Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide* joins Smooth Finish Foundation Powder to create a new foundation pillar for Laura Mercier. There are 24 shades available and yesterday I was matched with my perfect one - Shell. The formula is very light and easy to wear with a powder-finish, so I expect people with oily skin will especially love it. What is really unusual about this foundation is that it has a bi-phase formula meaning you have to shake it vigorously for at least 10 seconds and then tap on the surface to get a fresh dose of colour. I like to apply my foundation using my fingertips, because it helps me to achieve natural effect (heat from my hands literally melts foundation into my skin) and this Fluide is perfect for that. It gives light coverage - goes together with the Laura Mercier's philosophy around The Flawless Face, concept that making skin look perfect is the first and foremost important thing a woman can do to achieve a great look by enhancing natural beauty and blurring imperfections rather than getting full on face make up. All in all I really like this foundation, it's comfortable to wear, gives me a flawless natural matte finish and is long-wear, humidity-proof and sweat-proof.
