Laura Mercier’s Silk Creme is definitely one of my favourite foundations, sometimes. I have combination/oily skin and if my skin’s playing up this isn’t a great choice. It can feel annoying around the t-zone and can melt away if not set properly. It can also cling to dry patches so make sure these are moisturised before application. If you’ve got your skin sorted this is a dream of a foundation. It applies and blends easily. Covers almost everything without looking cakey or mask-like. It also lasts most of the day.
I’d say this is medium to full coverage which is easily buildable. It’s a thick foundation with plenty of give in it making it easy to blend. I use a brush and my fingers for application. A sponge would also work well with this. It evens out my skin tone and covers blemishes and discolouration wonderfully. It still looks like my skin though, but much better.
I’ve had Silk Creme for several months and I use it pretty regularly and I’ve still got loads left. A little really does go a long way. It’s also good for concealing little blemishes. Sorry about the slightly different lighting conditions in the following photos, it’s been a nightmare trying to get decent light but it gives you an idea of coverage and finish. I’ve applied Laura Mercier Silk Creme lightly then added more where I needed extra coverage. I’ve used a translucent powder to set.
