The Holy Grail of Loose Setting Powders Just Added a Much-Needed Shade featured image

If setting powder is your thing, you’re probably already familiar with the holy grail of all loose setting powders. Sure, there are others, but the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder has earned its longstanding reputation. It has made it on countless must-have lists by the pros, beauty bloggers and just about anyone who wants a flawless finish. Although it’s translucent (and super lightweight), the sheer finish shouldn’t show up on your skin, but that’s not the case for everyone, especially if you have a deeper skin tone. The original translucent formula (best for fair to medium/tan) can leave a white, ghostly layer on darker skin.

Now, the brand has just added a new translucent shade of its cult-favorite powder for medium-to-dark skin tones. For women with darker complexions who prefer a natural-looking finish, the medium-to-deep shade was created so that every skin tone could achieve the same undetectable, mattifying effects as the original. We can’t help but applaud the brand for creating a more diverse shade range and meeting a real need in the industry. More of this please!
