My MAC Blot powder ran out so I needed new compact face powder to tote everywhere I go. I considered repurchasing because it’s definitely one of my HGs but I’ve been using it daily for two consecutive years and I wanted to try something new. I considered the compact version of my NARS loose powder but when I found out that this Chanel powder is on sale at 20% off at BeautyMNL, I decided to try it, seeing that the discounted price is cheaper than NARS.
I’m glad I did! So far I’m enjoying it. It is oozing with luxury, as the slightly shimmery powder is encased in a smooth plastic case with velvet pouch. The powder comes with a soft thin puff so I don’t have to lug a powder brush.
I bought this loose powder in a whim; wasn’t really supposed to get it but the Sales Attendant in the NARS counter in Hong Kong said that I’ll qualify for their ongoing promo if I purchase two products for the complexion (I intended to buy the Sheer Glow foundation only). I was supposed to get a free 15 ml NARS Tinted Moisturizer only to find out that she placed only a measly 5 ml sample in my shopping bag. I was annoyed at that for a good month, until I got a full sized one.
Anyway, I’m glad I got this loose powder in Eden because I’ve been using it daily ever since! My setting powder used to be MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Dark. That powder made my makeup thick and my skin oily in four hours, but I kept using it anyway. I didn’t look back ever since I started using NARS loose powder.
On my birthday, I decided to get me something really nice. So after work, I headed to Shangri-la mall to look at some MAC stuff I’ve been longing to get ever since (last month) (actually my bebi Adam got these for me :3)
