Laura Mercier are known for their always excellent primer, but less so for their foundations, which is a shame as they’re great- and cater for every skin tone, something which I always appreciate. Their foundation powder has been my go to for years now, but I always used it as a finishing product as I find liquids far less drying. Thankfully they have just released their Smooth Finish Flawless Fluid foundation, a light liquid formula that glides on, quickly sinks in and lasts the day. Specially formulated to match your skin tone, it instantly looks natural; perfect if you’re not really feeling the YSL waiting list.
