Laura Mercier has a good reputation on producing good liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers. I've always preferred using liquid foundations and never got the chance to try a lot of tinted moisturizers until Laura Mercier. This product won the hearts of a lot of beauty bloggers and received several of awards. Naturally, I got intrigued and went Rustans to purchase it. :)
"A perfect blend of skincare and makeup that hydrates skin and softens fine lines with a sheer hint of colour for a healthy, dewy glow. Laura Mercier created this product to give skin a healthy ‘no-makeup’ look with a soft hint of colour that evens and enhances without hiding the skin. This lightweight formula provides ideal protection from the sun’s harmful, damaging rays with broad spectrum SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen. Perfect for all skin types, including sensitive.

The packaging is a simple taupe colored tube, which is good because it has a thin consistency, and you need control in getting the product cleanly from the tube. The texture is like silk on your skin, its not greasy, and it is easy to blend. It feels really light that it is almost like you are not wearing any make up. It's very hydrating and you feel moisturize for a long time. I use it mainly when the weather is cold and I need extra moisturizing or when I want something light and minimal coverage on my face.
It slightly evens out your skin tone and gives it a very natural healthy glow. It is important that you use a face powder to set this product because it can become oily in time, especially if the weather is hot and humid. Also, you are definitely going to have to use concealer if you need to cover up blemishes, scars, and dark circles around the eyes.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Nude
This product is a great tinted moisturizer. It fulfills its purpose of hydrating your face and giving it a sheer tint of a natural healthy glowing skin. It is definitely good for people who have dry skin like me. And perfect for those who have a great skin tone to begin with and don't really need much coverage.
