I have a medium skintone with yellow undertones and shade 6 is a good match for me. This powder foundation comes with a sponge, but I only apply it with a brush. It's easy to apply and goes on smooth. For me, this provides light to medium coverage and is buildable without getting cakey/dry looking. This lasts all day for me with or without a primer. It's also a perfect base for applying other creams/powders (ie. blush, bronzer, highlight). I have pretty sensitive skin, but I have no issues wearing this all day -- no breakouts, rashes, or oil buildup. Highly recommend this foundation!

I used this always when I was at Uni. Seemed very simple, quick and easy to apply at the time. I love all of Laura Mercier’s packaging and this wasn’t different to it. The coverage was not very heavy and full. It gives one a smooth and light finish. I had quite deep scarring from acne at that time and this product tried to cover it to a certain extent. But when used along with my all time favourite #secretcamouflage it does wonders!!!
Unfortunately I dont use it anymore as I started to prefer liquid foundations over powder.

I have used this compact for years and I still love it! It’s one of those products that I’m constantly purchasing as soon as I see a little bit of the pan. Sometimes if my skin is looking decent and that it doesn’t need CRAZY coverage, I use a moisturizer and just lay a bit of this stuff on and bam, my skin is absolutely flawless!

This product makes your skin look flawless. It smoothes out your pores effortlessly. The powder is finely milled and glides on to the skin. The packaging is okay I don’t like the sponge it comes with just because I don’t use them ever but other than that I have no complaints about this powder foundation. It’s amazing!

The amount of colors this product comes in is crazy. There is a color for everyone. I loved the fact that it can be put on dry or wet. It feels like I wasn’t even wearing this on my skin super lightweight formula. I have really dry skin and it seemed to apply patchy even with moisturizer on. It didn’t seem to last very long during the day it also oxidized very fast.

Review for: 5W1 14 - Medium to Deep with Warm Undertones more...
I typically don’t use foundation powder, or Laura Mercier products. However, I really like the light weight feeling of this powder and it lasts all day on my face (no matter what temperature it is outside, which is important for the summer time!). I highly recommend this product!

This has been my go to foundation for years! It is all I use. You can just use a brush and get great coverage or get a sponge wet for more of a liquid foundation look. It is matte which I love for all day use. It doesn’t turn your face white in pictures. It doesn’t make you breakout. I even workout in it. Only downside is it can crack easily. I have cracked many of mine before. So make sure if you are traveling with it put it in a safe compartment. It will be your new favorite foundation! I have turned many friends into it with all different skin types and tones!

Review for: Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder more...
I love this powder! I use it to set my makeup. It is lightweight and a good amount of coverage. The color matches well for me. I wear shade 10. The only issue I have with this product is that I hit the pan way too quick. I have to purchase this about every 3 months. For powder that I use to just set my foundation with (not as my foundation), this powder should last longer. Powders I've used in the past have lasted me longer. For the very steep price, we should be getting more product! I am in the process of trying to switch and find some cheaper alternatives.

Unfortunately this wasn’t my favorite powder at all.. I wanted to love this cause I love Laura Mercier products, unfortunately this was a fail for me.. I’m combination/oily skin, and I love coverage .. this just didn’t lay well on my skin . I used a fluffy brush to apply over my liquid foundation. It didn’t look smooth and matte . It accentuated my texture , pores/pimples.. I wouldn’t repurchase!

Just bought this powder. Anyone with dry skin want to share their experience? Is it too powdery or dry looking on the skin?

How well does this product cover & stay on oily skin? I use Smashbox powder foundation with a brush and it's almost perfect but not quite. I'm super fair & super oily so by the end of the day I'm blotting & I also have to be careful I don't get heavy handed. I've been eyeballing this Laura Mercier at Sephora but scared to make the change & hate it.
