Not for oily skin

This is not a powder that controls oil but rather encourages oil production. If I went without any powder, I'd end up less oily at the end of the day than if I wore this one. It's pretty disappointing because it does look beautiful over the nars sheer glow foundation for the first few hours; it doesn't appear cakey, sets concealer under my eyes so that it doesn't crease throughout the day, and gives a natural looking glow which is great if you find your skin looks a little dull after putting on foundation.The packaging also is a bit of a let down. It's hard to tip product out without it going everywhere, so I'd recommend that you only open up half of the sticker that comes over the sifter - don't take the whole thing off.Overall, this would probably work really well with dry to normal skin, or just as a setting powder for under-eye concealer. « less user

HOLY GRAIL SETTING POWDER!!! This is just so perfect. The powder sets my base and my makeup stays on for all day. The translucent powder is a lightweight, sheer setting powder that leaves skin with a flawless finish. This powder is amazing; it gives such a natural look and makes my skin glow. You can't really even notice after you apply it, except for the fact that your skin looks perfect and smooth.This mattifies really well and it is perfect for touch-ups throughout the day, even though I hardly need much. This goes on so smoothly over my foundation, and it almost seems to blur out imperfections. It creates a matte finish with amazing coverage while absorbing oils and making the skin glow. < br class="Apple-interchange-newline" style="caret-color: rgb(0, 0, 0); color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: -webkit-standard;"> Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Less

Loved this! will def buy again!!!

Wow. This stuff is amazing. I just turned 33 and my skin has changed...a lot. It’s dry-ish now when it used to be oily.The first time I used this, I thought it was TOO glowy. But once I was finished with my makeup, I sprayed rose water hydrating mist all over my face. And it was PERFECT. I used it all over my face as a setting powder but it’s so fine that the light only hits the high points, so you don’t look like a disco ball.Spraying some kind of hydrating or setting mist over this is definitely recommended as it makes it look natural, like your skin is just super healthy and glowing!Y’all, my skin looked better than it did when I was 20. Even my husband noticed and said I was gorgeous, which doesn’t happen as often as I need to hear it!I would def recommend as an all-over setting powder to anyone who has normal to dry skin. If you have oily skin, this could work on top of a normal mattifying powder and then locked in with a long lasting setting powder, like UD. Less user

I have dry skin,

I have dry skin, and am prone to redness. This was my first time trying a translucent powder from Laura Mercier and it has been a great experience. I mainly use it to set my concealer, nose and a bit on my cheek area where I would put highlighter. It gives my under eyes a nice glow and makes my eyes look awake. If I'm going for a more natural look, I don't even need to use highlighter since it gives me a beautiful glow on my cheeks. Since it is a powder, it does have a matte finish but it has not been drying for me. Because it's meant to be a a glow, it does look 'shimmery.' A little goes a long way. I haven't noticed any fragrance to it and I would say it does exactly what the details description state - "lock in your look for 12-hour wear with a healthy glow." HIGHLY RECOMMEND user

OMG. I am SO happy Ulta now has the Laura Mercier GLOW setting powder!!! It is my ride or die. I've tried every other "illuminating" powder incpuld find and all of them had chunky glitter, gave a dry, matte finish or made my foundation oxidize. This powder gives such a nice subtle glow to the skin and wears well over EVERY foundation I've tried it with and makes them last all day. It is so hard to describe the finish of this foundation. It's like a subtle natural looking metallic. It's not a natural look exactly but it's not overpowering. just a nice, lightweight glow with amazing staying power. There is nothing else like this!!!
