There are exceptions to every rule, I’m generally not a fan of talc based powders. I find it creates that halo effect (aka mime face) in photos due to the way it reflects light. I do however love Laura Mercier’s Loose Setting Powder in translucent.
Mercier is known for her ‘flawless face’ system which includes an impressive line of foundations, concealers, and powders so it’s no wonder she created a translucent powder that is completely appropriate for every skin shade and type. Regardless of the foundation applied, this powder will set it without looking chalky or too matte and ensure a days worth of coverage even on the oiliest of skins
