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.

Such a prettt highlight! It does have a lot of shimmer which scared me a bit at first. However it has such a velvety texture and blended out so smoothly Leaving behind a lightweight glow. Definitely worth the price and would recommend to any of my fellow high light addicts !

This deserves 10 stars. It's my FAVOURITE finishing powder. I have one for winter and one for summer. It's comparable to bare minerals mineral foundation except that product made me so oily and the mercier product does not! It gives your skin a subtle glow with light coverage. I love it

In my opinion this sheer perfecting powder is very glittery and it's something you want to wear on a special night out or if you want to day it is a good sheer perfection powder and is pigmented and does leave your face glowing but its expensive.

With or without foundation this powder is amazing! It gives you a nice natural sheen to your skin. Not to sparkly. On natural skin doesn't give much colour, but makes me skin look fresh. I would definitely repurchased

To be fair, I think I need to use this product more. But the reason I haven't is that I haven't noticed anything extraordinary with this the 5-6 times I used it. It's either I'm expecting too much or I'm doing something wrong with the application for me not to be wowed. That's of course, if I base it on the reviews of others. I use it as a finishing powder with a large, dense brush. I sweep it lightly all over my face. I check the mirror, no change. Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder

Love it! My go to setting powder. Even on those no makeup days where all I am wearing is a bb cream and concealer underneath to have that perfected Instagram filtered skin. It's awesome on any skin type even dry. Just wish they came in more shades! Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder

Absolutely love this powder. It reminds me of the hourglass ambient lighting powders but with a much more natural shade range. It helps set makeup wouldn't being too matte. It's got a perfect glow without being too sparkly! Would highly recommend to anyone who likes a glowy look

I use this as a setting powder or just lightly for my no make up days. I find it comparable to the Hourglass cosmetics ambient light line that they have, but for a much better price point. You don't need a lot of it, but it provides a nice subtle glow from within look. I'm satisfied with this purchase and I do recommend it!

It’s undeniably its strong point: the finish is soft and luminous, like silk on the skin. And that, without any shimmery or glittery particles in it. It leaves the velvety effect of a powder, but it also has a soft, luminous finish, as if the skin was glowing from within. I absolutely love this finish!

Laura mercier,uma marca que eu amo,perfeita para pele madura,aplique sempre após uma camada de base média e não se preocupe com a matificação pois ela deixa apele impecável,valoriza demais as áreas mais densas e que mais marcam
Como as olheiras.amo demais o produto

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.
