I really am a sucker for nice packaging and Laura Mercier never fail to impress on that front, simple brown plastic with silver lettering. The compact does feel a lot sturdier than cheaper version.
When swatched the powder does look very white but when blended into the skin it doesn't look like you are wearing powder at all. The product is so finely milled that is disappears onto the skin whilst still controlling oil throughout the day and keeping my make-up in place. I've found that it definitely helps prolong the longevity of my face make-up and feels so light on the skin like i'm not wearing powder.
It is not the cheapest of powders out there but i've been so impressed with it I seriously would consider repurchasing it. I've been using it everyday since the start of September I have hit pan on it but there is still lots of product left.
Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder retails for £24.50.
