Laura Mercier Medium Deep Translucent Setting Powder

Laura Mercier's Iconic Setting Powder Now Comes in a Shade For Brown Girls

Whether you contour faithfully or take a minimalist approach to your daily makeup routine, there's no denying the importance of having a great setting powder. Lightly dusting your face with a semiopaque pigment helps keep your makeup in place all day. It also absorbs oils and cancels shine to keep your skin matte for hours.

One of my all-time favorite setting powders β€” and possibly the best one of its kind β€” is Laura Mercier's Translucent Setting Powder ($38). It launched back in the '90s and has been one of the brand's bestsellers. In fact, it's so good, it has over 290,000 loves and 4,000 reviews on Sephora.com. It's also earned a four-star rating . . . but in my opinion is more deserving of five stars. One light swipe immediately hides excess shine around my T-zone and makes my skin appear filtered IRL. The powder also promises an oil-free face for hours and actually delivers. However, there's a good chance that the brand didn't achieve that perfect rating because the sheer pigment may not have worked for women with dark skin.

Now, the brand has made its hero powder all the more covetable by extending the range to include a medium-deep shade for women with darker complexions. Though the traditional powder looks completely transparent on a spectrum of skin tones, it may appear ashy or cause an embarrassing flashback in photos on deeper skin. The brand created the new shade to ensure that women with warm complexions can achieve a completely translucent and flawless finish. Like the original natural hue, you can use this to lightly absorb oil, set your makeup, and bake your face.
