Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum Oil Free Review

More tinted moisturizer reviews for you beauties.  Laura Mericer has been one of the top tinted moisturizer brand for several years.  Known for having a fuller coverage tinted moisturizer.  This was one of the first oil free tinted moisturizers that I tried in college.  Check out what Laura Mercier states:

This lightweight formula provides ideal protection from the sun’s harmful, damaging rays with broad spectrum SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen. It also controls oil-breakthrough with hydration to prevent dryness and soften and ease fine, dry lines. An antioxidant complex of vitamins C and E acts as a free radical scavenger to protect the skin from even the most aggressive effects of the environment, all while extremely long-wearing color stays true and wears evenly in a natural, semi-matte finish. Non-comedogenic and dermatologist- and allergy-tested to minimize the risk of irritation, it is perfect for all skin types, including sensitive ones.
There are 15 shades in the line which is a whole lot for a tinted moisturizer line.  There are about 4 women of color shades.  I originally tried walnut, the second to darkest shade, and it was a tad bit too light.  I must add that I love tinted moisturizers during the summer.  My tanned skin can be difficult to match.  Walnut required too much manipulation to work for me.  The darkest color mocha is a decent color match.  I felt as though the two darker shades do have slight grey cast to them.  This may be from the sunscreen in this product.

The coverage is like that of a light foundation.  It is definitely one of the thicker tinted mositurizers similar to the thickness of a BB cream.  This product will maintain oil control for about 2-4 hours. The price is 44.00 USD for 1.7 oz.  This price is comparable to other high end tinted moisturizers on the market.  What's your favorite tinted moisturizer? Stay FABULOUS!

Overall, this is a good contender for a tinted moisturizer.  When I first tried this product back in college, there were not that many women of color and oily friendly tinted moisturizers out there.  Now, I feel as though there are some better products on the market such as Nars and Urban Decay.  But it is worth a try.  Have you tried this?  Stay FABULOUS!
