Laura mercier silk creme foundation: thoughts?

I recently bought the Laura mercier silk creme foundation £30 from John Lewis. I bought this because many youtubers and bloggers had said how amazing it was! This is how it is described on Laura mercier website:

An innovative full coverage foundation that makes the skin look luminous and rich. By combining a special collection of silk proteins, tea extracts and treated mica, Laura has created a luxurious formula that leaves skin hydrated and protected with a radiant, timeless glow.

This foundation is gorgeous and I cannot deny that the finish is beautiful (though not dewy on my somewhat dry skin) but for some reason I cannot get on with it, it sits on my skin and doesn't absorb and the coverage doesn't seem that great.

I have applied it with my beauty blender as it it designed to be used with a sponge.
Iv also tried with my mac foundation brush and sigma flat top kabuki F80 and it just doesn't seen to want to work.

Have you tried this? Why were your thoughts? How do you apply this foundation?

Thanks for reading.

  1. Hi..that’’s weird it has an opposite effect for me. It just glides onto my skin, and looks really natural once set…but it gets too LUMINOUS for me, no powder can hold he shine down…but I do love this foundation, especially its long lasting power!! Try mixing a drop of Estee Lauders ADR serum or any serum…it’s changes the way the foundation sits on skin!!
