Laura Mercier Products & Breakouts?

Recommended Posts

Hi Gals! I'm new here and this is my first post on this site...so I started using Laura Mercier products a month ago (I was using MAC Studio Fix Foundation/Powder before). I wanted lighter coverage so I started using LM oil-free primer, oil-free tinted moisturizer, and translucent loose setting powder. After using these products for a month, I started breaking out...but I'm not sure if I'm breaking out because of these products or it's just me...I do have acne prone skin and go through phases where I break out and clear up...I want to see if anyone's had similar experiences with LM products. Just trying to get some ideas so I can see if I should continue using the products....(I really love them so I hope I don't have to give them up)!! THANKS! BTW...this is a great site Posted Image

Hi, welcome to Makeuptalk.

 

I've only tried their foundation and loose powder. Foundation was okay but the loose powder gave me a tiny whitehead sometimes before. But, I don't use the loose powder anymore now, and no more tiny whitehead.

 

I also heard about their primer causing breakouts on some people.

I have tried the pressed setting powder and oil free liquid foundation. I had no problems with breakouts and I am acne prone.

 

Although I only used the stuff for 2 days.

hi and welcome!

i used LM foundation for a while and don't remember having issues with breaking out. but this has been some time ago; perhaps the formulation has changed?

I actually had the opposite happen to me. I used to use Studio Fix powder and switched to LM tinted moisturizer, and my face cleared up right away. I was shocked! I will never go back to Studio Fix. I also have LM foundation, and don't break out from it (I don't wear it very often though). Everyone's skin is different.

I use LM primer and undercover concealer, and while I am extremely acne-prone, I don't think i've had a break out specifically from the LM products.

Welcome to Makeup Talk! I've only used the regular foundation primer, but didn't have any breakouts. I've been wanting to try her oil-free primer and oil-free TM though.

Thank you guys for all the responses!! I love this site. I have a feeling that I'm breaking out because I'm changing makeup products - that happened to me before. I guess it's just my skin's way of adjusting to them. Also, if anyone is thinking about using LM products, they look great....I love the oil-free TM and the loose setting powder...looks very natural and gives me this glow....now i just need to get rid of the breakouts Posted Image ....hopefully my skin will adjust and I'll be back to normal Posted Image

i'm sorry to hear you're breaking out! i use the primer and it's fine and i used the oil-free foundation and that was fine. i also use the tinted moisturizer on days i don't need much coverage, and no problems there, either! good luck and keep us posted.

I also can't use LM without breaking out.  The powders, bronzers and blushes are fine but the tinted moisturizers, primers etc make me break out every time. I switched to Natura Bisse "The Cure."  It works much better for me.

Hi ladies I wanted to add what is causing the breakouts if you are using this powder and you have acne prone skin it’s the cornstarch most likely, And Caprylic Trygliceride ingredient that is of coconut oil with a scientific name. I just want to add that if your acne prone you do not buy a product with bismuth oxychloride or cornstarch or coconut oil. Coconut oil comes under different names. Cosdna, and Skindeep are two good sites to review ingredients.

    • You got a platform right here! 
    • Hello Everyone, I am fascinated by makeup that I keep on watching them, but now I am thinking to build a platform where I can get connected to popular freelance artists and individuals who are seeking for help. Please can someone guide me what should I do about it? Thanks 
    • True.!! There is multi demand of herbal products now-a-days.!!
    • As the weather starting to changed the styling and other things related to human being to changing as the weather progressing to wards sping and wather same as the hair style also changing according to it...
    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
