I’ve actually never tried a Chanel powder before, so can’t tell the limited edition Chanel Poudre Universelle Beige Lumiere from any other. I tend to steer as far as I can from powders because they all (with the exception of Dior) make my skin feel dry.
However, this is an ultra fine powder that you need the tiniest, tiniest amount of to get a shine reducing finish and it’s very similar to Dior in feel – in that it doesn’t feel particularly dry. If you’re shiny and you love a powder to just ‘set’ your look, then it’s delicious (don’t use the puff, use a kabuki). Beige Lumiere is a radiance boosting shade.. I can’t say in all honestly my radiance was boosted! But my nose wasn’t shiny and I didn’t hate it. It’s in the keep drawer for further experimentation. Chanel Poudre Universelle Beige Lumiere launches on 18th September for £36.

I cant wait to try this ❤️
Hello Jane I love your blog and have recently discovered you through Sali Hughes interview. Are you no longer posting on YouTube? I have heard you mention Periscope? Not sure what this is – is it instead of you tube? I am the same age as you and it is positively refreshing to find such an informative blog and rejoice in my love of all things beautiful x
Thank you so much Elisabeth – I do the occasional You Tube but not so much now to be honest (although I was thinking of doing one this week) but yes, I’m regularly on Persicope (@britbeautyblog) which is a live broadcast app. It’s still quite new which is why I like it so please do join me there if you think you’d like it. It’s usually a five or 10 minute broadcast on any subject but with beauty at the core. x
Thanks for the reply Jane and I will check it out. X
My experience with Chanel powders isn’t good so I don’t think I’ll ever try another one, which is a real shame because it was a dream purchase for me!
I have the original version and LOVE it so this sounds even more interesting. Will have to check it out. x
