Translucent Medium Deep

Laura Mercier Translucent Medium Deep Loose Setting Powder Glow ($38.00 for 1.00 oz.) is a soft, medium-tan with warm undertones and a medium, golden sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage when applied with a powder brush and dusted all-over my face (which isn’t shown, as this shade isn’t intended for my skin tone but those deeper than I, please refer to my Translucent review for an idea of the effect of the powder all-over). It was buildable, like the lighter shade, so I applied it more heavily to show how it looks on my skin and to make it clear that this isn’t a subtly, luminous powder either.

The powder felt smooth, silky, and was very finely-milled, which made it easy to apply all-over to set my base makeup but could also be built-up to act more as a light to moderate highlighter. It sat well on my skin, but it wasn’t as blurring/smoothing compared to the original powder, which is more mattifying. The slight sheen it gave all-over was visible to my eye, which may or may not be your cup of tea. If you’re someone who tends to like a dewy, very glowy base, then it might be a good fit. I found this powder worked better to complement the more mattifying original powder. It extended the wear of my base products by two to four hours, depending on the formula, environmental conditions, and how heavy (or sheer) the application of. I would say it typically made my base wear well for between 10 and 14 hours.

Formula Overview

$38.00/1.00 oz. - $38.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to give a "glow finish" while setting makeup for "up to 12 hours" in two shades--Translucent and Medium Deep. It is described as having "sheer coverage" that "blur the look of fine lines and imperfections." The powders have a silky, finely-milled quality and are sheer but neither is colorless, and I noticed that the Translucent darkened my foundation about half a shade overall (I'm about light to light-medium). Both shades deposit a soft, barely-there shimmer, but it's somewhat visible close-up, so they result in a good deal of luminosity when applied all-over. I found that I preferred the look of the original Loose Setting Powder for most of my face and using the Glow version on strategic areas for a candlelit glow as the original formula gave my skin a smoother, more pore-less finish than the Glow version.

The powder did help extend the wear of my foundation, and I'd agree that it definitely kept my foundation looking fresh for between 10 and 14 hours, depending on environment, formula, and how much foundation I applied (or didn't apply). In general, I would recommend this powder only for someone who likes a very dewy finish, doesn't mind visible pearl/sheen on the skin, and is light-medium or deeper (or doesn't mind a warming powder if one is fairer).

Translucent

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow ($38.00 for 1.00 oz.) is a pale, yellowed powder with a golden sheen. It had sheer coverage when dusted all over my face (as a setting powder), but it had enough shimmer and was buildable that I was able to apply it as a highlighter on my cheekbones, just to give you a better idea of how much of a sheen this can add to the skin.

The powder was finely-milled and silky to the touch, which helped it apply all-over my face to set my base. Depending on the formula, how much of that formula I applied, and what I did that day, the wear ranged between 10 and 14 hours of solid wear out of my base (as compared to 7 to 12 hours without). I did not find that it was as good as smoothing on my skin’s natural texture and pores as the original Loose Setting Powder (which I love), but it did sit well on my skin and did not make my foundations appear cakey.

It yielded a noticeable sheen wherever I applied it; not really a subtle glow but light to moderate with faintly visible pearl if I looked closely, which I know can be a deal-breaker for some. I preferred using the Glow powder on the high points of my face and underneath my eyes but preferred the original for the rest of my face.

Medium (4)

Charlotte Tilbury Medium (4) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 30.00 oz.) is a light-medium beige with warm, golden undertones and a luminous sheen. This was the least warm-toned shade that I’ve swatched within the formula, so I could see it being more versatile across undertones as a result. The texture was smooth, lightweight, thin, and fluid without being watery (more like a cross between water and gel), which helped it blend well with moisturizer, primer, or foundation or be spread across larger areas (like all over the face). The doe-foot applicator made getting just a touch out easier for highlighting the high points of the face, though it was less useful for getting product for mixing in.

It worked well all-over the skin for a dewier finish that paired well with buildable coverage foundation (full coverage often covered the effect too much), strategically applied to high points of the face (either before or after foundation), and as a primer to help base products go on more smoothly. As a standalone highlighter, this shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours.

Formula Overview

$44.00/1.00 oz. - $44.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "customizable complexion booster" that can be used as a primer, highlighter, or mixed with base products. The line includes seven shades, like a more typical foundation or concealer range, but they have sheerer coverage and fine pearl, so there is some flexibility, though for added luminosity (but not altering color) all-over, one would want to choose a shade closer to their actual skin tone.

It has a jumbo-sized, doe-foot applicator, which I preferred for spot highlighting and priming but isn't as functional for mixing in with base products (compared to a pump). I find that the lighter shades look very similar when mixed with foundation or layered under it (I'm wearing Fair mixed with my foundation here).

Tan (5)

Charlotte Tilbury Tan (5) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a medium yellow with a warm, golden sheen and strong, warm undertones. I’d consider the shade to be more on the “medium” to “medium-tan” side of the spectrum over “tan.” It’s a very flexible and versatile product, though, so when sheered out and spread across the skin for all-over priming or mixed in with base products, it will definitely stretch across more skin tones. It should add some warmth, though it may be far too yellow for some complexions. I wish it was a bit more neutral or slightly rosier compared to the color for greater versatility across undertones.

I’m light to light-medium, and I can get away with wearing it as a targeted highlighter, which adds slight warmth, or sheered out along the perimeter of my face for a slightly bronzed, warmed-up effect. The consistency is thin, gel-like, and smooth with a lightweight feel that spread well across my skin, mixed nicely with moisturizer and foundation, and worked well patted on top of skin (bare or with foundation) as a standalone highlighter.

It’ll be key to pick a foundation without full coverage if you want to layer this product underneath it or else the foundation will cover the majority of the effect (if using full coverage, I’d recommend mixing it in with the foundation or applying in top, as it’s still drying, and gently dabbing and blending on high points).

For me, it wore well for eight and a half hours on my cheeks as a standalone highlighter. As a primer, it helped my makeup go on more smoothly and gave the end result a dewier, more luminous finish (but not oily); it didn’t lengthen or shorten the wear (but didn’t claim to lengthen).

Light/Medium (3)

Charlotte Tilbury Light/Medium (3) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, orange-leaning gold with warm undertones and a luminous, glowing sheen. This shade definitely had more depth than Fair or Light (both of which were more close in depth), so for all-over use and mixing, it should be most appropriate for light to medium skin tones. I’m light to light-medium, and it warmed up my natural skin tone but not in a way that felt like I had just self-tanned, so I could get away with using this shade all-over for a slightly warmer look overall.

As a standalone highlighter, it gave a dewy, luminous sheen that was a pinch warm but not orange against my skin tone, which I was happy to see as the swatch had me concerned! The texture was smooth, lightweight, and spreadable with a thinner, gel-like feel that was emollient enough to slide well over skin but absorbed quickly and mixed well with moisturizer and foundation without significantly altering their texture or application. It applied well over my bare skin as well as patted on top of foundation. For more targeted application, I like using my fingertips, as I just find I get the best blend and least chance of movement in base products (in general, across liquid and cream formulations).

I also liked taking this particular shade along the perimeter of my face (like a bronzer), diffusing with fingertips or a lightly dampened sponge, and then layering foundation. It’ll be key to pick a foundation without full coverage if you want to layer this product underneath it or else the foundation will cover the majority of the effect (if using full coverage, I’d recommend mixing it in with the foundation or applying in top, as it’s still drying, and gently dabbing and blending on high points).

It wore well for eight and a half hours well as a standalone highlighter, and as a primer, it didn’t extend the wear that I could tell, but it didn’t shorten the wear either and definitely made my skin appear a bit smoother and glowier, just as it was marketed to do as a primer.

Tan/Dark (6)

Charlotte Tilbury Tan/Dark (6) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous, dewy sheen. Again, I’d classify it more as medium deep to tan, and there’s one deeper shade (that I don’t have) in the range. Because the formula is sheerer and designed to be mixed in or spread across a larger area (as a primer) as well as a highlighter, each shade stretches further across skin tones, but the color is undeniably warm and likely will read almost orange on cooler complexions.

It had the same fluid, lightweight, thinner gel-like texture as the other shades in the range, and the same buildable coverage that went from sheer to medium depending on application and placement. I applied it as a standalone highlighter, and it was more like a luminous bronzer (though it ran a bit orange for my preference), and it was a bit too dark for me to mix in with my moisturizer or foundation (which is as expected, since the shade range is designed to correspond with foundation matches). If this was an actual foundation, I wouldn’t have tested the shade, but since it can be used as a highlighter as well, I did want to give it a good try.

It wore well for eight and a half hours as a standalone highlighter, and it applied well over bare skin or layered on top of foundation. As a primer, it helped my base apply more evenly and gave a softly luminous finish (along with noticeable depth and warmth, which wouldn’t be apparent for a medium to tan skin tone). It didn’t extend nor shorten the wear of my base when I used it as a primer or mixed in with foundation, though it did not claim to improve longevity.
