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.

This is by far the best purchase I made in 2016! From the texture to the application, very classy touch. I love how it adds a nice glow to my makeup wnd makes my cheeks pop! Very easy to apply with a highlighter brush! I definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice touch of glow

This sheer powder gives me a subtle glow while at the same time making my face look flawless! It makes me look like I'm lit from within and who doesn't like that?? I have used so many different finishing powders and Laura Mercier is consistently better than all the rest. You get what you pay for guys and this one is worth it!

Review for: 5 - Medium to Deep more...
This is the most beautiful powder for the face! I use a darker shade than my skin color so I can use it to bronze! I'm so glad that I did because I know it's not meant to be a bronzer but it is BEAUTIFUL as a bronzer. It gives you a natural sunkissed look. It's lightweight and very finely milled. A very luxe powder. Buy a darker shade and try this as a bronzer!

I can’t say enough great things about this powder. If you’re familiar with the M.A.C Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and love that.... then know that the Laura powder is 10 times better. It’s so finely milled that it gives the softest illuminating glow to the skin without applying extra coverage. Shade range (6 colors) is sufficient to cover many.

This is such a beautiful powder. It’s a baked product that sets your makeup beautifully while giving you a soft pretty sheen to the face it’s great for soft skin and I love using this product mixed with another setting powder to give you a matte finish with a sheen I would buy again

I absolutely love this powder. It’s beautiful to set your makeup with. It is expensive but I think it’s worth it. It gives a slight dewy glow without being shiny or shimmery. I’m sure there are other powders that are similar and cheaper but I find this one goes on so smoothly and I love it!

I really hoped that this product would have been good for me but unfortunately it wasn’t. Upon first glance, it looks like any other powder and swatches nicely; that is until you try to pick up any product with a brush. That was my only issue with this product. I’ve had AMAZING luck with Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders and that’s what I was hoping for with this product. I had to take it back.

Beautiful subtle glow, non drying finishing powder. Easy to apply, use different brushes for desired look. All skin types as this powder doesn't dry or irritate sensitive skins . Range of colors . I really enjoy and use this frequently. Highly recommended

Currently one of my favorite #settingpowders! I use my translucent setting powder to bake and set, and then go back on top with this powder to add color and a healthy glow to my face. I'm usually a medium tan skin tone but bought the lightest color to brighten up my face. This plays well with other products too.

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.
