Lillee Jean Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Perfector SPF 30 Pearl Review 2019
Hey there Jeaniez! Today I test demo’d a whole lotta Laura Mercier items, including the new Tinted Moisturizer, reformulated! The key points here are the product is $1.00 more, has more SPF, and has more “skin-loving” ingredients. Below you will find a first impression and review of the product, along with the Radiance Primer, which I used as a face base, on only ONE side of my face, to see if it made any difference.
Truth be told, I actually was shocked by the Tinted Moisturizer! The finish is creamy, and smooth, and truly did glide over dry patches I might have had. In other words, the formula did NOT emphasize any patches, which was an epic start. The color Pearl is a good neutral match, although it did oxidize a SUPER TINY bit — nothing extreme. Think, from pale to a bit yellow. I found that after 2 hours of wear, and during a ton of talking for other videos I recorded, the product did crease in expression lines. Around my forehead, between my eyebrows, and my smile lines, there was creasing, which I find weird for a tinted product.
The good news is somehow my skin still looked like “skin”, and “movable”, if that makes sense. I feel the product is hydrating, not necessarily dewy on my skin. Even some of my freckles shined through! One major pullback is you will need concealer with this — it DOES NOT cover even the tiniest bit of redness…you’d have to have near-flawless skin, to begin with. Even with the Radiance Primer which bunched up on me…it was sheer. I had to use my Laura Mercier Fusion Concealer in 1N, which did the trick, and looked so flawless, but the point is there was no coverage.
