Laura Mercier: Universal Setting Powder

Hello Everyone!
Do you have look in the mirror a few hours into your day and wonder why your concealer has settled into those fine lines and has creased? Laura Mercier Universal Invisible Loose Setting Powder may just be the answer you are looking for!

This is the Website's claim:

 "One invisible formula that works for all skin tones, from light to deep. This powder contains unique light-reflecting, micro-refined spherical silica powders that help create a soft-focus appearance, diminishing the look of fine lines and imperfections while visibly smoothing skin"
  • Disappears upon application to flawlessly set makeup for all-day wear
  • Matches all skin tones to blend in easily and effortlessly
  • Leaves a smooth, soft finish
  • Visibly diminishes the look of fine lines
  • Non-cakey or "powdery"
  • Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive
  • Paraben-Free
  • Talc Free
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Oil Free
  • 0.4 oz./11.3g

 I would agree with almost all of the claims expect for one. This powder WHEN PHOTOGRAPHED will make the skin seem smoother and will give an effect of "diminishing fine lines". But this is not a magic powder and it will not magically smooth out wrinkles.

ALSO, using flash photography may cause this powder to "flash back" if you apply to much. A little goes a long way with this powder!!

This powder does set your under eye concealer and foundation beautifully though! It does leave a soft finish that does not look cakey or powdery.  I also love using this powder in the "T-zone" to matte the skin.

I love this powder but WHY DID THEY LABEL THIS UNEVENLY?? That drives me crazy!! 

Overall I would give this powder a huge thumbs up! I use this on most of my clients and I have purchased a second one to start using on myself! 
Price:            $ 35.00
Pro Price:     $21.00

I hope this was helpful :)
