Sooo...I took the Chanel plunge the other day and this is what I got...
-Base Lumiere
-Mat Lumiere
-The gel concealer (its the one in the tube with wand...I forgot the name)
-Poudre Cristalline

I have VERY VERY oily skin! I use to be on Accutane, and stopped about 2 months ago (my choice...will NEVER use that stuff again!!!) and my oilies have come back. I use to wear EL Double Wear...however, I just felt like they did not have a good color match. I wanted to try the Mat Lumiere because I need a fuller coverage due to acne scares and not having perfect skin. There I was able to get an AMAZING match in the Lumiere! Now here is my problem...I don't really feel very matte at all! I don't want to give up because it makes my skin look so nice!
I am wondering if it could be the base...or maybe I need to try a different Chanel setting powder? I am also wondering if I should keep the powder I have, lose the base, and get the Purete Idele Serum in its place?
Any advise would be GREAT! I know nothing about Chanel makeup/skin care products! :flowers:

I stopped Accutane because my hair was falling out:shocked: I'm still shedding hair...NOT pleased at all! We tried dropping me as low as the dose could go (10mg), and it still did not work. I will NEVER go near that stuff again!

Missjenny, if you think you don't feel completely matte with the Mat Lumiere powder, it's because it's not. The original was a lot better. I use the Mat Lumiere, too and I get what you mean about it making you look better. It makes you look super soft with good coverage. I just wanted to let you know it's not in your head. If you want a super matte look, you're not going to achieve it with that powder-I know because I use a pretty drying foundation.

I'm thinking about going for a more natural look, so if I find another Chanel powder that's really matte, I'll post about it.
