Favorite Things Friday: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

I wear make-up everyday but not a lot of it. My morning routine is eyeliner, eyeshadow and blush. On rare occasion I'll add some tinted lip gloss. It takes just a few minutes. Over the years, I've bought foundation--liquid or powder--on many occasions. I usually try it a few times then stop wearing it. I hate the feeling of having anything on my face and I could always feel even very light foundations.

Over the past month or so, however, my skin has really changed. I've noticed a lot of red blotchiness around my nose and on my chin. My usual "normal" or even "oily" areas have gotten very, very dry. I knew I needed something to even out my skin tone.

I headed over to Sephora on my recent bra-shopping excursion to look for a very light-weight tinted moisturizer. The very helpful saleswoman steered me toward Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer (shade Nude for me) and I instantly loved it. The shade was perfect--it blended in flawlessly and it was truly so lightweight that I couldn't feel it.

That was a week ago and I've worn it every single day. (That's definitely a record for me!) It makes me feel so much more put together and only takes moments to apply.

Disclosure: As with all my Favorite Things Friday, this is just a product I love and want to tell you about. It was bought with my own hard-earned dollars, none of which are earned through blogging as I don't have ads.

  1. I rarely wear makeup, not out of any sort of feminist-inspired stance, but out of laziness and inexperience. :)

    I did want to say that I like your take-that-FTC statement at the end!

  2. I'm going through a no-makeup (well, definitely always concealer under my eyes - but otherwise no foundation) phrase right now and need something easy to even things out. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll keep my eye out for this brand.


Comments make my day. Thanks!
