Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer | Review + Lusts

 I think it's pretty safe to say that I am going through a Laura Mercier phase. Every time I pass by one of their counters, I cannot help myself but to take a look - and lust - and add perhaps a bit too many things to my wishlist (I have a page devoted to just Laura Mercier things in my notebook).

Along with my Laura Mercier obsession, I've also been watching a bit too many ViviannaDoesMakeup videos on YouTube recently, and she adores this tinted moisturizer. In my head (oh so full of thoughts), I figured "why not pick up a sample?" Off a went to the Laura Mercier counter...five days later, I purchased. 

Enough with the ramble - now on to the actual review. When I first tried this, I wasn't so into it. In fact, I hated it, but "hate" is a strong word. A few days later and a bit of a skincare shakeup and I decided to try it again - it was love with first (well, more like second) application.

With just the right amount of coverage and a luminous, dewy - yet still natural knowing me - finish, I cannot say enough good things about this tinted moisturizer. I purchased the oil free version for my not so oily, but, more often than not, shiny face. I find it keeps shine at bay even without the use of a powder - a win, win, eh?

Overall, I think this is an amazing, amazing choice. If you're a consistent reader of the blog, then you'll know that I swapped out the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation for this babe. Surprised? Don't be. The tinted moisturizer thing just seems to float my boat a bit more.

I know this picture (below) may look a bit pointless, but my point was to show how well it blends. You can't see it! My point exactly.

Lastly, to round out this whole rambly post - a few Laura Mercier bits I have my eyes on...
Second-Skin Cheek Color in Peach Whisper
Metallic Crème Eye Color in Rose Gold
Lip Glacé

Whew! Well, that was rambly post - but rightfully so for a product this great! If you have any questions, as always, leave them below. Are there any more Laura Mercier products I should try?
