Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Review
A lot of youtubers are talking about it, I even see this product on many blogs. But is the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder really worth the hype?
I wanted to find that out, so I went to a store called Skins in Groningen (The Netherlands). As far as I know that’s the only store that sells Laura Mercier products. I haven’t used products from that brand before, but I have heard a lot of good things about it. It was pretty expensive though… I got it for €42,00.
Let’s talk about the Packaging:
The packaging is very minimal and simple, but I didn’t expect the jar to be plastic… That kind of threw me off because it feels cheap, while the product is supposed to look and feel luxurious for the price you’re paying.
It also has that packaging that every other loose setting powder has, it could get messy real quick… How I like to dose the powder is to flip it over maybe tap on it if I want a bit more powder. I’ll use the powder that stuck to the bottom of the cap. That way you don’t have to try and pour it into the cap.
Now some basic info about the Translucent Loose Powders from Laura Mercier:
Translucent means that it doesn’t have a tint to it, so it’s basically invisible powder that works for every skin tone. They have different options of the loose translucent setting powders, there’s a matte one, a shimmering one and a brightening one that is specially made for setting your concealer. The one for your concealer is cheaper (€26,-). But you can also use the matte or shimmering one for setting your concealer.
The one I got was matte because my nose and cheeks tend to get oily. When I first applied the powder to my whole face I was blown away! It doesn’t look like you have any powder on, it also doesn’t cling to dry spots. The best way to describe how this powder looks, is as if your face is photoshopped!
How I like to use it is after applying my liquids (foundation, concealer etc.) If you apply a skin toned or translucent powder to your face first, your blush, contour, highlight and more can blend easier. I often experienced that if I didn’t use a powder before applying blush, it would become patchy… But no more! I also use the powder for setting my concealer, and it really makes a difference. The concealer under my eyes doesn’t separate through out the day anymore.
