Awesome, just freakin awesome. I have dry skin and only use liquid foundations because powders stand out on my face and make me look ghostly. Had used revlon color stay for years and also really liked MUFE face and body but once I found this stuff I dont think I will ever switch. Just gives me a nice moisturized kind of dewy look. I dont need heavy coverage at all but def provides enough to even out my skin tone/hide any imperfections while looking natural enough that it doesnt look like I have heavy makeup on at all. Has 20 SPf, always a plus This is my HG.
I use it after washing my face, applying lotion and primer (stila hydrating) and then applying this using my coastal scents flat top buffer brush which I absolutely love. A little goes a long way because its pretty watery. looks flawless when done!
Ovbiously the biggest downfall is the price but everyone loves this product so LM knows they can charge whatever they want for it.. will still rebuy and probably go to the jumbo size. Has lasted me about 4 months with near daily full time use

LM has changed back to her original formula and I now am using it again. NUDE is slightly too dark for my skin but works well. I also have theBALM in light and like theBALM better (and its much cheaper). I have the LM TM compact, and to get this to spread I use argan oil, otherwise it is too drying. Not the best TM out there but certainly a stand out for those who want some coverage but not foundation.

Great-I use this all the time, it's perfect everyday light coverage and a natural dewy finish. The shade nude is a perfect match for me. Oh and I'm acne prone and this doesn't break me out or clog my pores. Love it <3
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I have dry sensitive skin, therefore I have a hard time finding foundations and TM's that will not break me out or make me look too matte. This is the first product that makes my skin look normal, and even radiant!
I purchased this in Sand and I am nc35 it is an okay match a little dark. It would be a perfect match for nc40 which is what I am in the summer.
I have acne scars and have to use concealer with this but this gives enough coverage to completely even out my skin tone. This is the perfect everyday "foundation" I know its a TM lol
It has not broken me out(I break out with ELDW, MUFE HD, MAC Matchmaster, LM Silk Creme, Mac Pro Longwear, and Clinique) and almost gave up on searching for something till I found this
love this! if you have dry sensitive skin give this a try

I've used this off and on for years, it's a staple for me. I use Porcelain (or Nude in the summer) and I'm about an N3 or an Estee Lauder Invisible 1N1. This has just enough coverage to even out the pinkness I have from rosacea and makes my face a little glowy. I use either a foundation brush or a makeup sponge to apply and it blends really nicely. I like to use a fluffy powder brush to apply a light dusting of Laura Mercier Loose Powder for a more made-up look.

I am revising this review because I've just tried MAC Studio Tint and find it to be better for me. This one is still good.
My original comments: "Good range of shades (and one that matches for me), no colour change, absorbs quickly, nice sheer coverage which lets skin show through but also buildable, isn't dry, isn't greasy."
My reasons for preferring the MAC is the colour is a better match and it seems to blend into my skin better. It truly makes me look like I'm wearing nothing but have flawless skin, whereas this one is a bit heavier and you can tell there's something there, even though it's light. Still a good one which many people love so worth giving it a try. Also, and this is a minor point, the LM product leaks out of the tube into the cap when it's stored cap-down, which eventually you want it to be to get all the product out, and the MAC doesn't.

I first saw this as a best seller from Sephora Singapore. I was so lucky to be gifted one in Blush before I went to buy it. It was a true match to my asian skin tone.
Coverage: Light to medium. It's coverage almost like a liquid foundation.
Texture: More liquid and spreadable than normal liquid foundation.
Smell: A little of chemical smell but it goes away very fast and its not at all a concern for me.
Performance at the start of the day: Fresh and dewy (I skipped the moisturiser and applied it after Shu uemura mousse makeup base and finish it off with Guerlain Meteorite finishing powder)
Performance thoughout the day: No oxidisation, colour remains fresh and dewy (Need to only blot face lightly with facial tissue once)
Performance at the end of the day: Still no oxidisation, colour remains fresh.
I am very pleased with the result. However, I probably wouldn't recommend this for people with oily skin. Best for dry skin/normal skin, especially for the Winter season.
The Chanel Aqualumiere would be the next liquid foundation I would want to try.

Got a sample in my color from Neiman's. Was excited to try it as I have read so many good reviews about it. I used it for the last week or so. It isn't hot here right now, and my skin was parched from being in Canada two weeks ago, so the whole week or so I went from parched to, well, a grease patch. It made my pores huge. Made me super greasy. My son looked at me yesterday and said, what's going on with your face. Today I tried one more time in the morning. While it doesn't irritate me too badly, I got a little burnt, and I put enough on. I was a greasecake when I came home. It's going into the do not buy bin of my bathroom. Thank heaven I write these reviews! They save me because I go back to MUA to check if I used it before so I don't buy by mistake. Anyway, huge miss for me.

though this product covered up my blemishes and such, it gave my face such an oily sheen that i had to cake up on the powder, which made me look like a clown.
i dont even have oily skin!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Relaxed, Fine Eyes: Brown
After reading all the rave reviews on MUA, I caved in and got this in nude, which is a good match to my skintone. I have been using this for quite some time and I've been loving it. Coverage is light, so concealer is needed for dark circles (I have terrible dark circles) and occasional zits, but on good skin days, I just set this with E.L.F HD powder and it lasts all day. Doesn't oxidize on me and it photographs great. I also have dry (with occasional flakes) and this applies fine over those areas. It has a super natural finish and gives me the my skin but better look.
If you have pretty good skin and just want to even out your skin tone, this is the product for you. However, it is definitely on the pricey side. Nevertheless, I will repurchase unless I can find a cheaper alternative of comparable quality.

It's so runny that the tube became a complete mess. It didn't feel very moisterizer at all so it didn't perform that function very well. All in all a disaster for me. A bad moisterizer for very dry and dehydrated skin and it just looked bad because my face was too dry. I didnt like it that my hands would be covered in the mess either from the tube.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This is crazy pricey, however it a tube/bottle lasts forever. I used to use Clinique's Almost Makeup however they discontinued it so I switched over to this. I have crazy dry skin, and this is the ONLY product that makes me look like I have that amazing dewy finish (I have the oil-free version). It also has fantastic coverage and looks completely natural in photos, in real life etc. I've been applying it with my fingers, however after reading the reviews I might go and pick up a stippling brush. My mom (has combination skin) tried using this product and it made her face into an oily mess.) So I would only recommend this for people with DRY DRY skin. Otherwise it will 'melt' off. If you do have dry skin though, check this out you will not regret it

I've been using this for a while and am really liking it! A lot. I use to use a heavy foundation and while I didn't have problems with it, I felt like it was stuck on my face and caked up. I wanted to go for a lighter alternative and I searched MUA and found this. I use the Sand color and its a pretty much dead on match to my skin tone. The consistency is light and very creamy. I apply to a sponge and apply all over. For those wanting to cover blemishes and what-not, this may not be for you. This TM is pretty sheer and you can definitely build-up on the layers but it goes on smooth and it definitely moisturizes my skin. I can see why others have said that after a few hours their face gets oily. I have that sometimes when I sweat too much or during a humid day. But some blotting is all that is needed. All in all, I like it and it photographs great. Lots of colors and for those who want an oil-free version, well, they do have that as well. I haven't tried the oil-free since I like the original one. I think for those who are interested in trying a TM, this would be a great start. The price is a little steep but I think its worth it. I also use some loose powder on top and it stays on all day. I really like it.

I heard so many good comments about this product. Finally, I decided to try a TM out and i chose LM TM. This product was disappointing. Money is not an issue, and with such high price, i expected to be somewhat okay. I brought this at Nordstrom and used it for 5 days. It broke me out and I gave it 5 days to see if my skin will adapt it. It didn't. Also, it doesn't have good coverage. I needed something to cover a lil discoloration and redness. I hated the packaging, product is such a waste with the package and it can dirty make up bag! I ended up returning this and went with Nars TM. Btw, my skin is sensitive and dry. & the Nordstrom lady told me it's good for dry skin people.

Before I met this tinted moisturizer, I was a total skincare snob. I only trusted my skin the serious SPF and hydrating ingredients of skincare brands, thinking those from makeup brands were mere fluff. Well, I eat my words. This gives my skin exactly what it needs - moisture, coverage and SPF 15 protection - in one easy step. It's cut down my get ready routine by about 5 minutes (my husband is shocked!). But, the best aspect of this product is it's coverage. I have very uneven skin, thanks to hyperpigmentation and old acne scars, and LM Tinted Moisturizer glides over it, blending it in and making my skin tone miraculously appear even and impeccably natural. For the 2 months I've been using this product, I've been getting comments from friends and coworkers about how good my skin look--which, to a gal who's used to having bad skin, is the world's biggest boon. Thank you, Laura Mercier.

Even though I have pretty normal skin, this left me feeling really greasy. The tube tends to leak out a lot of product, which is a waste. The coverage is decent, but I just hate how I feel after I wear this for the day. It ends up being more work than a tinted moisturizer really should be.

***I have this in the Oil-Free version.***
I'm in love with the Laura Mericer Silk Creme Foundation, so I decided to stray away from my usual foundation-junkie self and try something new and raved-about for once.
So I went ahead and purchased this. I got it in the shade Bisque, which is a little light for my NC35 skintone.
Its coverage shocked me. I've tried only ONE tinted moisturizer prior to this one, and that was the Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer, which apparently has too much coverage for a tinted moisturizer. So, based on reviews, I expected this one to be sheer with maybe a hint of color (that's basically what I imagine when I hear the words "tinted moisturizer"). But its coverage is actually light-to-medium, so that's good! I still have to use concealer for my dark acne marks, though, but that's not a problem as this TM wears well on top of it.
I also love how it has SPF 20! Some people complained that it doesn't have enough SPF, but I think anywhere around 15-20 is perfect for me--I need some protection, but I still want to tan!
On the other hand, I'm not really a fan of the finish. It leaves a sheen behind immediately after application (this is on top of a primer, btw). As you can imagine, what begins as a nice dewy "sheen" turns into oiliness shortly after. So I have to fix that with a light dusting of translucent powder, and a few blots here and there throughout the day (I'm used to it, though, so I don't mind). Hence, I don't recommend it for oily skin, unless you use a powder on top. I'm sure it would look great on dry skin, though.
The lasting finish is pretty good too. It lasts all school day--with minimal physical activity, mind you--without it melting off or fading away. I did wear this in dance class, however, and it turned my whole face somewhat oily-looking. I can imagine, however, that if I hadn't applied a layer of powder on top prior to dance class, I would've looked like I was swimming in oil by the end of the class...
Although I do think that this is a really great tinted moisturizer, and its quality somewhat justifies its price, I still think it's rather expensive at $43.
Would I repurchase? Maybe.

Ok, so I am love with this stuff after not really liking it the first time around...I purchased it about a year ago, tried it and thought MEH. Well, I just started using again and I realize that I wasn't prepping my skin properly the first time AND that I need to apply it with a stipling brush, not my fingers. I was using this as my sole moisturizer (skin is just too dry for that) but now I use my normal moisturizer, wait a few minutes and then apply this. This product DOES moisturize much like a light to medium coverage (hydrating) liquid foundation and the color is perfect for my skin tone - which is huge since I'm brown with yellow undertones (like Zoe Saldana). Yes, it's pricey but I can attest to the fact that you can literally let it sit unused for a year, shake it up and it's good as new. I totally recommend it to those looking for a buildable, light to medium hydrating foundation.

After countless quest on searching for a good tinted moisturiser, I finally landed myself one as a gift (talk about law of attraction!).
Upon the first month of using this, I substituted this as a foundation; meaning that I only apply this after my moisturiser and sun block. I didn't like it, because it made my combination skin even oilier ! Even after dusting a layer of powder, my skin did not stay matte for a long time.
However, after much trial and error... I realised if I used this directly after toner, it adheres very nicely onto my skin, giving it a very subtle glow, while keeping my T-zone matte. It's strange that LM's tinted moisturiser gave this effect because texture wise, it's really quite thick (but very spreadable).
Ofcourse, I still had to rely on a concealer of spots, but it does a decent job in evening out the skintone, without looking cakey. The shade for me was in Nude, which I believe is the lightest or 2nd lightest on the colour chart. This shade has a good yellow-undertone to it, and is perfect for an Asian fair-skinned girl like me.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who is just looking for a product to even out their complexion. My only gripe on this is that it only comes in SPF 20, which is inadequate considering that I live in the southern hemisphere of the globe which is unfortunately most prone to harmful UV rays. Otherwise, i can totally understand why this product was recommended over and over again in countless beauty magazine ! Highly recommended !

I have always worn a true foundation but after reading so many reviews I decided to give it a shot. I went to Sephora and had the full "4 Steps to a Flawless Face" done....seriously hooked after that. I got so many compliments over the next couple days! I really would have never considered a Tinted Moisturizer, but with the primer and setting powder it looks amazing! PLUS it hasn't clogged my pores. Only complaint is the lid doesn't meet the bottle as well as it could.
