i love how lightweight and sheer the coverage is, it makes me feel like i'm not wearing anything on my face at all

it covers any imperfections and freckles without being too heavy

- Sephora User

i find it lasts well and stays on all day

- John Lewis User

smooth and long lasting

- Sephora User


blends well

this feels wonderful going on, the coverage is nice enough to wear alone, although being a full coverage gal i like to mix it with my foundation and it just blends seamlessly

- Sephora User

this one has the best combination of coverage, blend and how it feels on your skin

- Sephora User



so i am not a makeup person, and i love this product because it provides minimal coverage, moisturizes, and gives you a very natural glow

- Sephora User

on the days i don't feel like doing a full foundation routine this is perfect because it evens out skin tone while moisturizing my face

- Sephora User

i have dry skin and this product evens out the redness and gives me a very natural finish

smooth finish and doesnt clog my pores

- Sephora User

so far this has not broken me out or given me any blackheads, and it stays on my face all day and doesn't get oily, even without powder and primer

- Sephora User



it gave me dry spots and my skin started getting little flakes that were peeling off after wearing it for a few hours during the day

- Lauramercier User

it also seemed to be a tad dryer than the regular formula

- Sephora User

color accuracy


i never return cosmetics and i actually had to return it because it oxidizes so bad

- Nordstrom User

turns orange

it offers light to medium coverage and blends in well with my fingers

- Lauramercier User

Natural Radiance - perfect fit for dry/dull skin!

Now, I have dry skin, so everything that indicates illuminating, radiance or a dewy finish is just right up my alley. (Ergo, I have the Laura Mercier Primer in Radiance and Hydrating.) I also don´t have a whole lot of problematic skin. The occasional break out, but thats really it. Since I am not a daily foundation or tinted moisturizer kinda girl (concealer and powder does it for me on lazy days, with a primer underneath to make everything stay in place), this product is supposed to purely give me a more radiant shine on my otherwise dull and dry looking face. An SPF of 20 clearly is a winner already. Unless you expect to be photographed, an SPF of 20 or higher is always a plus in any product! You can see the light shimmer particles in the product, however ones distributed on the skin it only leaves a slight and very natural looking sheen. Also, this is a light weight product and not covering up any skin issues. It purley gives that highly anticipated dewy feeling to the skin. Overall, I would say after wearing it for a day, the illuminating effect stays on my dry skin really only for a good 4-5 hours. After that it sinks into the skin and though a slight radiant sheen is still visible, which is nice, the moisturizing effect however is completely gone. (I only powder my undereye area to keep the concealer in place and to give the moisturizer space to work. So in my case, powder does not soak up the actual moitsurizer.) It is a rather expensive tinted moitsurizer. Is it worth the money? Yes and No. Yes, it is a high quality product wich does what it says it does. Than again, depending on the skin type, results may vary, which in my case even makes me think, that the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance is giving a similar illuminating effect on the skin (though without SPF) and therfore only one of these will be repurchased. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Quest for Lost Youth

Beautypedia calls this moisturizing foundation "awesome" and gives it a five-star rating, but it made my dry skin so luminous that it looked oily, and no amount of setting or mineralized powder, pressed in with a puff or swept on with a dual-fiber brush, could dim the light. In this way, I learned that glowing skin doesn't necessarily appear younger. Natural Radiance looked so light on my Caucasian skin with yellow undertones that I was desperate to add color with a number of blush applications. No more than half a day, and perhaps no more than a few hours later, I didn't recognize my own face in the mirror as the product had oxidized, and I looked deeply tanned. Beautypedia advises consumers that they would do well to wear the moisturizer over moisturizer with SPF to assure comprehensive sun protection. Way to go from senior to teen in one morning! Apply sparingly. I've had to abandon a number of glow products because the glow, if I saw it at all, dissipated quickly, but illumination *can* become glare, and the "lit from within look" can go way too far! By all means be happy and healthy. Exercise. Dream big dreams, and live large. Just don't, as a British neighbor's young son once said, "overdo." (He loved to overdo. He didn't moisturize.) The lesson: Always use samples for an entire day before you purchase a foundation or a tinted moisturizer that serves as one. Or tell Nordstrom how much you appreciate their indulgent return policy. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="1538303487454788940-full" data-show="1538303487454788940-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

My favorite daily face makeup product

Before this I wore heavy coverage foundations (from other brands). I got a deluxe sample of this and being that I was used to medium to full coverage makeup I wasn't impressed. I then grew tired of the cakey look that foundations gave me and wasn't happy with how unnatural they would look as they'd wear off throughout the day. I decided to give this another shot and loved it! This stuff sinks right into my skin and NEVER looks unnatural or cakey not even when it wears off. I wear a primer with this and a finishing powder so I don't even think that this does wear off on me. I also use concealer on acne spots and under my eyes. I do find that I touch up my t-zone with a compact powder about 1-2 times during my 12 hour day but I don't think that's bad at all. If I ever want more coverage (which isn't often) then I'll wear powder all over my face on top of this tinted moisturizer. Overall I think this is a great, natural looking product and I enjoy using it every day. I love that this evens out my skin and doesn't ever settle into creases or wrinkles. I never thought that I would be a fan of light coverage but I love it! I totally understand Laura's flawless philosophy and this product has led me to try other Laura Mercier products. So far, like my nickname says, I'm loving LM! Two things that would make this product better would be if it were SPF 30 or higher (since the recommend SPF amount for the face is 30) and if it were a little less expensive. Fortunately a little of this product does go a long way. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-3922425475050280876-full" data-show="-3922425475050280876-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

This product is fantastic. I hate the feel of both powder and liquid foundations because I feel (both mentally and physically) too made up. I have sensitive skin and I hate the feeling of a cake face. Loving natural-looking makeup, I gave this a try. I've gone through Smashbox and MUFE liquid and powder foundations and have ended up returning each one. This stuff is great. It's sheer enough that it looks natural and genuinely pretty- not too make up. If you're looking for full coverage stuff, look elsewhere. I also love that the shade matches my skin tone perfectly. I have insanely pale skin (casper the ghost white) and it matches exactly- probably because it's so sheer. I also love that it has SPF 20 sunscreen (even though you should use at least 30 daily), but it's better than none. I am convinced that sunscreen is the way to beauty.... so I'm going to keep up my regime of spf 30 every day. As for using this with other products... a finishing powder and/or blush could be used afterwards. Primer and sunscreen could easily be used beforehand. Just be sure that the moisturizer has fully dried before putting on an other makeup afterwards. Pros: sheer, natural, redness-correcting, moisturizing Cons: Needs better sun protection Go ahead and try it. Sephora has a fantastic return policy if you have any problems with it. Just keep the receipt. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-4182451544553006389-full" data-show="-4182451544553006389-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Perfect - Better Than Silk Creme!

I wanted the flawless look and went to invest on Laura Mercier. At first after seeing comparisons by beauty bloggers I picked the Silk Creme because it gave a smooth matte look which I thought was more suitable for the office. I used the Silk Creme on top of Radiance Foundation Primer (which I love to death). However, because I have a normal/ dry skin, Silk Creme ended up OVER-mattifying my skin. My usually supple and glowing skin looked very powdered, dried out, almost fake. The formula was also very heavy. I switched to Tinted Moisturizer and cannot be happier. It's not as dewy or as "oily" as pictured online. The result definitely depends on your skin type and the amount of product you use. The formula is light and watery and is absorbed nicely by the skin, leaving a fresh feeling. I use a sheer amount of the foundation primer, just to give my skin an even texture. I applied pea-sized amount of tinted moisturizer as a lot of bloggers recommend and blended the formula in with a foundation brush (highly recommended to get smooth, airbrushed result that you see in ads - you don't want to use your fingers and see lines). I topped it off with the loose setting powder - which is great. I think it's optional, especially for people with normal/ dry skin. But it's just nice to have the whole look set for the whole day and not have to blot your face around dinner time. What I get is a healthy, glowing skin look. NOT the oil-slick YSL foundation look - which, for me, is too much for everyday use. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="7179901940891368954-full" data-show="7179901940891368954-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Anyone know of a great tinted moisturizer that won’t make my skin look flakey or dry when applied to my skin, I’ve tried Clinique moisture surge and first aid beauty’s shade rage isn’t light enough for my skin. I have super dry, sensitive, acne prone skin. I’ve applied tinted moisturizer with my hands which left my skin flakey, then applied moisturizer and applied with a brush but still had the same affect, am I doing something wrong?? I want a natural finish without the hassle of a lot of makeup
