No. 2: Laura Mercier Mineral Finishing Powder, $32TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 6.6*
Why: "I don't believe that this [powder] is the softest or most micro-milled powder in the market," which it claims, says one reader. It gives "a muddy finish" that provides "different coverage on different areas on [the] face," leaving "patches here, patches there, patches everywhere." Readers say this is "not for the more mature skin," since the "powder settles into lines and makes you age." It is a "real disappointment" because "it makes skin look cakey the way cheap stuff does," says one reader. And to top it off, "it [also] emphasizes pores."
