Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation Review

foundation, foundation primer and concealer reviews
Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation Review
Laura Mercier says that this foundation has a "soft matte" finish, a phrase that sold me right away. I'm a girl with combination skin, the idea of no shine.... yes, very appealing!




Consistency: Liquid foundation
Blendability: Easily blended, I recommend finishing with a sponge (I like my Beauty Blender) for a flawless finish
Buildable coverage: Yes
Feeling on skin: Lightweight
Wear: 12-14 hours
Problems with wear: No caking, doesn't settle into fine lines
Shades Available: 12 shades are available, I used warm ivory

There is one little quirk to this foundation. Do not pair it with Stila's BB Cream, which is basically a foundation primer. I'm not sure why, but the two don't seem to like each other and the result is orange foundation with spotty coverage after about 6-8 hours.

With any other primer (or lack of primer) this foundation looks perfect for 12-14 hours and doesn't change colors. I've found myself reaching for it over and over.

Hey Christine, I've heard that Laura Mercier also kept this foundation silicone-free. Please say it's so! There are too few silicone-free foundies on the market.

I don't see any on the ingredients list, so unless I'm overlooking something I think it is silicone free!

It is silicone-free - it's going to be my next purchase I think; I've read nothing but amazing reviews of it!
