The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is an iconic product within the beauty community, and has won awards it’s so popular. It’s essentially a loose setting powder which you can use to obviously set your makeup, or use it for baking your makeup too.
A few months ago Laura Mercier launched a new version of their popular powder, a more luminous version for those that prefer a glowy look to their makeup rather than matte; the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow.
The Laura Mercier Powder is £30, but W7 have just launched a potential dupe; the W7 Gotta Glow Translucent Luminous Setting Powder, and it’s just £5.95.
W7 Gotta Glow Translucent Luminous Setting Powder
The W7 Gotta Glow Translucent Luminous Setting Powder is infused with micro-fine pearls to create a healthy, radiant glow. Offering a soft focus finish that blurs the appearance of fine lines and imperfections, as well as extending the wear of most foundations.
The W7 Gotta Glow Translucent Luminous Setting Powder is £5.95 and contains 15 grams of product. The Laura Mercier powder contains 29 grams, so you obviously get nearly double the amount of product but the price is almost £25 more expensive.
The Laura Mercier version is available in two shades; Translucent and Medium Deep, but this W7 powder is available in just one shade; Translucent. In the stock images, the W7 powder does look quite deep in colour, but it does claim to be completely translucent.
As far as budget loose powders go, the packaging on this W7 powder is really sleek. With a large, circular jar with a clear base so you can see how much product you have left, a rose gold metallic lid and a sifter for dispensing the powder.
You don’t get an applicator or puff in either powder. The packaging design also reminds us of the Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder too, with the same metallic lid and jar shape / design. But for £5.95 it’s a great price for a setting powder, and the packaging is a lot more sleek than the Revolution Loose Baking Powders.
