Product Description

High pigment, high performance, hydrating foundation creates a flawless, radiant canvas that lasts up to 12 hours. Makeup artists love how this award-winning formula feels comfortable on skin while hiding even hard-to-cover imperfections and how natural it looks for selfies, photos, video, and special events as well as for everyday wear.

Moisturizing, long-wearing formula designed for normal to dry skin. Smooths skin texture and visibly evens skin tone. Colour-true pigments virtually disappear on skin for smooth, even application and blending.

  • Medium to Full coverage—Laura's fullest coverage.

Review for: Medium Ivory more...
I love this foundation. I have VERY fine lines under my eyes & laughing line, that being said it does NOT settle into wrinkles like other foundations and looks naturally, clear, healthy, perfectly skin (sounds too good to be true, I know) i wear shade medium ivory, its perfectly warmish yellow golden without making you look orange.

The color match was perfect on me and I love the smooth application with my beauty blender! The only downside is the price, I’m sure there’s fondations like this one that aren’t so high end.

Review for: Cashew Beige more...
This is the best foundation I have ever used for my dry skin!! I use the shade cashew beige in the fall/winter and in the summer when I’m tan I use the shade suntan. It doesn’t make my dry skin noticeable and it’s very moisturizing like it says! It doesn’t feel heavy or make you look cakey either. I definitely recommend this for people with dry skin! A little goes a long way!!

Review for: Beige Ivory more...
I will use this foundation forever. I've never used such a light but FULL coverage foundation before and I love it. It goes on so smoothly with my stipple brush and a little goes a really long way, which is great since it's somewhat pricey. I highly recommend this product.

Review for: Cashew Beige more...
This foundation is amazing. Is goes on really smoothly and blends amazingly. It is a little more on the pricy side but it is well with it. It dries matte which is just what I was looking for in a foundation. I have combination skin and this works great for them.

I absolutely loved this foundation but it does oxidize quite a bit, I wish I had gotten a lighter shade but the formula is amazing! It looked great on my skin and I have combination skin, so it worked great for me. I would definitely recommend

Review for: Rose Ivory more...
I already loved Laura Mercier for tinted moisture, concealer and for setting powder, so when I ran out of my previous photo finish foundation, I was excited to come across this product. I was especially excited to find a tone that suited me perfectly, addressing the pink copper undertones in my skin as opposed to warm golden or olive tones. I chose Rose Ivory, and it blended perfectly with my almost-redhead skin.
Coverage was complete but not heavy, perfect for as high quality an image as pro beauty photos or as simple as selfie blog shots. I wore this out all day in Las Vegas to an award show and when I returned late to my room, I was still covered without creasing. That sold me on this foundation for good.

I bought this without doing my usual research just because the tube highlighted that it was hydrating and "photo edition" I have really dry skin in the sense that my skin tends to absorb anything I put on it so I was looking for a liquid foundation that was hydrating which is surprisingly a challenge considering many liquid foundations are now designed to prevent oiliness which is the opposite of my problem. So here's how it weighs in:
-more hydrating than other foundations
-not a lot of shades. The shade I got seems too light but I can't seem to find a shade darker that doesn't look too dark
-good coverage! Nigh time wear approved
-good packaging. I'm sure I can squeeze out every drop of product in this tube.
-reasonable price
-looks nice in photos
Will I repurchase? Probably not. Just can't find my shade in this line and not hydrating enough for me to absolutely love it.

I have combination skin and I like a full coverage foundation. I am in the color bamboo Beigh, perfect for me. Its medium to full coverage, I bougjt mine at sephora, and the beauty consultant told me it was medium / full coverage. Very worth the price and a little dies go a long way. I recommend it and will continue repurchasing.

It is normally hard for me to find a shade that matches my complexion being multi-racial. I usually look like a corpse when out at night with friends taking photos. This foundation matches my complexion perfectly. I also suffer from acne and the coverage is greatm no need to wear concealer I can just layer the foundation. It does not clog my pores like other foundations do. I always get compliments on my skin everyone thinks I havr perfect skin. If they only knew!
