Luminous Skin With Laura Mercier


I've spoken about it on my blog, I've told you all to buy it, I've been wearing it for years so it's time to really talk about this incredible product. When it comes to tinted moisturisers, there comes a lot of questions... Does it have any coverage? Will it suit my skin type? Which one do I buy? Is it like a BB Cream? These all depend on which tinted moisturiser you go for, we have NARS as an all rounder, Chantacallie for the luxury option, Benefit for a very light coverage and of course Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser for the ultimate glowing complexion.

Up against many different tinted moisturisers I've tried, this one is a winner and one that is true to its name... moisturising, hydrating, illuminating and lightweight with a flawless finish. My skin is left looking natural and radiant with a healthy glow. I have to say, this gives some serious illumination and however dull or grey my skin is looking, this perks it up and brings it back to life. As this is a super moisturising product, it is very creamy and works into the skin beautifully with fingers or a stippling brush. In terms of lasting power, this is pretttttty good, I can go a whole day without having to touch up, although I would say that if you have oily skin, apply a translucent powder on top just to set it all in place. Coming in 5 shades, I have Bare Radiance which is my perfect all year around shade but when I've been tanned and bronzed up by the sun, I switch to Golden Radiance for natural sun kissed skin.

Even though this is a whopping £34, for 40ml that is a reasonable price compared to the standard 30ml foundations, and seeing as a little goes a very long way with this one, you wont be heading back to that SpaceNK counter to hand over all your savings. Out of all the tinted moisturisers I have tried, Laura Mercier is an absolute favourite, a fab shade range, 3 formulas to suit all skin types (Normal, Oil Free, Illuminating) and each stay true to what it says on the bottle giving a beautiful fresh finish.

What is your go to tinted moisturiser?
