Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation Review

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation 

I have recently found myself using the same foundations and base products over and over again mainly because I have some foundations stashed away in my large Malm drawers which is in my bedroom and the rest are in my dresser which is in my spare room/dressing room. I have been using up most products in my dressing table stash but whilst searching for some other beauty items in my Malm drawers a few weeks back I came across the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation, I thought I’d grab it and give it another whirl. I do recall myself not being overly impressed the first time I used it hence why it ended up hidden away for quite some time but I’m actually really glad I reached for it again because I’ve really been enjoying it. 

I think the main reason I popped this back in the drawer first time round was because it was in the middle of Summer and I wasn’t really after the satin finish it was giving me, in the Summer I’m all about dewy and glowing skin so that was enough to put me off the foundation for a little while. I also found that it did cling to dry patches a little and with my skin being combination I do often get the dry patch here and there, again I think that’s just to do with the finish of the foundation to be honest. That being said as mentioned I have been loving it lately, I have got around the slight cling to dry patches by wearing a heavy duty moisturiser and I have to say I have been loving it ever since. 

The consistency of this foundation is quite thick and less is definitely more as it’s super pigmented, despite it being quite thick once applied to the skin it feels weightless and really looks like skin. I apply this with a buffing brush and add a pea sized amount onto my skin, I then buff in for the most seamless and natural finish. The cover is also fantastic but again doesn’t look cakey or too thick, I’d say this is a medium to full cover foundation so if that’s what your looking for I’d definitely recommend. 

What impressed me the most about this foundation and something I really noticed was how long lasting it is, recently I have found myself feeling a looking a little patchy after a long day at work… I just thought oh it’s probably the air conditioning and lack of touch ups throughout the day but now I realise it’s just the foundations I was using. Since using Silk Creme I have found that I don’t really need to touch up throughout the day, and it lasts a full 9-10 hours without looking patchy at all. I’m super impressed with this and have had so many compliments since changing up my foundation routine, huge thumbs up from me.
