Additional Information

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.

      Comments about Silk Crème Moisturizing:

      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.

          Comments about Silk Crème Moisturizing:

          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 started using Laura Mercier in 2001 and never looked back. Since they have changed their formula I have been unhappy with the product. They also made the tube smaller but still charge the same price. I am in the process of finding a new brand.

                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.

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!

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.

                                  Rebecca, Silk Crème Moisturizing Foundation shade Bamboo Beige is the closest colour match to foundation shade Sunny Beige.

                                  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

                                  Stephanie, Always apply your foundation before applying concealer. Your concealer color should match your foundation.

                                  You want to apply the concealer first. There is no information available to answer the remaining question.

                                  I tried all of the candle glow samples that were sent to me and I feel that the pigment is stronger in the silk creme not to mention that none of the candle glows looked like the same brown that sand beige did. They were either too pink or too fair.

                                  The color is very light, pale beige with pink undertones. For use on very white skin. Shake well before using to mix the product.

                                  I used to also use Soft Ivory in the old formula. Now I use Blush Ivory and the color is almost the same.
