Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Review & Swatches

I have always been searching for a good primer that keeps my makeup on all day. There are many things that I like about this product but I wouldn’t say it’s the best primer out there.

I thought the best time to try this primer out was when I was in Spain, considering how warm the weather has been over there!

The consistency feels almost like a light, watery gel and isn’t the typical primers with the silicone base. I always let this settle into my skin before I apply my foundation.
This did keep my makeup on, however not all day. I noticed that towards the late afternoon my face appeared a tad bit oily and my blush had disappeared.

I find that this primer doesn’t do a lot for oil control, however my foundation does apply perfectly on top of the primer and this is probably suitable for normal/dry skins.

I think this would work better in the colder, climate of the UK but it’s not a product I would be reaching for in the summer. I like this product but I don’t love it and I am kinda sad it hasn’t worked as well as I had hoped and costing £28, I am left a tad bit disappointed.

If you wish to try this product all Laura Mercier products can be purchased from Space NK.
