Laura Mercier Silk Creme Photo Edition Foundation

That’s right, Laura Mercier have managed to reformulate and repackage one of our favourite foundations without us even realising. If you’re wondering what the difference may be, here’s our thoughts on the new edition…

The brand have packaged up the swanky new formula in some pretty sleek packaging; this seems to be the brand’s new look as most of their current releases as sporting the same luxe black tube and dark grey cap.
The formula itself is quite similar to the original, although a bit more fluid-like rather than the mousse-y finish we’re used to. The scent is also a little more subtle – we know some weren’t huge fans of the obvious scent, so we’re pleased to announce this is somewhat downplayed.

In terms of changes, the brand state that they have simply reworked the formula to ensure it’s even more moisturising, offering a dewy finish that’s camera-ready – meaning it’s ideal for wedding days, filmed events and other occasions.
The super-blendable texture and long-wearing finish is on par with the original, these were key selling points of Silk Creme and we’re glad we can still say that the base offers 12 hours of wear and a heavenly, luminous look on the skin.

So are we sold? It has to be said that the Photo Edition foundation offers everything we loved from the original Silk Creme, with a few added extras for flawless skin. It conceals uneven tone, blemishes, redness and other imperfections, while looking natural and radiant on the skin – enhancing the complexion in one quick application.

Well worth a sample on counter, whether you were a fan of the original or not!

Will you be trialling this?

    I’m awaiting the postie for this one! Can’t wait to give it try. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original. Hated the smell and it was drying on my skin, so looks like this will be an improvement for me :-)

  • Charlotte Moore

    I’ve not tried this one but I’m a big fan of the Flawless fluide one :) xx

    Definitely thinking of trying this one out! I’ve been looking for a foundation that isn’t matte finish but gives off a dewy look instead!

    Oh I really want to try it out but I’m hesitating, I want to try out the new Nars foundation too and I really don’t have the money to buy them both! x

    Never owned the original after not being sold when I had it applied at the counter, however the formula of this version appeals to me more! Will try it next time I’m at a counter X

    I haven’t tried the original but I do love the sound of this, although it’s even more expensive than my current favourite Fusion Ink foundation x

    I really want to try the matte version (#oilyskinproblems). But I’m not a huge fan of the other Laura Mercier foundations that I’ve tried, but I love the concealers!


  • Angeline

    I want to try this given how good the tinted moisturiser is!
