Laura Mercier Flawless Face primer, tinted moisturizer, concealer and powder

Laura Mercier has four products that can help you achieve your best flawless face yet. The products were designed to enhance your natural beauty rather than cover it so I was VERY excited to give them a try since I don’t usually wear heavy makeup – so this seemed right up my alley. The products are applied in four steps and here are my thoughts on how they worked:

Step 1 – Foundation Primer – This primer applies smoothly on to the skin clearly with an airy feel to it. Upon application the primer is almost instantly absorbed into my skin, it really felt refreshing. I always like to wait a minute or so between applying each product to make sure that it’s fully absorbed.  And after a few minutes I felt my face and it did not feel sticky or tacky. It also looked and felt noticeable smoother.

Step 2 – Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 20 – I like my makeup to look as natural as possible and this tinted moisturizer is perfect for that. It’s very sheer but you can build the color for more coverage. It also contains SPF 20 which is excellent for protecting your skin again sun damage, I love that this is a double duty product! Since I only use foundations and bronzer for just a bit of coverage I only applied the tinted moisturizer to my forehead, cheeks and chin area and it actually looks more flattering than applying the product all over the face.

Step 3 – Secret Camouflage – This pigmented high coverage concealer is designed to give you the perfect custom color by blending the concealers on the back of your hand. This palette comes in six shades and I tested SC-5 which worked well for my complexion. The Secret Camouflage is lightweight but I found it to be a tad bit drying as the concealer settled in the fine lines underneath my eyes. I do love that this palette offers a blendable option because if you get a tan you don’t need to purchase another concealer! I just wish that it hydrated a bit more.

Step 4 – Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Me and my translucent powder are BFF’s, if you have oily skin like me then I’m sure that you can relate. This powder has no color pigment so it will not affect the color of your makeup, just major shine control. The one problem that I have with loose powders is that they are so messy! This is not the type of product that you can just throw in your bag,  I did and it wasn’t pleasant when I opened the jar.

Overall I absolutely loved how my makeup looked, my pores looked noticeably smaller, my blemishes were faded and my skin had a healthy glow – all without a heavy makeup look. Have any of your ladies tried these flawless face products?

Laura believes there are four steps to create a flawless face—primer, foundation, concealer, and setting powder. Each product has been specifically developed to allow every woman to achieve an incredibly even, smooth, yet natural-looking complexion.
