For years I have been against spending money on luxury cosmetics. Not that the products were bad, I just could not fathom spending $50.00 or more (for example) on powder or blush. Then one day I found myself in Dillards among beautiful shades of lipsticks and powders all of which I considered “luxury cosmetics.” It was there and then I decided to go for the gusto and purchase one of these pricey items and see how it fairs.
One of the first products I purchased was Chanel’s Natural Finish Loose Powder in Translucent 2. This finely milled powder is to die for! I mean it is perfection in a jar. You get 1 oz of product, but this will last you for a while as you only use a little bit at a time. The product never appears powdery but instead looks luminous on your skin. With this powder, it is not about coverage, but instead it is about the finished appearance you receive when using it.
I have to admit that this powder is totally worth the money. I have tried many loose powders (MAC, Laura Mercier) and the Chanel powder tops them all. The packaging itself is great and comes with a small Chanel powder puff. I prefer to use a big powder brush to dust it over my face and the cap is great to roll my big brush around in. It will set your makeup and keep your face beautiful no matter what conditions you find yourself in; such as the humidity down here in New Orleans.
I did some research and in case you have oily to sensitive skin, the Chanel Natural Loose Powder should not break you out. This has now become my go to powder. It makes my skin look more natural, glowing and flawless. This powder is an instant home run for me!
The Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder retails for $52.00. It may be purchased at Nordstrom and Dillards.
