Some small differences but similar overall.
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!
I do not like the maybeline swap option. It’s not translucent and doesn’t feel like a translucent powder. It may set the same and what not but I really didn’t love the texture!
I use the Maybeline loose powder, it is a more affordable option to the Laura Mercier. I agree with Nitya it is very important to carefully select the correct shade with the Maybeline loose powder because of the color pigment. I will say I’ve used Laura Mercier translucent powder and I absolutely loved it. So it really depends on what you can afford at the time, I give both products a thumbs up!
I love both... but I have to go with Laura Mercier here! It’s so expensive, but definitely worth it in my opinion. Very much a game changer for setting your makeup and concealer
I have tried both & I honestly love the Maybelline way better
The Laura mercier oxides my concealer and makes me feel very cakey
Laura Mercier definitely oxidizes my concealer but it smooth in, too much can be caked. Maybelline isn’t smoothing but doesn’t oxidize my concealer either. Maybelline is good for all over the face tho!
