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.
Our most universal primer, it gives skin a natural finish, with invisible coverage. The lightweight, creamy, water-based gel is ideal for all skin types.
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.
Place in the refrigerator before use. The coolness will refresh your skin and help reduce visible puffiness.

I have been using Laura Mercier primers (usually regular and hydrating) for more than six years. I love the light, creamy consistency and the fact that it blends in so it does not feel heavy on your skin. After using this primer daily for many years I was tempted to try Smashbox and a number of other primers after reading beauty reviews, just to try something different. The other primers made by skin feel like it was suffocating (silicon bases), were gritty or left my face shiny by the end of the day. Lesson learned. When you find something good, stick with it! Laura Mercier primers are very comfortable to wear. My foundation looks as good at the end of the day than it did at the start. I don't need translucent powder over my foundation. I recommend it to everyone. It's good value and you only need a small amount so it lasts a long time. I live in Australia where the climate is very dry and spend time in humid climates in Asia. It works the same regardless of environment.

I have tried all of the LM Primers. I choose to use a primer with SPF, for double the SPF coverage. The LM primer works OK, but just doesn't give my face the same silky feeling of the one that I choose to use. Not that it is a bad product, just not my fav

Makes a difference.
from Lacey, NJ
I've been using this primer for years now and wouldn't have it any other way. It creates a smooth canvas for my makeup and it works equally well with tinted moisturizer and foundation. I definitely notice a difference if I skip this step so I make sure to apply it every day. I love this stuff.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

All day long wear
from Whittier, CA
By far my favorite primer! It really is true to the label, depending on your type of skin. During the winter time I tend to be a bit more dry so I use the Hydrating Primer and it works wonders. During the summer time I can be oily so I switch to the oil free and it works just as we'll. I would totally recommend this primer to anyone!
Best Primer Ever
from Knoxville, TN
This is by far the best primer I've ever used. I've been using it for five or six years now and never skip it. It keeps my foundation going on smoothly. I love it.

i have this product since the start of my career, it's invinsible unlike other products which is whitish and can ruin the exact color of my foundation either liquid or powder..it's smooth, fresh, foundation is easier to blend and stays! I it fits most of my clients ( asian skin -oily) i don't need any other mattifier. And the best part of it is the tube is bigger than the other product than what i paid for..just refrigerate for a fresher feeling! :-)...Highly recommended and worth the tag! :-) pretty up ladies! :-)

The foundation primer is a great way to start the makeup process. I feel like makeup goes on and stays on better when I use the primer first.

This is my go to primer- I have tried a lot but this oldie but goodie never lets me down. Keeps makeup looking fresh and helps smooth out surface imperfections so foundation doesn't pool
