During the day I prefer minimal foundation, I feel like regular foundation looks cakey on me. So I usually just stick to a light BB cream or tinted moisturizer in liquid form for the day. For night this compact is the perfect middle ground between powder foundation and tinted moisturizer. It provides more coverage for an even look but helps me avoid the cakey look and feeling that I loathe. And it lasts! I don't have to reapply because the coverage stays put. Absolutely love this product!
Love this tinted moisturizer
I am obsessed with tinted moisturizers and BB creams and love that this one is a compact. It is so convenient to keep in your purse and this also has very good coverage. Unlike many other tinted moisturizers that are very light on their coverage and more sheer, this one is more like a foundation. So it is perfect if you are looking for a tinted moisturizer that is more like a foundation.
Great coverage and protection
I love the great coverage AND sun protection that this product provides. It is easy to apply and helps my skin look great. I will be purchasing it again.
I have used all different tinted moisturizers, BB Creams, and CC Creams, this is BY FAR the BEST! It feels so light on the skin and it stays put through out the day. Great coverage that is build-able for those problem spots. This is definitely one of the best beauty products on the market. I highly recommend it!
Much To Like!
The compact itself and the solid texture of the product make this perfect for carrying at all times (yes, there's a sponge for application!) It is great for touch-ups or just to have on-hand should you decide it's a make-up day after all, no mess or finishing powder necessary like with liquid versions! The "Blush" color matches my light skin, and covers redness associated with rosacea well ( I don't have to use a lot of product for the most part, and it's easy to sponge an extra bit on my often cherry red cheeks.) The downside is that it's not ultra moisturizing, so except on great-skin days, dry/flaky patches show under the application which exaggerates the issue in my opinion- if I don't have time for meticulous exfoliation, I skip this product. The compact mirror is still worth packing the weight in my bag!
This is a nice product to alternate with. The product is a little thick and doesn't work like a tinted moisturizer normally does. I don't love it.
This moisturizer is great if you are looking for something natural looking and feeling. It is lightweight, which I love.
A lovely product, but I'll buy the tube next time
Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer is a great product - evens the skin while hydrating, not heavy and doesn't cake up. This compact though, is a little bulky, and I realize after purchasing it that the same amount of money would garner a tube with 10x the amount of product. While the compact is nice for on the go touchups, next time I'll buy the tube to restock.
Love this product
I love this product. It stays on skin for long hours. I put it on in the morning and don't retouch until late afternoon.
Liked the concept, disliked the sample shade
I really wanted to use this sample. The sample size compact was great and it went on smoothly. Sadly the shade was far too dark for my complexion.
