Who wouldn’t want a powder that’s perfect for all skin tones? This would be most appreciated by makeup artists, I know! Or whenever you get a tan, you wouldn’t have to buy a darker shade of powder. Yay! Mary Kay introduced a translucent loose powder that’s invisibly sheer and provides a skin perfecting finish. How is it? Here is my Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder review.


Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Product Information

Because it’s translucent, this powder is the perfect match for any skin tone – from very fair to dark. It sets foundation for a sheer, invisible finish and has light-scattering properties designed to help soften the appearance of imperfections. The powder feels weightless, natural and velvety soft on skin and is suitable for all skin types. The long-wearing formula keeps makeup looking fresh throughout the day, controlling unwanted shine. Wear it over your favorite Mary Kay® liquid or cream foundation as a finishing touch or by itself for a naturally beautiful look.


I love Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder because…

  • I can open and close the tiny holes of the container to avoid mess.


  • it has very tiny shimmer that reflects light, which gives that flawless appearance.
  • it doesn’t feel heavy.
  • it works for all skin tones.
  • it doesn’t look ashy nor too white, just don’t apply too much.
  • I didn’t breakout or experience allergic reactions or irritations.
  • it’s not super matte. Skin doesn’t look dry.
  • it’s fragrance-free.
  • it can somehow control oil. With my oily skin, I still need to retouch after 2 to 3 hours, of course.

I wish Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder…

  • doesn’t have the tendency to be too white. It’s transparent but it can appear white in photos when piled up too much.
  • is easy to bring. Although it has genius packaging to prevent the loose powder from scattering, of course compact pressed powder is still more ideal for travel or for retouch.
  • can be bought anywhere.

Tips on Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder

  • If you have oily skin, make sure to apply a good oil control primer.
  • Pour small amount of loose power on the cover and swirl your powder brush. Tap off excess before buffing around your face.
  • Do not apply too much as it can have a tendency to have white cast on photos.

Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Verdict

I’m not a huge fan of loose powder because it can be messy to apply. I only use it at home to set my bb cream or foundation, then use a pressed powder for retouch. This is why the first thing I noticed about Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder is its packaging. I can easily open and close the tiny holes, which keeps the powder intact even when I tote it around during makeup gigs. I also like how weightless it feels. It can appear too white in photos though, so piling up the powder is not recommended.

I recommend Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder to those who are looking for loose powder that can be used for all skin tones. For those who need a powder for retouch or travel, I’d still recommend pressed powders.
