A Compact Spin on a Cult-Classic

Trying new products is one of the biggest perks of my job, but I have a few staple items that no newcomer can replace. For me, one of those must-have, irreplaceable products is Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. If you were to tell me I wouldn’t be running to purchase a new tube of the best-selling tinted moisturizer upon my last few squirts, I wouldn’t believe you. But truth be told, I may be passing up on the tried and trusted tube.

That’s because the best-selling, NewBeauty award-winning tinted moisturizer is now available in a convenient compact—mirror, sponge and all.

If you’re not familiar with the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer formula, the lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer provides buildable coverage with a hint of color for a very natural-looking finish. It feels light on the skin and applies evenly to perfect your complexion without settling into lines or blemishes. The coverage lasts all day long, and even better, it includes SPF 20 so your skin can really be all set in just one step.

For those who have been using the original for years, don’t worry, it’s the same formula you’ve come to love, just a bit more convenient for touchups or on the go. There are no rules: you can still use your fingers, if you wish. Or, if the travel-unfriendly, sometimes a little bit messy tube didn’t spark your fancy, give the new compact a try—the new Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 20 ($45) is available in 12 different shades at makeup counters now.
