Laura Mercier

Finding a good oil-free foundation that complements one’s existing skin complexion can be a hassle, but many of my friends in the cosmetics industry have been discussing Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation as a solution to this conundrum. Laura Mercier Cosmetics is a subdivision of Amway and has been producing a variety of health and beauty lines for around fifteen years. This foundation in particular claims to include ample pigmentation for isolated use on the face and can also be layered depending on the level of coverage needed. Tempted by the supposed benefits of this foundation, I decided to give it a try and report the results so others will know if and how it works.

Since I have an even complexion for the most part, I decided to apply a layer to my entire face to see how well the foundation did in achieving a natural, unified look. Following instructions, I applied a small amount to a sponge and began to apply in an outward and downward motion, starting from the center of the face and working my way outward.

Now you may be wondering if there are any downsides to Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation. Most notably, there are a number of ingredients that can easily lead to clogged pores and breakouts; if you are looking for a non-comedogenic product or at least one that does minimal damage, this might not be for you. There are also pH adjusters and preservatives in the foundation that have been shown to irritate skin, but if your skin typically handles the makeup application process without issue then these most likely will not cause alarm. Barring these slight disadvantages, the foundation is a great solution for those looking to achieve minimal makeup application with maximum results.
