I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this product - I'm pretty satisfied with the coverage but I'm not in love with it. I guess one thing is that it doesn't really help control oil and I feel a little greasy soon after wearing it. I made the mistake of not having blotting papers with me during important events I've worn this and I look really greasy in the photos. That makes me sad. I'm not an expert in foundations as I don't wear them that often.

***Update: I'm bumping this down to 4 lippies due to the limited shade range. I bought Warm Ivory for winter and it's too peachy not enough yello-neutral. I'd still buy it again, mind, if I could find a perfect match. *** This is a new review to replace my earlier one. I have used LM Oil-Free for more than a year now and it is the best foundation I have had. Beautiful coverage, lightweight feel (I usually blend it with my fingers, having mixed in a drop of water, because without water it can look too made-up for daytime). It does dry quickly so does require some careful blending, but the result is worth it. It controlls my oily t-zone somewhat too. For my wedding last July I wore LM Vanilla Beige with GA loose powder (#2), it looked wonderful and lasted all night. However, I notice now that I actually need an ever so slightly yellower shade, but that is simply a question of matching. I love other LM face products too, so I guess this is really the line for me!

I wear this foundation in the shade Sunny Beige which is a perfect color match for me. It can tend to appear too matte at times, but all in all, I haven't found anything better and I'm always on a great foundation quest. Will definitely repurchase.

I had high hopes for this product, but unfortunately I had to take it back to the store. My first problem was the color match. For some reason, the sales lady just couldn't find a shade she really loved on me. I purchased a close match for summer skin, but it wound up being way too dark out in the sunlight.Secondly, I just couldn't get used to the way it felt on my skin. I could always feel it, almost like it was just sitting on top of my skin. Unpleasant. Took this back, disappointed too because it really did provide great coverage.

I bought this product based on the reviews on MA and I must say I'm lovin it! I've been using it for about a week now and no crazy breakouts yet so that is a definite plus for me! I have super oily skin and this does a great job of staying on and concealing that. first of all, I had been using clinique powder but that was just grosssss on my skin so then i used liquid LORAC and that was ok but it was sooo sheer and the bottle without a pump was just a nightmare to work in the morning. This foundation has great packaging with a mess-less pump and i apply it with a damp sponge. Its definitely "buildable" but do it in small layers, not a bunch at once.After all that i just dust on Laura Mercier loose powder in translucent to keep it all together and voila! Overall it covers my acne and oiliness and any other imperfections better than anything i have ever tried before so give it a try!UPDATE: This makeup doesnt seem to be as great as it once was. I've now switched to using a makeup brush to put it on (which uses about 1/4 makeup then with a sponge, big plus when its this expensive) but it doesnt seem to last on my face very well. I use a primer but I'm just not a fan of the liguid anymore, its kinda a pain...buttt im still stickin with it, its the best for my oily and acne prone skin

UPDATED REVIEW:I had 2 shades, Sunset and Suntan Beige and I could not get either one to work for me. I tried all the methods suggested and I did not like the greasy finish, or the thickness. It also settled into pores, even when set with powder. The shades also did not work for me...the suntan was too light and yellow, making me look pasty, while the sunset was too pink and obvious. The packaging is excellent though. Will not repurchase.

I was previously using Clarins True Radiance which was a so-so foundation for me. It broke me out and never ever lasted throughout the day. After looking around, and reading these reviews, I decided to try LM oil free foundation. Ok, let me tell you how much I love this foundation!! It is a true oil free foundation unlike many other so-called oil free foundations (like Prescriptives Virtual Matte which is NOT truly oil free at all by the way...) and LM oil free foundation stays on great, blends in well (its pretty sheer with excellent "buildability") and best of all, it does NOT break me out at all (and EVERYTHING breaks me out!!!) I can say all this after using it consistently for a month. Im very happy and will re-purchase it when its gone. The packaging is a bit frustrating, as the cap tends to come off if you take it with you, but Im totally willing to sacrifice that for a great foundation!! :) EDIT 8/14/05...still in love :) no problems whatsoever EDIT EDIT :) this stuff started drying me out and breaking me out. Sigh. BUT I found Maybelline Pure Foundation to be a great replacement!

Dear Laura Mercier,Thank you so much for making this foundation! But seriously, this is the best stuff I've ever used. I had been using MAC studio fix for along time. I kept breaking out and I would write it off as stress or climate changes. I finally checked out the reviews on makeup alley and then decided to try it out in person, after talking to the MA I realized it was MAC that was making me breakout so bad. I was initally discouraged at the application process (using a damp sponge), but it is well worth the extra time it takes. The buildable coverage is wonderful, and it's never cakey or streaky. I will never use anything else. The pump makes the bottle stay cleaner, and thus more sanitary. I haven't been breaking out since the switch, and I've had so many people tell me they like my make up! I stayed away from Laura Mercier for a long time, probably because of the no frills packaging or gimicks the lines like MAC use, but the quality speaks for its self.

I did not like this product. I gave it about three weeks, because my skin was still recovering from a bad reaction to Estee Lauder's doublewear. It did not break me out as badly as Estee Lauder's (I have super sensitive skin), but it did cause irritaion and more clogged pores. My biggest complaint about this product is the way it wore on my skin. It was greasy and everytime i touched my face it would be all over my fingers. It was like it was dripping off of my face. My face is naturally combo skin so this is not an often occuring problem. It also did not look right with the texture of my face. It wasn't the color, it was the texture that made it very obvious that I was wearing foundation. But speaking of color, I was inbetween so I had to mix two. I bought the lighter color and the SA gave me a large sample of the next shade darker. I have since returned it and am using Max Factor PanStick, which i like a lot more. Wears on my face better, incredibly non-comedogenic ingredients, and much cheaper.

I have never been into foundation. I have very oily skin and it's hard to keep the shine at bay. This was my first foundation purchase and I LOVE it!! I wasn't sure if I would be able to find a color right for me, but I did (toffee bronze). I wanted a foundation that was natural looking and didn't look cakey. This foundation evens out my skin tone and provides the sheer coverage that I was looking for. The good thing about this foundation is that you apply the foundation so you have sheer to medium-full coverage. Also, the foundation is in a pump which I really like. For those of you with oily skin, I would also recommend getting the translucent setting powder. These two together work wonders for me.
