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.

Another lovely foundation from Laura Mercier! I own all of them...tinted moisturizer for sheer coverage, flawless fluide for hot-weather days (it stays put no matter what), crème smoothe for a medium-weight finish, and silk crème for full coverage, really perfect -looking skin. Candleglow combines the lightweight feel of the tinted moisturizer with a just-luminous-enough finish that is not overly shiny in any way, but just looks radiant. Definitely give it a try!

I came to Laura Mercier because I was sold on the Smooth Creme foundation. It is the one shining star out there that can't be found in any other line. I don't like the way LM is going, Several favorites are disappearing. I am very disappointed and other friends in my age group are also unhappy. Maybe it is time to move on....

I would highly recommend this foundation
Comments about Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation:
I have very pale, very sensitive (intolerant) combination skin that just needs a little bit of evening out and this foundation is absolute perfect for that reason. Firstly, the colour I use (Shell) is light enough for me and is not too pink, nor too orange. Secondly, the foundation does not give me any allergic reaction. Moreover, it is very easy to apply (no streaking). I was a little concerned at first that the foundation might become a little bit too dewy, but this is not the case. I feel like this foundation manages to control the more oily parts of my skin better than any mattifying foundation I have ever used. Furthermore this foundation does not clog my pores at all. Finally, the foundation (especially in combination with the translucent loose setting powder) lasts all day.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really like this product!
from Charlotte, NC
I learned if I use my fingers to apply instead of a sponge I get the coverage I need. It's easy to apply and needs to be layered if you need more coverage.

Best foundation on the market today!!!!!
I've found my perfect foundation! It has a beautiful very light feel and a beautiful candlelit glow! I'm 59 and I was afraid it would be too much sheen for my age but boy was I wrong. I literally get compliments on my skin everyday with this foundation. Yes I do Botox, Laser but no plastic surgery what so ever. I've always looked young so when I still get compliments on my skin at this age I tell you it makes me feel great! I've found that my best application is with a blender sponge. I've tried different brushes but I get a flawless finish with the sponge. I always just use sunscreen as a primer and they work perfect together for a flawless gorgeous look. PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING THIS FOUNDATION AND NEVER CHANGE THE FORMULA....ITS PERFECT!!! LM you have a customer for life. I also use your finishing powder and lip liners all I will always use. Keep it coming because your products are superior to any others out there!!

This light weight foundation has the most natural finish I've ever seen in a foundation. No 'cakiness' in sight and my very sensitive skin is happy because it's not reacting to the product and breaking out - even after extended wear of 10 hours . I wear Suntan and the glow is phenomenal! Looks like I've spent the summer in Greece. A little of this product goes a long way and it's my go to from now on. I do so hope this foundation remains in production for many, many years to come. Great formula, well done.

About Me Brand Buyer
I was really hoping this foundation would make me loyal to LM again, but it failed. The coverage is poor, and the texture is sticky. Left my skin looking greasy.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Natural Coverage without Silicones
from Annapolis, MD
I always have a hard time finding foundation because my skin doesn't tolerate silicones. This foundation goes on smoothly with my fingertips, looks good after a long day of work, gives me medium coverage, and actually feels good on my skin. Not heavy and no unnatural "mask" look. I'm very pleased with this product and hope it stays available for a long time.

Another fabulous foundation by Laura Mercier
By Pammie the gardener
I had been applying this foundation with a sponge and the coverage was too light for my skin. I switched to applying with my fingertips and I was able to build a good amount of coverage. I used to use the oil free foundation and was heart broken when it was discontinued. Now that I'm applying this foundation with my fingertips I've found a perfect replacement. For maximum lasting coverage I highly recommend using the LM primer before applying the foundation. Make sure you let the primer dry before applying the foundation.

I loose this!!!
from North Carolina
After being loyal to MAC for years, I discovered that NC45 was NOT the right color for me. I am more caramel warm tone and Amber matched my skin tone perfectly!!! This foundation is light and sheer making my skin look more natural instead of "red" and weighed down with a heavy foundation. People are giving it bad reviews because it is sheer which doesn't give a full coverage look. I love how it makes my skin glow and I get lots of compliments. I would definitely recommend this product!!!

Beautiful foundation - Great Color
from The Woodlands, Tx
Candleglow foundation is LM's best kept secret. I just introduced to it and I love it. I was looking for a foundation that goes on smooth, was easy to apply, has no fragrance and no SPF, and this one delivers. I use a lightweight moisturizer lotion underneath and the foundation goes on very nicely with just your fingers. I love this makeup because the coverage is buildable. I get a wonderful medium coverage with little effort. The soft, luminous "glow" it gives the face is superior to all other foundations I have tried. I am very excited that I was finally able to find the right color to match my skin color perfectly. Although I have a light skin tone, most foundations have way too much pink in them for me. Vanille is the perfect shade for me - not too much pink and not too much yellow. Along with this foundation, I use LM Translucent Setting Powder. Using the combination of foundation and powder, I not only get a soft, dewy, young-looking complexion that I have been hoping to achieve, but it looks as good at the end of the day as it does when I first apply it. I can't say enough good things about these two products. LM, please do not change anything in this foundation!!! It is PERFECT.

Love the colors and natural look
from Knoxville, TN
About Me Budget Buyer
I have fair to medium skin with neutral coloring. I LOVE the color Vanille- it is essentially a perfect match to my skin tone. If you had an SPF powder version of this color I'd be extremely happy (any liquid foundation seems to eventually make me break out), however, I also like the texture and lightness of this foundation. It leaves a natural, youthful, glowing finish. I would say that this is a very good light to moderate coverage foundation that evens out my redness/discoloration well. I have extremely sensitive skin, so although it is my foundation of choice I skip days to give my skin a break. However, my skin tolerates this product better than your tinted moisturizer.
