Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder in MEDIUM DEEP

“Change only what you can’t live with, but try to accept who you are, and say yes to what makes you unique. Your confidence will make you sexier than any beauty product or accessory you could possibly buy.”

_ Laura Mercier


I’ve said this before and I’ll say this again I’m not an MUA nor have I ever claimed to be one.  I’m just a regular degular shmegular girl who has a real love for makeup.  With that being said I’m love love love Laura Mercier’s translucent loose setting powder.  I was always a fan of the  translucent loose setting powder but now the brand has added a new shade called Medium Deep.  This setting power is a silky, lightweight setting powder with a touch of sheer coverage offering a matte finish.  This medium deep tone oil-free, non-comedogenic, non-caking, dermatologically tested power can only be called a makeup blessing for darker tone makeup junkies like myself.  .

Laura Mercier’s translucent loose setting powder has long been a fan favorite.  To me it’s the best of the best.  The medium deep shade for me works just as good as the original.  When a brand tries to expand it’s range quality can be lost in that expansion.  That’s not the case with this power.  It still goes on evenly and feels like it melts into the skin.  It blends without adding weight or texture while providing great wear.`

Now let’s talk color.  Translucent loose setting powder in Medium Deep was designed for medium deep to the very deepest skin tones.  With the original shade would cause at time a flash back or a gray shadow of darker tone skin people.  The medium deep colored power know gives darker tones a translucent finish.  Laura Mercier brand recommends applying with the velour puff (sold separately). Only the 0.33 oz size /travel size of translucent powder comes with the velour puff.  I use a large fluffy brush.

I’m really in LOVE with the new shade.  The Translucent loose setting powder in Medium Deep works great for my skin tone.  It’s really easy to apply and doesn’t add weight to over all makeup application.  The current available is limited.  I was very lucky to get my hands on this powdery gold.  Also the medium deep is not currently sold in the 0.33 oz size /travel size.

    Hey girl! That powder looks amazing on you! I’m wearing Tarte right now but I’m always up to trying new brands. I miss wearing translucents. It reminds me of playing around in my mother’s makeup as a child. Hope you’re doing well!
