Rated 5 out of 5 by Veritaas Loved this for an age
When I first used mineral powder, I knew I would never look back. When I was told about Laura Mercier and used it, I really KNEW I would never look back. Smooth, non drying, lovely coverage which is amazing for my skin which is prone to redness on the cheeks! Also the color range is great and I find that I don't have to mix and match colors to fit my tone.
Use the Laura Mercier face brush (kabuki style) too

I had to check that I actually hadn't already submitted a review for this product as I've been purchasing it for so long. It really is a make must have in my opinion. The quality of the mineral powder is superb and gives gorgeous coverage which lasts all day. I love the fact that you can build it up in layers depending on the finish you are trying to achieve. I use Tender Rose as I'm naturally quite pale and this adds a little warmth to my skin without being overbearing. A 5 star product without a doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JanM Full but flattering coverage
My skin is on the oilier side of normal, I have reddened cheeks, open pores, freckles that have spread into age spots and general discolouration - my skin looks all of its 47 years.
I have tried many different mineral foundations and this is one of my favourites. I use the shade Soft Porcelain which suits my 1 shade down from the fairest of shades. The powder is pretty sheer but does cover and is buildable. I find that the pressed and the loose are pretty compatible in terms of shade but the pressed seems to have a heavier coverage for me. As with all mineral powder foundation, I find that whenever I apply I feel as if I have been too heavy handed but with warm hands pressed lightly over the face and a bit of a wait, this melds into my skin imparts a slight glow without shine - it lasts a good 5+ hours on me and does not oxidise. I think that if one has drier skin one may find this a bit drying. As with all mineral foundation, use a looser bristled brush for a lighter coverage and a denser bristled kabuki style brush for more coverage, and buff and buff and buff until your arm falls off.
