Review of Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation by knguyen90
I've never tried the old formula as many people have raved about...but this is my take.
I initially purchased the normal Supreme Foundation along with the regular LM Foundation Primer...which went on AMAZING and LOOKED so amazing and dewey for so many hours!!! I was previously using the NARS Sheer Glow foundation, but as soon as I switched it up, I was getting compliments instantly.
Unfortunately after a couple of weeks of using it, I found that I ended up with white heads by the end of the day. I couldn't pinpoint if it was the foundation, the foundation primer or the new face lotion I was using (some olay face lotion for sensitive skin).
Either way, I returned both LM products and started using a different lotion and returned back to NARS for a couple of days.
Then I went out to purchase the OIL-FREE formulas of both the LM foundation & primer. I thought maybe that was the problem as I have combination skin (but it *is* more dry during the winter).
So I've been using it the past few days and find the finish is too matte - almost similar to the NARS foundation on my skin. I don't like it. If I wanted to look that way, I'd stick with NARS. Also, I wore it on NYE...by the end of the night it looked like it was wiped clean from my face....
I'm thinking about exchanging back to the normal foundation and keeping the oil free primer?
