Questions & Answers for Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

Question
anything like some-kind-of-gorgeous by Benefit?
I love the Benefit product, Some kind of gorgeous, but it does not have sunscreen. I wonder if the texture and sheerness of Laura Mercier's product is similar?

The Some Kind of Gorgeous is more of a cream foundation that turns to powder. Not my fav. This is a pressed oil. It doesn't feel as dry as the Some Kind of Gorgeous, I thought that was more for oily skin and the LM for dry skin

I've tried both, so I hope I can help!

This Laura Mercier compact tinted moisturizer is loads more moisturizing. It stays dewy and is much kinder to flaky or dry skin. Some Kinda Gorgeous sets to a more powdery finish and emphasizes dry flakes on my face.

Some Kinda Gorgeous is better than the Laura Mercier TM compact at initially controlling oil and blurring pores. However, after a few hours SKG breaks down and pools into my pores anyway. SKG also oxidizes on me throughout the day, while Laura Mercier TM compact does not.

Coverage is equivalent. Both are sheer and help even out skintone without really covering freckles, acne, etc. I feel that Laura Mercier TM compact looks more natural after layering than Some Kinda Gorgeous.

They both work well when applied with fingers, a brush, or a sponge. I prefer fingers for both.

Both cremes start firm but get softer and "melt" as I run a finger over the surface. Personally, I think the texture of Laura Mercier TM compact is smoother and more refined.

Smell! I could never stand the smell of Some Kinda Gorgeous! Laura Mercier compact TM does not smell.

Laura Mercier TM compact costs twice as much as Some Kinda Gorgeous when you look at it per ounce.

Personally, despite the high price tag, I lean more towards Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer compact. I just feel like it's more refined, performs better on my skin, and is more forgiving. Plus, SPF, no bad smell, and 12 shades!

Question
How long does one compact last with daily use and does it dry out?
I received the free deluxe sample and I really like it but if it will dry out or be used up in a few months I can't pay such a high price.

I don't think it "dries out" per se, but if your face is not well hydrated when you use it, this product will not hydrate your face and so your face might look overly made up because it can be dry.

It's not solid in the way of a powder, but I'd still consider it solid. It definitely wouldn't be considered a liquid so it should be fine.

Question
Is the color of this solid formula the same as the regular tinted moisturizer?
Sorry if that seems like a ridiculous question; I regularly use Sand, however the Sand in the compact seems quite darker than what I'm used to. Just wanted to see if anyone else had this issue?

Yes, same here! I just wrote about it in my review. Was a little disappointed that the color standards are different across the products. Especially because I like to buy online. I expected a slightly color variance, but not several shades differences.

I jut left a review to this effect -- I don't use the liquid, but the Sand is very dark. It's not light to medium at all, it's definitely medium, and because this is opaque and not liquid-y, it comes off as a pretty solid medium since your skin tone will not show through.

I use my fingers. I wash them first. I find that is the best way to use this, and I first use argan oil on my face to help spread and sheer this out.

yes!! the sponge just eats up the creme and its not so great. i use the sheseido's foundation brush. its compact and spread evenly. since it is compact, you have more control and gets every corner and curves on your face. plus, the brush won't eat up much of your creme and it applie it on your skin more.

i dont understand the weekly special posted on your site for Laura Mercier cream compact at all.

You get the free $16 value travel-sized compact (it contains 0.09 oz. vs. the full-sized 0.26 oz.) when you buy $25 worth of merchandise from sephora.com. Your purchase does not have to contain Laura Mercier products, it can be anything as long as the shopping basket totals $25 or more. You have to enter the code "compact" at checkout to get the free compact--if it works, you will see this compact added to your basket.
