NEW Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Perfector SPF 30 Pearl Review
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 more “skin loving” ingredients. Below you will find a first impressions 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.
Products In Talk: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Laura Mercier Radiance Primer
Truth be told, I actually was shocked with 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 smiles 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 pull back 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.
Overall I am satisfied, because I like the look of sheer base, spot coverage, but for the price-tag, do consider the draw backs.
DISCLAIMER: Influenster, and Laura Mercier SENT ME A COLLECTION OF PRODUCTS TO USE, BUT PRESENTED THEM AS GOODIES. THEY DID NOT PAY ME FOR A REVIEW. THEY DID NOT PAY ME TO TAKE PHOTOS. THEY DID NOT PROMISE A REPOST AT ALL.
INFLUENSTER, SENT ME PRODUCT IN EXCHANGE FOR A SEPHORA, AND ULTA REVIEW. THE INSTAGRAM POST, WAS UNSPONSORED, NOT PAID, AND OPTIONAL. THESE OPINIONS AND RESULTS ARE SOLEY MY OWN AND ARE INFLUENCED BY IF THE PRODUCT REALLY WORKS.
CRUELTY FREE- You guy’s know I have 1Change4Change, which is where I believe only ONE CHANGE, or one person more aware, can make an impact. Sometimes I show products not cruelty free, because I cannot find a replacement for it generally, OR because you Jeaniez still are subscribed to a beauty channel, and want to see the newest products. I am not a protester, I am someone who nudges change, slowly. I also an pretty unbiased with products, for unless they cause literal harm.
