Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Review March 23 2017, 0 Comments
I was never deeply into makeup, or a huge follower of makeup trends while growing up, but how that time has changed in my life!
As a teenager in university, I am absolutely in love with makeup. It gives me the self-confidence I need to go win and have an awesome day. Usually, after concealing my under eyes, my skin looks a little dry and uneven. After concealing, I ‘bake’ as some call it, using the amazing Laura Mercier translucent powder under my eyes, just to brighten up my skin, and set my concealer in place. This product has completely revolutionized my makeup. It gives me just the perfect amount of coverage I need and makes my skin look smooth and oil-free.
It’s a great step to add to the makeup routine, especially for a flawless finish, and mostly working on preventing too much of a cakey look. The powder works wonders to cover up my obvious dark circles and sets my face so wonderfully. It is a bit expensive, for setting powder, but the investment is so worth it, and the powder goes a long way. I usually just blend this in with a makeup brush or use a beauty blender to conceal under my eyes and highlight my forehead. The product comes with a petite puff, but I prefer using a makeup brush to effectively blend the powder into my skin.
If you suffer from combination skin, like mine which is both oily and dry, this product is perfect for you. I would recommend it a 100% since it eliminates all the extra shine and gives you a flawless matte finish. This powder is perfect on the go, I got my travel sized powder from Sephora, and it’s great to use for a little touch up to keep my skin looking bright and fresh all day. What I absolutely love about this product is the sheer finished look of it, it doesn’t look like you applied any sort of powder on your skin, yet it brightens your face, and highlights all your features in the right places.
This is an amazing application before a photo shoot, and it gives you the perfect coverage for a natural look. I would recommend this product for anyone who is not satisfied with average loose powders that wear off by the end of the day. Believe me, this product can hold your makeup in place and looks so beautiful with it if applied correctly. I love testing different products, and this is by far one of the best loose setting powder that came my way so far.
