Review: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

I've been meaning to try out some of Laura Mercier's products for a while as I know they go down well in the blogging world and I admit that I am a bit of a sheep in that aspect. One of the products I most wanted to try was the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. Luckily for me, I spotted one on a blog sale and managed to nab it before anyone else did.

It was only when I was trying to find the original price for this product that I realised how many different versions of the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer there is. Hydrating, Radiance, Radiance Bronze... Luckily I think I managed to purchase the Original which is the best place to start when you're a bit unsure.

What Laura Mericer say about their Foundation Primer:
"Foundation Primer is a lightweight, creamy gel that creates the perfect canvas for make-up application."

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this product but when squeezed out of the tube it is a thick, creamy gel like substance. I squeezed out the smallest amount onto my fingers then worked it all over the skin. When rubbed in I found the Primer much easier to work with and it settles into the skin nicely without feeling greasy or sticky.

I then applied my Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation over the top. That in itself is a long lasting foundation but when paired with this Primer I found that it lasted literally all day without fading or wearing at all. I even tried the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer underneath a cheaper foundation which wears quite a bit throughout the day and again, when paired together my foundation lasted all day.

Overall, I really do love this Foundation Primer. It's really easy to apply and a little goes a long way so you only need the smallest amount for the whole of your face. It feels lightweight and silky on the skin and creates the perfect base for your foundation whilst making it last all day long. Once I run out of this bottle I will definitely be re-purchasing!
