REVIEW: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free SPF 20
Product name: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free SPF 20 in Walnut
Purchased at: Sephora stores, Sephora.com
Product price: $42.00
Product claims: This lightweight foundation that can be reapplied as necessary, offers sun protection for sensitive or acne prone skin, oil control, and provides hydration to prevent dryness.
Would I re-purchase? Yes.
Final thoughts: I love this stuff & every client that I've put this product on has purchased it as well. It's so lightweight, gives awesome coverage & lasts all day & just blends into the skin so well. I always moisturize my face & use a primer whenever I apply any type of makeup product on my face. It's a given for me. So I recommend you do the same, especially if you have dry skin. I use Stila's color correcting primer to correct redness on my face around the nose & mouth area. I then dab the tinted moisturizer all over my face & blend with my fingers. I use Maybelline's Matte powder lightly just to set, mainly concentrating in my t-zone area because that's where I get oily. I've had clients who asked what kind of foundation I'm wearing when I use this product & some refuse to believe that it's just tinted moisturizer. Yes, it's that good. If you know how to apply it right, you'll definitely fall in love with this product like I did.
Because of this product's wonderful coverage, I no longer use concealer :D I'll use concealer only if I have a blemish to cover that the tinted moisturizer couldn't cover. I also don't wear foundation on a daily basis because of this. Oh how I love Laura Mercier! Photo taken in natural sunlight.
