I never gave much thought to wrinkles and face creases until I became serious about makeup. I was doing fine with my banana powder from a contour kit I have. But, the more makeup I started wearing the more pronounce the crease under my eye became. My best friend assured me it wasn’t so bad (she’s my personal guru and go-to for advice!)but it still bothered me so much.
So I started doing research and research. Until one day my husband gave me that nudge and told me to “just buy it!!’. So I did! I was a bit hesitant because Nicole Guerriero claimed the translucent powder is ‘a bit drying’. Of course, I kept watching different videos of people who claimed to have the same type of skin as me. Also read some of the reviews on the Sephora website and I am so glad I did. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is amazing.
An extremely lightweight, sheer and silky setting powder that contains the finest French “cashmere” talc and a unique light-reflecting ingredient that creates a “soft-focus” appearance for fine lines and imperfections. The oil-free powder sets makeup to prolong wear leaving a natural look without appearing cakey or powdery.
Non-comedogenic -from their website .
It is another item that is worth every pretty shiny penny! I am not big on baking, if I’m honest it intimidates me, but a quick sweep of it and BAM! Crease be gone! Now, when I say that don’t think it completely got rid of it. Its just how my under eye is. What I do mean is since wearing it I’ve noticed my makeup doesn’t cake up in there. I thought it was the concealer I was using so I started hoarding concealers in hopes of finding one that would solve the problem. Then the makeup gods brought me closer to Laura Mercier. I recently ran out of setting spray and its starting to warm up in Florida so I freaked! Then I remembered a friend mentioned it can be used for an all over setting powder. I gave it a shot and. . . I AM HIGHLY IMPRESSED. It did the job, lasted 8+hrs, and kept my makeup looking good. I swear by Skindanavia and Urban Decay’s De slick and the powder held up as good as if I would’ve sprits myself with either of those!
The brushed photographed with the powder is just an elf blush brush. But it can be applied with a beauty blender or makeup sponge as well. I haven’t noticed a difference. Anyone know if there is??
I definitely recommend it because its for sure going to stay as part of my collection!
