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

The compact includes a double-sided applicator.

For sheer coverage or mistake-proof touch-ups, use the white flocked side of the applicator. For medium, buildable coverage, use the sponge side. Either way, apply with smooth, even strokes on areas where coverage is needed.

Laura suggests using Mineral Powder in the morning, then touching up with Mineral Pressed Powder as needed during the day or for travel.

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 repurchased this powder in Natural Beige. I still had a little left in my old compact and realized the color was more yellow and the powder, well very "powdery" and messy. I took it back thinking it was possibly mislabeled but they were all this way. I have noticed several of Laura's products which i have used for years and are staples in my beauty routine that have changed or are being discontinued. Not sure my opinion will mean anything. Maybe if there are enough disappointed customers, they will reconsider and bring back the original pressed mineral powder. I wish I would have known so I could have bought a few to have on hand.

This has been a must-have since I discovered it a few years ago. Applies smoothly & evenly and wears all day - even in heat & humidity. This week, I restocked and my powder arrived broken. Upon attempting to replace it, I found it has been discontinued. Had I known when I ordered LAST WEEK, I would have ordered more than one. Now, I can't even get a replacement for the one I did order. My favorite foundation was also discontinued in the past year. So basically, my whole beauty routine is destroyed without even the courtesy of a warning from this company. It is overpriced, IMO, but I was willing to pay the price for the product quality. Now, I am seriously reconsidering whether Laura Mercier deserves my business in the future.

      Comments about Mineral Pressed Powder:

      I started using this a few years ago after a recommendation from the Laura counter staff. The very first one I purchased when I used it at home seemed very light, I returned and was given the next shade down Rich Vanilla which was perfect and I couldn't believe just how good it was, my skin looked flawless but it's so lightweight, I just loved it and repurchased it many times. This year I have strayed to other foundations, using what are described as "the best of the best", they seemed good until I found my LM mineral again and decided to use it just after my holidays. All I can say is the rest are in the bin and I've repurchased it. All I get is compliments about my skin and my makeup. It is so light and applies so quickly and evenly I love it. It has great staying power even though it's light, doesn't budge all day. Please, please, please Laura NEVER discontinue this, it's the most amazing product ever.

      Comments about Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder:

      This is by far my favorite powder foundation. I have rosacea and my skin is dry, this evens out the pinkness in my cheeks nicely and doesn't make my look flaky. I wear SPF 50 everyday and this takes down the shine nicely, making me looked more polished. Love it!

      Comments about Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder:

      I have been suffering from dark pigmentation on my skin for about 5-6 months now and am in the process of waiting for these dark blemishes to fade. I use a lemon juice and sugar scrub once a week so that they will brighten and I needed a piece of make up that provided and SPF (because of the lemon juice, otherwise if I did not cover the dark blemishes they could get darker) and a coverage that allowed me to build throughout the day to something quite full during the evening so that these marks would not show after using concealer. I DEFINITELY have found what I'm looking for and will never go back! I feel so confident about my skin whenever I'm wearing this product, it's amazing! I never have to top up at all during an eight hour shift during the day and all I have to do is brush a tad more on for the evening for something a bit fuller and more glam. After using a primer and a concealer then this product my skin is glowing, and I can still continue to treat my dark marks with lemon as this has an SPF of 15 in! I was a little scared of the price at first, but, I am now whole heartedly convinced this is the best mineral foundation on the market!!!

      The Best Powder

      Comments about Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder:

      I'm glad I started to try this powder. It is so smooth and silky. It makes my face look so natural, but enough coverage that I need. I had been trying different brands in the past, the most expensive or the cheap one. This is the best powder that makes my face feel so soft, and smooth. I love the package which is perfect size to put in my small cosmetic case. The powder is excellent product not easy to brake like other brands. I will recommend this product to my friends, and continue to use this powder for good.

      Best foundation I have ever used

      By 

      from Australia

      Site Member

      Comments about Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder:

      I adore this foundation! For years I've been searching for the right color for my skin - I'm extremely pale and so I've had a lot of trouble and eventually just gave up foundation entirely because I couldn't find a decent one in my colour. My skin is also dry and very sensitive, and any foundations that did look okay would irritate my skin or break it out.
      Thank goodness I found Laura Mercier! A friend told me about this foundation and when I saw the great colours I decided to give it a shot, and I'm very very glad I did!

      I bought Soft Porcelain, the lightest shade, and it's PERFECT. Not pink and not orange - just proper porcelain. Just to add to it's amazingness it's also super silky on your skin and feels very light. It has good coverage, and is also very buildable. A small sponge is provided, which is great for on-the-go, but I prefer to use a brush which works really well with this foundation too.

      I should point out that if you have dry skin like me, make sure you use a good moisturiser beforehand, as this foundation can make your skin feel a bit dry and tight if you don't.

      Overall I'm very impressed and also very relieved to have finally found the perfect foundation! Thankyou so much for making this, Laura Mercier!

      I've only been using the pressed mineral powder for one...

      Comments about Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder:

      I've only been using the pressed mineral powder for one week now and I am incredibly happy with it. I have rosacea and this product really provides great coverage. It evens my skin out and creates as close to a "flawless complexion" that I will ever see on my face!! I'm thrilled that I can find it at Sephora. I am wondering if anyone out there who has the same skin condition as me #rosacea: redness, bumps# that finds the loose powder to be "better" than the pressed? Just wondering...

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Jagoda, Based on your description of your skin tone and skins undertone we recommend Mineral Pressed Powder Rich Vanilla. Rich Vanilla will work with your light skin and warm undertones. We didn't recommend Real Sand because Real Sand is best suited for individuals who are Light with Neutral Undertones.

        Hi,

        I see that this product used to contain Zinc Oxide, thus providing sun protection, but I don't see it in the ingredient list anymore. Was this product reformulated and if so, why? I have been looking for a good powder with either Zinc Oxide or Titanium Oxide forever.

          A:

          K, The Mineral Pressed Powders have not been reformulated. The Mineral Pressed Powders still contain sun protection, however, due to new FDA rules and guidelines, sun protection must be broad spectrum. If it is not broad spectrum you can no longer label it on our products or packaging.

          Brit, According to new rule and regulations from the Food and Drug Administration all products labeled with a sunscreen claim must be broad spectrum. Because the mineral powders you mentioned are not broad spectrum we cannot make an SPF claim on the product or packaging. We will contact the retailer to have them update their information.
