I’ve always had a soft spot for Laura Mercier.
One of the first luxury foundations I ever purchased was the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation and it still remains one of my favourites. I haven’t used it in a number of years since I have so many foundations now, but it’s forever held a spot near and dear in my heart.
Because of this, whenever the brand releases a new foundation I always get so excited to try it out.
Launched earlier this year, Laura Mercier came out with the Flawless Lumiere Radiance Perfecting Foundation (C$60), which is a liquid foundation that promises up to 15 hours of hydration and weightless medium-to-full coverage.
Available in 30 shades, this foundation leaves you with a glowy finish that covers up any imperfections and blemishes, leaving your skin looking flawless. The formula contains Super Crystal Clear Pearl, which is a light-reflecting effect, as well as silver ear mushroom extract to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and vitamin C to reveal brighter, calmer, and more even-toned skin.
I received the shade Bisque, which was also the colour I used in Silk Creme and it fits my summer skin nicely. I love it so much that I actually packed it for New York as it leaves my skin looking radiant and provides a smooth canvas for the rest of my makeup. If you love Silk Creme, then I would definitely look into this one as well. The texture is very lightweight, it doesn’t feel heavy, and your skin feels like it can breathe. All major wins if you ask me.
If I had to choose between this one and Silk Creme, I would probably go with her new one since from what I can remember of Silk Creme, Flawless Lumiere is more lightweight on the skin and gives you a similar finish. I also want to note that there are more shade options in the Flawless Lumiere Radiance Perfecting Foundation than Silk Creme, so if you had trouble matching your skin to a certain colour, then this one is definitely the way to go.
