Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation
First I love the packaging. Squeeze tube ensures that I dispense the amount of product I want. It is also great for travel, no chance or breakage and very slim one of spillage.
The product is thick and creamy (well it is "cream foundation" after all). I find I need a lot and I mean a lot less then what I initially thought. I dot it on my face, and blended in using my fingers. Then with a barely damp Sephora beauty sponge I quickly dab all over my face, conceal, powder, and presto done for the day. I find this foundation to be full-coverage, and for me, even-though I have imperfections, the "less is more" approach works really well.
Because amount needed to cover my face is so small (a very, very small pea size), this 30ml tube will last for a very long time. So at $55 CAD per package, it's pricey but worth it.
