Review- Laura Mercier Silk Cream vs. Makeup Forever HD


This video is a review on my two favorite foundations of all time.
I have used both for about a year now and a lot of you were asking what i think of them and which i prefer.
I decided to review them and tell you what i like and dislike about both.
I really hope you find this video helpful and if you have any further questions please leave them in the comments below!

Thanks for watching!

  1. @GucciLicious98 It is all about preference! i myself am using the Makeup Forever HD foundation and i most likely would purchase that over the Laura Mercier one because i prefer to apply my makeup with a brush. But again it is up to you, they are both GREAT quality foundations πŸ™‚

  2. @thementalkid101 it is a very good foundation, i think that is why. PLUS the HD foundation is meant for camera/film. Since gurus film all the time, having a foundation that caters to that is preferable. πŸ™‚

  3. I wanna ask.. I have very very dry skin especially in winter.. Then which type of foundation I should use or what can I do to keep my skin not too dry before I apply foundation on?

  4. THANK YOU so so much Tess!!!!! I've been thinking about trying these two foundations for the longest but not exactly which one and you've definitely helped me out big time! Thank you for sharing Tess this was beyond helpful.

  5. I use both of these foundations, but I prefer the Laura Mercier. The Make Up For Ever foundation is a low-medium coverage, so it does not cover my under eye circles and small imperfections that well. I also find that the Make Up For Ever foundation DOES make my skin shiny after 2-3 hours. I can see this foundation being awesome for something like Tess who already has really good skin. The Laura Mercier foundation smells like M&Ms to me! It covers really well and is super blendable.

  6. You're gorgeous! I love watching your videos Tess, seriously!! Could you do a drugstore favorites? Also a skin care routine would be awesome!!! I would love to know how you get your flawless skin.. Do you have the clarisonic?

  7. Has anyone had break outs with the makeup forever HD? Please tell me! I broke out with MAC foundation before (the one that has no pump) so I want to know of this will?…

  8. This is the best review of LM Silk Creme that I've seen. All anyone ever said was that it was great for dry skin so I took the plunge and got it and it's way too thick for it. I tried applying it a bunch of different ways but I never rubbed it in my hands, I'm going to try that. I'm using HD now and love it though. Thanks for this video!

  9. i have the laura mercier and i do love it! realllyyyy wanna try the makeup forever but they dont sell it in london πŸ™ have to get it from gurumakeupemporium so have to guess my colour! xxx

  10. I've heard alot about the Makeup Forever HD foundation and i definetely wanna try it out πŸ™‚ also can you please do a hair tutorial on a disney princess? hehe i think it would be really cute!

  11. i have the lm silk creme and actually apply it with a brush, because it is so thick, its harder to blend with fingers, it ends up looking patchy… but to each his own :0)

  12. Have you tried Revlon Colorstay? Doesn't it smell similar to the Silk Creme?? Lol :p Just curious because I thought of the silk creme one when I first used the color stay… People always complained about the smell that I had to find out for myself.

  13. heyy Tess (: i was just wondering if both foundations give the same finish like the MUFE HD has a sheen i heard (like a dewy finish) and idk if the LM one is the same way or is it more on the matte side? do they both look natural on the skin ?

  14. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DOING THIS VIDEO, super helpful! I just discovered your channel & I'm going through almost all your videos now Lol. I think I might just have a new favorite guru channel πŸ™‚

  15. @LizethWorksIt i have not had a problem with this foundation πŸ™‚ i have really acne prone skin and i break out with almost any foundation but it doesn't break me out…just remove your makeup at the end of the day

  16. You're right hands is the best way… but I DID find one more way that works really great and never makes you look cakey, use a damp *which you always dampen this tool but just in case* but either way, a damp Beauty Blender sponge is wonderful with the LM Silk Cream Foundation πŸ™‚ Has made me fall back in love with the LM foundation, as I hadn't used it for quite a long time… now I need to get a darker color cus it's my Winter Shade… lol great review

  17. Great video! I loved the lm silk creme and used it for a year (one tube lasted the whole year!) but my skin type changed and I found it looked very shiny around my t zone so I switched to Mac face and body with studio finish concealer on any blemishes. I would love to try mufe hd foundation but worry it could be way too much coverage.. Either way, I think I'll purchase it and also repurchase the LM one.. πŸ™‚

  18. Hi just wanted to ask if you have tried the urban decay naked makeup and if so what you thought.. BTW you're my #1 guru I love and follow.. Love your videos and they are so fun and very helpful.. Best of luck with all

  19. Laura Mercier foundation is specifically designed to use with her sponge…..just for your information. It makes it go on smoother. Knowing this would have cut your video time in half. It is non-comediogenic, non-acnegenic. FYI.

  20. I love the Laura Mercier Cleansing Oil! Its so good πŸ™‚ If you haven't tried it, I just finished a review of it on my channel and it is definitely worth checking out πŸ™‚

  21. I dot the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation onto my face and blend it out with my Beauty Blender. It works great! Also if I want a little more luminosity, I mix the foundation with Benefit Sunbeam on the back of my hand before applying it! πŸ˜€

  22. its funny you point out the LM is spill proof bc of packaging and consistency yet the tinted moisturizer (same packaging ) is the only product that has ever spilled on me :S helpful review though thank you

  23. My well being had been destroyed because of acne disorder for countless years. It came to be so bad that I made an effort to hide away. I made use of all kinds of things I was able to get my hands on, but it failed. Subsequently I stumbled upon the Acne Executioner web page (Google it) and my acne problems disappeared. It’s different but I enjoy looking at face in the mirror for the first time ever.

  24. They recommend using the laura mercier w a beauty blender type sponge BUT I was actually on the verge of returning it cuz I didn't think it was worth 45 bucks….til I used w my strippling brush and LOVED it…I don't think it's anywhere near be thick enough to feel u have to use ure fingers though…but I'VE heard others say that but in case thinking fingers is a must turns u off as it would be u might find others way better.

  25. Thanks for the review! You are really informative, which I really appreciate, by the way! πŸ™‚ I can't wait until I try this Silk Creme foundation out! I love Laura Mercier as a brand.
