Setting the Base: No7 Perfect Light Loose Powder | Review

Hello, my Loves!

Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of a flawless dewy base, but when it comes to making a flawless dewy coverage stay all day, for me it’s impossible! I have tried a range of different face powders over the years, from MUA to Benefit, and all of them have either had an orange tinge or made my face look cakey. That was until I discovered the  No7 Perfect Light Loose Powder in the shade translucent, which is said to be a dupe for the Laura Mercier Setting Powder.


First of all, for a drugstore price, you get quite a lot of product and a little definitely goes a long way, which when you are a student you are very appreciative of. It’s also in stunning sleek packaging, with a pewter lid it’s one of those items that can most certainly be displayed on your dressing table.

I apply the powder to my t-zone, nose and under my eyes using the Real Techniques Multi-Tasking Brush, to which these are the areas I find tend to be the oiliest, and where my base tends to disappear during the day, and the powder immediately sets these areas without changing the colour of my base or looking cakey. I will most defiantly be repurchasing!


RRP: £10.50

Thank-you for reading

 lots of love
