Label Challenge: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder


How sharp are your formulating skills? Find out, with this week's Label Challenge.

Each Monday, we post a product ingredient disclosure to our social media pages (LinkedIn and Facebook) and you guess the product/product type in the comments. Answers are published here and shared through our Friday newsletters—and include a shoutout to the winners.

This Week's Answer

Laura Mercier's Translucent Loose Setting Powder is a lightweight, easy-to-apply, loose powder said to blend effortlessly to set makeup for up to 16 hr of wear.

This powder locks in makeup without adding weight or texture. It absorbs oil and reduces shine all day to create a matte finish with no flashback in photos. The translucent shades work on all skin tones and create a soft-focus effect and subtly blur fine lines and imperfections.

Ingredients: Talc, Magnesium Myristate, Nylon-12, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, EthylhexylPalmitate, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Methylparaben, Lauroyl Lysine, Propylparaben, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Butylparaben, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Glycine.
