My Thoughts:

I first got this in the “Sex on the Peach” set, because your girl can’t turn down a good deal. To be honest, I didn’t really care for the other products in the set, but I fell in love with this powder and it’s been a Holy Grail item in my kit since. With that being said, I know the company was sold to Estee Lauder and a few people have said they feel like the formula has changed since the buyout, but I haven’t noticed any difference yet. If I do, I will update this review.

Packaging: ★★★★★/5

There are tons of things I love about this packaging, from the sifter to the peach accents. For starters, the jar it comes in being clear is a win, because it’s easier to gauge when it’s time to replace the product than other powder products that don’t have clear packaging. Next, the peach detail on the lid is an adorable addition and plays well into the peach personality that the collection has in the company. Opening it, you’ll find the biggest setting powder packaging win of all, a re-sealable sifter! One of my biggest pet peeves with powder products is when they have sifters with the plastic film that you have to peel to get product out, but form there on, it’s a gamble on how much product is going to make a mess as soon as you open the jar to use it. The re-useable sifter lid is attached to the sifter itself, so you don’t have to worry about losing it and the peach imprint in it is the most adorable bonus.

On top of the sifter able to seal up your product between each use, it’s fairly easy to remove the entire sifter altogether when you run out of product, so you can repurpose the jar if you want. I always suggest using an empty, spare jar to pour new powder into, instead of the lid of that powder jar, for sanitation purposes and this makes that easy to practice that habit.

Performance/Wear: ★★★★★/5

Some people may come for me for saying this, but I’m not going say something I don’t believe in, just because I’m afraid of it offending people. With that being said, I like this powder better than the Laura Mercier Translucent powder. Both this and the Laura Mercier powder alter the color of my base, which I’m not a fan of, but it’s an easy fix by just buying a foundation shade a couple of shades lighter, that way when I set with powder, the pigment that both powders add, ends up matching my base. Before I learned that the powders did that, my face would match perfectly, until I set my foundation with powder, then it would look noticeably darker.

The main reason I like this over the LM Powder, is the overall performance. The LM Powder tends to adhere and enhance all my dry spots and fine lines, this powder doesn’t do that as much. My skin is pretty dry, so almost every powder I’ve tried will still show fine lines, but I will not pay Laura Mercier’s price tag when I’m still going to have little dry patches all over my face. This powder doesn’t do that, so it was an easy choice for me. I use to LOVE Laura Mercier’s powder because that was the best thing on the market, at the time, that worked for me, but then this product was released and I haven’t regretted the switch since.

The smell is heavenly, and I know there are a few people who aren’t the biggest fans of it, but I’d much rather have any of my makeup smell and taste (yes, it tastes nice, but please don’t be reckless enough to snack on this.) like this product than taste or smell like the general chemical smells that most makeup products have.

I love using this on my clients, because it works so well with various complexions and skin types, and everyone I use it on is blown away by how well it works and smells! We all get so used to awful quality pushed out by brands because, if we’re only given awful choices, we accept that as something we have to suffer through, but this brings joy back into the process, in my opinion. When your products don’t smell like some grimey lab or cleaning closet, it makes doing makeup fun and exciting again, like, “oh, I get to play with this product that makes me look great and smell delightful!”

For those who don’t like to go full glam, this works great to set concealer, CC cream, or just eyeshadow primer on your eyes, to create an even base. When I’m not feeling very creative or have a super busy day and don’t have time to do a full makeup routine, I will put some eyeshadow primer on my lids, apply some cc cream to my face, and use this to set both my lids and face and ta-dah!, I now look like I had more than 4 hours of sleep! Another big issue with setting powders is the flashback. Well, rest assured, this does not cause that. I think it’s because it has more of a pink tint than the traditional white tint which usually causes flashback, but I’ve tested this under all sorts of light settings when I would work on models in studio sessions and there were no signs of flashback.

Price: ★★★★★/5

Another reason I like this better than the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder is the price comparison. This jar gives you more product, for less, compared to Laura Mercier’s product that gives you 1 oz for $39.00. Now, I know I always preach quality over quantity, but I can assure you, the quality is there; the quantity difference is just a bonus. Considering the packaging is also re-useable, it just adds to the overall value of the product.

Ingredients:

Talc, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch/Zea Mays Starch, Sodium Saccharin, Fragrance, Water, Glycerin, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract/Prunus Persica Fruit Extract, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract/Ficus Carica Fruit Extract, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Benzyl Benzoate, Carmine (CI 75470), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492).

Pros:

  • Smells delightful
  • Better value than Laura Mercier’s powder
  • Longwear performance
  • Tastes nice (No one likes to taste chemicals when powder gets on their lips from setting foundation)
  • Great for all skin types
  • Doesn’t accentuate dry spots
