Laura Mercier Cosmetics is a cosmetics line that was founded by Janet Gurwitch. Gurwitch licensed Laura Mercier’s name. The brand’s cosmetics are produced and marketed by Gurwitch Products.
From the outset, Laura Mercier Cosmetic’s goal was to offer “high-quality, natural-looking makeup products for all skin tones and types”, according to the Wall Street Journal. The brand became known for its focus on products to create what it calls the “flawless face”, a concept derived from Mercier’s reputation for promoting naturalistic makeup. In 2012, it became the official cosmetics brand of Project Runway All Stars Second Season.
