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.

Seriously for the price of this product it is SO worth it. I bought this in a time pinch a while ago and didn’t expect much from it and I loved it. I use the Laura Mercier now but I love this one almost as much and for the price you cannot beat it ...read more

Our Take

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.

I've been using and loving the Laura Mercier setting powder for ages, and I decided to give this a try because I've been trying to purchase more affordable makeup (I'm a college student). This does as well of a job of setting my makeup as the Laura Mercier powder, except it's significantly cheaper!! It does have a strong scent like a baby powder, but it doesn't bother me much because it disappears rapidly. My makeup sets very well and even my oily T-zone remains shine-free for at least 5ish hours. The packaging is cute and a lot of product comes in the container! It's definitely my new favorite setting powder that I will be using daily. :) Highly recommend it for all skin types, and especially makeup addicts on a budget like myself. ...read more

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!

The consistency of this powder is very similar to the Laura Mercier powder, it is light on the skin. It is great for oily skin and keeps the makeup in place all day. Definitely recommend this to others! ...read more

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.

This translucent finishing powder worked wonders for a group of bridesmaids I was a member of during a full day of wedding festivities last summer. We were shine-free for the entire thanks to this stuff! An affordable alternative to high-end brands like Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. ...read more

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.
