Review: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Creme Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 20

Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer has a huge following.  That’s why I was so interested when I saw it in compact form at Sephora.  I had to pick it up right away and give it a go.

The compact has a good weight to it and a nice mirror. It has a bulkier package, which reminds me of Physician’s Formula compact packaging.  I would have liked it to be a little sleeker, but its not horribly cumbersome either.  It has a compartment underneath the mositurizer that holds a nice applicator sponge.  This is a great concept for traveling with a tinted moisturizer, although I’m slightly concerned that it could melt if left in a hot car on a summer day.

The product itself feels velvety to the touch.  The biggest problem with this is that you can feel it after you apply it to the skin.  Its moistuizing, but feels like it sits on top your skin.  I could feel it all day. It has little to no coverage, which I expect from a tinted moisturizer. My main gripe is that I don’t expect to be able to feel a tinted moisturizer on my skin. For this reason this was a fail for me.

Have you tried it?  If so, what did you think?



I purchased these products myself and as always, these are my own, honest opinions.
