The Radiant Dupe for the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder ($39) is the mother of all powders, the standard everyone compares setting powders to. It sets makeup to be long-lasting and creates a matte soft-focus look without the typical dryness or the cakiness that comes with powders.
I will let you in on a secret - the best way to save on setting powders is to get the mini-size version - because how many times have you used up a full-size powder? So If you want to save some money on this product, Laura Mercier came out with the mini version that sells for $23 for 0.33 oz.
But if you are looking for a more affordable and more radiant option, we recommend you try the Milani Make It Last Setting Powder ($10.99). It's also a lightweight non-cakey powder that makes the makeup stay put all day. Plus, it has these light-reflecting particles to reflect light and create a blurred luminous finish. A drug store staple in many beauty lovers' stashes!
