I am a makeup fanatic, I love makeup, and many people state I should be a makeup artist-the one downfall has always been the inability to fully cover the dark spots up. There are so many that there is NO way I would have time in the morning to go through and get all of them with concealer. After the first 5 or so I get bored of "concealing" and start slapping on the foundation.
I have oily skin, and prefer lighter feeling foundations. This foundation went on very smoothly-I forgot to use a primer, but apparently this made no difference. So this foundation went on smoothly, and blended very very well. It does let your own skin somewhat "shine" through-I have a mole on my face which shows after the foundation was put on, however the mole didnt look as if it was covered in makeup. It gives you a luminous look, without giving you the appearance of enlarged pores (Which I do have). So once on-you have a wonderful healthy glow.
I put the foundation on at 5 am, and it is now 5 pm. It has stayed put ALL day, all I used was the last of my Bare Escentuals mineral veil to set it in the morning. Because of my super oily skin, usually by the end of the day my makeup has changed colours (turned darker from the oil), and has stopped providing full coverage.
I am absolutely impressed, I adore this foundation, and it makes my skin look absolutely flawless!!
Oh yes one last thing-I am asian, and this foundation actually has enough yellow in it to match my skin tone. I do not look orangey or pink (FOR ONCE).
If you want a full-coverage foundation-look no further this is the one!
This foundation is also excellent for the "more mature" woman. Use it over the Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer for easy application. I do not use a sponge to apply it because it wastes the product. Instead I use my fingers. A very small amount gives a lot of coverage. You can dab on a little more on areas that are hyperpigmented from sun exposure to completely hide them. I am nearing my 70th birthday mark and haven't had any "work" done on my face so I see lines emerging and getting deeper. I had used Alexandra DeMarkoff's Countess Isserlyn prior to Laura Mercier for many years but started to find it too oily and so switched. Be careful about sellers charging over 57 dollars for this foundation. It retails for 42 dollars at Bloomingdales.
Armani irritated my skin (I have eczema, and am very picky about what I choose to put on my face), and it's good that I didn't buy it because 15 minutes after shopping in bloomies, and I start to itch my cheeks a little.
Dior is just like L.M.'s silk creme foundation, but just cheaper.
Apply this ultra light formula with a sponge, cover your entire face (if you don't need it on your forehead, don't bother). It doesn't feel cakey, and provides the quench that people with dry skin (like me) need - OR - that "dewey" look that people with oily skin want. I have a lot of pink undertones from broken capillaries and freckles (I'm Asian) and this product neutralizes and hides those blemishes to create a flawless, soft, natural, and overall perfect complexion.
FYI: This formula provides the most coverage of all of Laura Mercier's liquid face products. On weekends, you can try L.M.'s Tinted moisturizer - it's also very light, and moisturizing, and provides a natural luminescence over your favorite SPF moisturizer.

I miss the old formula. Why oh why did they change it. This doesn't match me as well as the original ivory rose did and it isn't as "silky".. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Samantha P.
