To quote the great Lizzo (Lizzo for president!), it ain’t my fault if I’m out here getting loose. And I say that because I’ve been wearing Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow ($39), so, ya know…I’m getting loose with it, ha ha ha!
(I don’t blame it on the goose or my juice, in case you were wondering.)
This face setting powder is a rare gem. It has a subtle pearly finish (I know, blowing your mind right now!), which sets makeup without making pores look like moon craters (an issue with any sort of powder with shimmer or sheen).
Yes, you can wear it all over your face! It adds a hint of dewiness, so your face doesn’t look flat or too matte, and it does this without showing off your fine lines or smile lines, a.k.a your experience lines.
You can also wear it like a traditional highlighter as well, if all-over glow is a little too much for ya.
Oh, and did I mention that it feels weightless and doesn’t look cake-y? It’s so good, you guys. So, so good.
You know, if you like that dewy skin look, but you don’t want to look greasy or a shiny metallic robot, this is it.
A big 1-oz. jar is $39 (comes with a sifter, but it doesn’t come with a brush or powder puff though), and there are two shade options — one lighter and one darker. I wear the lighter option, and it works fine with my NC42 skin.
I like to apply it with a big fluffy brush, buffing the smallest amount over my face, because I like the sheen to look very diffused.
Check it out! You can find Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow in the permanent line at Laura Mercier counters and lauramercier.com.
