If you want your skin to stay matte all day, or if you're looking for a solution to stop shine in its tracks, then look no further. Translucent, tinted, green, vegan, organic... There are lots of mineral powders to choose from. Find out more about your future beauty must-have, with Absolution's certified-organic mineral powder.
What is a mineral powder?
Mineral powder is a product that you apply at the end of your makeup routine to mattify the face and set makeup. It can also be used on its own after your daytime moisturizer, for a smooth, translucent complexion and a blurred finish.
If you have combination or oily skin, you'll love a mineral powder's ability to absorb excess sebum. It's also easily portable, so you can slip it into your bag and take it anywhere for touch-ups during the day, to keep your complexion looking fresh, luminous, smooth and even.
Mineral powder should be applied with a special (quite wide) powder brush or a powder puff. This allows you to apply the powder without compromising the makeup already on your face.
You'll find two types of powder: loose powder (like La Poudre Christophe Danchaud) and compact powder, which is also called pressed powder. There are translucent powders, whose aim is simply to mattify the skin, and others that are tinted and provide more coverage, for a smooth and flawless makeup look.
Why use a certified-organic mineral powder?
A mineral powder comes into direct contact with your skin. In combination with your skincare products, it establishes a barrier between your skin and environmental aggressors. By using an organic powder, you can be sure of choosing the safest, cleanest option for your skin, your health, and the planet!
When Absolution set itself the objective of creating the ideal loose powder, it once again joined forces with celebrity makeup artist, Christophe Danchaud, to provide a clean, green makeup solution, free of controversial ingredients. The result is a powder that offers both skincare and makeup benefits. Certified organic and vegan, it cares for all skin types, and can be used on all skin tones.
La Poudre Christophe Danchaud
La Poudre is an ultra-fine, loose mineral powder that's invisible on the face. It sets makeup, lights up the complexion, and gives a very natural matte finish. Pores appear tightened, fine lines are softened, and skin feels smooth and velvety. Like all our makeup products, it's made with very talented, complementary active ingredients, which ensure that it cares for the skin too.
Silica, of 100% natural mineral origin, is perfect for minimizing the appearance of pores and setting makeup. It mattifies without drying, and gives a very natural, velvety finish.
Corn Starch, with excellent absorbent properties, helps to control sebum production without any caking. It also has soothing benefits, making it ideal for sensitive and reactive skin.
Hyaluronic Acid delivers intense, long-lasting hydration. Thanks to this ingredient, La Poudre can be used without hesitation on dry skin!
Honokiol, an active molecule derived from the magnolia plant, offers antioxidant properties. Used for centuries in Oriental medicine, it protects skin against oxidative stress.
La Poudre is available in two shades: La Poudre 10.1 (light) is recommended for fair complexions, while La Poudre 10.2 (medium) is ideal for darker skin tones and tanned skin. With its organic formula and natural active ingredients, it's a can't-go-wrong loose powder for all skin types – even the most sensitive.
