Holy grail of tinted moisturizers.
I'm so glad that they came out with more shades cause I was wearing sand for the longest and it oxidized too dark for me. Yes, this product does oxidize. My match now is ochre. It gives more coverage than most tinted mosturizers are so I look at it as a lightweight foundation. Pretty pricy but it lasts for a long time, mine usually lasts for a good 8 months. I don't understand the claim that its a matte finish because I have too frequently powder, which isn't a big deal to me.
New Favorite Tinted Moisturizer
I was looking for a new tinted moisturizer for the summer, and I had always heard amazing things about the Laura Mercier one. Many of my friends swear by this product, regardless of the season or the occasion, so I thought why not test it out. I went to my local Sephora, and tried it on. It goes on smooth, and hardly feels like you're wearing anything at all, which is a key factor for me. This particular shade is a bit too dark, however since it is the summer, it's fairly easy to work with. If you are looking for something lightweight, but gives amazing coverage, look no further.
This makes my skin feel great, and It is fantastic that it has an SPF. I stole my mom's, and I can only use it during the summer, but it is gorgeous! It is far too expensive for what it is, but the product itself is so gorgeous
I really love this tinted moisturizer. I generally despise liquid foundations because they feel so mask like on my face but this is incredibly light I can't tell I have it on at all and it gives me such a flawless complexion. I generally don't break out too much so I can't say it will cover everything but it's perfect for evening out my skin tone if I have any redness. I have combination skin that errs on the oily side.
amazing for oily/ combo skin
My skin used to be really oily in high school and it's settled down a bit since then so it's a little combo. summer means oil, and winter means some dry areas. and I gotta say in the summertime (and now that I'm hooked, in the winter too) this is a must for me. Perfect. Didn't feel like I had anything on, and I could skip waiting for my moisturizer to settle in, in the AM.

I LOVE this tinted moisturizer! The coverage is amazing while it's really lightweight and feels like skin. I have oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin, but this does not clog my pores or break me out. I've been using this for over a year and it's still going strong; the way it's designed makes it "travel friendly." Also, I can exercise/work out with this on my face and my pores won't get clogged! Love this.
Not So Kind to My Pores
While the coverage was pretty decent, considering everyone can essentially make their own tinted moisturizer, it wasn't very nice on my pores. My pores get clogged quite easily and I noticed it did just that with this product. I refuse to buy tinted moisturizer now ever since I found out you're only getting a very very low percentage of color in tinted moisturizer. I'd rather mix foundation and moisturizer myself to make a tinted moisturizer. It's cheaper and better on my skin than this product in my opinion.
Worth the price!
I always thought I prefer foundation with more coverage until I started using this. I love how it gives a nice glow and makes my skin look healthier. It doesn't make my skin flawless-perfect, but it definitely makes my skin imperfect-perfect even though I don't have perfect skin at all!
Though it's oil free, it's very moisturizing, Sometimes in summer, it gets too much on my normal-oily skin so I switch to MUFE face&body but I still like this product that I don't mind the price at all.
I use Nude usually.It's a bit darker for my skin but it blends really well. I also use Porcelain for when I'm pale in winter, or sometimes just mix it with Nude.
I'd been on the hunt for a tinted moisturizer for a few months and came across Laura Mercier. I was instantly drawn to it because there was a plethora of colors to choose from ( as opposed to drug store and other high end brands), light to full coverage, and that it was oil free - which was the kicker for me. However, after a few months of using this product, I must say that I'm quite disappointed. It says it is oil-free but within five minutes of applying this to my face - I'm shiny and oily requiring the use of oil blotting sheets. I'd heard such great reviews from people with oily/combination skin that it worked wonders for them but it just didn't do that for me. I even put a primer on before, applied my regular moisturizer and let that sit for a few minutes before applying Laura Mercier. On top of that, it made my skin very unappealing, at least in my opinion. If it wasn't for the shine and oil, I would continue to use this product but with the weather in Hawaii and having combination skin this just isn't working for me.
