Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Loose Powder Review

This powder is just everything to me. I have one of these powders in my car and I know that sounds crazy. I always notice that I look shiny when I first get in my car. Before I set off anywhere I will take a glimpse in my rear view mirror, not to check traffic, but to check my makeup, of course.  And it is when I’m sat in my car after work and the natural light hits my face that I see I’m a shiny mess.

So I keep a tub of this in my door pocket with a Real Techniques Setting Brush. Then before I see anybody when I get home I am set back in place and look lovely and matte again.

I have to be honest and say that this Chanel Loose Powder is I find in no way different to any other loose powders I have tried. To be completely truthful the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder and the Makeup Forever HD Powder are much more finely milled than this product and they go on much smoother.

But I have to say that I really do love this product, when I want something a little bit more glam I reach for this. The product itself might not feel any different but the whole feel of the Chanel packaging for me makes a difference. It is silly I know but to me it does make a difference.

The product itself isn’t as finely milled as the ones that I previously mentioned but it does go on the skin nice and softly. I also fine that it is lightly fragrance, which I like, it adds to that luxury feel, but I know for some people with sensitive skin this is a nightmare.

I have also had this one tub of product for well over a year. It is so big, I think you get 30g of product, which is huge when you compare it next to something like the Makeup Forever HD Powder. Also even though the price may seem high, for the amount of product you receive it does balance it out.

I absolutely adore this product and I use it on a very regular basis. However I don’t use it on any clients because I don’t want them to have a reaction to the fragrance which is in it. But personally I have very normal skin which isn’t sensitive in anyway and it works like a dream for me.



  1. Sucks that its fragranced! But might be worth checking out, I'll keep my eye out about it :)

    1. The fragrance isn't great but it does fade after a while and then the powder is really nice and long lasting!
