For my normal skin (cheeks) this stuff is great. Goes on smooth like lotion, soaks into my skin and holds foundation all day with a nice, matte finish. For my T-zone, this wasn't great. After a few hours I had a light sheen to my nose, so I decided to blot, which turned out to be a big mistake. My skin oils lifted away the makeup on my pores, leaving my nose area splotchy with makeup.

I don't know why there are such bad reviews on this primer but it is amazing on my skin. I am so glad I tried it for myself, after reading all the reviews I almost by passed it. Just shows that everyone's skin is different and something that doesn't work on someone else might just work for you.This primer is great under the Laura Mercier Smooth finish foundation and makes it last for hours on my oily skin. I have had it on now for 11 hours and it all looks amazing. It hasn't faded or moved. I have done one powder touch up once during the day but other than that no other touch ups. The primer makes the foundation go on so smoothly. .. i used this foundation previously without a primer and the foundation was hard to blend and i ended up using far too much product. I am totally loving this primer... i won't be looking for a new primer any time soon cause i love it.

I was the type of person not to use primer. I thought it was just a way for cosmetics companies to make more money. Then I noticed that the best foundations, Marc Jacobs, Dior, or Lancome looked runny and caked up even worse than drugstore brands. I finally caved and decided to try Laura Mercier's primer.Because I have never used Primer before, I can't say whether this product specifically gives good results, or if any primer would yield the results. I noticed that using primer a) makes the make up apply better (less smearing and less oxidation), and b) the make up lasts longer (I still pat my nose in the afternoon, but I don't have to reapply over my entire face. I'm not sure what else primer is supposed to do, but I am very content that this product helps my make up last longer and apply more evenly. Other things I noticed about using this, it's so light and discreet that after I use it I don't even remember. I was worried it would feel like too much (moisturizer with sunblock, primer, liquid foundation, powder), but having this did not feel like I had an additional layer on my skin. I knocked off a lippie because it's expensive, and I haven't tried any other primer yet so don't know how it compares.

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
