Beauty Product Review: Laura Mercier -Tinted Moisturizer

Hi Beauties!

Dopeness: Source

I recently went into Sephora because I won a gift card at work and it had been sitting in my purse for almost a month (I know, I’m tripping right? lol). 

Well, I went in thinking I would treat myself to something that I haven’t really invested in before. My roommate always talks about this Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and raves about how she uses nothing else but it (Shout out to Monica! lol). I wanted to know what all the hype was about, so I decided to give it a shot! Her face is always naturally glowing and moisturized, and I wanted to achieve that look.

The product was a little hard to find in that massive Sephora, so one of the sales associates helped me out. (She even applied the moisturizer for me and told me about all the benefits of using a moisturizer daily). 

She had me sold instantly.

Here is the product description, according to

“This lightweight foundation that can be reapplied as necessary, offers sun protection for sensitive or acne prone skin, oil control, and provides hydration to prevent dryness.”

I love that this product provides adequate coverage while simultaneously providing moisture and oil control for my skin. 

It gives my skin a natural glow and I love that it feels like butter going on. I literally apply this moisturizer with my fingers and it goes on easy and smooth! My face is left feeling extremely soft. What I love most about this product is that I  get that dewy, bronzy natural glow look that I love oh so much!

The only con that I can think of  for this product is of course the price. It’s about $42 and comes in a squeeze tube that’s less than impressive (40ml tube). However, if you want a high quality moisturize you’re going to have to pay a less than stellar price for it.

I presume that this product should last me quite some time. I don’t wear it everyday, because I always forget to. It’s a great value if you plan on using it only a few times a week. If you’re using it everyday and applying it for full coverage, you might go through a few of these tubes in a year ;-/

I do love this product the few times that I’ve used it. However, I have gotten one pimple since first using it, which is  very rare for my skin because I rarely break out. The record is still out on if there is a direct correlation with my pimple and the application of the product! lol 

Would I buy this product again? Yes

That’s all beauties!
