Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder | Worth It?



There are some makeup products you hear about constantly. When you think about popular setting powders I am pretty sure the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder would be very high on your list. So after I ran out of my Charlotte Tilbury one, I decided to splurge on this very hyped powder. So today I thought I would share with you my thoughts on it. Is it really worth the hype?

Firstly I have to say that the packaging looks very chic. I love the minimal design and the frosted look of the jar. It contains 29 grams, which really is a lot of product. Most of the setting powders I have used before, come with around 10 grams. So maybe that makes the price a bit more justified.



In general, I am a fan of translucent powders as I love that I don't have to worry about finding the right shade for me. However, keep in mind that most translucent powders aren't as translucent as they claim to be. They often can add a slight white layer on your face, so maybe that is something to keep in mind when you have a deeper complexion. However, at least on me I find this powder very translucent and have not noticed any white-ish cast on my skin. If you prefer a non-translucent powder, Laura Mercier also does this powder in different shades. 

The brand claims that the powder gives you a soft-focus effect to your skin and I really can see what they mean. My skin looks perfected without looking fake or cakey. The powder itself feels very soft, almost fluffy. It doesn't feel as dry as most powders tend to do. It almost feels hydrating. Also, my foundation and concealer seem to last a bit longer than usual. So for me, it really is worth the hype especially considering how much product you actually get for your money and how different it feels compared to other powders. 



Have you tried the Laura Mercier powder yet?

  1. So nice that this feels hydrating, some powders can be so drying! Looks like a nice powder to try.

  15. Totally worth the hype! It's one of my favourite makeup products ever - Laura Mercier powders are all very nice actually, I also love the one specifically designed to set eye makeup and the mineral foundations.
    I'd love to try the Glow version now. Xx
