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 textures, with a weighty feel that is nice. The powder puff is slightly too big and thick to comfortably get into all the nooks and crannies of my face, it feels a bit awkward having to fold it in …Read more

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 after trying other loose and compact powders (like La Mer and La Prairie).

You get an extremely finely milled product in very natural (more yellowish) colours and finish. The container …

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 powder provides mild to some coverage, depending on how much you use. It should work best for dry to normal skin, because my t-zone gets slightly shiny about 5 hours later. But it should work better if …Read more

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. I’ve had mine two years and have barely made a dent in it. Treat yourself!

I never buy anything twice (heck, I seldom FINISH a product before I'm on to the next . . . . I have a problem LOL). Having said that, I have bought this HUGE container THREE times. It is such a no brainer. After makeup I use the puff it comes with and dab over my makeup and it's like I have my own Instagram filter. No caking, no oxidizing, no breakouts, no drying effects, just …Read more

THIS IS MY GO TO POWDER. I know it seems pricey, but ITS SO WORTH IT. The container is HUGE and you get soo much product for your money. It keeps my makeup on all day and never cakes and has such a lightweight finish. I love this powder so much. I will be purchasing another when I run out (which probably won’t be for awhile). I definitely highly recommend this.

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.

I love this powder. Its really finely milled and doesn't make your face look cakey. I bought this on a whim one day at a department store and I honestly don't regret it. I use it every day, including days when I don't use makeup but want oil control. This powder takes away the oil but leaves my skin looking healthy and not flat. This powder blurs my imperfections so that they …Read more

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 and didn't control oil.

I love the velvety finish Chanel leaves behind, it's never a dead matte and don't really detect sparkles either. Oil control is just ok but eh, no powder …

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 Neutrogena SPF 45 sunscreen. Yes. Just fluff and dust over sunscreen or moisturizer and your sins will be forgiven. Add blusher or bronzer and you'll never look …
