After hearing so many beauty bloggers rave about the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation and even go as far as to say it was their all time favourite, I really had to give it a go. I am the kind of girl who is on a never ending search to find the perfect foundation that will make my skin look flawless. I have very little loyalty to foundations (well maybe a little to Revlon's PhotoReady Foundation) but I am constantly trying new foundations in the hope I will find my holy grail!
Bravely I decided to order this foundation online. After looks of research and lots of goggling for swatches I decided to go with the shade Medium Ivory (which turned out to be a good match). I ordered from Space NK and within a couple of days in was on my door step.
So my thoughts...it is a really nice foundation. It is a full coverage foundation, highly pigmented and covers any blemishes well.
It is a creme foundation so if slightly thicker but does not feel heavy on the skin at all which I like. Although it is very pigmented, I did feel that some days I needed a bit more of this product. A small tube cost £33 so I did feel like I was using up the product quite quickly.
The foundation blends well and does melt into the skin. It leaves a nice luminous glow and makes your skin look flawless. It also has good staying power. I wouldn't say it stayed put all day but still looked alright after several hours of wear.
One of the only things I don't like about this foundation is that across my cheeks and forehead I do feel that sometimes it can look every so slightly cakey. And obviously the price is also a downside.
Overall I think this is a nice foundation and I probably would re-purchase this foundation at some point when I'm not trying out new ones.
