Favorite Thing #105 - Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer (Oil Free)

I have been waiting to post this favorite thing because I really wanted to make sure I loved it. Sometimes when I first try a product I love it but then after several months I'm not as big of a fan. Well this is for sure a favorite thing - Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer (Oil Free). I used to wear Bobbi Brown Even Finish Foundation (Oil-Free) and when I went to pick up more at the Bobbi Brown counter in Bloomingdales I wasn't getting waited on after 10 minutes so I decided to go to the Laura Mercier counter where I got 5 star service. The make up artist introduced me to the tinted moisterizer and I decided to give it a try. I like it because it's oil-free and really light weight. And the added bonus is that there is SPF 20 in it as well.

Some of my favorite blogs also love this foundation - Epic Makeup and My Wardrobe Today. In addition to the foundation I also have the foundation primer which I really like. It helps the foundation lay better and helps it last a bit longer through out the day.
The foundation also has a great kit available - Laura Mercier Flawless Face Kit. It's great for travel and you get a few extra bonuses (concealor, etc.) as well. It is only available at Sephora and offered at a great price of $65.

The kit includes -
1.0 oz Foundation Primer (Step 1)
1.0 oz Tinted Moisturizer (Step 2)
Translucent Loose Setting Powder (Step 3 and 4)
0.21 oz Undercover Pot Shade #3
Secret Camouflage Brush
Camouflage Powder Brush
Velour Puff
Egg-shaped Sponge

Still LOVE Favorite Thing #5 - Bubble Bath nail polish. With spring right around the corner this nail polish will be used in my manicures lots and lots. If you don't have a bottle I definitely recommend you get one.

I've bene taking advantage of this $65 deal at Sephora for a while now. I love it! And it maybe dopey but I save the powder and egg puff and put them in little gift bags here and there since I don't use them. But the brushes and product rock~
