I previously purchased MAKE primer from Birchbox, which I absolutely loved, ran out, and it ended up being out of stock. I decided to purchase Laura Mercier after hearing rave reviews practically everywhere online. I wore it for about three months. I'd put it on at 7am; and by the time I'd get home, my face, especially my forehead, would look greasy. I also started getting a bunch of pimples on my forehead after using this product. I just purchased Pur Minerals primer (also from Birchbox), and within a couple weeks of using it, my pimples are disappearing. I will not buy Laura Mercier again.
Break out city.
*sigh* I love Laura products but this one made my skin break out like no other.
Holds look together
My skin is semi-oily, and I have acne as well as acne scars. When it comes to school dances, I am the most concerned about my makeup being able to stay on. This primer helped my foundation and concealer stay in place, regardless of sweat or oil.
First time I find a product so light with coverage, I simply love it and blends beautifully with my olive skin.
not for dry skin
I have an oily t zone and a few dry areas, I love Laura Mercier products so I think I will try the hydrating primer instead of the oil free.
