Our most luminous primer, for a radiant look and flawless makeup application. Best suits light to medium skin tones.

Works Well With

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.

Radiant Finish

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.

Formulation Details

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.

PRO TIP

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.

    This product was a disappointment for me. I didn't realize that I was buying a product that made my skin glow. I live in a humid, warm climate and the shiny effect of this primer makes me look sweaty.

        I bought this product along with the silk crème oil free photo edition foundation (which is awful). I was promised that this product would make my foundation last all day and make my dull skin look radiant again. I've been left really disappointed as this product did neither of these things. Total waste of money!!

          Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer:

          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!

          Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer:

          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.

          Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer:

          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!

          • Foundation Primer

            Q:

            Do you know if there are counterfeit LM products on the market? I ask because I came across LM 1.7 oz primers on eBay for as low as $10. There are several sellers selling thousands of them. I bought 2 as they said they were overstocks from LM liquidation store. The box, packaging and everything looks 100% authentic but the color is not the same as my authentic LM radiance primer. I contacted them and got a refund. Was about to throw them out but was wondering if you have a different formula of radiance primer in different countries, hence the lighter shade. My sephora radiance primer was nude with shimmer. This was a pale creamy pearl color. It says it was made in Italy. I can always send pics if that helps. Thanks! Kaitlin

This Nourishing Crème will rejuvenate skin's appearance and strengthen its moisture barrier while intensely moisturizing and conditioning your skin. Once you have rehydrated and replenished your skin's moisture use the Radiance Primer to get the radiant finish you desire.
