Laura Mercier does not need an introduction when it comes to makeup and makeup products, the brand has been loved and trusted for decades. I have three products from the brand which have been on rotation since last few weeks and glad to share with you – Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm, and Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is a multi-tasking product which is lightweight, an essential for everyday use and for a no-makeup look. It has a sheer hint of color and the finish is natural dewy, no doubt why it is an award winner. The moisturizing formula provides a beautiful glow to the skin and is perfect for all skin types, it does not emphasize any dry areas or make my oily areas oilier. Skin looks like skin but a beautiful radiant version of it, more even toned. It can replace foundation if you are looking for a very lightweight sheer hint of color.

The tinted moisturizer stays on well for over 8 hours. The main ingredient for hydration – ‘Sodium hyaluronate hydrates and softens fine lines, dry lines. Broad Spectrum SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen plus a power-blend of antioxidant vitamins C and E help protect skin from the damaging effects of the environment.’ I have shade medium and works well for me. It applies well with fingers, sponge, and even with a makeup brush. Definitely a keeper!

Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm is a 3-in-1 lip color which provides medium to full coverage, balm level comfort, and high shine lip gloss finish. The formula is very smooth and creamy, comfortable to wear, glides on beautifully, keep the lips moisturized plus with color and shine. The lips look and feel supple and natural. The staying power is nice too. I have swatched shade Amaretto Swirl which is a Pink Beige and suitable to most of the skin tones, it is a beautiful nude shade on my lips.

Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara – is a nice mascara, but I do feel it clumps after few hours of application. It gives a nice volume to the lashes. I do like the comb applicator which has a large, firm brush that coats the lashes well with just one swipe. I have this mascara in shade black.

Laura Mercier has a new amazing blush formula called Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion which I have been testing for some time now. The new cheek color is weightless and sheer yet buildable.

Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion

Blush Colour Infusion is described as a sheer, buildable and silky-smooth cheek color that blends seamlessly with the skin for the most natural, fresh look. Pure color pigments feel weightless and apply evenly to the skin for a healthy-looking flush of color that lasts 10 hours. The formula infused with micro-fine powders, this next-generation formula can build from a diffused, sheer hint of color to a bold color statement.

It layers nicely with liquid or powder makeup as it does on bare skin. The shades range from soft neutrals to vivid pops of color, with finishes ranging from matte to a subtle sheen with hidden pearl, to suit a variety of skin tones and skin types.

Matte Shades: Rosé (matte rose pink), Chai (matte dirty rose), Ginger (matte pale nude), Strawberry(matte bright pink),  Kir Royale (matte berry wine)
Sheen Shades: Sangria (sheer plum berry), Pomegranate (sheer fuschia pink), Fresco (sheer brown nude), Peach (sheer light coral), Grapefruit (sheer red coral)

Laura Mercier’s Loose setting powder has been a part of my makeup stash as well as makeup routine for as long as I remember, it was one of the first few things I had when I got more interested into makeup and everything beauty. I still have my first jar, which you will see in pictures, broken from the corner but it is still good as new, a little bit is all I need to set my makeup and it is one of the best, never looks cakey or gives a grey cast, does not accentuate problem areas, it is just what I need on the days I wear makeup. That being said, I was so excited when I saw the ‘glow’ version of the iconic and cult product from Laura Mercier, I mean the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Glow.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Glow is described as the same iconic setting powder that comes in a glow finish. The original powder is infused with pearl pigments to lock in the look for extended wear with a healthy glow finish. It does not add weight or texture but creates a radiant finish with a touch of sheer coverage as it creates a soft-focus effect to subtly blur the fine lines and imperfections. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Glow is available in 2 shades, Translucent, and Translucent Medium Deep.

Few of the key features of the new ‘glow’ version of the powder are below:

Sets makeup for prolonged wear as it has the same base formula as the Translucent Loose Setting Powder, just that this one is infused with pearl pigments.

It helps to absorb excess oil and controls its appearance for a longer time, all day for most skin types

It has a lightweight formula that blurs the look of fine lines

It provides sheer coverage and helps bronzer, blush, and highlighter go on more smoothly and evenly

It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin types.

Laura Mercier Glow Powder Brush is the new brush launched with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Glow and helps apply the powder evenly on the face. It has a specific structure as you see in the pictures to glide on easily on the natural curves of the face. The contoured end of the brush can be used to set in the curves of the face and build glow in key areas like the cheeks, bridge of the nose and above eyebrows.

I have been using the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Glow for a few days now to set my makeup. I have the shade Translucent Medium Deep which I quite like, it is not as dark as it looks in the jar, it is quite sheer and applies beautifully on the skin without giving any coverage but does imparts a glow to the skin, blurs my problem areas, and does not emphasize the problem areas.

The finish is radiant, not oily or greasy, like the glow from within, do not confuse glow with an oily glow. The powder is very finely milled, very smooth to touch and apply, blends in effortlessly into the skin. It does not feel cakey during the day, feels like I have no powder on top. The staying power is nice, I do look dewier by the end of the day as my skin secretes its own oils and it gets mixed with all the products over it. It keeps the makeup intact for the whole day and a little is all I need. The powder brush works great with the powder, I have used it even with my other powder brushes and it works well too.

With this new Glow Powder Brush, the difference I feel is that I have more control on where to apply as to where I need the glow. I have sometimes mixed and matched with the original loose setting powder. The original being on the oily areas of my combination skin and the new ‘glow’ version above my eyebrows and cheeks. They both work perfectly together. I am really enjoying the ‘glow’ as fall is here and an extra way to feel special is always welcome. I still love and have on rotation, Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage which I reviewed a few months back here.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Glow and Laura Mercier Glow Powder Brush are already available at Sephora, Sephora.ca and will be Nordstrom, Holt Renfrew, and Saks Fifth Avenue from November 2018.
