Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation
What It DoesThis foundation helps combat dullness and reflect light so skin looks luminous in any light. Vitamin C helps to reveal a brighter, clearer and more even skin tone over time so that even without makeup your skin is radiant. This foundation also helps to effectively plump skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while flexible polymers melt into the skin to create long-wearing, comfortable and weightless second-skin color. The look of imperfections are diffused and skin's texture is seamless.
What It IsFlawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation from Laura Mercier is a luminous liquid foundation with 15 hours of hydration and weightless medium to full coverage.
Research ResultsAn independent consumer testing with 29 women using Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation, after 2 weeks: - 83% agreed skin looked luminous and naturally-glowing - 90% agreed it did not look or feel greasy - 83% agreed skin looked radiant
What Else You Need to KnowFlawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation provides up to 15 hours of moisturization to smooth and soften the look of skin. The weightless formula looks and feels like a second skin. Flexible polymers melt into skin to create long-wear comfort, and luminous, color-true pigments resist oxidation. This product is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner.

Dark circles ✓ Crepiness ✓ Fine lines ✓ By your late 30s/early 40s the under eye area takes on a whole new list of characteristics which means switching up your under eye concealer. So I’ve been testing out some faves to find the “Best Under Eye Concealers for Mature Skin”. Lately I’ve been testing the @lauramercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer*, a medium to full coverage, weightless concealer that “perfects, hydrates, and blurs with up to 12 hours of crease-resistant wear”. Highlighted Ingredients: - Skin Fusion Technology: An exclusive blend of flexible, long-wearing, emulsified polymers fuse to skin for up to 12 hours of wear that’s transfer-, sweat-, humidity-, and water-resistant. - Blurring Powder Blend (customized combination of Silk Powder and Silica): Helps create a smooth, light-diffusing film on skin that blurs the look of fine lines and wrinkles while creating a soft-focus effect. I’m a long-time fan of @lauramercier and give this formula a 4.5 out of 5. It blends beautifully for a really natural, airbrushed finish. It’s very lightweight and doesn’t oxidize so I find it to be a perfect match. It also perfectly camouflages blemishes and redness around the nose area. I deducted a 1/2 star only because I do experience the slightest bit of creasing under my eyes if I do not remember to use a very hydrating eye cream. Would be perfect for me with a minor increase in hydration but it’s not a deal-breaker for me at all! Overall it’s a great buy at $29.00 for 0.23 oz/ 7 mL. As a bonus, the lovely @arieloznyc also included a bottle of their beloved Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation and I am smitten! Will do a thorough review and maybe even a GRWM video soon but I really like this formula!. It’s the perfect “your skin but better finish” that I love! laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer laura mercier - Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation

Some of my Fav Products I used for this look❤️
MAC - Mineralize Timecheck Lotion this beautiful primer will allow for a smooth application of foundation by basically giving my skin a smoothed out and velvety look laura mercier - Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation Love this foundation as it is luminous whilst giving the face a beautiful natural radiant and glowy but not too glowy look. Because it is luminous it tends to melt easier therefore I gave it 4 stars because I live in the desert and a matte foundation would last longer) I still love it though because my face looks so good and natural at the same time. MORPHE - M439 Deluxe Buffer Brush This brush blends out the Laura Merciers Lumiere Radiance foundation, or any liquid foundation for that matter, completely and beautifully. Buffing brushes blend out makeup so beautifully and I find that this one does a better job at blending out liquid foundation than cream foundation. URBAN DECAY - Stay Naked Correcting Concealer beautiful and full coverage SEPHORA COLLECTION - Pro Press Full Coverage Complexion Brush #66 I love to use my fingers to blend out and pat in my concealer, then afterwards I love to use this brush to compact it into the skin. BECCA - Sunlit Bronzer one of my favorite bronzers that looks natural and just sun-kissed beautiful SEPHORA COLLECTION - PRO Angled Blush Brush #49 I find that this brush is the best for applying cream or powder bronzers ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Brow Definer love this trianglular tipped brow definer. The strokes create natural looking hairs. Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara hands down one of my favorite mascaras of all time ! After I curl my lashes I love to use this mascara. For today's look, however, I used L'Oreal's Telescopic waterproof mascara first and it really just lengthens the eyelash's to their fullest potential and makes them stay curled all day and then I went in with the Better Than Sex mascara to give them extra definition and volume BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder hands down my favorite translucent powder of all time because it never leaves a ghostly white cast in pictures, makeup lasts all day, even in humidity, and because it's just so refreshing. Love to apply this with it Cosmetics - Love Beauty Fully All Over Powder Brush #211 I lined my lips first with BareMinerals Gen Nude Borderline lip liner then I applied this beautiful matte lipstick from MAC - Retro Matte Lipstick in the shade Dangerous 💋 & that's a wrap ❤️❤️❤️

Late October Haul 🎃
This month I decided to treat myself to a little haul! The above products were purchased from Sephora and Amazon. Some of these products I’ve had my eye on for months, while others I compulsively bought! On the second slide are all of the sample products that were kindly supplied by Sephora 🙂 Sephora: PAT McGRATH LABS - Eye Ecstasy Duo: I bough these pallets out of compulsion. I only own one pallet which is the URBAN DECAY - Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette. I really want to start incorporating makeup into my feed, so I went on the hunt for a new pallet. I was able to get both of these pallets for $14 each instead of $28 each. That’s a steal for me! I cannot wait to dip into the Sublime pallet! DRUNK ELEPHANT - E-Rase Milki Micellar Water: Getting back into makeup I knew I needed a makeup remover. Just about everyone I know uses Micellar Water no matter what brand. I decided to go with the Drunk Elephant because I have seen so many product reviews with mixed emotions, so I wanted to try this brand out for myself! Kate Somerville - EradiKate Acne Treatment: This is another product I’ve had my eye on for months! I have seen many reviews of this product and so far everyone has loved it. I can’t wait to give this product a shot tonight after a much needed shower! Review for this product to come very soon! Not pictured: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Makeup Match Highlight Brush Samples: LANCÔME - Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover Dr Dennis Gross - Dr Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel Original belif - The True Cream Aqua Bomb IGK - First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Tatoo Liner in Trooper Deluxe Sample laura mercier - Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer CAUDALIE - Vinopure Skin Perfecting Serum GUCCI - Free Bloom Eau de Parfum Deluxe Sample Amazon: StriVectin - Daily Reveal Exfoliating Pads: I saw that StriVectin just recent came out with these. I was quick to purchase these because I have been looking for a product that I can carry with me at all times and quickly use during the day when my face is super oily while I’m out and about! I was originally using the OXY - Acne Medication Deep Pore Cleansing Pads, but the ingredients aren’t great for the skin at all! So I am super hyped to find a much more healthier alternative! Rael - Miracle Ratch: I originally found these on Instagram. I have been on the market for acne patches for sometime. My local target didn’t have any in stock, so I took to the internet. When I found these I looked up reviews, and every single one was positive. I cannot wait to try these!

Liquid vs. powder foundation
Will my face EAT this foundation? If I hug someone, will it TRANSFER? Will it make me breakout? Will it MATCH my undertones? Will it OXIDIZE? AND will it COVER what I want it to? Those are just some of the thoughts running through my head while selecting a foundation. Because of my oily skin and hyperpigmentation, I tend to layer liquid foundation and dust a powder foundation to set. (Powder foundation — other than KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Lock-It Powder Foundation Refills— tends not to have a ton of coverage/colors and if it does, then in an hour, my face will eat it.) laura mercier - Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation is medium to full coverage. It comes in 30 shades for $48 (1 oz./30 mL) and should be used with the loose setting powder color that best suits your skin tone. It is a “luminous liquid foundation with up to 15 hours of hydration and weightless, medium-to-full coverage, for a perfectly-glowing finish in any light.” For: Dry, normal, combination and oily. MY EXPERIENCE: I like this foundation, but this particular color runs warmer than I would like. Because of that I offset it with a powder to finesse the color. It is not transfer-proof. Recommend? If you find a color that suits you, then I recommend you get a sample from Sephora. (Obviously after this pandemic is over.) •••• NYX - Stay Matte but Not Flat Powder Foundation is a pretty affordable powder that you can get at most drug stores and Ulta. (Interestingly enough, there are 10 shades at Ulta but only 5 on NYX’s actual website. And the shade I have is not one of those. 🤨) From the brand: “Apply with a powder brush, all over your face for light coverage, or over makeup, for an instantly refreshing mattifying effect. For full coverage, apply with the included sponge or your favorite blending sponge.” MY EXPERIENCE: Even though, NYX says this is a foundation that can be used for light to full coverage, it is a pretty light coverage powder. Unless you want to look uber cakey. Unfortunately, my face would eat this powder up so I use it as a setting powder instead. Recommend? Not as a foundation unless you have perfect, baby skin.

the lauramercier Flawless Lumière Radiance Perfecting Foundation. I’ve been trying to decide how I feel about this foundation for weeks. One of my all-time favorite foundations is the LM Smooth Finish Flawless Fluid was sadly discontinued and I’m always searching for a product that stacks up. So was this it? Not quite, but it is a lovely foundation. It took some trial and error to find the perfect primer/application technique. I have to really prep my dry skin with hydrating products prior to applying this. While I did find that this product lived up to it’s promise of radiance, it’s not necessarily a hydrating formula. It has very subtle light-reflecting particles that create a beautiful glow with a satiny finish. While I love the LM primer with other foundations, it just didn’t mesh well with with this foundation on my face. One pump is enough to cover my entire face with light to medium coverage. I’ll use two pumps if I need more coverage, as this foundation builds nicely. The wear time is fantastic! This foundation stays put throughout my entire work day and doesn’t settle into fine lines. I think I’m going to love it even more in the warmer months.

A short review of my lauramercier makeup products✨ 🏆Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow ($39): Sephora upsold me on this one with a gift with purchase sample. When the baby sample ran out, I had to buy the full-size! It leaves a very subtle glow - one step under highlight - that I love to dust over my cheekbones to make me look more alive. It’s too glowy to use as a setting powder, but I adore how finely milled and weightless the powder feels. Holy grail makeup product! ❤️ Flawless Lumiere Radiance-Perfecting Foundation ($48): This is one step of coverage above a BareMinerals tinted moisturizer and one step below the Too Faced Born This Way foundation. It has a liquid texture that leaves a dewy finish, and I appreciate that it includes vitamin C for some ~skincare effect~. I’m really enjoying it, and it blends perfectly with a buffing brush. 😐 Foundation Primer ($38): This feels like a gel-cream moisturizer. It’s clear, water-based, and makes your makeup look good because it’s hydrating your face. Didn’t notice any difference in wear time. Hot take: Just buy a regular moisturizer and don’t drop $38 on this.
