Makeup : Review of Tinted Moisturizer by Laura Mercier

October 12, 2012

Probably every beauty addict in Dubai jumped of joy when we discovered that Laura Mercier finally landed here! And of course, I immediately rushed to see what they had when it first opened its counter at Bloomingdales. 

I was only able to get my hands on their super famous that everyone raves about Tinted Moisturizer. I couldn’t really see what they had other than their face products because it was 10 pm, the stores were closing and I had to choose something fast! Plus, they didn’t have everything in stocks. And the assistants didn’t know much about the products and the prices, they kind of looked unprofessional to me. But it should be better now that the brand is here long enough.

Enough of the useless talking, moving on to the product!!
I got this lovely tube in an oil free formula as my face tends to get oily during the day. And it’s got spf 20, the daily amount of spf that you need.
Now, it says that it’s lightweight… True. BUT, there’s always a ‘but’, it kind of felt weird when I had it on at first. I’m used to foundations that would stick to your skin. This is no MAC Studio Fix Fluid.
It’s so easy to apply it, and it goes on so smoothly. But make sure to use after it a setting powder, specially if you have oily skin.
Not blended
It has a rather good coverage for a tinted moisturizer. Again, I’m used to my Studio Fix Fluid which has full coverage so I kind of feel naked with this. 
The tube is really simple, not too cheap, not to classy. Just like the packaging of every other Laura Mercier product.
The shade I was matched to is Nude.
Overall, I’m really happy with this product. It’s something new to me and newer is always better 😉 What bugs me the most is the price. It’s a bit pricey compared to what I would normally go for. But for now, I’m using this everyday!
You can find this Tinted Moisturizer at Laura Mercier’s counter in Bloomingdales’ beauty department for AED 178.

Have you ever tried Laura Mercier products? Any other recommendations?

    I heard this was too sheer so I decided to skip it as I already have a sheer foundation for everyday.. But I love LM’s Radiance Primer.. It gives such a beautiful subtle glow to the skin.. Also I did try their silk creme foundation about a year and a bit ago which I didn’t like then but I tried it again recently, and it’s not that bad.. But it does need a little bit of work in my opinion

      I was about to get that foundation.. But then I sticked to tinted moisturizer because I don’t really own sheer foundations. But I’m looking forward to try out the primer!

    […] 6. Tinted Moiturizer by Laura Mercier. I’ve been using this one religiously. My excuse for having it on my face everyday: it contains SPF. Full review about it here. […]
