|Laura Mercier Tranlucent Loose Powder :: Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder|
Today we’re talking go-to powders! And for me, there’s none I like better than the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder, both in the loose and pressed variety. When it comes to makeup, powder seems like such an old fashion and boring product, that can really matte and cake-ify my complexion. There’s nothing worse than blending on your foundation to a perfect, natural complexion — only to ruin it with a setting powder. All that hard work out the window! Gone.
That is unless I’m going with the Laura Mercier, which is light and virtually unnoticeable atop my foundation. It sets everything into place without messing too much with the shade and finish. Where other powders kick it to the back, concealing it’s coverage and finish…this allows my foundation to remain the star of the show! It’s preserving foundation for longer wear – not covering it up.
And this truly is translucent. It’s the go-to powder of Oprah! Hello! The fact that you don’t have to bother with finding a good color match only adds to my love of this. For one, colored powders do add more ‘coverage’ to your face as discussed above…but for two, being translucent you don’t have to worry and second guess yourself. No matter what your skintone, the translucent powder will work beautifully for you. Amen.
Of course I have to mention the texture of these powders, which is so soft and weightless. The loose powder is so finely milled that it blends into your skin so smoothly. It’s like the powder vanishes into thin air on your face! Magic makeup!
I’m not the type of girl to throw around the term holy grail often, but by measure of just how frequently I reach for this product and how much I believe in it: it’s definitely holy grail material. It boosts the wear of any foundation, with such a beautiful natural finish. For me, touching up my face is a major pain in the arse that I don’t like to bother with. Fortunately, these powders create such a perfect surface that I don’t even have to bother! A+++!
