I think it really depends on your skin tone. Try using her concealer over the moisturizer to cover blemishes and set with a light oil-controling face powder. Test them out in the store because colors on the screen aren't always correct. They are true to color when you test them. Good luck!

As far as acne coverage this product isn't going to completely cover you trouble spots but it can minimize redness. My personal choice would be Sand because I think you should stay away from pinky undertones when trying to conceal. The Laura Mercier line has some wonderful "spot" concealers so you should definitely check them out!

I would go with Fawn if you have blemishes. I know it varies from skin tones but I use Nude to cover up my blemishes. You don't want to pick something with too much pink or mauve tones because it could just bring out the redness of blemishes rather than reducing it.

In choosing any foundation, or in this case, a tinted mositurizer - you always need to look at the base tone of your skin. What you do not want is to choose a foundation based on concealing blemishes. So, go with the color closest to your NATURAL skin tone, then accompany it with a concealer of the same family to use for the ares in need of specific attention. Apply your tinted moisturizer first, give it a minute to set. Then lightly cover any imperfections with concealer using a concealer brush and finish off with a light dusting of loose powder - I love Laura Mercier Secret Brigtening Powder, it has light reflecting particles that impart a soft glow - so pretty. Good Luck!

Actually, this isn't so great about covering up blemishes. It's better for evening out skin tone -- cheeks too red, slight circles, that type of thing. I'd suggest combining this with Amazing Concealer if you're looking to hide blemishes. Definitely test this moisturizer in natural light though. I found that I was a shade lighter than I had expected.

I like using foundation brush. I spray a little bit o thermal water over it and spray my face too. Then I just work the product in my skin with strokes and blend. When it's set a little I spray my brush again and blends areas that need it. Than I can layer more product if I need to. Sometimes I use sponge (still spra water over it too) but I like brush better. I use flat brush but I've seen a lot of videos using chisel brush with this product.

I agree with the answer stating exfoliate once a week or so (Arcona cranberry scrub is great so is the new bare minerals one) but I also think the product should come with instructions, unfortunately it doesn't.

But here they are- I bought the flawless face kit and it came with some which make the application process seamless. You really need to use the primer with this if you are having "pilling" or flaking of the moisturizer or foundation.

STEP 1) Place a dime sized amount of primer into your hand and apply to face stimulating the skin by lightly massaging in an outward and downward motion.

STEP 2) Apply a dollop of tinted moisturizer to the back of your hand then apply using a slightly damp sponge, work the moisturizer from the outer portion of your face inwards towards the nose area.

I know this sounds silly but the application technique works and makes the product go on smoothly and look perfect. Hope it works for you as well it really is a great product.

At first I used my fingers, or a sponge. Wasn't happy with results. Then I used a flat foundation brush, first putting a small dollop on the back of my hand, then using the brush to pick it up. You have to use a nice relatively thin amount on your brush, too much will cause that cake like appearance. A good brush is a must and a good tool for your make-up kit.

When you say flaking--you might mean the little granules that get stuck in tiny pores, such as around the bridge of your nose (this happens for me a lot). It's not flakes of skin per se, but flakes of product. At any rate, I thought all tinted moisturizers were like spackle at first, but then I realized you have to use a light hand and treat it more like a foundation than a moisturizer. I would definitely try a foundation brush. You may also get smoother application with a very light primer or moisturizer underneath if your skin isn't too, too oily to tolerate an extra layer.

If you're not already doing so, I would always use a toner before applying this (or any other) moisturizer. If your skin is flaking, it might help to use a good exfoliator 2-3 times a week too, in order to remove all the lose, dead skin cells. A good toner will be your best bet though.

If the product is flaking, you may want to try exfoliating at least once a week or depending on your skin type, once a month. To apply the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer you may either use your fingers and blend in a circular motion or apply with a sponge which is preferred. We hope this helps!

Although the regular tinted moisturizer may be easier to apply, if you have combination skin I would suggest you go with the oil free. I have combination/oily skin and I have not had any breakouts since using this product. Towards the end of the day though my face gets a little shiny but I just pat my face with some TP and I'm good. I think the regular would be oil overload if you have combo skin.

I bought this in Fawn and I have a medium-olive skin tone. The color turned out to be a little too dark (and as stated on the description, with a pink undertone) but if I go tanning once or twice it should be just right. My skin tans very easily and my face gets more white than the rest of my body if I don't tan. Based on other reviews and my own assumption, I think the colors for this product run slightly darker than one would expect, so you may want to consider a lighter version. If anything you get a free return/exchange! Hope this helps.

The no SPF things has happened with other lines. Tarte's Smooth Operator is the same in that it does contain the SPF, but as previously mentioned, it cannot be labeled as such in Canada.

I was speaking with a sephora consultant (in Vancouver CANADA) yesterday about the spf labelling on the oil free formula (I was considering buying it -definitely going to, based on the sample I looove it) anyways she told me that because of border restrictions between USA and Canada they cant label that even though it has SPF in it they can't label so. I believe her simply because I work in retail too and weird stuff like that happens with products coming in and going out between the US concerning border crossing allll the time.

The fact that it is oil-free is what causes oxidization, that weird orangey color. Sometimes it only looks orange in artificial light, but might look normal outside. Also, you can try getting a shade lighter. If you really like the shade "Nude" then I suggest sticking to the regular LM TM.

The oil free moisturizer does tend to look orange on me too. I just use less of the moisturizer. It still provides excellent coverage, but doesn't look as orange. Also consider blending the makeup with a sponge to get more even coverage. Another excellent tip is to take your favorite moisturizer (non-tinted) and dab a tiny amount onto your palms. Rub your palms together to get a thin layer all over your palms, then dab your palms all over your face. It will make your skin somewhat dewey, and it will make your makeup look very natural.

I have used both the oil-free version and the traditional version of this moisturizer and while I didn't notice a difference in color, there is definitely a difference in consistency.

Oil free version is 1.7 oz. I've tried all 3 products: TM coverage is the lightest, oil free, better coverage and staying power, less greasy look after couple hours than regular TM. Doesn't dry skin out. Foundation is lightweight, less greasy, better staying power and coverage that TM. I use Nude in TM and Warm Ivory in Mosturizing foundation is the same color. TM look more natural, more "no make up look" than foundation which is better for going out events and photos.

The tinted moisturiser is good for everyday use, has spf and gives good coverage. the oil-free version is great for combo skin or skin that is on the oily side. The foundation is a heavier version of the moisturiser. It covers more of the imperfections than the latter. i find that foundation has a broader range of shades to suit your skintone as well.

The foundation is amazing at covering blemishes and acne scars. It is a product that you will not regret. Hope ths helped :)

I have acne prone skin and this is great. It's actually for acne prone skin. Foundations break me out. This one has a nice coverage which is buildable. I love it. Try a sample from one of their locations before purchasing to see if you like it. If you purchase and you don't like it Sephora is great about returns that's why I only buy my stuff there.

This product gives a really light coverage. I have small blemishes and minor imperfections and it makes them less visible. I'm ok with that. But when I had blemishes all over my cheeks this product almost did nothing to cover them. I think you should try this one with some really good concealer to hide blemishes or a foundation that provides some good coverage.

wear this. It does cover my acne scars without seeming too heavy.

I have the same problem and used to wear Laura Mercier's oil free foundation every day. It was heavy to cover my problem areas but I think that this product does just as good if not better a job. It's build able and stays on for a long time. I mix the oil free tinted moisturizer with the regular tinted moisturizer when I want more moisture. I also use her primer and translucent powder with both products just to ensure it stays put. get a sample and try it out!
