Laura Mercier's Loose setting powder has been a part of my makeup routine for as long as I remember. It was one of the first few things I had when I got interested in makeup and everything beauty. It is one of the best, never looks cakey or gives a grey cast. Also, it does not accentuate problem areas, it is just what I need on the days I wear makeup. It made me so excited when I saw the ‘glow' version of the iconic and cult product from Laura Mercier. I mean the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow.
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow is the same iconic setting powder that comes in a glow finish. The original powder is infused with pearl pigments for a healthy glow finish. It does not add weight or texture but creates a radiant finish. It imparts a touch of sheer coverage as it creates a soft-focus effect to subtly blur the fine lines and imperfections. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow is available in 2 shades, Translucent, and Translucent Medium Deep.
Key Features of the ‘Glow' powder
Few of the key features of the new ‘glow' version of the powder are below:
- Sets makeup for prolonged wear as it has the same base formula as the Translucent Loose Setting Powder, just that this one is infused with pearl pigments.
- It helps to absorb excess oil and controls its appearance for a longer time, all day for most skin types
- The powder has a lightweight formula that blurs the look of fine lines
- It provides sheer coverage and helps bronzer, blush, and highlighter go on more smoothly and evenly
- Above all, it is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin types.
I have been using the Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow for a few days now to set my makeup. I have the shade Translucent Medium Deep which is not as dark as it looks in the jar. It is quite sheer and applies beautifully to the skin without giving any coverage. It also imparts a glow to the skin, blurs my problem areas, and does not emphasize the problem areas.
The finish is radiant, not oily or greasy, like the glow from within, do not confuse glow with an oily glow. The powder is very finely milled, very smooth to touch and apply, blends effortlessly into the skin. It does not feel cakey during the day, feels like I have no powder on top. The staying power is nice. I do look dewier by the end of the day as my skin secretes its own oils. It keeps the makeup intact for the whole day and a little is all I need. The powder brush works great with the powder. I have used it even with my other powder brushes and it works well too.
Laura Mercier Glow Powder Brush
Laura Mercier Glow Powder Brush is the new brush launched with the Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow. It helps apply the powder evenly on the face. It has a specific structure to glide on easily on the natural curves of the face. The contoured end of the brush can be used to set in the curves of the face. And, also to build glow in key areas like the cheeks, bridge of the nose, and above eyebrows.

With this new Glow Powder Brush, I feel is more control over where to apply. I have sometimes mixed and matched with the original loose setting powder. The original being on the oily areas of my combination skin. And the new ‘glow‘ version above my eyebrows and cheeks. Thus, they both work perfectly together. I am really enjoying the ‘glow' as fall is here and an extra way to feel special is always welcome. I love using this powder over my staples from Laura Mercier. That includes Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation and Secret Camouflage. Also, the Translucent Loose Setting Powder in shade Honey is also a new addition to the loose powder range.
