Hayya Lovelys today's post is going to be on the Laura Mercier silk creme foundation. This is one of the foundations I have had on my list to buy for such a long time as I am a foundation hoarder I have like 10 different foundations (Opps) But i want to get a few more as i am trying to find the perfect foundation for me.
Laura Mercier says: " The ultimate in flawless natural coverage. Silk creme foundation is a beautiful, light-diffusing formula offering advanced light-reflection properties which cause fine lines and wrinkles to optically vanish. Laura created an innovative foundation that delivers flawless, buildable coverage in a long wearing rich hydrating base.
Laura Mercier is a hard brand to find were I live but I managed to get this when I was in England visiting family. This foundation is fine for all skin types and is oil free (grate for me as i have oily skin) It retails for a whopper of £33 which is CRAZY as you only get 35ml of product which is a little more compared to most foundation. This foundation is a cream texture (hence the name haha) So it is a little better for me to use than the NARS sheer glow as that is a very liquid foundation and can go on the skin quite streaky. one of the makeup artists said to me that most people that use the NARS sheer glow end up using the silk cream as the shades and the coverage are very similar but the texture of silk creme goes on a lot smother
My color is in soft ivory which is the lightest shade they do. The silk cream foundation comes in shades suitable for all skin tones with 10 different shades to choose from. This foundation actually adapts to be a perfect match to the skin the more you blend it. I find this foundation goes on the skin the best with either a buffing brush or a beauty blender to get the right amount of coverage and a even base.
I would recommend this foundation to every single person on this planet as its so amazing and is medium to full coverage. Just remember before you use it to shake the bottle well.
Hope this review was helpfull let me know what you think of this foundation
