I was looking for a primer to wear under foundation to help minimize pores, create a smoother canvas, and make makeup last longer. It didn't do any of these things, I wanted to like it so bad too! I even put half on my face one day and had no primer on the other half, both sides looked the exact same. I have slightly oily skin in my T Zone, nothing that makes me hate it just gets kinda shiny but I don't mind the dewy look. This dried my skin out completely so much that I was tight and itchy. I still love Laura Mercier, this is the first product I've had issues with.

Absolutely terrible, did nothing at all - an extra step and it smells disgusting. Do not buy.

This primer is mediocre. I don't have anything amazing to say about it nor do I have anything bad. It didn't break me out but it also didn't keep me very matte during the day. My makeup didn't slide around my face but it ended up fading during the day. And it didn't do anything in terms of blurring my pores but it didn't enlarge them. I like for the price, you get a lot of product. And since it has more of a watery consistency, I can wear it with anything in my makeup collection. I'm not going to buy it again but I might try some of the other ones in her line because the consistency is pretty good. Also it doesn't accentuate any of my dry areas even though it is oil-free. So all in all, not a repurchase for me but it isn't exactly terrible. I say try it out if you want but don't expect a life changing experience with this primer.

Came complimentary with a magazine in a 30ml tube. I apply it after my moisturizer, need to wait for a few minutes so the product settles nicely and evenly on the face. Thereafter I apply sunblock in liquid form. Application of liquid sunblock makes no difference whether primer is being used or not. Thus I imagine if applying liquid foundation there would be no difference as well, I am not able to make a comparison as I rarely use foundation these days. The real difference the primer makes is when I set my sunblock with powder. I use Johnson & Johnson baby power, but I would think foundation powder would work. The powder adheres flawlessly, and looks seamless. Base line- I would think this primer is more suited for a foundation power as opposed to liquid, does nothing to make liquid applies better on the skin. How it holds up? Keeps the skin looking flawless for four to five hours. When face gets oily, can blot skin with tissue paper and the makeup would still look undisturbed and good, makeup is not dissolved by oil on the face. When I touch up, makeup does not turn cakey like it normally does. Makeup stays good for eight hours before is dissolve by oil on the face. However one thing to note is it does not control face oiliness, only makes makeup lasts longer and applying touch ups more seamless. I probably wouldn't purchase it in full size at the retail price, however if I can get a good discount on the product I wouldn't mind purchasing. I have bought additional copies of the magazines to get the complimentary 30 ml tubes. At USD4 per copy I think is a good deal.

Pros:- feels hydrating on the skin- packaging is handy- didn't break outCons: - wore this with the laura mercer tinted moisturiser and it still slides off my face- wore this with other foundations and it was average, foundations do rub off at certain areas- expensive (there are better ones on the market)- doesn't control oil production (oily after 3-4 hours?)Overall, average. Would not repurchase tho.

This takes forever to set? It feels tacky for so long no matter what I do, and obviously foundation+tacky primer=terrible look

So I've been searching for the best primer for my very oily skin. I have told that i should use products that are oil free so i tried our Laura Mercier's oil free primer and It worked really well with my face. I didnt get any breakouts or some sort of problems. I have also read some bad reviews about this but I swear this works out quite well for my face.

This worked really well for me.I have sensitive skin that is combination (oily in the summer). No problems, no break-outs.Pretty expensive though, so if I can find something else that works, I usually will.

hi this product was stated as really good, but i had a DIFFERENT experience. one i find that it does not go on smooth like using bareminerals primer... which i should have never changed. and it gave me acne and i never had this problem. I had to stop it entirely, because it was liken to an allergic reaction, because the ones on my forehead would itch and so to my cheeks.I would not recommend it at all. some have the luck and others don't
