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've used Tarte, Too Faced, Benefit, etc and hands down Laura Mercier still has the best highlighter. It's pricey but it lasts forever and it is lightweight but with amazing pigment. I do not think there is a skin tone or eye color that could not rock this product.

This product is stunning. I've used it for a targeted subtle glow and all over the face for a dewy luminous finish. It doesn't settle in lines or pores. Gives the skin a very perfected look. I liked it so much I bought one shade darker for my mom who's also fallen in love with it and has been using it every day

I use this product as a bronzer to create a contoured effect, and it works like a dream. Application is smooth and effortless, and the powder is blendable, so it is easy to build coverage for the desired shade. I get so many compliments, and I love this product!

It lasts forever, applies well, isn't heavy on the skin, and settles nicely. I've never had it clump. My skin is sensitive and I have never had problems with this brand or product. It's pricey but worth the chunk of change. Overall, I highly recommend.

I LOVE this stuff. Its absolutely beautiful on the skin. All the glow of an Hourglass Ambient lighting power with NO shimmer. It feels so light on the face, not cakey at all. It works great to dust away bake. Only downside is I flew through mine!

This is by far my favorite overall face Powder to date. I also like the Mac Mineralized Skin Finish but i prefer this Laura Mercier one in the winter because it gives me a beautiful finish! I love it. I have a review and demo of this in my YouTube channel (AmbitionWrites)

I had really high hopes for this, I feel like I can't quite get the product on a brush. Its beautiful but definitely can't hold a candle to hourglass powders. It's a nice one for under eye. Its a Ok product. Nothing special

Amazing afterglow with this product. I definitely recommend it for combination skin. It was easy to apply and the glow remained all day. The product did not come off even when I was active all day. I highly recommend it.

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.
