The Universal Compact

Chanel Poudre Universelle Compacte Natural Finish Pressed Powder is definitely a mouthful to say but it is one of the nicest pressed powders I have tried. 

The finely textured translucent powder leaves behind a matte and soft finish that feels comfortable on the skin and lasts all day. The powder acts like a light loose powder but is an easy to use pressed compact. 

To be honest, I purchased this powder for the compact itself seeing as it is so sleek and pretty and I just felt compelled to have a Chanel compact in my makeup bag. It was really no surprise that I fell in love with the product since I have always loved Chanel's cosmetics.

It is a great setting powder but I mostly use it for touchups and oil control throughout the day. 

The only downside is the minimal amount of shades it is available in (only 4) but it does transfer pretty sheer on the skin so you shouldn't have a problem finding a colour match.

If you're in need of a pretty pressed powder compact, definitely give these a try.
