Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation is the new foundation from Laura Mercier which launched this year. I am all about glow when it comes to base makeup, the glowy, dewy skin is my go-to always. I do like Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation which I reviewed in the past here. If you see the packaging of both foundations, the striking difference is the cover of the foundation. The shape and size of the foundation bottle are the same. The bottle of the Flawless fusion ultra-long wear foundation is matte glass with brown cover while the Flawless Lumiere is a glossy shiny bottle with shiny nickel cover. Both foundations feel very lightweight and the coverage is amazing while the major visible difference is the finish.

Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation is a lightweight foundation which gives medium coverage buildable to full coverage. The finish of the foundation is naturally luminous. I use a pump or two of the foundation for a medium coverage which I usually prefer most of the days when I am working. The foundation blends in beautifully into the skin and looks like second skin. It does not look or feels cakey or heavy on my combination skin. It does not accentuate my dry areas on the skin but is hydrating.

The staying time of the foundation is impressive, almost same as the flawless fusion ultra long wear (which has a matte finish). For me, the foundation stays good with a light touch up of powder on my oily areas, which I usually don’t do much, for over 10 hours which I have tested it for. I did not notice any oxidization of the foundation on my skin tone. It lasted well on my skin with or without primer, there was no major difference in the time. My shade is Tawny 4W1.5 which is for medium skin tones having warm undertones.

The foundation applies nicely with a buffing brush, makeup sponge, especially the one newly launched by the brand called Flawless Finish Makeup Sponge which is an s-shaped sponge that is designed to provide an even laydown for flawless application. I have noticed the absorption of the product is pretty less with this makeup sponge.

The shape of this sponge allows easy application of the foundation around the edges of the nose, and apply concealer under eyes smoothly. It can be used for multiple purposes in the makeup application routine after applying foundation with it, to blend concealer, apply powder over concealer or for baking, blending the contour.

Laura Mercier does not need an introduction when it comes to makeup and makeup products, the brand has been loved and trusted for decades. I have three products from the brand which have been on rotation since last few weeks and glad to share with you – Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm, and Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is a multi-tasking product which is lightweight, an essential for everyday use and for a no-makeup look. It has a sheer hint of color and the finish is natural dewy, no doubt why it is an award winner. The moisturizing formula provides a beautiful glow to the skin and is perfect for all skin types, it does not emphasize any dry areas or make my oily areas oilier. Skin looks like skin but a beautiful radiant version of it, more even toned. It can replace foundation if you are looking for a very lightweight sheer hint of color.

The tinted moisturizer stays on well for over 8 hours. The main ingredient for hydration – ‘Sodium hyaluronate hydrates and softens fine lines, dry lines. Broad Spectrum SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen plus a power-blend of antioxidant vitamins C and E help protect skin from the damaging effects of the environment.’ I have shade medium and works well for me. It applies well with fingers, sponge, and even with a makeup brush. Definitely a keeper!

Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm is a 3-in-1 lip color which provides medium to full coverage, balm level comfort, and high shine lip gloss finish. The formula is very smooth and creamy, comfortable to wear, glides on beautifully, keep the lips moisturized plus with color and shine. The lips look and feel supple and natural. The staying power is nice too. I have swatched shade Amaretto Swirl which is a Pink Beige and suitable to most of the skin tones, it is a beautiful nude shade on my lips.

Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara – is a nice mascara, but I do feel it clumps after few hours of application. It gives a nice volume to the lashes. I do like the comb applicator which has a large, firm brush that coats the lashes well with just one swipe. I have this mascara in shade black.

Laura Mercier has a new amazing blush formula called Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion which I have been testing for some time now. The new cheek color is weightless and sheer yet buildable.

Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion

Blush Colour Infusion is described as a sheer, buildable and silky-smooth cheek color that blends seamlessly with the skin for the most natural, fresh look. Pure color pigments feel weightless and apply evenly to the skin for a healthy-looking flush of color that lasts 10 hours. The formula infused with micro-fine powders, this next-generation formula can build from a diffused, sheer hint of color to a bold color statement.

It layers nicely with liquid or powder makeup as it does on bare skin. The shades range from soft neutrals to vivid pops of color, with finishes ranging from matte to a subtle sheen with hidden pearl, to suit a variety of skin tones and skin types.
