Caron Paris Swansdown Powder Puff Review

October 9, 2008
Caron Genuine Swansdown Powder Puff ($45)

I’m one of those annoying shoppers that has perpetual buyer’s remorse. You know the one: that friend you have who’s always saying, “Maybe I shouldn’t have bought this,” or “Do you really like it or just like it like it?” But for the first time I’ve splurged on something that I don’t feel the slightest bit guilty about–my very own magenta swan’s down puff!

At $45 a puff I’ll admit that these are rather pricey, but can you really put a price on pure luxury? Caron’s swan/goose down puffs are simply divine: featherlight, soft and fluffy as a cloud and absolutely perfect for loose powder application. I admit it–I’m deep in puff love!

The fluffy down fibers pick up and deposit the optimal amount of powder, making for no-mess powder application. Unlike a traditional powder puff which can drop your powder or create messy and wasteful powder clouds, the swandsdown puff grabs onto the powder and holds it until you’re ready to pat the powder onto your skin.

I was pretty amazed to see that after patting at my skin with the swansdown puff it came away clean with no residual powder remaining on it. I literally felt like I was patting at my face with a cloud, and my only regret was that I hadn’t purchased one of these sooner!

Caron’s swansdown powder puffs are available in a wide array of shades (ranging from peach to magenta to yellow and green) and various sizes.

If this fluffy little temptress has captured your heart, call the Caron boutique at 212-308-0270 and ask for Diane (tell her Jen sent you) to get one of your very own! You won’t be sorry! I plan on getting a few more in various colors when my wallet can handle it.
