Couleur Caramel Compact Powder and Sun Powder

October 3, 2010

So at the beginning of the week I discussed Couleur Caramel, and my nifty palette. It holds 4 eye shadows and 2 face powders. Lets start with face powders. Couleur Caramel has an assortment of powders. Minerals, Loose, Bronzers, Sun Powders, and Compact Powders. Theres a powder to suit everyone’s taste. My poor empty palette, it needs some friends, lets fill it!

The 2 I will be discussing today are the Compact Powder and Sun Powder.  

Sunpowder on the top, a shimmery, nude, peach color. Compact Powder on the bottom, sheer, soft, velvety in texture.

The Sun Powder, as the french call it. Is kind of a mixture of 2 powders we generally use here in the US. It isn’t matte. It is shimmery. I would call it a combination of a luminizing/highlighting powder. Gives you that subtle glow. Non-cakey, very sheer fine texture. It controls shine and evens the complexion, while giving it a touch of shimmer courtesy of mother of pearl particles. Silky and smooth, it gives your skin a subtle shimmer glow. Use all over or to shade your face. Available in 6 Colours.

The Compact Powder control oil, use to set make-up, or use alone on bare skin, for sheer coverage. Velvety, Silky,and Super smooth. When you run your finger over it, its so soft. It has the finest super soft texture. Yes, I know I just said this, it literally feels like silk in between your fingers. And on your face it feels amazing. Excellent for touch ups throughout the day. It comes in 7 Colours this is the lightest shade, for the most fair porcelain of skins.
