What is Translucent Loose Setting Powder
With multiple major awards and counting, Laura Mercier's "best in beauty", cult-favorite bestseller is your go-to setting powder. Loose powder feels luxuriously dense in the jar, feels incredibly soft and silky-light on your skin. Pros love the super smooth application: goes on evenly, blends effortlessly, provides great wear. Sets makeup without adding weight or texture.
Modern Matte Finish
Creates a modern matte finish with a touch of sheer coverage. Now in two shades, to offer a translucent finish for every skintone, from the fairest to the deepest. The Original Translucent shade works best for fair to medium and tan skin tones while the new shade Translucent Medium Deep was designed to work best on medium deep to the very deepest skin tones, so every skin can enjoy a perfectly flawless, translucent finish.
Soft-Focus Effect for a More Flawless Look
Like all Laura Mercier Setting Powders, it has a soft-focus effect that subtly blurs the look of fine lines and imperfections. Doesn't settle into fine lines or pores and never looks cakey.
Oil-free. Non-comedogenic. Non-caking. Dermatologically tested.
Research Results: 100% Love It
We shared Translucent Loose Setting Powder with women, and after 2 weeks, they raved:
- 100% said it's the key to long-lasting makeup, ensuring makeup lasts throughout the day.
- 100% said it is lightweight.
- 100% said it does not look cakey on skin.
- 100% said it controls and reduces shine.
- 97% said it absorbs excess oil.
Laura recommends applying with the VELOUR PUFF (sold separately). Only the 0.33 oz size of Translucent Loose Setting Powder comes with the Velour Puff.
Preparing the puff is key: press the Velour Puff into the loose powder, then work the powder into the puff by folding and rubbing the halves together, or by tapping the powdered side vigorously on back of hand.
Gently press puff onto skin, using a rolling motion to "work" the powder in. (Around eyes, use Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes.)
As with all Setting Powders, apply after any creamy formulas, including cream blush.
When your entire makeup application is complete, including color, give your skin a velvety, finished look by using the Powder Brush to apply Translucent Loose Setting Powder to sides of cheeks, center of forehead, nose, and tip of chin.

Bring back Ivory color!
The Ivory color suits me very well, you shouldn't discontinue. Translucent didn't work with me.

Does not travel well
Comments about Translucent Loose Setting Powder:
I like the powder but am very disappointed that no powder puff was included. While I usually apply with a powder brush the puff would help the package travel well. Other loose powders that I purchased in the past included a small puff which I would leave in the container. I tried to send a comment via the website's contact us email form but it was returned so that is very disappointing too.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am heavy repeater of LM setting powders. Thank you for making this in smaller size. I can take with me in my cosmetic pouch to anywhere!

Amazing powder - in love!
from Cambridge, UK
I use this powder to set my foundation, with a small powder brush I roll it under my eyes and pat it onto my oil prone areas (beside my nose and chin). Even when i exercise after work it still keeps my oily areas from caking or any foundation slip. I wish i'd discovered this sooner. It bakes for a perfect glam look too.

Comments about Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder:
I was hesitant to buy this product because I have dry skin and I heard the powder would make my wrinkles more visible. But I experienced the exact opposite! within an hour my face looked shiny and greasy and no matter how much extra powder I added it didn't take down the shine.I was very disappointed with this, but if you just focus the product on your under eye area and set your face with something else then it works great!

LM Does it Again!
from New York, NY
I love LM products. No matter how many new brands I try to explore, I ALWAYS come back to Laura Mercier because the palette matches perfectly and feels great on my skin. I don't like to wear a lot of makeup at all but I've been noticing my face looks very oily in pictures and I find my makeup wearing off by the mid-afternoon. My friends kept referencing "banana powder" and to me it seems like an unnecessary added layer of makeup. I googled "Laura Mercier banana powder" because LM is my go-to, and this came up with amazing reviews across several sites. I headed straight to the store to purchase, watched a video on how to apply and I can honestly say my makeup looks amazing! My skin is not oily, nor dry and everything is staying in place. Even my boyfriend said, "Your makeup looks nice today" and he has never referenced the fact that I even wear makeup. Ever.

Best setting powder ever!
from Seattle, Wa
I have very oily skin and this setting powder I will continue to buy! It makes any of my liquid foundations look "matte" which is what I want, it does instantly and controls oil and makes my makeup last perfect ALL DAY! literally through ten hour work shifts. LOVE this powder and won't buy any other now! Wish it came in a bigger container than one ounce!

I lightly dust this product all over my face after my liquid foundation and concealer routine, then I use the sponge pad to apply a slightly heavier amount to my under-eyes to really set in my concealer. The results are lovely, I do not come out looking powdery, my foundation lasts all day
