Good but ...
Although i heard rave reviews about this foundation, i am 50/50 about it. it left my skin glowing yes, and looked very nice. But the few dry spots i had around my face or pimples it emphasized by building up around it. so it does not apply to blemishes well, or dry skin. Other then that it feels quite nice on the skin, and does last awhile. I would be more inclined to purchase it again if it was cheaper.... $$$
I'm in love with this foundation!!! it gives me a flawless finish, lasts all day (with a setting spray) was expensive but soo worth it, and you only need a little bit of it, and a tiny bit goes along way, also best used with a dense stippling brush to get a really nice airbrushed finish!
I have combination skin and this foundation emphasized those dry spots and made it look caky! It also has a very yellow undertone and didn't blend in to my skin as smooth as I'd like it too. I would recommend this for people with normal/oily skin as it could do wonders for them, it offers great coverage :)
Not for normal/dry skins
I got that foundation after the recommendation of the lady at the counter and it's a no-go for me.
I have normal/sensitive skin and it's definitely not a good product for normal/dry skins.
It's a very matte finish which looks very unnatural on my skin.
I believe it would be a very good product for people with oily skin who want a full coverage foundation.
I don't see how that foundation can have a "radiant glow".
The only thing I loved about it is the smell and I have to say that the range of colors is very nice.
I've had a hard time finding foundations and used MAC ones for a long time (which I wasn't fond of). When I saw the Laura Mercier section at Sephora I immediately wanted to try the Silk Créme foundation. I like medium coverage that still looks natural and this gives me exactly that. Using the Real Techniques Stippling brush and Expert Face brush I get the most beautiful flawless coverage ever. Totally worth the price.
LOVE IT BUT A BIT PRICEY
I love this foundation, I tried a sample I recieved at Sephora first before buying the full size. This will last a long time because you need so little product to cover your face, I love it. Its so smooth and creamy, this gives me medium coverage which is what I like. I use this for personal use and I do have a few other shades I use on clients. I have never had any complaints about this product. I have a philosopy, if I wouldn't use it myself, don't use it on a client. I recommend this to so many people so there is no doubt that I love it.
Medium-Full coverage, creamy, satin finish, feels light, blends well
When I first heard about this foundation being $42, I immediately tried to put it out of my mind to try it. After watching many people rave about this and how great it looked on them, I finally caved and got it with the help of a few Sephora gift cards. ;) My first reactions to applying this product to my skin was: WOW, it's extremely concentrated and you only need a little amount to go on your entire face. It gives fantastic coverage while feeling silky smooth and looking natural. It blends super nicely into my skin and doesn't set into my skin too quickly. Since I have oily skin, I did set it with a powder. Without a powder, I would look too dewy for my liking. The longevity of this foundation is outstanding. Although it lasts a long time on my skin, my greasy face gets oily around the third hour of wearing this foundation. I do not mind powdering my face every few hours because the foundation makes my skin look so flawless. I still do use my MAC studio finish concealer with this foundation (just because I like a flawless face). I haven't had any breakouts with this foundation. Highly recommended -- unless you have oily skin and don't want to re-powder your face throughout the day.
Great foundation, but pricey!
The feel and coverage of this foundation is very smooth and creamy. It is medium-full coverage (depending on how much you apply) and gives a dewy, but not too dewy finish. While you do still need to set with powder (especially if you have oily skin), I could probably get away without it. It blends very easily and looks incredibly natural as long as you don’t over-do it (which could cause it too look cakey). You only need a tiny bit of this (which is good since the tube is so pricey) and the coverage is very build-able. I’ve found that I always need less than I think I do! I’ve also found that this foundation gives such great coverage that I usually don’t need a separate concealer. My color, "beige ivory", is slightly more yellow than I'd like...I may try out Medium Ivory at some point.
Unfortunately, this foundation kind of melts off your face throughout the day. This is usually the case with more moisturizing and creamy foundations. I haven’t tried this with primer or setting spray yet, so using those may help in keeping it on until the end of the day.
I would definitely suggest this foundation if you have the money to splurge on it! If you don’t, however, I feel like there are comparable options out there that are less expensive. Its best for skin that is dry or combination…if you have really really oily skin you will probably find this to be too moisturizing for you. I haven’t decided yet if I would repurchase this when I run out, but its definitely a possibility!
I have to say i was a nervous spending so much money on one beauty brought. I brought it for $49.95, but i seriously love this item. Its texture feels amazing and it really is silky. It really does cover all your face on such a small amount and its amazzing coverage. meaning you dont need to use alot. it has great stay putting power and stays for hours. its great and worth the money in my book, i will be buying more!
