There’s a new Laura Mercier foundation on the market and it specifically speaks to fans of makeup-skincare hybrids who are looking for coverage and a weightless finish. The Real Flawless Weightless Perfecting Foundation blurs the line between makeup and skin by delivering medium-buildable coverage, blurring ingredients and a dose of antioxidants.
There are blurring bamboo silk powders in the product, along with camelia seed and cacao extract, which help to bolster the skin against damage from external stressors.
The waterproof and fade-proof formula delivers a finish that lasts in a shade range that will suit most. Tayaba Jafri, global beauty director at Laura Mercier, says “You know when you have your makeup done with a full-coverage foundation, because it’s a special occasion—usually tinted moisturizer is really not enough, especially if you’re gonna be photographed—and you have that feeling of the full-coverage foundation on your face? Cut that down to like 10 percent with Real Flawless.”
