Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance

I’m a firm believer in using makeup primers to achieve the most flawless look.  Laura Mercier has always been known for excellent primers, so I had high expectations for this new Foundation Primer – Radiance.   Read on for my thoughts.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance combines skincare properties with a canvas-perfecting formula. There are at least two things that are dealbreakers for me when I use a primer. First, I don’t like a heavy silicone feeling and second, I don’t want sparkle.  Thankfully, this primer has a lightweight feel and makes your skin glow. Glow!

What this Radiance primer also has in it’s formula is good-for-skin antioxidants, Retinyl Palmitate and Squalane for skin smoothing and light diffusers, which make skin look fantastic. So that when you layer foundation on top, you have a smooth canvas with a lit-from-within-look. It’s perfection. Of all the primers I have (and that’s a lot!), this is my absolute favorite.

Apply Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance onto clean skin or after you’ve applied moisturizer.  The product comes out of the tube with a slight peach tint; no worries–it dries to a clear finish.  Apply your foundation next.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance retails at $32.  It’s in department stores including Nordstrom, at Sephora and at
