Coty Airspun in Translucent
I will start off by saying that I have tried many translucent powders and everywhere you look it always comes down to the these two. The Coty Airspun is really great if you are on a budget and need a translucent powder that is good. It has a slight pink tone to it and will lighten your foundation a bit. I have a olive skin tone and would use it all over the face since I have oily skin, but did notice a slight change in color. It does help keep you matte all day. If your skin does have pink undertones this would be great for you. It looks very smooth on the skin and does control the creasing under the eyes.
Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
I will start off by saying that I did hesitate to buy this for a while because of the price. However, I found that every other powder would change the color or my foundation and I would not be happy. I finally went for it and it was the best decision because it does not change the color of my foundation at all. It has a yellow tint compared to the Coty Airspun and has a smoother texture. It looks flawless all over the face and under the eye.
I Apply it with a beauty blender and I then continue to press into my skin. I never go in with a brush to dust it off unless i applied an excessive amount. Great for baking too. All in all, I would say buy the Laura Mercier if you have the extra cash because it is better in my opinion. I hope this helps! 🙂
