Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance Review


One of the brands I’ve never been able to get my hands on is the extremely popular Laura Mercier. I know she’s seriously famous for her makeup artist abilities (she made tightlining eyeliner a thing) and lots of her products are constantly raved about on the blog, in particular the tinted moisturisers and concealers. The main product I’ve always wanted to try though was a primer. There’s quite a few in the range, from Oil-free or Hydrating to the classic original, but after some research, I plumped for Radiance… Because who doesn’t want to be radiant right?

What I especially love about this primer is the light creamy formula. Unlike my most recently used-up primer purchase, the Benefit POREfessional (review) which I found to have quite an unpleasant greasy tacky texture, this feels really weightless on my skin. You only need a small blob and I like to just smooth it out across my face, making sure not to rub it in too hard. It’s then best to leave it for a couple of minutes before applying foundation – or just rock it by itself if that’s your thing!

This definitely does provide a nice natural sheen to my face – don’t worry not in a sweaty kind of way, in a radiant kind of way. It gives a subtle glow from within and it’s nice for evening out redness. I also have combination skin and don’t find this has made my oilier areas any more oily if that makes sense! I do think it increases the longevity of my makeup, but probably not as much as the Benefit version… Overall though, I think this is a winner! Now what Laura Mercier product shall I try next…

Have you tried any of the Laura Mercier Foundation Primers? What did you think? And do you have any other recommendations for a great primer?

I’ll be back on Monday with a new post!

  1. I recently opened the Mineral version of the LM primer and I love it! Really impressed with how it kept my skin hydrated and made my foundation apply so smoothly. One of the better ones I’ve tried (I have combo skin with dehydration). I also like Shiseido’s primer – it’s a creamy type and helps foundation go on smoothly too.

  2. I have to LM tinted oil free moisturizer and I love it especially in the winter. This primer looks like something that would be perfect underneath! Great post!
