Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre #30 Review

Hey Everyone!
Today I am going to be talking about the Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre in #30. I had never been a powder person previous to this purchase, but a recent change in my skin prompted me to buy this powder. Since I have hit 20, my t-zone has become oily which was never a problem for me before. Having an oily t-zone is not a huge problem, you just have to slightly adjust your skincare and makeup routine.

If you don't already know I use mostly Chanel make-up, so when I heard the fantastic reviews for this product it was a very simple choice for me. I hope you enjoy this review, and if you have any questions make sure you comment below.

This loose powder is describe as being a natural finishing powder for the skin. The powder also features photo silica microspheres, which help to create the sheer matt velvety finish.

The Jewel Beauty Verdict
The difference this powder has made in making my makeup stay put is really impressive. I decided to go with the shade 30 as I wear B30 in Chanel foundations. The powder is not at all noticeable, and blends away into the skin like magic. This is a really great finishing powder, and it has made my everyday makeup look a lot more flawless than it used to. I find the finish is more on the matt side, but at the same time I don't think it takes away all of my skins radiance. It is not stated about its "oily controlling" abilities in the Chanel write up about this product, but I am not the only one to say that it does a very good job in terms of of oil control on the skin. You also get a really generous amount for £34.00, it is still very expensive.. but the deal is better than some of the other high end powders. Finally, I would say that this is only a finishing powder, and I don't feel that it could be used alone as a base.

- Blends away beautifully 
- No powder like finish
- Helps makeup to stay longer
- Makes your makeup look more flawless

- This loose powder can get messy ( I don't advise this form of the powder for travelling )
- Its packaging could be improved
