    Powders is one of the most important steps for me in my make up routine. I love a powder that not only sets my make up in place but also prevents creasing. I have tried so many (mainly drugstore) brands and have not been able to give the finish I need.

    This brand is known for offering a ‘Flawless Face’ and wants women to achieve a natural complexion. This beautiful powder from Laura Mercier is not only meant to set your make up but give a stunning velvet finish. It is lightweight, sheer and silky and creates a ‘soft-focus’ appearance for fine lines. Its oil-free and helps prolong wear for a natural look.

    My thoughts?

    The powder is finely milled and love the quality of this. Only a small amount is needed and dusts across the face beautifully and works well with any foundation. I found it kept my oils at bay and sets my base perfectly.

    However, I found it did not do the same for my under-eye. I tend to bake my concealer under my eyes as they crease first during the day. Once I baked, I noticed it looked cakey almost instantly and I could feel the weight of it under my eye for the rest of the day which was uncomfortable. I felt it didn’t match the flawless look to the rest of my make up. I do have a number of fine lines under my eye so its important I have a powder that sets well.

    Its a shame it didn’t work for all my needs – but will continue to use this as my base powder as I adore the finish it gives – I am still on the hunt for a under eye powder, any recommendations let me know!


    What are your thoughts on this powder?

      I’ve heard so many amazing things about this product, it’s interesting to hear an honest review that it’s cakey for you. I tend to stick to drugstore products nowadays because I can’t justify paying the money for high end when there’s great drugstore dupes. I use a Rimmel loose powder and it’s so good! x

        ooo.. i have only ever tried Rimmel pressed powders – may have to give the loose one a try. But i agree the drugstore ones are often better – i use makeup revolution banana powder to set my under eyes and works a dream for £5! Xxx

      I really like setting powders, they can be such a lifesaver! I used to use them so often and then I ran out of mine and for some reason I really struggle to find a one that I’d want in any store. Thank you for your recommendation!

    • I’ve heard so many amazing things about Laura Mercier powder! I find that whatever powder I use, I tend to get creases under my eyes, but my RCMA No Colour Powder is the one I swear by.. 🙊

      I’ve heard amazing things about this powder but it is a bit pricey, such a shame it didn’t do the job for your entire face though, you’d think it would! I need to pick up a smaller size of it to try it out!

      I’ve never used setting powder before as I don’t wear make up very often but love the honest review!x

      I’ve always seen about this powder! It’s a shame it didn’t work for undereye though that’s what I need the most

      I adore this powder! I actually only use this under my eyes and it works wonderfully. I have noticed though that the concealer I’m using can’t be dry at all but rather more liquidy. I haven’t tried this all over my face as my face is quite dry and only a handful of powders work for me. I need to give it a go though since I love it for under the eyes :)x

      I’m not the biggest fan on powders as I find they don’t really work for me but I must admit I’ve used my cousin’s Laura Mercier powder before and I loved how well it set my face! Great post Yasmin xx
