Laura Mercier: Smooth Finish Collection

Laura Mercier products are always on my beauty wish list. My friend uses the foundation and her skin is always flawless with the most beautiful finish. She swears by Laura Mercier and I have been meaning to go get my shade matched for a while now as I want my skin to look like hers!

Last month I got a ‘Save the date’ for a Laura Mercier event. I popped it in my diary and even booked my Eurostar ticket around it…This was one event I wasn’t missing!

Laura Mercier’s smooth Finish Collection is made up of 24 shades of light-weight foundations. The foundations are oil free and use a water based formula which give you a perfect, flawless, matte finish look.

I have major issues finding a foundation to match my super pale skin, so I’m excited to say the Creme shade works perfectly with my skin-tone. The Smooth Finish collection comes in 24 different colours to work with pretty much every skin tone and undertone.

The texture is super light and if I describe it as ‘watery’ it’s not an insult, it’s just super light (yet heavily pigmented) and easy to move around you skin. You only need to apply a tiny amount to give a great coverage with a great finish. This product contains active ingredients so you need to shake to activate. Just put a small amount onto the back of your hand and apply with you fingertips or sponge/ brush.

I love this product, it matches my skin tone perfectly (which is pretty impressive in itself) and it feels super light to wear. I love the coverage and I love the finish. I’m not into heavy make up on my skin, I don’t like the way it feels and I try to keep my skin looking fresh and healthy to make my heavy eyeliner look less severe. I love this, I should have bought Laura Mercier foundation earlier, it’s worth the hype!

    Ooh it sounds really good 🙂 I’d love to try it out but it is a tad expensive for me. I am on the lookout for the perfect foundation so I might give this a whir at some stage!

    I bought this foundation a few weeks ago and I have been using it NONSTOP! It is so pretty and it doesn’t feel like you have any foundation on. Its so worth the price tag.

    I’ll be doing Mercier in the Space NK sale. I have zero shame. I do not care.

    I want the secret camouflage.
