Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation-Review

Here are my thoughts on the Laura Mercier Foundation.  I think this is a great foundation for normal skin.  I have combo normal to oily skin so I'm always on the lookout for a foundation that absorbs oil and is long wearing.  For me this foundation is a very nice foundation for the first few hours and after that it turns into an oily mess.  Its a bit expensive at $42.00.  There are 12 shades.  I am in Sunny Beige.  It comes in a glass bottle and it comes with a pump which is very convenient and very sanitary.  It blends very nicely and consistency is a thin liquid.  I think this is a medium coverage foundation with a satin finish.  It does however take a long time to dry so it feels a little masky on the skin.  When it finally does dry it looks a little cakey in areas, which is why I don't think it would be good for dry skin.  This is not a long wearing foundation.  This foundation has kaolin clay, which is used in most beauty masks, it evens out skin tone and makes me skin look amazing when I take my makeup off which is like having a treatment on your face during the day.  So this foundation is great if you have normal skin, looking for a medium coverage and you are looking to improve the condition of your skin.

Great review! I've been thinking about picking this one up and after hearing how great your face feels when you take it off I might finally give it a go.
