Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, Oxidization!

May 30th 2019

I’ve been in need of a good setting powder to hold my makeup in place and combat a bit of shine. I did my due diligence researching this product, reading online reviews, perusing blog posts, and watching top-rated beauty vloggers reviews. After doing this homework, I decided to make the purchase because it seemed like a sure-thing. While this product does perform as it claims--sets makeup, matte finish, soft-focus effect--it does, however, introduce a problem that cancels out its benefits. What is the problem? Oxidization! After about twenty to twenty-five minutes of wear, it turned my makeup red-orange. This may not be a problem for those who have deep skin with red undertones, but I don't.
