A multi-purpose, modern all-over pressed powder that sets, perfects, and finishes, leaving skin with a diffused, luminous glow.

This silky pressed powder has just enough sheer colour to add the perfect, subtle glow and brighten up a complexion with a soft-focus finish. Apply with different brushes to customize your finish and coverage and create multiple looks.

Luminous Finish

Soft, luminous finish leaves a natural, all-over glow. Sets your makeup without mattifying your skin. In a range of subtly perfecting shades for all skin tones.

Soft-Focus Effect for a More Flawless Look

Like the Laura Mercier Setting Powders, this Perfecting Powder has a soft-focus effect that subtly blurs the look of fine lines and imperfections. Doesn't settle into fine lines or pores and never looks cakey.

I really love this. It gives you a soft focus finish and blends everything together. I use it as a finishing powder. I'm tempted to get a darker one and try it as bronzer.

This is by far my favorite bronzer. I use the shade medium to give my cheeks a nice contour. My makeup stays in place all day..I have dry skin so its good for that. It blends really well.

These are absolutely everything. If your looking for coverage this is not it! But if you are looking to bring skin like luminosity back to already set skin. I would recommend this 10 times over!

I love everything Laura Mercier, and I didn't think I could love anything as much as the loose translucent powder, but this is fantastic! It gives a smooth matte finish. It's perfect for setting your whole face! 5 stars from me!

This product is amazing! I have combo / normal skin and using this to set my foundation it perfect! My skin does not look cakey but healthy and radiant. Lord knows I can use healthy and radiant lol without looking like a grease ball. I love how this is paraben, oil free , etc. this product is definitely worth every penny. Please consider purchasing! It's perfect for all skin types, especially dry ladies who struggle to find a perfect powder to set even wear alone :)

Review for: 3 - Light to Medium more...
This finishing powder is the best ever, I have the shade 3. This product was recommended from a Sephora Makeup Artist and I am so glad she told me about this product. I get comments about my complexion all the time whenever I have this product on. I recommend this product to everyone. It is a little pricey but well worth it. It smoothes the texture on my face and gives me a glow as well, I love it .

I first want to start off by saying if you have oily skin this would definitely not help combat that! Otherwise, this is a beautiful setting powder that can add a soft yet subtle luminosity to the skin. On my lazy days I would spot conceal and wear this powder to give the illusion of perfect skin.

I will likely by again when I am ready, but I may drop a shade down and buy the deepest shade as a bronzer. Oh and its best to use this after you give your foundation some time to dry because moisture causes the powder to kind of harden. Scraping a thin layer off will help if that happens, but for the price and quantity I feel thats a waste.

This is a really great product! It's a high end brand. You get what your paying for. Think of using a setting powder with a really stunning glowy finish. I love to use this when I'm not in the mood for foundation. I'll apply a little concealer & then set it with this powder. This gives you a natural look with a light radiant glow. Definitely something you should spurlg on & give it a try. :)

THIS IS NOT MUCH OF A HIGHLIGHTER BUT...Since I can get a stronger glow elsewhere with other products, I am not too worried that I didn’t see added luminosity happening here. I didn’t think the powder took away from the glow on my skin (unless if I were full out DEWY I suppose). The Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder does make my skin look better by blurring imperfections, and that is what I will be using this powder for! I suggest you test out this powder if you want that soft focus action!

Can this be used as a basic powder, or is it more of a highlighting powder?

Have seen great reviews on this but I was wondering if it is glittery. I don't mind it having a shimmer, I just don't want it to have a lot of glitter to it.
