Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation.
Recently I’ve been banging on about a new favourite foundation I’ve discovered and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. I purchased Silk Creme on a whim in Space NK after the sales assistant told me it was long wearing, good coverage and a luminous finish. Sounds like the dream right? Right.
This foundation is absolutely amazing, it puts all other foundations to shame! It’s the most incredible shade – Cream Ivory is perfect for me which never, ever happens! It lasts so well on the skin, a full day and I don’t feel the need to wear powder. The finish is beautiful, I find that the coverage is full enough to cover all and look flawless (it covers my redness, scarring and blemishes so well) while still looking incredibly natural and making my skin look glowing and healthy.
I’m wearing it in the above picture, with a touch of concealer and no powder. Any marks or blemishes I may have are completely hidden and I still think it looks really natural and luminous.
I have been using Silk Creme every day since I got it – it’s my perfect foundation and everything I have been looking for. I have taken the “less is more” approach and only use a pea size amount, blended in with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. You can see more on my daily makeup in this post.
This is hands down the best foundation I’ve tried, the coverage is flawless and the finish is glowing, natural and healthy. I am so pleased I don’t need powder, despite my skin being on the oily side, and I’m really happy with how long it lasts on my skin.
I really cannot hype this enough! Have you tried this foundation? What were your thoughts?
