[MakeUp] Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation in #Creme



Whassups my lovely ❤

If you're beauty junky then you might know something was heat on beauty market. Laura Mercier has added a new product to the foundation line which is Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation. This new foundation promises to deliver universal wearable, perfecting, smoothing, natural matte, oil free formulas that provide a blurring effect for a smooth, seamless complexion for 12 hours with lightweight formula.

This foundation has built-in two key technology which are 'Shake to Active' and 'Hydro-Brilliant Technology' inside

Shake to Active : ultra-modern, lightweight foundation actives fresh color every time you shake bi-phase formula to create an even, seamless, complexion

Hydro-Brilliant Technology : reflective waters and natural silica creates briliant color-true shades, more natural than ever before

It's come with pretty wide selection of color shades too; from fair to dark shades with cool undertone, neutral-tone and warm undertone. Pretty awesome isn't?!

It's has 24 color shades (Shell, Creme, Vanilla, Ivory, Ecru, Cashew, Linen, Macadamia, Butterscotch, Dune, Buff, Honey, Dusk, Golden, Suntan, Praline, Maple, Chai, Nutmeg, Pecan, Amber, Chestnut, Truffle, Espresso)

My skin is light-beige warm undertone. #Creme and #Ivory shades suit my skin best. After some consideration and recommendation from makeup artist, I picked #Creme because warm undertone always not my preference in my base selection.









Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skins, especially normal-to-oily skins. If you're dry skin, recommend to well-moisturize the face before apply on or else this foundation will dry out your skin. The coverage is medium to full coverage and it's buildable.

Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide is tube design foundation. When this foundation on my hand, I can immediately knew the texture was very liquidy and has something 'ball'? inside (I don't know what is that) that helps to blend the texture formula inside.

The direction of using this foundation is quite unique while in the meantime, it's pretty troublesome too. This foundation has to shakes well to active the bi-phase formula to gives fresh color everytime.

THE PART THAT I AM SO DISLIKE was this foundation can be so messy everytime I'm using it. What does this mean? Because I always forgot following the direction given, the foundation was leak out when I opened it. The foundation was all over and I felt so wasted! 



So, to avoid the leaking problem, here's the right direction for you in case you're interest to get one. :)
DIRECTION OF USAGE

1) Shakes to active the bi-phase formula
2) Tap few times to release the pressure inside

The longer you shake it, and the slower you open it,  the cleaner everything is
Recommend using finger tips or sponge to apply for best result











My shade is #Creme which is very fair with neutral undertones. The consistency of this foundation is liquidy, like water! I am using finger tips and sometimes cushion sponge to apply this foundation. I have also tried using Sigma 3DHD™ KABUKI Multifunctional Brush to apply and the result was good as well. But I am more with finger tips method to apply this foundation because I found the result was the best and can prevent my beauty tools "eat" the foundation.

The texture is super lightweight, smooth and easy to blend. This foundation sets pretty fast so I recommend apply area by area. The finishing is gorgeous! Not really matte nor Dewey. It's gives a very fresh and natural finishing looks and the foundation doesn't settles into pores and fines line. It doesn't feel sticky; slighty powdery (satin finish) so I think this foundation should be okay without setting with compact/loose powder.

The coverage is awesome. For those who loves natural skin finishing, then this is for you! WHY? Because although this foundation claim is a buildable medium-to-full coverage but even after you cover, it still can see the skin underneath and the imperfection still can be seen indistinctly if close-up looking at mirror. So what I claim is this foundation gives a high blurring effect and not giving 'die-flawless' looking.

The long-wear that claims can last up to 12 hours with humidity-proof, sweat proof and water-resistant. My personal verdict on this is awesome! One time I wore this foundation from 11am to 9pm (10 hours), this foundation still stays pretty well on my face. My face starts looking dewy after 4 hours and I have touched-up my face once in between.


TO SUM IT ALL TOGETHER
Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide is now one of my favorite foundation. I love the wide selection of shades, the formula and finishing on my face. #Creme shade perfectly suit my skin tone, the texture is awesome and the finishing was ideal. This foundation was a worth of try but the price MYR 189 for 30ml foundation wasn't pocket friendly to everyone.

PROS: Liquid consistency, Light-weight formula, Satin finish, Natural and fresh finish, Wide selection of color shades

CONS: Messy, Kinda pricey
