Orlane Poudre Libre, Because Every Girl Needs A Splurge Worthy Transparent Loose Powder

Product Sent for Review

Orlane Poudre Libre

I admit that I'm usually a drugstore beauty girl. But on occasion I'll splurge (like my recent YSL foundation and pressed powder purchase), and having high end beauty products can be a bit addicting. There's something about having the last step of your makeup be a high end product that somehow makes me feel super pampered.

That's where Orlane's Transparent Loose Powder comes in. This powder comes from a brand usually known for their high end skin care. The loose powder comes only in one shade, and it's great for my skin tone. I'm not certain if it would work for darker complexions, what it looks like in the canister is really close to my skin. It comes with a large velvet puff that sits inside of the container. A little shake and just the right amount of powder is on the puff.

The powder is very, very finely ground. I typically pat it gently onto my face, occasionally I'll grab a kabuki brush to blend it in (who wants to pull an Angelina Jolie?), but that really is only needed when I put too much in one spot. The powder is invisible on my skin. It gives me a semi-matte finish and keeps my combination skin shine free all day.

My only complaint about this powder is that on the Orlane website it is under Pressed Powders, but it isn't pressed. Keep that in mind if you're trying to order it!

Your point is well taken about making sure our makeup is blended sufficiently!

Angelina may have looked fine in real life, though. I read somewhere that HD makeup, designed for actors to use with HD filming, shines white when exposed to flash photography. That probably wouldn't be a problem for most of us. No paparazzi stalking me! :-)

I love comments! Please ask away, provide info on how you liked something, etc. Note that spam, comments with random links (which I count as spam), anything not in english (again, spam) and comments that are completely unrelated to anything will all be deleted.
