Absolue Powder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Powder! This powder is so pretty and the color is really nice. I am a strawberry blonde (with some gray:) with medium yellow skin tone and this is perfect. The only thing I would say is use caution as to how much you use as it tends to look really shimmery if you use too much. It will also make your pores look larger if you overdue it. A little goes a long way and I use a different type of brush to apply less of this. If you remember Lancome's loose powder that used to come in the black container, and smelled to good by the way, this reminds me very much of that powder as it used to have a nice shimmer to it. Also, the container is bigger than the regular powder but there is less product in it which is a little bit misleading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Powder Ever I love this powder! I was using the Mineral type powder on my face and noticed that I looked older than my years and that fine smile lines around my eyes were accentuated! So, I went back to the wonderful powder I used to use. Why did I ever leave? I look ten years younger and I GLOW!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Color I purchased the Absolue Ecru Light Powder for summer use when I have a slight tan. I trusted the color sample in the photo, it was not even close. This color has a very rich copper tone, very brassy. I will definitely return this and exchange it for Peche, which is absolutely beautiful and perfect for my skin tone (fair, but not very fair) in the winter months. I would recommend this product, but not this color for blue-eyed, fair skinned women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This powder is awesome sauce! I'm 53, with dry skin & live in southeastern Arizona = super dry! This lightweight silky powder doesn't settle into my lines or makes my sky look dry. It gives my skin a luminous effect, I would recommend this to women of any age, to wear alone or over their makeup. Love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Powder! Have been using this for a few wks. I like it! Feels nice and seems to help set my makeup, which is liquid foundation. I have dry skin, and this powder is not drying. I did not give it 5 stars because so far, I have not seen a whole lot of dif in any powder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural looking with great coverage! I have been using the Absolue Powder for about 9 months. I started using it along with the cushion foundation, in place of the Dual Finish I had been using for over 25 years. I have reddish skin due to acne rosacea, and I can use this powder alone for a light polished look. If used after the cushion foundation, it gives a very clear clean look. The powder is silky and blends easily, and my skin feels protected and slightly dewy, with out looking shiny or overly made up. Now that I am 51, I care a little bit more about how I look, but I don't have time to be fussy. I allot 5 minutes to my foundation and lip gloss, and combing my eyebrows. I spend about 4 minutes blow drying and brushing my long hair. I am pretty much wash and wear, so this powder fits perfectly into my routine with my hectic life. When my work day ends about 12 hours after applying this powder, I still look somewhat pulled together, and my face is still relatively matte. I can't say enough good things about the Absolue Powder!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous powder! This powder is the Cadillac of powders. It goes on like silk. You can apply less or more depending on the coverage you desire. It is lovely and it simply makes you glow. It is my favorite! I wish it came in travel size to keep in my purse all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks fresh all day I LOVE this powder! Ultra fine texture goes on extremely smoothly, gives light coverage, never cakes or accentuates the fine lines I'm trying to conceal. Easily lasts at least 8 hours without getting shiny. I'm a very fair skinned with blue eyes and the Ecru Light shade works well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! An excellent product, this loose powder provides great coverage but is, at the same time, very sheer. I can use this powder without needing to apply foundation under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This powder made my face glow and look flawless. Love the colors Peche and golden and can use them both. Peche is more of a neutral color and golden is more visible and is perfect if you want to add some color to your face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite setting powder! Lancome Absolue Powder left me with a flawless look, doesn't cake or settle and little bit goes along way. What I love most about the product is I have oily skin & with the Absolute Powder I didn't need to keep applying it. I received the products compliments of Lancome for my honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great powders even if you have dry skin These powder not only set your makeup, they help with the appearance with pores and imperfections and also leave a beautiful luminous glow to the skin without being shimmery. These will be a staple for me in summer. I received 2 shades from Octoly in Golden and Peche and they both work for my light to medium skin tone.
Date published: 2017-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I WAS SHOCKED! I received 2 colors Golden and Pêche thanks to Lancôme and Octoly and I was skeptical and scared because I have very oily skin. Well, I SHOCKED when I applied Pêche on my face I was so shocked how it made my imperfections disappear that I couldn't speak! It gives you that glow within look and I know everyone stresses that phrase but this really gives you that look PLUS makes all you fine lines, wrinkles and pores totally disappear and I mean they leave your face!!!! It doesn't cake up doesn't settle into your fine lines or wrinkles. It's tiny tiny micro powder and it makes you skin so soft ughhhh I can't even speak I highly recommend this powder!! Now my fair skin girls in my opinion I don't think Golden would work for you girls because it has like a pinkish color, it doesn't go on and make your skin pink put its more for medium and deep skin ladies so Pêche would be perfect for fair, light and medium skin ladies. I love this powder and No it did NOT make my skin look more oil then it is it's just a perfect setting powder that gives you that glow look and makes dry skin disappear as well as all your imperfections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great non-drying loose powder Been trying every loose powder out there to find a good replacement to use. This powder is a sheer wash of color but it is non-drying and leaves my skin just matte enough to still be luminous. I have not had it change color over concealer nor oxidize during the day. I really don't like Laura Merciea loose powder is way to drying for my skin ! I have very dry skin so finding a loose setting powder that is not to drying is always a challenge. My skin is an 'NC20' (medium color with golden tone) and this powder is perfect... not too light to be chalky not too dark. The color got was 'Absolute Ecru Light' radiant smoothing powder.

Which color would match best with Teint Miracle 110 IVO C?

Asked by: Lauren
I'd recommend either ecru light or pesche. If you want a slight sheen, I'd choose pesche is the way to go, which is my favorite. I hope this helps!

I wear Renergie lift porcelane 20 foundation. what shade in the Absolue powder would you suggest?

Normal skin
Asked by: Jovi
I use Renergie Porcelane 20 and use Absolue Powder in Peche. It is fairly transparent and light weght and does not really change the color or tone of the foundation. It just smoothes out the finish and gives a nice glow.

Asked by: moncherie
I would use POWDER BRUSH #1. I have the previous version of this brush - with silver colored handle, and I absolutely love it. For some reason the new model with black handle has bad reviews. Can't comment on that, as I don't really own this particular one.

Is Absolue Powder meant to be used as a foundation or as a finishing powder?

I am 45 and do need a powder that provides coverage. I used to use the Mineral Saphire Complex Powder but you no longer carry my shade. Would the Absolue Powder be a suitable replacement as a foundation powder? Thank you, Jennifer Delaney
Asked by: Noemi
I use it as a finishing powder, and I don't use any foundation. By my mind this product provides sufficient coverage - to use as "day" make-up. For "evening go out" option I would still use foundation underneath. I'm not big on makeup really. Never use foundation on the daily basis. Hope this helps.

please tell me how to remove the plastic lid with holes on the Absolue powder jar. Any suggestions?

I don't know if I am using this product correctly, but I can't open the plastic lid with holes to get to the powder.
Asked by: Pamm
Ladies, forget subtleness! Grab a pair of pliers, pry up the lid & discard it!! I've been doing this for years. Touch your brush lightly to the powder, tap it against the side & apply. Voila !
