Being somewhat addicted myself to LM Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser (the only tinted moisturiser that actually gives a decent level of coverage rather than a thin wash of ‘is it or isn’t it there?’ that I’ve found elsewhere). So its a pretty happy day to discover that Laura Mercier’s latest venture is an Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser that gives skin a flawless, pearly finish. In three shades (when really it needs a 4th, more intense one for those with tanned or darker skin), the formula uses micronized pearls to achieve the dewy glow look. 32 pounds.
At the Laura Mercier press day to showcase autumn/winter make up looks, not only did I have the pleasure of chatting with Laura (a little bit scary, impossibly elegant and with a flawless complexion). She shared her frustration that the new moisturiser isn’t available in more colours – but she’s working on it!
The best item in the collection is the amazing nail lacquer, Caviar Dreams, in metallic grey that changes in tone depending upon the light. Hints of dark green, pink, dark grey and even blues all merge to create a chamelion colour. I’ll post pics as soon as I get them.
