Review of Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder by italiana800
In general, I'm not a fan of loose powders, (they usually make you look cakey, no matter what they may claim). I usually use Mac Blot, which is pretty much HG for me so far. Needless to say, this is almost the exact same thing as Make Up Forever's HD loose powder...which I absoloutley hate. Which is why I should've known better than to buy this one, my bad. This powder barely controls oil, doesn't leave a natural finish, makes you look cakey, & leaves a white cast (so yes, this changes the color of your make up). This also felt very itchy, just like the one from MUFE. I didn't use this long enough to know if this would've irritated my skin in any way. This is basically the same thing as baby powder & contains the same main ingredient. I feel dumb because the ingredients are usually the first thing I look at before I buy a product, & If I would've read them...I would've saved myself a hassle. Honestly, I was originially going to buy the translucent loose setting powder from Laura Mercier, but somehow one of the Sales Associates talked me into buying this one. I don't know why I listened. Take my advice, don't buy this. If you tried the MUFE version, & didn't like it...then definitely don't buy this. I'm actually going to return this today, I'm still not sure if I will end up trying the one I was originally going to buy. The only good thing I will say about this product is that the packaging was way better than MUFE'S. This one has a shield that you can easily slide open & shut, where the sifter is. Which makes this container easier to use & way less of a mess than with MUFE'S version. I also want to comment on the price. The stuff from this line is way overpriced for what it is. This was $36....rip off.
