Any beauty product that makes me look like a million bucks with very little effort is a must-have in my book. I discovered Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer years ago, and since then it has been a staple in my makeup arsenal. Master of the “Flawless Face” Laura Mercier created a tinted moisturizer that actually makes your skin look better than it would with foundation — healthy, glowing, dewy and like you aren’t wearing makeup.
Well, I was recently sent a Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 Illuminating in Golden Radiance to try out, and I’m pretty much in love. And considering that it makes me look like I spent my weekend on a yacht, this illuminating tinted moisturizer is a definite Monday Morning Must Have.

Why Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 Illuminating in Golden Radiance is a must have:
Multi-tasking beauty products are worth their weight in gold. Laura Mercier Golden Radiance Tinted Moisturizer is solid gold. (No pun intended…) Besides the obvious — moisturizing, this lovely product provides amazing coverage. Not so much that you look like you piled on a bottle of foundation, and not so little that you look like you should. But, just enough coverage for your admiring beholders believe you have flawless skin, without really trying.
And the truth of the matter, is that you don’t really have to try to look flawless when you are using Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizers. They do the work for you. In addition moisturizing and providing believable coverage, the Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer adds a glow that makes my skin look radiant. The glow is one that makes people look twice and ask that question, you know. “You look different, what have you been up to?” And of course in my head I’m saying, “Blogging about Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer dear. Note to self, recommend Laura Mercier to _______.”
Honestly. Every time I wear this tinted moisturizer the compliments come in waves. Tidal waves. I don’t ever want to run out.
The good news is that there is an “illumination” that works for every skin tone, with Golden Radiance being perfect for my light/medium brown skin. And I’m sure that it would work equally well for even deeper tone brown skins. If not, there is Bronze Radiance – coppery bronze beige/ for dark to deep complexions with warm undertones.
Run, don’t walk to your nearest beauty counter that sells Laura Mercier and pick up an illuminating tinted moisturizer. You won’t regret it.
