I’m excited to confirm that the rumours are true… a compact version of Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturiser will be available in the UK in September 2012. The best selling tinted moisturiser - renowned as one of the most popular formulas ever - will come in a lightweight crème formula compact with SPF 20.
Like the original, the compact promises sheer to moderate, buildable coverage with a natural, dewy finish, suitable for all skin types. I normally steer away from compacts as I find they don’t work well with dry skins, but have hope that this one might be a winner. And while there’s no point in opting for tinted moisturiser if you’re after a foundation finish, I expect that the buildable element will be greater with a compact.
Available in an impressive 12 shades (Porcelain, Blush, Nude, Bisque, Sand, Fawn, Almond, Tawny, Caramel, Tan, Walnut, Mocha), it comes with a custom designed sponge applicator. It’s available in the US now at LauraMercier.com if you’d like a look at the shades.
The compact contains 7.50 g/0.26 oz as opposed to 50ml/1.7 fl oz in the original tube. The price will be the same, £33.
The new Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Crème Compact will be available at Laura Mercier UK retailers nationwide beginning September 2012, priced £33.
