CLAIM TO FAME: A lightweight gel primer that minimizes imperfections for a luminous look

FAST FACTS: Primes, protects, and nourishes with vitamin A, C, and E; visibly minimizes the look of flaws with a universal pearl tint for a soft-focus effect; lightweight, creamy gel formulation creates an invisible layer to protect skin from outside elements; leaves makeup looking fresh and color-true all day

PERFECT FOR: Normal skin types

I was skeptical but this actually works

”OK, so I used to never wear primer under my foundation because I didn’t think it mattered that much, but I decided to give this a shot and am so glad I did. I have light-medium combination skin and generally wear a powder foundation; my problem was that my skin looked kind of dull and wan all the time. The first day I added this primer into my makeup routine, I immediately noticed a HUGE difference in my face. My skin was glowing and looked soft and smooth and healthy. It’s expensive but I really think it’s worth it.”

Radiant glow

I am absolutely obsessed with this primer! I use it under a light tinted moisturizer and it gives me this amazing dewy glow that lasts all day. It just looks so fresh and naturally pretty. It's the perfect illuminating product—no enormous sparkles on your face, and definitely no shine or grease. Instant HG!

Highly Recommended!

I just got a small deluxe size of this Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (Radiance) from a gift set that I got some time ago. I like how this primer preps my skin before applying my foundation. It really adds that subtle glow and radiance to my skin instantly. It makes my make up dewy and fresh.

Holy grail!

I have tried a lot of primers but hands down, this is the best all around. I love this primer! Gives my skin a very dewy complexion without looking shimmery. I use it under my foundation and it looks like my skin has been airbrushed and it lasts for hours. Oh my goodness! Dewy RADIANT goodness. Would repurchase 😍

Enoying it!

Imo, Laura Mercier has the best primers. I have only been using this for a few weeks, but im really enjoying it! I use this with a little face powder if I want just "something" on my face. I have not use used it as a true primer, so I cant say how it holds up through the day. I just like it to give a healthy quick glow. Love!

Fake that healthy glow!

I absolutely adore this product. It's lightweight but long-lasting, and has a slight peachy tint and a dewy, luminous finish. It helps in minimizing the discolorations on my face and even makes the dark circles under my eyes less pronounced. I wear this on its own or with a dab of translucent powder on my t-zone during hot, humid days.
