Hey Makeup Beauties!
You guys probably already know all about the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder and the Cult she has established with this product! I have been hearing about it for awhile now and didn’t realize why until recently, when I tried their NEW sister, Medium Deep.
I am not gonna lie, I was both leary and excited about trying this product. Excited because I keep hearing how amazing her powders are from everyone, including my darker tone gal pals. Leary for two reasons. One, because when it comes to deeper tones it is really hard to find a translucent powder that doesn’t make me look Casper the Friendly Ghost. Two, Simply because I have heard it so many times before. The color will match your skin perfect. I know the perfect setting powder for your skin tone…blah blah blah, and once I try it, well you know story. However, let me break it down for you in an equation.
White powder/light powder + dark skin = ashiness (EEEKKK)!
Check out just what I mean below. Yep! Me in the back looking all GHOST LIKE! OMG! I really needed a no-flashback formula here! HA!
When I first saw this pic I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, but at THAT VERY moment I knew I needed to figure out how I could make a change for the better. That is when I got serious about my skincare and trying new products that fit my skin type/tone. Don’t get me wrong it has been and still is a journey, but things are definitely improving.
So although annoyed and frustrated with my previous results I decided to go ahead and give it a try and boy am I happy I did.
My opinion of the product:
- Medium Deep is IDEAL/PERFECT for medium-deep to the deepest skin tones.
- It has an amazing matte finish with a touch of sheer coverage.
- Wore it for about 5 hours and I didn’t look shiny or ashy.
- Does not cake (Non-cakey).
- Laura Mercier is BRILLIANT!
- 1 – 10 rating. 10 being the highest! 10+! Finally a powder for ME!!!
LAURA MERCIER TLSP – MEDIUM DEEP – $38.00
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder contains the finest French cashmere talc, which results in sheer, silky powder that looks and feels natural. It also contains a unique light-reflecting ingredient that creates a soft-focus appearance on your skin, minimizing the visibility of fine lines and imperfections. This no-flashback formula means you’ll look great in photos, and it creates a soft-focus effect to subtly blur the look of fine lines and imperfections. It will not settle into fine lines or pores and never looks cakey.
How to use: Dip your powder puff (sold separately) in the powder and then massage the powder in the puff. Remove excess by tapping the puff on top of your skin. Use a rolling motion to work the powder into your skin.
