My Face Today: Testing out Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation!

I received a message on formspring a few days ago asking if I’ve tried Laura Mercier’s Silk Creme Foundation & what my thoughts were about it. Well, I actually haven’t tried any Laura Mercier products, but decided to give myself an excuse to go to Sephora and pick up a sample of the foundation. I didn’t do any prior research of what my shade would be, but with a little swatching, I decided on Bamboo Beige, which seems to be a pretty good NC30 match. The Sales Associate gave me a pretty nice sample that should last me a full week, possibly more. Today is my first day wearing it, and so far I think it’s great. It actually seems like a spinning image of MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation. I’ll give you a full review on it soon!
Sample of Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation – Bamboo Beige
I used my Dior Crush Glow palette (I posted about here) for today’s look, and I’ve actually been using it just about every day as my “go-to” product. It’s just so convenient that all of the shades go so well together and the palette is fairly small and lightweight. I actually think I’m going to start investing more in Dior quints rather than any other brand of shadows. Although I love MAC, I’m over the obsession of owning so many eye shadows. I just don’t use them enough, with the exception of a small handful.

Oh! Also you may notice I’m sporting a little colour, which I’ve been lacking lately. I purchased Clarins Intense Bronze Self Tanning Tint to use daily on my face. Day two, and no breakouts.. so I’m being very hopeful! A review for it coming up soon…

  1. OMGOSH, I have been using this foundation for a long time! I have recommended it to so many people. The thing about this foundation is that it feels light but has full coverage – LOVE. It comes in a small tube, however it lasts for a long time. I found though that I had to go darker for this foundation than I usually go because her shades start out so light! This is one of my absolute FAVORITE foundations and I am so happy you tried it out!!!


  2. I am loving laura mercier lately, it's my new fave brand. I tried the silk creme, but turns out that I returned it because couldn't justify having spent that much on something that wasn't quite my right colour. It was nice though, maybe if I was tanner.


  3. Laura Mercier's Silk Creme is such a wonderful product, and its so concentrated that it should be stippled on with a sponge, not a brush, or else it just sits on top of the skin and doesn't look natural. Just FYI. You look gorgeous! 🙂
