Makeup artist and fan favorite: Medium-to-Full coverage foundation, with a photo-ready, Natural Luminous finish.

Works Well With

High pigment, high performance, hydrating foundation creates a flawless, radiant canvas that lasts up to 12 hours. Makeup artists love how this award-winning formula feels comfortable on skin while hiding even hard-to-cover imperfections—and how natural it looks for selfies, photos, video, and special events as well as for everyday wear.

Moisturizing, long-wearing formula designed for normal to dry skin. Smooths skin texture and visibly evens skin tone. Colour-true pigments virtually disappear on skin for smooth, even application and blending.


Medium to Full coverage—Laura's fullest coverage.
Natural Luminous finish.

Ideal for normal to dry skin types. (If your skin is on the oily side, try Silk Crème Oil Free.)

Formulation Details
Oil-free. Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist-tested.

 

Shake well, then dispense a small amount onto the back of your hand and apply to face with Laura’s Egg-Shaped Sponge or fingertips. For best results, use after your preferred Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.

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.

Yes, this is different from the Original, but I think it's a beautiful foundation, and I was a lover of the old silk creme. This one is more natural-looking. It can't really be compared to the old one, but it's just a nice and in fact, I find it more realistic looking. I understand why people loved the old one, however. The old one was very economical because you could hardly use any, get coverage, and a tube lasted a long, long time. This formula does not last as long because you do need to use more for full coverage. But I still love the new one and would buy it again. It was easy to find a color match, although it has a completely different name than the original silk creme I used (peach ivory) and I use a different color in the new oil free formula than in this formula! Don't know exactly why the colors can't be more consistent across the board. The same color in this formula was either lighter or darker than in the oil - free version. But, I was able to find my match, and again, I think this is a great new foundation too.

I have bought both of these formulas--the Photo Edition Regular and the Photo Edition Oil-Free-neither of these works and/or compares in the least to the old Silk Crème Formula. If all/most of your customers are telling you that this new "formulation" is a huge fail and you fail to acknowledge and bring back the old formula--I plan to not purchase ANY LM product again. Not trying to be threatening here--but the old formulation/foundation was an absolute JOY to use and the "FOUNDATION" of my entire make-up routine. This new formula is drying-not radiant,not luminous--just completely blahhhhh. Hope YOU LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS-if not-then that shows you don't care about them--and I will have to find another BRAND.

              I was suggested Ivory, and it's yellow on my face. This was to have been a substitute for the Warm Ivory in the Smooth Cream in the jar that you've discontinued (according to the shops) but coming up as 'sold out' on here. Why do you do these things? Not very impressed with the company as it seems from these reviews you don't listen!

                  I loved the old formula in the glass jar for dry skin. I have sensitive skin and redness around my nose,mouth which does not look good with concealer. The new one does not cover and is greasy. It seems to be gone an hour later. Plus it is slightly irritating - the smell reminds me of stage greasepaint. Also there is no more of my beloved Sunny Beige color - I have purchased two colors and none is as good. I have used the old version for 5 wedding parties all of whom looked incredible and I have encouraged many converts to the old formula. Very sad! Don't know where to start looking for a replacement as I have been a dedicated Laura girl for more than 10 years now.

                      I almost didn't try this foundation because of the negative reviews but I'm so glad I did! Admittedly, I never used the "old formulation" (which must have been liquid gold) but the new formulation is great. It has great coverage for my old acne scars while not completely hiding my freckles and still feels lightweight and doesn't make me feel like I'm wearing a mask. I don't have any problems with it causing breakouts and it works for my very sensitive skin. Also, the color happens to match my skin tone perfectly. I saw a recommendation to apply it with a Beauty Blender sponge and I second that. If you've never used this foundation before, give it a try, I bet you'll love it.

                                I used the old silk foundation formula for 8 years and loved it. It had great coverage and my skin looked flawless. I hate the new formula. Little coverage and color not the same. Why would you change something so good. Won't be purchasing any Laura Mercier products again unless old formula is brought back.

                                  Can you help me buy a Shade, I wear number 3 in charlotte tilbury light wonder and N2 in Mac Studio face and body, I don't like heavy heavy coverage, my problem with them is the glide off my face in no time and cause patchy powdery look while it's disappearing. Recommend a primer also and a powder and concealer if possible. I've heard great things about Laura mercies and would love to try it. Ivhe dark brown hair, hazel eyes, warm tone to skin, red patches on skin in later years not sure if blockages from make up or aging reasons. I have combination skin, oily at nose can be dry/dehydrated on cheeks that's why it slides off

                                    Hi - I am not sure what shade you would need. I used to wear a blush ivory in Laura Mercier, but I have found the Trish McEvoy Fair is a closer match for me. I could not find a color match in any Laura mercier foundations that really works for my skin color; they all seem too yellow or tan for me. However, I have very fair skin, blond, blue eyes. I also have red patches, but mine is rosacea. I have tried Trish McEvoy tinted moisturizer and two different foundations and love them all. I have no problem with the products being heavy, or gliding off my face. I do prefer Laura Mercier eye shadows and setting powder, and Charlotte Tilbury mascara and powder pencil (Sophia or Audrey) for eyes.

                                    Mar, Silk Crème Moisturizing foundation did not replace the Crème Smooth foundations or the Moisture Supreme Foundations. However, the Silk Crème Moisturizing foundations are a great alternative foundation for the two discontinued foundations.

                                    Gail, Because we are not familiar with Clinique's foundation shades and how their shade would match up to Laura Mercier foundation shades, we recommend you give customer service a call at 1888-637-2437. Our representatives will be able to assist you with matching a Silk Crème Moisturizing foundation shade. You can also visit a Laura Mercier counter near you. Our counter representatives will be happy to assist you as well.

                                    Moo, In order to match you with a Silk Crème Moisturizing shade we would need to know more about your skin tone and skin undertone. We do not mail samples directly to customers. To test a product or to request a sample, please visit your local Laura Mercier counter.

                                    I bought Warm Ivory - too light. I bought Bamboo Beige - better but a little warm toned compared to Sunny Beige. Now I mix. (Laura, please bring back the old formula with Sunny Beige!)

                                    I use warm ivory. It's a close match.

                                    I ordered Bamboo Beige but I can't tell if this has red or not. I have cool
                                    undertones and this tends to wash me out. I mix it with LMs natural
                                    illuminating moisturizer and this works well for me. Good luck - Ellie
