Works Well With

Revolutionary lightweight, oil-free foundation powder blurs the line between real skin and makeup. Creates a natural, long-wearing, colour-true veil. Effortlessly evens your complexion, smoothing and perfecting skin's appearance. Created to move with your skin, the comfortable formula flexes easily without settling into fine lines.

Water-resistant. Feels light and fresh, wears all day. Instantly reduces shine. Evens skin tone, hydrates, and visibly reduces lines and pores.


Apply Dry for Sheer to Medium coverage and Matte finish.
Apply Wet for Medium to Full coverage and Natural finish.

Ideal for all skin types.

Formulation Details
Oil-free. Fragrance-free. Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist-tested.
Compact includes sponge applicator.

 

For Sheer to Medium coverage, use the dry sponge. Apply just as you would a pressed powder. Avoid the eye area.

For Medium to Full coverage, dampen the sponge, then smooth powder onto face.

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.

I have been using Laura Mercier products for many, many years but now I seriously consider to switch to another brand. All the time, they change the formulas and introduce products with lesser quality. I LOVED the tinted moisturizer creme compact and have used so many of them. Now it is gone and none of the other LM foundations (and I have them all) will do the job. Who makes these decisions? Just bring it back!

      I am very glad I found this product. At almost 50, I am showing signs of aging. My skin has fine lines and it is very dry. I also have lots of skin sensitivities. This compact is great. First, I apply a facial sunscreen, then the Laura Mercier foundation primer - hydrating, wait five minutes, then apply this compact foundation. My skin looks great with it. I have received so many compliments since I started wearing it.

      Comments about Smooth Finish Foundation Powder:

      I used this product for almost one year and every day I look at myself, I feel something strange but hard to tell what's different. I feel upset everyday. Now I switch back to the original foundation powder. I can tell the original one is more natural and full coverage. It makes me look more great than this one. I really love laura mercier's old products. If new products are not working, just bring back original products to make your customers happy.
      I also miss the old version of silk cream foundation...

          Comments about Smooth Finish Foundation Powder:

          I didn't purchase this powder via the website (I needed to see the colors in person), but I do LOVE this edition of foundation powders (I was a fan of the old one too). I have one for when I'm at my lightest, for in-between, and for when I'm at my deepest (they don't go bad, so it's not a waste of money). The colors are tough to maneuver, but when you get it, it's perfect! I use it with different brushes depending if I'm just throwing it on and taking my son to school or if I'm heading to work or if I get a nice, adult-night out. I am a very odd olive-tone because of having a white Dad and mixed race Mom and bounce from the #6 to the #9 to the #11. I'm normal to oily with random dryness. Hope this helps!

            Comments about Smooth Finish Foundation Powder:

            I've never had much success with powder foundations because the finish of most always leave me looking cakey and dull. I spend a lot of time outdoors and have been using a dermatology brand tinted moisturizer for extra sun protection. Smooth Finish Foundation Powder helps correct the color of the tinted moisturizer and gives a more polished finish. My new daily make-up routine has become so simple now and I am protected by the sun!

              Comments about Smooth Finish Foundation Powder:

              This is my 1st time ever to give out review on the Internet for any make up that I've bought. The reason I'm giving the review is because I think this product is absolutely the best foundation powder so far, I apply it with sponge and sometimes with Kabuki brush (if I'm using liquid foundation and this powder is just to seal my foundation).

              I have a good skin but I still have some undereyes circles but whenever I used this powder, I won't even used a concealer. I just used my BB cream or tinted moisturizer and this powder. I LOVE IT. Please LM, never ever discontinue this powder!

                    Sandri, We apologize that the retailer you visited did not have your Smooth Finish Foundation Powder shade in stock and for the color confusion. The foundation shades numbers are the same. However, Laura Mercier website is slightly different because we have included the shade undertone in the shade number. For example, your shade 05 is 2N1 05. 2N1 is for individuals who have neutral undertones. 05 is the shade number or color.

                  Do you recommend using concealer over or under this powder foundation if applying with a damp sponge? Also, is this foundation meant to be set with a powder like the translucent finishing powder even though it is a powder foundation?

                    I don't use concealer, so I can't answer that question. I find that the

                  Q:

                  I use #16 during the summer and fall months when I get a bit deeper because of my summer fun activities. I found this powder at my local seph-ra store and when I went there to purchase another, it was no longer on the shelf?!? They had some "in the back" and I know that this is a tell tell sign of discontinuation! I can not believe that you are discontinuing shades 14 and up---targeted for African American women and lots of Latina women and some Asian women too. Seriously, what are you thinking? It took me two years to find this perfect shade for my skin tone, so perfect, that I can wear it alone and it looks beautiful! In fact, people think that I have gorgeous flawless skin and when I tell them it's a LM powder they can't believe it! They always tell me that they're going out to buy some for themselves.
                  If these tones weren't big sellers for you, you needed in-store reps to remind employees to offer this to customers because I found this all by myself. No one ever tried it on me!

                    SavvyStyleLady, We value your feedback and completely understand your frustration. Laura Mercier does offer a wide range of foundation shade for different skin tones. However, like many cosmetics lines, we continually review our product to ensure we are keeping up with and responding to demand from consumers. Unfortunately, because of very little response or demand for a product, some products are discontinued. Because we did not get a good response from customers on our current darker foundation shades our Product Development Team will be reviewing and or creating other shade to address darker skin tones. Because of feedback like yours, we are looking to expand our darker foundation shade range even more in the near future.

                    Onyii, We recommend the Silk Crème Oil Free foundation shade Pecan or the Mineral Pressed Powder foundation Warm Chestnut. Both foundations offer medium to full coverage, long wear natural matte finish and both are oil free. The Mineral Pressed Powder foundation can be applied dry for sheer to medium coverage and matte finish or apply wet for medium to full coverage and natural finish.

                  Is this product meant to be used alone as a foundation or is it also meant to be used as a setting powder on top of another LM foundation or tinted moisturizer?

                    Pam, The Smooth Finish Foundation Powder is a buildable foundation that can be used wet or dry. We don't recommend using the Smooth Finish Foundation Powder as a setting powder. It is meant to be used alone.

                  In the summer I've been wearing Cashew Silk Crème foundation which is just slightly too yellow/gold for me. What shade of Smooth Finish Foundation Powder would you suggest?

                    Minnie, we recommend Smooth Finish Foundation Powder 13. Shade 13 is in the same color family as the Silk Cream Foundation shade Cashew Beige but does not have yellow or gold undertones. Smooth Finish Foundation Powder 13 works well for individuals who have neutral undertones.

                  I have Candleglow in Vanilla - a perfect colour for me! -- and I do struggle with finding a good foundation match. What colour in this Foundation Powder would be best for me? I am combination skin, more oily in the summer especially and would love to try this.
