Bought this when it got reformulated to be talc-free (I read that the old version was much better). I used it up and thought it was okay. It looks kind of powdery on the face and I prefer the...

This is a 2.5 for me. The loose powder looks beautiful on the initial application and you get LOADS for the hefty price tag which actually makes it quite economical for a Chanel product. It also...

It's hard to rate this. I just found it lying around and applied it just for fun - I literally cannot see ANY difference on my face! It's invisible! So, okay, I think that probably, if you have...

I’m going to be the voice of dissent here, but this powder is really not spectacular. And on my oily, shiny, textured, older skin it’s downright average. The packaging is good quality materials and...

This is one of the nicest powders with a luminous natural finish that is always flattering. I have used this in the colours 20 and 30 (and also in 40) since its launch in 2000 and come back to it...

I have normal combination skin, oily at the t-zone and normal at the cheeks. I use it with a brush, sometimes sweeping it all over my face to set my makeup or using it to bake undereye. This loose...

Quite simply this is beautiful stuff. So finely milled, easy to apply, lasts all day. And of course, the packaging is sublime. Of course it’s outwardly pricey, but you get THIRTY grams for that....

Love this powder. Was a Laura Mercier fan until I tried the Chanel powder. Doesn't cause foundation to ball-up. Absorbs oil nicely throughout the day, and haven't seen any flashback. Absolute Fav.

This has become my favourite loose powder after trying Laura Mercier - too obvious on the skin - and La Prairie - gorgeous almost creamy texture but shade 1 left an unflattering pink tint behind...

Everyone admires this as a setting powder. And it is. It is the best. But it is so much more on its own. I use this also as a simple "photo-filter" to even the color of my bare skin over my...

This is an amazing powder. It gives you an airbrushed finish & never looks cakey. It's also good at absorbing oil for us oily ladies. It may be a tad pricey, but after 4 months of continuous daily...

This is a great setting powder. It keeps my make up lasting all day. If you have dry skin, it will make it more noticeable - occasionally this happens to me, but it goes away if I have exfoliated!...
