Laura Mercier Radiance Primer

Laura Mercier Radiance Primer
Laura Mercier have recently stolen my heart when it comes to bases. Their Silk Creme Foundation has become a true love of mine and is something I will continue to repurchase, time and time again. So when I found myself reading review after review of the Radiance Primer I knew that this would again, be something to find it's way into my heart.

Pre-2013 I was very skeptical of primers. What did they actual do? Would they actually do anything for me? Is it just a gimmick? Well all my questions have now been answered and I am proud to say that I am now a primer-lover.

Laura Mercier has quite a few primer variations on offer of which, I opted for the Radiance version as I was looking for something to give my skin a glowing boost over summer. This product comes out in a pale gold shade with a huge amount of shimmer running through it, hence the radiance title. Once applied, you're not left with a gold face , what you are left with is a complexion that is brightened and glowing. Having a glowing base helps in having a glowy foundation, Laura Mercier Silk Creme being my top choice. Not only does this primer give you radiance like it says on the tin, it also does what a primer is supposed to by getting your makeup to say put for longer. Usually I need a mid-day makeup top up, but when using this primer my makeup is the same 6am as it is at 6pm (as long as I haven't had an afternoon nap that is).

So what is there not to love? Well... the price. At £28 the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer is not the cheapest on the market but in my opinion it is truly worth it, not just for the radiance but for the staying powder. What's your opinion on primers? Are you a primer-lover?


  1. The foundation has been in my wish list for sooo long and now I think the primer is too sounds lovely xx


  2. I have yet to try any Laura Mercier products, I'll be honest, the price tag puts me off, but reviews like this make me want to splurge!! :)
