The Best Dupes for Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
Set, Bake, and Brush!
When the highlighting technique "baking" began sweeping the beauty community, one product was in front of it all—Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. The powder, which is the number one ranked finishing and translucent powder on Influenster, was piled on top of the concealer and allowed to sit on the face for five to ten minutes—enough time for the baking process. The results? A flawless, creaseless complexion that prolonged makeup wear.
But with a $38 price tag, beauty junkies were quick to find some dupes of their favorite setting powder. Get ready to bake your makeup with these inexpensive finds Influensters can't stop raving about!
Have you tried any of these dupes? If so, how did they compare to the award-winning setting powder?
Not only does the e.l.f HD definition powder create a "soft focus" effect on the skin, it also masks fine lines and large pores. Best of all, you won't have to worry about all the harsh chemicals often found in makeup because this baby is paraben-free, phthalate-free, and sulfate-free.
Before baking even became a trend, chances are you had already used Coty Airpun Loose Face Powder. While the inexpensive drugstore find was great for setting your entire face, according to Influensters it works wonders for "cooking" your under eyes.
Part of the Maybelline FaceStudio line, this translucent powder sets and mattifies, leaving skin smooth from imperfections. For only $8.99, this drugstore product is a complete steal!
Often compared to the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, this drugstore alternative sets your makeup look while leaving a flawless finish. The powder itself does have a hint of color but it was designed that way to adjust to different skin tones.
Set your under eyes with COVERGIRL Professional Loose Powder. Allow the powder to sit on you face for a couple of minute to let the heat of your skin melt all the makeup into place. Once the time is up, simply take a fluffy brush and remove the excess powder.
