Laura Mercier Flawless Face Collection Review

Laura Mercier’s amazing Flawless Face makeup collection, is comprised of  four pieces that can be used together or separately to create a truly Flawless Face.

My face has been giving me grief lately and I’m amazed how great my skin looks after using the Flawless Face collection. The best feature is that it doesn’t mask my skin with heavy makeup it simply diminishes the flaws and enhances my skin leaving the perfect canvas.

 

Foundation Primer – a clear gel it comes in five different formulas primes the face for longer lasting foundation.

Foundation Powder- Laura Mercier Foundation Powder is a wet/dry powder formulation that contains oil control ingredients to hinder shine.

Secret Camouflage – a palette containing two oil-free, long wearing concealers colors that you blend together to create your perfect shade.

Invisible Loose Setting Powder – a translucent oil-free and talc-free loose powder with a soft focus finish.

STEP 1: prime the skin – Foundation Primer

This is by far the best makeup foundation I’ve used. It glides on light  and dries quickly leaving my skin perfectly matte. I’m amazed at how well it hides my pores,  keeps the shine away all day. If I am in a rush a little primer and loose powder and my skin is perfected and I’m ready to go.

STEP 2: apply foundation – Foundation Powder

I usually stay away from powder foundations as I find they settle in my pores and wrinkles. Laura Mercier’s Foundation Powder is light and buildable and never “settled” into my pores. Just the tiniest bit smooths out my entire complexion and leaves my skin looking so great. This formula can be used wet or dry and it lasts forever, love makeup that keeps my skin looking great past lunch!

 

 

STEP 3: conceal – Secret Camouflage

Secret Camouflage comes in two shades  to create custom blending options just mix a bit on the back of your hand until the shade matches your skin tone. With a few strokes  my blemishes were nearly invisible. The color blending helped conceal my imperfections without looking “made up”.

STEP 4: set with powder – Loose Setting Powder

If you are constantly at war with your pores, Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder is your new best friend. A sheer powder it masks my pores and leaves my skin oil free. One of my favorite items it really creates a flawless look, and doesn’t distort the color of my makeup.

 

 

 

Availability: Laura Mercier’s website, Sephora

Pricing: Foundation Primer is $30.00, Foundation Powder is $40.00, Secret Camouflage is $28.00, Invisible Loose Setting Powder is $30.00.
