La Mer 'The Powder'
This is the only powder I will ever use. It does not sit on the face unnaturally and blends in beautifully. When I use it alone over skincare I cannot tell I am wearing a trace of makeup - it just evens out my skin and imparts a gorgeous matte yet non-heavy finish. The jar is huge and will last forever even with daily use. I will forever purchase this powder because my oily skin absolutely loves it.
I have worn powder since the age of 14, trying various brands. I am nearly 40 and my life would have been much easier if I had found this from the start. I would tell anyone of any age that wears makeup about this powder because it is something that will change the course of your day to day. I have very fair skin and ordered the translucent shade. I have never worn foundation and a light dusting of this powder gives me a flawless matte yet underlying glow that I have never found before with any other product. The powder is very fine, very smooth and has a hint of iridescence but make no mistake it is not noticeable except when you inspect the powder in certain light. The point of this is for that photo finish light deflection so that your skin flawlessly glows. The amount of powder you get is about twice the size of most loose powders. This will easily last me for a year even with daily use. I do not have to touch up with this powder, once I put it on in the morning I am good for the day despite my combo skin. Of course if one is going to a special event in evening you may want to touch up. The large powder container comes with a velvet puff but I would suggest buying the La Mer retractable powder brush. It is wonderfully large, soft and can be loaded with powder and thrown in your bag if you should need to touch up at some point. This powder makes you feel beautiful and using it in combination with the large brush gives you that feeling of being a vintage movie star putting on make up under dressing room lights before the big show! I provided a few photos so one may get an idea of the size and the powder puff it comes with.
As a gentleman who uses make up, I love this product it is sher, matte and looks completely natural. I use this powder on top of my Armani Luminous silk fundation and I get so many compliments through out the day from people saying how healthy my skin looks. Simply amazing. Love this product!
Great powder for combination skin
I used to be a big fan of Chanel's loose powder until I find this La Mer powder. Now I am a bigger fan of La Mer powder!! It is so feather light silky texture and it blends with my skin well after words.
I have combination skin and several hours later, my make up usually start to blend with my face oil. Some powder just disappear and it makes my skin looks uneven with noticeable pores but I've never had any problem with La Mer powder. Only La Mer powder and Chanel's are comparable powder for my combination skin.
It gives light coverage and my skin doesn't look tired when I remove make up in the evening. I think I am done with loose powder search!
