Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($34) A silky, sheer setting powder. Infused with the finest French cashmere talc, this powder looks and feels natural. A unique light-reflecting ingredient creates a “soft-focus” appearance that smoothes fine lines and imperfections as it sets your makeup.
Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder has got to be the best setting powder I have ever used or tired so far. I was introduced to the powder by a Sephora SA who was begging me to allow her to give me makeover. You know how many companies claim their powder to be translucent but really they aren’t? You end up with a Casper/Vampire-esqe white face right? Well, this loose setting powder is truly transparent. I did not notice a white cast after I applied the powder. I even layered a thick layer just to make sure. Still no white cast. It’s a sheer powder that feels so smooth and soft. It is also very light weight. I love the finished look I get after using the powder. It gives my complexion a natural, flawless finish. I think it even brightened it! The powder keeps my face oil and shine free for about 5-6 hours and helps makes my makeup long lasting. I admit the $34 price tag nearly made my heart stop, but I think it’s worth it. A little goes a long way. Even with daily use, this will last you months and months. I cannot rave enough about it! Many thanks to the Sephora SA who introduced Laura Mercier’s Loose Setting Powder to me!
