I bought this like two years ago, and I have never used it until today. I use it over the new cream foundation, and it works great. I had no idea why I needed pressed powder, until I started noticing that my makeup was like slipping off my face. I hadn't noticed this before, because I have terrible lighting in my house. and I moved my makeup desk to the window recently, in order to take advantage of the natural light. Anyhow, I really like this setting powder. I have very pale skin, and I don't like to wear a lot of makeup, but I do wear blush and a bit of bronzer, and this pressed powder makes my foundation and concealer stay put before I put the color on my skin (blush and bronzer). It also gives my skin an airbrushed look to it. I had no idea that I had such a gold mine sitting in my makeup bin. I don't have oily skin, but because I use vitamin C, moisturizer, and then sunblock under my cream foundation, this powder helps my makeup stay put. Great product and a little goes a long way :)

I've had this product for years and am still at a loss for how to use it. Initially, I bought it on a whim for the purpose of setting my foundation. With my waaay lighter than NC15 skin, I was on a hunt for a super light colored powder. While this product is definitely pale, using it as a setting powder left my face horribley sparkley in certain lighting. Not etheral or glowing, just down right weird.
Because of the price, I held on to it. It's been staring at me from the depths of my makeup collection for quite some time. I try to use it as a highlighter, but it barely shows up. My skin looks the same as if I didn't apply it, which is odd considering how it looked when applied to set my face.
It's a beautiful compact, and the product inside is lovely smelling, smooth and high quality. I just wish I could figure out how to use it.

I am always looking for a product to perfect my skin and overall look.
I am past the age where shimmer/glittery stuff will work to confuse the other eyeballs which might see me -- and I ran into this by chance. I was buying the RC Shines and the charming SA tried some on me and I realized the subtle but important difference this made on my skin. The foundation although Chanel, stopped looking like foundation but became a subtle enhancement for great skin.
I immediately bought the last two they had left -- I was told that they don't get many of these in and they sell quickly -- I would guess that anyone who sees how this transforms the skin in such a sublte and elegant way will fork out the money for it. It is not cheap, but it's cheaper than botox.

I am NC20/ chanel vitalumiere aqua B020. this is super amazing. i was looking fr a subtle highlighter when i bought this. It's pale pink in the pan but doesn't show up much on the skin. there are SUBTLE sparkles (very very tiny). So when i put it on my cheekbones, under the brow and everywhere I highlight it's great. I don't like too much sparkles or glitter even on a night out so this is perfect. I wear it on top of my chanel vitalumiere aqua n i LUUUUUURVE it :)

I actually went to Chanel in search of this powder but in the peach color, and I might still go back for that in the summer, but for my NW20 skin rosee is absolutely perfect, the SA was so right to rec it! I apply it after powder (Universelle Libre) verrry lightly and it just gives a really subtle healthy glow. I don't even want to use the word "glow" because it's more subtle than that, it just makes me look healthy and is the perfect finishing touch. I absolutely love this, and if you're worried about the price just know that this will last you a LONG time. Well worth it IMO!

This powder is pretty finely milled and a slight rose color. Works extremely well with my skin tone. I glow...

This is exactly what I have been looking for in a pressed powder for sooo long!!! It works as a great setting powder over makeup, producing the same soft-focus effect as a loose powder. It never looks cakey, no matter how many times I reapply during the day. I love how it adds a very subtle sheen and makes me glow!! So the result is a matte, yet luminous look if that makes sense. I also love the color of this powder, it is a very very light ballerina pink which is great for color correcting. I often find that yellow-toned powders make my NC15 skin look....strange. Oddly enough, I also find this controls my oily skin pretty well. And contrary to what some people said, there are NO visible glitter particles on my skin in broad daylight!! You just glow....I absolutely love the color-correcting, luminous properties this offers!!

I love the packaging and the way it looks in the pan. I also loved it when first applied on my hand, it was so fine, so soft and slightly shimmery, so I thought it would be HG. I tried applying it with a puff, with a fluffy brush, with a kabuki... Unfortunately, it didn't work and I couln't figure out what I am doing wrong (I also own Mimosa and Lilas and I like them). At first it looks nice and glowy without being over the top. After a while my whole face has a strange slightly rosey all-over color which is hard to describe, like I have been exposed to the sun and have been slightly burnt - not at all flattering. Also, it makes me look very shiny. At first I thought that it was just the "wrong glow", but my face gets actually very oily when I use this, even over my new HG Mat Lumiere (which alone keeps me oil-free all day long...). I ended up using it on my decollete on special occasions.

This review is for Chanel’s Poudre Douce Soft Pressed Powder. To tell you the truth, I’m a bit conflicted about this one. On one hand, it’s quite lovely. The powder is finely milled, silky to the touch. It has a delightful soft, floral scent. It goes on easily. It helps to warm up my pale skin. And it helps to even out my skin tone (which is gawd awful, so this a big plus). On the other hand, it doesn’t soak up oil very well (I have oily skin and wear sunblock); not nearly as well as Mac Blot. So if you reapply it, which I must, the “glow” quickly become a shiny/greasy look. I sometimes am startled when looking in the mirror to see I am looking more like the Tin Woodsman than “luminous”. In conclusion, I reckon this is good stuff if you have normal-to-dry skin, but not so good if you have oily skin.

For reference, I am NW15, red hair, green eyes, and freckles. I had high hopes for this powder. I kept reading on the boards and reviews that it made skin look glowing and ethereal. It didn't do either for me. This is pink in the pan, but when I applied it, it didn't give my skin any additional color. In fact, it really didn't do anything to enhance my skin. Like catnap commented, it made my face very sparkly in the sun. I would not purchase this again. At the time of this review, the powder is $50 for 14g/0.49oz. To me, it's not worth the $$$.

i've been looking for a new highlighter (i was previously using YSL touche eclat #2 for the past year) to bring some life to my haggard-looking 34 yr old light/fair asian complexion . i have pretty bad dark circles and redness around the nose and under the chin . within the past week or two, i've tried Benefit High Beam, Guerlain Les Meteorites balls powder in Pink Fresh (smells very pretty, lovely texture, but i think its more of a shimmery blush since there's too much color/pigmentation to be a 'true' highlighter), and Chanel Poudre Douce 30 Rosee . Out of the above three, i have to say i like the Rosee least. Because:
1. i can hardly see any effect (i.e., glow/highlighted area) in indoor lighting - this stuff looks bright pink in the container but dissappears on my skin (perhaps darker skintones can benefit from this) no matter how many layers (of Rosee) i put on (using the attached brush and/or my fingers).
2. super glittery in direct sunlight (NO color whatsoever, or healthy shimmers, just alot of GLITTERS) - not attractive or natural to me .
Back to Chanel counter it goes .

Still on the fence about this product. I will continue to use as I have an almost brand new compact, but I do not think I will repurchase. Instead of using this in the mornings, I have switched to sticking it in my makeup bag and using for touch ups only. When I was using it to set my makeup, I felt as though it made me look a little too pale. In my bathroom lighting it looked great, but when I got in the car, and in natural lighting, I felt overly pale, even when I used a bronzer. I do have a little more color now than usual (BB Warm Beige), so I may love this in the winter (normally BB Sand) when I am more fair. I really want to like this, as the other reviewers raved about it!

at first I am NC10-15,
everybody well said about this powder in here,
so I just add bit my revew.
I am huge fun of loose & Pressed powder because I don't wear foundation. 1.apply sunblock 2. powder.
I've tried lot lot of Asian & USA & Euro brand powder's past 20 years.
this is one of * Best 5 *pressed powder I ever used.
most important thing about powder to me ( pressed & loose) is if it's makes skin look flawless and glowy finish and Natural look.
this is the one! it's not too much illuminating ,
you can make your skin looks not only soft foucus finish but soft glowy. like your skin looks beautiful as smooth as sleek silk.
I apply this powder by everydaymineral's flat top brush or mac 187.
you can make gorgeous natural glowy looks if you apply it on neck and ear too.
about price, to me it's not expensive if you can have gorgeous
porcelain skin finish by $50,
Rossy is very light cool pink tone ,so it's not good for someone
who has yellow tone & mid color skin tone.
big pic is in my profile.
also pic compare with chanel poudre douce Almond / Lilas / Peche Tndre.

I bought this powder on a whim during a recent shopping trip. I have combination skin and I am a retin A user. I have neutral neither warm nor cool skin thats neither pale nor tan. I am a Laura Mercier nude, Bobbi Brown Sand, GA LSF 4.5 MAC NW25 for reference. I was looking for a powder that would not leave me dry or cakey. I checked out the poudre douce colors based on the MUA reviews. I tried the peach first and thought it was ok, but a little off. When I saw the Rosee I was like, yeah right? It looked ballerina pink and I thought if anything it would whiten my complexion which I did not want. At the suggestion of the salesperson I tried on the Rosee. I was completely surprised. My skin appeared even and flawless. It did not shine, but glowed if that makes any sense. When I got to work my coworkers said something was different, that I looked awake. I wanted to be sure it was the powder but I have gotten compliments similar from others. The compact and powder are very pretty. I would purchase again.

Love this product. I can defiately see the difference between with and without this product. My complexion is kinda more pale/white than normal Asians' and with freckles. It's really sheer and evens out different tones in my face. I usually wear foundations, cheek blush, and mascara (My moto is keep it simple!!). By applying this powder, I don't look like person who only applied foundations. If you love naked natural luminous white make-ups (the typical Asian makeup style), this is the perfect powder!! Although it is really pricy -_-

I'll just be repeating what everyone else is saying, so here I go:
Poudre Douce 30 Rosee:
This is the most expensive finishing powder I've ever owned. I have tried all the mid price range ones (just look at my notepad), all colors, from lavender to pink and everything in between, and there is NOTHING else like this. It's a combination of just the perfect shade of pastel pink, the microfine particles, the light fragrance and the amazing ability to provide luminosity without having the particles settle into fine lines. (I don't know HOW they do it ...) Like another reviewer said, it takes YEARS off of you and the skin does not look matte or flat. I will NOT leave home without wearing this. I wear it during all seasons, but I really "shine" in the summertime! I just glow and glow and glow! It is pricey but actually worth it. I hope they never discontinue it because they have a true winnner here. The only thing I don't like about it is it comes with a brush that is not easily stored. I also don't use the brush, I use a flocked sponge. Even though it applies a heavier finish, I still look luminous! Pure Genius!

I bought this after dropping the thought of buying Benefit's "Georgia" or "Dallas", respectively. I was looking for a beauty powder that leaves a very subtle wash of colour (if any at all) and simply makes my skin look more vibrant and alive. I'm a very pale girl and often my skin looks dull and simply dead. Can't have that, won't have that. I've been experimenting with all kinds of powders so far: from Dianne Brill's Fresh Water Pearl Finish in "Baroque Pearl" to Benefits "Bluff Dust". I've been satisfied with all of them, but was still looking for something else. That little bit of "more". Whenever I look at gorgeous girls like Liv Tyler, I wonder why they appear so elven, so pale and yet so lively.
Anyway, this powder finally does the trick for me. It does appear slightly pink in the pan, but leaves hardly any colour on the face. It simply evens out the skin tone, adds a lovely, very subtle shimmer (I couldn't find any glitter on my face, like so many other reviewers apparently did) and turns my often tired and dull complexion into that of a porcelain doll: sophisticated, rested, happy, glowing. Chanel's Poudre Douce in "Rosée" is everything I expected from a skin enhancing product. Finally I found my elven secret. Totally in love with this. Will buy again!

UPDATE: This powder does nothing for an oily T-zone, which I have now that it is summer.
I am *so* loving this powder! For me, it pulls everything together to give me a finished, almost airbrushed look. Yes, I still have pores on my forehead, but who is looking at that when my skin is even and luminous? Tell me, who? While it is expensive ($50), a little goes a long way, it comes with a brush, and I *will* use this every day...and, I do. I have combo skin...not sure how this will work for oily skinned girls. I really think that would depend on the skincare and foundation used. BTW: The Peche is much darker than I thought it would be...much better for medium to darker skins. The Rosee has a pinkish hue to it, but does not make my skin look pinky in any way. Glowy, yes, but pinky, no. The Almond is SUPER shimmery and is a highlighting powder.

The texture is silky and lovely, but it makes my skin rather pinky and off. It accentuates the darkness but doesn't tone down the redness, leaving my face a bit of a mess. I won't be purchasing, but I do seem to like the Lilas and will test that again.

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir! It's odd that Chanel uses the name "Rosee" for this product, since you would expect it to be on the pinkish side, but instead, this is quite milky pale - too ghostly even for my pale self!
It's hard not to love most Chanel products - they're beautifully packaged and are of high quality. But this one just didn't do it for me. As some others have mentioned, it's too pale and sparkley, so it's time to resume my hunt for a great pressed powder.
