The Beauty Bite Archives - Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF20

Every year as sunnier climates dawn, the hunt for the perfect light-weight coverage continues. Gone are the days of suffocating pores with heavy foundations; the most relaxing holiday for skin is simply the opportunity to breathe. So whilst the wind is soft, the grass is green and sunny rays fill the skies, why not join me in taking the plunge and stripping down?


Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer is a beauty institution. Available in a range of 10 shades over 3 finishes (regular, oil-free and illuminating), this product offers the ideal light weight, natural effect coverage that all skin types crave. With the added bonus of SPF20, it always provides a little extra care for those of you who mightn't be the most religious appliers of sunscreen.

Easy to blend, this non sticky liquid glides gently over the skin leaving the most wonderfully fresh, radiant and dewy complexion. Featuring an antioxidant vitamin complex, it creates a fine barrier protecting the skin from any aggressive effects in it's surrounding environment. I've been wearing porcelain - the palest shade on offer - and am yet to encounter any streaking, patchiness or tide marks.

If you enjoy the credentials of a heavier foundation, then don't completely write this product off just yet. Like any sheer base it can be easily built up to provide more coverage when and where needed. For instance, one coat does a stella job at muting down my freckles. If you're looking to ease your way into a more bare skinned appearance, this tinted moisturizer is a great place to start. It gives fantastic wear and, once removed, leaves the skin feeling both super soft and hydrated.

I've tried many Tinted Moisturizers over the years, yet always seem to come back to Laura Mercier. It covers, it protects, it radiates and it lasts. For fresh faced summer beauty, I honestly couldn't think of a better starting block.

Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer is available from lauramercier.com ($42) and spacenk.co.uk (£33 for 40ml)

Nice review (: I recently bought MAC tinted moisturizer and I am pretty happy with it. Do you think the Laura Mercier one is a better option in terms of coverage? Have you ever tried the MAC one? Which finish is the one you have? Regular/oil-free/illuminating?..do you know if the oil-free one is drying for the skin??too many questions I guess!! :P iliana

I've been wanting to try this for years and just never have taken the plunge. Maybe now it's time I finally do. Lately I've been making my own tinted moisturizer:

Have you tried all three LM formulas? Not sure which one I would go for...

I am never entirely sure about this - granted the product does not budge, nor does it oxidise, but somedays it looks great and other days it seems to highlight all my flaws. It does look lovely on you though, but then you have beautiful skin. Jan x

You have beautiful eyelashes. Which mascara did you use? It is a pity that in Poland these all products are so expensive. :(

@ Iliana - This review is for the regular Laura Mercier formula. In general I think the MAC tinted moisture is pretty darn good, but I think this one edges it in terms of shade range and texture.

@Lemon5 - Sorry, but I honestly can't remember what I'm wearing in this picture! It might be Max Factor false lash effect?

How does it compare to Bobbi Brown tinted moisturiser, do you know?

@Anon - Personally, I prefer this over the Bobbi Brown one. In general I find Laura Mercier's formula to be less greasy, so it sits smoother on the skin. However, I've just tried the new revamped Bobbi Brown T.M and it seems to be a little less oily, although it still smells really strong of cucumbers!
