This is a nice setting powder, perfect for those with oily skin or setting the undereye area. Unfortunately I have very dry skin so in the winter, this powder can emphasize my dry patches and can look a bit cakey under the eyes. I personally find this product a bit pricy for the quality. I recently purchased the Marcelle loose setting powder and I think it is just as good for about half the price. If you love to bake your face, this is a good product but I personally won't be repurchasing because it isn't worth the money for me.
This is a holy grail powder to so many people (me included). Not only is this powder completely translucent, it is such a finely milled powder. This powder is so soft and so nice to blend. Baking your face has being a really popular way to set your concealer and this does the job of baking to well. It sets my face and keeps me oil free all day. I don't have the oiliest of skin so I don't know how it would work on that but it does the job for me. I would say I have normal to dry skin so I have to be careful I don't apply too much or it can look cakey. But, overall an amazing powder.
I use this to set my concealer under my eyes as well as to control shine on my forehead. It adds a blurred effect that looks really nice in photos. My only tip is to brush off any excess under your eyes, as it tends to set into fine lines if you put on too much.
The hype is so real for this product. At first I thought people were hyping this product up way too hard and I was afraid I would be disappointed but I wasn't. This powder is finely milled and I love using it for baking my under eyes and setting my whole face.
I received the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder as part of a Sephora Favourites Collection. This powder is finely milled. It feels like a cloud, leaving my skin super soft. It helps my foundation stay all day without leaving a powdery cast on my combination skin. I'm so glad I got to try it, it's now one of my favourite setting powders. Even though it's pricey. I will repurchase.
This my favorite setting powder. I don't have to worry about flashback when it comes to flash photography and works great in the t-zone areas of my face where normally, I see my makeup breakdown faster. This setting powder significantly increases the lasting power of my makeup without causing my skin to get incredibly dry.
This setting powder works really well for oily skin. It doesn't add color on top of your foundation and it keeps your makeup in place. Also works great for sharpening your contour.
Honestly you make think I'm crazy for saying the price is good, but I buy the travel size and it lasts me 2 months with everyday use at 28$, and to me that isn't bad for the job it does. First off let me say I have horrible creases under my eyes, and when I use this powder they're barely noticeable, not to mention my makeup doesn't budge! A lot of people use this powder for baking their makeup, also fabulous for that. Secondly most powders I've used for off a white cast in photos , which I can't stand, and this is he only one I've found that hasn't! Awesome. Overall I recommend definitely trying this powder out.
OKAY THIS STUFF IS GREAT! I have the oilest of oily skin on my nose and I use mattifying primers (Benefit the POREfessional, BECCA EverMatte etc), matte pressed powders (Rimmel Stay Matte, Clinique Stay Matte etc), matte setting sprays (one by NYX that I forget the name of, Urban Decay De-Slick etc) and have tried various setting powders from drugstores and also the Sephora collection one and NOTHING keeps me truly matte! I always have to use blotting papers, and also touch up my powder throughout the day because my shine always manages to show up within an hour or so. I debated between this and MUFE's version, but ultimately went with this one based on the reviews. I believe the hype now. The hype is 100% real! This is an AWESOME powder! It keeps me matte, smooth and shine free all day! It's long lasting, it doesn't cling to my dry patches and it doesn't smell like vinegar like a lot of other setting powders do. This is a bit on the pricey side ($47CAD), especially if you're unsure if it will work well, but honestly this stuff is amazing and you get a lot in one container too. If you're unsure of buying this, DO IT. Do it now! You'll love it! But if my review, and others have not convinced you yet, and you're still unsure then purchase the travel size. It's less expensive and lets you try it out first without having to commit to a huge jar of it! :) I'd rate this a 9.5/10.
I use this as my overall setting powder after foundation and I love it. I have oily skin and this keeps me matte. It's colourless and you'll never get any sort of white cast.
