If there’s one thing that’s worth investing in, it’s definitely a good base for your makeup.
I wear foundation most days, and after reading about the Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous foundation I knew I had to add it to my collection.
I popped down to my Laura Mercier counter a couple of weeks ago to test the foundation and instantly fell in love with the amazingly natural glow it gave to my skin.
Being the super keen beauty fan I am, I actually bought this on the day that it launched and I’m so glad I did!
Firstly, lets talk about the packaging. The foundation comes in a beautiful matte grey box which feels really luxurious.
The bottle itself is frosted glass with a shiny bronze lid and it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen.
Obviously, packaging does not a good foundation make, but when you’re spending serious dollar on something you do want it to feel expensive.
I was matched at the counter as the shade Vanille and for me it’s a perfect match.
My mum is darker than me, and often struggles to find a good match for her, but Laura Mercier still managed to find her one which is really impressive.
I’ve been wearing this the past few days and I don’t know how I survived without it, it’s such a brilliant shade and finish for me.
As you can see it gives a really lovely glow to my skin, gives some fairly good coverage and really helps to even out my skin tone.
While it is a lot more expensive than my usual foundation, spending the extra money has really made a difference.
I really enjoy using this foundation and I’m going to be hard pressed to find anything that matches up to it!
The Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous foundation is £35 and comes in 24 shades.
