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.


Apply Foundation Primer - Radiance over makeup to reawaken radiance. Be sure to pat it on to refresh your look without disturbing your makeup.

Great Primer


Really like how it provides a smooth base with an underlying glow beneath foundation.


Fort Frances, Ontario


Now my tinted moisturizer stays put all day


I sometimes wear this Radiance primer alone, like when I go to the gym. During the work week, applying this first under my tinted moisturizer helps everything stay put and my makeup lasts all day. I apply a little around my eyes and my concealer, eye shadow and eyeliner also stay put all day. Wonderful primer!

Good hughe




I regularly use this product


I use this regularly under foundation. Nice to prevent the foundation from sitting on your skin.

Love this!


I have oily skin and was concerned this would be too shiny looking, but the shimmer is really sheer and pretty. I used it all winter. I will see if it works with my skin during the summer.

Used Daily


Love this product. Use it everyday along with the oil free tented moisturizer! I notice my makeup lasts longer when I use it verses when I don't.

Makes skin look amazing


Makes my skin luminous. Doesn't clog pores. Not sure if it keeps make up on longer but it's saved me from that dull dry skin I usually suffer from in winter. It isn't heavy at all either. Just a little goes a long way.




Love this product.


Mineral powder stays on all day.

I use this all by itself with a little powder and love it! Do not even need foundation. It's just enough:)

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


Kaitlin, Unfortunately, there are a number of unauthorized Laura Mercier retailers and products sold on the market. For authentic Laura Mercier products always make your purchase on the Laura Mercier website or from an authorized Laura Mercier retailer. You can find a list of authorized Laura Mercier retailers under store location on the Laura Mercier website ( EBay is not one of our retail partners. EBay is an unauthorized Laura Mercier retailer. Please note Laura Mercier does not return, exchange, offer mediation or assist customers who make purchases from unauthorized retailer such as eBay.


Did LM's radiance primer change formulas? I just bought one and the tint is much lighter out if the bottle than before. It's now a very pale pearl shade vs a nude shimmer from before.


Katie, we have not made any formula changes to Foundation Primer Radiance. Foundation Primer Radiance should have a light nude tint. Foundation Primer Radiance Bronze is our sun-lit primer that gives you a subtle bronze glow Please contact the retailer where you made your purchase to make sure you were sold the correct product.


Can the Radiance Primer be used under the Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer, or would that result in too much radiance and/or shine? I have aging skin and was looking for a Primer and Tinted Moisturizer combination that would help me look younger.


Dee, You can pair the Radiance Foundation Primer with your Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. Because the Radiance Foundation Primer offer sheer coverage both products will work well together. Combining the two products will give your skin a youthful, radiant finish and a healthy glow.


Would the ingredients in the Radiance Primer cause skin irritation or trigger acne breakouts ?


Lisa, unfortunately, No product is guaranteed to be 100% irritation-free for every person. The Foundation Primer has been thoroughly tested for skin compatibility and safety, with no evidence of allergic response or skin irritation. Even though our products have been tested a small number of people still may be sensitive to certain ingredients.


Can you use LM foundation primer radiance in the under eye area?

I'm a Laura Mercier big fan

Big fan from Sydney, you can use the Foundation Primer under the eye area. However, customers with sensitive eyes should avoid the eye area.


Is this safe to use around the eye area?


Kristy, you should avoid the eye area when using Foundation Primer Radiance.


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.


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.


is this primer good for VERY dry, aging, skin?


Sue, Foundation Primer Radiance is Ideal for all skin types. Foundation Primer Radiance contains Vitamins A, C and E which acts as antioxidants that protect the skin from harmful, aging effects of the environment.


Is this product good for very oily skin? If not which other one is good for very oily skin? Thank you!!!


This product is compatible.
