Product Review: Laura Mercier Cosmetics

Laura Mercier is an award-winning cosmetic line by artist Laura Mercier. I’ve been lucky enough to receive some of her products, complimentary, through Influenster. (You can read more about that program here.)

In a previous VoxBox , I received the Laura Mercier foundation, concealer, and setting powder. To see what I got this time, watch the video below:

I received this box in the middle of the summer. I live in Georgia, so “hot” is an understatement to describe our humid summer days. I like wearing natural makeup on a daily basis, so I was pretty excited to receive a tinted moisturizer in my VoxBox. Tinted moisturizers are the BEST in the summer- you can get some light coverage, moisturize your skin, AND protect your skin from UV damage with built in sunscreen. I got the shade 6W1 MOCHA, which is the darkest shade that Laura Mercier offers. When I first opened the tube, i was a little worried- it was pretty light!

I apply the moisturizer with my fingers, after applying Laura Mercier primer. I try to take great care of my skin, so I don’t wear foundation when it’s hot outside. After filling in my brows, I’ll add a quick flick of highlighter, then I’m out the door!

At the end of the day, I’m overall pleased with the Moisturizer. It’s light, it’s breathable, and it has minimal transfer. The coverage is very light, so it won’t conceal any discoloration but it will give a natural-toning finish. The only drawback I have for this moisturizer is oil control. My skin type and oil level is dependent on the seasons, so in the summer I’m usually pretty oily. This product had no positive or negative effect on my oil level. As a recommendation, i would use with a matte finishing spray or a matte primer for oil control.

I received all of the mentioned products complimentary for testing! If you’d like to receive your own free goodies, read this post!

 

Until next time! ♥
