Laura Mercier Translucent Powder Review



I usually create posts as and when I purchase products, so god knows why it has taken me so long to get this post up and live on my blog, it must have slipped through the net. I don’t think that this Laura Mercier Translucent Powder needs any introduction because everybody and their mothers has been using this for the longest time, me included.

This is just one of them cult products that every makeup lover should own. I have mentioned it many times but I have oily skin so I need to set my foundation with powder if not I will just look a hot mess. I have tried loads of powders throughout the years and then I stumbled upon this beauty.


This is such a great powder. Laura Mercier really did everything right when it came to creating this powder. This tub that I got was £29 for 30g of product, which is pretty good when it comes to lose powder. For the longest time I was using the No7 powder which was £13 for 9, so I guess this powder is better value for money.




The powder itself is like velvet. It is so finely milled that it feels like silk on the skin when it glides on. I love to set all of my face with this powder but the best thing that I have used this powder for is baking underneath my eyes. I pack this stuff on using my damp Beauty Blender and it makes the area look airbrushed and absolutely flawless.




I do prefer this Laura Mercier powder to bake with over any other powder because it is the only one that I feel doesn’t leave a white cast under the eyes. Even though I adore the RCMA no colour powder, I feel that when it is packed on it can look quite white, especially on photos.

The Laura Mercier Translucent Powder packaging is to die for. Normally with powder packaging you can’t get too adventurous because it is just a tub, but this packaging looks really luxurious and even looks pretty sat upon your desk or dressing table.

I have bought this powder now about 5 times and I cannot see myself ever stopping from buying it. I do have to say that for an everyday powder I would more gravitate towards the RCMA powder purely because the quality matches that of the Laura Mercier and it is 90g for £10 which is incredible. But if I want a bit of luxury I will grab this one without any hesitation.

I highly recommend this so all makeup lovers out there need to give this a go straight away guys! I will link below to where you can pick up all the products mentioned in this post…

  2. I really want to try this! I'm oily too but find the RCMA powder doesn't do much for me :( I love the No7 powder, I have the pressed version and it's amazing!

  3. I've heard many people mention this product and it sounds lovely although i don't know if my dry//dehydrated skin with a skiny t-zone would work well with this loose powder. Maybe it would do a good job for my t-zone, especialy my nose. My nose seems to break up any foundation I place on it.

    1. A good powder for dry skin is the RCMA No Colour powder, it may sound silly, but it is really hydrating, well as hydrating as a powder can be!
