As if it couldn’t get any better, Laura Mercier just released a deeper version of their translucent powder. The makeup gods have heard our prayers! Laura Mercier’s translucent powder is a holy grail item and for good reason. It feels weightless and silky on skin, and when applied properly, it gives zero flashback.
There’s no more tumultuous relationship than that of a brown-skinned girl and translucent powders. Formulas can either be ashy or even worse, leave us with a ghostly veil in every group pic thanks to flashback. The crafty among us mix translucent powders with a tinted powder or bronzer to correct the issue but make no mistake — it. is. a hassle.
Laura Mercier describes the shade on its site, saying, “Now in two shades, to offer a translucent finish for every skin tone from the fairest to the deepest. The original translucent shade works best for fair to medium and tan skin tones while the new shade Translucent Medium Deep was designed to work best on medium deep to the very deepest skin tones, so every skin can enjoy a perfectly flawless, translucent finish.”
You can shop Laura Mercier Translucent Medium Deep Powder on their site for $38. (It’s not up on Sephora just yet.) With a name like MEDIUM Deep, we’re wondering could an even darker shade be on the way?! Fingers crossed!
