Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation |
Laura Mercier is a brand that I have been dying to try for some time now, their Silk Crème foundation being top of my wishlist due to the hype and the promises of a long lasting, glowing foundation. Their sleek tubes and simplistic designs had me hooked from the get go and after spending an extortionate amount of time in Space NK, I came out with a massive grin on my face and a new foundation in my bag.
Unlike many other high end foundations, the shade that I picked up - Rose Beige - is a perfect match for me, a shade which is suitable for fair to light skin with cool undertones. Even though it states that this foundation is full coverage, I'd still say it was medium coverage, but extremely buildable. The finish is a semi matte satin finish with a thick yet creamy and hydrating formula which blends easily into the skin whilst covering any marks, blemishes or imperfections. The only downfall to this foundation is that if you're in a rush or you're somebody who only has five minutes to do your make up in the morning then this foundation may not be the one for you as you definitely need to blend until your wrist hurts. What made me fall in love with this foundation is that it is long wearing with or without powder and it photographs beautifully because it is contains no SPF. I take a pea sized amount on my Zoeva 102 Silk Finish brush and blend until I'm satisfied, then I buff over my powder and set with my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting spray to make sure it lasts all day.
Overall, the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation is definitely worth the hype and it's £34 price tag. I've worn it pretty much everyday and am pleased with the natural, glowing finish that it gives my skin.
