Product Review: Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15

I love my Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15 ($35) so much that I just had to tell you about it. Ever since I started wearing it, the compliments have been rolling in. It's made of minerals, so it goes on feeling light and velvety and doesn't give me any hint of an organe-y tint (something I hate)!

Also, it contains SPF 15 and it's water-resistant, so even at the beach, I can keep myself protected while looking tan. In addition, it's formulated with 15 amino acids to banish toxins, and it helps promote skin cell regeneration. I love how looking gorgeous can be good for you!

The best part is the way it gives me a really natural and fresh sun-kissed glow. It's got a light shimmer to it that isn't over the top, and it doesn't get caught in the little creases in my eye area like some shimmery products tend to do. It looks great in photos and it blends exceptionally well so that you don't get any streaks around your jawline or your hairline—a big bronzer faux pas.

The only draw back is that it's messy. The powder spreads like wildfire if you aren't careful, so what I've been doing is tapping a little bit into the cap and then wiping the cap out after I am finished with my application. It's not ideal, but I am not going to let it stop me from getting my fix!

Laura products are great and the mineral foundation is a little differnt from BE. P.S. The Mercier holiday collection is gonna be awsome! I got to see pics at a counter-can't wait!

Oh my, I love my Bare Escentuals and now I want to try this. I have to wait for a light shade :( I wear fair in BE. Bella check one of the BE mineral carrying case. My fav one comes with a kabuki brush and it makes the mess much easier to deal with. The Item Number is A3976 and it's on :D

I LOVE mine I'm so glad you're spreading the word. BE/BM is too frosted and too "sparkly" for my tastes. I have larger pores so I can't wear that stuff. But Laura Mercier's is perfect. Her mineral shadows are awesome, too :o)

What's the best way to apply this -- puff or brush?

You should get the travel case made for bare escentuals, Bella. I use it everyday to combat the mess- it keeps the powder contained and neat with no spill. You could use it for your Laura Mercier!

I love using Bare Escentuals foundation. But if this one is water-resistent, I got to try it.

I would love to try this but as other commenters have said, the color range is very limited. I like her tinted moisturizer in Porcelain but can't find a match in her new powder foundation! :(

I agree, this stuff is VERY nice! But the shades are really limited, and the lightest happens to be WAY too dark for me :( I hope they expand the selection soon!
