In makeup, loose powder has always been the sidekick to its more technology-driven and ingredients-packed compact or liquid counterparts. But not the Chanel Le Blanc UV Protection Whitening Loose Powder SPF50/PA+++. If you ask the lab folks who produce makeup, they will have you know that it’s always a tough job combining a high SPF with light textures. This formula has a super-generous SPF but also melts easily into skin, leaving a sheer finish and a velvety feel. It also doesn’t lose out on the ingredients list, with pearl light pigments that make your complexion look luminous, as well as a special pearl extract and a licorice extract to brighten up sallow skin tones.

How you use:

  • Turn the case over, then take a small amount of powder with the puff.
  • Apply it by pressing lightly on the face.
  • For a sheerer result, remove excess powder with a large makeup brush.

Chanel Le Blanc UV Protection Whitening Loose Powder SPF50/PA+++ comes in a package with with 10 gr. of this wonderful loose powder.

Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder


I’m rather addicted to trying out face powders both pressed and loose. I can wax lyrical about which ones are chalky, which ones are fine, or the different colours and textures and smells. But it’s always good to be surprised by a newbie who comes leftfield and knocks all your preconceptions into oblivion.

Step forward Vichy’s Dermablend who’s finely formulated, fine, white. light, setting powder which looks incredibly. Its super-lightweight powder specifically formulated to strengthen and extend the hold of Dermablend foundations but really, any foundation will be delighted to be dabbed with this gossamer fine dust. Matt yet with just enough white colour to highlight as it goes, this is a find.



It’s easy application means that a dab by the powder puff enclosed or even a few large brush strokes will transform a face into a highlighted wonder that’ provides a matt finish. It’s light and micro-fine texture makes all the difference. Heck it even has a rub, sweat and water resistant finish and lasts up to 16 hours. Wow!

Oh and it’s allergy-tested on sensitive skin, is paraben-free and fragrance-free. Non-comedogenic, Non-acnegenic.
