Review:  I was ecstatic upon knowing that I was going to be a part of the #Influenster Laura Mercier #VoxBox.  I have always wanted to try a Laura Mercier foundation but could not find the right shade for my skin tone.  I love their Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer.  This VoxBox came with a primer which I will review next week.  The packaging is in a sleek high shine black box with white typography.  The foundation is in a clear glass bottle with a gold cap cover and a pump.  I love anything that provides radiance or luminosity on the skin so when this foundation had those words, I was in love.  This has a medium consistency but very lightweight.  It is easy to blend and apply on the skin.  It is long-wearing and it does not oxidize after a certain amount of wear time.  It does give the skin a nice glow after application (it also works well with the Laura Mercier Primer that it came with).  I can't tell you if it is buildable or not since I prefer light to medium coverage.  I was surprised that the neutral undertone worked on my skin tone since they usually have a gray cast on me.  This has a good balance of golden and neutral tones.  If you want a radiant foundation and a long-wearing one, look no further.  This foundation is similar to the Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation and the YSL Touche Eclat Radiance Awakening Foundation but a few dollars less.  I would definitely recommend this if you have dry to normal skin.  I suggest to use with caution if you have oily or combination skin and make sure you use a mattifying primer and setting spray.
