Formulation Details
Fragrance-free. Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist-tested. Talc-free.

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.


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.

Beautiful finish


So glad that I made decision to try this foundation. It covered the red and some dark spots, also give beautiful finished and lasted more than 8 hours.






My skin looks dry and flaky not luminous by any stretch. I can't believe how much this foundation cost me. My skin looks far superior with drug store brand foundations. Never will I waste my money again.

Light and Radiant


This product is light but gives enough coverage without looking thick or caked. It give a radiant glow all over so you don't need to overuse your highlight to make up for any matte-ness from it. Isn't very oily which I love because my skin is oily and at the end of the day it isn't melting off my face.

I don't care for this foundation


I love the tinted moisturizer and use it daily. I bought this foundation for more coverage. The foundation is greasy and and feels very "wet" on the skin. I attempted to return it for exchange and was told it was past 30 days. Not happy




The only foundation I will ever buy!


Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Goes on like a breeze the primer.

Not good coverage


I was replacing this with a L.M. product that had been discontinued and they told me this was the closest thing. I was not close and I was unhappy with the coverage.

Can you please tell me if the Candleglow Foundation is suitable for a dry/sensitive skin. I have a sensitive skin that doesnot tolerate fragrance or silicones in foundations. I have used the tinted moisturiser but am looking for foundation instead now.


This product is ideal for all types of skin.

Hi, I wear BISQUE in the tinted moisturizer and love it. I also have the silk fluid foundation in VANILLE and feel it is too light/yellow most of the year. What would be the closest match be for the color bisque?

Does this foundation contain spf?


I don't believe it has it Sent from my iPad


i am 65 and would like to know if the candlelight foundation is right for me or does the luminocity make soft lines and wrinkles more prominent


I don't think it makes wrinkles more prominent. However, I don't use it anymore because it is heavier than I like. That is, it doesn't disappear into the skin the way the tinted moisturizer does. But that's a personal preference on my part.


I am 69 and find this product to work very well. Sent from my iPad

Naz, Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade Suntan is the closest shade match to Moisture Supreme Foundation shade Suntan Beige.


Hi i have been using Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser in natural and am so pleased with it. Can you recommend which primer to use to make it longer lasting . Also am interested in trying one of your foundations which shade would be comparable to the tinted moisturiser I am using. Would the candleglow foundation be suitable or would you recommend one of your other foundations. I am 55 with pretty ok skin just a few fine lines. Thank you


Sheila, Select a Foundation Primer according to your skin type. For example, if your skin is oily select Foundation Primer Oil-Free. If your skin is dry select Foundation Primer Hydrating or you can use Foundation Primer it is ideal for all skin types. Please, check or website to see which Foundation Primer best suits your skin type. Select a foundation according to the coverage and finish you want. Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation can be worn by anyone. If you are currently using Tinted Moisturizer shade Natural your Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation shade match is Macadamia.
