Beauty Obsession: Laura Mercier Mineral Powder

Posted on

With my shelves shaking under the weight of organic lotions and potions, I was starting to feel like my makeup bag was missing a certain earthly quality. As if by magic, Laura Mercier’s Mineral Powder appeared on my desk with promises of shimmer and long lasting coverage. So I got to work swirling, tapping and buffing the powder onto my skin (the hard work pays off I promise..) until the crushed pearl, mica, zinc and other powdered minerals were blended in over my normal foundation. It really is like a little pot of treasure, my skin has never glowed so bright! With amino acids (15 of them, I add) to banish toxins and the zinc acting as an SPF, it seems natural really is best. Available from for $35. — Monique Jessen
