Your Thursday Face: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (review)

Most of my "Thursday Face" entries have focused on foundations and tinted moisturizers; so I thought today I'd feature something that goes underneath all of that. Here's a fabulous facial item from Laura Mercier.

Foundation Primer

Blurb: Foundation Primer is a lightweight, creamy gel meant to be used prior to foundation, creating an invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements. The colorless gel leaves makeup looking fresh and colour-true the entire day. Ideal for normal and combination skin. Vitamins A, C, and E act as antioxidants and protect the skin from harmful, aging effects of the environment.

One of the best things you can do for your foundation is use a primer – especially in the summer. Primers not only create a smoother surface; they also help foundation last and look better longer. Laura Mercier is the originator of the foundation primer (way back in the 90's), and this product is still spectacular.

It's a clear weightless gel that feels almost like a lotion. It dries quickly, leaving a smooth surface for flawless makeup application. And…yippee! also makes pores look a whole lot smaller. A little bit goes a long way (and does a whole lot)! When I use this underneath foundation (or tinted moisturizer); I get a lovely, smooth, soft-focus finish, and hours of oil-control. What I love best, though, is how much longer my makeup stays put and looks fresh. Even my blush and concealer last longer!

There's also an oil-free formula as well as a gorgeous selection of "flawless face" items on the website. Be sure to take a look at the What's Hot section or explore the new Mystique Collection. Laura Mercier can also be found at Sephora, Amazon, and fine department stores like Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales.
