Works Well With

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. 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 love this product but this is the third time I have purchased it and the screw top part of the container has cracked and eventually fallen away making using the product too messy to use. I'm only halfway through the powder and I have to throw it out.

LOVE the powder, HATE the packaging

By 

from Brimingham, MI

Comments about Translucent Loose Setting Powder:

I am so happy to hear that it is not just me with every single powder I have bought from Laura Mercier doing this. I have been in love with this powder for years but I have finally reached by breaking point with the packaging with the crack with my bronzer reunited my rehearsal dinner dress, my crack crumbled and made for a sad day.

Great product, but packaging doesn't stand up.

I use as a setting powder. Lovely. Gripe is solely that the plastic cracks and breaks about midway through life.

Great Powder, Cheap Container

By 

from California

Comments about Translucent Loose Setting Powder:

This light powder is perfect for cutting shine where you need it. The container isn't durable, and the rim chips very easily, even when the lid isn't screwed on. I've used similarly packaged powders from other brands, and that was never an issue. Given that the powder costs nearly $50, the container shouldn't fall apart like that.

      Comments about Translucent Loose Setting Powder:

      Initially when I heard the hype of the original shades, I wasn't really buying it so I didn't hop on the "favorite train" but when the medium deep came out ... I just knew that I had to try it out. When I tell you this product is GREAT! I love it and if it's the same formula as the other, I can see why it's so well liked.

        Love the powder, But.....

        By 

        from Arizona

        Comments about Translucent Loose Setting Powder:

        Container cracks around the edge and powder falls out. Has happened with every one I have purchased. Have been very careful to not screw lid too tight but still happens. Cheap plastic.

        Does not travel well

        By 

        from Alabama

        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.
