Nothing special about this primer as far as I could tell, and the staying power isn't great. But it didn't break me out and plays well with the tinted moisturizer.

It did help smooth my skin and blur pores and imperfections but I have oily skin and it broke me out and made my skin really oily by the end of the day. My nose was shiny AF! I only used it cuz my mum had bought it for me after loving it herself and I'd run out of my usual primer. I never usually get spots anymore but after 3 days of using this I had 4.

I'm a big fan of Laura Mercier products but not this one. I don't wear foundation make-up every day, so that might have something to do with the problems I've had with this product. The first time I bought it, the primer got rancid, it had an awful smell. I bought it a second time and the same thing happened. I would not buy this product again.

I used the oil-free and the radiance primers. The oil-free is rubbish! It did absolutely nothing for me at all - its just an overpriced moisturiser...and even then, there are much better and cheaper moisturisers out there. It didnt make my foundation last longer, didnt make it apply any smoother or look more even. Its just nothing. The radiance primer was okay - it made my skin look more brighter and less dull, which is great as I have dry skin. But again it didn't make much difference in the application and longevity of my foundation. Its nice that you get 50 mL worth of product but still - the product itself is rubbish, so no thanks, Laura Mercier!

I have combination skin with a rather oily t-zone. For that reason, primers have been a no-go for me, as everything, and I mean everything, makes my t-zone more oily. Some primers have also managed to make the rest of my face oily, which in itself, is a feat. I've tried lots of them, but they just haven't worked on my skin. Well, enter Laura Mercier foundation primer! I received a large sample and then rushed out and bought the full size.This is an excellent primer for me. It evens out my skin and blurs my pores. It doesn't make my t-zone more oily (it actually controls the oil a bit) and it makes my makeup (cc cream, primer and powder, in that order) last a lot longer. I don't like primers that add "glow" to my face and I'm happy to say that this one doesn't. It doesn't clog my pores or aggravate my sensitive skin. I love it!

I think this primer is just kind of average, unless you are buying the radiance primer. This is definitely a step up from Smashbox primers, which I tried to love, but just could not live up to expectations. I find that there is not much of a difference between having this on and not using the product. The flip side is that this does not break me out or feel tacky or greasy on the skin.

I appear to be in the minority that finds this underwhelming. It has a nice texture and blends well. However, I saw no difference in appearance vs using no primer.

This primer works like a dream.Laura mercier claims that it is a lightweight creamy gel. I completely agree it is lightweight and feels so fresh on the skin, it has vitamins a c and e in which is supposed to protect skin from ageing. It made my skin feel beautiful and didn't cause any breakouts. It has made every foundation I use look amazing I'd recommend it to anyone.Use before foundation.

I like this primer, its kind of a gel texture and keeps the foundation set all day, the only gripe I have with it is that after putting it on it needs a minute or two to 'set' before you can apply your foundation.It is expensive but it's a good primer.

My first high-end primer and I have to say this is the best I have ever tried. Most of the primers I have used make skin smoother however leave the skin a bit drying so it's harder to blend foundation on top. But this LM primer gives the right amount of smootheness and mattifying effect without taking out the natural glow of my skin. My regular foundation sits well on top of it and blends nicely. I also like to use it on its own when I don't feel like wearing foundation but need to look smooth while keeping the oil at bay. However I might not repurchase because I'm not really a fan of primers. To me, maintaining a healthy skin with skin care is more essential to make it look great than the instant-but-temporary effect of primer.
