Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation

Hello everyone! If you have watched my March Favourites video then you will know that I have been loving my Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation recently.

I love foundations that are slightly glowy but also provide a good amount of buildable coverage. I only own one medium/full coverage foundation which is quite a matte finish so I was on the hunt for a new one!




When I first apply this, it can sit a little on my skin and look slightly thick for the first couple of minutes. After it's been on my skin for a few minutes though, it completely settles in and is left looking really natural, glowy and flawless. It's very light on my skin too so I don't feel as though I'm wearing foundation.

The coverage is very buildable and however much I build it up, the colour never darkens and it never looks or feels thick once it has settled in! It's called a full coverage foundation which it definitely is, but you can just apply a little bit and buff it in to achieve a lighter, medium coverage.


I use a primer with this and also set it with a powder and setting spray. I ran out of my setting spray for a couple of weeks though and this still lasted perfectly all day on my skin without me touching up at all!

I love that this foundation leaves my skin looking healthy, radiant and glowy whilst also looking very natural! This is definitely the best foundation I have and it's really perfect for me.

The colour I have is Soft Ivory which is the perfect shade for me as well. Sometimes I struggle to find foundations pale enough for me but this one is a great match!

Have you tried this foundation? I would love to know what your favourite foundation is :)

This is available here for £33.

  6. I absolutely LOVE this foundation, I did a review myself. @Georgia- it'll last FOREVER! A little bit goes a long way. It's my perfect go-to foundation for days I really need coverage, or just want to look flawless.

  8. I bought this recently and I love it, especially at the moment, my skins been playing up, I mainly save it for special occasions though.
    My favourite at the moment is the Bourjois healthy mix foundation, it smells incredible too :).

    1. I know what you mean! I would recommend trying to get a sample or getting them to apply it all over your face so you can see how it lasts :) x
