Rated 5 out of 5 by from velvet perfection Translucence is the best powder on earth. As I noted in my review title, velvet perfection is how I'd describe the look it gives me. I am 60 years old and my skin is not great . . . but you'd never know it if you saw me wearing Translucence over my foundation. I went into shock went I saw that it's been discontinued. Why? It's rated so highly! And there's no replacement powder in a compact? Lancome, I beg of you, please don't take Translucence away from me!
Date published: 2017-11-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discontinued...NO NO NO I'm so disappointed this powder is being discontinued. My makeup has not been the same without this powder. I'm afraid I will need to find another brand, and I have been using this for years. I purchased the Dual Finish and having issues with the color. I used 350 in the translucence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite So glad to be able to order my compact powder from Macy's. I understand it is being discontinued soon and I am very disappointed. At least I was able to get two for future use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silky finish I've used this translucent powder since it came out after Lancome discontinued their previous translucent compact. I use a primer, sheer liquid foundation, & then set with this powder using a large brush. The result is natural looking, my skin but better, without looking caked on. It doesn't give much coverage (if any), but isn't designed to do so.
Date published: 2017-10-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for mid-day touch ups I use this to set my foundation and touch up during the day. Goes on very silky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best face powder I love this powder. you can use it as dry on makeup, on bare skin, or you you can apply it as wet with's worth of every penny. I love quality products because I have sensitive skin and I can't apply everything on my skin. But this powder is my favorite, it gives me good coverage and nice color. I always buy this one when I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff!!! Feels so good on your skin and looks very natural.
Date published: 2017-03-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best powder ever! Looks natural all day and into the evening. Best results result when the powder is applied lightly with a brush - I am not a fan of the spongy applicator included.
Date published: 2017-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great even without the foundation! Like the Lanc�me foundation I wear, I wear this powder to bring it all home. And it's sensational. When I'm on the go running errands, I don't go the whole nine years with my makeup so I just put on the powder and go. I still look fresh faced and great. It doesn't need to be constantly applied. Once in the morning after the foundation, and maybe if I'm off to happy hour again in the afternoon. Perfect powder!!

What are the ingredients of this powder?

I have breakouts whenever I use this powder and the 24H Teint Idole Ultra. I heard on another website that the powder contains coconut ingredients, which would explain the breakouts. It's a shame, b/c I really love the powder. Thanks.
