The new Laura Mercier Silk Creme


Laura Mercier Silk Cream Moisturising Photo Edition review swatch photo

I was really sad when I heard mutterings that my favourite foundation of all time was about to be reformulated and remixed. As someone who once they find something they love they wear it religiously I panicked. Goodbye Laura Mercier Silk Creme and in swung the Laura Mercier Silk Cream Moisturising Photo Edition foundation.

So. Basically it’s very similar but it’s taken out the matte element of the foundation completely. It’s a very radiant and glowy base which my skin seems to be loving. I’d been noticing for a few months my skin just wasn’t loving the dryness of the OG LMSC. It started to cake around my nose and forehead and despite my best efforts to keep it looking flawless and non cakey. It just stopped working for me as well as it used to. The coverage is medium to full, which is exactly what I like. The glow gives a beautiful lit from within vibe which Im currently really digging. My only niggle is that it contains Shea butter which is a known breakout trigger for me but it’s not done anything so far.

New favourite foundation? Well, I guess so. I have to accept my favourite is long gone and this new thing has come in to take it’s place. I really do like it but there is just a little something holding me back from singing it’s praises from the roof tops.

  3. I bought the oil free version which the girl on counter told me was the exact same as the old formula but I'm not convinced. There's just something that's not quite the same, like you I loved the original but there's something... off about the new formulas.

  7. It's like when someone replaces your favourite character, you still love the show but it's not quite the same! Lovely review though, it sounds great for a dewy summer glow

  17. Oh! I wasn't a fan of the old one, which I found cake and very drying on my already dry skin, but this sounds a lot better! I might have to get a sample and see what I think!

  30. How To Get Your Lost Husband Back

    “LOVE is the key to LIFE”. That was the word from Dr Ukaka when I consulted his powerful Love Temple. I married the wrong man; I realized that after four years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr Ukaka from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him via freedomlovespell@hotmail.com and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and trusts in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr Ukaka. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr Ukaka told us “LOVE is the key to LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr Ukaka is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank you great Dr Ukaka and your Oracle for helping us via freedomlovespell@hotmail.com and I will keep spreading this message to people in need of help. also contact him for help.website address: freedomlovespelltemple.yolasite.com ;
