Review | Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation

I mentioned in my April favourites post here that I have recently bought, and been loving the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation and I bought mine for £33 from John Lewis online but you can pick it up from SpaceNk and other places also. Why did I buy it? I am a foundation addict and always looking for the next best thing, and also I have read so many good things about it. 

I like the packaging of this product as there is no chance of it smashing or cracking in your make-up bag, as it is plastic and its pretty compact and a good size. I don't,however, like the price £33(?) that is so much money although, because this foundation has such high pigmentation you only need the smallest amount so if you think of it that was, the £33 product is going to last you a really long time. The shade I have is Medium Ivory it is a little tanned for me I could probably go a shade lighter, but as we are now approaching spring/summer (finally) here in the UK I suppose I can get away with it until the colder months come back round. 
As I mentioned before this product has some really good rave reviews, and so it should. It is a cream textured foundation and last all day on my skin. Usually I get home from work and think 'have I really looked like this all day' but with this one I looked in the mirror and was shocked that  it had lasted so well. Also I have noticed that it doesn't come off on clothes. I don't know about you guys but I have a habit of getting make-up all on the cuff of my sleeves, with the exception of this foundation, I just haven't found that. 
I like the dewy finish of this foundation as it makes my skin look really nice and healthy and completely flawless. It covers a few minor imperfections, but if you have got some big-ass white heads then you may find you need to conceal a little, like myself. I like to apply like by dotting it all my face and then buffing it in using a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or Buffing Brush (review here).

Have you tried this foundation? What do you think? 


  1. Eventually I will invest in Laura Mercier products. Soo expensive but i'd say its worth the price x
