Pressed powder compact absorbs oil and supplies long lasting coverage with smooth, moist finish for a natural look. This product is free of oil, talc and wax for sensitive skin.
Everything about this product screams ultimate girli-ness. The packaging seriously has me thinking...
I purchased this in shade 1 Light Beige. To test this I used just this on top of Chanel's base I reviewed the other day.
My first thoughts are definitely about the strong scent of this product. It is a really heady floral scent, which I don't mind too much but unfortunately the scent lingers long after you apply the powder. It would probably be headache inducing.
The sponge applicator that comes with this pact is a lovely and soft sponge and really gives an even even application if used sparingly. The shade was perfect on my (pale ass) skin, and the powder gives an even medium-light coverage. You could try building this up for a fuller coverage but this powder looks cakey easily so that's a risky operation. I feel on it's own it doesn't cover enough but I've tried using it over a BB (Lioele's) and it doesn't hold up well over that either.
On its own with the Chanel base it go for about three hours before I started noticing some oil buildup. I blotted with papers and it was OK, but a couple of hours later I felt my face looked patchy where the powder had faded/rubbed off.
Overall its an OKAY powder. I didn't feel it held up on its long lasting coverage claim, and the fact it that you can't really build up the coverage is a bit of a fail for me. There are limited shades - only two - one other slightly darker than this.
While I may not purchase this again, I think this will be a product I reach for in the weekend when I need a quick tidy up when I'm in a rush to go grocery shopping, or something and don't need a full face made-up look, or to take me from the beach to an afternoon cafe/drink situation.
