(VIDEO) Product Review + Demo: Laura Mercier Medium Deep Translucent Powder

Disclosure: I received this product for free from Influenster to test and share with you. All opinions expressed are my own.

Laura Mercier Cosmetics recently released a new version of their translucent powder in a medium deep shade specifically for medium deep to dark skin tones. Honestly I don’t follow makeup brands much but as and when I was notified that I’d be trying this product out, I was excited.

The Pros & Cons Of The What To Expect Pregnancy App

Can you guess one of the first things I did once the reality of being pregnant hit me?

I downloaded an app.

(Don’t judge me…it’s what millennials do, OK?)
