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

Works Well With

High pigment, high performance foundation creates a flawless canvas that lasts up to 12 hours. Makeup artists love how it 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.

Oil-free, long-wearing formula designed for normal to oily 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 Matte finish.

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

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.

PRO TIP

For days when you want the Natural Matte finish and flawless coverage of Silk Crème Oil Free, but "less," add some Tinted Moisture to the mix. The formulas blend beautifully, and the Tinted Moisturizer sheers out the coverage and texture of the foundation just a bit.

I KNOW this is DIFFERENT from the old formula, which was great. But this is an AWESOME foundation in its own right. The people who hate this formula only hate it because its not !ike the old one. That is the only reason this is getting bad reviews. I wish Laura had just released this with a completely new name so that it could be judged without bias. I do think she should put the old one back in production, though, as it had such a huge fan base, it would be a wise and profitable decision. However, this new formula is MY holy grail!! I did like the old one but to me, this one is FAR superior. It is silky smooth and beautifully flawless on the skin. I cant rave about it enough. I am now in fear of the negative reviews resulting in this being discontinued. So I do hope she will bring back the old one for those who loved it BUT KEEP this new one as well! I only use a tiny amount with a beauty blener sponge, and it is gorgeous!!!

If you have ever used the old formula of the product you will notice the difference as soon as you squeeze out the product. The new formula is more runny/liquid than the previous, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The old formula was a lot more thick, but had a creamy consistency. When applying this foundation it covers pretty easily and blends well, HOWEVER after a couple hours of wear the foundation COMPLETELY melts and sinks into every line/pore on my face. I assumed that maybe my problems with the foundation was simply because of my skin type. I have combination skin, a little dry/normal but slightly oily on my T-Zone. After a couple hours of wear the foundation becomes like an oil slick on my T-Zone. You can visibly see the foundation melting off my face (nose, chin, around the bottom of my nose), and in areas where the foundation remains, it sinks in. No matter where you look on my face the foundation just isn't doing it's job.

I have tried this foundation with the Laura Mercier oil-free primer, various pore fillers, and setting sprays. It all has the same effect. After just a couple of hours, my skin looks worse than when I wasn't wearing any makeup. Typically I lean towards more budget friendly makeup options, but within the last year have started to purchase more luxury foundations. For me I struggle with a lot of red pigmentation on my face combined with a very fair skin tone.

One last thing to add, and this may just be the products that I have been purchasing, the packaging seems to fall apart. I've owned 2 primers and three foundations (all with the screw on cap) and every single one of the caps have separated. If I'm paying this much for a foundation, I would like for the bottle to remain intact.

This product was super smooth, easy to blend, gave a full semi matte full coverage look. Unfortunately, within a few hours to seperated badly and my skin got extremely and unusually greasy. I believe this was not meant for oily or combination skin because of the moisturizing affect it gave.

    Comments about Silk Crème Oil Free:

    I have used the LM oil free Supreme foundation for YEARS! I am 44, and have always struggled with acne. Around 2000 or so, I started reading In Style Magazine. I tried the oil free supreme because it consistently was a winner in the oil free foundation category. I can see why!!!! From that point on, I had a go to foundation that covered my acne extremely well and seemed to really keep the shine away. This formula is completely different. I'm sure that it's great for some people, but not for my skin type. I'm sorry, but I now need to go on a hunt for a new brand. :(

      I love this foundation. I apply with my fingertips to the outer areas of my face and work it into the middle. After setting with the LM loose powder the results are awesome. It's long lasting and looks fantastic! The poor reviews could be coming from people that are not applying it as directed (sponge/fingers).

          Comments about Silk Crème Oil Free:

          I used the previous oil free foundation Porcelain Ivory for more years than I can remember and LOVED, LOVED, it! The new oil free product does not match my skin, causes breakouts and for lack of better words, feels like an inferior product from all aspects. My skin is very oily and this product is no friend. The previous oil free foundation and this new version could not be more different. If Laura Mercier wanted to add a new line, then add a new line, but don't take away the product so many of us LOVED! I hate to say good bye but I feel as though I have been driven away by this inferior product. I used the pressed powders, concealer, and many other items. I am now on the search to replace all these products with another another companies.

              I agree with all who are asking "Please, please bring back the old formula.!" This product is nothing close to the old Oil Free Supreme Foundation. I have used the original Oil Free Supreme foundation for 20 years, and was so happy to finally find the Laura Mercier products for my sensitive skin. I was immediately hooked on all her flawless face products and have never bought anything else. If you want to introduce new products, that is fine, but please, please leave the old ones on the market also!

                  I am so disappointed and angry about this product, it is really, really poor quality and not fit for purpose. I have used lots of different brands both drugstore (I've used much better products than this on products that cost a quarter of the price) and high end. This is by far the worst foundation I have ever used! I have combination skin, with an oily t-zone and I'm prone to acne, so I want something with good coverage. This product looks great for the first hour you're wearing it but after that it just looks like I'm not wearing any make up at all. It goes patchy and your radiance primer offers no staying power, or radiance! This is NOT a long-wear/good coverage product! I really wish I'd read the reviews on your website before wasting a load of money because it would seem that I'm not alone!!

                      How do these shades compare to the candleglow foundation - specifically the suntan shade. If I wear suntan in the candleglow, can I wear suntan in this too?

                        Tomboy, The Silk Crème foundations are medium to full coverage foundations that have a natural, luminous finish if you are using the Silk Crème Moisturizing or a natural matte finish if you are using Silk Crème Oil Free. The Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundations offer sheer to medium coverage that is hydrating and lightweight with a soft luminous finish. If your shade is Suntan in Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundations your shade will be in Suntan in the Silk Crème Foundations as well.
