REVIEW // Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

I have been seriously loving the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, it was a real impulse buy, I had some points saved up on Birchbox that needed spending, I spotted this on their online shop and without reading any reviews ordered it, which is very unusual for me - I like to know what I'm getting normally particualry when it comes to skin products and foundation but thankfully it paid off for me this time, I went for the shade Nude which I think is the second lightest shade and almost a perfect match for my skin tone, probably the best match I have found, coverage on this is fairly light, during Summer I have been wearing this on it's own but now it's moving into the colder months, I'm using this all over and then using a little bit of extra coverage  where I need it, normally on my cheeks in the form of the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation in the shade B40, the two blend together really well and leave my skin looking very natural but with an even tone, it doesn't look cakey and has a nicedewy effect which I'm all about.

Formula wise, this is a moisturizer but it's lightweight so I do use a regular moisturiser underneath, my current is the Antipodes Vanilla Pod Day Cream, review here, which is quite a heavy formula so they work OK together, it has an SPF 20, offering protection from both UVA and UVB rays which is always a win. I've been using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush or the Zoeva Silk Finish brush with this, buffing it into skin which gives a really natural finish. Price wise, it's not the cheapest at £34 for 50ml but I've been using this for the past 2 months, albeit fairly sparingly but it still seems to be going stong.

You can find this in most places but I picked mine up from BirchBox here.

  1. This is such an interesting product! The only thing that's bothering me is that it's so lightweight that you have to use another product with it.
