First off, I should start by saying I heard a LOT, I mean a LOT of beauty gurus raving about this product.
But I was never really tempted to actually get it and try it myself.

Since I have a lot of blemishes and scars, I need a good coverage foundation so I can skip concealer. I was just sticking to MUFE HD foundation, or Mat Velvet , and I even fell in love with LM oil free foundation for a while but they just stopped working their wonders on me. One day I saw a guru putting that foundation on camera, and I was totally sold at that moment. So I ran to Sephora and purchased it.

First day I tried it on my friend who already has clear skin, it looked amazing on her, giving her an even coverage without making it look cakey. This foundation starts sort of thick and as you blend it out, your skin looks even more flawless. I tend to pat on my foundation in a think layer so I can build a coverage without caking it on. But with this foundation, I could just blend it all over the face with a brush and I was ready to go.

For someone with a troubled skin, this is a great thing when you're getting ready in the morning so you don't have to spend at least 10 minutes making your skin look perfect.

This foundation is so velvety it's unbelievable. It just literally, GLIDES on your skin without a hesitation. It feels amazing if you put it on with fingers as well.

On the bottle, it says "Luminous Coverage" and they're NOT lying. My skin looked glowy and dewy but not oily or greasy. It catches light so beautifully you have this natural looking glow to your skin.
OH, and a note when you're picking your shade, don't go with what the swatch looks like on your hand, get someone in the store to do a color match for you, because it's not exactly what it looks like when you first squeeze it out. I heard someone say that they went with a color way lighter than their skin tone but it oxidized darker, but mine looks a little yellow-orange (cream beige) but after I put it on my face it becomes a little paler and exactly my skin tone.

Hands down this is the best foundation I've used so far, forget all the other foundations I've tried.
I'm very picky with things I put on my skin, so you can take my word for it.

It's oil-free so I don't find that it breaks me out but I do suggest you blend it out nicely so your skin can breath a little under the foundation, because.. no matter how good of a foundation you use if you put a lot, and have it on for a long time you're guaranteed to break out regardless of the product.

so I give this foundation a 5 out of 5 without a doubt.

I hope this review helped you and answered all your questions about this product. :)

LOVE this foundation. I've been searching for a good, natural looking medium-full coverage foundation for the longest time and everything I've tried has been too sheer for my needs. I have acne-prone, combination skin and this is the foundation that makes my skin look the best. It's quite pricey for a foundation (the most expensive one I've tried and I've tried quite a few) but it's totally worth it in my books. You get a tiny bit more product than most foundations (1.17 oz instead of 1 oz) and you really do need the tiniest amount so I think a tube will last a long time. The only thing I've noticed is that it can look a bit powdery in really bright sunlight sometimes but that goes away as you wear it and then it just looks very natural. Highly recommend this product!

Laura Mercier may be my new favorite makeup brand. I won't lie, Laura Mercier products are quite expensive, but the quality is amazing! I had heard so many amazing things about the Silk Creme Foundation, but I was afraid it might be too moisturizing for my oily skin. Despite being moisturizing, this foundation gives me flawless, full coverage with minimal shine. It's also incredibly lightweight for such a full coverage foundation. I'm also obsessed with Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer. Normally, primers slightly greasy or oily, but this primer has more of a gel consistency. This primer is great for oily skin and my new favorite.
