Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer Is My New BFF
I don't have many BFF's in the world but I just found another one in Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer. I decided after having a super hot summer last year, that I was going to look for a tinted moisturizer. Lets face it, the summer is not nice to foundation. I wanted something light but would also even out my skin tone. I got a sample of a few and decided upon Laura Mercier's. I went with the oil-free version, as I have oily skin.
I settled on the color Caramel which actually matches nicely. I find that this product just blends right into my skin, leaving a nice satiny finish. I also like that it contains SPF 20, which is great for UV protection. I found that this actually gives really great coverage for a tinted moisturizer, similar to a light coverage foundation. It feels very light on the skin and doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything at all. I do layer this over my Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture because it acts like a primer and helps the tinted moisturizer blend better. I then set it with MAC Prep + Prime ttranslucent setting powder or MAC blot powder. I find both give me a nice flawless finish.
You can pick this up at Laura Mercier counters or Sephora (like I did). It retails for $42 but I had a 15% coupon that I took advantage of. Do you like tinted moisturizers?
