Additional Information

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. The translucent shade works on virtually all skin tones.

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.

Formulation Details

Oil-free. Non-comedogenic. Non-caking. Dermatologically tested.

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.

PRO TIP

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.

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!

Bring back Ivory color!

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

Not repurchasing

By 

from Toronto, ON

Comments about Laura Mercier 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!

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder:

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.

      Comments about Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder:

      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

      Best loose powder ever!

      Comments about Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder:

      I've been using this for over a decade and it's amazing! It's not chalky or heavy, it's silky and satiny. I wear it over the original Tinted Moisturizer and it leaves my skin looking healthy and flawless. It works well over any foundation I use but my favorite is to use it over the tinted moisturizer. A little pricey but there's a lot in the package compared to most other companies. I can't recommend this enough!

      It did give a slight tint of color over my foundation. I actually prefer the Invisible loose powder over this.

      • Q:

        Is there an alternative to this that is paraben free? I was so surprised to see this is LOADED with parabens that will sit an soak into your face every day. Why? There are so many preservative alternatives to parabens now. Parabens are very cheap preservatives... I hope that's not the reason since this is an expensive product.
        Asked on 7/31/2016 by trying to find paraben free

        1 answer

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Trying, unfortunately, we do not have a Paraben free version of the Translucent Loose Setting Powder. Parabens provide a critical role in frontline defense for preventing disease and infection in humans by preventing fungal and bacterial contamination and are recognized as safe by the World Health Organization. In the United States, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) expert panel has reviewed parabens and concluded that they are safe for use in cosmetic products. An alternative to Parabens is something Our Product Development Team is working on, so possibly in the near future we will be able to make a claim on selected products stating they are paraben free. Thank you for your feedback.

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Curious, we do not make a claim that any of our products are vegan-friendly. We are not a vegan-friendly company because we do source a number of our ingredients from animal by-products. Some of our by-products include beeswax, lanolin, carmine, animal hairs and cultured pearls.
