Tinted (left) or translucent powder? A lot of beauty junkies swear by the latter for a flawless makeup that lasts all day.

So you’ve already spent 30 minutes putting on makeup before heading out the door. But how do you ensure it will last throughout the day?

Celebrity makeup artists swear by the power of translucent powder, which is used to set makeup and give you that flawless and poreless finish.

In fact, 14 out of the 20 celebrities that PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked via text message and phone call, from the period of August 21 to 28, said they have tried the translucent powder and liked its effects.

Some makeup junkies say it's even better than tinted powder! Here’s why.

1. It works on any skin tone and blends effortlessly.

2. It absorbs oil and takes away shine sans the heaviness or unpleasant texture.

3. It never looks cakey.

4. It can even subtly cover fine lines and other skin imperfections.

5. It locks in makeup for more than 12 hours.

At the recent Beauty Addict event of Rustan's the Beauty Source, PEP had the chance to visit Laura Mercier, an international cosmetics brand that carries what most beauty websites and blogs tout as the best setting powder.


Laura Mercier’s translucent loose setting powder remains its best-selling product, according to the staff.

And for PHP1,850, its website guarantees that "you'll look great in photos."

That’s one makeup must-have to include in your kikay kit!
