Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder
This is a detailed product review on the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder.
The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder is a lightweight, silky, sheer powder that leaves the skin with a perfect finish. Infused with the best French cashmere talc, this powder is non-dusty and non-drying. It includes a special light-reflecting ingredient that forms a soft-focus look that hides fine lines and other imperfections. This review touches general information and benefits as well as pros and cons of the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder.
The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder feels and looks natural on all skin types. This oil-free, non-comedogenic product looks like it is, never going to cake or crease. It looks very silky and smooth. Although it isn’t as finely milled as is the case with other setting powders, it still performs well if not better. It is great for setting makeup, particularly on the oiliest part of your face. It keeps the oil at bay all day.
If you have dry skin and you use this product to set your makeup, you will find that it never emphasizes or highlights the dry patches, fine lines or skin pores. It conceals these imperfections. It sets your makeup without appearing too powdery or chalky. The trick here when using it for dry skin tone is to apply it sparingly with a brush.
Although the powder is referred to as transparent, it does have a bit beige tone when compared to HD white powders that look weird in flash photography. The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder makes your makeup look smooth and almost flawless. It doesn’t cake on the face.
The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder comes in loose powder form inside a small container. This powder is meant to be applied with a brush.
It gives you a smooth, silky and complete finish
It does not accentuate the dry patches, fine lines, and other facial imperfections if used sparingly or with care
It sets makeup perfectly and curbs oil all day
The fact that there is no white cast means it is perfect for flash photography
It gives a very sheer coverage, just the required amount
Some might find its finish too matte, as it takes away much of the shine and dewiness from the face
The puff is bigger than normal and does not fit into the container. Thus you may have to store it outside making it prone to dirt
The loose nature of this powder makes it not ideal for traveling with or not travel-friendly
The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder comes highly recommended. It is arguably a bargain purchase in the makeup market and is perfect for all skin types.
