Review: Laura Mercier Foundation Radiance Primer |
A foundation primer is one of the essentials in my daily makeup routine whilst acting as base for my makeu to stay all day without any slipping or sliding it also can help with any flaws. Alot of primers are aimed at specific things like controlling shine or giving you that added glow. I have heard so much about Laura Mercier Primers and thought that i would give one a go.
I decided to purchase the travel size of the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer to see if it worked for me and also it would be a good size to be kept in my makeup bag too. The primer aims to enhance makeup and foundation wear throughout the day whilst adding a slight glow to your complexion. The primer has a pearl tint which creates a soft base for your makeup. Whilst creating a soft base it also smoothes the skin so that the foundation can glide on easily whilst minimising the pores and creating a healthy radiance to the skin. I find using this mainly on my cheeks works best for me instead of an all over primer as it does highlight blemishes even more but i tend to use a seperate primer for t zone any way so i can still get use out of it.
With a light tinted peachy shade to the primer and a slight glow it is the perfect easy way to enhance your facial features. It doesnt have any traces of shimmer or glitter which i really like and i would say that it would suit most skin types and complexions depending on how you like to apply radiant products. It doesnt add any type of coveage but it does act as a good canvas for products going ontop of it. Its a lovely light texture and doesnt clog pores or feel too heavy on the skin.
I absolutely love the formula and even though it is getting colder and light bases are normally scrapped in my routine i think it is worth it. Im so impressed with the product and really want to try out a foundation from the brand next.
Have you tried this primer? have you liked it?
