Works Well With

Fine-milled loose powder foundation creates a natural, healthy, youthful glow. Formulated with natural elements including 15 active amino acids, it helps fight the appearance of aging. Pearlescent Powders and Mica give a soft focus effect for a smooth, luminous look.

Long-wearing, water-resistant formula offers the coverage of a foundation with the blendability and easy application of a loose powder.


Sheer to Medium coverage.
Radiant finish.

Ideal for all skin types.

Formulation Details
Oil-free. Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist-tested.

 

Using the Blending Brush, gently pick up product and tap off excess. Dust over face in a circular motion, working product into the skin for a healthy, even glow. Continue layering until desired coverage is achieved. For best results, use after your preferred Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.

PRO TIP

For the most flawless, natural look, Laura says it's key to avoid over-applying foundation to the middle of the face—where too much formula can accentuate lines and other imperfections. With liquid, crème, or powder, she recommends starting at the outer portion of the face and working inward towards the nose. Focus on one area at a time and be sure to blend well. Avoid excess application around eyes or the contours of the face. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved.

Remember, use Foundation to even out your skin tone. Use Concealer to camouflage imperfections.

I recently ran out of my powder, and both Sephora and Nordstroms told me that this was discontinued. It would have been nice if that had told me that the STORE discontinued it. They both made it sound like you no longer were making the powder. I am so glad that I did some research online to find out that you are still selling it through Macy's. Nothing comes close!

I think this product is wonderful, the foundation is very soft and finely milled and sits beautifully on the skin, very buildable, great coverage etc….however my complaint is that most of the shades have a pink undertone. The only two shades that have a yellow/olive undertone are soft porcelain (which is almost alabaster) and pure honey (the darkest shade) The descriptions of the shades all vary from "warm tones" to "cool tones" this is misleading as they are all pink. If you have pink skin than this is the foundation for you. If you have neutral, golden or olive skin in light to medium shade this isn't the foundation for you. This especially isn't for you if you need to neutralize any redness on your face. I gave 5 out of 5 on effectiveness and value as I think it is a great product but an overall rating of 2 because it is only for a limited skin tone

BEST MINERAL FOUNDATION

By Carrera4

from Thousand Oaks, CA

Comments about Mineral Powder:

I have been using L. Mercier Mineral Foundation for several years. I have several colors. My main color is Rich Vanilla. My other color is Classic Beige. I use the Classic Beige when I have a slight tan on my face. The Rich Vanilla blends well with my skin color. I am Asian and have freckles with some yellow in my skin. I have tried to use L. Mercier liquid foundation but never found the right color so I am sticking with the mineral powder. Please do not discontinue this product. Thanks.

Comments about Mineral Powder:

This foundation surpasses all other mineral makeup - good for your skin (no silicones), fast application, leaves a completely skin-like finish, and lasts all day with zero caking or creasing!! I have tried them all and always return to LM's mineral powder. My only complaints are that there are too few shades with pink undertones and lighter shades are often sold out. Tender Rose is a bit dark and it's the lightest available

    Comments about Mineral Powder:

    Oh, I want to like this so much! But beside that I got the wrong shade (Natural Beige-it's too cool toned for me and the light in the store and the lady convinced me that it is the right for me. I wanted something with warm undertone, but the Rich vanilla, she told me, seemed too dark. And the Real sand apired white on my face.)
    I have acne prone skin and it was under control for a while, but every time when I put this powder on my face I get the painful acnes on my chin, where I usually have them, but also on my cheeks and the small pimples on my forhead, where I never had any problems before.
    Is it possible that shade Natural beige may cause the problem? Because Natural beige and Soft porcelain has different ingredients comparing to all other shades.

        Comments about Mineral Powder:

        This, for now, my go-to foundation powder. I love the finish and how I can layer it on for more coverage where needed. Still looks great on the skin 8 hours later! Especially fantastic if you prep the skin with your favorite face oils and moisturizer before application. Dreamy. What I don't like... is that I have to mix this with a yellow based Bobby Brown powder because the LM 'Real Sand' has too much red in it for my pale - very yellow- skin (aka: 5Y03 sephora). It's a shame!!! Doing so ruins the finish some, but better that than be red-faced. It's a compromise for now, until I find the perfect finish/color foundation powder. Please L.M., make what I need before I find the winning shade/formula elsewhere!!!

          Whenever I try and actually take my time with doing my make up, I tend to wear cream foundation, but when it's a laid back day I always go to this powder foundation.
          It has SO much coverage for just being powder. I used to fear trying it because I have so many acne scars and I was afraid it wouldn't cover them, but this foundation does.
          I was so amazed as to how flawless my faced looked at the end. It's also long lasting.
          I have yet to find a better mineral powder than this one, but I don't think I will ever switch to another.

          About Me Brand Buyer

          Comments about Mineral Powder:

          I love the mineral powder. I had been using medium beige for over a year and then decided that the colour was a little too light, the assistant suggested warm vanilla, big mistake!the colour was wrong, but difficult to tell with lighting in a department store. So I was disappointed that I had paid over £30 for a product which is now gathering dust! Yesterday, I decided to try classic beige but only if the assistant was willing to give me a sample to try at home in natural lighting. The shop assistant was so rude, saying that it "breached all health and safety procedures" and she could not give me a sample! I would understand if the product was cheap, but at over £30 a pot does Laura mercier really believe that customers are happy to take a chance on getting the correct colour.
