”I love the oil free line from Laura Mercier! I used to have extremely bad breakouts until I started using her products and now I will only get one every once in a while. The primer makes my face feel fresh and helps the tinted moisturizer stick for a longer period of time. I love this product!”

Laura’s Tip: Place the Foundation Primer in the refrigerator before use; the coolness is extra refreshing and helps reduce puffiness.
As a personal makeup artist to Hollywood’s celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts, and Juliette Binoche, Laura Mercier has perfected the art of flawless, natural makeup. Her eponymous line of cosmetics, skincare, fragrances, and bath and body treats is a global phenomenon that has garnered praise from magazine editors and beauty-savvy customers alike. The success of Laura Mercier the brand is a testament to the quality and versatility of its namesake, with colors both classic and current, catering to women of all ages.
The Laura Mercier Primer line is very versatile since it has many variations to it. This oil-free primer is meant for people with oily skin. Keep in mind that this primer doesn't control your oil and throughout the day you'll be shiny. The consistency is like a lotion and not silicone base so it doesn't keep your makeup lasting as long as silicone based primers. Not bad for a primer but there are a lot of other primers that you can get for the around same price.4 months ago
the primer has a lotion consistency and it's really easy to apply, but what i hated about this product is it absolutely does not keep my oily skin in control. this was the first primer i used, and for a whole day i would have to blot my face with two sheets of blotting paper the first time, and another one towards the end of the day. moreover, when i blot, my foundation comes with it and it just disappoints me so much. i will never buy this product again.6 months ago
It glides beautifully on my face. However, it does not mattify my make up. Like Toni (the girl that reviewed this too), I also had slight sheen on my face especially the T-zone area. When I tried to use oil blotting paper, my foundation transferred on it as well so I had to re-apply my foundation again.almost 2 years ago
This is another best selling product from Laura Mercier. I have this in my kit and I use this on clients with normal skin types. I love how this spreads easily on the skin. It preps the skin by making sure that the skin is hydrated. It also helps lengthen the longevity of the make up.almost 2 years ago
I had fresh face all day long when I started using this primer. It made the tinted moisturizer adhere on my skin longer, gave me a dewy finish all day and made my skin look so smooth. I love that it's so easy to apply, dries fast and instantly makes your face matte. And best of all, it didn't cause any irritation on my skin!about 2 years ago
This product is the first silicone-free and oil-free primer I've tried and I think it is very light on the skin. It smoothens out my face and makeup is easier to apply (and it doesn't "cake" or "melt"). It also has a dewy effect on my skin after a few hours, which is nice.over 2 years ago
Bonus: they help with breakouts, too!
These P145 tubes were made for no-makeup makeup. Props to you, Vice Cosmetics!
