As you might see in the picture, that is my Laura Mercier Oil-free Tinted Moisturizer. Squeezed out the last drip today, thank goodness it was just enough to cover my face. Well… actually not really, but just had to print some things at uni so an almost-bare face wasn’t a biggie;-) Immediately got a new one on my way home, this time the regular version. I’ve used both for a long time already, and have to say the regular is my favorite. I feel that it oxidizes less, and somehow that my face is less shiny throughout the day.
I’ve been using the Laura Mercier TM for about 4 years already. I know, that is ridiculously long. I think it’s my only product in my make up stash that I have this long – this, and the Estée Lauder Double Wear mascara. Coming back to the TM. It’s an amazing product, but not for those that are looking for medium to full coverage. I used to be a full coverage girl, and when I ordered this, I was so disappointed after its first use that I haven’t used it at all for a while. But then when my skin started clearing up, I applied it and my skin looked still natural, but better. I used to apply two layers of this, the second layer 5 minutes later so the first has really “sunk in/dried”. But recently my skin has been amazing, so I’ve just been using one layer of the TM!
Since I’ve been living in Paris, I’ve been wearing this on a daily basis – and this is something that has never occurred to me. I always like to use different products on a daily base, don’t ask me why, that’s just how I am. But these few weeks I have been using the same products as a base (primer/TM/concealer), and my skin looks flawless and very natural. I even got many compliments:-)
I might do a review on both tinted moisturizers, maybe even a comparison review if there is any interest for that!
