Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
What it is:
An award-winning, silky powder with a touch of sheer coverage to set makeup for lasting wear.
What it does:
Translucent Loose Setting Powder locks in makeup for long-lasting wear, without adding weight or texture. This bestseller creates a modern, matte finish with a touch of sheer coverage, while it absorbs oil and reduces shine all day.
The pros know why it's their favorite: It’s a little denser than an average powder, providing super-smooth, even application and blending. This no-flashback formula means you'll look great in photos, and it creates a soft-focus effect to subtly blur the look of fine lines and imperfections. These truly translucent shades work on all skin tones—from the fairest to the deepest.
Translucent: Perfect for fair to medium and tan skin tones.
Translucent Medium Deep: Ideal for medium-deep to the deepest skin tones.
What else you need to know:
Renowned Makeup Artist Laura Mercier uses Setting Powder to set foundation and prolong its wear, so she applies it after foundation and concealer, and before applying powder-based color. An added benefit: it helps powder blush or bronzer go on more evenly.
Find Your Perfect Powder: While makeup artists and beauty junkies select a powder based on texture, finish, and skin type, others may find it easiest to choose based on skin type alone.
This professional-quality powder is noncomedogenic, non-caking, and dermatologist tested.
