Lorac Translucent Touch Up Powder

My usual color in Lorac Translucent Touch Up Powder is actually TL 2, the light-medium option. However, the one you see here is TL 2.5, and I got it because it provides a little extra support and coverage when using a tinted moisturizer (see yesterday's post).

Lorac's translucent powder is very fine and light. It's not drying at all, so I can't comment on how it will perform if you have oily skin. Mine is dry, but I like a polished, finished-to-perfection makeup look, and Lorac's powder is one of few products that give this result without messing up the delicate balance. The little velveteen puff that comes in the compact is utterly useless. If you like puffs, get a good one, but I prefer to use brushes, either a dense one that pushes powder onto the skin or a fluffy one that gives the lightest possible dusting for quick touch-ups.

Bottom Line: a makeup bag staple

Lorac Translucent Touch Up Powder ($32) is available at Sephora and Ulta, in store and online.

  1. I wish we have Lorac in czech! Its not available in local sephora:-(

  2. Wow you're wearing a 2.5? That's pretty amazing, I wear a 2.5 in this as well but I'm well, Beyonce colored!

    I've tried lots of pressed powders (theBalm's Sexy Mama, Chanel, Laura Mercier, MAC) but I keep coming back to this one. It's just GOOD.

  3. I wear a mac NC30 would I be a 2 or 2.5?
