My Body is Loving the Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre in Féérie but my Face Say’s No Glow
I don’t think I’ve ever taken this long to review a product. Not because it’s a troublesome product but because I wasn’t exactly sure if this product was best suited to me…you know how that goes.
When my wonderful Chanel SA showed me the Poudre Universelle Libre in Féérie I oohed and ahed at the gorgeousness of it all. Unfortunately, this was the only item that she didn’t have a tester for so I picked up the product by sight alone.
She told me how enchanted she was with this product specifically from the holiday collection – she even shared this was the one item on her personal wish list – given how it was demonstrated at her meeting for the collection. Well say no more, I told her. I was sold!
It was only after bringing the powder home that I noticed this product was loaded with sparkly bits. I know you’re thinking to yourself, so what’s the problem Liz? After all, if it shimmers and shines I’m all over it.
The thing is, I’m not a huge fan of sparkles on my face. On my eyes and lips, no problem. On my face however, I prefer a luminous, pearl-like shimmer. So when I saw the sparkles (although they are very fine versus chunky) I felt certain I made a tragic makeup mistake.
After playing with this silky soft, finely milled, faintly pink (you can see a light pink shade in the jar but on my skin, it’s transparent in color) loose setting powder I decided that on me, it is best used on the décolletage and shoulders.
On the body, it leaves a delicate sprinkling of micro-sparkles that hits the light in the most magical way and is perfect for the holiday’s.
