Launching This Spring! Laura Mercier Oil Free Suprême Foundation

When I was in my twenties, my skin was considerably oily, and I loathed it.  By the time I hit my thirties, it became a T-Zone only problem.  I dreaded the summer months and stuffed sheaves of blotting paper in every handbag...just in case.

The silver lining they say, to enduring oily skin, is skin that tends to be less wrinkled in the future. I must say, I don't disagree.  It was worth every puddle.

Over the last few years, readers have occasionally emailed me asking if I had an oil-free foundation I could recommend. In the past, I've come up empty...Now I feel confident I may have a winner to suggest: Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation.

Why do I feel confident that this yet to be launched foundation will measure up to my standards?
Because I already love her Moist Supreme Smooth Creme Foundation and Iluminating Tinted Moisturizer.  Laura knows her way around faces, so if anyone could create the perfect, flawless foundation for oily skin, it would be she, just in time for the warm weather ahead.  Here's the skinny:
