Great for daily use

I love to use this powder for everyday use. It sets everything so smoothly and I don't have to worry so much about cake face.

No shine natural finish

Just a light coating of this powder on a big powder brush will set my entire face, giving it a natural, not overly matte finish. I do find that I have to reapply powder or blot my t-zone, but even with reapplication it doesn't give an overly dry, cakey-look to it.

Best for Baking!
Purchased

Absolutely love Laua Mercier Oil-Free Loose Setting Powder. I am approaching my 40's and have really been focusing a lot on skin care and make-up secrets to help preserve what I have left of a youthful appearance. I am new to baking and am in love with the process. I have learned to conceal my under eye darkness and loss of volume with the proper under eye moisturizers and concealers. This powder is perfect for baking, my fine lines are so much easier to conceal...definitely a must have for your beauty routine.

Works for everyone
Purchased

I swear by the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I wear it like a foundation because that's all I really need but I started putting the setting powder on top of that to really finish it. My roommate also uses Laura Mercier foundation and has used my powder while deciding if she wants to buy it for herself. I'm very fair skinned (using the lightest of light shade) while she has Hispanic lineage and wears (at least until she runs out of her stockpile) bamboo beige. It works for both of us, but does tend to make me a little paler if I put it on too heavily.

Stay Put!
Sampled

The powder works. Period. I used a kabuki brush to lightly dust my full face and then follow up with a setting spray and the make up stay put. There's no transferring throughout the day which is great considering my foudation is carmel colored and shows up easily if it gets on clothing. I needs more! lol

This is such a great product!
I never used setting powder before but now I can’t live without it. A little goes a long way so you get a lot of product for your money. It also leaves my skin looking flawless and even.

GAVE AWAY

Since I invested$150 on 5 makeup brushes, I can use dry concealer. I used this over a high end liquid concealer and it brought out my wrinkles and just made e look older. wasn't a fan.

This works great at controlling shine. Feels very light but works perfectly.
