Great powder - 20-05-2018 by

This powder is amazing. It completely removes the shiny from my face, keeps my makeup in place and feels very soft and velvety. Must have!

Amazing - 19-05-2018 by

Quickest delievery turn around time I’m so happy !!! Just wanted to confirm is the lid on the Laura mercier translucent powder different ? Because this one seems to be darker and not have glitter on it like the previous one I had !!!

One of the best powders ever - 17-05-2018 by

I've used this powder for many years but haven't purchased it for a while. I now remember why I loved it so much. It's a cult classic for a reason: matte, super light and definitely helps with unwanted shine. Perfect for oily combination skin. Feels like I'm finally home again lol

The Ultimate Setting Powder - 17-05-2018 by

This is the best setting powder I have ever used on myself and others. No colour, no flashback, great for baking, looks flawless. Great for ANY skin type!

Perfection - 14-05-2018 by

Best. Powder. Ever.
I've tried many powders and this is the best. Your makeup will always look good with an excellent power - a must!

The impossible to find product! - 14-05-2018 by

At the time of purchasing this item, I could not get my hands on a single item at any Sephora in store. Nor on their website.
So! I found it available at Adore online - Hurrah, they are an official stockist! And the blogs were all right that marketed this product - It does a great job in setting your foundation, and a little does go a long way! I like to use all over the face, then add some bronzer over the top to make a darker look.Kind of a like a beauty dust for your face!

My "Go To" - 14-05-2018 by

This is an absolute must have in any makeup kit! I love it for baking and setting any look. I find it settles into skin perfectly and is well worth the price..

Not as translucent as you think... - 08-05-2018 by

Love the powder, sets well. But even though it's advertised as translucent, it does have a white tint to it. I put a very light layer of bronzer over it. I still continue to use and buy it so I like it, just beware though!

Exactly what I needed! - 08-05-2018 by

Recently purchased a the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. Have been super impressed with the product! It has been just what I needed to finish off my everyday make up look!

The Queen of setting powders - 08-05-2018 by

I cannot fault this setting powder at all. It is by far the best setting powder I have used and would recommend it to all skin types. It is so light and velvet and blends well if using to define contour. Will never use anything else for setting powder again.

Great for oily skin! - 08-05-2018 by

This powder has actually saved my life. I have really oily skin, and this powder is soo good! I use a beauty blender to push the powder in rather than using a brush, and my skin is noticeably less oily, and my makeup stays put for longer. Only downside is if I have a bit of fake tan on, the lightness of the powder kind of washes me out. But nothing a little bronzer can't fix.

Really does blur pores and perfect for every skin type ! - 08-05-2018 by

I purchased this translucent powder hoping it would live up to the reviews I have read.... and it sure did !
As a professional makeup artist, my products HAVE to work for every skin type, age, ethnicity, perform well on camera (HD) and last hours (bridal parties up to 16hrs!). This products blurs fine lines and pores and ensures my clients stay oil free and set in place all day. Love it !

Good but overhyped. - 08-05-2018 by

This powder is really nice and definitely gives the skin a smooth finish. I definitely recommend it if you have the money to spend, but I personally don't see a substantial difference between this and my RCMA no colour powder, which is way cheaper.

must have for every makeup lover - 08-05-2018 by

if you don't have this, you need to buy it! it does not go cakey, it smooths out the under eye concealer and sets it really well. Does not flake off or crease!!

My go to powder - 08-05-2018 by

I use this powder every time I apply my makeup, its last well throughout the whole day and doesn't settle into any fine lines. This is the perfect powder when freelancing to set the whole face as its suitable for all skin types.

Amazing - 07-05-2018 by

This is the first powder I have tried after doing extensive research (I am combination oily) I can say it is everything I hoped for and more. I use it on my T-zone only as I like a bit of the "dewy" look everywhere else. Lasts all day, will always be a staple in my makeup routine now.

Best for lighter skin tones - 30-04-2018 by

This powder is soft and easy to blend, and you get a lot of product, but it made my medium-dark skin look ashy. It also made my skin look quite dry. I tried to make it work for myself but it looked very unnatural, so I will not be using this product anymore. I find that ben nye banana powder is much more natural on my skin tone. However, the laura mercier powder would probably be fine for lighter skin tones.

great product - 29-04-2018 by

looks great on the skin together with any of my concealers.

Good staying power - 19-04-2018 by

This powder has really good staying powder and is soft and easy to blend. However, I find that if I use too much of it, it can make my medium-dark skin look a bit ashy. So I try to use just as much as I need.

Amazing product!!! - 12-04-2018 by

This powder is now my go to!! Perfect product for setting makeup as still leaves your face looking natural and flawless, without that look of layered or caked makeup. I would suggest using small amounts of this product at a time, I never need a lot. You get heaps in a container too so it will last awhile! Couldn’t recommend more!!!

My holy grail powder - the hype is real - 12-04-2018 by

I truly love this product it does everything I think a good powder should do. It doesn't settle in fine lines instead provides quite a blurring effect. It doesn't provide you with the terrible gift of flashback, even on my darker skin tone (I'm NC45 for reference). When setting your cream/liquid products it provides a beautiful velvet finish to the skin, it leaves some luminosity to the skin unlike other powders I've found seem to take all the life from my skin leaving me too matte (for reference I have normal/combination skin and use NARS Sheer Glow).
It's definitely worth the price tag, this is probably my third time buying it and I use it almost every day and the powder has last me around a year - so it's a worthwhile investment and remember with this product a little lasts a long way!

Holy Grail - 12-04-2018 by

i have tried several setting powders over the years, and I always come back to this one.
It leaves your skin soft and smooth with no flashback.
And a little goes a long way, I’ve had mine for a year now and I’ve only used half!

My Ride or Die Powder - 12-04-2018 by

I have tried and owned many translucent powders over the years, and I always gravitate towards the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder every single time - without fail.
This finely milled powder sets and locks-in all of my makeup, both under the eyes and all over the face, without ever altering the colour or formulation of my foundation or concealer.
This powder plays a crucial step in my makeup routine; without it, my makeup just doesn't look/perform the same.
I have recently purchased my third tub of this powder, which is definitely an indicator as to just how much I truly love and rely on this product.

Lovely setting powder - 11-04-2018 by

One of the best setting powders out there. It's very finely milled and sits beautifully over most foundations - won't completely dim the glow of a luminous foundation and won't be cakey over a matte. It is also truly translucent and doesn't leave any white cast.

The packaging can be a little messy, but that's usually the way with loose powders. Worth the price as it will last for months to years.

Beautiful! - 05-04-2018 by

I'm not a huge fan of loose powders, but this powder is amazing. It sets my makeup beautifully, and it doesn't give me cake face like a lot of drug store options do.

I usually use this with a damp beauty blender, or if I'm just wanting to set my under eyes for an everyday look I just use a small amount on a setting brush. It helps to minimise creasing, and makes my pores look almost invisible. (I'm a combo/normal girl with some large pores) It extends my makeup wear time dramatically.

I highly recommend giving this power a go. It's worth the price.

Fantastic Setting Powder - 29-03-2018 by

This product is a must for every pro makeup artist or person who loves makeup. The powder is finely milled so won't appear heavy or cakey, sits beautifully on top of the skin, Holds your makeup in place for hours. Great for a mature aged skin as it won't sit in wrinkled or creased areas or clog your pores. Even great for the undereye area. Love it.

Such a beautiful powder - 29-03-2018 by

This is such an incredible powder. It makes the skin look super smooth and perfected, keeps makeup in place, helps absorb oil and is overall amazing. I use this to set my makeup, and also under foundation to help absorb oil and keep me matte throughout the day. Love this powder

Worth the hype - 27-03-2018 by

This is probably one of the best loose setting powders out there. It sets my makeup beautifully and feels light and silky on my skin. The only drawback would be it's high price point but since this product lasted me for ages, I'd say it's worth it.

Great product - 27-03-2018 by

This is a fantastic setting powder. I love using it as an under eye setting powder and it works for all skin types. I have very dry skin and I find it doesn’t settle into my fine lines like many other powders. It is also great for baking and cleaning up a contour. I also use this powder as an all over setting powder on my oily clients. Such a great multi-purpose powder. Definitely worth the money.

Best powder ever - 19-03-2018 by

this powder deserves the hype! Perfection

The only powder I use now. - 06-03-2018 by

I have traditionally “ethnic” olive skin prone to greasiness, and am always battling the shine. I saw this one being used by Kim K’s MUA and decided to try it a while ago and now I’m well into my second container. For every day I wear I apply a fine veil with a powder brush, but for occasion makeup I press it in with a puff and it gives a beautiful airbrush effect. Works well with other products. My only issue is that when the product is getting low it gets harder to shake it out through the holes in the top of the container, and after trying unsuccessfully to pry it off I had to cut through the top with a box cutter because nothing was going to stop me getting to that last bit of powder lol!

Miraculous powder! - 06-03-2018 by

I use this to set my entire face and under eyes, my makeup lasts all day and does not crease either. I have used this powder religiously daily for years and years, one tub usually lasts me around a year. The most amazing thing about this powder is that it makes skin look so flawless and airbrushed. I like my makeup to look matte and this does help me to achieve that and along with that it smoothes out texture. It is magical. It also is a great base for my powder bronzer and blush to apply smoothly and not patchy if I were to directly apply it onto my foundation.

Love love love - 25-02-2018 by

Absolutely love this product

Easy to apply
Skin feels amazing

Does as its suppose to

Great for everyday use! - 19-02-2018 by

Skin: Fair, Oily, Blemish Prone

+This guy is huge! The packaging is plastic but very sturdy and the weight adds a very luxurious feel to it. It has a seive at the top with several holes - be careful when travelling as when the container is moved around a lot it can cause quite a build up of product in the top, so always open the lid carefully.

+The powder is very fine and almost has a velvety feel on the skin, I found that if I put too much on my under eyes it would create a bit of a heavy feeling, so a little goes a long way.

+The major downfall of this product for me was that it was not helping with the longevity of my makeup or hepling to decrease oil production, which I was surprised about considering there are so many reviews saying so.

+ For the $62 price tag this isn't something I would repurchase. It does have a lovely feel to it so I might reccomend it to someone with combination skin/not prone to having crazy oily skin, but for me it just didn't do the trick.

Lives up to the hype. - 16-02-2018 by

With all the rave reviews of this product I decided to give it a go, and I wasn't disappointed. It is a lovely fine powder, super soft to apply and feels light on the skin. It is definitely my go to setting powder.

Perfect for my skin - 17-01-2018 by

This is my favourite powder! It is the only product I've used that hasn't left me looking cakey or patchy after foundation and concealer. Lasts me a long time and is defiantly worth the money.

Holy grail loose powder! - 17-01-2018 by

I am 45 and this powder is a must! It is super finely-milled and blurs large pores and sets make-up beautifully. Will definitely be sticking with this!

Perfected Powder! - 09-01-2018 by

I don't really like wearing powder as I prefer a dewy look over a matte look but when the weather gets too hot I need a good powder. This is perfect, doesn't affect the colour of my foundation and also doesn't leave me looking chalky or too powdery! My make up also stays on better than with any other powder I have tried

Top Notch Translucent Powder! - 28-12-2017 by

I've never been a fan of powders, because I feel like once I set my base it shows my pores, uneven texture, dry patches etc. I've just never tried a powder that doesn't emphasise the bad bits or disturb my foundation and concealer. I decided to give this one a crack due to all the hype, and the hype exists for a reason!

It just sets everything and doesn't disturb all the work you've already done. It doesn't emphasise pores, fine lines or any texture.

It just sets your face in place so you can go about your day!

super soft and natural finish - 27-12-2017 by

I don't use this powder every day, but I love it for setting my face when I need my makeup to last. Some days I just use it for the undereye and t-zone, and it performs so well. It's so soft on the face and the finish is very natural. Love it and will repurchase again and again!

Fabulous setting powder for a non caked face - 04-12-2017 by

I really love this powder, it doesn’t settle into my fine lines and gives me a lasting smooth look all day long.

Blurring effect! - 30-11-2017 by

I love this powder to set my foundation, it doesn't alter the colour of my foundation at all. It has the most amazing blurring effect so you look flawless in photo's and no flashback! No snapchat filters needed with this beauty. Goes on amazingly with the velour puff as well. Don't wait like I did, just buy it! Also, it's a great size for the price too.

Meets up to the cult status - 13-11-2017 by

Absolutely love this product to bake under my eye area and set my entire face!
It doesn't give flash back or alter your foundation colour!
This product is a bit pricey and hard to come by but thankfully with after pay and adore beauty, it arrived on my door step the day after I had ordered it and I can pay it off over time!

Converted - 02-11-2017 by

I’ve been a big lover of RCMA No Colour Powder for a long time now, so even through all the hype around the Laura Mercier Translucent powder, I’ve never swayed.
But there has been a few instances that I’ve found I haven’t been 100% happy with the RCMA, so I thought, fork it, I’ll try the LM Translucent and Omg I’m so mad I waited this long.
It’s so fine and SOOOOO soft, I couldn’t stop touching my skin after applying. It sets the foundation so amazingly and doesn’t inhibit the colour whatsoever. Great matte finish or with a spritz of Fix + looks like amazingly hydrated skin. So so so happy with this purchase

Coverage isn't it's key selling point - 31-10-2017 by

If you're looking for something to help mattify and lock your makeup in place, this powder works a dream. It feels like cashmere on your face. However, if you have acne scars and you want something that can do both things as well as provide some coverage, you might need a pressed powder. Coverage isn't it's key selling point. Four stars for doing it's job, just not for me.

In LOVE - 16-10-2017 by

Heard and read so may good things about this translucent powder and was so excited to try it when I received it as a sample.

This is the best powder I have tried! I have combination skin, oily t zone and dry in other areas, and this keeps my skin matte but doesn't make my dry skin flakey.

This is my staple go to!

Believe the hype - 13-10-2017 by

I'm one of nature's skeptics, I'm not usually prone to buying something just because everyone is talking about it.

My skin is normal/somewhat combination - I usually go hard on moisturisers because I'm prone to flakey skin, which means that often my t-zone is oily by end of day. I also hate the way powders look, so I tend to not powder if I can help it. Lately I've been using a powder foundation in my t-zone, and setting it with a mist. The look is exactly what I want, but I'm also very lazy.

I like this powder a lot! It's actually a very natural satin finish, and doesn't emphasise dryness. It means I can use a really hydrating BB cream and just set the t-zone, and I'm not oily all day. It doesn't stay the same all day, but it does break down to something natural looking. In fact it probably looks nicer by end of day, if anything. I was worried it wouldn't be translucent on my skin but it is.

Overall - really can't fault this product!

Perfection. - 04-10-2017 by

This powder is like silk on my face. It seems to get rid of imperfections that other loose and pressed powders don't. One of the best products in makeup I have used.

The ultimate translucent powder - 01-08-2017 by

I was obsessed with my face of australia powder UNTIL i tried the Laura mercier powder!! No flash back and always leaves my face flawless. I will not be going to any other translucent powder until I find something better which probably won't be for a long time

Porcelain skin - 30-07-2017 by

It has a very nice smell and you don't need much to set your foundation, it appears to smooth your skin and pores and doesn't settle into lines but after a few hours it tends to get a little oily on the T-zone used in conjunction with Kat Von D lock it foundation

LOVE - 16-07-2017 by

So glad I decided to take the plunge and invest in this powder before wasting my money on other average powders. New holy grail, sets concealer so well, I find using a damp Beauty Blender works best, feels like the powder melts seamlessly onto my skin and into the cream base, haven't seen a crease under my eyes or in my laugh lines since. Product brushes away very easily and doesn't disturb the base. Even water or steam doesn't budge the finished look with up to 18 hours wear- however my skin is on the drier side. No dreaded flashback in photos... And a handy tip- using a hydrating or setting spray will make this powder look absolutely flawless, no familiar powdery cakey finish (my favourite is the Marc Jacobs ReCover coconut mist). Would highly recommend this powder to anyone!!

Holy grail, used everyday - 10-07-2017 by

I use this to set my foundation all over, Its definitely a high quality product. It helps my makeup stay very well the whole day!

Fantastic for my oily skin! - 05-06-2017 by

I love this setting powder as it helps with oil control. It's easy to bake with and sets my makeup perfectly. My makeup stays matte longer. I'd highly recommend it.

Favourite! - 02-06-2017 by

This is a really great powder - it never looks chalky, doesn't cause the dreaded flash-back in photos. You need very little product so it lasts forever & it works well with any foundation.

Amazing - 17-05-2017 by

Best setting powder I have used so far. No flash back (YAY!), and doesn't crease when setting/baking under my eyes. A little goes a long way so totally worth the price too.

Holy grail of the holy grails - 12-02-2017 by

If u want to look perfect flawless and beautiful buy this!

It's okay... - 08-02-2017 by

I love high end makeup so the price is not the issue, but I used this everyday to bake my undereye and set my face and it did a nice job...but the same job as cheaper setting powders. I couldn't tell the difference between this powder and a cheapo one I got from Kmart on sale so for this reason I can't justify the $50 price difference when it did the very same job!

I use it everyday - 06-02-2017 by

At first I was like "errr I dunno if this even does anything more then any other powder" But I was wrong... which is good because it would have been an expensive mistake.
If applied with a damp sponge it just disappears, in a good way.
I absolutely think it works to help keep my oily nose at bay. Its not a miracle worker but anyone with an oily nose knows theres no such thing. This is an important puzzle piece of my routine now.
If you know you need to use a setting powder but hate the thought of looking powdery give this a go. I use MAC fix + after and a setting spray and honestly you can't tell I have even powdered It looks totally natural in that make up way.

OMG! - 31-01-2017 by

This powder is a god send! I have oily skin and this powder works a treat. My makeup stays all day even though i do get a slight bit of oil coming through its nothing like i had before where my makeup with just disappear or i will have to reapply powder constantly. I use it for baking under my eyes and points where i get really oily and it helps so much. Yes its expensive but so worth it!!

Amazing first impression - 24-09-2016 by

I purchased this product to bake my undereye area for my sister's wedding. I used it in conjunction with the Too Faced Born This Way undereye conealer which worked perfectly. There was no flashback, it prevented creasing (which I always have problems with) and it lasted the whole day for more than 14 hours. I can see what the hype is about!

    • A: Hi Sharnee,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      Laura Mercier's Loose Setting Powders unique light reflecting ingredient creates a beautifully airbrushed "soft-focus" appearance to conceal fine lines & imperfections.

      You shouldn't find this product gives you flashback as it is a very lightweight sheer setting powder that leaves skin with a flawless finish. The soft-focus effect subtly blurs the look of fine lines and imperfections, and it doesn't settle into lines or pores. The result is natural-looking and never powdery or cakey.
