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!

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....

I really like this product!

Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:

I learned if I use my fingers to apply instead of a sponge I get the coverage I need. It's easy to apply and needs to be layered if you need more coverage.

Best foundation on the market today!!!!!

By 

from NC

Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:

I've found my perfect foundation! It has a beautiful very light feel and a beautiful candlelit glow! I'm 59 and I was afraid it would be too much sheen for my age but boy was I wrong. I literally get compliments on my skin everyday with this foundation. Yes I do Botox, Laser but no plastic surgery what so ever. I've always looked young so when I still get compliments on my skin at this age I tell you it makes me feel great! I've found that my best application is with a blender sponge. I've tried different brushes but I get a flawless finish with the sponge. I always just use sunscreen as a primer and they work perfect together for a flawless gorgeous look. PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING THIS FOUNDATION AND NEVER CHANGE THE FORMULA....ITS PERFECT!!! LM you have a customer for life. I also use your finishing powder and lip liners all I will always use. Keep it coming because your products are superior to any others out there!!

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.

              Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:

              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 don't think it makes wrinkles more prominent. However, I don't use it anymore because it is heavier than I like. That is, it doesn't disappear into the skin the way the tinted moisturizer does. But that's a personal preference on my part.

                  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.

                I'm very lightskinned, and i don't have a Sephora near me. I normally use maybelline fit me in the color 110, so I wanted to upgrade. What color would work for me?

                  Emily, In order to recommend a Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade we will need to know more about your skin tone and skin undertones. We are not familiar with other brands foundation shades and how they would match up to our foundation shades. Please give our Customer Service Team a call at 1888-637-2437 or visit a Laura Mercier counter near you. Our representative will be happy to assist you. Please log on to the Laura Mercier website (www.lauramercier.com) to find a store location near you.
