Compact Powders

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for Compact Powders.

Compact powders are one of the most popular types of facial powders. They're small enough to fit in a purse or pocket, and they can be used on all parts of the face. They're also easy to use and can be found in a range of colors. Compact powders are a great choice for those who want to create a smooth, even complexion. They can be used to set makeup, reduce shine, and add a hint of color. Here are some of our favorites available on the market today.

Laura MercierMatte Radiance Baked Powder Compact

I'm addicted to Laura Mercier products - especially foundations and powders. I picked this matte radiance compact up to add some summer highlights with my bronze contrasting. ...This highlighting powder is well worth the price. I love the baked consistency- much less messy than the loose shimmer/highlight powders.

What it is:
An ultrasmooth baked face powder that provides natural color with soft matte radiance.

What it does:
Wake up the skin, and provide natural color with a radiant, healthy glow for a flawless, no-makeup look. Sheer, buildable coverage lets you customize your glow, while the modern, multidimensional matte finish imparts a hint of soft luminosity. The bronze shades provide a neutral warmth in varying intensities. The ultralightweight formula feels weightless on skin and applies smoothly and blends effortlessly. The smooth, silky, velvety texture feels comfortable, while the long-wearing formula lasts up to eight hours and stays color-true without oxidizing for an even wear. Each tile is hand-mixed with a unique design.

Very creamy and easy to blend-exactly like their blushes. The refill powder comes with a plastic protector so you don’t need the clutch....Finishing powder is 5/5...The component is so flimsy that the powder flew out of the compact. I knew it was not going to be luxe, but it’s actually flimsy.

What Else You Need to Know: This refillable pressed powder can be worn alone for a luminous complexion, on top of your foundation as a finishing powder, or as a bronzer. It can be personalized by plugging a Mini Rosso Lipstick (sold separately) into the compact and using the removable chain to carry the compact cross-body.
