The holy grail of setting powders.
I can’t even tell you how long this product had been sat in my wishlist, calling my name. But, the thing with powder products is that they last forever. So for ages, I couldn’t ignore the fact that I already had a perfectly good setting powder in my make-up bag. But about a month ago, I decided I deserved better than perfectly good, so I gave in, and bought Laura Mercier’s critically acclaimed loose setting powder.
Unless you’ve been sitting under a rock, then you will definitely know about this product. It’s won multiple awards and it’s a necessity in any MUA’s make-up bag. Plus, it isn’t just any setting powder, it sets your make-up in the most beautiful way. Your skin is left flawless, fresh, and most importantly, shine-free. Fine lines are visibly removed, and so far, my make-up has never looked cakey. In addition, I don’t get any creases under my eyes and it lasts all day.
The powder comes in three shades: translucent, honey and medium deep.
As someone with very oily skin, I wouldn’t recommend this product unless I truly believed that it leaves your skin with a satin finish and with that annoying oil nowhere to be seen. In addition, it blurs any imperfections and my make-up stays exactly how I want it, even after a very busy day at work or after sitting in the sun.
After using Laura Mercier’s loose setting powder, I can honestly say that I will never use another setting powder ever again. Now I know why it’s so popular amongst the beauty community. It totally deserves the splash of cash.
The only downfall…prepare to become addicted.
Price: £32. (I would arguably pay more, it’s that good)
