PRO TIP

For the most flawless, natural look, Laura says it's key to avoid over-applying foundation to the middle of the face—where too much formula can accentuate lines and other imperfections. With liquid, crème, or powder, she recommends starting at the outer portion of the face and working inward towards the nose. Focus on one area at a time and be sure to blend well. Avoid excess application around eyes or the contours of the face. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved.

Remember, use Foundation to even out your skin tone. Use Concealer to camouflage imperfections.

Another lovely foundation from Laura Mercier! I own all of them...tinted moisturizer for sheer coverage, flawless fluide for hot-weather days (it stays put no matter what), crème smoothe for a medium-weight finish, and silk crème for full coverage, really perfect -looking skin. Candleglow combines the lightweight feel of the tinted moisturizer with a just-luminous-enough finish that is not overly shiny in any way, but just looks radiant. Definitely give it a try!

Perfect Finish

By 

from Australia

Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:

This light weight foundation has the most natural finish I've ever seen in a foundation. No 'cakiness' in sight and my very sensitive skin is happy because it's not reacting to the product and breaking out - even after extended wear of 10 hours . I wear Suntan and the glow is phenomenal! Looks like I've spent the summer in Greece. A little of this product goes a long way and it's my go to from now on. I do so hope this foundation remains in production for many, many years to come. Great formula, well done.

      I always have a hard time finding foundation because my skin doesn't tolerate silicones. This foundation goes on smoothly with my fingertips, looks good after a long day of work, gives me medium coverage, and actually feels good on my skin. Not heavy and no unnatural "mask" look. I'm very pleased with this product and hope it stays available for a long time.

        Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:

        I had been applying this foundation with a sponge and the coverage was too light for my skin. I switched to applying with my fingertips and I was able to build a good amount of coverage. I used to use the oil free foundation and was heart broken when it was discontinued. Now that I'm applying this foundation with my fingertips I've found a perfect replacement. For maximum lasting coverage I highly recommend using the LM primer before applying the foundation. Make sure you let the primer dry before applying the foundation.

          After being loyal to MAC for years, I discovered that NC45 was NOT the right color for me. I am more caramel warm tone and Amber matched my skin tone perfectly!!! This foundation is light and sheer making my skin look more natural instead of "red" and weighed down with a heavy foundation. People are giving it bad reviews because it is sheer which doesn't give a full coverage look. I love how it makes my skin glow and I get lots of compliments. I would definitely recommend this product!!!

            Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:

            Candleglow foundation is LM's best kept secret. I just introduced to it and I love it. I was looking for a foundation that goes on smooth, was easy to apply, has no fragrance and no SPF, and this one delivers. I use a lightweight moisturizer lotion underneath and the foundation goes on very nicely with just your fingers. I love this makeup because the coverage is buildable. I get a wonderful medium coverage with little effort. The soft, luminous "glow" it gives the face is superior to all other foundations I have tried. I am very excited that I was finally able to find the right color to match my skin color perfectly. Although I have a light skin tone, most foundations have way too much pink in them for me. Vanille is the perfect shade for me - not too much pink and not too much yellow. Along with this foundation, I use LM Translucent Setting Powder. Using the combination of foundation and powder, I not only get a soft, dewy, young-looking complexion that I have been hoping to achieve, but it looks as good at the end of the day as it does when I first apply it. I can't say enough good things about these two products. LM, please do not change anything in this foundation!!! It is PERFECT.

              I have fair to medium skin with neutral coloring. I LOVE the color Vanille- it is essentially a perfect match to my skin tone. If you had an SPF powder version of this color I'd be extremely happy (any liquid foundation seems to eventually make me break out), however, I also like the texture and lightness of this foundation. It leaves a natural, youthful, glowing finish. I would say that this is a very good light to moderate coverage foundation that evens out my redness/discoloration well. I have extremely sensitive skin, so although it is my foundation of choice I skip days to give my skin a break. However, my skin tolerates this product better than your tinted moisturizer.

              I came to Laura Mercier because I was sold on the Smooth Creme foundation. It is the one shining star out there that can't be found in any other line. I don't like the way LM is going, Several favorites are disappearing. I am very disappointed and other friends in my age group are also unhappy. Maybe it is time to move on....

                Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:

                This is a lovely lightweight foundation with a sheer, natural looking finish. I think the most important thing to consider in determining whether you will like this one is HOW MUCH COVERAGE DO YOU WANT? If you will not be happy with a natural, sheer, slightly luminous coverage, you will not be happy with this foundation. There are several other Laura Mercier foundation options that have a more complete type of medium to full coverage. Personally, I use this one for everyday and weekends, and the moisturizing silk creme if I want a full, more opaque looking coverage, and the oil-free smooth fluid foundation when I want a more natural matte finish. The colors for this Candleglow foundation may be more on target with the smooth fluid oil free foundation because I wear the same color in both- Vanille.

                Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:

                This foundation does leave a lovely luminous finish on your face, a finish that is really quite beautiful. I personally would not call this even close to a moderate coverage foundation though, but that is just my opinion. The bad news for me is something in this foundation made my face itch. I used it for 3 straight days, and the itching got progressively worse each day, so I know that I reacted to something in this foundation because it was the only new product I used. I'm just very thankful that I asked for a sample to try out for a few days before purchasing the whole bottle. I know that I'm super allergic to chemical sunscreens (the zinc oxide "family"is fine though) and also allergic to some fragrances, but now I've got something else in makeup that makes me itch. I sure wish I knew what it was. :( Even with my bad experience, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this foundation to others if it meets their foundation needs. It just doesn't meet mine because I need a heavier coverage and one that doesn't make me itch.

                  Would the candleglow foundation be suitable or would you recommend one of your other foundations.
                  I am 55 with pretty ok skin just a few fine lines.

                    Sheila, Select a Foundation Primer according to your skin type. For example, if your skin is oily select Foundation Primer Oil-Free. If your skin is dry select Foundation Primer Hydrating or you can use Foundation Primer it is ideal for all skin types. Please, check or website to see which Foundation Primer best suits your skin type. Select a foundation according to the coverage and finish you want. Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation can be worn by anyone. If you are currently using Tinted Moisturizer shade Natural your Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade match is Macadamia.

                    Jong, if you are currently using Tinted Moisturizer shade Porcelain your Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade match is shade Crème. Crème is for individuals who are fair skin tone with cool to neutral undertones. Vanillé is for individuals who are fair to light with neutral undertones.

                    Sue, The closest Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade match to Moisture Supreme Foundation Sunny Beige would be Dusk. Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundations did not replace the Moisture Supreme Foundations. A great replacement foundation for Moisture Supreme Foundation is the Moisturizing Silk Crème foundations. Moisturizing Silk Crème foundations are also hydrating like the Moisture Supreme Foundation and offer the same coverage as the Moisture Supreme Foundation did. Your shade match in the Moisturizing Silk Crème foundations would be shade Bamboo Beige.

                  Why was the color "amber," discontinued? I went to Sephora to purchase it and they had no idea it was even discontinued, it's my favorite foundation :(

                    Serena, Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade Amber was discontinued due to low performance in a product shade. Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade Chai is a close shade match to Amber.

                    I wear Dune in Candleglow. It's not an exact match to Nude in tinted moisturizer but I like it. It may help to try it out at a department store first. That's what I did.

                  I am fair skinned with slightly pink undertones. What shade would I choose in the Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation? Also, is there a complimenting powder you could recommend that would not make me look matted? I want to keep the glow but set the foundation. Thanks!

                    Tlc, For fair skin with slightly pink undertones we recommend Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade, Shell. Pair Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade shell with Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder shade fair to set your makeup and bring a soft glow to your skin without mattifying your skin.
