I Tried the New Laura Mercier Foundation and Here’s What Happened

Reading Time: < 1 minute

This product was gifted by Influenster for review. I am always willing to try a new foundation. Here is the new Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation*. I received the shade “Golden”. It is a medium shade with warm undertones. It is currently retailed at the price of $48.00 USD. Here is what I think of it:

The Pros

The foundation is a light-to-medium coverage foundation that is buildable. It works well with a good finishing powder and spray. I have also been gifted a pairing primer that I think is perfect with this product.

The Cons

I was gifted the wrong shade. I would have to mix two shades to make my own shade. When I shade-matched it to my chest, the foundation was too warm for undertones. When I shade-matched it to my face, the foundation was too cool and gave me a pale/ashy look. I needed to contour my face heavily to look like I wasn’t a dead person.

Shade Range

I went to see the shade range in person and it needs some work. It was located at Bluemercury downtown in Savannah. They don’t have the darker shades at this location. There are only 30 shades and only 3 darker shades in their collection. This isn’t enough.

I personally wouldn’t use this exact shade again. I might try another shade to see if they have better undertones. I talk it about it more on my Instagram stories under “Beauty Tests.
