Review of Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder #howdoyouTLSP #contest

This is my first ‘blog’ review of a makeup product. I’ve always had my ‘go to’ products and my ‘yikes avoid this’ products.  I signed up on this app called “Influenester”  (you can find it on the Apple App Store).   I signed up to receive a free Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder to use and review.   I am a Setting Powder addict and I need it for my oily skin.

Let’s be clear, there are two types of powder you can use after your foundation.  Setting powder and Finishing powder.

Setting Powder – is used for after foundation.  You can use it daily.  It’s used as like a ‘final touch’ on your makeup.  I use it to absorb excess oil and to take the slight sheen that liquid foundation leaves on my skin.  Gives my look a soft natural look for the day.

Finishing Powder – goes on after a setting powder.  Finishing powder isn’t typically used every day.  I will use a finishing powder on someone who is going to an event (like a wedding or prom).  Somewhere they will be in front of a camera.  It gives the appearance of softer and silky skin.  You use this sparingly. HD powder is a finishing powder.

Beauty WARNING:  If you SET your foundation with a FINISHING powder, you’ll get that white ghostly look … that’s no bueno.  Imagine the photo you see in the beauty mags of celebrities who have the blotches on their faces with white powder.  Someone didn’t use the finishing powder sparingly.

Why do I like it?

  • The powder is light and sets perfectly
  • Does not leave a residue after application
  • Powder doesn’t have a high ‘talc’ smell
  • Powder felt weightless



I took some before and after photos (see below).  I did a full face with contour, lashes … etc.  The works.  I can post another blog with the products I used in the before and after below.  Excuse the lighting, I was sitting on the floor in my studio.  Because some days, you just want to do makeup on the floor.

I even went and did another face using a different foundation.  I love the softness it gives my skin.

I have oily skin.  I mean, oil companies panic when I go near an ocean for fear they will be blamed for an oil spill. Seriously, it’s a situation.  I am impressed. Laura Mercier delivered when this product was created. I admire Laura Mercier and her brand.  She has been in the industry since the mid ’90s, however, I didn’t discover her products until about 8 years ago. Where was she hiding?  Nowhere, I hadn’t fallen into the makeup world yet.  Haha.  All in all, I approve of the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder.  I am excited to add this to my makeup kit.  My clients are going to love their finished look.
