Most Helpful Positive Review It's okay
I have fair to light mature skin with red undertones. I've tried both the 1C1 and 1N1. Lots of freckles and some broken capillaries. This is sheer to medium coverage at best. Yes it's buildable but will look cakey if you build it. It dries super fast. What I've found with Laura's foundations is that you HAVE to go lighter that what you think you wear. Once it's blended in it will match. At least that's been my experience.
Most Helpful Critical Review Formula is nice, but the color range sucks
I have this foundation in 5N1 (pecan) and there is nothing neutral about this shade. The undertone is so orange it is ridiculous! In every formula, I find that this shade's undertone is perpetually orange. Also, there seems to be a gap between shades 4w2 and 5n1. Why isn't there a 5w1? Laura Mercier really needs to re-calibrate her shade range and go back to the drawing board and fix this the orange undertone in the shade pecan and make it appropriately neutral. The formulation of this foundation is nice and skin-like but I just can't get pass the oompa loompaness it gives my complexion.

i've been struggling with foundations for a couple of years because I've been treating my acne for years and so my skin texture and skin type has changed over time it's definitely I hit or miss some days so it's hard to find a foundation that can look good no matter what day my skin is feeling. this foundation has truly changed everything that I love about make up especially because no matter what it always looks good and it lasts so long too!! I live in Texas so there's definitely a lot of heat and humidity and even though my skin is dry I do like a very matter finish and this gives that velvet and blurring type of look but here is the best part: I am someone who sweats more than normal in the first place I tend to sweat as usually my face so my foundations will always break up and look like an oily crackly mess but this one never did! I really put this foundation to the test by making sure I wore it all day (10 hours) under heat and humidity and let me say..IT LOOKED BEAUTIFUL!! I barely had a touchup and even though my skin got the tiniest bit oily it was barely even noticeable and it just laid on my skin so beautifully!

Neutral in this line means yellow. I bought two different 'neutral' undertone shades and they literally looked so yellow I had to return one and kept the other that I thought could make work with concealer. I actually may just have to return the second one as well because I cannot be walking around looking like Homer Simpson.

Excellent coverage spreads well..a little goes a long way ..beautiful matte coverage leaves looking flawless stays on all day long
Needs to rethink packaging
Kmal from Australia
The consistency of the foundation is so thick that the little tiny nozzle doesn't produce any product so you have to use other devices to get some out.. also the glass is very easily breakable
I used to love

I used to love this foundation so I retried a few years later and sadly it felt too heavy on my skin
This is my FAVORITE

This is my FAVORITE FOUNDATION. It's buildable and luminous. I have many foundations and this one is half empty and I will finish it and rebuy it. Pump works easily. I recommend it often!

whitneyharrisblog from undisclosed
I love this foundation but felt that there are more affordable options with just as good if not better coverage. Nothing I would improve necessarily, just more affordable options that are just as good!
Really liked how this
annar240 from undisclosed
Really liked how this smoothed out my skin and covered everything I needed it to cover.
I was looking for
ashleyg518 from undisclosed
I was looking for a foundation that had at least medium coverage, lasted at least the work day or close to, wasn't heavy feeling, had spf, was good for my skin and not too expensive. I would say this one hit all those things and I would buy this foundation again!

Gayle from Texas
I wanted to like this product so much. It took a long time to arrive. When it did and I was finally able to use it, the makeup caked in the fine lines under my eyes. Won't be using it. Don't need to look any older than I am. :(
madi from Shakopee
I primed my face to THE GODS and gave this product one last try because I really wanted it to work but all it did was cake up on me.. I looked like a crumb coat on a literal CAKE lol. Love ya Laura, but this ain't it for me sis.
Lilly5 from Fairfax, VA
I love the product but I didn't open it for several weeks after getting it as I was finishing up another one (don't want to go without it!) and I was disappointed that the pump mechanism doesn't work. So I put it on every day by opening it up and scraping off the foundation from the plastic stick. But it is wonderful coverage and can't be beat!
Snagra from NY
The best shade match and long wearing matte foundation
Neutral has yellow undertones
not a big make-up wearer from Ann Arbor, MI
It was so yellow! It went on with a great finish but even though it had neutral undertones, it made me look sallow and tired. I had a heck of a time washing it off too, so (positive spin!) points for staying power. The darker shades strike me as potentially too orange for me, so I'm still on the hunt for another brand.
Book Lover from East Bay, California
I'm so glad I tried this foundation. I was using Giorgio Armani Luminous but it was oxidizing on me. This foundation doesn't do that, and it has just the right amount of matte finish. I'm 49 with my fair share of fine lines, but this doesn't cake or settle in lines like the Makeup Forever stick foundation I was also using occasionally. I wore the LM foundation today in 106 degree heat, with a mask all day, and I had no greasiness, no mask transfer, no oxidation. I used the Makeup Forever green primer, and one pump covered my while face. I can't wait to try this foundation with the Laura Mercier primer!

I am in love with this foundation, it blends seamlessly, and is really lightweight. I was a little nervous that it would go on with and leave with a little bit of an oily finish, but it actually applied with more of a matte finish/texture with a little glow. Its my favorite foundation I have owned.
Came back to what works
Elizabeth3 from NYC/Dallas
My mom brought me to the LM counter as a young adult so I could have quality product & I wore it for years before trying other brands. I'm in my late thirties now & have found LM is still the best. It gives me the most finished/flawless look, doesn't have a strong smell like other long wear brands and I tend to get the most compliments when I wear this foundation.
Not for me
IdahoGirl58 from Boise
It did not last 6 hours. It came off and settled in fine lines.
Worst Foundation ever
Jenny Toledo from Long Island City , NY
This product is too heavy on the face. The minute I applied just to clean my hands I needed 2 baby wipes and water. It's wasn't easy to remove. I returned it.
Jamie from Detroit, MI
Love this foundation. Stays and sticks to skin, not oily. Build able. Good coverage.
Worth the money.
Cindy from Texas
I was skeptical if this make up at first. I have to say I'm very happy. It stays on and is smooth and long lasting. I would recommend you give it a try!
I also bought the setting powder. I don't use these two together because I don't need the power for this foundation. I have used the setting powder with another moisturizing foundation and it is unbelievably great! You only need a very little and the make stays on and lost long! Highly recommend these products !
