Laura Mercier is one of the foremost authorities on tinted moisturizer. Now, you can buy her classic, best-selling formula in a compact. 

Tinted moisturizer, in a compact? I was skeptical about the concept, but Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20 in Nude ($45) has defied my expectations. The super convenient compact is easy to use, flattering, and offers surprisingly good coverage.

I tried a sample size of the Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact in the shade Nude, which is described as a "light beige for fair to light skin tones." It looks very warm when swatched but blends out well to match my light, slightly warm skin.

I've found that I get the best coverage if I use a foundation brush to apply Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20 in Nude. One layer offers sheer-to-medium coverage, but this product is extremely buildable. It can give coverage like a medium foundation while still feeling very lightweight. I also love how easy it is to dip back into the compact if you need to cover spots here and there.

The product description says that it has a dewy finish, but Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20 in Nude sets to a soft matte finish on me. This is fabulous, as I have very oily skin! I've been wearing this product to school every day and it gives a nice, natural look that lasts well.

Though the idea of tinted moisturizer in a compact might sound strange, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact is an innovation that works. Combining convenience with quality, this product is great to use at home and on the go to give your face an easy, flawless finish.

  1. cool! I would be skeptical of the compact/creme, too, because they're usually really dry or really oily--I guess because of the solid formula. I love the coverage of this tinted moisturizer. You and I have very similar complexions, so I really love your reviews. I'm definitely gonna try to find a sample of this.

    1. That's so cool that we have similar complexions :) I should send you my Sephora + Pantone Color Matching results so you can see some specific shades to try!

      I got this Laura Mercier TM from Sephora using the promo code: COMPACT. I just checked and it looks like this shade is no longer available :( I bet you can still track down Nude somewhere though.

      Thanks for reading <3
