I wouldn't see why not. It will give you a very light veil of powder on your face. I wear this alone sometimes to get rid of shine when I do not want to wear foundation and just wear it over regular moisturizer.

Question
Mineral Finishing Powder
Dos the Mineral Finishing Powder have a glimmer or sparkle to it? I just bought the Loose Setting Powder in Stardust and it is quite shimmery, giving a glittery effect to the face. I want to try the mineral type powder in transluscent and need to know if it has the same shimmer? I'm hoping it doesn't.

There is no sparkle to the mineral makeup or the finishing powder I bought. Being older, I like it that way.

That's one thing I really like about this product: it does NOT have a sparkle or any kind of shine. It acts as a "diffuser" of flaws. I love it!

No shimmer what so ever, just translucent. Works well with any of my foundations without having any glimmer to it.

You'll be whatever shade you put on before this powder. This is purely a finishing powder that blends and sets your foundation and blush to last you all day. I find it can last a long day at work and through the night if I go out.

Stick to the translucent powder. I use sand for my tinted moisturizer as well and the translucent finishing powder works well. I believe they offer one with a peachy-pink color and that gave my face a flush look (like I just took a quick jog around the room!).

No it doesn't have SPF in it. The key word to find in the ingredients to any mineral make up is Zinc Oxide. If it has that then it is a natural SPF. The mineral foundation does include Zinc Oxide with an SPF of 15. So if you used this over your Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation you would have some sun protection.

It does not contain an SPF to my knowledge. Typically products that contain an SPF are clearly advertised as this is a specific benefit some buyers look for. However if you are using the LM Mineral Foundation that has an SPF of 15. I can honestly say that I have used dozens of foundations in my lifetime. Once I switched over to Laura Mercier I stuck with it and never looked around for another. I get endless compliments on my skin and many ask what product I use. It is that amazing if you use it correctly.

Big enough to last 3 months if you only use one to two times a day and use lightly as suggested.

If used properly (reccomended w/ a Fan Brush, other brushes apply too much of the product), it can last over a year. I have a Fan Brush, use it daily, and sometimes in the afternoon as an oil blotter -- and I've had it 6 months and not even half through it

I have oily and acne prone skin as well. Any face powder with titanium dioxide , talc drives my skin crazy. There you go acne. I am happy with Chantecaille's loose powder, now. It stays all day and no acne! It also got 4.4/5 in MUA.

I too have oily skin (Im 26...). And I use this LAST, and it works great!! I have a glowy, yet matte finish ALL day long. Sometimes, late afternoon -- apply a bit more just to absorb any oil, and it works amazing. HOWEVER, the ONLY brush that I would suggest for this product is a FAN BRUSH -- NOT A BLUSH, POWDER, OR ANYOTHER BRUSH!! This is a finishing product, and should be used sparsely, with gently strokes, perhaps an extra stoke on the T Zone. If you use too much of it, it will look cakey, and cause you to look more pale. Any other brush besides a Fan Brush wont allow this product to give its desired effect. Laura Mercier makes one for about $30 -- however, other brands make them cheaper as well.

It is very light so I'm not sure it would be as good for super oily skin. You'd probably want to try Bare Minerals...they have a Matte mineral veil you could try.

General questions
How long is the staying power of this powder? Does it improve the appearance of the complexion? I'm not a huge powder user, I just want something to set my (face) concealer with to make the concealer last longer.

I work at a spa running around on my feet, getting sweaty, and dealing with wet towels all day. This powder sets my face and stays through a long day at the spa and it continues to last till I take it off at night. I LOVE this stuff.

It is .42 oz which is the same size as the foundation if you have that. The finishing powder only takes just a little bit so it should last quiet a while.
