Laura Mercier Translucent Powder Review



I usually write and upload my review 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.

I have to start off this blog post by saying that this is such a great powder. Laura Mercier really did everything right when it came to create this powder and that is why it has been a permanent item in my makeup collection for the longest time. I am sure that this Laura Mercier Translucent powder set me back around £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. To be honest though, before I bought this product, it really didn’t concern me how much you got in the tub, I just finally wanted to get around to trying it for myself.

As you apply this powder to the face, it literally feels 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 will then grab my huge La Mer powder brush to dust this all over the face and lock everything into place. I make sure that all of my face is covered with a nice and light layer and then I am good to go for the day.

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 which I guess isn’t a concern for an everyday basis when I am just going to work and back. I feel like whenever I use the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder, my makeup looks airbrushed, my skin looks smooth and it keeps my makeup in place really well all-day long.

When I apply this translucent powder all over my face, I know that I don’t have to worry about my makeup all day long. I tend to get oily around my nose and I find that this product keeps the whole area nice and matte all day long. Depending on the kind of day, I might have to go in with a touch of powder a couple of hours in, but it is never anything dramatic because the Laura Mercier really does do all of the work. If you are an oily girl like I am, I can really see you liking this product. I just wish that they had a compact of the same formula powder for when I am out and about!

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 will also opt for my Laura Mercier powder if I have an occasion like a party or a wedding where I need my makeup to look perfect all-day long.

I will leave a link to this product down below in case you want to check it out for yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried this Laura Mercier Translucent Powder for yourself and make sure to tell me what you think!

  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!
