Let me start this by saying, this thing is expensive!! About $80 from Nordstroms. The other more expensive powder I can think of is from LaPrarie. But honestly, it goes on like a dream come true! Your skin still looks like skin, if that makes sense lol. The other powder they Guerlain makes is very powdery and dries your skin out. The SA at the counter even told me not to buy it lol and not just to push the sale of the parure gold, but because she knew I'd just end up returning it! The only problem with this is it offers light to medium coverage max. I like to use it alone on days when I only have a second to get ready and I can swipe it on and be out the door looking natural (with help lol). But also alone it does wear off easily and doesnt hold back oil at all on my T-zone. Have to really reapply after I'd say 2-3 hours and Im not even that oily I would say..O and one more thing, didnt last long at all. Hit the pan after three weeks :( but, if you look on strawberry.net you can order the refils for like $40 (keep in mind though you cannot buy the refils at any store, only online)..also a note to my scoring, 4 lippies, minus one for staying power but the rest remain even though the other issues prevail because it just looks so darn good those first 2 hours LOL!

The seller told me this can be used like wet with sponge I tried but not really well cover and not stay long last and not helping for oil control. I used tissue to just tab on my face seems the powder gone :(.
If used with my favarite foundation then follow with this powder it gives nice finishing. So anyway I'll have to use as it is so expensive!!!!

Very expensive, but beautiful powder. It feels so smooth and not cakey at all. I love the texture and finish. It is very pricey though at $87 CDN, but if you're willing to splurge you won't be disappointed! It has a radiant matte kind of finish.

I had the product applied by a Guerlain makeup artist in a department store. Unfortunatelly this foundation is very powdery, I expected something more moist... it does not combine with my skin well and looks very cakey on my face. What is worse it accentuates all the little hair I have so it makes my face look fluffy. Even after few hours it just sits right there enhancing the fluff and my pores. It is a NO NO from me unfortunately.

79-80 USD for a wonderful powder that matches my skin tone perfectly and makes my skin look soft and nice...I say it's worth it!!
At first I was torn between the 02 beige clair and 03 beige natural but after trying on both shades on each side of my face I can finally see that 03 is the winner! It looks natural and makes my skin look radiant compared to the 02 next to it, which also would work on my skintone but it just doesn't look as good as the 03! I like this even more than my MAC skinfinish powder, which used to be my favorite until I found parure. I am NC 30 in MAC
TEXTURE & COVERAGE
So soft and silky feels like satin on the skin, provides a softening effect on the skin. Soothes out uneveness and provides good coverage for acne or scarring
UPDATE: Ok, after a few uses I gota take 2 lippies off because I find it kind of hard to open the compact. The powder for some reason start to a look a little cakey on me, which is weird because when I first bought it it looked nice on my face, but that might either be because of the lighting in the makeup store(the lights at makeup stores always have beautifying effect), or because I have not been sleeping well, affecting my skin condition. So disappointed because I spent alot of money on this! I'm going back to MAC products.

I'm this close to start my second pressed powder Parure Gold. at 80$ CDN it is expensive but this product really create a flawless skin. I have an acne-prone skin with acne scares, I use Guerlain l'Or or Meteorite primer then Parure Extreme (Beige Clair 02) or Lancome photogenic lumessence (Buff 2 W) and then I use Parure Gold powder all over my face, this powder is not sheer but it do blend well into the skin without accentuate lines or pores. With those three products my skin look even, with a nice glow. The powder really make a diffence, I do not know about the rejuvenating and regenerating properties they clames this product can do as i'm only 30 years old .
