Our most luminous primer, for a radiant look and flawless makeup application. Light to medium skin tones.
Free Shipping & Returns plus 4 samples on any $50 order. While supplies last.
Skin-awakening primer brings a healthy glow to skin as it creates a smooth surface for flawless makeup application. The pearl tint helps turn up the radiance and tone down the look of pores, fine lines, and redness.
Prepares for and perfects makeup application
Like all Laura Mercier™ Primers, it creates a perfectly smooth, even surface for applying foundation. It helps makeup glide on easily and last longer, so your look stays fresh and colour-true for hours.
Why Laura's primers are different
Unlike traditional primers that are overloaded with silicone smoothers, Laura Mercier™ Primers are water-based and include a minimal concentration of the lightest silicones. That's why they feel fresh and lightweight, and why they work as well as they do. In addition, they create an invisible "buffer" for your skin, with an antioxidant vitamin complex that helps protect skin against harmful, aging effects of the environment.
Foundation Primer - Radiance gives skin a radiant finish, with sheer coverage. The lightweight, cooling, water-based gel is ideal for all skin types. Pearl tint is ideal for light to medium skin tones.
Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist tested.
Apply on clean skin, or after your moisturizer or sunscreen. Gently massage primer into skin’s surface with fingertips. Follow with Tinted Moisturizer, Foundation, or Concealer—or wear alone for radiant glow.
Apply Foundation Primer - Radiance over makeup to reawaken radiance. Be sure to pat it on to refresh your look without disturbing your makeup.

I use Radiance primer under my tinted moisturizer. I use the tinted moisturizer where I need a little blending which gives my face a nice smooth look. I have been asked many times what make up I use. I think it is how the products are applied as much as what products are used. I am 67 years old and use Laura's moisturizer then Radiance primer all over my face then tinted moisturizer where needed for a natural look.

I was so eager to try this new Foundation Primer as a sample from a Sephora bonus gift. I have had success with the original formula of the FP, and wanted to see what the new Radiance would be like. Sadly, this just doesn't do it for me. It feels completely different from the other types of primer I am familiar with. The glimmer/sheen(?) doesn't look very appealing on my skin. I know one of the suggestions was to wear it with bronzer on top (no foundation) but I only apply primer when I have to wear a full face of makeup. I like the idea other reviewers had on the 'candlelight' effect, so maybe I will keep this around when I have an evening event. Otherwise, I will remain faithful to the original FP.

Lovely but don't use too much
from Mesa, AZ
Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Radiance:
This is a lovely primer. Have learned to use only a few dabs, pea size. If you use too much you have way way too much radiance
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Gorgeous radiant skin
My sister bought this on a whim and I tried some at home - I could see the difference between my usual primer (another well known high end brand) and this immediately. My skin just glowed and looked radiant! I had lots of compliments on my skin after using it so I also decided to buy it.For those hesitant because of the price, I don't have to use a lot to get the desired effect so a little goes a long way. It really does what it sets out to do so I think it's worth every penny!

I tried this within the last month and it took 3 days for the dry leathery skin it left behind to get back to normal. I don't have sensitive skin so not sure what ingredient caused my issue. My eyes and upper cheeks were so dry and the texture was like an old leather bag...I'm only 40. It's back to normal now but I wouldn't recommend this. Wasted my money.

A lightweight primer that doesn't harm sensitive s
My skin cannot handle dimethicone as it always causes large painful cystic blemishes. It it's very difficult to find liquid makeup, sunscreen, lotion, and primer without it. I had finally given up on trying to find a good primer that did not have this ingredient. Now about 2 years later I have finally found one! (The only one in LM line of primers that is free of it.) This makes such a difference on my skin, and it looks amazing! The "shimmer" made me a little nervous right out of the bottle but once I put my LM foundation on top of it it gave me just the right amount of "glow" and I couldn't be happier!

Beautiful, versatile way to look younger!
from Santa Fe, NM
My sister introduced this product to me - we're both over 50 now, but still have oily skin and some breakouts. For several years, we've been using the Hydrating Primer with LM Tinted Moisturizer. My sister recently discovered this when replenishing LM products at Sephora. This primer is a wonderful way to reintroduce a youthful glow to aging skin! You can mix this product with a tinted moisturizer if you want all over glow, or if you're oily, you can easily control just how MUCH radiance you want. For example, I do not apply this product to the larger pored areas on either side of my nose, but, I love the pretty sheen it gives my cheeks/cheekbones, brow area and forehead. I top it off with a light application of powder foundation and the subtle sheen glows thru...beautiful! ( I would give 5 stars if it disguised my large pores...)

This is one of my favorite Laura Mercier products! Not only does it give your skin a dewy look but it prevents your make-up from looking cakey. It's quick and easy to apply before your choice of foundation and I feel like my make-up lasts longer throughout the day.
Foundation Primer - Radiance
This Foundation Primer gives the complexion a healthy glow and ahealthy glow after I apply my moisterizer. Very very nice!!!!
