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.

BRing back the old formula! I

By 

from Pittsburgh pa

Comments about Silk Crème Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation:

I used the old formula for 15 years. I was so shocked when I went to get more and it was replaced. I bought the new formula and it's not anything like the old. They ruined a good thing! I will no longer buy Laura Mercier. I will be going with Bobby Brown.

      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.

        I used the old formula of this product for years. It was my holy grail foundation. When they switched the formula, I was extremely disappointed. It did not even compare to the old formula. The old formula was flawless. It gave me confidence, made my skin flawless, regardless of any breakout, and was my go-to product. I recommended this to everyone and they all fell in love with it as well. I hope one day they decide to bring back the old formula so that I can have the product back that made me feel the most beautiful!

              I used and loved the old formula of this product for years, but I'm also happy with this new formula. It's not as highly pigmented as the old formula, but that's not a bad thing for my very well cared for but mature skin. This new formula in Rose Ivory is more luminous and imparts a smooth finish to my fair skin. I'm quite pleased and will continue to use this as one of the favored foundations in my rotation. To me, this is similar to the YSL Touche Eclat foundation, which I also love for mature skin. Not super high coverage, and definitely not super matte, but again, that's a good thing for me personally.

                I have been a faithful Laura Mercier customer for 15 years. I loved your old formula silk creme foundation and as a make up artist, used it on all my clients as well as myself. I am VERY disappointed in your new formula. There is too much slippage, the foundation settles into creases, the coverage is not as good as the old and it doesn't last very long. WHY did you choose to change something that was so amazing into a very run of the mill mediocre product? I will now have to switch brands. PLEASE listen to your customers and bring back the old foundation!

                  I found the old silk cream foundation 10 years ago and love it!!! I bought 3 the old silk cream foundation when they were on sale and been using it till last month. It was so unhappy with the new formula!!!! The color is not the same, the coverage is not good and it doesn't stay long. The worst part is the smell. It smells horrible, like gasoline to me.

                  Please bring back be old silk cream foundation!!! I feel so lost. I have been trying different other brands, still have not found the one...

                      In the past Silk Crème Foundation (Luminous Formula) WAS the BEST foundation I have ever used and I had so many compliments about my skin when I used it. I was so disappointed when I went to purchase a new supply because the formula had been changed and even my perfect color "Peach Ivory" was no longer available. I tried the new formula with an optimistic attitude, but found it to be the WORST foundation I have ever used. How very disappointing! Though I was a committed Laura Mercier customer, I am no longer and am now in search of a new foundation. Please bring back the old formula.......

                      Saw all the great reviews on YouTube and was eager to buy, then I came here and read all the negative reviews about the REFORMULATION. Forget it! I hate when a perfect product is discontinued and a shoddy substitute is put in place. Former fans, I feel your pain, Clinique did this with their original Repairwear foundation. I still refuse to shop with them. Devastating.

                        Q:

                        I am currently using medium ivory in the silk creme moisturizing foundation. I wanted to know what would be a slightly darker shade (next one up) in the same color/tone family. I did ask the question and the answer from your website was cashew beige in the oil free silk creme. The problem is I really like the moisturizing one and i don"t want to switch. Could you please advise?
                        I thank you very much in advance for all of your help.

                        I have used the moisture supreme foundation in sunny beige for many years. I had to buy the new formula silk creme moisturizing photon edition foundation. The color is off and too light. I bought medium ivory but it doesn't look at all the same as the sunny beige. Do you have a suggestion of what color would be closest to the sunny beige. Thanks

                          Kathleen, Moisturizing Silk Crème foundation Bamboo Beige is the closest color match to Moisture Supreme Foundation shade Sunny Beige. Also, the Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation shade Dusk is a great match for Moisture Supreme Foundation shade Sunny Beige.

                        This is a new foundation line for me which I like very much, but I need a color recommendation. I have blue eyes and fair skin with yellow undertones. A Laura Mercier rep originally recommended Ecru to warm me up but that proved to be too dark. I am now using Rose Ivory but it really washes me out. Unfortunately I can't use bronzers because of sensitivity issues. Any suggestions?

                          Diane, based on your skin tone and undertone descriptions we recommend the Silk Crème Moisturizing foundation shade, Ivory. If Moisturizing Silk Crème foundation shade Ivory is not your perfect color match, we recommend you visit a Laura Mercier counter near you to be color matched by one of our beauty specialists.

                        Q:

                        Two questions: What LM Foundation formula (product) matches or comes closest to your discontinued Moisture Supreme Foundation? My tint shade is Blush Ivory. This was a great product.

                          Alice, The Silk Crème Moisturizing foundations offer the same coverage and long-wearing formula as the Moisture Supreme Foundations did. The Silk Crème Moisturizing foundation closest to the shade Blush Ivory would be Rose Ivory

                          Teagan, because you are lighter in the Winter months you probably would need a shade lighter than Medium Ivory. A shade lighter and in the same color family would be the shade Ivory.
