I have been hearing so much about Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer, that I finally hunted it down and found a small shop in Singapore selling it.
I brought my best friend along, and we both tried some on, and immediately went insane – our skin looked absolutely flawless. Safe to say, we both came home with a bottle, with me choosing the oil-free version. (Too bad that it was marked up so much at that time, that it cost almost S$90! Thankfully, now it’s more easily accessible – online, at Sephora, etc, and is way cheaper.)
I’m so obsessed. What I love about it is what the company said themselves: it is sheer, lightweight and gives a beautiful, natural look. I also love how it stays on all day and the SPF is, of course, a big bonus. However, for those with acne prone and oily skin, keep in mind that this base gives a somewhat dewy look, which can change to ‘oily’ after awhile, (especially in Singapore), so it’s probably best to apply a layer of loose powder over it.
In conclusion, I highly recommend Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, especially the oil-free version. There’s nothing more to say, really. It’s a hall of fame product for me already, and it seems to be reaching cult-status in the industry too, so it’s a must try – at least once!
