Best Loose Power Ever!

”I’ve been using this for over a decade and it’s amazing! It’s not chalky or heavy, it’s silky and satiny. I wear it over the original Tinted Moisturizer and it leaves my skin looking healthy and flawless. It works well over any foundation I use but my favorite is to use it over the tinted moisturizer. A little pricey but there’s a lot in the package compared to most other companies. I can’t recommend this enough.”

My HG powder. It sets my foundation beautifully and absorbs all the excess oil without looking cakey. It just makes my face a lot smoother. I am in love with this powder. Definitely the best loose powder I have ever tried.

Holy grail

This is my first ever high end powder and it really holds up to its claims! It keeps the oils at bay and it doesn't have white cast, so it's perfect for photoshoots and selfies. I've had this for over a year now and I still have about more than half of the tub. The only downside to this is you can't travel with it because it's loose and can be messy when you retouch. I use a dome brush to apply it.

Out of all the powders I own, this one most definitely has the most longevity. When I apply this at 8 am in the morning, I can always count on this powder staying intact on my face throughout the day (even on very oily T-Zone). You need the tiniest bit of this powder or else it can look quite cakey but since a little goes a very long way the price is most definitely justified and I can see this powder lasting at least a few years! Could not recommend this powder enough, especially for those who like an airbrushed, full finish foundation.

This is by far the most amazing product that I own. It definitely does what it claims and it doesn't oxidize on me unlike some of my other translucent powder. The finish is matte with luminous look and it stays pretty long. Usually, I get oily after and hour or two after i put on my makeup (no matter what oil control product i put on my face), but this keeps my oily face at bay for a good 4 to 6 hours. Imagine the blotting paper that you will save :)

Worth every penny!

It's so hard for me to find a powder that won't clog my pores but will keep me fresh and oil-free without making me look overly-matte. So far, this is the only one I trust. At first I was hesitant to buy it because I usually don't spend that much on a single piece of cosmetic. But I'm glad I did! A little goes a very, very long way so you get a lot of value for your money.

Worth it!

My first loose powder was something I bought on sale on some website so I can have free shipping so the quality of this Laura Mercier powder changed my life. I'm very oily but this reduced the amount of blotting paper I need to use. It leaves my skin feeling soft and looking airbrushed after. The best part is that it doesn't leave a white cast like my old one. Will be saving up for a new one for when I run out!
