Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder 05: awesome Fall foundation

Happy Monday Beautiful!
Today is Columbus Day and my son has it off from school. Hence, that is why we are in Carlsbad for  Legoland  Mania!

I brought my sample of Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder in 05. 

It's the Legoland Brick or Treat Party-hence the spookiness in the photo!

The compact is 9.2 grams, and comes with a mirror on top, the powder which can be used wet for full coverage, or dry for medium coverage using the sponge or a light coverage when dusted on with a kabuki or large domed brush.

In the swatch on my hand, the sponge is dry and that is one swipe of the powder. It held up all day at Legoland without creasing or fading. It photographed well too!

I did layer on the Laura Mercier primer with spf 30 on top of my day creme before applying the powder. The primer could have made the powder wear better? Either way, I'm happy! The compact is perfect for travel!

The Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder is available for $45.00 at Sephora, Nordstrom and Macy's and comes in 20 different shades! I am wearing 05, a medium beige with yellow undertones.

Here's a bit more from the website:

What it is:
A second-skin, oil-free powder foundation that can be used wet or dry.

What it does:

It glides on effortlessly, camouflages, hydrates, and blurs fine lines, never settling into them. Ultra fine micronized pigments flex with skin for coverage that is even and flawless. Use it as a sheer to medium powder or build coverage using it wet.

What else you need to know:
This powder is formulated with conditioning agents vitamin E and shea butter to provide hydrating, lightweight comfort. This product is dermatologist and allergy tested and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.

Can one cream deliver seven results? Olay's Total Effects 7-in-1 CC Cream thinks so. This CC cream packs in your daily anti-aging moisturizer, a sunscreen, and a sheer tint. The formula targets signs of aging -- fine lines and wrinkles, uneven tone, age spots, and dryness; all while improving cell turnover and strengthening the skin's barrier against moisture loss. We gave Olay's Total Effect CC Cream to 25 of our readers to road test -- click to see what they had to say.
