Most Helpful Positive Review Wonderful baking/finishing powder with 0 shine!
At 37yo, I'm very careful using powders. We all know that they tend to creep and settle into those pesky lines we all hate. I have combo skin, and at certain times of the day, I can really get quite slick. I was happy to put Lóreal INFALLIBLE Tinted Loose Setting Powder to the test.
My skin is pretty light right (I have more olive undertones) now so 612/Translucent Light Medium was a perfect shade.
The powder has a very fine consistency. It feels very nice on the face, but because of the superfine particles you really need to put in some work with a big blending brush. Otherwise it can get a bit clumpy. The work pays off though because your face in the end looks absolutely flawless and even. The powder doesn't really settle into lines either which was both a huge surprise and a gigantic plus!
I'm also very pleased with how well INFALLIBLE Tinted Loose Setting Powder controlled my mid-day shine! Not only did I not look like I ran through an oil field, I also noticed that my makeup and the powder didn't turn into that thick, goopy mess mixed with oil! (You all know that gross powder/oil/makeup slurry that goes on when you get super greasy- none of that!)
I love how the color of the powder looked great on my skin. I absolutely loathe when setting powder makes you look ghostly or another shade all together. I have experienced none of that with this.
I also really like the smooth and flawless matte finish. It really looks incredible and again doesn't feel like your wearing a cakey mask of makeup. I also really haven't noticed much flashback in pictures. Maybe a tad, but nothing that anyone else but myself (looking for issues and having to be critical for review purposes) would notice.
This is a fantastic finishing powder that does deliver on beautiful finish and shine control. You do however need to blend (brush works best for me) to get there, but the finish is definitely worth it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Good but not for Everyone
I was eager to try L'Oreal Paris Tinted Loose Setting Powder Translucent since both translucent and setting power/spray is part of my daily makeup routine. After applying CC cream I used a brush to sweep and spread the powder on my face. It provided a matte effect, minimized my imperfections and really eliminated shine.
Their Infallible line usually works with my dry skin, but after a while the powder worked against it. My cover-up looked split into parts and the color set into my dry patches, making them more noticeable. Of the 2 available shades (light-medium and medium-deep) the lighter was too dark for my very fair cool complexion. On the other hand, my girlfriend who has normal skin and a warm beige complexion tried the product and loved it. Her makeup stayed in place and there was no shine to be found. However, we both found that it gave major flash when photographed.
I would recommend L'Oreal Paris Tinted Loose Setting Powder Translucent to anyone who doesn't have extremely fair or dry skin and isn't concerned about how it shows up on camera.

LAURA MERCIER WHO?!??!
Ari from STL
This powder is AMAZINGGG!! It's so fluffy and sets my makeup beautifully! Loreal definitely needs to bring out more shades. I love that it's affordable and even has some coverage to it 🥰 YOU NEED TO TRY THIS!!
Beautyjunkie86 from Oregon
This setting powder is awesome! It's light and sets my makeup beautifully. It doesn't cake, it's easy to apply, and the color is perfect. Very easy product to use and it lasts all day. I'm super happy to have this in my makeup case.
Mel4u from New Jersey
Infallible tinted loose setting powder is lightweight and feels nice on my face. The color that I had did not go with my skin tone but did provide nice coverage.
Dkil from Brooklyn Park, MN
I received this product to try and it works well with setting your foundation. It doesn't come with a brush so you have to have your own.
Nice coverage and sets well
glamwithglasses from Conway, SC
I am loving this setting powder, it have very nice coverage and sets very well. I use it daily and it helps keep my makeup on all day, keeping my face free of shine. I definitely recommend this powder for anyone looking for a loose setting powder.
Medium is DARK
Dee from Columbia
I bought the medium thinking it would be a similar color to the medium deep fit me loose powder but it was so much darker. unless you are the color of Nyma Tang this isn't a setting powder for you. the texture is very nice though but it's way too dark for me. maybe I'll repurchase and buy the lighter color. but the medium is way too dark
Tinted Loose Setting Powder Translucent
Shiv from IL
This powder blends in easy and removes shine when you apply. One night I applied it to half my face and not the other. Underneath I was wearing Age Perfect Radiant Serum Foundation. At the end of the night my face was slightly shiny (on both sides). So I didn't notice a difference in using the powder. My face usually gets shiny from foundation so I don't wear it as much but I was hoping this could help!
Smhooper from Tunkhannock, PA
Went on smoothly and lasted all day. Seemed to help keep oiliness away and makeup set through the day.
Jenn from Pittsburgh, PA
This is a really good setting powder, it gets the job done. I don't have any complaints. It makes my make up set good and looks great.
Nice setting powder
Brinda from Louisville, KY
This setting powder provides a nice touch to set your makeup. I think I will get a lighter shade next time as the one I have is a little dark for my skin tone.
Kristen03 from Buena Park, ca
I used this setting powder to set my makeup in my t-zone and under eyes. It went on weightless. I use a damp beauty blender and push it into my skin where my makeup needs to be set. I then let it sit for about two minutes before using a brush to wipe the access away. If left my skin looking even and helped with creasing throughout the day.
Locks in makeup effortlessly
Michellem0619 from Queens, New York
I love how the L'Oréal INFALLIBLE
Tinted Loose Setting Powder locks in makeup and lasts all night. It blends in really well and comes in 2 shades. I apply this onto my skin after I've applied makeup to set it in and it works great and doesn't make my skin white. It helps prevent your skin from looking oily or shiny and I highly recommend this product.
Amazing! Better than department store powder
Tngirl from Tennessee
This is my new holy grail! Why was I paying a fortune for Laura mercies? This is better ! So fine milled not cakey and amazing ! Kept my makeup looking great and poreless all day ! I'm in love
Did not work for my skin type
Hailey93 from Jacksonville, FL
I love L'Oreal Paris makeup products and I am always excited to try new ones! I was not aware of the Infallible tinted loose setting powder but I am glad that I got to try it. Unfornately, I have really dry skin. This powder did not help with that. I was also supposed to receive this powder in shade translucent but I received medium-deep which is way too dark for my complexion even with a tan. I look forward to trying more cosmetics from L'Oreal Paris but this one did not work for me.
schutzme from Otto, NC
it's a very nice powder that blends in perfectly. Gives your skin the perfect finishing touch.
Excellent finishing powder
MJ from Colorado Springs, CO
This powder is great for taking out shininess in the t-zone area. I would highly recommend it.
Great finishing powder
cshouse86 from orlando, fl
The texture of this setting powder is perfect. Nice and light and helped to set my makeup all night. There is some fallout but nothing more than normal. Would definitely recommend
A pretty good setting powder
Billie from Washington, DC
I used the Infallible Tinted Loose Setting Powder. I needed a darker tint, but I felt it did a great job of keeping my liquid foundation in place. I also have oily skin, and I was surprised at how well it kept my oil in check throughout my work day.
Sara R from Buffalo, NY
I use my L'Oréal tinted loose setting powder after I'm done applying all my makeup, to set it. I absolutely love this powder, it works great! It gives me a flawless finish without making my face look white, like other products do. Using it keeps my makeup in place all day, especially my mascara. No more mascara marks under my eyes! I highly recommend this powder.
I love this
Nicky from AL
Perfect setting powder! Keeps my face smooth and flawless while setting my liquid foundation!
Msbueno1 from Los Angeles
I really love the complexion it gives my skin. My face looks so smooth and even gets full coverage. I love the how easy it is to apply and it lasts all day.
kmv7919 from Lansing KS
I've used this setting powder several times and it's not bad. I apply it after my foundation and I've noticed my makeup still looks good hours later. It's easy to apply and the coverage is good.
Bjdawson01 from O'Fallon, MO
This was such a great product. It wasnt really heavy it didnt make my face feel saggy and really helped set my make up. I recieved the wrong color so it was unfortunately way to dark for me but other than that it worked great!
Micljon from Kentucky
I love the feel of this product! It seems to blend well and feels very lightweight on my skin. It seems to form to my skin and not just sit on top of my skin. I was happy with the job it did.
The color I got was too dark, but I was able to use it in other ways!
I have recommended the brand and type of makeup.
