Skin Tone: Fair
I received a sample of this and was excited to try it but as I've seen other reviews mention it's a bit too much on the glowy side for all over and especially for day time use. It works as a highlighter in areas or as a light base on the eye lid to give a hint of colour. Lovely texture and lightweight as per usual with Laura Mercier products but not what I was expecting.

What is this
This is gold glitter literally. I was so disappointed when I put it to set my concealer under eye and it left a gold shimmering eyeshadow look, didn’t set my makeup well or fight oil control. Honestly better off using it as a highlighter than a face powder
Skin Tone: Fair
Patchy and too gold
Oh no! This has been so disappointing as a setting powder. I love a glowy finish and figured this would be right up my alley. Unfortunately, no matter how lightly I dust it on, it clings in thick patches in some areas (half of my forehead, one cheek, and part of the end of my nose) leaving me with weird yellow-y gold spots. My skin tends towards being dry so maybe this is an issue? I've tried it with minimal skincare and with and without spf, all with the same patchy result. I tried it on my chest as a body powder, also had an issue. This also accentuates my pores in a way I've never experienced before, I have really fine pores and this is usually not an issue. I'm still on the hunt for a good, glowy setting powder....I see others have recommended this as eye shadow or highlighter which I'll have to try, otherwise this will go in the bin.
Too shimmery for overall application
I received a sample of 1g of the lighter version of the Glow Powder. I used it as a last step in the make up routine, putting it all over my face, but I am not a fan of the glowing effect. Maybe it could work as a subtle highlighter or to use it more sparsely / mix it with the regular powder, but I wouldn't use it on its own to apply all over.
Skin Tone: Very Fair
Not a fan of the glow
I have tried various translucent powders and am a fan of the original version if this but received the glow version as a sample. I am not a fan. I feel that a highlighter does this job to the high points on the face and that there is no real replacing the matifying of the original product. I was glad to been able to test it put though.
