This powder is very popular, and I think it would look very nice if I had normal or oily skin, but it just does not work for me. I have tried it twice over the years, and the most recent experience left me with very irritated eyes after I used it to set my under eyes and breakouts on my chin when I went over foundation. I looked at the ingredients, and I am not exactly sure what would've caused my eyes to itch, but I think the breakouts were probably courtesy of the soybean oil. My quest for the perfect setting powder continues on, I guess.

Very disappointed in this product...it's $42 and is similar to a drugstore $12 highlighter. It STRAIGHT UP has GLITTER in it. As in, my face is in direct sunlight and someone blew finely milled glitter onto my cheekbones. (also bc the glitter is so finely milled, this powder has major kick up and dust flies everywhere and even if you apply to your cheeks, some will end up on other parts of your face and you'll have glitter face.)I recently bought the Makeup Revolution Radiance Palette for $15 at Ulta and like that SO much better. It is finely milled with no glitter - just a subtle sheen that makes your skin glow.I honestly think this product is hyped as is the LM Translucent powder. They are both ok products but certainly not mind blowing holy grail products that people say they are - and certainly NOT worth $42. If you must try it still, keep your receipt.

Well I may have received an old batch - I purchased the Cobblestone and can't use it because it doesn't glide whatsoever. It's dry and impossible for me to work with. So my experience is a big fat NO. I purchased the LM in Moonlight as well and it's creamy and smooth - glides on easily but has too much shimmer - really it's more of a glitter (but Cobblestone is definitely matte. And dry, in my experience).Soooo I've discovered the Bareminerals 5-in-1 bb cream eyeshadow and it is the best of all the shadow sticks I've purchased - especially since so many brands that carry this type of eyeshadow have at least a small amount of glitter or shimmer in them. The 5-in-1 isn't really a "stick" but comes in a tube with a wand to apply. It's soooo smooth and creamy and beautiful.... I have 4 shades and they're all fabulous! Very easy to apply just patting it on with fingers and they blend beautifully and easily. Also, I've been using the 5-in-1 Candlelight Peach, Blushing Apricot or the Barely Nude as an all over lid primer and they hold up all day - I'd say up to about 12 hours. They're very smooth, and even after about 6 hours there's no creasing, which for me is almost unheard of.Their Gorgeous Greige (bought on eBay) is a nice taupey-gray matte, FYI.

Why on earth i didn't try this earlier...!!! i am asian with single eyelid and i rather do my eyes except for special occasion cause it just take so damn long to do smokey eyes....das my only option because simple look with just eyeliner simply doesn't show when i open my eyes....it takes so long to blend eyeshadow with eye primar and everything...also i have oily eyelid so if they are not done right...or i try to be lazy and skip the primer then everything goes to the bottom of my eyes within half an hour...With this i was able to do my eyes so quickly....instead of blending eye primer first..all i i need is swipe some oil controlling powder on top and underneath quickly then two strokes of the stick then blend out with a brush....then mascara then i'm good to go....it might still seems liked alot of you people who is blessed with nice defined eyes......but for me this is so much easier already!!!!the most important thing is da it doesn't smudge even when i put it to the test to wear it at the gym!!!!!!!1 i'm just so excitedd!!!the color i bought is cocoa which is perfect cool toned brown for everyday and no need for eyelliner....!!!highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well. it's very lightly pigmented in a pale pink. pales my lips, which i don't like to do anymore. as far as laura mercier lip products are concerned i think it is the stick glosses that are outstanding.
