Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free Review


I have written a post on how to choose the right shade foundation, or tinted moisturizer, using 2 Laura Mercier shades as an example in this previous post.

That was a year ago and I got the chance to really use this Tinted Moisturizer from the brand for so many times and I am ready to share my thoughts about it as I am almost done with this tube.

Hailed as a light finish matte moisturizer foundation, this gives a sheer coverage formula with blurred matte finish.

As someone who has normal/dry skin, tinted moisturizer foundations are my thing but living in a tropical country doesn't mean I'll pile this product all over and leave as is.  That is what I feel ON EVERY SINGLE tinted moisturizers in this entire planet but not with Laura Mercier.

Let's talk about the effect, I don't call it Matte finish but it leans towards Demi-matte finish.  I love how it gives my skin an instant healthy glow probably coming from the "moisture" that comes with the product.  Checking out the product ingredients, it comes with Licorice Root Extract, Vitamin E, Jojoba Esters, Squalene and Glycerin --- all skin loving, moisture-packing ingredients.  If you are on the oily skin department, fret not, they also have some oil-absorbing ingredient included as I NEVER felt greasy even if I am under the humid weather.

The product boasts to have SPF20 included aside from Foundation and Moisturizer.  Though SPF20 may be good, do not skip your sunscreen because that would never be enough to protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun!

On to the coverage, I am LOVING this as it gives light yet buildable coverage.  I mean look at that photo below!  I can get away not using any concealer (but don't skip it if you need heavy coverage!).  The effect is super natural - a PURE definition of NO MAKEUP LOOK!

I like to apply this using my OVAL brush as I can apply more in small areas at a time.  I also like to set with powder still as I NEVER EVER leave home without setting my face with powder.  

How do I feel about it?
I love it! The texture is so smooth and it blends onto my skin like butter!  I also like the fact that demarcation marks are not a thing with this Tinted Moisturizer.  Since it is oil-free, I love how it felt like I am wearing NOTHING.  SERIOUSLY NOTHING!

Will I repurchase?
YES!  And I highly recommend everyone who dislikes using foundation on a daily basis to try this instead.

And can I just say?   I love you guys!  I have been blogging for MORE than a decade now, 15 years to be exact and if you are still reading this after all these years, CYBER HUGS guys!!!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
