CHANEL LOOSE POWDER: MAC MSFN’S CLASSY OLDER SISTER

I love MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, but despite its best efforts, it doesn’t keep me shine-free for long during the Summer. Blot, blot, powder is not something I like to do a lot of. While searching for something that would last longer I whittled my loose powder wishlist down to Laura Mercier, Guerlain & Chanel. I chose Chanel, obviously – I’ve become a bit of a Chanel fangirl recently.

CHANEL NATURAL FINISH LOOSE POWDER 30 NATUREL

CHANEL NATURAL FINISH LOOSE POWDER 30 NATUREL CLOSE UP

Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder – 30 Naturel (30g/£31.50) is described as a “natural sheer matte finish” powder, that “through the inclusion of photo-reflective pigments” helps to “disguise fine lines and skin blemishes.” For me, it’s slightly matte, looks natural, yet it leaves a beautiful glow to the skin – very similar to MSFN. It feels much silkier than MSFN though, & gives a more brightened & luminous finish.

The jar is bulky (not something I’d carry around for touch ups) so after blotting during the day, I’ll apply a little MSFN if needed. I only have to blot once instead of 3-4 times with MSFN alone – quite the achievement for a combination/oily skinned girl + Summer!

CHANEL NATURAL FINISH LOOSE POWDER 30 NATUREL SIGMA TAPERED FACE F25

CHANEL NATURAL FINISH LOOSE POWDER 30 NATUREL SWATCH

I like to apply it with my Sigma F25 Tapered Face brush (my favourite brush so far for powder & bronzer, mostly because of the shape. I much prefer it to traditional paddle brushes.) I usually pat it lightly into the powder, swirl it in the lid & apply it all over my face after foundation & concealer. It doesn’t look cakey, it doesn’t feel heavy & although it looks very light against my skin when swatched heavily, it blends away into nothing. Because of this I don’t think it provides much, if any, coverage.

I wanted to see if I could capture the ‘photo-reflective pigments’, (tiny shimmer), so applied a few layers to my arm. If you look veryclosely & are looking for them, you can see a few. When applied on my face I don’t detect them but I do notice that my skin has the aforementioned glow to it. The powder has a slightly sweet, Soleil de Tan scent to it, but is much lighter – I love it, but I know not everyone would appreciate it.

CHANEL NATURAL FINISH LOOSE POWDER 30 NATUREL MAC MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL MEDIUM DARK

The main thing I love is that it sets my make up but doesn’t make me look too matte. Other powders I’ve tried felt like a compromise – they didn’t give me the MSFN glow.

Overall, would I recommend it? Yes. I think that loose powder is often overlooked but it makes a hell of a difference to the overall look & lasting power of a made up face. Is it worth the price? Yes. Comparatively speaking, MAC MSFN (10g/£18.50) works out at £1.85 p/g, & Chanel at £1.05 p/g. Despite the initial higher cost, you’re getting a lot more for your money, & for me it works better especially during the Summer.

RESURRECTION OF A BROKEN MSF & MAKE UP MEMORY

I have tonsillitis. It’s a good excuse to be lazy, but no excuse is big enough to watch Jeremy Kyle, Loose Women & Sally Jessy Raphael consecutively.. Pulling myself away from Sally, I decided to experiment with my shattered Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish.

(It was smashed to pieces by this culprit. I’d just brought it back from my trip to South Korea, had only used it twice, & it was the first thing I’d ever bought from MAC for myself. AHH.)

SOFT & GENTLE MINERALIZE SKINFINISH BROKEN

I’ve seen tutorials on how to press pigments & broken eye shadows, but nothing for broken MSF’s. The usual suggestion is to put the broken pieces into a sifter for use as a powder highlighter, which I did, & didn’t use once.

I generally dislike loose powder products – they’re messy & take more time to use.

SOFT & GENTLE MINERALIZE SKINFINISH BROKEN ALCOHOL TOOLS CASE

I kept the cats out of the room, disinfected the desk, & wiped the tools down with alcohol. In my Back2MAC pile I found an empty blot powder compact. It has a mirror, no dodgy clear plastic lid, & a large pan, perfect to re-press a MSF.

SOFT & GENTLE MINERALIZED SKINFINISH BROKEN RE-PRESSING PROCESS

The pictures probably make it obvious, but I:

1. Put the MSF chunks into the cup.
2. Broke them down into a powder using the spoon.
3. Mixed in alcohol until it reached a smooth paste consistency, like softened butter.
4. Scooped the paste into the empty pan.

SOFT & GENTLE MINERALIZED SKINFINISH BROKEN V RE-PRESSED

After spreading the paste out with the spoon, I waited for it to dry.. 10mins later, I got bored of waiting, so dried it with a hairdryer. I then pressed the product down with some fabric (pre-boiled & dried) wrapped around a disinfected cuticle cream tin lid. Hygiene all the way.

The pressed powder looks lighter than the broken MSF, but in the swatch below they look pretty similar. The unpressed powder is softer & powdery, which may or may not result in the small difference in colour.

SOFT & GENTLE MINERALIZED SKINFINISH BROKEN V RE-PRESSED SWATCH
TOP: PRESSED SOFT & GENTLE, BOTTOM: LOOSE SOFT & GENTLE

I think it worked out pretty well. It ended up looking like a beauty powder because of the format & packaging, which I prefer. The whole process reminded me of baking, which was pretty odd considering I was ‘cooking’ cosmetics.
