Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Review

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Review

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 is a perfect solution, you get a beautiful complexion without needing the additional steps of foundation and bronzer. It’s a win-win.

Laura Mercier recently rebranded its tinted moisturiser and judging from the many reviews, it’s been a smashing success!

The award-winning Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector has some big and impressive claims but before we get to that I need to talk about its 3 in 1 uses!

Not only is it a moisturiser and a foundation replacement, but it also has SPF 30- your sunscreen for the day. I love a product that triples up!

What can you expect from this moisturiser? If you love a no-makeup makeup look then this moisturiser is for you! Besides, no-makeup makeup looks are all the rage at the moment.

This moisturiser gives a beautiful sheer coverage that leaves your skin with a perfect dewy finish. If you don’t love a little dew to your skin, top up the moisturiser with my all-time favourite Laura Mercier Setting Powder.

Since it’s a moisturiser, you probably want to know about its moisturizing capabilities! The moisturizer has some highly beneficial ingredients, starting with the fact that using this moisturizer will over time improve your skin.

It has a unique complex made from Macadamia and Kukui Seed oils to help increase moisture to give you 24 hours of hydration at a time.

This unique complex also helps reduce signs of dry skin. Another ingredient used that helps to retain moisture is Tamarind Seed Extract.

I love the packaging, it looks classy and elegant. The neutral colour gives it a pure no-nonsense type of feel. And no one wants nonsense in their skincare.

At first glance, the tube may seem a little small to you, but actually, it’s really a perfect size since you only need a really small amount of this moisturiser at a time. A little goes a long way.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Shades

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser comes in 20 different shades for all skin types. Although, if you have oily skin it’s worth checking out Laura Mercier’s new oil-free tinted moisturiser.

Using the tinted moisturiser

My overall thoughts on this moisturizer are that it’s a really fabulous product. Easy to apply with a very smooth texture, it literally just glides on! It gives instant hydration to the skin leaving it feeling super soft.

What I love about this moisturizer over other ones is that it doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy. A lot of moisturizers have trouble getting that right.

I also love how it doesn’t settle in the lines! As I’m over 30, my skin is officially aging, lines are increasing, and getting a product that doesn’t settle into the lines is all the way up there on my priority list.

It doesn’t have the highest coverage, but that’s to be expected, it is a tinted moisturiser after all! If you love this product and you want fuller coverage, you can mix the moisturizer with your favourite foundation which works really well.

If you don’t have a favourite foundation check out my many foundation reviews.

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.

My Thoughts

If you are after a good, solid-tinted moisturizer that has health benefits for your skin, then you’ve struck gold. This is definitely one of the best-tinted moisturizers on the market. It’s very natural looking and it’s so easy to use.

Laura Mercier says it’s 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, and I find generally speaking they don’t need extra.

Overall, I definitely 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!

It’s a 3-in-1 product- moisturizer, foundation and sun cream:) It is rather pricey, but at the same time, it’s good quality and does the job it’s supposed to do to a T!

  1. 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?

    1. 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!

  3. 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.

    1. You won’t regret it:) It is a great product!
