Review: Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder

Since you guys all know how much of a beauty lover I am, I bet you could guess my reaction when I finally bought my first Chanel product. This thing has kept me happy for days, I swear it has it's own gravitational pull. I've been testing the Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder (£36.00/30g) in the shade 40 Doré for the past two weeks and I think it's time to share this with you all!

First of all, can we please all admire the packaging, I love the simplicity of Chanel, it just oozes sophistication with the monochrome logo. This product is quite sturdy and big, so it's more of a dressing table staple than an on the go touch up. The product has a sift, which is practical so all the product doesn't spill out at once and also contained a puff which is so so soft!

So the Chanel Natural Finish Powder is, like the name suggests, more of a natural finish powder but as it is a powder it does slightly mattify the skin. Although I have oily skin, I like the idea of a setting powder that won't interfere with the finish of my foundation, so this product is great for those who love dewy or satin finishes, as this won't excessively mattify the effect you were trying to create. This is more of a setting powder, rather than your mid-afternoon blot as it's a very fine powder, and it's so lovely to smooth over the skin, it just feels like silk and is so weightless that you forget that you've even applied it! I put a light dusting over my face with a fluffy brush as I prefer the ease of application when using a brush, the puff that comes with it is better for if you want to work the powder a bit more into your skin.
When this product has been applied,  I've noticed a slight evenness in my complexion, although this isn't a powder that provides a lot of coverage, it does add something, which makes you look a bit healthier and just more even. This sets my make-up nicely and for a light powder this is pretty good on the longevity front, I still need to blot, but I know that if I hadn't applied this product then I would be blotting more throughout the day. 
Even though Chanel Products are not exactly budget friendly, I think it is amazing quality for the price, this product contains 30 grams of powder, which is a lot! For reference bareMinerals Original and Matte foundations contains only 6g and they are £25.00. So for Chanel to be doing 5x more product for around £10 more, it's a very good steal! Plus I actually got this from World Duty Free so I actually paid £30.00. 
This is a product that I use on the daily, and that's exactly what I wanted from anything I bought from Chanel, something that was worth the money. I would seriously recommend this if you are looking for a new powder to set make-up with as this does do a lovely job, but I would also recommend this for those days where you don't wear much make-up since the colour-correcting aspect is very beneficial!
What's your go-to powder? I would love to know, so be sure to leave me a comment down below! Also any more recommendations from Chanel! I would love to explore more products!

  1. Chanel products are so beautiful, I'm so jealous that you have this. It sounds like a lovely, lightweight powder and it actually doesn't seem that expensive when you compare it to the size of the bareMinerals foundations! And you get an adorable little powder puff too!

  2. Haha aw, I actually think you would really like this product, especially since you aren't as oily as I am! This product does give you a lot! bareMinerals lasts long too and so I know this product will also! :)
