THIS PRODUCT BROKE ME OUT......NO GOOD. I started noticing "congestion" on my chin....lots of little clogged pores that soon turned into worse looking bumps.
It also made me very shiny/oily after only a few hours. I needed to blot or touch up in a majorly bad way!
I didn't like it at all.....its going back to Sephora asap!
I really liked this powder, but I like Marcelle's even better, and especially the price!
Like all the other reviewers said it did leave a very nice finish paired with LM TM. But because of it's price, I won't be re-purchasing.
FINALLY! A translucent powder that's ACTUALLY translucent. Before I discovered the wonderful world of Laura Mercier powders, I was stuck using powders that were allegedly 'translucent'...but in actuality they made my super pale skin look orangey/pinky...not exactly the look I was going for.
Like all of LM's powders, this one is super, super finely milled...it honestly feels like silk...you really can't go wrong with this product. And the container is very generously sized for the price...not a bad deal at all.
I'm currently waiting for my Aveda order to arrive (still on the quest for the ever-elusive foundation that will be pale enough for me!) and have ordered a container of their translucent powder as well out of curiosity (I'm a makeup junkie, what can I say?!)...I'm curious to see which one wins out...will update once I've compared both products! :-)
This is my favorite loose setting powder.
For all the fair girls out there - who's "translucent" powders leave them beige or orange even thought they are supposed to be invisible - this stuff is amazing.
I did not feel like it really help set my make up. Also I felt it made me look a lot paler.
This powder is amazing! I use it to set my liquid foundation and this makes all my pores less visible! I tried the pressed version of this powder but it wasn't as good as the loose one.
love this loose powder, before it i used benefit powder and i hate that. it is easy to apply and even after you apply it ,you feel nothing but looks great. it can last long and traslucent is great for me!
i use this powder to set my liquid & cream foundation...goes on translucent and gives me a beautiful matte, polished look...prefer this over blot loose...only have to blot once.
I read so many great reviews on this, but it just didn't work for me! I found that it left a cast on me and didn't do anything for my skin. I've never had the best luck with powders, but I was hoping that this would be different. It seems to be well formulated and is very finely milled, but on me it was totally obvious I was wearing powder. Yuck!
I love this stuff. I have been using it for years after my step sister turned me on to it. I put it on over my foundation and it gives my face such a nice natural looking finish. I really freak out when I dont have it. Its gentle enough for my sensitive and acne prone skin. It does not make me break out. Its a resonable price. And it lasts forever.
