I have tried many loose powders from different luxury brands and the ysl loose powder ticks the boxes for me for sure. My expectations with loose powders are the powder must be finely milled so that it doesn’t make my face look cakey. The powder have to be hydrating because I have dry skin. The ysl loose powder is definitely finely milled which feels silky on my skin which is perfect for my dry skin. Love it.
I don’t wear makeup very often, but when I do I ensure I apply a high quality loose powder to set my foundation/concealer/contour as I honestly believe it makes or breaks how my makeup both looks and performs. I recently trialed the YSL All Hours foundation, and was really impressed, so I decided to purchase this powder. It is pricey, coming in at around $80, so my expectations were pretty damn high..   The powder comes in a gorgeous clear jar, with a gold twist lid with YSL etched on the top. It comes with a small powder puff that sits on top of the powder sifter and underneath the lid. The packaging looks expensive, and definitely gives that high-end feel that YSL have mastered.   The powder comes in four shades, numbered 1-4. I opted for shade #4, as I have neutral-tan skin and online #3 looked very yellow (similar to Ben Nye’s banana powder). It was a little dark when I first received it, but after getting a little sun it is perfect.   In regard to texture and colour, it is very similar to the Laura Mercier loose powder which I was using previously. To compare the two, I would say that this YSL powder is a little creamier and more finely milled than the LM, and I find that it appears to blur the fine lines and blemishes a little better because of this. It sets the makeup nicely, applies beautifully, does not look overly matte, and it honestly feels like nothing on the skin. I have worn it for 8+ hours, and I can vouch for the staying power of this powder. It prevents under eye creasing and keeps oiliness at bay whilst allowing your skin to have that natural glow (thanks to the micro mother of pearl pigment).   I have combination skin, and absolutely adore how this sits on my skin throughout the day. I do not get oily yet it doesn’t dry out my skin, making it a holy grail for us combination-skinned gals. I also have super sensitive skin, especially around my eyes, which is the reason I generally opt for more high-end products. This product has no fragrance and this product has not caused any irritation whatsoever.   The Chanel loose powder was my absolute favourite powder.. until I tried this YSL product. Although the performance of both is AHHMAZING, the YSL has won my heart with the radiance it creates. If you are tossing up between the two, go the Chanel if you prefer a matte finish and the YSL if you prefer a natural radiance.   PROS: every single aspect of the product (except the price). CONS: you guessed it, the price. RECOMMENDATION: any skin type looking for a high-end radiant loose powder.
