I don't like this primer. It smells bad, feels heavy and sticky, and it doesn't make my foundation last any longer. I won't buy it again..
This primer just feels really heavy on my face. Every since I tried Korres, I don't think I could ever go back to Laura Mercier. However, I think this primer helps my make up stay on a little bit longer than Korres.
this was my first primer, and i really wanted to like it after reading so many good reviews. although it didn't break me out like it did some people, however i found it too heavy and greasy... it didn't really make any noticeable difference on my makeup. i think a good moisturizer will work just as good... i would not buy this again after finishing the bottle.
This is my first primer and it makes my foundation stay fresh much longer.
smell disgusting. does make makeup last a bit longer. on the look now for something that doesn't smell so completely plastic
I don't usually give such low ratings to a particular product but the Laura Mercier Primer disgusted me. I purchased it just before I went on Holidays in June to go with the Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser (another yuk product). The smell of the primer really bothered me, it was very unpleasant. The texture was light and the application was fairly easy but it did nothing for me. It didn't work with my other foundations (i.e Nars). It didn't make my makeup last longer. And the one thing that really bothered me is the expiry date... if you look at the back of the packaging you'll see that this product only has a product life of 6M after opening.. this is really short, how am I suppose to finish this in 6 months esp if I don't tend to use it much?? Talk about bad product! Not happy Laura Mercier.. not happy at all.
I got this primer as a sample pack, but after the first use, I knew that it wasn't for me. I think I am spoiled by Smashbox's primers. The LM primer has a funky smell, and is a little oily when used on my normal skin. It doesn't fill pores very well, either. I cannot comment on whether it breaks my face out, but I would rather choose another primer. Like those Smashbox ones!
This light primer goes on smoothly and feels really nice on the skin. Especially in warmer months it is quite refreshing. However, this is supposed to be a primer and as a primer it did nothing for me. It did not help my make-up go on more smoothly or even increased the staying power. For the price of this primer and what it does I would rather just buy a light moisturizer. Major fail as a primer and I would definitely not repurchase.
I heard very good things about this primer. To me though I didn't really see a difference in its quality. I feel like Smashbox primers are much better. I also feel they have better packaging that makes it easier to dispense the product. The product is very smooth feeling - very light. I felt like it was more moisturizer then primer. I felt like it didn't make my makeup go on any more smoothly though. Really disappointed with it. I returned it to Sephora.
I did not care for this product. For one, I can't stand the smell (old lady). Second, I find the consistency to be too watery for my taste. I guess I am just used to my Smashbox. I do find that it makes my makeup stay all day, but it does leave little foundation "clumps" on my face throughout the day that I've got to rub back into my skin. And, I find that it makes me look even oilier than usual - no good. I will not repurchase.
