Nancy D: YSL semi-loose powder is the ONLY powder on the market that does not alter the color of your foundation. Every other loose powder on the market is either white, providing no coverage or a white cast OR is a deeper color, making the face a darker color than the neck. Feb 16, 2014

nicole c asked: does the piece of metal twist to release powder then twist to close the holes so powder doesnt spill out into lid during traveling? Mar 5, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
JULYIA K: Nicole,
Unfortunately the shaver does not close any holes to eliminate spillage. The metal shaves the compacted powder so that you receive fresh illuminating powder. You do have to be very conservative with how much you shave or else you may have extra powder shifting around. However, there is a plastic piece that comes with the product that helps it to not spill during travel. This product is great and makes you feel so rejuvenated and even has the best fresh smell to it!

Chennie H: I in fact have one of these, the answer is no. It doesn't spill any powder. Think of it as a grater, from what I can see, the power underneath is pressed powder and the metal twist only serves to grind the powder. I hope this helps.

Cheers,
Chennie

Hui Z: the powder won't loose unless the metal twist, there is a clear plastic between the hole and the brush.

The powder won't spill out.

Ellen G: Keep the plastic insert to keep the innards tidy. The cicles do not have a close function but instead work to release more powder as you turn. Mar 5, 2012

A shopper asked: does this product keep your face fro getting oily/shiny all day? Jan 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alyson D: I'm 58 years old with fair skin and in general I don't have a problem with over oily or shiny skin. However when I put my makeup on (I use YSL touche eclat and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it) I find there is a lovely sheen to it but it needs to have the overall shine taken off for a more natural look. For this the Poudre Sur Mesure is fantastic! It well may also work for someone with a more oily skin but I can't comment to that. All I know is I brush this on lightly with either the enclosed brush which is great or my own super big powder brush and my face stays exactly as I've applied it ALL DAY LONG. No problem. No touch up required. This powder seems to last forever: although I use it daily I seem to not need to buy a new one for years. Thus it is extra great that you grind it freshly as you need it. Brilliant! This is a must have product for my daily beauty regime. Hope you enjoy it also. Jan 23, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Janice K: I think you should go with medium to compliment your complexion. By the way this powder is amazing it's fresh every time you use it . The packaging is designed to prepare the exact amount that you will need for each application. It's genius. Oct 16, 2013
Reply to Janice Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Carol P: I have a very light complexion, so I bought shade 1 Ivory. I love it. It tones down the pink in my complexion. If you have medium complexion, you might go with 2 Sand or 3 Amber, depending on the undertones of your complexion. Oct 16, 2013
