I blogged about Laura Mercier Oil-free Tinted Moisturizer in my very first year of BBJ (2006). I used it for a good two years straight, then became dazzled by other brands’ various and sundry moisturizers and foundations and became totally promiscuous (skin care/base-wise) and promptly forgot about it. It was all very Lon Hammond and Allie Hamilton. And then I rediscovered it a full five years later and had full on Noah and Allie in the rain moment about it. Because, Laura Mercier Oil-free Tinted Moisturizer? It wasn’t over. IT STILL ISN’T OVER. To quote Noah.
I’m deeply into the Caramel hue, which I thought would be way too dark for me, but actually blends well and imparts a believable tan while evening my skin tone PERFECTLY and hydrating with a touch of SPF. Buy it at sephora.com for $43 and figure out how to accept the glowy-skin compliments graciously as they’ll be hurled your way in the manner of badly raised bloggers at gift bags.
In addition to Laura Mercier’s old favorites, you’ll also want to get involved with some new ones of hers–and they’re for a good cause. In recognition of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Laura Mercier will donate 100% of the profits from the sale of two products – Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette and Rose Hope Lip Glacé – to the Fund in September. This cause is very near and dear to the hearts of Laura Mercier, and the company’s President and CEO, Claudia Poccia. Both women have been personally touched by the disease – Laura through a dear friend, and Claudia through her sister.
Bonne Mine Crème Colour Palette ($48)
Lip Glace in Rose Hope: $24
Both are available at sephora.com.
