On my 3rd container of Banane. Bought it to replace Bobbi Brown's Pale Yellow loose powder (price kept going up and container kept getting smaller: $40 for 6g is shameful). This container is 25g for $50. Lasts me about a year. I agree the container leaves a lot to be desired. However, I find it charming and assume it's been the same design since 1881. I don't carry it with …Read more

T.LeClerc loose powder became one my favorite loose powders of all time. I am using Abricot. My skin looks dewy and fresh in that color, no chalky or ashy look, no feeling of skin dryness after using it for quite a long time. The powder holds skin oil in its place longer than other powders which were my favorites (Chanel, Clinique and SLA). The only disadvantage though is the packaging. As girls …Read more

This product, in all of it's colors, gives me the ecstatic experience that Bare Escentuals promises (and apparently delivers for some) but ultimately fails for me in a cakey, rashy shame-filled episode of buyer's remorse. A sparkly, cakey, rashy shame-filled episode of buyer's remorse. I have ten colors- seven loose, three pressed- to make up my arsenal to accommodate my …Read more

I have not used this powder but ran across an ingredient list and it lists that there is a fragrance. This would probably be a deal breaker for some ladies so I just thought I'd post this info.

I knew from reading reviews that the product was messy, so I bought an empty container from a mineral makeup company - problem solved. But: Open it REALLY carefully.

This is OK as a fixing powder, but probably difficult for both very dry, or very oily skin.

Had a nice finish - not mindblowing, but nice.

The main problem for me is that it makes my skin break out …

This is a good powder although the box is very messy and really rubbish for travelling. It spills everywhere.
The powder is good quality, offers good coverage but sadly it did give me some small pimples.
As powders go, this is a good one and much better than the mineral powders which I have been wasting my money on, as the minerals always break me out and scratch my skin.
If you …

I have used many loose powders and this is the best. I use Banane and it's perfect on my italian olive skin. I have used LM and that was my HG until I got this. I will never buy a different powder again. Use a tweezers the first time you open it so you don't waste any (like the other reviewers mentioned). Goes on great with a puff or a sponge.
EDIT: This powder is so lovely …

I would use this only on the days when my skin is completely smooth and flawless, because I found that this powder has the ability to accentuate blemishes...? I might be wrong. Looks really great on skin though if it works on you. I was given 5-6 different colours in full size tins as gifts last year from a french friend, I have not fully experimented with it but I will soon.

I use this in Char Ocree, which works well for my fair (Armani #2) skin. I rely on this to reduce the look of my large pores, which it does really well. The packaging is very pretty, but a little hard to use. I use a spoon to transfer the powder into a plastic travel powder container, and this solves the problem.
