I really don't like this product.

It is too stick and oil. The package is worst, cream is easy to pull out even when I do not use it. I think I loose at least 30% cream because of the package.

One of the worst BB creams out there!

I'll keep it short. Texture is thick and sticky. Smells like sunscreen (yuck). Feels heavy on your skin and looks super oily! Plus, it's way overpriced. What's to like?

Waste of my money! That's what it is.

This makes you look super oily and it doesn't have enough coverage for my taste. I like Lancome BB cream better.

HG for life. Once I got color matched to this. It's everything I've ever wanted in a BB / Tinted moisturizer. Sheer dewey coverage that makes you look like you have flawless skin without wearing makeup ;) I used to use tarte and while their coverage was heavier you could tell I was wearing makeup

I believed the hype and wanted to try this out specifically for my dry winter skin 6 months ago. I really haven't has much luck with tinted moisturizers because they always seem to emphasize my skin texture in a bad way. I don't feel like I have an extremely rough texture, it's not the eggshell that I would want but by no means "problem skin."
Anyway, I tried this and I think it actually made my pores look bigger...imagine the dimples on a golf ball or an empty lotus pod... eek! I've never had any product do that before.
The color match was good, which is nice because until recently brands were skimping on tinted moisturizer shades for WOC. The coverage was sheer and the scent was pleasant.
I returned it... The tinted moisturizer I'm looking for is in another castle.

Holy grail product!!! This is what got me started on make up! I apply it with the wet beauty blender lightly dabbing it onto the skin to blend it all in. The finish is flawless! This is by far the most natural looking bb cream I've ever used (and I've used many). Also LM is very good with matching skin tones, they have a wide variety to choose from and they always seem to work well for different people. I have very dry, very sensitive, fair skin with (sometimes) a little bit of rosacea around the cheek area. The coverage is medium. It has never made me break out or irritate my skin, on the contrary! I get the most compliments when I wear this. The only problem: it's somewhat expensive on a student budget when used daily. Other than that it's perfect! Packaging is also very good for traveling or carrying in the purse. If I apply it in the morning (without naps or work outs) it lasts till the evening though I do spray some MAC or UD finishing spray just to be extra sure (and mostly I use a smash box primer before if I can be bothered). However, touch ups do blend in easily and smoothly. It evens out the skin tone perfectly and leaves the skin looking smooth and soft. I love it!! ((:

I like to use this product when my skin is dry, or after I shower at the gym. I have combo oily skin, and this just doesn't last a whole day for me. I like it, and have tried the oil free version...same experience.

Not a bad product, just probably won't repurchase since there are better products for me- BB Cream (Skin 79) or BB water (smashbox)

I have never had as many 'your skin looks amazing!' comments as when I wear this product. I don't get it because it so light, barely detectable, yet everyone else comments! So I swear it must have something in it that is just magic! It lasts all day (when set with a fine powder) and the colour range is great.

I bought a full size of this a few years ago and then when it ran out I started buying the travel size for trips. Sephora usually has an airline-approved size. While I don't consider it perfect for my skin type, I do think it's a very good product and it would be better for me if my skin were drier. I know Laura Mercier makes an Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer and I've tried it but I don't like it as much. The finish isn't as smooth and the colors aren't the same. So instead I've bought this one and just powdered like crazy. I have not tried LM Secret Mattifying but an SA recommended it to me once as a good primer for this. Maybe that would solve it.

(If you're oily and have tried both of the LM TMs without success, I found Stila's Tinted Moisturizer to be good for combination to slightly oily skin. I used to buy that in the Light shade.)

I'm rating Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer 4 out of 5 because if your skin is normal to dry, which is the intended skin type, you'll probably love it.

If your skin is oily, keep looking.

I wear the "Nude" shade in this. I'm fair to light in complexion. Porcelain washed me out. The only shades available in the travel size were Nude and Sand. Sand is darker than Nude. Nude is a lovely neutral shade, not too pink or too yellow. As long as I wear it on my neck as well, it doesn't look too dark. In fact, it really makes my neck look better. I would almost buy it just for my neck. :)

The SPF 20 is sufficient for an average day of jaunts, but not for a day at the beach.

It's fragrance free, and non-irritating. I was able to wear it on days when some of my other foundations and tinted moisturizers were irritating to my skin.

My skin is combination to oily and also sensitive. This TM is not great at minimizing pores, but looks great with powder over it. It does make your skin look smoother due to sodium hyaluronate which is great at hiding fine lines. Coverage is minimal to light. For more coverage, I spot apply concealer over it, or use a powder foundation on top of this. If I don't do that, MAC Blot Powder becomes my faithful companion. If you are a fan of powder foundations, this pairs well with most of them.
