As a lady who’s constantly on-the-go, I often have very little time for my morning beauty routine. Some days I run from home to the gym to work, and more than once I’ve forgotten a staple product in my regimen: a tube of tinted moisturizer. But now I’ve found a convenient way to tote around my favorite item— Laura Mercier’s new purse-friendly compact.
Slated for September release, Mercier’s newest tinted moisturizer will be re-conceived as a super light cream tucked inside a sporty compact. It’ll be available in 12 shades identical to their liquid offerings, and the formula packs broad spectrum SPF 20 for UVA/UVB protection, along with skin-protecting and brightening vitamin C and E. For anyone who finds that even oil-free tinted moisturizers leave them with a slight sheen (like myself), this may be right up your alley. The cream color goes on silky smooth, and feels surprisingly light, but the finish is matte and more powder-like while still offering the same coverage.
I was a fan of the original Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, so you can bet I’m loving this more portable version, which I can throw in a gym bag or even a clutch for quick touchups. (It’s the perfect addition to my upcoming Fashion Week survival kit). The compacts ($45) are actually available at Laura Mercier retailers now.
