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 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.

    • I’m afraid that this resource does not become a “breeding ground” for viruses that will then spread at the speed of light. Therefore, I advise all visitors to read the https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-free-antimalware/ blog, which clearly states why this or that antivirus and its characteristics are used. Just do not be indifferent to these problems and selfish.
    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
    • Yeah I totally agree  that the trends of fashion of clothes is growing with the passage of time so it's needed for everyone of clothes as make your appearance very obvious and awesome ..
