When Influenster approached me to try out a few Laura Mercier products, you could say I was pretty ecstatic.
While I may not be the next Jeffree Star or Nikkie Tutorials, I have been pretty obsessed with makeup since 8th grade. I may not wear a full face every single day– because let’s be real who has time for that before work, I’d much rather sleep in– I still thrive off watching gurus weekly and throwing on a full face when I go out or need a pick-me-up for the workday.
I’ve never been the person to really splurge on too many products. A nice lipstick and highlighter can last me forever. I know that there are drugstore priced products that work pretty well and make sense on my student loans payback budget.
Illuminating Natural Tinted Moisturizer
I have been trying to find the perfect foundation alternative for MONTHS. No joke, I have been using the same Maybelline foundation (not the same bottle, that’d be disgusting) for going on 6 years now. While I love the Fit Me, it’s pretty heavy for my ’22-year-old I work every day and am really tired all the time’ lifestyle.
The Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector is the holy grail I have been looking for!
When Laura Mercier said “perfect skin tint,” they were not kidding. This product is lightweight but buildable, something that shocked me for a tinted moisturizer. Perfect for someone (like me) who likes a fuller coverage on some areas but don’t need it all over.

I am absolutely loving these Lara Mercier products! Their primer helps any foundation stay in all day and enhances natural radiance. Their new tinted moisturizer is the perfect light to medium coverage and it’s buildable! And you can’t forget the iconic cult favorite power that has locked in my makeup for all day wear in this summer heat. **these products were given to me for free for testing and review #TintedMoisturizer #LauraMercier #contest #complimentary @lauramercier @Influenster
It gives you a DEWY finish. I think that’s because it’s a moisturizer and that’s what the trend is now a day. I personally like a more matte t-zone and then dewy rest, but that’s because I have the most combination skin out of anyone I know. However, setting it with some translucent powder and poping on a highlight for a little extra shine is perfect.
This product also has SPF 30 in it. I was not the person up until recently to care about sunscreen for everyday use. That’s changing as I realize just how important sun protection is. This, layered with my trusty Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Face Moisturizer, it’s the perfect combination.
Partnering the Natural Skin Perfector Tinted Moisteruizer with the Laura Mercier Prime, Set, Radiance gives you that perfect natural glow. The primer has shimmer in it, which alone gives your skin a flawless finish.
My only gripe– and I think it’s that I lost my tan before I received this product, is that it seems to oxidize on me– mainly where I get oily. However, if I layer over a powder when this starts to happen, it’s 100% fine again.
Baking the places where I get super oily and the oxidization happens with the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder was honestly a game-changer. This product was locked down and a light dusting of any other powder for touch-ups when I wore it all day was all I needed.
I would 100% recommend this product to someone looking for an everyday foundation alternative. It’s perfect for every day, from work to a long night out.
