During a meeting at their New York offices, members of Laura Mercier’s product development team handed us samples of their dewy foundation. The creamy formulation, which promises light-to-medium coverage, melted in like second skin and imparted a luminous glow with a velvety-soft feel. We brought it back to VIOLET GREY headquarters and shared it with a community of makeup aficionados at our recent vetting event. The results? The foundation was a unanimous favorite among the ten artists that tested it—and a shoo-in for our curation.
