Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Review
Product Description
A classic is a classic for a reason. Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder has found its way into so many people’s makeup routines not only by being fantastic at what it set out to do—a “holy grail,” if there ever was one—but also because these days, you’d be hard-pressed to find enthusiasts who haven’t already gotten on this train, or at least tried the product. This product works overtime to make sure its wearer’s makeup does not budge. After application, one can also see how the powder blurs the appearance of blemishes and fine lines and wrinkles. And above all, this is one loose powder that won’t give its wearer the dreaded ghost-like “flashback” effect. A must-have staple for any enthusiast’s kit (as long as you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients).
