Laura Mercier has expanded her setting powder category with a new light creating setting powder and I am super excited about it. Laura Mercier Light Catcher Setting Powder is the luminous version of the original powder. The iconic and bestselling Translucent Loose Setting Powder from the brand does not need an introduction. It is one of the best loose powders that I have tried. It is super lightweight, finely milled, and very easy to apply. Therefore, a luminous version of an already amazing product is always exciting.
Laura Mercier Light Catcher Setting Powder is a silky, lightweight, airy powder that feels like a breeze of air rather than a powder. It does not feels heavy or settles into pores or problem areas, same as its original version. This luminous powder blurs my pores and problem areas, making the skin look even and smooth. There is a multi-dimensional pearl blend in the formula that not only imparts radiance but is also flash and camera-friendly. There is no photo flashback. On my combination skin, I have not experienced any congestion. It does not settle on the oily parts of the skin nor does it emphasizes the dry areas.
Laura Mercier Light Catcher Setting Powder is available in three luminous shades. It has a blend of cool and warm multi-dimensional pearls that catch the light, so it does not matter what the skin's undertone is. Please note that the below descriptions for which shade is for what skin tone are per the official description of the powder. From that I have experience, the three shades of the powder work pretty well on all skin tones. Celestial light works nicely as a highlighting shade for me. As the powders provide very light sheer coverage, they work on all skin tones. Honey Star is my shade for the overall application. Cosmic rose works nicely as a shade to add shadow or depth to the face.
- Celestial Light – Champagne beige shade for fair to light skin tones
- Honey Star – Golden peach shade for Medium skin tones
- Cosmic Rose – Bronzed rose shade for medium-deep to deep skin tones
The silky botanical blurring powder in the formula helps blur and smooth the look of pores, texture, and imperfections. Also, the Amino Acid Skin Conditioning Powders in the formula melt into the skin for a sheer finish that improves the look of the skin.
In terms of longevity, Light Catcher Setting Powder performs very well. As the day passes and the natural oils from the skin mix with the products on the top, the radiance does not look oily or greasy at all. The makeup lasts long overall and the skin looks smooth and even. It is forgiving in case I apply a little heavy-handedly. Overall, an amazing launch from the amazing Laura Mercier. It is the perfect combination with the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free that I am using non-stop these days. It also works well with the other Laura Mercier bases like Flawless Lumiere Radiance Foundation.
