Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact.

One of my favorite tinted moisturizers is now available in a new cream, or as Laura says, "crème"  form. What's not to love? The formula is similar, but even easier to apply and much easier for travel. Meet Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact.

The lightweight crème formula is super easy to blend on with a sponge or even fingers. I even like using my favorite makeup brush to apply. The finish is super soft, subtly dewy and makes skin look very natural, yet almost flawless.  With an SPF 20 and a hint of color, this portable compact is perfect for travel and touch ups on the go.

There are twelve shades to choose from.

  • Porcelain - for very fair skin tones
  • Blush - for fair skin with pink undertones
  • Nude - Light beige for fair to light skin tones
  • Sand - for light to medium skin tones
  • Bisque - for light neutral complexions with balance of yellow and pink undertones
  • Fawn - for medium skin with pink tones
  • Almond - for light medium skin tones
  • Tawny - medium skin tone with neutral undertones
  • Caramel - for light tanned & olive complexions with yellow undertones
  • Tan - medium to dark skin tones
  • Walnut - for rich, deep skin tones
  • Mocha - for deep complexions with a balance of yellow and red undertones

Right now, I am using the color Fawn to blend nicely with my self-tan. It is a medium shade with pink undertones. It looks darker in the compact than it is. Remember, it may look like a foundation, but it is still a tinted moisturizer. The color is more like a wash of color, so it is lighter when going on, and more forgiving than the liquid formula.

The Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact is for sale for $45.00 right now online at lauramercier.com and in Sephora.

I am hoping to be impressed by this.
Sunnie - I think you will be. Have you used the original LM Tinted Moisturizer?
I saw this and wondered how it was. My skin is so dry and I find that most of the tinted moisturizers are too liquid and not heavy enough for me, I have to try it now. Thanks for the nice review!
This is different. Leave it to a foundation master to fill the void. I hope it is really creamy and covers good. Going to have to find one to test! Love LM!!!
Oh, I am so glad you saw this Marianna! You will really like how creamy this is. Let me know how you like it once you give it a try.
Happy to hear you are a fan of the Laura Mercier foundations. Give this a try and let me know what you think, though I'm sure you will love it, especially already being familiar with how good her things are.
I love the products from Laura Mercier, especially Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. It's the best product for my dry facial skin.
