Before the advent of bb and cc creams, beauty lovers reached for their old pal tinted moisturiser on the daily. The first no-make-up make-up that afforded a healthy luminosity and just a smattering of coverage. With the feel of a moisturiser - nourishing and easy to blend - without feeling heavy like a foundation.
Advancements in skincare technology and smarter formulas - designed to not just cover but also correct uneven skin tone - superseded tinted moisturiser. Yet, there is one tinted moisturiser who’s popularity shows no signs of abating. Cue: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser.
It's fair to say that Laura Mercier's tinted moisturiser is the original and the best. Margot Robbie uses it religiously, telling British Vogue it got passed down to her from make-up guru Patti Dubroff.
The A-list testimonials don’t end there. Meghan Markle counts it amongst her all-time favourite products, revealing in a 2016 interview that it gives her skin a “dewy glow.” Not only do we love the fact that it contains skin-loving ingredients, but more than 2,400 customers also agree that this product is worth the $70 price tag.
Not already a Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser fan? Prepare to be won over by the creamy effortless face base that has become a staple among celebrities, models, editors and make-up artists everywhere. Its powerful blend of vitamins C and E help protect your skin from damaging environmental effect and offers anti-ageing benefits when used over a period of time.
