Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation
best foundation ever
I love this foundation. It has great coverage and is the right colour for my skin tone. I buy 2 tubes a year. In the summer, I mix it with the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser. I sometimes apply the tinted moisturiser and then use some of this foundation on areas that need more coverage.
I initially bought the foundation in a shop to ensure I got the correct colour. Now I just buy it online through John Lewis as it is easy to collect from my local Waitrose.

This amazing foundation has exceptional qualities. It is the only one that I have ever used that provides significant coverage without looking cakey and exaggerating wrinkles. Instead it gives a beautiful, luminous finish which does not settle into lines and pores, plus stays like that all day - and at my age, believe me, I must have tried them all out there! Without doubt the best foundation ever, I never thought my skin could look this good at my age. Bravo Laura Mercier - SUPERB.

I bought this foundation a shade or so darker than I normally would hoping it would be better when I have a tan. The colour I bought was hazelnut beige and was the darkest shade they stock. It actually matched my medium skin tone quite well. I have quite oily skin but this foundation seemed to make it even more oily! If that's even possible. Unless it just accentuated the oilyness. I had to use a flat foundation brush (Mac 190) because its too thick to use a stippling brush (Mac 187). I tried powdering my face, not powdering my face, using Mac Fix+ and even powdering my face and then using Mac Fix+ but nothing I used could get this foundation to stay on my skin. At first it would look okay, the finish was a little dull but it wasn't awful, but i noticed within an hour my face would start looking oily and then it would start oxidising and looking orange and then it got to the point of being oily, orange and patchy all within around 3 hours! I felt embarrassed to wear this foundation! It also made me break out quite badly too.
