Hey my loves! Its been a while since i’ve done a product review and i thought what better product could there be than the new Laura Mercier flawless fusion foundation that ive had my eyes on for quite some time. Ive seen many influencers put the “15 hour wear claim” to test and it looks very promising.
If you guys didnt know already, over the summer i put a stop to foundation. Mostly because due to breakouts and the feeling of foundation on a hot summer’s day was enough to embrace my bare face. I’ve really been loving the skipping out foundation routine, so the foundation has to be pretty phenomenal to persuade me to start wearing it again!
This foundation claims to provide ” all the wear, all the coverage, without the weight”. It’s high performance wear thats ” sweat, humidity, water and transfer resistant” with a weightless texture that feels like “second skin”. When i came across this i felt like it fit the description of what i need. A second skin feeling so i wouldnt feel weird wearing foundation again but giving me enough full coverage.
I brought home two testers, one was in the shade Buff and the other Macadamia. After trying buff (the darker shade), it matched perfectly with my forehead but in different lighting it was too dark for the rest of my face. Macademia looked too light when swatched on to the skin however when blended in and after highlighting and contouring it balanced in nicely. So I went ahead and bought Macademia to test how I feel about it, whether it does really feel like second skin and if it lives up to the long lasting claim!
• At 7am i applied the foundation using my all time favourite Morphe M439 and using a beauty blender after. I set my under eye concealer, nose, the area under my nose my forehead and smile lines which are the places i tend to get oily throughout the day. I finished off using my Nyx dewy setting spray
• Throughout the day i felt like i could touch my skin without my skin feeling tacky or any foundation rubbing off and it felt like an invisible smooth layer. It also covered up the redness around my cheeks and nose very well and didnt budge
• I did notice my nose getting oily even after setting with powder but the rest of the face was perfectly intact. 10 hours in and i didnt feel like i needed to take my makeup off. A childish word yes but my skin didnt feel “icky” (thats the only word to describe it😂)
• At the end of the day about 9pm so thats 14 hours of wear i noticed the foundation seperated on my nose and i could see skin peeking through but honestly it wasnt a big deal for me. I was still happy about how it kept my oiliness at bay and how it felt so lightweight! I would never wear foundation for more than 14 hours anyway but i was still pleased with how it held up🙌
Overall, i think this foundation lives up to its claims and its made me excited to wear foundation again. I didnt feel as if there was a heavy layer on that would transfer everywhere and it was super lightweight. I cant emphasise it enough!. It looked and even felt like soft even supple skin! I think its a great buy and would definitely recommend to grab a couple of samples, see how the shade looks like in natural light, in low light or sun light and give this foundation a go! It might just become a staple in your collection❤
Do let me know if you have any further questions and i shall see you in my next post!
