Life is full of fleeting pleasures—don’t let your makeup job be one of them. This radiance-boosting primer helps ensure that your foundation stays just where it belongs: on your face. The pearlescent formula absorbs instantly, creating a smooth base for makeup and increasing skin’s luminosity.

How it Works

This fast-absorbing formula helps mask skin imperfections with a subtle pearl tint. It clings to both liquid and mineral foundation, for a fresh-looking finish that lasts all day.

Wish I would have bought this!!

I tried this out at a make-up counter and didn't buy it because I got a sample and wanted to try it out for awhile first. I really love this product but there isn't anywhere to buy it in my town so I settled for something else and was really disappointed. Definitely plan on purchasing this next time I get the chance.

Love it!
Purchased

Great primer, I bought the larger bottle after trying the smaller one. Gives a great finish, and my husband has been complementing my skin lately. Goes on easy, not oily, and gives a great shine to your skin underneath your foundation. Love it!

This primer gives my face a healthy glow and foundation goes on perfectly over it! I can't go without it after trying it!

Silky

I really love this primer because it provides a silky base for my other makeup. On more "low maintenance " days I've worn it alone and have liked the dewy look it gave my skin.

Good

This can be worn alone or under your foundation...it is a light texture. This is good stuff! Plus the package size means it will last forever....

really like it

this product is very good - not too heavy on the face, gives a nice little glow and sets up well for foundation (or, in a pinch), to wear alone. too bad so expensive. :(

Love this product!

I was in desperate need of a foundation primer and this product gives a little something extra. My foundation now stays put throughout the day and I also find my skin has a hint of glow!

love it!

I absolutely love this primer. I wish it wasn't so expensive though. I just ordered more. It makes my skin glow and my foundation goes on more evenly

Very nice with or without powder

Adds a nice glow to my skin on face and neck either with or without foundation and/or powder. I'm very happy with it and will continue to purchase this.

An all-time favorite

I love almost everything I've tried by Laura Mercier, and this is my favorite Laura Mercier product. It feels like silk going on my face, just a very light layer that helps minimize the appearance of pores and makes the most of my foundation coverage.
