Yves Saint Laurent ,Lancome, Elizabeth Arden powder comparison

 Happy Monday lovelies, I hope you all are doing great.  Last week was quite tough for me and as you noticed I couldn't even post normally. Things are little better now so I'm  back to blogging. Today I decided to compare my experience about these  Yves Saint Laurent Matt and Radiant, Lancome Translucence and Elizabeth Arden Flawless finish pressed powders:


I always enjoy reading about different kind of product comparisons, it makes me easily figure out which one will suit my needs , so I hope this post will be interesting for those of you who are looking for a pressed powder. Ok, so let's start with packaging. 

Packaging 

Ives Saint Laurent 'Matt and Radiant' pressed powder  (read my review Here) and Elizabeth Arden 'Flawless Finish' powder (read my review Here) have  beautiful golden packaging, very luxurious look, while Lancome 'Translucence' Mattifying silky powder has modest , simple black packaging. 


                                                Coverage

Ives Saint Laurent 'Matt and Radiant' pressed powder is very lightweight and smooth, it's so light and silky that if I don't make perfect, even foundation, before I apply it, this YSL powder will not be able to cover imperfections.

Elizabeth Arden 'Flawless Finish' powder is also lightweight, but it's not as smooth as YSL one, it's more like, powder-y, and it can cover little imperfections of the skin. But I personally wouldn't wear it without some foundation.

Lancome 'Translucence' Mattifying silky powder has medium coverage. Since I don't have any blemishes, or wrinkles on my face, I  can easily wear this powder without any foundation to get some light-to-medium coverage. it's not too smooth or too powder-y, (if  this is the word I can use here).

                                 

                                        Which one  I would repurchase? 
Definitely Lancome. I actually repurchased one time and will do it in future as well. Don't take me wrong, I love both YSL and Elizabeth Arden powders, I enjoy wearing them but not enough, to repurchase them.

Have you tried any of these powders? Let me know in the comments below, and have a lovely day.

  3. I've not tried these, but by the sounds of it I would choose Lancome too. I like wearing a powder without foundation sometimes.

  12. This is the kind of beauty blog that I like! I'm used to read reviews of low-cost beauty products, but I am way too worried about the components to fall for the price. My skin is sensitive and I only use this type of brands. The powder I'm using right now is Clinique oil-free, I really like the coverage, the only thing is it lasts only eight hours in perfect state, but my dermatologists says that's a good thing for my skin.

    Great post
    I follow you now, and hope to read you soon again

  14. I have never tried using only powder as base but I have seen many swears by it! The Lancome powder sounds promising, definitely something I'll check out.

  19. I think I also would go for the Lancome one, for the medium coverage. I don't really like foundations, so I like powder to give a bit of coverage, so the Lancome one seems better to me!

  26. Lancome has a lot of great products and I feel like they are underrated in the beauty world. A lot of women would go to MAC before they buy a Lancome product, only if they knew what they were missing out on. One of my all time favorite perfumes is by Lancome and everytime I wear it people go nuts over it. Awesome post love the detailed comparisons.

  37. I definitely need to check out Lancome products more often. Every time I'm at a department store or Sephora, I always gravitate toward the other brands and skip over Lancome. Everyone always has nothing but good things to say about it.
