Laura Mercier | Silk Creme Foundation

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well! Todays post is going to be on the much coveted products - Laura Mercier's Silk Creme Foundation. I have seen lots of beauty gurus rave about this foundation and i'd had my eye on it for the longest time, so thought it was only appropriate i finally took the plunge and did a review for you all :) A few posts ago i did do a review of one of my new favorite lipsticks by Laura Mercier so if you'd like to take a peek at that you can do so by clicking HERE :) 

Laura Mercier's Silk Creme Foundation is an innovative full coverage foundation that makes the skin look flawless and super luminous. The combination of special collection silk proteins, tea extracts and treated mica have formed a luxurious formula that leaves your skin hydrated and protected with a radiant and timeless glow. What more could you want from a foundation?! :D


The foundation has a light whipped formula which provides you with a medium to full coverage without it feeling heavy or cakey on the skin. You seriously need the tiniest amount of this foundation to do your entire face, i know right, how amazing?! I thought this was absolutely astonishing as in some cases from my other favorite foundations such as Chanel, Urban Decay or Rimmel i need to use a whole pump for my entire face and in some cases a little bit more for those pesky hard to cover areas. 
All blemishes, uneven skintone and my dark circles disappeared immediately. It seriously makes your skin look incredibly healthy and full of dewy glow just like the celebrities on the red carpet. 

The texture is a creamy mouse that blends extremely well, which i love because the formula is easy to work with. I love applying this foundation with either my Real Techniques Stippling Blush or Expert Face Brush as in my opinion they help work the foundation into my skin for an airbrushed finish. 

Packaging wise, just like the lipstick i feel it is very modern and stylish. The overall brand packaging is very simple but has so much sophistication. For this particular foundation the squeeze tube is something i havent really seen before from a foundation, so it's definitely a unique aspect. You also have a lot of control on how much product your using which i love because sometimes i can go a tad crazy!

Shading wise i got matched up really quick and easily. I did opt for a shade which is slightly darker than my skin tone because i do prefer applying something that is not my perfect match as it makes me look more alive and not like a walking zombie haha. The Silk Creme Foundations have yellow undertones systems which help the product achieve the overall flawless complexion as it helps iliminate any redness on the skin. The only issue regarding shade is that their are not that many to choose from, after looking on the website i can see that there is only 10 available shades. I picked up 'Cashew Beige' which is the second from darkest shade they offer. So you might not find the perfect shade for you. 

I am really picky when it comes to foundation as i've tried near enough every single one on the market. If my complexion looks flawless then it creates the perfect base for the rest of my makeup, and lets face it, you feel great when you skin looks incredible. I would definitely recommend this foundation and i can see it becoming a staple piece in my Summer makeup bag this year. I have fallen in love with the overall brand, the lipsticks and foundation is amazing and i can't wait to try out some more products. 

I'd love to know your thoughts on this foundation and if you've tried it out. Also if you would recommend anything else to me :D i love discovering new products to try out. 

If you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to contact me through twitter, email or my leaving a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i read every single comment! 

Lots Of Love

  18. I have two favourite foundations, Nars Sheer Glow and this. I love how you barely have to use any to get great coverage and a totally flawless look. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat, and probably get a primer, concealer and powder to go along with it :-)

  21. I've been wanting to try this for the longest time and you might have just convinced me to take the plunge. My main concern was the price but if you have to use so little, it should be worth it :)

  30. I love this foundation! Got it in the same colour as you :) I have yet to find a LM product I wouldn't recommend. I really like their concealers (the secret camouflage one is great)as well as their secret brightening powder. And I'd also recommed their mosaic shimmer blocs, they are a lot like the shimmer bricks from Bobbi Brown love using them as a highlight or ontop of blush xxx
