I always get excited when I see a new setting powder come out, more specifically one that’s brown. It seems like a no-brainer but I am not under the impression that they’ve been around very long. I still use translucent setting powders, Make Up For Ever’s is particularly good. But there’s nothing like seeing a brown one. Today, I’m talking about Lancome’s Long Time No Shine Loose Setting Powder in Deep, a powder I’ve been using since last summer.

My skin type

Oily and imperfect. I have fading dark acne scars and tiny icepick scars on my cheeks.

What it’s supposed to do

From the brand: This airy, lightweight powder sets makeup for an all day wear without leaving behind a white veil. Skin instantly looks smoother, more even and blemish-free. Thanks to the ultra-thin mica minerals, your foundation’s color is preserved all day long and skin stays shine-free all day long.


Talc, Silica, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dimethicone, Boron Nitride, Magnesium Stearate, Diphenyl Dimethicone/Vinyl Diphenyl Dimethicone/Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Methicone, Hydrogen Dimethicone. May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).

How I use it

I’ve tried this powder on its own without any foundation underneath. I figured because it’s tinted brown, I shouldn’t have any problems just wearing it like a powder, especially if it keeps me less oily. However, I generally pair this powder with a foundation, as that’s how it was meant to be used. I prefer using a brush over a beauty sponge with setting powder in general, although, the beauty sponge works just as well.

What I like about it

  • I really like the finish of the powder; it gives you a flawlessly matte finish without making you look like you’ve got on a ton of makeup.
  • The dark loose setting powders I have tried have red undertones; this one has neutral undertones.
  • It can be worn on its own to some conceal imperfections. It doesn’t completely cover my acne scarring but it does a good job of making me look awake and put together.

What could be better

  • It’s a little bit too dark for my complexion, especially during the winter months when I’m two shades lighter than I am in the summer. I’d like to see a few shades in between the translucent and the deep shade.
  • I don’t feel it’s suitable for oily skin (mine). If I use this in the morning to set my makeup, by 1 pm, I am shiny af; that’s generally how that works with me if I am not using a phenomenal foundation. As a powder to sop up oil without disturbing your foundation, it works great. However, it’s $37 and not entirely different than any other setting powder that will do the same thing.
