Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation

This foundation is award winning; Allure Best of Beauty Editors’ Choice – Best Foundation – October 2009 and In Style Best Beauty Buy – Best Oil-Free Foundation – April 2009.

I had to try it. Had to I tell you! Here’s what I think:

The Good:

  • Good Coverage
  • Feels Soft

The Bad:

  • It made my skin look flat and lifeless. I can’t stand make-up that makes me look 1 dimensional.
  • It transferred to my shirt.
  • Poor Range of Shades : There are 11 shades in the range. The make-up Assistant at the Laura Mercier stand had difficulty finding a shade to match my skintone. There is not a wide enough variety of shades.
  • Price: Very expensive. A foundation in this price range should be without fault.
  • It smells like plasticine
  • Dried out my blemish. My make-up looked crusty over the top. Yuck!
  • Tricky to apply because of it’s consistency
  • The cap doesn’t stay on

Would I buy it again? I think the long list of ‘bads’ above answer that question.  I would like to try their foundation for normal skin though.

What do you think?
