Okay so this post may be a bit touchy but, whatever, right? Anyone that has been in the makeup world for a while or has had their makeup done by professionals over the years can tell you that the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder is the standard. For some magical reason, it seems that no matter how good you are at doing your makeup, this translucent setting powder takes your beauty game to the next level. Even if you did not know what it was, you’ve seen the container. It seems that when you buy this powder, it lasts forever. Here’s a photo of it:
Yes. There she is ↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑ The magical, unicorn dandruff called Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. Sigh…….
Well, what you are also likely to know, or after you take a trip to stores that carry this voodoo in a plastic container, is that its expensive too! Weighing into your purse at a whooping $38.00, it has been often discussed on which products are the valid dupes, saving us poor makeup geeks a few 💸💰 Here are the possibilities out there:
Yes, can we stand up and give Dermablend a round of applause please? According to Ulta’s website Here are the results:
I have not used Dermablend’s setting powder before but its used quite often by some of my favorite makeup YouTubers. They pray to this stuff ✨
With over 81% of its users recommending it, the NYX Matte Setting Powder is a well-known product. But a Laura Mercier dupe? Those are big shoes to fill.
While being a well-known and loved product, I am not surprised that people are calling E.L.F. a justified dupe for Laura Mercier’s setting powder. One thing I can agree with the review of this setting powder is that its probably the messiest.
What’s your favorite setting powder dupe to Laura Mercier’s Translucent Setting Powder? Do you even think there is one, or should we just spend the coin and get the original. Leave a comment and let us know 🙂
So one of my Instagram followers suggested that I attempt to do an unboxing via ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). Without getting too technical, this is the process of, when used on video, used to ‘massage’ your brain. So your get this mental massage through a series of ‘triggers’ like nail-tapping, the sound of brushing hair, whispering, etc. Well, trying to do it was so FUNNY for me!!!! Despite the fact that I failed at it miserably, I think I’ll do it again in the future…only because it was fun and a loyal subscriber requested it. Enjoy watching me being silly 😎
So one of the many beautiful things about living in Louisiana is the ability to have a good time without planning it. This weekend marked the end of the 2018 JazzFest and the 300th Anniversary of the city of New Orleans. While the tickets to such an event may not seem reasonable, having access to stage acts from Anita Baker to Aerosmith makes it worth the wild!
So I didn’t see Aerosmith or Ms. Baker, but I did witness the legendary hiphop master LL Cool J rock the golden mic on JazzFest Congo Square Stage 🔥🔥🔥🔥 Here’s my backstage view:
While spending some time in New Orleans, I decided to take in some of the views I’ve grown up with and share it with you. Being from this great state, I missed it tremendously while I was in the U.S. Army. When I moved to New York, I would make sure I took a vacation to come back around this time of the year. Here’s some photos so you can take in the beauty and uniqueness of the city of New Orleans, Louisiana in the French Quarter:
Who doesn’t like a fresh outfit to start off the new year? Exactly, everybody like a new set to build up their fashion, or even just to give off some new ideas. Here are a few.

So in the midst of my blogs, I had an idea. I’d been seeing videos about ways to install hair units and the ‘best’ and safe methods. Some methods only last a day, which left me a bit discouraged and seeking a longer lasting method to safely secure my hair units and without the worry.
Enter two known methods: BMB and Cling products. Let’s begin with my intro. This should be fun🎈🎈🎈
