Perhaps this is a problem specific to me. I LOVE loose powder but finding a shade that doesn't go "orange" on my pale skin, doesn't cost a bomb and is easily accessible has been tricky.

My High Street Holy Grails once were Collection 2000 9 Light Translucent in Blue tubs (also sold under Constance Carroll brand in Brown tubs) and NYC Smooth Skin Loose Powder 741A Translucent. Both discontinued - the NYC option goes for silly money on ebay.

I've resorted to buying Coty Airspun 65g, which aren't easy to find, but their massive pots last ages. (Weird scent, but, that's another story). They're US imports from what I can tell.

Aldi may save the day! This loose powder draws comparisons to NARS from Aldi's Reviews (someone says "it's as good as No7", another compares it to MAC NC40, for Medium To Dark).

Hopefully it's light (shade- and application-wise!), and not too cakey. Bought a few to try. Could do with having more in the tub (Lacura is 25g, Collection 2000 had 40g and NYC had 42.4g, Airspun 65g!).

Light-Medium has been OOS for days since I first found it online
- but - it's back Cruelty-Free.

Maybe they only have limited stocks of the Light/Medium. It now says 39485462-5mMbJ.jpgCouldn't find it in my Aldi stores recently. Ended up buying four online and was 4p short for free delivery. Got these Polar Bear Dribble Bibs for £1.99!
is it just me or are all the companies slowly discontinuing their loose powder foundations which come in various shades and replacing them with these kind of loose powders instead??

If anything, I'd say there's many more pressed powder foundation compacts out there than loose powders (at least, at High Street prices).

Personal taste but I don't like heavy makeup and just keep it at moisturiser, a little concealer and loose powder as a mattifying "veil" on my skin. No breakouts either (used to have problematic skin, so that's why I avoid anything higher coverage).

Pressed powder has heavier coverage than loose powder, and not for me.

Loose powder is also known as setting powder, though I don't usually have any foundation on to set! It subtly smooths your skin and gives a hint of colour/brightening, depending on the shade.

no i mean i know there is more loose powder foundations out there now but companies seem to be moving towards setting powders instead & those usually only have a few different shades..usually only 3 or 4 shades. whereas before bobbi brown, laura mercier etc used to do loose powder foundations in many different shades.
I'm not aware of them, I'm concentrating more on High Street prices anyway.

Personally I wouldn't buy a higher-coverage loose powder. But Coty Airspun does have Translucent Extra Coverage along with their regular options.

I've tried mineral powders (where you can control how much coverage you're applying) but they tend to have a weird pearlescent sheen to them, and the matte, natural look is what I want to achieve.

Maybe (loose powder foundations) are following FENTY's lead (as they have a spectrum of colours)? which can only be a good thing.

There's a review for the Lacura Loose Setting Powder which asks for it to be available in more shades. I prefer it to be as neutral as possible.

Aldi are either re-stocking, or their stock checker is broken. It now says this (though, they do hold items in your Basket for 30 minutes, so it could be that)39485880-4ehIY.jpg

Not as far as I know. I do love their Touche Eclat copy (used to buy the "real thing"). They did have Urban Decay palette-alikes but I don't wear eyeshadow enough to justify buying/trying. Went through a phase of being eyeshadow-mad, mind you

Edit: The Mirror (maybe not the most reliable source) think this is a dupe of Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder (which is 29g), eg, £30 at John Lewis.

Also mentioned is the Smashbox-alike
Lacura Snapshot Ready Foundation Primer, £5.99
39486102.jpgLacura Liquid Illuminator, £3.99 (like Iconic London's Illuminator drops)
39486102.jpgLacura Essential Naturals Eyeshadow Palette, £3.99
39486102.jpgLacura Larger Than Life Mascara, £5.99 (someone compares it to Too Faced Born This Way Mascara - I can't see past Max Factor 2000 Calorie, which I've used for years!)
39486102.jpgLacura Aloha Bronzer, £5.99 (think this is a Benefit knockoff)

Yeh I saw the small image without opening the whole deal and thought it was laua mercier. Didn't realise it realise was a dupe name
I clicked on this thinking it was Laura mercier and turns out it’s lacura. Definitely a dupe

Says Lacura in the title and you can see it in the illustration, but the packaging is alike. No one brand has the monopoly on loose powder, though.
Light/Medium is all gone! Medium/Dark is still available. Looking forward to trying this, let's hope they turn it into a year-round line.

Yes of course it saying lacura in the title. I’m not denying that it hasn’t been shown as lacura. It just reminded me of Laura Mercier setting powder.
