Aimee Song’s book Capture Your Style and Laura Mercier’s oil free tinted moisturizer are my newest purchases. I was not much of a reader, but I was really excited to buy this book and I sincerely enjoy my time reading it. Aimee Song (SongofStyle) is a blogger that influences me and who I really admire, so if anyone wants to dive into building a platform in the vast world of Instagram, pick this book up next time you’re in the book store or buy it here. This Laura Mercier product is one I have been eyeing for a long time, but I finally gave in and decided to buy it.
This is everything I thought it would be, plus more. I walked into Sephora hoping to buy the regular tinted moisturizer, but I left with the oil free tinted moisturizer. (A tip when deciding to buy a product is to ask a Sephora worker for help; they apply the product directly on your skin to help find out your shade and how it feels on your skin) I realized the oil free one has more functionality for me because it is more buildable for those days I would need a foundation rather than a tinted moisturizer. One of the things I appreciate is that it has a SPF of 20. When I was younger I never touched sunscreen, which resulted in multiple sun spots on my face. So, to those who overlook it too, I shall pass some words of wisdom: don’t skip out on sunscreen. Compared to my last BB cream and most products I have used on my face, this product is really lightweight, which is essential for me. This tinted moisturizer gives me an instant brightness and color back to my skin. If you guys know me by now, you know how important skincare is for me and this product doesn’t break me out, hydrates my skin, and controls my oils; it’s literally perfect. It covers just enough so my face still looks likes real skin; it’s pretty much the best product for the no makeup makeup look. Plus, there are so many shades I know for a fact there is one that will match your complexion. I quickly adopted this into my everyday look and I am looking forward to trying more products from Laura Mercier. (Soon I will be sharing with you all my everyday makeup look) Out of the multiple face products I have used, so far this is my absolute favorite. If you guys want to try it out, buy it here and if you have any more questions, ask them!
