I have been a loyal fan of Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre for as long as I can remember. I trust this to set any foundation that I use. Even though now I rarely wear foundations, I still use this before my pressed powder (I use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural nowadays) and after makeup base/primer. It sets and holds the makeup beautifully. It has a rather matte finish. I don’t mind it because I prefer to go matte rather than going dewy from the get go. I like my face smooth to the touch, not tacky.
I’d say the price is very reasonable for a high end brand. At USD 52, it contains 30 grams of product. Huge amount and it lasts for a really long time, at least 1.5 years or so for me. Bottom line, it’s perfect.
That being said though, I’ve grown rather bored of it. It’s still a great powder. I’m just trying to expand my wings on the powder field. After looking around, I’ve come up with several products in the consideration box.
