When the beauty magazines and makeup mavens all agree that a product is fantastic, the best, the MOST-AMAZING-EVER, I get very skeptical. I’ve been burned before by products everyone else thought was awesome (Proactiv, DiorShow, Kiehl’s lip balm), s glowing recommendations always make me a bit nervous.
This is why it took me so long to try Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer.
Last week, my Mom and I went to the Nordstrom beauty counter for a little retail therapy while my Dad shopped for suits. My Mom has struggled to find a foundation that doesn’t settle into fine lines, so we headed over to the Laura Mercier counter to try something new. And let me tell you what, after the man at the cosmetics counter worked his magic, my Mother’s skin was so fresh and vibrant looking that it made her look ten years younger.
I was so impressed that last night, I purchased Laura Mercier’s Flawless Face Kit from Sephora just so I can have gorgeous skin like my Mom’s.
The kit is a great value at $65 because it contains everything you need to get started: primer, tinted moisturizer, under-eye corrector, concealer, translucent pressed powder, and all the tools that you need to ensure proper application.
Mercier also lets you choose the kit that is best for your skin type. The regular kit moisturizes dry skin, while the oil-free kit is best for acne prone skin like mine. And if there are any mineral makeup fans in the house, she has a mineral formula just for you.
Frankly, I think this product is perfect for the unpredictable, wet, humid weather that plagues Washington, D.C. And if you need any tips on how to apply the makeup properly in order to achieve the Laura Mercier Flawless Face, she has that all on her website.
