I have been using Laura Mercier‘s Flawless Face* products for almost a month now, and I cannot wait to tell you about them!
Promising a flawless finish, Laura Mercier’s iconic products include the Foundation Primer, the Tinted Moisturiser (which comes in all the shades of skintone you can dream of), and the Setting Powder. Using all of them together may seem a little much for some, but trust me, they’re incredibly lightweight, as if you have only a teensy layer of moisturiser on your skin!
The Foundation Primer is a new favourite of mine. I find that it works better with my foundation (I currently own only one: the Marc Jacobs gel foundation) than the tinted moisturiser. My foundation took only mere seconds to set, and it lasted throughout the day. The primer also gives a matte finish, and comes in a fuss-free tube so it is really convenient to just squeeze them onto my palm and massage into my skin.
The Tinted Moisturiser I’ve received is in the shade ‘Blush‘, which is too light for my skintone. Coverage is minimal as well; not surprising as it is basically moisturiser that has been coloured. The Tinted Moisturiser is very hydrating and lasts almost a full day. My dry skin is pleased about that! For fuller coverage, their foundations may do a better job.
Lastly, the Setting Powder is used to, well, set your makeup. Laura Mercier’s super fine, translucent Setting Powder did make my tinted moisturiser/foundation last longer throughout the day, and it comes in a very large jar, one of the biggest in the market I’ve seen.
The Foundation Primer retails for RM139 (50ml), Tinted Moisturiser RM169 (50ml) and the Setting Powder RM169 (23g).
Laura Mercier is available in selected Sephora stores nationwide and in Pavilion KL, The Gardens, Bangsar Village II, One Utama (New Wing), Sunway Pyramid, and Empire Subang Gallery.
