Additional Information

A lightweight, creamy gel with a universal pearl tint that creates a soft-focus effect to visibly minimize the look of imperfections. Meant to be used prior to foundation to create an invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements. This colorless gel leaves makeup looking fresh and colour-true the entire day. Vitamins A, C and E act as antioxidants that protect the skin from harmful, aging effects of the environment.

Ideal for all skin types.

1.7 fl. oz./50ml

Create an even surface first and massage a liberal amount of primer all over the face for a few minutes - massaging the skin is stimulating and healthy for the skin. Customers with sensitive eyes should avoid the eye area. If you wear a sun block or moisturizer, apply before Foundation Primer.

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 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

    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!

    Beautiful, versatile way to look younger!

    Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer:

    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...)

    Comments about Laura Mercier Foundation Primer:

    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

      Q:

      Would the Foundation Primer Radiance work well with dry skin? I have a bad breakout from using another primer and my skin right now is very flakey. Wanted to know if radiance primer will not dehydrate my skin. I was contemplating using the Hydrating variant of your primer but i wanted the shine quality of radiance variant.

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Joyce, to address the issue you are having with dry skin we recommend you use our Infusion de Rose Nourishing Crème. 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.

    • Q:

      I received a free sample from Nordstrom of a Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance. Looking on line and trying to find the right color but the orange or light brown doesn't look anything what I received. The primer that I received is a whitish/pinkish pearl color and it's radiant; absolutely love. Can someone help me find the correct color?
