Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil-Free | Review

The tale of my self proclaimed love for the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free has been told, but there was just something missing. Halfway through the day, my visage would be getting a bit too shewty *read shine* and my thirsty skin would leave things looking a bit patchy. So there sat my old love, alone in the drawer. Untouched for many months, I tried switching up my skincare routine to a more hydrating counterpart. I slapped the tint on again and things still didn't turn out as I had hoped. Alas, I realized that I must get my hands  on a primer...


Being the Laura Mercier fan I am, I turned to the woman herself (by that I mean website...) to match the perfect primer to go underneath her perfect base. After being side tracked by the slightly shimmery eye colors and lip glacés, I finally arrived at my destination and attached the makeup-loving part of my brain to the Foundation Primer Oil-Free. Then again, the sensible side grabbed the travel size in case the option for dehydrated, oily skin didn't work out.

Initially, I tried it under the Dr. Jart BB and scratched my little head as to whether it really made a difference. Then, I returned to the tinted counterpart and was left avec beaucoup d'amour. Fast forward to the end of the day- no shine, just pure dew, and no patchiness, just as good as it looked that morning. Score

In the end, it's not the most versatile option considering it really only works well under other Laura Mercier bases. Nevertheless, I love myself some Laura Mercier, so it's completely worth it for me. It's not incredibly smoothing, as it's a water based primer, but I won't reiterate the becoming obsession again. I thing we have a Laura Mercier roll going on here...

  1. Nothing better than a bit of LM! I use Nivea's Express Hydration one (there's a review on my blog), it's cheap but it does the trick! xxx

    1. Agreed! I'll have to try the Nivea. It's probably a shed load cheaper than the Laura Mercier (something I need to learn). Thanks and talk to you soon!

  2. My cousin uses this primer and loves it! Right now I'm using Philosohy's the Supernatural primer, but when I run out I may pick this one up next!

    1. It's really good, although I've heard of quite a few people not getting on with it. I think it's definitely worth a try, though, especially sine they make travel sizes. Talk to you soon!
