Claudia Louch Compact Pressed Powder

Tuesday, 17 November 2015

Hello Beauties! You may remember a while ago that I posted about the Claudia Louch Mint Exfoliating Facial Polish, and since then I've become obsessed with the brand. They're a little bit more expensive than I would normally like, but I'm a big believer in 'you get what you pay for'. Today I thought I would share with you the latest product which I've been trying from Claudia Louch, their Compact Pressed Powder. As an oily skinned girl, I've always been pretty obsessed with powder, to the point where I feel lost without it when I accidentally leave it at home, so always relish the opportunity to try new brands and types. 

The Claudia Louch Compact Pressed Powder, like all Claudia Louch products, is 94% natural, hypoallergenic, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic (so it doesn't block pores) and free from fragrances and harsh chemicals including paragons and SLS, making it suitable for all skin tones and conditions - a pretty impressive list if you ask me, and one which is extremely important for girls like myself who do suffer with extremely sensitive skin and acne. The powder claims to set makeup and reduce shine, whilst also providing coverage, which is exactly what I look for in a powder. 

As you can see from the swatches above, the shade I have is quite dark compared to my skin tone, meaning that I can't really use it as a powder (I'd look like I'd been the victim of a particularly bad spray tan), I did put it to the test as a powder - just on a day where I didn't have to leave the house. Whilst I looked silly with my extremely dark face, the powder actually worked a treat. It managed to give me that little bit of extra coverage I need to achieve that 'airbrushed' look and also kept my skin shine free for an acceptable amount of time, so really my only complaint is the shade, which can be easily rectified with a little online shopping! As this powder is clearly too dark to be used as a face powder, I've been making the most of having it in my collection and using it as a bronzer. I often use darker face powders as bronzers and contour products as I find they have more of a natural tone to them and look less harsh on the skin, so all is not lost. 

Overall, I really did like this powder, and when my current MAC Studio Fix runs out, I will definitely consider buying the lighter shade - even if it is an eye watering £52.50! 

Lots of Love,

  1. Wow the price really is eye watering although it does sound like a lovely product. I hate when you get the wrong shade and it turns out to be amazing but is made completely redundant!

  2. It is always nice when you find a makeup brand you really love. Even though this is pricey it makes me happy that you love the quality so much!

  3. too bad is dark, maybe use it as a bronzer? :D

  4. Oh my, that's pricey indeed. I'd opt for the Chanel Les Beiges. Their darker powders make for great bronzers, very subtle, they just give a sun-kissed glow without making it too obvious. This seems too orange even as bronzer.
