Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

Even though I’ve written about the tinted moisturizer from Laura Mercier before, I’ve never written a full review, so here we go. I really like this tinted moisturizer – it’s sheer, very lightweight as well as it gives a little bit of coverage and evens out the skintone. It definitely gives your skin that healthy glow and a natural, dewy finish, which the product is promised to do.

It comes in a 40 ml tube and has SPF 20 in it which is great for summer holidays. However, the SPF is definitely a plus, but I don’t rely on it if I’m going into the sun for a long time. I use the shade Nude and it blends perfectly with my skin and it lasts for hours. The skin looks really nice and you do not look like you’re wearing anything.

I would highly recommend this product for  those that are looking for a makeup look that is more suited for summer time. Less is more, especially in summer. It gives minor coverage and evens out the skintone. I use it over my regular moisturizer and eye cream.

This is definitely a pricey product, but a little goes a long way so the producy last for a long time. The only thing I don’t like is the opening of the product, for some reason it gets really messy. Every time I twist the lid open, it’s messy in there. Another thing is that it doesn’t seem to agree with air travel and the pressure that comes along with it. I travel quite frequently and the tube seem to “explode” a bit each time, not fully in the sense that the tube is broken, but once you open it upon arrival, quite a big amount of the product is inside the lid.

Still, other than that I really like the product and will repurchase unless I find another tinted moisturizer I like better. The tinted moisturizer from La Roche Posay is definitely a very good (and less expensive) product, but I find the colors at LM a bit better suited for my skintone.

What is your favorite tinted moisturizer? Did you try this one from Laura Mercier? :)

    Oh, this one is my favorite as well! I love it so much ( but I totally agree with you about the packaging). I would also love to try the new tinted moisturizer from NARS.

    Oh, I’m still searching for the ‘perfect’ TM for me… It isn’t easy to find the right one, I’ve tried a lot. The most ones are too oily for my skin and the shades are too dark. :( I’ll have a look at this from Laura Mercier at the counter! Thank you very much for your review.
    Have a nice day :)

      You should check out Laura Mercier’s oil free tinted moisturizer, it might be better suited for your skin.
      Good luck and have a nice day! ;)

    I use this all the time, it is definitely one of my favorite products… in the world! :) Have you tried the oil-free version? I prefer that slightly more but I use both, love this product so much. Thanks for the review, Hanne!

    I’ve wanted this tinted moisturizer for ages but now I’m really interested in the new NARS one. But this is classic! :)

      Yes, LM is definitely the classic, but I’ve heard the new one from Nars is great too! :)

    Love the review. I adore this product, Its pretty much my every day go-to base.

    I find that if you hold it upside down and squeeze the product upwards and swipe it off with your finger it stops getting messy. I’m not sure why, maybe because it doesn’t let air back into the tube. I’ve been doing that though and no more product all over the inside of the cap – awesome. I haven’t taken it travelling yet though and I can’t imagine even that will stop it messing then!

    Love your blog, its beautiful :) xo

    Jeg har denne fra LM og den nye fra NARS. Jeg liker begge, men foretrekker nok den fra NARS. Huden blir så glødende og den dekker litt mer enn LM.
    I tillegg liker jeg tuben til NARS mye bedre enn LM. Irriterende at den alltid lekker på fly.

      Ja det er veldig irriterende at LM er vanskelig å reise med, syns jo ikke noe om å søle så mye produkt når den koster ganske mye. Skal definitivt sjekke ut NARS, har hørt veldig mye bra om den! :)


    I love that moisturizer! I’ve used it before! But have you tried Revision tinted moisturizer with SPF 45? I noticed it withstands humidity better and you get better protection. Plus, it comes in original and a matte finish formula (my favorite) that makes your skin look flawless! carries it at a great price too! :) XO
