Birchbox Breakdown

Life is full of fleeting pleasures—don’t let your makeup job be one of them. This ultralightweight primer ensures that your foundation stays just where it belongs: on your face. The sheer gel absorbs instantly and clings to both powder and liquid foundation. Bonus: It’s rich in skin-loving antioxidants A, C, and E.

How to Use

After applying sunscreen or moisturizer, massage a generous amount of primer into skin. Follow with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20. (Pro tip: Stick this tube in the fridge 15-20 minutes before use. The cooled gel will have a delightful depuffing effect on skin.)

Best Primer on the market

I Love all Laura Mercier products and this primer has set the bar for primers. For me I like how it helps create a smooth base for the foundation and is available in several formulas for all skin types.

Not the Best

To be honest, this made my skin appear and feel a bit greasy. It is very smooth and silky - but it was too much for me under a foundation or tinted moisturizer. If I were to go with a primer again, I much prefer Smashbox Photo Finish.
