It has been a while since I felt compelled to write a review on anything but when the SA at Barneys tried this on me today, I immediately knew that this is HG material. I have been happily using Banane for years. The quality of LeClerc's powders are indisputable and Banane sets my makeup perfectly and naturally. The color Banane disappears onto my skin which, in a loose powder, is a remarkable quality. Parme, on the other hand, makes a visible difference. Not that you can see it once it's on but my skin looks markedly brighter and porcelain-like with Parme. I was afraid that it was going to be too pale for my skin tone. I am fair but not extraordinarily so (Sisley 01 Ivory, Cle de Peau Beige) and Parme simply looks divine!

COLOR: Very pale, cool-toned lilac. More blue in this than pink. No visible shimmer.
TEXTURE: Sheer, light, talc-y. Blends in well but might look off on the wrong complexion. It's way more pigmented than you'd assume.
SCENT: Kind of like baby powder mixed with old-fashioned violets. It's a pretty fragrance and doesn't linger.
IMPRESSIONS: Use a very small amount if you're using this all over because it can dramatically lighten your skin and make it look like you're wearing a kabuki mask. Spritz with a fine mist of water or a facial spray to melt the powder into your skin and make it more luminous. But used extremely sparingly, this does brighten up my complexion without looking fake. I either very lightly dust it all over, buffing it in well, or use it sort of like a subtle highlighter/brightener (cheeks, brows, chin, and a little dab in the inner corners of my eyes).
REPURCHASE?: Possibly as a special treat, but it's not so crucial to my routine that I repurchase no matter what.

Oh this is an other lovely shade from LeClerc!
I all ready had Orchidee which is really nice too! But this is wonderfull!
Ofcourse like all LeClerc powders it smels lovely and they are incredibly fine miled! But this colour makes my skin look sooooo gorgeous! I'm veeeeery pale NW 5/10 so it matches really good with my skin. It makes my skin look really radiant and even. I apply it over my fav. MAC studio fix powder plus (nw15) and it lasts all day long!!! I apply it with my Caron goosedown powderpuff and its just wonderfull!

I had wanted to buy the Azur shade but it was supposedly d/c, so i took a gamble and bought the Parme shade to counteract sallowness in my NW15/20 skin
Got it at a steal in a nondescript pharmacy at Champs Elysees for only 24 euros(it costs 82 SGD!)
I had thought it too chalky-looking at first (I can look like Casper the ghost wearing it on its own), but after blending it UNDERNEATH my compact foundation, i get the most ethereal, amazing glow. It has gd coverage (funny that it should come from a normal loose pwder, but it DOES cover in nice way), and controls the oilies. Even when i perspire(and I live in humid Singapore) it somehow manages to look like i don't have powder on, just nice poreless skin with none of that icky yellow undertones.
I always reach for this when i want a porcelain look. It also makes the pink blushers come alive cos it cancels out unwanted yellow-ness.
I'm currently on AHA peels for my acne, and get a bit of that sunburnt look all various parts where i OD-ed on the medication. And though Parme is a light lavender, it cancels out the ruddiness.
I may want to try Everyday Minerals Sky Blue corrector (i imagine this to be a concentrated version of Azur) mixed with Parme to get more blue in my powder. Somehow, the blue just makes my pink blushers look more lavender and gives a gorgeous glow that seems to come from within.
All in all, definitely HG status for me.

Parme is a white-based mauve powder that will brighten pale to light skin tones. The white-mauve shade diminishes sallow (unbalanced yellow) tones in the complexion, leaving a neutral, porcelain finish. When brushed on lightly, this powder will look natural in any light. A heavier hand will create a dramatic, moonlit evening look. I would recommend this shade to any neutral to cool PPP that covets porcelain skin. For deeper skintones wishing to neutralize sallowness, I recommend Orchidee, which is a pink mauve without the white base.
The main ingredients of T.LeClerc's powders are talc, corn starch and zinc oxide. When applied, the finish is softly matte with light coverage, but the matte finish can be easily transformed to a natural glow by gently blotting the face with a damp towel after powder application. Further glow enhancement can be acheived by lightly spritzing the face with a 50/50 mix of toner and water. Update 11/29/06: I've been doing a 1:1 blend of this with Coty Airspun Translucent and this mixture has become my HG of HG's loose powder! Perfect, flawless finish and long-lasting. I buff it in with my The Body Shop powder brush and I have the perfect porcelain finish.

I must rave about this powder. First of all I am a loose powder fan. I do not wear foundation, so loose powder is my *foundation* and a very important part of my daily routine. My skin is medium, yellow-orange, very warm. I wanted something to neutralize the yellow in my skin and TLC Parme Loose Powder does the trick. It is a very pale lavender colored powder with a bit of shimmer. I don't use it by itself, I mix it with other powders. Love it1

Parme is a very light lilac colored face powder. It is intended to neutralize yellow skin tone. I use this in the winter months and it make me feel so glam! T. LeClerc powders have wonderfully light texture and is great for acne prone girls. I would repurchase this powder again.

This is the powder I use for winter, if I feel very...dramatic or a bit gothy. It makes a perfect porcelain finish. After using Becca, it feels a bit chalky, but is so much better than anything else. An interesting shade.

A pretty, light lavender powder... It seems to brighten my face when I am feeling pretty worn out and fatigued. Same finely-milled, smooth consistency as the other powder!
