Laura Mercier Translucent Pressed Setting Powder

Hi loves!!!!

My skin has been so problematic over the last few months. I have no idea what’s happening! I think I’ve been experimenting a bit too which with new products and my skin isn’t having it. 

Back in October, I bought the Laura Mercier pressed powder for my trip to Florida. I have used the loose powder version for years so I figured I would be the pressed powder for travel. (I hate a mess!) I had no idea the pressed and loose versions would be so different from one another! 

Looking back at my Florida photos, I can notice a white cast over on my face. The loose version leaves no residue or flashback! Ugh. So disappointing. I also used the powder for two weeks straight after Christmas break and I noticed I had really bad clogged pores and breakouts. It’s safe to say I won’t be repurchasing this in the future! 

What’s the take away?

1. The pressed and loose version of the same product can be polar opposites. Just because one works for you, that doesn’t mean the other will. 

2. Don’t buy new makeup and try it out on the day of an important event or major trip! Try the new product out BEFORE you leave and take a few test photos! Flashback is not cute!

3. Introduce new products one by one so you know which products are causing the breakouts. Trying 3 new products at once isn’t a good idea because it’s harder to track down the troublemaker! 

That’s it for me! Have a lovely week!
