I (Brooke) have been using Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation for a few years now, so I was thrilled when they recently came out with Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide. I love the Silk Crème Foundation but sometimes felt it was a bit heavy for daytime use. We were lucky enough to meet with a global ambassador for the brand, Jerry, in New York City, and he taught us all about the new formula. The Flawless Fluide is a lightweight oil-free formula that really blurs the line between real skin and makeup. Jerry said, “It wears like a second skin,” and he’s right. It really does. I have been wearing this foundation daily, and it feels so great on my skin – not heavy or cakey at all. To find the best shade for your skin, he suggests you visit your local Laura counter for help from a pro and always test the color on your face instead of your hand (seems like common sense, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tested products on my hand). The best way to apply the Flawless Fluide is: shake for 10 seconds, then tap a few times on the counter to get the best result (you’ll see it’s not like a normal foundation). Since it has build-able coverage, it’s always best not to overdo it. It’s much easier to add than to remove ;). Instead of “wiping” the foundation on your face, apply with a foundation brush or sponge in a stippling motion around your face – this will give you the best results. The steps to achieve a flawless face are: prime the skin (this is my favorite primer – it is luminous and really gives you that “glow”), apply foundation, conceal, and set with powder.
Absolutely love the Lip Glacè– I’m wearing “Pink Pop.”
After Jerry worked his magic on us!
TheFoundation Primer has been a game-changer for my (Meggan) skin! It is so lightweight and finishes with a healthy glow. It works well under the Flawless Fluide Foundation but it also looks amazing alone, especially for daytime! It goes on smoothly and lasts all day – no wonder it’s sold every 27 seconds! This is a great product for women who don’t like the feel of foundation but want all-over coverage. Also, a lot of you always ask about my lip gloss on Instagram – I mix my two Laura Mercier favorites “Pink Pop” and “Bare Baby”. They look great mixed or worn alone! I’m seriously addicted to it – my boyfriend will vouch for that!
It’s easy to see why we are big fans of Laura Mercier. Be sure to stay tuned for an upcoming Instagram contest (begins October 14th)!
