading the reviews at MAU. It makes my skin flawless, does not cake, and controls shine almost all day. It is very fresh and light looking. Worth the money, and will last a long time.
Love it! I am a loose powder fan - always have been and have tried just about all of them out there. I tried this one b/c Lancome discontinued the photogenic in my color (ivory). Though it is rather pricey ($45), I really do feel you get your money's worth. It is a larger container than others and I find that is goes on smooth and blends in well. I do not wear foundation, just some concealer and then this powder and it makes my skin looks flawless. I will definitely buy again.
This is definetely the best of all, and u don`t even need to chose a certain colour, as the first shade, Translucent 1 doesn`t change the colour of your foundation. I wear it with Double perfection fluid 30 or 40 and i still get the same tanned colour on my skin.
Actually it is highly recommended that you use a lighter shade for the powder. It gives your face a natural glow.I would buy it again and again even if it does lasts forever.
I have this in Clair/Light (Iím NC15/Limpide/Faience). This is a yellow based very finely milled powder. I use a powder brush to set my foundation and sweep just a light dusting. It never looks cakey or chalky. It comes in a huge pot that lasts forever. Should I ever run out I would definitely repurchase.
i've been always using physician's formular mineral loose powder, but it's oil controlling power was very poor.....so i give chanel a try because i 've been using their foundation and the double matte powder for touch up and liked them very much.......i'm pretty happy with their loose powder....it keeps my face shine free for several hours......and great finish.....no heaviness or fine lines after reapplying...it gives a natural glowy finish...i don't even need to use oil blotting papers anymore.......happy happy happy........i'm between NC 30 and NC 35 and i bought natural....prefect match........
Big love, baby!I've recently been clearing out my make-up drawers and ran into this! I've worn it for three days now (I have Translucent 1) and it REALLY looks and wears naturally and keeps my pesky oilies at bay. Prior to Chanel, I used Clinique and this blows it outta the agua! :)
I looooveee this!! I have tried so many loose powders and finally one that looks invisible on me and does not oxidise. It comes in a lovely classic chanel packaging, very classy and well made. I have this in Translucent, although I am a NC15, this peach tone powder blends well with my yellow tone skin. There is a slight shimmer but hardly noticable on your skin, it does give a very subtle glow to you skin and goes on beautifully sheer! My HG loose powder
It's a very good powder.The coverage is very sheer and translucent(I apply it with Chanel's Petit Pinceau) My face looks velvety matte(not dry)and flawless even without foundation or concealer!
