Questions & Answers for Laura Mercier Mineral Flawless Face Kit

Question
BE kit vs. LM kit
I am considering buying this LM mineral kit because it is more natural than the LM tinted moisturizer kit but I was curious whether this was better/worse than/about the same as the BE starter kit.

I bought BE and I did not like it! After I wore it for about an hour every pore and wrinkle in my face began to show!

I have two kits from Laura Mercier, the mineral powder kit and the tinted moisturizer kit, and comparing the two, i have combination/oily skin, and even though the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer kit i bought was oil free, I felt it made my skin look shinny/sweaty, and I had to layer it to get the coverage i needed, and i don't think it really is supposed to be something that is going to cover up blotches/scarring because its essentially just a moisturizer with a tint of color. SO if your looking for soft, light feeling coverage, I would go with this kit. Especially if you have oily skin, you want to go with a powder.
ALSO, i've been a faithful user of B.E products for years, I have quite the collection all over face colors and powders from them and when you layer B.E it almost starts to feel like chalk on your face. I feel as though I'm betraying B.E. because i've been using it for years, but this is just better in my experience!
Good luck!

I never cared for the Bare Essentials makeup. I found it very heavy and cake-like when I applied it. I also do not like the brushes that Bare Essentials sells - the Laura Mercier brushes are a night and day difference for the better. As I was once told, Laura Mercier is the Cadillac of makeup products, particularly with respect to the Flawless Face.

I like this better than Bare Essentials. BE didn't have the right color for me (Light was too yellow) and it created lines around my eyes! Also, the LM tinted moisturizers are also awesome. I like everything by Laura Mercier. It's one of my favorite brands that I keep going back to because its so natural.

hi- the BE kit had things in it that i did not use. The LM kit is really more bang for the buck. Better quality products and brushes and the product is very pigment rich so it lasts a long time.

Both Bare Minerals and Laura Mercier have wonderful mineral makeup; Laura Mercier's Mineral Powder SPF 15 has more of a matte finish (comparable to the new matte version of Bare Minerals) and does not require a translucent powder to set.

In addition, this kit comes with a Mineral Primer, which is designed specifically to improve the wear time and look of mineral makeup. As both Laura Mercier and Bare Minerals are some of our best selling lines of makeup, either line would be appropriate for you based on your preferences.

Question
How messy is this set?
I've tried BE and it's pretty messy so I hesitate to purchase it again. I'm really considering this set and wanted to know if it is just as messy as BE. Also, I'm slightly confused on others answers to what color to purchase. It sounds like the Real Sand kit is really light and that the Natural Beige kit isn't intensely dark. I don't want to look pasty but I also don't live anywhere near a Sephora to go in and get help. Thoughts?

This is definitely not as messy as the BE foundation. What I like about these containers is that it has a sliding panel to cover the holes. What I've been doing is tapping out some of the powder into the cover and then sliding the panel closed and tapping out the rest into the cover. That way there isn't any extra waiting to fall out. I found that I only need a tap or two of the powder into the cover. When you swirl the powder in the cover with the brush, I guess it can still be a bit messy... but I haven't had any trouble at all with this.

I think I was either a NC30-35 in MAC's studio fix and I'm using the Real Sand color. Right now the NC35 is a tad bit too dark on me but the Real Sand is perfect. I hope that helps!

I found the product very messy, the packaging of the mineral powder is just too small for the brush. Makes a mess all over our counter. Loved the product would tell my friends to buy it. Great deal if you don't mind the mess and are just wanting to try out the mineral make-up from LM

I am pretty fair with pink undertones, but in the summer i get a slight tan (very slight). i purchased the real sand kit and have been extremely happy with it. I thought it would be too dark, but it seems like it could work for a wide range of skin tones.

Since it is a powder, it can be messy. Honestly, I'll take the mess any day to have my skin look this good! I've used BE and the illuminating powder in this kit is light years ahead of BE mineral veil. It has a slight sheen to it which makes my skin look better than it has in years! I highly recommend this kit.

hi- i wear BE in medium. Sand in the LM kit did look light, but was very natural looking on, just does not have the same pink undertone. It is not as messy, as the way it shakes out of the jar has more control than the BE. Plus- the illuminating powder is wonderful-

Question
Which LM kit is better?
I'm getting tired of BE make up, I feel like it doesn't stay on for very long. I've had a friend use LM make up on me, but never actually owned it myself. Which kit would be better to start off with, this one, or the one that comes with the tinted moisturiser? I tend to always have blemishes, but they don't cover my entire face and my complexion tends to be uneven and normal to oily. Recommendations?

I would say that this product may leave your face oily. It def. gave me a dewy look and I do not have oily skin. I used to use BE as well (like you) and wanted to give this a try after hearing so much about how wonderful it is. Maybe just try this mineral primer (which I LOVED) underneath the mineral powder you have now and see if that helps!

If you are in love with your foundation, I would try the oil blot kit she has. It is multiples of good products in nice sizes. If you want to try something new, and one of the two colors fits you, this is a great kit to try. The sizes are generous, and you get all the products. I really liked her powder, and the primer did a good job keeping it on. This is not a 16 hour product, but touch ups were easy.

I used BE for 4 years and it did work well for the time being until I broke out with acne (I don't think it was due to using BE) and I wanted to find another makeup that would not aggravate my acne. I have very oily skin, and right LM works better in keeping my face clear. I live in the Inland Empire where in the summer it gets 105+ degrees and I hate my face shining up! So far, I rate LM as better than BE and both cost the same at Sephora.

Coverage?
I wonder what coverage does it give, compare to the tinted moisturizer. Do you need any liquid foundation before using the mineral powder, or does it look good enough using the powder alone? Thanks!

For BE and LM, all you need is primer under the makeup. I use a moisturizer first then their primer (included in the kit) then the powder. LM primer is oil-free (I didn't check BE). So far, my breakouts have receded and even though my skin is prone to breaking out and is super oily, I haven't had any problems with LM.

Definitely better coverage than the liquid foundation and more natural looking. The bruah in the kit is great but they only give you one. I personally like two one for each powder, Seems to last all day and you can touch up without it looking overdone or cakey.

No tinted moisturizer is necessary. The included concealer is all you need for under eyes and any obvious red spots (very little goes a long way), then just finish with the mineral powder and that's it!

I don't wear any type of foundation or other powder. These products don't provide heavy coverage, though. So if you're looking for something other than sheer and lightweight coverage, you probably should try something else.

Which color is closer to Tender Rose?
Hi, I went to Sephora and the SA suggested Tender Rose which is not an option in this kit. She insisted that Real Sand and Natural Beige are not for my skin tone.

I'll still like to try the kit first as it has several items, which color do you think
is closest to Tender Rose? Thank you.

I have medium skin tone so I got the Natural Beige. I'm not sure what color is close to pink rose. I used other brands before like L'oreal and BE and Natural Beige was pretty close to my skin tone. Get a color that's similar to other colors you've used before.

Real Sand would be the closest to Tender Rose. Tender Rose has more of a pink undertone, however, while both Natural Beige and Real Sand have yellow undertones. Nevertheless, Real Sand would be closest. Good luck, I hope this kit works out for you!

Question
How long does it last?
I have worn BM for 3 years and I find it disappointing that at the end of my day (9am to 5pm or longer) it would fade off. My cleansing cloth has a minuscule amount of the mineral powder on the sheet. The matte would not stay matte. It seemed that I needed to re-touch throughout the day just so I could keep my face protected from the sun. Has anyone experienced this from BM and/or LM???

In this comparison both products are about the same. I like LM better because it is more natural looking with great coverage. It lasts about the same and if you have to retouch all day you may want to look into a matifying primer or change your daytime moisturizer to oil free with an SPF for skin protection.
