A little while ago I found my self in search of a new face powder. Don’t get me wrong, my Mac Skin Finish Natural, in Medium Light and I love it, but I was looking for something a bit lighter and brighter to use with lighter foundations when when I just want to take the shine off my t zone.

I found myself with a bit of cash on my Debenhams Beauty Club card and well I splurged the lot on a pot of powder. Β£30 to be precise. Which is rather a lot for a powder I know….

Β It’s insane I know, but you just can’t beat the feeling of walking out of Debenhams with a little Chanel bag hanging from your arm. Well you can beat it, but you know what I mean, it really is a nice feeling.
Anyway, the powder. I picked up shade 30 Naturel – Translucent 2.

Β I’d have to say that I don’t find this powder to be completely translucent, it is slightly yellow on me, not enough for you to see it once swept on with a good powder brush, but, regardless I feel I should mention it!

It sets your foundation beautifully, it keeps me shine free all day and best of all it gives me a real glow and shine, despite not having an shimmer or sparkle in it (that I can see with my naked eye at least). A gorgeous product. And well worth the splurge with my points!

I must just add, I was just double checking the prices on a few sites and I notice that the swatch colour shown for shade 30- Naturel bears no resemblance to the colour of the powder, so if you do ever find yourself buying this online, my pictures are accurate, the online swatches are not!

    I’ve got Chanel perfumes, but no make up, so I need to fix that soon – it must just make you smile when you open your make up bag!
