Loose setting powders 

Heeeeeeeeeey guys 🙂 I’ve been really excited to be doing this post as I believe a good setting powders makes a huge difference to your end makeup result. In this post I’ve decided to list 3 loose setting powders that I love to use for baking under eye and lightly setting the rest of the face with. I hope you guys enjoy it 🙂



Before I start I know you might all be sitting there looking at The Body Shop powder and the Bare Minerals thinking ‘my god how dark does this girl want to go’ LOL trust me when I say that it may look orangy/ pink but when applied to the skin there is no colour 🙂

  1. Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. 


Again before I get into it, I don’t think this product is all that they way people rave about it. In my personal experience it’s like a 7/10 and for the price I don’t think it’s worth it which is why I’ve only ever repurchased it once after. There’s a dupe for this but like a 8.5/10 dupe which is ‘the cornsilk loose setting powder’ and it’s only like £6 from Amazon. I would have done a review on it but I finished the pot and haven’t bought another one yet but guys the cornsilk loose setting powder is totally worth it. I’m going abit of topic so back to the Laura mercier setting powder.

The reasons why I like it:

  • No flash backs
  • Has a silky texture rather than a powdery one
  • Keeps your makeup on all day so no touch ups
  • Brightens up your under eye and the rest of the face that you have baked

The reason why I have rated it low is because it creases under my eyes a lot. A setting powder is not a setting powder if it allows creases to appear under your eye and I have to apply quiet a lot of the powder for a highlighted look and this can end up really drying my under eye
2. The Body Shop loose face powder (02)


A lot of you by now must know I am a huge fan of The Body Shop products, both skin care and make up. I don’t think they are given enough appreciation for their makeup products. In all honesty they sell high end products at affordable prices.

I love their loose setting powder soooo much…

  • Does not try the under eye area
  • Does not crease
  • Full coverage
  • No flashbacks
  • Looks super natural
  • Works amazing for both oily skin and dry
  • A little powder goes along way
  • Has a really nice buttery soft texture
  • The colour is just right
  • A range of shades to chose from

3. Bare Mineral perfect light mineral viel


The Bare Mineral loose setting powder reminds me a lot of the YSL soufflé d’Eclat loose powder due to its beautiful pearly finish.

  • Medium to full coverage -buildable
  • Does not crease
  • No flash backs
  • It’s blurs imperfections
  • Gives of a really fresh and awake look
  • Flawless finish
  • Lightweight
