    Best powder ever

    I bought the Laura Mercier powder in medium deep because I am dark skin. I love this stuff so much. I use it before my liquid foundation as I also dust on afterwards. Keeps my make up matte and smooth all day with no shine. It does diminish lines and pores. I also use to set my under eye concealer when I wear concealer. There is also no flash back with this powder, I've taken many HD photos. I think every woman should have this in her collection.

    Awesome!

    I use this everyday to set my concealer and have always love it. I would recommend it to anyone needing a quality setting powder. The only thing I don't love about this product is the price point, I think it is too expensive for what the product does BUT it does last a long time thus making it a great beauty investment!

    Love it

    Love love love this powder. If your foundation isn't looking too hot, just slap some of this on and it will instantly make your skin look flawless! I'm definitely going to be repurchasing it since I'm almost out. Would highly recommend this if you want flawless, smooth looking foundation. Also great for touch ups.

    Quality Setting Powder

    I was very impressed by the Laura Mercier setting powder. I am no expert at makeup, but I could easily figure out how to apply the powder. I did experience some cracking around my smile lines and under my eyes, however that could probably be solved with more makeup skill and experience. The powder matched my skin tone nicely, but it takes a few tries to find the perfect amount so as to not look too splotchy or ghost-like. I did breakout once or twice from applying over acne and applying with a heavy hand. This product is very versatile, easy to apply, and the best quality setting powder I have ever purchased.

    Best on the market but...

    There's no doubt this holy grail product earned its status. It blends lovely and has great longevity. It is the best setting powder that I've used. However, it's incredibly expensive. The powder puff they recommend you use along with it is a total waste. It's a great setting powder but I don't see any perks that those that half the price do not offer. Of course, it's quality is better and there is no flashback, but most powders will do the exact same job for a fraction of the price.

    Not the best but pretty good

    This setting powder does its job but, it doesn't do everything it could to prevent or stop creasing. What I don't like is it is very hard to pick up, it just flattens down and sticks together when you try to pick it up. You get such a small amount and it's so expensive $38, I'll stick to my Coty Airspun $8. One container will last a lifetime!

    Not for people with dry skin

    I've heard lots of good reviews about this setting powder but I was quite disappointed when I tried it out. For those with oily skin it would probably work out, but for those with dry skin like me its a no-no.

    This is the best translucent powder out there . It's so fine and suitable for all skin tone. It's the best translucent powder to bake with . Gives so much coverage and keep your make up in place :)

    This has a cult following, and there's a really good reason for it. I use it multiple times when I apply makeup - first to set my foundation/concealer, then to set my blush/contour. It is pricey, but it's worth it, and a little goes a long way. To set my concealer, I use the very edge of my still damp beauty blender, tap it in, wait a minute or two, then brush it off. The fine lines underneath my eyes don't show when I do this.

    I've been using this powder for about a year and a half. I very rarely find products I buy multiple times because I always want to try something new. I don't NEED to try any other setting powders with this stuff. It makes my face look like porcelain after I use it and I very rarely get that nasty cakey look, and when I do it's user error. May favorite way to put it on is with my damp beauty blender because it gives me more control. I've used both a powder brush and the little applicator that comes with the small size as well and both methods work well. When I started using it I had seriously oily skin issues and this helped so much! After some medications changed my skin type and I now have skin on the drier side, it still works. I would recommend this to anyone.
