    It’s not a cult favorite for nothing—the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow is certainly something to get excited about! Most interestingly, this iconic cult-favorite setting powder now comes in a GLOW finish. Now, for the first time, you can set your look without over-doing it—you’ll have a naturally luminous finish. Laura Mercier actually went ahead and infused their Translucent Loose Setting Powder with a custom blend of pearl pigments to lock in your look for at least 12-hours! 

    What the fuss is all about…

    12 Hour Luminous Finish:
    Custom pearl blend creates a radiant finish with a touch of sheer coverage that resists settling into fine lines and pores. Keeps makeup in place for 12 hours.

    Weightless Texture:
    This lightweight, innovative powder doubles the wear of foundation without adding weight or texture.

    No Photo Flashback:
    This no-flashback formula is perfect for photos and creates a soft-focus effect to subtly blur the look of fine lines and imperfections without looking cakey.

    Two Shades for Virtually All Skin tones:
    Translucent: Perfect for fair to medium and tan skin tones.
    Translucent Medium Deep: Ideal for medium-deep to deep skin tones.

    Non-comedogenic, which means it won’t cause you to break out. 



    Apply with the specially designed Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow puff (sold separately) to set makeup flawlessly and prolong wear. You can also use a nice and poofy powder puff if you prefer that instead.


    Sprinkle Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder- Glowinto the product lid.
    With the top curve of the Glow Powder Brush, pick up product and blend on the back of your hand to distribute powder evenly through bristles.
    Sweep and buff all over the face to set. 

    Set with Dimension
    •Pat down to matte, brush up to glow. Set makeup and create dimension by artfully applying the two finishes of TLSP, matte to recede and glow to reflect, on specific areas of the face.

    Set down
    •Set makeup and reduce the look of unwanted shine and texture.
    •Determine the areas you want to set down—these are typically places you want to recede, areas of texture, or areas of high shine.
    •Using Laura’s Velour Puff, press and roll the powder on those areas, including the forehead, lower cheeks, sides of nose, around the mouth and chin and lower jawline.

    Set up
    •Set makeup and reflect light on the high points of the face to create a natural glow.
    •Determine the areas you want to set up with luminosity–this is typically where skin is naturally smooth or where you want to catch the light.
    •Using the Glow Powder Brush application technique described above, apply TLSP Glow on the areas you want to set with luminosity—this can include the temples, cheek bones and apples, bridge of nose, and cupid’s bow.

    Final thoughts

    I really am amazed by the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder-Glow! I like to bake with it. No, I don’t mean a cake in the oven, I mean baking powder on my face! I let it sink and soak in while I line and shadow my eyes. I then take a blender brush and a powder puff and smooth it all in, together for a seamless look,

    The powder lasts all day, looks wonderful— it doesn’t cake or crack, run or smear. As a woman of a certain age, I don’t want dry powder to settle into fine lines, and thankfully, this doesn’t do that to me. It’s fantastic and worth the $38 price tag.
