Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Review

posted in: Makeup | 6

As a busy Mom I’m always on the lookout for effective ways to make my makeup routine shorter without compromising on the final result. A tinted moisturizer seems like the perfect way to do that since you don’t need to apply foundation after. In this Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer review I’ll explore the advantages and disadvantages to this product.

About the Moisturizer

This tinted moisturizer is Laura Mercier’s award wining multi tasking moisturizer. It brightens dull and tired looking skin, is very lightweight to wear and adds a soft hint of colour giving you a radiant look. It comes in a pretty neutral coloured, squeezable tube which, although might not look big you don’t need to use a lot of product at a time so it goes a long way.

The moisturizer has some very beneficial ingredients to it starting with sodium hyaluronate which softens lines, helping your skin stay soft and appear younger. It also has vitamin E which is an antioxidant that helps protect and repair your skin, and with an SPF 20 you don’t need to wear any sun cream.

It comes in 5 different shades and is supposedly for all skin types.

My overall thoughts on this moisturizer is that its a really good product. It moisturizes well and leaves the skin feeling very soft. What I love about laura mercierthis moisturizer over other ones is that it doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy. A lot of moisturizers have trouble getting that right. It blends really easily giving your skin a really natural glow with a flawless finish. It doesn’t have the highest coverage so if you love this product and you want a stronger coverage you can mix the moisturizer with your favourite foundation which works really well. If you don’t have a favourite foundation I highly recommend Lancome Teint Idole– I am totally obsessed!

One drawback to this moisturizer is that if you have any imperfections they will be highlighted due to it being an illuminating product. I recommend using concealer on your imperfections prior to applying moisturizer.

My main criticism about this product is that the lightest colour is not light enough. It’s slightly too orange for someone with porcelain skin like mine. It always makes me sad when products are only made for the more popular skin tones.

 

Summing it up

This is definitely one of the best tinted moisturizers on the market. Its very natural looking and enhances your face. Laura Mercier says its for all skin types, however, I think it works best for people with dry to normal skin. This is because people with combination or oily skin have a ‘natural shine’ to their skin, they don’t need extra.

Overall, I would recommend this tinted moisturizer.I think it’s an excellent product and if you’re short on time in the morning, or you’re simply not into makeup then this is for you! Its a 3 in 1 product- moisturizer, foundation and sun cream:) It is rather pricey but for a 3 in 1 product I think its worth it!

I hope you enjoyed this Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Review and that its helped you decide if this product is for you. If you’ve got any questions or you’ve used this product I’d love to hear from you in the comments below:)

    Well done. I like the tinted moisturizers for the sheer fact that I don’t have to use a foundation plus. I like to keep my make up routine simple unless I’m going out to a fancy place. I have oily skin and this sounds like it would be great for me. Thanks for the review.

    I am a huge fan of Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer. I purchased a travel size at a Sephora almost 6 months ago and absolutely love it. You are right about it going a long way. I also really like the way it moisturizes without making my skin feel greasy. I only wish that it contained slightly more SPF since 20 seems a little low. Have you ever tried applying a stronger sun screen before applying the moisturizer?

      I agree with you, SPF 2O is a bit low- its a shame they changed it from 30. I never tried applying sun cream first, I’m not sure if it would work well. What you can do is apply a mist sun cream after the moisturizer. A mist sun cream doesn’t need rubbing in so it shouldn’t affect your moisturizer. I recommend using Ambre Solaire Dry Mist Sun Cream Spray SPF50. Good Luck!

    Thanks for this thorough review.
    I’m looking for a tinted moisturizer that has a glowing finish.
    I have a combination skin type, my T-zone is a bit oily but the other area is normal. However, I’m interested in trying this tinted moisturizer. I want to try the light to medium shade.
    It seems can be a great go-to product for me.
