Back to the Compact-Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer

For the last so many years my skin has been unbelievably dry, and finally it has normalized.

I still use a power-packed moisturizer but I haven’t used foundation in any form of compact in years. ( I used to be a Lancome’ Dual-Finish girl).

Regular powder, cream to powder, liquid to matte powder finish—nope, nep,nah.

Seriously, I missed how easy it is to use a puff and just powder foundation on.

I began looking longingly at the compacts a few months ago.

I even tried Laura’s Tinted Moisturizer Compact–the salespeople put on Nude or Sand, but I just didn’t care for it-

But you know, the lights in the stores…I can never really see what the foundation or any of the makeup actually looks like until I get outside or in my car mirror.

That’s when the proof hits the pudding–uh–you know what I mean.

So the other day when I had my makeup put on at NM’s event, LM’s national artist put on the compact in Fawn.

And lo and behold – we gotta match!  I looked at the color in my car mirror and I never want to admit I look tanner than I want to be-but the color really works.

The last few days since, I’ve joyously been applying the compact foundation (technically tinted moisturizer in a compact) over my Laura Mercier Radiance Primer.

I only put a light light light dusting of MakeUp Forever’s HD Powder to set and finish and I’m off.

So easy.

If life were as easy as compact makeup.
