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.


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.

Figures you'd discontinue it....it's the best on the market!


I can't believe that you would just stop manufacturing the very best product on the market that makes every age group look fabulous. It's so disheartening and really difficult to stand behind a company that stops producing a key item with absolutely no warning or reason to it's public. I'm sure it was a man that made this decision because any woman that actually uses this would never get rid of it.

PLEASE bring this back!


I have used this product for almost six years and it makes me so sad to think I won't be able to get it again. It has the best coverage and good for touch ups.

This is the very best powder I have ever used, and I have never found another that has such a flawless, yet almost creamy texture. Please bring this back!

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.

Best Powder Ever! Please Never Discontinue!!!!!!!!!!


I love this powder! I have been using it for years! It is the only powder that last all day and I don't have to worry about ever looking in the mirror cause I know it lays perfectly all day. It gives a flawless smooth look everytime and I constantly get asked which foundation I am using. Works well over tinted moisturizer and foundation! I highly recommend!

Best Foundation EVER


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.

LOVED it before reformulated


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.




Best powder foundation!


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!

I have a fair skin in warm undertones. It's Real sand color good for me? In my country I can't buy soft porcelain color.


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.


I have been using the smooth finish foundation powder in the shade number 4. I would to try the mineral pressed powder, but not sure what color would match my skin. What shade should I try? Thanks


Carla, Rich Vanilla is the closest Mineral Pressed Powder shade match to Smooth Finish Foundation Powder shade 4.


Hi! How should (which side) of the double sided applicator should I use? Thanks! Elaine


Elaine, 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.


If I use the camouflage concealer in #2, what is likely the most compatible color?


Sherry, Your Mineral Pressed Powder shade match will be Real Sand.


Hi. I use the tinted moisturizer in nude. What mineral powder color would look best. Also, can I wear the powder alone? Thanks


That's all I ever wear. Sent from my iPhone


What color of the mineral pressed powder will work with LM Tinted Moisturizer in Natural?


Vicki, Mineral Pressed Powder shade Rich Vanilla is the closest shade match to Tinted Moisturizer shade Natural.


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.


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.


In Sephora website shows this pressed powder has SPF15 degree, But why in official website it doesn't label it? Also the Loose mineral powder too.


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.


Hi, I use the color Nude in LM Oil free tinted moisturizer, which one of the mineral pressed powders will be a good match?


Zfzfz , Mineral Pressed Powder Real Sand is the closest shade match to Tinted Moisturizer Nude.


I have used Smooth Finish Foundation in 04 colour and have found it a good match. What would be the equivalent colour in the Mineral Pressed Powder? I already have the Rich Vanilla but find it a bit too orange for my skin, especially on the jawline.


KB, Real Sand is the Mineral Pressed Powder foundation shade closest to Smooth Finish Foundation Powder 04.
