Chacott Loose Powder Review// Chacott 舞台專用定妝碎粉

This review is probably long overdue. I have been testing this loose settling powder for over 3 months and it has slowly climbed onto my HG (Holy Grail) list. Reason? It sets makeup perfectly and keep your face fresh throughout the day.

早該寫這篇了, 用了Chacott 定妝碎粉超過3個月, 它已經在我的Holy Grail名單榜上有名. 很滿意著它的performance, 皆因定妝效果出色.
I remembered seeing this powder in magazines for ages but it was difficult to hunt this down at the stores. Chacott's makeup is produced for a ballet school so the entire line is for stage performers/theatrical use.

之前在無數的雜誌看到這瓶定妝碎粉已經很想試, 但不知在那裡有得賣. Chacott系列為舞台表演人士專用, 在日本很受女士們歡迎.
The jar holds 30g of powder and I chose #763, which is translucent/color-less. It's easiest to work with when you aren't sure which shade you should choose. There's also a High Definition one but I ended up with this one at the end.

瓶子裡有30克沫, 我選了#763, 透明色. 假如不確定配甚麼色的話, 選這個便好了. 透明色的還有高清系列!
The texture is silky and smooth. Since it doesn't list the ingredients I can't assure you whether it contains silica. My intuition tells me it has. Above: close-up of how fine it is.

質地幼滑, 由於無標明成份, 所以不清楚有無'矽', 直覺告訴我有. 上圖近鏡看看粉沫有多幼細.
Verdict: This powder sets and rests, comes in a 30g jar so I can't ask for more, really. The effect of this powder is most obvious after a day of wear (say 7-8 hours) and by that time my face would be shiny but it didn't happen. It controls oil extremely well. I am extremely satisfied with this gem. Please note that I can't be sure whether this loose powder breaks me out or not, I seemed to have breakouts here and there once in a while and its difficult to pin down which product that causes this. I switch and rotate beauty products like there's no tomorrow, lol. The only setback is that it's hard to find.

總評: 定妝+控油效果一流, 7-8小時都無溶妝的情況出現. 30g的容量確可以用足1 年 -.-; 難怪在日本那麼受歡迎了. 請留意我不能100%否定這瓶碎粉有否導致喑瘡/粒的出現, 我的習慣是會把不同的產品同時試用/使用. 還有, 這瓶碎粉都頗難找啊!

  7. 30g of silky smooth powder is love, Jen! I'm so happy you found an HG to top off your make up.

    Interestingly, that powder was made for ballerinas and I've always fancied about how angelic and smooth ballerinas always looked like. This must be heaven on the skin, eh?

  18. This reminds me a lot of MUFE's HD powder. This looks like a really good oil controlling powder though, and it doesn't look like it leaves a white cast like the MUFE one does. Thanks for the review!

  19. I like Chacott powder too! I managed to get the 170g one before they discontinued in 764! I am hoping to buy the HD version to try! ^^
