Some small differences but similar overall.
*According to Cruelty-Free Kitty, Laura Mercier would be cruelty-free, but its parent company Shiseido, is not cruelty-free. Maybelline is NOT cruelty-free. Makeup Maven, Nitya, says: Laura Mercier is $39/ ounce and Maybelline is $8. Although Maybelline advertises this as a finishing powder, I think it is more effective as a setting powder and an excellent dupe for Laura Mercier's translucent setting powder. There are some differences, Maybelline is not translucent and comes in 8 shades so it does give off some pigment so you will need to be careful with what shade you use. Laura Mercier comes in 2 shades - original and deep for darker skin tones. But both were highly effective in setting makeup and keeping under concealer from creasing with no flashback. I would recommend trying out Maybelline!
I actually much prefer the Maybelline powder to Laura Mercier! I found that LM made me cakey and overly dry on my under eyes. I switched to Maybelline’s after trying a bunch of other pricey powders and this one is the best of the bunch!
I love this setting powder so Much. It’s a game changer
The Maybeline powder is absolutely wonderful! Didn’t have to touch up one time in my 9 hour work day and with no shine. That’s amazing since my skin is pretty oily.
I have tried many expensive brands of make ups during many years but recently I was just curious about this Fit Me I saw at Walgreens and bought one of the 8 shades they have and what a nice surprise when I applied it on my face ... I really love it ! I got the right shade from the beginning. I highly recommend this product cheaper than Laura Mercier for sure!
Maybeline loose powder is horrible!!!! Leaves me super oily like 30 minutes after I put it on.
The Fit Me powder is one of my favorites but is in no way a dupe for Laura Mercier. I prefer the Fit Me powder but also use the Laura. Never in the same way.
i have textured oily skin. the maybelline powder works flawless when i lightly set under my eyes + oily areas but oddly it cakes me up whenever i try to bake or add more powder for additional coverage. i don’t have any caking issue with laura mercier’s powder. love them both though :)
After I lost all my makeup in a fire this was the first product I replaced in my kit and I need to get another after a year of regular use. No need to get a fancy powder if you use this bad boy.
I love this maybelline powder, literally use it every day. But absolutely not, it is no dupe to LM. If I had the money, I would continue to use LM.
It’s good but you have to use it properly or it won’t look good.
I think Maybelline is great but definitely not a dupe for Laura Mercier. I do agree that you have to use it properly or it won’t look good. I struggle setting my makeup with maybelline powder unlike with Laura Mercier because it thicker and has more pigment, but it does set the makeup in place. A little goes a long way!
