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.[1][2]

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,[3] the brand became known for its focus on products to create what it calls the "flawless face",[2][4] 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,[5] the company was sold to Alticor, the parent company of Amway in 2006.
