The first time I learned about this powder was in the early 90's in the pages of Vogue. As a teen just learning about makeup the idea of very expensive French powder didn't click. I'd see or read about it here and there over the years and as I knew I wanted a tin I didn't seek it out for some reason. Fast forward to last week I discovered, by accident, where I could purchase …Read more

This used to be my go-to loose powder until about 2006 when I found LM loose powder.
I'm super pale (nc15 or lighter) and this powder was a good color match as far as darkness, and the yellow helped cover up some cheek redness. T Leclerc is easier for me to get over here in Switzerland (price is cheaper than US prices whereas LM here is double) so my general MO was to have a couple of …

Have not tried this but just wanted to let you guys know I stumbled across an ingredient list and there is a fragrance in this powder. May be a deal breaker for some of you.

I managed to buy a BNIB of this from eBay for £14 delivered. I've been using it for over a year and still am not half way through the tub. I apply a loose dusting with my Elf Studio powder brush and find that it works perfectly to set my foundation and minimise any oiliness. I like how it gives a soft finish but without being totally matte and dry looking like some other powders.

I bought this when the rave was on how fantastic Banane was and what a healthy glow it gives. Well, I guess that depends on your skin tone and the foundation you use because for me this tends to make me look sallow rather than healthy - except for during summertime when I have a deep tan. The packaging is cute rather than functional. I would not repurchase this particular colour as I have found …Read more

This will last for many years. At first, I would use this to set the powder compact foundation with a fluffy brush. But I notice that using a brush to apply does not set the makeup as well as a flocked sponge or powder puff. I would have to blot twice during the day if I use a brush. Based on one of the reviewers below, I would tap the jar on a flat surface before opening the lid and put the …Read more

Superb yellow toned powder that really flattered my skin by blending so well with its yellow undertones. I didn't really need to apply a foundation beforehand as it worked so well for me. Decent oil control ability as well although not overly good. It's also good that it doesn't cake and doesn't clog my pores. Unfortunately, this doesn't come with an applicator at …Read more

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I use this for everything! Great for setting makeup, highlighting, evening out redness or even toning down blush if I was too heavy handed. The yellow tone is very understated and seems to work with multiple skin tones (in my non-professional opinion formed mostly after attacking friends with makeup). It has a VERY subtle shimmer to it, so I've heard others say they …Read more

i have been using this product for more than 3 years now. i really like the color on my skin. in terms of price, t lecler is sold locally for Php1,500 (about $30)... reasonable enough for a great loose powder.
