Chanel Poudre Universelle Libra | Review





Today I decided to bring you a mini review on this Chanel Powder which I have been testing for the past few weeks. Before trying this I was using the RCMA no colour powder however the packaging soon became an annoyance and I'd been on the lookout for a new loose powder to replace that one. I then came across the Chanel Poudre Universelle Libra Loose Powder and figured I would give it a try. So, without further a do here are my thoughts on this product. 


First of all, it goes without saying that the packaging is simply stunning as all Chanel products are, It's most certainly a dressing table decor piece. My prefered method of application is with a beauty blender (although it does come with a Chanel Powder Puff); I like to press it into the skin as I find it ensures I stay matte all day and it keeps my makeup in place for absolute hours. The product itself is very finely milled which allows for a smooth finish without looking cakey, thick or dry. It has a natural finish that is light and weightless although i find it very mattifying without looking flat. Any other powder products i apply on top always blend seamlessly and I never have to re-touch throughout the day. I have it in the shade 20 Clair and it's a great match for my NC15 skin tone.The package itself is quite large, containing what seems to be an inexhaustible amount of product which I doubt I'll be using up anytime soon; It has a subtle scent that isn't noticeable upon application. 

The first day that i tried this foundation I wore it with my Makeup Forever HD foundation stick and after being at work all day in the heat I got home and my base was still flawless. This for me is a true test of a powder as it's very important for my base to stay matte and to ensure the oil is kept at bay especially on my T Zone. It works wonderfully to set my concealer ensuring that it doesnt crease and looks impeccable. Because of that I would most certainly recommend this powder despite the fact it's pricey I for sure think it's worth it. This product has now taken place of the RCMA and Laura Mercier powders as I honestly think it's the best! 

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you've tried this powder let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Would you like me to continue doing posts and mini reviews on products as It's something I could definitely do. 

With Love,
